Operation Rescue Announces 'Keep It Closed' Campaign
Date:8/3/2009

WICHITA, Kan., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Operation Rescue announced today that it has launched the new "Keep it Closed" campaign, which is a multi-group effort to stop LeRoy Carhart from opening a late-term abortion clinic in Nebraska, Kansas, or any other state. Operation Rescue is conducting this project in conjunction with Rescue the Heartland and Nebraskans United for Life.

Operation Rescue will be in the Omaha area on August 28-29 for a pro-life rally, street activism at Carhart's Bellevue abortion clinic, and to hold an invitation-only training session for local pro-life activists.

"We are dedicated to working through every legal means to stop LeRoy Carhart from following through on his threats to open a late-term abortion clinic to replace Tiller's clinic," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

Once George Tiller's late-term abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas, permanently closed in June, Carhart, who had worked part-time for Tiller, announced his plans to open a late-term abortion clinic in either Kansas or his home state of Nebraska.

According to recent polls, such abortions are opposed by 93% of the American people.

Last month, the three pro-life groups sent a letter along with a documentation packet to Nebraska Attorney General Jon Buning asking for a comprehensive investigation in to Carhart's abortion business.

Among concerns are:

  • Carhart's poorly-maintained abortion clinic in Nebraska presents a hazard to women that would only increase with the introduction of the more dangerous third-trimester abortions.
  • Carhart was responsible the botched third-trimester abortion death of 19-year old Christin Gilbert and other late-term abortion complications that required emergency hospitalization.
  • Records on file with the Nebraska Department of Heath indicate that Carhart has falsified entries on patient charts, interrupted abortions due to fatigue or exhaustion, engaged in personal phone conversations in the middle of abortions, and failed to train his staff on infection control protocols.

This is the first of two ambitious projects that will be launched by Operation Rescue this month. The second project promises to be the most ambitious endeavor ever embarked upon by Operation Rescue.

"We have vast experience gained over years of legally and peacefully closing abortion clinics around the nation and will be putting that experience into practice in new and creative ways in the coming weeks and months," said Newman.
