    FULL TITLE: Abortion Clinic Nurse Loses License After Moans, Screams Heard From Botched Abortion Victim in 911 Call Documents obtained by Operation Rescue show that Lindsey Creekmore, a registered nurse who works for late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart, has had her license suspended for 60 days and has been placed on probation for a period of two years by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Division of Public Health. The case was prosecuted by the office of Attorney General Jon Bruning, who originally sought to revoke Creekmore’s nursing license. “While this disciplinary action may not shut down Carhart’s Nebraska...

    Three months after making an open records request for a 911 call originating from LeRoy Carhart’s Germantown Reproductive Health Services abortion clinic on November 26, 2013, Operation Rescue has finally received a 911 recording from the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service indicating that the patient was hemorrhaging from complications to a late-term abortion. In addition to taking weeks beyond the statutory deadlines to comply with Operation Rescue’s open record request, the recording was heavily redacted, omitting information that has previously been obtainable by the public, indicating a policy change that actively protects the abortion clinic. “While the Maryland Public...

The woman, who came for a third trimester abortion from out-of-state, arrived at GRHC on Sunday and was seen by pro-life activists every day through Wednesday. Eyewitnesses said she appeared "pale and weak." Early Thursday morning, the woman began suffering chest pains...

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A state senator says he will introduce legislation later this week designed to block a Council Bluffs clinic that would provide late-term abortions. Iowa City Democrat Joe Bolkcom told reporters Tuesday he will introduce his measure in the Senate Ways and Means Committee, which he heads. He says his bill would prevent Nebraska Dr. LeRoy Carhart from opening a clinic in Council Bluffs, but it also would allow abortions in order to protect the health of women. Carhart announced plans for a Council Bluffs clinic after Nebraska approved a law largely outlawing late-term abortions. The...

    A Nebraska doctor who is one of the few in the country to perform abortions late in a pregnancy said Wednesday that he would open new clinics in Iowa and the Washington area. LeRoy Carhart said he decided to open the clinics because Nebraska had implemented a new law that made it illegal to perform abortions beyond the 20th week of a pregnancy. Only a handful of doctors perform abortions in late pregnancy, and Carhart has been the target of antiabortion protests. George Tiller, who was one of the few doctors who were public, was fatally shot by an antiabortion...

    Bellevue, NE (LifeNews.com) -- LeRoy Carhart, one of the few late-term abortion practitioners left in the wake of the death of George Tiller, has to be frustrated by legislation in Kansas and Nebraska that makes continuing or expanding his abortion business more difficult. Nebraska yesterday saw two new pro-life bills go into law that adversely affect his business. In Nebraska, one new law makes abortion practitioners engage in better screening and gives women a chance to file lawsuits over post-abortion mental health problems.The other bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy because unborn children can feel pain.Operation Rescue president Troy...

    Local funding, college grants, and a congressional seat: these are all things that Minnesota college students could lose, depending on the results of the upcoming 2010 census. Unfortunately, college students are also one of the groups that the United States Census Bureau has the most difficulty counting. “Sometimes when students are busy with classes they forget basic civic obligations,” said Barbara Ronningen, a demographer for the state of Minnesota. According to the 2010 Census Web site, the federal government appropriates about $400 billion to state, local, and tribal governments for schools and other projects. The money from these funds is...

I hope not,” the physician says. “Is it a possibility?

    Undoubtedly, the most significant aspect of the Supreme Court's April decision in Gonzales v. Carhart was that it narrowly upheld Congress' "partial-birth abortion" ban. That said, Justice Anthony Kennedy's opinion may affect America more for what it said about abortion than what it decreed about the law of abortion. The case appears to have opened up a new phase in abortion jurisprudence -- one in which abortion is largely permitted though disdained. This is not surprising, because Carhart represents the first recent occasion on which Kennedy set our national abortion policy. What may be surprising is how greatly both sides...

And the obvious mystery is: When in this continuous process does human life begin? And yet when you look at the abortion debate that grows from this mystery, you find that over the years, adults have built these vast layers of argument and counterargument, and the core issue is buried far down below.

On March 6, South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds signed popular legislation making most abortions illegal in the state. Following the Mount Rushmore state's lead, Mississippi, Missouri, Indiana and West Virginia all...
