Nebraska doctor takes up Tillerís mission to keep late-term abortions available
Kansas City Star ^ | 8/30/09 | Scott Canon

BELLEVUE, Neb. | At the end of a day of performing one abortion after the next after the next, LeRoy Carhart phrases the question himself.

“Do I think I’ll get shot? I hope not,” the physician says. “Is it a possibility? I think it’s a very, very good possibility.”

Meantime, the potbellied military retiree, grandfather and horse lover carries on the same steady abortion business that has defined, dominated and directed his life for the last two decades.

Now he stands at the most thinly manned front line in America’s abortion wars — almost daring the opposition to stop him from performing late-term abortions.

The anti-abortion group Operation Rescue mustered its troops for rallies outside Carhart’s clinic Friday and Saturday in Bellevue. When the pitch of protests fades, the group promises to recruit a local resistance to do everything it can to shutter his offices.

That, in turn, has brought abortion rights activists to join forces on Carhart’s behalf, mounting counterprotests and promising legal help to keep him at work.

This murderer should be very careful for what he wishes.

I should display his work. If he is so very proud of the “heroic” effort he is making he should let the whole world see it. I’m sure he can find some “brave” supporter willing to video him as he does his work.

Monster.

for the lawyers-when is a fetus a human? has that been decided? are there not legal protections for people who kill murderers in defense of helpless victims?

My father was a long time family doctor who delivered hundreds of babies. He could never understand how any doctor worthy of the title could engage in abortion. He often said that God would punish both those who performed abortions and those responsible for allowing them to happen. Somehow I think Teddy Kennedy needed more than a papal blessing to atone for his abortion advocacy.

"Manned?" "Thinly-manned?" Doesn't the Kansas City Star's Manual of Style and Usage have something to say about using such sexist code words, which have the effect of perpetuating a male-dominated, phallocentric society?

And, by the way, how many female late-term abortionists are there? Gee, I'd think there'd be an interesting story there just waiting for one of our MSM's oh-so-curious reporters to jump on! Follow the truth, wherever it goes, right ladies?

I guess some people will do anything for money. Maybe he’s angling for a slot in the obama regime under “dr.” zeke emmanuel?

“Carhart says he has performed somewhere between 40,000 and 75,000 since the early 1990s “

That’s as close a figure you can remember @sshole?

Exactly. How about a reality show? If it's such "honorable" work, take a chance and put it out to the world!

He is nothing more nor less than a mass murderer.
A killer for hire.

The media is trying to make a hero out of this killer.

Well, isn’t he just a profile in courage...(/s w/ the most x-treme total disdain & loathing)

He is beneath our contempt. And God’s.

“Carhart says he has performed somewhere between 40,000 and 75,000 since the early 1990s “

Xs $100 per abortion. Let’s see that’s

$4,000,000 to $75,000,000. I think the first place I’d look at would be this guys tax returns.

Secondly, for a minute let’s not argue whether what he is doing is right or wrong, but assume that he actually is performing late term abortions on women who truly have a bona fide medical reason for this, (I’m not talking about the trumped up psychological reasons which are totally BS)...This should be very very very few women. And usually, these would be something that would be determined acutely...not electively...unless we’re talking about a severely deformed fetus. I think it would be very easy and proper for the state medical society to simply look at the indications given to man by his physical exam before he performs the abortions.

My understanding is that Tiller, basically had no contraindication and performed abortions on anyone, anytime, for the flimsiest of reasons.

More likely $1,000 per abortion.

$45,000000 to $75,000,000
