Allegations Made Against Bellevue Abortion Clinic

An anti-abortion group says Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning is investigating allegations of criminal conduct at Dr. Leroy Carhart's abortion clinic.

Bruning spokeswoman Leah Bucco-White said Thursday that all allegations are taken seriously, but wouldn't comment on whether Carhart was under investigation. But Troy Newman of Operation Rescue says Bruning has confirmed to him that both his office and the state Department of Health and Human Services are investigating.

On Thursday, Bruning was given affidavits from three of Carhart's former employees who Newman says allege unsafe conditions and practices at the Bellevue clinic. Carhart could not immediately be reached for comment, but previously suggested the allegations are untrue.
