The abortion clinic formerly operated by the late Dr. George Tiller in Wichita has been purchased by a group that intends to reopen it as a medical facility offering abortions and other services.

Trust Women Foundation Inc. Executive Director Julie Burkhart says her Wichita-based nonprofit bought the clinic in late August. An attorney for Tiller's widow also confirmed the sale.

Burkhart is a former Tiller employee. She has said in the past that she was involved in efforts to open a new clinic in Wichita. The city has been without an abortion clinic since Tiller was shot to death at his church in May 2009 by a man who opposes abortions.
