Anti-Choice Activists Describe Plans to Protest Dr. LeRoy Carhart's Expansion of Practice to DC Area
TBD: Local anti-abortion activists' elaborate plans to protest LeRoy Carhart, by Amanda Hess:
This week, Nebraska abortion provider LeRoy Carhart, one of the few physicians in the country who will openly perform late-term abortions, announced his plans to expand his reproductive health practice to the D.C. metro area.
Maryland anti-abortion activist Jack Ames hadn't yet learned of Carhart's plans when I called him for comment Wednesday morning. Then, for over an hour, Ames detailed exactly what he plans to do to stop Carhart. “He’s about as welcome here as the plague,” Ames told me. “If Carhart comes in here, we’re going to be all over him.”
