On October 27, CNN profiled Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman and NE late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart in a lengthy article, along with “Perspectives on abortion” video vignettes.
Newman’s analysis: “Not a perfect article. But it better than what I thought CNN would do.”
There are 6 videos, and I’ve uploaded Newman and Carhart’s to YouTube

Choice words (pardon the pun) and photos (click all to enlarge) from the article…

When you cross The Line of Death onto clinic property, the protesters stare at you. They get on walkie talkies and relay information: Your car. What you look like. Any identifying detail.
“Take a look around you, sir,” one woman shouts. “The place is a dump.”
The parking lot at Dr. LeRoy Carhart’s clinic in Bellevue, NE is crumbled. A giant sign reads “Abortion & Contraception Clinic of Nebraska.” Paint peels off the sides of the building, once a motorcycle shop, a car dealership showroom and an electronics store….

Carhart was performing an abortion in Procedure Room No. 1 when his cell phone buzzed with the news [that George Tiller had been murdered]. He didn’t have time to grieve for his best friend. He still had 12 abortions to do.
“I finished them all,” he says proudly….
Carhart says in his soft-spoken voice… “I have abortion on the front of this building, because I think abortion isn’t a four-letter word. It’s a part of life.
Newman is appalled. In no way is “killing a baby” a way of life, he says…. [T]o him, Carhart personifies… a morally repugnant human being. He refuses to call Carhart a doctor.
“Doctors heal people. Abortionists do just the opposite.”…

[Carhart] charges anywhere from $430 to $10,000 for an abortion. The price depends on how far along the pregnancy is.
Of the 60k abortions he says he’s performed, he says about 400 were beyond 24 weeks, so-called late-term abortions. In each case, he says, there was a medical reason for the procedure.
I am not pro-abortion,” he says. “That’s the very one clear thing I want you to understand. Abortion is not the right answer for every pregnancy.”
The latest abortion he’s ever performed was at 36 weeks, he says, because the fetus had not developed a brain. His youngest patient was 10, a victim of incest….

[JLS note: 36 weeks? That’s just so weird. A baby is considered full-term at 36 or 37 weeks, depending on the dr. The mother could simply have delivered. And did Carhart report the rape to authorities? Was he responsible and saved some of the baby’s tissue for DNA matching?]

Carhart doesn’t mask his language. He’s open and honest about what he does, sometimes uncomfortably so.
“We do kill fetuses,” he says. “It dies because we give an injection into the fetus that causes the heart to just slowdown.”…
Newman had no idea then that he would become one of the nation’s most outspoken activists against abortion – despised by women’s groups and supporters of abortion rights.
I always wonder: What part of wanting to save a baby’s life is so bad that it makes people hate me?
