An unknown number of doctors across the country perform late abortions, but unlike most, Drs. LeRoy Carhart and Warren Hern do so publicly. The film Trust Women explores their commitment to women.
Here’s a quick roundup with some additional news for stories we reported on earlier this week.
Dr. Carhart announces an expansion into new states, and the anti-choice call it “victory,” since at least he’s shutting down in Nebraska.
The Hyde amendment puts women in the most dire of situations. They have to choose between paying their rent or being pregnant, feeding their children or being pregnant, pawning their car or being pregnant.
Why Trust Women PAC is bringing in affected parents to oppose the Nebraska abortion ban aimed at Dr. Carhart.
Last night Rachel Maddow continued her dogged reporting on the extreme anti-choice right, covering Operation Rescue’s upcoming protests against Dr. Leroy Carhart’s Nebraska clinic.
