Former Employee Claims Abortionist Leroy Carhart Told Her to Commit Illegal Acts, Was "Chemically Impaired on Duty"

Another former employee of late-term abortion practitioner LeRoy Carhart has come forward saying he engaged in illegal activities at his Nebraska-based abortion business. She joins five other former workers at Carhart's abortion center who says illegal and unethical practices occurred there.

The unnamed woman has contacted the pro-life group Operation Rescue and submitted an affidavit testifying to the illegal acts she witnessed.
She also testifies that Carhart and his staff told her to commit illegal acts during her employment at his Abortion and Contraception Clinic of Nebraska.

OR president Troy Newman tells today that she is the fourth person to submit an affidavit to his group and that he will turn it over to Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning, who recently met with representatives of several pro-life groups about the concerns regarding Carhart.

"We want to emphasize that each of the affidavits, including this most recent one, contain testimony of criminal violations," he said.
"Therefore, we repeat our request that the Attorney General's office conduct a careful criminal investigation within the confines of the law, and make the appropriate criminal charges as warranted by its investigation," Newman added. "This would be in addition to anything that is being done by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services," he told today.

Newman said this latest Carhart employee left her job voluntarily and indicated she had no medical background but routinely assisted with surgeries, started IVs, and dispensed medication without the proper credentials.
She also indicated that she believed that Carhart was, at times, chemically impaired while on duty.

The other former employees at Carhart's abortion business also said abortions that were done without proper licensing and that they started IVs for him even though they are not registered nurses or certified licensed practical nurses, as required by state law.

"The picture these women paint of day-to-day activity at Carhart's abortion clinic is not a pretty one," Newman said.
"Each day that goes by is another day when women's lives and health are placed at grave risk. Immediate action is needed to insure that the public is protected from illegal and unsafe practices that these women say are taking place at Carhart's abortion clinic," Newman continued...
