Supporting Dr. Carhart

Dr. Mila Means, of the Kansas National Organization for Women (Kansas NOW), discusses the importance of demonstrating support for Dr. LeRoy Carhart as he opens up his own clinic in Germantown, Maryland yesterday (July 31st, 2011). Dr. Carhart is an abortion provider and was a good friend of Dr. George Tiller; in the face of Dr. Tiller’s murder, Dr. Carhart has stepped up unabashed and outspoken about the importance of abortion in today’s society, and supporting him as he continues to receive threats from anti-choice activists – as Dr. Means points out – is crucial for women’s rights. Momentum is building for a beautiful gathering of abortion rights supporters in Germantown, MD (near Washington, DC) July 31-August 7; click here for more information.
