Nebraska’s ban on abortions after 20 weeks gestation has only been in effect for 3 weeks and the expected result has occurred. Omaha’s notorious late-term abortionist, LeRoy Carhart –unable to muster any Constitutional challenge –will be plying his trade in other states.
In a TV interview today, Carhart claims he will be opening ‘Centers for Sexual and Reproductive Services’ in December. As pro-lifers anticipated, one location will be in Council Bluffs, Iowa, 8 minutes away from his current Omaha facility. Two more locations are planned for Indiana and Maryland.
No Kansas facility for Carhart was discussed today, although he still holds a Kansas medical license.
16 months ago, following George Tiller’s murder, Carhart boasted he would ‘continue the Tiller legacy’ in Kansas, but Tiller’s widow announced the Wichita late-term abortion business would be permanently closed, and it remains so to this day.
Nebraska’s historic new law is called the Pain-capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and bans abortions to protect unborn children from experiencing torture. Many states are anxious to enact this legislation.
The recent elections in Kansas secured a Governor, Attorney General and legislature that will not suffer any return of late-term abortion businesses.
Another improvement in Kansas is that — after decades of abortion corruption under executive director Larry Buening –the state medical board is actively seeking to remove the license of Tiller-facilitator, Kris Neuhaus for illegal referrals. In court, Neuhaus has admitted she provided late-term abortion referrals to Carhart, when he worked at the Tiller business.
