Dr. LeRoy Carhart, a physician that has been working with Dr. George Tiller for ten years has stated he will operate Dr. Tiller’s clinic beginning next week. From McClatchy:
Carhart said he drove to Wichita last night. He met with clinic staff members and Tiller’s wife and daughters Monday morning.
“It was a really, really good meeting,” Carhart said. “It was a chance to go over all the important things and the good things George had done for each of us, and ways that we could appreciate all that he’s done for the community and the women of this country.
“His daughters and his wife are doing far better than I would be doing if I just lost my life partner or my mother or father,” he said.
Patients who had appointments this week have been notified of the clinic’s closing, and other arrangements have been made, Carhart said.
“Starting next Monday we should be back to 100 percent,” he said.
Carhart said he and two other out-of-state doctors have been rotating weekly shifts at the clinic, and that will continue.
So the anti-choice terrorists will not win this time around. Thank Buddha…and bless Dr. Carhart.
Below is Professor Turley on Rachel Maddow tonight discussing the Domestic Terrorists.
I get FireDogLake’s email of their daily roundup of posts each night. Its a group blog and they post plenty. This one post caught my attention so much..I had to post about their post. Let me start off by saying this issue no longer affects me. But I availed myself of the right to have such a medical procedure once in my life and I thank GOD I was able to get it.
Angry Black Bitch is a wonder to behold. She has reclaimed the word “bitch” for starters…I have done that as well, its a badge of honor for moi, but I digress, this is about Her. Her post is about the governor of her state, Missouri. Its about the bill he signed IN A CHURCH. Seems he was trying to kiss some extremist ass, doing a mea culpa of sorts. He laid out a set of “new rules” for clinics that provide abortions. To put it bluntly my dear reader…
It’s turning into a police state in Missouri. That ain’t right. That people would support this bill is some scary shit indeed. Its about control over what clinics can do and how they do it. The new bill will cost clinics millions to remodel and hire staff to meet the criteria.
It will also cause some clinics to quit offering a perfectly legal medical procedure..an abortion.
I just hope to hell that there is a decent judge on the bench in Missouri to hear this case. It has to be taken into a court of law because evidently the state of Missouri is being run by Theocratic, bigoted, narrow-minded, assholes who think it’s their right to be up in everyone’s business when it comes to receiving what is STILL a legal medical procedure. From a Kansas City writeup on the new law; The new law, which will take effect Aug. 28, also bars people affiliated with abortion providers from teaching or supplying materials for sex education courses in public schools, and it allows schools to offer abstinence-only programs. It cements into state statute an existing grant program for centers that encourage women to deliver babies instead of having abortions.–WTF?? It will pay clinics a bonus to talk women out of a legal medical procedure??? I hope Planned Parenthood has the ACLU on speed dial my dear reader..because old Mitch actually brags about screwing with a womans right to Reproductive choice. Look Mitch, you friggin blowhard ass-kissing sumbitch, Roe v Wade doesn’t say EVERYONE has to get an abortion…it says women have the right to have one if circumstances in their lives dictate such a procedure.
Stop by ABB’s blog and show her some support. Not that she needs it, she is a one woman wrecking crew..and I heart her for that. Do it because she deserves to hear voices of support, not the trolling fuckwits that have been hanging around with nothing better to do that call her out for speaking her well-educated mind and showing the world what a bunch of assholes can do when they get the power to control our lives.
