Question of the Day
Doctor to offer third-term abortions
OMAHA — A Nebraska doctor said he’ll perform third-term abortions in Kansas after the slaying of abortion provider George Tiller, even though Dr. Tiller’s clinic is closed.
Dr. LeRoy Carhart declined to discuss details with the Associated Press on Wednesday, a day after Dr. Tiller’s family announced his Wichita clinic was shutting its doors.
Dr. Carhart isn’t saying whether his plans include opening a new facility or offering the abortions at an existing practice. He said such details are “something that doesn’t need to be talked about” until everything is in place.
Dr. Tiller’s clinic was one of the only facilities in the country that performed third-trimester abortions. Dr. Carhart performed late-term abortions there for 10 years.
Kansas state law allows abortions after the 21st week in certain cases.
Three bodies found at Slim Jim plant
GARNER — Search crews have recovered three bodies from a Slim Jim snack factory a day after an explosion ripped through the plant.
Police said searchers will continue scouring the building wreckage Wednesday but that only three employees were reported missing after the blast.
Crews brought out two bodies in the afternoon after retrieving the remains of Barbara McLean Spears, 43, of Dunn, before dawn.
Garner Police Sgt. Chris Clayton named the two other victims as Rachel Mae Poston Pulley, 67, and Lewis Junior Watson, 33, both of Clayton.
Officials said at least 38 employees were injured, including four with critical burns, and three firefighters were treated for inhaling ammonia fumes.
