Ask Others to Support Dr. LeRoy Carhart


On Monday December 21, we’re sending a petition to the Attorney General of Nebraska against investigations the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue is demanding on Dr. Leroy Carhart’s practice.

SIGN the petition supporting Dr. Carhart

Please sign it.

Dr. Carhart, who worked with Dr. George Tiller for years before he was killed in May, is determined to carry on Dr. Tiller’s work of providing later term abortions for women around the U.S.  He announced earlier this month that indeed, he is performing abortions at 22 to 28 weeks in his Omaha clinic, and later if there is medical necessity.  This is at tremendous risk for himself and his family, and of tremendous benefit for the women who, without Dr, Tiller, were not getting the care they needed.

The goal is 1000 signers by Friday December 18. If you haven’t signed yet, you can now.  Please ask your friends and colleagues to sign and circulate it.  Put it on your FaceBook, your blog, and please send the link around quickly!

We don’t expect the Attorney General, who is anti-abortion, to back off from one petition.  But everyone involved should know this is a two-sided battle.

COMING SOON:

Friday, January 22nd counter-protest to the March for Life in front of the Supreme Court.

January 2010: The 30 minute film, “Abortion, Morality and the Emancipation of Women” with Dr. Susan Wicklund, author or This Common Secret: My Journey as an Abortion Doctor, and Sunsara Taylor, writer for Revolution newspaper will be available for campus showings.
