WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A landlord is suing to keep a Kansas doctor from performing abortions at the space she leases in Wichita.

Abortion services haven't been offered in Wichita since Dr. George Tiller was gunned down while serving as a church usher in May 2009. Tiller was of the nation's few late-term abortion providers.

A lawsuit filed this week by Foliage Development seeks a temporary restraining order to keep Dr. Mila Means from performing abortions at its office complex.

Means does not plan to perform late-term abortions.

Foliage Development argues that performing abortions in the building would be a disruption and nuisance to other tenants and create an unsafe environment.

Kari Ann Rinker, state coordinator for the National Organization for Women, says Means is within her rights to practice medicine at the facility.
