Late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart, under investigation in Nebraska for performing abortions while medicated and with unsterilized equipment, was caught attending a D.C. rally today for health care reform.
Carhart knows what the secular media, National Right to Life Committee and the US Bishops’ pro-life conference all understand– that all committee-passed health reform bills absolutely fund abortion.
Aug 5,2009 By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR, WASHINGTON.(AP) – Health care legislation before Congress would allow a new government-sponsored insurance plan to cover abortions, a decision that would affect millions of women and recast federal policy on the divisive issue.
The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) has issued a detailed memorandum that explains how the proposed public plan and the proposed premium subsidy programs would be funded, and why the Hyde Amendment would not apply to the proposed new programs. Another NRLC memorandum explains why all of the funds that would be spent by the public plan, and all of the funds that would be used to subsidize health plans under the premium subsidy programs, are in reality and in law “federal funds.”
The conference of U.S. Catholic Bishops issued an unprecedented emergency action bulletin Oct. 23, instructing that this USCCB Nationwide Bulletin Insert on health care reform be printed or hand-stuffed in every parish bulletin and/or distributed in pews or at church entrances as soon as possible.” The bulletin warns that
“[all current federal] committee-approved health reform bills are seriously deficient on the issues of abortion…[none] retain long-standing current policies against abortion funding or abortion coverage mandates.”
CARHART misses late-term abortion money
LeRoy Carhart had his Kansas medical license renewed by the Kansas Healing Arts Board in June, a full seven months after the Board declared Women’s Health Care Services (where Carhart practiced in Kansas) had been providing illegal post-viability abortions from 2003-2008.
Kansans for Life presented the Board last week with an additional 15,000 petitions, hand-signed by Kansans asking the Board to stand behind its position that the Wichita facility was illegally providing abortions, and revoke the involved licensees: Kris Neuhaus, LeRoy Carhart, Susan Robinson and Shelly Sella. (8,000 petitions were submitted by KFL on this issue in 2007)
Carhart told Omaha media, two days after George Tiller’s May 31, 2009 death, that “Team Tiller” (as he termed the physicians that flew in to abort at the now-closed Women’s Health Care Services) wanted to keep doing late-term abortions in Kansas.
In September, Carhart told Wichita media that he was anxious to open a facility in Kansas near an airport, indicating he wanted the out-of-state business that state records show has comprised over 95% of abortions done on viable babies in Kansas.
