WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - The man accused of shooting a Kansas abortion provider has confessed to the killing to The Associated Press, saying he has no regrets.

In a telephone call from jail Monday, Scott Roeder told the AP: "Because of the fact pre-born children's lives were in imminent danger, this was the action I chose."

The 51-year-old Kansas City man is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated assault in the May 31 shooting of Dr. George Tiller at the abortion provider's Wichita church.

Tiller had been the target of protests for most of the 36 years that he performed abortions at his Wichita clinic, where he practiced as one of the nation's few providers of late-term abortions.
