WASHINGTON, DC, October 30, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Nebraska's late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart, who has largely overtaken the role of slain late-term abortionist George Tiller, appeared in Washington, D.C.to rally for the abortion-expanding health care bill unveiled Thursday.

Carhart was spotted by Concerned Women for America president Wendy Wright among the crowd that gathered for the bill's debut at the steps of the Capitol building, carrying a sign for the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice.

“Nancy Pelosi's bill has gained the support of the nation's most notorious partial-birth abortionist who is under investigation for alleged unsafe medical practices,” said Wright.  “Pelosi's bill can now be rightly called an abortionist's dream. Under her bill, government money will pay for abortions, even the kind that Carhart commits – late-term abortions against viable babies that put women's health at risk.”

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who has launched a campaign against Carhart's abortion business, noted: “If there was any doubt that the Pelosi-Reid-Obama health care scheme would force taxpayers to fund abortions, there isn't anymore.”

Carhart is currently under investigation by the Nebraska Attorney General's office after three female former employees came forward with information on possible illegal activity by him. They claimed that Carhart, whom some said was often chemically impaired during work, kept unsanitary working conditions and had the women perform medical duties without any medical training.

Nebraska's Attorney General Jon Bruning called Carhart “one sick individual.”

Operation Rescue is sponsoring a protest against tax funded abortions on Saturday at 11:30 AM at the White House in conjunction with the IAM71.org coalition. Click here for more information.
