Carhart pledges to take over Tiller territory

Leroy Carhart, a late term abortionist from Nebraska, whose name became a household word in pro-life circles after the Stenberg v. Carhart and Gonzales v. Carhart Supreme Court cases has pledged to take over Tiller's territory now that his colleague is out of the way. Carhart used to help Tiller occasionally and regretted that Nebraska didn't allow abortions as late into the pregnancy as were allowed in bloody Kansas. AP reports that "Nebraska law does not allow an abortion if the fetus is considered viable, or able to survive outside the womb. Kansas law allows abortions on viable fetuses after the 21st week if carrying the pregnancy to term would endanger the mother's life or cause a 'substantial and irreversible impairment' of a major bodily function. Courts have interpreted a 'major bodily function' to include mental health."

Let it never be said that an abortionist let an opportunity like this pass him by. Carhart says he may use Tiller's staff to train his folks in Nebraska and may open an office in Kansas. Double the money, double the fun.
