Protesters ask for abortion regulation in Council Bluffs

Approximately 150 protesters showed up at the Council Bluffs City Council meeting on Dec. 13 to express opposition to a Nebraska doctor's planned abortion clinic and to ask the Council to "define and renounce" late-term abortions within city limits. Leroy Carhart, a late-term abortion provider in Bellevue, had to look elsewhere for clinic locations after Nebraska passed a landmark law banning abortions later than 20 weeks. The doctor says he is still looking at potential sites in Council Bluffs. The City Council blocked Carhart's first attempt at acquiring property in November. Iowa lawmakers say they are considering new abortion laws at the state level in response to Carhart's desire to move in and Nebraska's tougher restrictions.
