A Kansas abortion clinic was evacuated Monday after a man brought in explosives and knives, CBS News reports.
The man, who wasn’t named in news reports, was taken into custody at South Wind Women’s Center after the staff called police. The clinic is the same one that murdered abortion doctor Dr. George Tiller worked in and has been the target of protests and violence by anti-abortion activists in the past.
Local KWCH reports the device was “active and set to go off.” The bomb was wrapped in a box sealed with tape. It was detonated off-site by the bomb squad.
Police said they are investigating the man’s intentions.
“He was very forthcoming about it, he wasn’t trying to hide it,” Witchita police Capt. Doug Nolte told KSN. “He was here to do some business with the clinic.”
The clinic is one of three that provides abortions in Kansas.
Tiller was shot and killed by an anti-abortion activist in 2009 while ushering at church.
The same building was firebombed in 1986 and Tiller was shot and wounded there in 1993, KSN reports. The clinic was re-opened after Tiller’s death in 2013.
Scott Roeder, the man who murdered Tiller, had said he was obeying “God’s law” and saving babies, when he shot the doctor at his church.
“Here we go again. I hope I’m wrong,” neighbor Ruth Collingwood told KWCH. “I hope they don’t start in again because that’s not necessary.”

Roger Stone’s dream of booting judge for sentencing comments brutally crushed by ex-US Attorney: ‘He’s met his match’
Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance crushed any hopes former Donald Trump associate Roger Stone might have that his prison sentence will be voided due to comments made by the presiding judge in his federal trial.
Speaking with host Alex Witt, Vance left no doubt Stone's latest legal gambit will collapse just like his previous attempts to squirm out of his trial did.
"Stone's legal team says that Judge Amy Berman Jackson's assertion that the jurors served with integrity shows bias," host Witt stated. "Do you buy that argument and legally would that be enough to get the judge dismissed from the case?"
Internet heaps praise on CNN’s Anderson Cooper for his ‘must watch’ destruction of Rod Blagojevich
CNN's Anderson Cooper received near-universal praise across the board for what one commenter called his "fiery rebuke" of recently paroled former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich on Friday night that culminated in the CNN host telling him excuses for why he should not have been in prison were "bullsh*t."
During the highly-contentious interview, Cooper came armed with facts and did not let Blagojevich get away with comparing himself to political prisoner Nelson Madel a which drew a smirk and rebuke from the CNN host.
Many on Twitter were quick to point to the interview as one all cable hosts should look at as a way to stop guests who go on shows to lie with no pushback.
Bill Barr’s relationship with Trump ‘on the rocks’ as unleashed president ‘openly defies him’: ex-prosecutor
In a CNN segment analyzing Donald Trump's insistent comments and tweets about Justice Department business, former federal prosecutor Eli Honig stated that the relationship between the president and Attorney General Bill Barr is now "on the rocks" and does not look promising for the future.
Speaking with "New Day" host Christi Paul, Honig explained that Barr has repeatedly cautioned the president about his comments but that Trump is flat out ignoring the Attorney general -- meaning that their relationship has taken a bad turn.
"It's interesting, Christi, the relationship between Trump and Barr seems to be on the rocks," Honig explained. "We saw Bill Barr step up and show some spine when he said to ABC News, the president is making my job impossible."
