Pro-Life Group Starts Research on Late-Term Abortion Practitioner LeRoy Carhart

Bellevue, NE ( -- With Nebraska-based late-term abortion practitioner LeRoy Carhart saying he will take the place of George Tiller to do the lions share of the controversial abortions in Kansas, the pro-life group that was a leading Tiller watchdog is putting together a new research project focused on Carhart.

Operation Rescue told on Thursday that it is asking women who have had abortions at the hand of Carhart to contact it.

"We are conducting a research project and are encouraging women who are ready to share their stories about their abortion experiences with LeRoy Carhart to contact us as soon as possible," OR staffer Cheryl Sullenger told "Of course, all communications with us will be held in strictest confidence."

Carhart operates an abortion business known as the Abortion and Contraception Clinic of Nebraska in Bellevue, Nebraska, a suburb of Omaha. But Sullenger says he has done abortions in other states.

"He was employed until its closure at Women's Health Care Services in Wichita, Kansas. He is also licensed to operate in Indiana, New Jersey, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. He may have done abortions in Iowa in the past, as well," she said.

"If you had an abortion at by LeRoy Carhart in any of these states over the past five years we would love to speak with you," she told

The research could turn up cases of women who were injured by botched abortions Carhart has done and could help expose unscrupulous practices such as how he recently put women's health at risk.

Carhart has had troubles of his own, such as when he re-opened his Bellevue, Nebraska abortion center following an accidental fire. However, it didn't stay open long because repairs on his abortion center hadn't passed a city inspection.

He was accused of putting women's health at risk by reopening without the inspection and broke the law by operating the abortion center without an occupancy permit he needed to do so. Carhart later admitted to the Bellevue Leader newspaper that he operated without a permit for three days.

Meanwhile, local pro-life advocates, who described the exterior of the abortion building as dilapidated and says it is surrounded by rusted-out vehicles and other junk, say Carhart put women at risk a second way.

Carhart relied on a generator for power with an electrical cord running outside from the generator to the abortion facility to provide electricity. Should it have failed, women could have been in medical danger.

"Can you even imagine what would have happened if that generator had run out of gas? This just goes to show how much contempt Carhart has for the law and for women," Operation Rescue president Troy Newman said at the time. "The law is nothing more than words on a paper to him."

Carhart was a Tiller colleague and routinely participated in late-term abortions at Tiller's abortion center in Wichita.

He has never trained his staff to do late-term abortions and told AP that it may be necessary to begin doing them in Kansas. He has also indicated he may do second-trimester abortions at his Nebraska business.

Tiller was allegedly shot by Scott Roeder, a militia activist with no affiliations with any pro-life organizations. Roeder's family has also indicated that he battled with mental illness over the years.

Hundreds of pro-life groups have since issued statements condemning the shooting and saying it doesn't represent the views of the majority of Americans who are pro-life on abortion and seek legal and peaceful means to protect human life.

However, that hasn't stopped pro-abortion groups from attacking the majority of Americans who take a pro-life position on abortion and referring to them as terrorists.

What Obama and Michelle Believe re Aborted Babies Born Alive

In February 2004, US Senate candidate Barack Obama's wife, Michelle, sent a fund-raising letter with the "alarming news" that "right-wing politicians" had passed a law (prohibiting doctors from stabbing half-born babies in the neck with scissors, suctioning out their brains and crushing their skulls).

Michelle Obama called partial-birth abortion "a legitimate medical procedure. " She urged supporters to pay $150 to attend a fund-raising luncheon for her husband, who she promised would fight against "cynical ploy[s]" to stop it.

BACKGROUND Legislation was presented on the federal level and in various states called the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. It stated all live-born babies were guaranteed the same constitutional right to equal protection, whether or not they were wanted. BAIPA sailed through the U.S. Senate by unanimous vote. Even Sens. Clinton, Kennedy and Kerry agreed a mother's right to "choose" stopped at her baby's delivery. The bill also passed overwhelmingly in the House. NARAL went neutral on it. Abortion enthusiasts publicly agreed that fighting BAIPA would appear extreme. President Bush signed BAIPA into law in 2002.

But in Illinois, the state version of BAIPA repeatedly failed, thanks in large part to then-state Sen. Barack Obama. Obama worried aloud that legislation protecting live aborted babies might infringe on women's rights or abortionists' rights.

In 2003, as chairman of the next Senate committee to which BAIPA was sent, Obama stopped it from even getting a hearing, shelving it to die much like babies were still being shelved to die in Illinois hospitals and abortion clinics.

BAIPA passed in 2005.........after Obama left.

I've never seen an abortionist, but this guy Carhart looks exactly like I would imagine an abortionist to look like.

The personification of death and evil.

They are kind of late. He has been in Bellevue for about 20-25 years and has been doing abortions all that time. There have been protesters on the sidewalk for many years. The city arrested them from time to time, but recently was slapped down by a Federal Court for doing that.

He has gone to the Supreme Court (of the US) twice and beaten the State twice on abortion laws that were passed here. He has also gone to the State Supreme Court countless times and has won just about every time. Three pro-life people bought the building he was renting and gave him notice to move out. He went to court on that and won. He bought the building at their cost and the local Planned Parenthood chapter raised the money for him. He is well protected by lawyers/politicians.

The fire that was mentioned above was originally blamed on the protesters. However, a complete investigation showed that it was an electrical fire in a storeroom that was a mess. The building looks like a dump from the outside. I don’t want to know what it looks like from the inside.

There used to be a gunshop across the parking lot from his building (no more than 75-100 feet). The gunshop owner was harassed for years by the BATF and finally was forced out of business. I don’t know for sure, but I believe that Carhart, or his supporters, had something to do with that.

Unfortunately those words on paper are secondary to the Words on Stone, the Ten Commandments.

“Thou shalt not kill.”
