Identity of New Wichita Abortionist, Cheryl Chastine, Uncovered
Wichita, KS – Through an undercover investigation conducted by Operation Rescue, it has been learned that Chicago area abortionist Cheryl Chastine has made plans to fly to Wichita to provide abortions at South Wind Women’s Center, a proposed new abortion clinic located in George Tiller’s former abortion building on East Kellogg.
Chastine, 31, graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Medicine in 2009. She was first licensed to practice medicine in Illinois in August, 2011 and obtained licensure in Kansas on January 17, 2013. Chastine currently works at Total Wellness, Inc. in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.
In what appears to be a “bait and switch” tactic, Chastine has filed to open a Professional Association under the name “Wichita Medical Center” at the same address as the proposed South Wind Women’s Center, operated by former Tiller lobbyist Julie Burkhart, who has no medical license or training.
Kansas law requires that clinics that provide medical services be owned by licensed providers. (K.S.A. 17-2706)
