WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The Justice Department has asked a federal judge to order a Kansas anti-abortion activist to answer questions about her relationship with the convicted murderer of abortion provider George Tiller.
The department also wants to compel Angel Dillard to admit she made statements to The Associated Press in which she said she admired Tiller's killer.
The Justice Department has accused Dillard of sending a threatening letter to a Wichita doctor who was training to offer abortions.
A federal magistrate on Thursday extended until Dec. 5 the deadline for the defense to file a response to the Justice Department's request.
The government has argued the relationship and Dillard's public statements are related to the letter she sent. Dillard contends the demands violate her First Amendment freedoms.
