Thank you, Dr. LeRoy Carhart!

11 06 2009

Two days ago, I wrote a post about how the late Dr. Tiller’s clinic was going to be closed permanently.  One of the reasons this is a heavy loss is because Dr. Tiller’s clinic was one of the only places where women could get late abortions.

But good news!  Dr. LeRoy Carhart, a Nebraska doctor has stepped up and said that he would perform third-term abortions in Kansas.  It is unclear whether he will be performing these abortions at a new facility or if he’d perform them at existing clinics.  In a telephone interview with The Associated Press, Dr. Carhart said, “there will be a place in Kansas for the later second- and the medically indicated third-trimester patients very soon.”

Since 1985, Dr. Carhart has run his own clinic in Bellvue, Nebraska.  He’s performed late term abortions at Dr. Tiller’s clinic previously due to Nebraska’s restrictive abortion laws.  Subsequent to the initial closing of Dr. Tiller’s clinic after his murder, Dr. Carhart has experienced an increase in patients in his Bellvue clinic.  The two were old friends and colleagues.

Thank you, Dr. Carhart for stepping up and in to uphold a crucial service for women.  Thank you, Dr. Carhart for your courage and determination to continue providing a critical medical procedure for women in spite of the anti-choice  harassment and violence that has occurred and will continue to occur.  Thank you, Dr. Carhart for your dedication to defending women’s reproductive health and rights.

402-291-4797 That’s the number for the clinic. I just called and told the woman thank you for them still doing their jobs despite crazy protesters. She sounded very surprised to get a positive phone call.
