WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The lawyer for a Kansas abortion opponent accused of threatening a physician doctor says the doctor has abandoned plans to perform abortions at her Wichita practice.
The Justice Department has sued Angel Dillard, of Valley Center, under a law protecting access to reproductive services. The government contends Dillard threatened Dr. Mila Means in a letter saying someone might place a bomb under her car.
Means once trained to perform abortions. But Dillard's lawyer said in a court filing Thursday that Means no longer intends to perform the procedure.
Means did not return a message Friday seeking comment.
No abortions have been performed openly in Wichita since Dr. George Tiller was shot to death at his church in May 2009 by anti-abortion activist Scott Roeder.
