WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A pastor accused of stalking the woman who opened an abortion clinic in Wichita is expected to be in court.

The allegations against Mark Holick stem from a move by an abortion-rights group, Trust Women Foundation, to open a clinic offering abortions and other medical services. It opened earlier this month in the shuttered building that housed the clinic of Dr. George Tiller, who was shot to death by an abortion opponent in May 2009.

Trust Women's executive director, Julie Burkhart, has obtained a temporary protection-from-stalking order against Holick. Thursday's hearing is over whether to make the order permanent.

Holick is accused of picketing Burkhart's home and handing out "wanted-style" fliers. A court filing says he pointed a sign at her house that read, "WHERE'S YOUR CHURCH."
