Last night Rachel Maddow continued her dogged reporting on the extreme anti-choice right, covering Operation Rescue’s upcoming protests against Dr. Leroy Carhart’s Nebraska clinic. Maddow invited Dr. Carhart onto her show to discuss the threats he’s facing.
"Do you feel enough is being done to protect you and your staff?" asked Maddow.
"Local authorities doing everything they can, federal law enforcement also, but Congress needs to get involved," answered Carhart. "Anti-abortion terrorism is a hate crime.”
