WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A new clinic offering abortions and other medical services to women has opened in Wichita nearly four years after Dr. George Tiller was murdered.

The South Wind Women's Clinic saw its first patient Thursday in the building where Tiller practiced. The building was purchased by the abortion rights group Trust Women Foundation.

The group's spokeswoman, Kerry Townsend Jacob, cited privacy rights in declining to say whether its first patient, a Wichita woman, had an abortion or some other service.

The clinic opened uneventfully on Wednesday but did not have a patient scheduled until Thursday.

No abortions have been performed openly in Wichita since the death of Tiller, who was one of the nation's few doctors performing late-term abortions. He was gunned down at his church by an anti-abortion zealot in May 2009.
