Man Brings Explosives Into Kansas Abortion Clinic

Moises R. Trevizo, 20, has been charged with unlawful possession of explosives.

A man in Wichita, Kansas, reportedly had no anti-abortion motives when he brought a small homemade explosive device into a women’s health clinic while applying for a job, police said Tuesday.

The 19-year-old was homeless and carrying everything he owned in his backpack when he went to the South Wind Women’s Center for a Monday interview, Wichita police spokesman James Espinosa said.

A security officer at the clinic, one of three in Kansas that provide abortions, searched the backpack and called police after finding knives and a small bottle with gunpowder inside and a fuse, according to USA Today. The building was briefly evacuated.

Kansas has been a hotbed of anti-abortion activity over the past three decades.   On the morning of May 31st, 2009, a Wichita, Kansas doctor who performed late-term abortions – Dr. George Tiller – was shot at his church.
