Anti-Abortion Group Pushes for Tiller Subpoenas

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Abortion opponents are citing a Topeka woman's story as a reason to allow a grand jury to subpoena records from Dr. George Tiller.

The Wichita abortion provider is resisting subpoenas from the grand jury in Sedgwick County. The Kansas Supreme Court plans to hear arguments Tuesday on whether Tiller must comply with the subpoenas.

Abortion opponents forced the county to form the grand jury.

The anti-abortion group Kansans for Life had a news conference Monday. Participating was Michelle Armesto-Berge, who had an abortion at Tiller's clinic in 2003. She questions whether Tiller followed state law.

Tiller's lawyer have said he follows the law.

Tiller attorney Dan Monnat did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
