Anti-abortion groups, led by Operation Rescue, plan to launch protests outside Carhart's clinic this weekend in Bellevue, just south of Omaha.

The demonstrations are set to culminate Saturday with so-called Truth Trucks -- delivery trucks with giant rolling billboards of dismembered fetuses on the sides -- parking outside Carhart's clinic and canvassing area neighborhoods. Protesters carrying anti-abortion signs also are expected.

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman has vowed a peaceful demonstration and said that any hints of possible violence are ginned up by what he calls left-wing groups and the liberal media.

Newman said earlier, "I'm not interested in putting our folks in any situation where the other side might flare up. I'm very confident about our side. They're very peaceful moms and dads and families that will be showing up with signs."

Carhart . . . said he's performed more than 60,000 abortions in the past two decades. About 400 of those were after 24 weeks . . . He said he takes pride in the term abortionist.

According to Operation Rescue, members of pro-life groups met with [Nebraska Attorney General Jon] Bruning this week to present to him the signed affidavits from former Carhart employees.

OR President Troy Newman said, "For the first time, we have sworn statements from women who have admitted that they were instructed to commit illegal activity at Carhart's abortion clinic in Bellevue, Nebraska. That makes their allegations compelling and convincing.

"These women came forward on their own to blow the whistle on Carhart out of concern for the safety and well-being of women. These are not pro-life activists by any stretch of the imagination," he said.

Bruning took the documents and assured activists that the documents also would be forwarded to the state Department of Health and Human Services, which earlier launched an investigation of Carhart at the request of Operation Rescue, Nebraskans United for Life and Rescue the Heartland.
