Abortion Foes To Protest Carhart’s Md. Clinic

GERMANTOWN, Md. (AP) — Abortion-rights foes are planning a prolonged protest targeting LeRoy Carhart’s clinic in Germantown.

The rally begins Saturday and continues through Aug. 7. The schedule includes prayer sessions outside Carhart’s clinic and a speaker series.

Carhart runs a clinic in Belleuve, Neb., and is one of the nation’s few late-term abortion providers. He opened a clinic last year in Germantown after Nebraska passed a law banning abortions after 20 weeks gestation.

    Wow. Can’t these fanatics channel their energies elsewhere?! I mean aren’t there children in foster care that could benefit from their care and attention?
    Aren’t there two wars going on with people being slaughtered on ALL sides? Why aren’t they protesting that. Honestly, someone needs to turn the tables on these protesters and take it to them by any means necessary showing they that they will be dealt with if they continue to harass and target clinics that help women who CHOOSE to avail themselves of these facilities.

    DOES ANYBODY REMEMBER “THOU SHALT NOT KILL”? I LEARNED THAT A LONG TIME AGO IN SCHOOL AND IT SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN LOST IN HISTORY. REMEMBER THE 10 COMMANDMENTS ANYBODY?????

    @Hey Paul,
    If your so pro-life then why don’t you go down to the orphanage and unwanted baby. But here are some other situations to think about; what if the child is going to have something wrong with them the rest of their life? Or what if woman is attacked hmm? Its not her fault and she shouldn’t have to carry something that isn’t hers.
    But you know what i find interesting is that these anti-abortion groups think that people who are of a particular faith are going to support them. But of course that isn’t true. In the end; lets keep abortion safe, legal, and rare.

    From a Conservative all I have to say is target you protest interest on something else. The Abortion issue is a no starter and just serves the purpose of dividing most conservatives. As badly written Roe vs Wade it’s done. Maybe if Justice Blackburn had written a better opinion it would not be such a hot spot. Todays current court would not even hear such a case as the court before the decision would not have heard such a case. It was moot point Jane Roe had already had her baby and she had no legal standing to represent others. There was no actual case so the courts would normally not be involved. At the time the court used a statement made by Justice Mckenna 50 years earlier to cover there ass with making an opinion.
    Badly written Law made for almost 40 years of arguing. Just let it be.
