I'm disgusted and I'm saddened, and I hate it that [Dr. LeRoy Carhart]'s here in Nebraska and I hate it that he's in America. I mean, this guy is one sick individual.
Dr. LeRoy Carhart, a Nebraska Ob/Gyn who covered Dr. Tiller at his Wichita clinic before it closed following Dr. Tiller's assassination on May 31, plans to open a reproductive health clinic in Kansas that will provide therapeutic late-term abortions.
The obligation to provide patients with proper medical care and to care for them comes with the territory and is nothing remarkable. Thousands of Ob/Gyns do it day in and day out all over the country.
Dr. Carhart's commitment to provide care to patients and to stand by them in the face of domestic terrorism and a high likelihood that he'll be assassinated is extraordinary and humbling.
