Dear Dr. Carhart and Staff of Clinic,
I read an article about your clinic’s new sign in the Sunday world herald and felt prompted to write you. I work in Bellevue and often drive past your clinic on mission ave. the sign is a wonderful improvement. Until now the indication of your facilities location was the protesters and their morbid place cords. I feel that it is wonderful to have a sign to make people aware that your services are available to them. I have never been in need of your services, but it is a great comfort to know that I have options. I would like to thank every person who makes your facility possible.
Dr. Leroy Carhart,
Thank you so much for trusting and helping women. I send my love and support. Stay safe.
P.S. I’ve given to the feminist majority foundation in their work to keep you safe.
Dr. Carhart –
you have my deepest respect and gratitude. Without your courage and compassion, I would not have made it through a most difficult time in my life. You literally saved my life. My fiancé thanks you and if my children were old enough to explain this to, they would thank you as well. Together we have five children and through it hasn’t been easy, without you it wouldn’t “be” at all. I thank the lord every day for helping me find you and for the risked you take every day on behalf of women everywhere. I cannot begin to tell you have grateful we are. I will continue to pray for your never ending courage and also for your safety in practice and also, in law. – meaning I hope that when my girls are grown there are still choices and doctors with courage to defend them.
All of the staff were compassionate, helpful and considerate. The care here was outstanding and eased all of my fears. Thank you to all!
I wanted to write and thank you for all of your help during the past few months. The past few months were a roller coaster and I ended up making the most difficult decision of my life. Still, I am grateful we had the choice. We literally could not have done it without you and your willingness to be one of the doctors in the country to perform this procedure at such a late date. I know it was such a complicated situation for you and I am so thankful that you were willing to learn all you could about the options and were closely with us to do the termination. I hope it would be of help to other woman who find themselves in similar circumstances in the future. It is hard to believe that you were willing to put up with such pressure and persecution from so many different sides, all to make sure that woman in this country still have a choice, but you do. And we literally owe you our lives for that, thank you.
Words cannot express how truly thankful I am. You made an impact on me and my family and we will remember that forever.
Dr. Carhart & Staff,
Thank you for the work that you do, and for tirelessly standing by women’s right to choose.
