Council Bluffs, IA To Carhart: We Don't Want You Crossing the Missouri & Coming Here

The headline is from the Omaha World Herald, hence the wording. But the news behind it is still great news. It will be interesting to see what Carhart does next, if anything since it will cost him money to fight it in court, money he doesn't have.
Now if they could only get rid of the Planned Parenthood where they do the "telemed abortions".

Abortion foes fill Bluffs meeting

COUNCIL BLUFFS — If LeRoy Carhart wants to build an abortion clinic in Council Bluffs, it won't come without a fight.
That was made clear Monday evening by those who jammed City Hall as well as by the City Council's action on a vacant piece of ground.
Carhart, the Bellevue doctor who once performed late-term abortions in Nebraska, recently said he plans to open an abortion clinic in Council Bluffs.
If so, it won't be on Avenue G and North 15th Street. At its meeting Monday, the council unanimously agreed to dispose of 24,393 square feet of vacant city ground near that intersection, but with the stipulation that an abortion clinic could not be built there.
“I think the council is unified on this,” Councilman Matt Schultz said. “We'll try to do what we can to prevent this type of activity.”
That drew loud applause from abortion opponents who filled the council room and spilled outside it. There were so many people who came — an estimated 300 — that a police officer stood watch at the door to ensure no overcrowding.
The turnout apparently was prompted by a rumor that the land might be among the parcels that Carhart is considering. There was no indication at the meeting, however, that it was in fact a site he wanted to use.
Jean Plourde — who, along with his wife, Kathy, founded Gabriel's Corner, a pregnancy counseling center — told the council the city currently has an abortion clinic on Second Avenue.
“We've already betrayed the fundamental goodness of life,” he said.
“Life is just so precious,” said Council Bluffs resident Connie Pritchett.
“We do take this seriously,” Schultz told the audience. “Over the five years I've been here, we've worked hard to make this a positive place to work and live.”
Mayor Tom Hanafan said that no one has come forward to seek city approval for an abortion clinic.
Now that the council has agreed to dispose of the land, its value will be assessed and it will be put up for sale.
The land is zoned for commercial use.
