In Support of Doctor LeRoy Carhart

Dr. LeRoy Carhart
Sign the petition to the Attorney General of Nebraska.

Last spring, after Dr. George Tiller was gunned down by one of their own, the anti-abortion movement was emboldened in its threats towards abortion providers and patients. Dr. LeRoy Carhart, the courageous, caring abortion provider and long-time associate of Dr. George Tiller, has stepped forward to take up Dr. Tiller's cause to "Trust Women" in the face of threats both violent and legal. 

Recently, he announced he is providing abortions as Dr. Tiller did, to women who need them at 22-28 weeks, or later if medically necessary.
 
Anti-abortion groups, including "Operation Rescue," which hounded Dr. Tiller for 10 years and is now moving to Omaha to target Dr. Carhart in the same way, are calling Dr. Carhart "Target #1" in an effort to intimidate him, his staff, and his patients. They are filing complaints with the Nebraska Attorney General, asking for investigations of the doctor, who has a completely clear record in terms of medical licensing. This is another form of harassment, and it should be opposed by those who care about the humanity of women.
