The court hearing for a pastor accused of stalking the woman who opened an abortion clinic in Wichita has been delayed until next week.

Thursday's hearing has been reset for April 18.

Julie Burkhart, executive director of the Trust Women's clinic has obtained a temporary protection-from-stalking order against Mark Holick. She is seeking to make it permanent.

Holick's attorney has filed a motion to dismiss the case, arguing Holick's religious and political speech is protected by the First Amendment.

The abortion-rights group opened a clinic offering abortions and other medical services in the building where abortion provider George Tiller had his clinic before he was gunned down in 2009 in his church.

A court filing says Holick pointed a sign at Burkhart's house that read, "WHERE'S YOUR CHURCH."
