Having worked hard, alongside thousands of Iowans, to keep LeRoy Carhart out of SW Iowa…I cannot tell you how happy this news makes me!!!
In late 2010, LeRoy Carhart, having just been banned from performing abortions after 20 weeks in Nebraska, was looking to export his dangerous abortion business.
He announced that he’d expand immediately in Iowa, Indiana and Maryland.
We tenaciously fought him in countless ways in Iowa and ultimately he never opened shop. He did for a while in Indiana, but soon closed down there.
And then THIS out of Maryland!! God bless everyone in Maryland who stood up to him there; who prayed for the babies and their mothers outside those clinic doors.
We mourn for the thousands of babies who died as a result of this man. We continue to grieve over the loss of women like Jennifer Morebelli, who died at the hands of LeRoy Carhart in Germantown, Maryland.
And we pray for LeRoy Carhart, whose time this side of eternity may well be limited.
