Carhart at DC Rally with His Hand Out for Tax Funds for Abortions
November 2, 2009
WASHINGTON, (christiansunite.com) -- Late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart was in Washington, D.C. today standing with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in support of taxpayer funded abortion.
"If there was any doubt that the Pelosi-Reid-Obama health care scheme would force taxpayers to fund abortions, there isn't anymore," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
Carhart was photographed by a representative for Concerned Women for America during a Pelosi rally in front of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. this morning holding a sign promoting the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice in support of taxpayer funded abortion.
"If Pelosi's health care bill is passed, our tax dollars will go straight into Carhart's pockets to fund abortions, especially late-term abortions done on viable babies," said Newman.
"Carhart is a hack that has sent many women to the hospital with life-threatening abortion injuries. He even killed young Christin Gilbert by horrifically botching her third-trimester abortion. If Pelosi has her way, even more women will have their lives placed at risk by Carhart with the taxpayer footing the bill!"
Carhart is currently under investigation by the Nebraska Attorney General's office after three of his former employees came forward with sworn affidavits that told of illegal activity and unsafe conditions.
All of the women said that they did not have any medical training or licensing, yet they were instructed to perform medical duties that they were not legally qualified to do, such as starting IVs, dispensing medication, and assisting with surgeries. They claimed that drugs often came up missing, and that there was a general uncleanness about the facility, including the discovery of dried blood on instruments that had been laid out for surgery.
Some of the women claimed to believe Carhart was often chemically impaired while on duty, that he had poor personal hygiene, and that he rarely if ever washed his hands between patients.
"This is the kind of thing we can expect from the Pelosi health care bill," said Newman. "It is unthinkable that this kind of quackery should be allowed, much less funded at taxpayer expense."
Operation Rescue is sponsoring a protest against tax funded abortions on Saturday at 11:30 AM at the White House in conjunction with the IAM71.org coalition. Click here for more information.
