I'll just pick apart objectionable stuff as I find it.
A Nebraska doctor who is one of the few in the country to perform abortions late in a pregnancy....
Let's check Abortion Clinics Online, shall we?
Alabama - 1 (thru 24 weeks LMP)

Texas - 1 (thru 24 weeks)
That's 35, just counting the ones that choose to advertise through Abortion Clinics Online. That's a pretty big handful.
LeRoy Carhart said he decided to open the clinics because Nebraska had implemented a new law that made it illegal to perform abortions beyond the 20th week of a pregnancy.
Note how conveniently they omit the fact that the 20 week cut-off is based on evidence of the abortion causing the baby pain. Picture a preemie in an incubator. Picture Carhart reaching in with forceps and pulling off arms and legs. That's what Carhart does -- rips arms and legs off living babies the same age as those babies in the NICU.
But the writer of the article just ignores that point.
"The laws are more favorable in these other jurisdictions, and we're going to do the maximum the law allows," Carhart said in a telephone interview with The Washington Post.
If he's learned anything in the 11 years he worked for Tiller, it's going beyond what the law allows. On paper, Kansas law says that no abortion may be performed after viability unless the attending physician and another financially and legally independent physician determine that an abortion is necessary to preserve the woman's life or continuation of the pregnancy would cause a "substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function" of the woman. But Tiller and his employees performed abortions past viability based on scant diagnostic criteria, and sometimes NO diagnosis whatsoever. Carhart himself appears to be the one who performed the fatal 28-week abortion on Christin Gilbert, a healthy 19-year-old with Down Syndrome.
In other words, Carhart's likely to perform abortions on any woman brought to him, as long as somebody ponies up the dough.
The location was selected based on a combination of factors, including which jurisdiction had the most favorable laws.
In other words, the state that does the least to protect the women in question from quacks who open abortion mills in old muffler shops. And I'll at least give them credit for including the picture of Carhart's current charming locale. Please note the garage bay doors on the lower level, and the old jalopy brick work. It's refreshing to see that Carhart got that junked truck towed away.
