Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, Kansas has announced that it will not allow LeRoy Carhart to admit patients there who may suffer from botched abortions. The decision is significant because it could prevent Carhart from opening up a new late-term abortion business in town.
Carhart current runs an abortion center outside Omaha, Nebraska and had worked with late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller before he was shot and killed by someone not affiliated with the pro-life movement.
Carhart wants to replace Tiller and open up his own abortion facility in Wichita, but he needs an agreement with a local medical clinic to do so, because women injured by botched abortions need to be able to receive immediate medical care.
Just hours after Operation Rescue launched a petition to ask local residents to contact Wesley to ask its officials to deny that relationship, WMC said it will not allow Carhart to admit patients. . .

WASHINGTON Apparently ready to abandon the idea, President Barack Obama's health secretary said Sunday a government alternative to private health insurance is "not the essential element" of the administration's health care overhaul.
The White House indicated it could jettison the contentious public option and settle on insurance cooperatives as an acceptable alternative, a move embraced by some Republicans lawmakers who have strongly opposed the administration's approach so far. . .
