(Newser) – The pro-life group that long tried to shut down the abortion clinic of slain doctor George Tiller wants to buy the Kansas site for office space, an offer Tiller’s attorney dismisses as a publicity stunt, the AP reports. The Tiller family announced yesterday that the clinic offering third-trimester abortions would close. The building and land are appraised at $734,000.
