Sad anniversary: Christin Gilbert death

Christin Gilbert, a 19-year-old developmentally disabled woman, was brought from Texas to George Tiller's Wichita abortion facility for a 3rd-trimester abortion. Christin had Down Syndrome and was legally incompetant, unable to give her consent.

Christin had been raised by her family in a small Texas town, according to Operation Rescue West. She was mainstreamed into her local high school, where she served as a bat girl for the softball team. She graduated in 2004.

During the abortion, something went wrong. Tiller employee Marguerite Reed called 911.

Operation Rescue West documented Christin's transport by ambulance from Tiller's facility to Wesley Medical Center on January 13, 2005, and verified that she died of abortion complications later that day.

Tiller is a member of the National Abortion Federation.
