‘When the Patient Knows It’s the Right Answer for Her, Then I Want to Be Here for Her’

Dr. Leroy Carhart, an abortion provider based in Wichita, Kansas, speaks about his views on abortion for a 2009 CNN profile: “I’m not ‘pro-abortion,’ that’s the very one clear thing I want you to understand. Abortion is not the right answer for every pregnancy. And it’s not the right answer for every flawed pregnancy, and it’s not the right answer for every rape and incest patient. But when the patient knows it’s the right answer for her, then I want to be here for her.”
