Dear Common Dreams Readers: Common Dreams is a small non-profit that exists only because of the support of our readers. No advertising; no paywalls: our content is free. But our costs are real. A free and independent press is essential to the health of a functioning democracy. Independent journalism and democracy itself have never been more fragile, more at risk than now. Without your support, we will not exist. Will you join again with those readers who have come forward to make sure Common Dreams has a future?Every donation makes a difference.
The non-profit Trust Women Foundation has bought the Wichita abortion clinic formerly operated by Dr. George Tiller, who was murdered in 2009 by an anti-abortion zealot, and will reopen it as a family and women's health center that will also offer abortions. Onward.
