“Butcher of Bellevue” Strikes: 17-Week Abortion Gone Wrong At Carhart’s Nebraska Abortion Mill

UPDATE! Read the 911 CAD printout. See video with 911 recording below.

By Cheryl Sullenger

Bellevue, NE – The notorious late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart, 75, who has killed one abortion patient and hospitalized at least 15 others in the past five years, has seriously injured yet another abortion patient, who required emergency medical intervention and hospitalization.

Emergency units were dispatched to Carhart’s dilapidated Abortion and Contraception Clinic of Nebraska, located in the Omaha suburb of Bellevue, in response to a 911 call place at approximately 3:08 p.m. on Friday, March 24, 2017. The fire unit was first on the scene, followed minutes later by an ambulance.

According to emergency dispatch radio traffic obtained by Operation Rescue, the patient was a 35-year old female who had just completed at abortion of her baby at 17-weeks gestation.

“Carhart has not aged well, and he is injuring more women as time goes by. We have followed Carhart’s exploits for many years and know that while he has always been too good at killing babies, he has never been very good at avoiding catastrophic medical injuries and patient deaths,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “There is no way he should be allowed to continue his baby-killing business that has maimed and killed so many women.”

The woman suffered from difficulty breathing and excessive bleeding that Carhart and a second physician were incapable of controlling at the run-down facility where Carhart has operated for decades.

This once again raises questions about the safety of women seeking abortions at stand-alone facilities that are not equipped to cope with the many life-threatening complications that can arise, especially during the riskier second and third trimester abortions for which Carhart is well known.

Paramedics spent 17 minutes inside the facility before transporting the injured woman using Code 2 to Bellevue Medical Center. Code 2 represents an acute but non-time critical transport that does not require lights and sirens.

Carhart was seen on the video exiting his abortion facility and climbing into the ambulance so he could accompany his patient to the hospital – something Carhart rarely does. However, the aging abortionist holds no hospital privileges and would not be allowed to continue treating her (perhaps thankfully) once she reached the hospital.

“Only a political climate that is bent on protecting abortionists at any costs has kept a shoddy abortionist like Carhart in business. Corrupt abortion attorneys shield him from the consequences of his actions, which are much more akin to those of Josef Mengle than Albert Schweitzer,” said Newman.

Carhart is currently being sued by former abortion patient Wendy Devine, who is alleging that LeRoy Carhart so severely botched her late-term at Germantown Reproductive Health Services in Germantown, Maryland, that she nearly died and will likely never bear another child.

Carhart was also under investigation by the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives for suspected participation in the illegal sale of aborted baby remains, and for possible violations of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. Unfortunately, the Panel ended before the investigation could be concluded.

Below are other medical emergencies involving LeRoy Carhart that have occurred over the past five years.

Bellevue Taxpayers Forced To Subsidize Carhart’s Abortion Business

While Carhart is under criminal investigation, taxpayers foot the bill for “spy-cams”

Bellevue, NE – The police department in Bellevue, Nebraska have announced that the city now pays nearly $1,000 to maintain security cameras at LeRoy Carhart’s abortion clinic – money that is taken directly from the taxpayer coffers to spy on peaceful pro-life supporters.

“It is outrageous, at a time when Congress is in an uproar fighting abortion lobby efforts to use tax money to bail out failing abortion clinics, that the City of Bellevue would arbitrarily decide to force taxpayers to subsidize Carhart’s abortion business,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “If Carhart wants extra security, he should have to pay for it himself, just like everybody else.”

Bellevue police Chief John W. Stacey attempted to justify the $970 per month tax-funded camera system by saying it was “handy.”

“This is yet another example of the gross lack of judgment shown by the City of Bellevue, which continues to cater to Carhart’s whims,” said Newman.

In August, Bellevue police overreacted to a visit by Operation Rescue by putting up snow fences, blocking off streets, marching out the SWAT teams, and making wild and unsubstantiated claims in the media about anticipated violence.

“We tried to tell them that we only expected 20-50 peaceful supporters praying quietly on the sidewalk, but they were bent on making a tempest in a teapot. They blew everything out of proportion and in doing so, unnecessarily wasted thousands of dollars of taxpayer money. Now they are doing it again,” said Newman.

Carhart is currently under investigation by the Nebraska Attorney General’s office for illegal conduct alleged when former Carhart employees came forward and said that workers with no medical background routinely assisted with surgeries, started IVs, and dispensed medication without the proper credentials. The women told of unclean conditions at the clinic and that Carhart rarely if ever washed his hands between patients. They also indicated that drugs were often missing and believed that Carhart was, at times, chemically impaired while on duty.

“It might be a better use to tax dollars to have the spy-cams inside the abortion mill. They are more likely to catch someone breaking the law inside the clinic than outside it,” said Newman.

“We encourage those who are outraged that taxpayers are subsidizing spy-cams at Carhart’s abortion business to contact the Bellevue police and let their concerns be known.”

Nine Ambulances Rush to Abortion Facilities in Six States

By Cheryl Sullenger

New York City, NY — There have been a disturbing number of medical emergencies at abortion facilities reported by pro-life activists since late September, including nine ambulance incidents in six states.

“These incidents illustrate that the Abortion Cartel’s claims of abortion safety fail the reality test. For the women who have suffered serious injuries and death from botched abortions, all that rhetoric means nothing,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “The emergencies that we hear about are only a fraction of what is happening, and do not count abortion emergencies where women have been hospitalized after the left the abortion facility for the day. These serious incidents are ignored by the news media, which does women a disservice by concealing the truth about abortion dangers from them.”

CALIFORNIA

Bakersfield: For the sixth time this year, an ambulance was called to the FPA Women’s Health abortion facility on October 3, 2017, as earlier reported by Operation Rescue. A 23-year old woman suffered a perforated uterus and underwent an emergency hysterectomy to save her live once at the hospital.

Walnut Creek: An ambulance was called to the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Walnut Creek, CA, on October 6, 2017, a known surgical abortion day. Witnesses described the woman as looking “upset” as she was bought out of the Planned Parenthood abortion building and loaded into an ambulance.

NEBRASKA

Omaha: Nebraskans United for Life report that an ambulance rushed to the Planned Parenthood abortion facility on October 2, 2017. A gurney was taken in to the facility, but the patient refused transport to the hospital. However, it must have appeared her condition was dire at one point, or an ambulance would never have been called.

Bellevue: With lights from the ambulance flashing in the background, one pro-life activist recorded a brief clip of an incident at LeRoy Carhart’s Bellevue abortion business at approximately 7:00 p.m. on October 6, 2017. 911 records indicated a fire alarm had been tripped, but an eye witness says he saw a gurney removed from the facility with someone on it. This remains a bit of a mystery. This is the 16th ambulance spotted at a Carhart abortion business since 2012.

NEW YORK

New York City: On September 29, 2017, at about 4:40 p.m., one pro-life activist stopped by the Margaret Sanger Center Planned Parenthood to pray when an ambulance was spotted. The woman was brought out of the facility in a wheelchair because gurneys cannot access the abortion procedure floors in the New York high-rise. She was transported to a nearby hospital. This was the seventh such emergency at this particular abortion facility so far this year.

NORTH CAROLINA

Raleigh: The first day they were able to do abortions in a week due to “doctor unavailability,” A Woman’s Choice called an ambulance to transport a patient on October 13, 2017. Apparently this is something that happens there regularly enough that the staff was prepared with a large purple “sheet of shame” to block pro-life activists from photographing the incident. (It didn’t really work.)

This facility had a series of failed inspections from 2013 to 2017. The most recent deficiency report indicated a likely incomplete surgical abortion that required a second surgery to complete.

OHIO

Cleveland: An ambulance arrived at the Preterm abortion facility on September 29, 2017 at around 2:00 p.m., as previously reported by Operation Rescue. The woman was wheeled out of Preterm on a gurney. Emergency responders took an additional 10 minutes to stabilize her in the ambulance before transporting her to a hospital emergency room. In 2014, Lakisha Wilson died from a severely botched abortion she received at Preterm. The September incident was the ninth emergency documented at Preterm by Operation Rescue since 2015.

TEXAS

Houston: According to the Houston Coalition for Life, an ambulance and fire engine were photographed at the large Planned Parenthood abortion facility on Gulf Freeway on October 3, 2017. Once woman was transported.

Houston: The next day, on October 4, 2017, another ambulance visited the same Planned Parenthood abortion facility and transported one woman with lights and sirens flashing, the Houston Coalition for Life reports.

NATIONALLY

So far in 2017, Operation Rescue has documented 51 incidents where ambulances were called to abortion facilities around the nation. Of those 51 incidents, two-thirds (34) involved Planned Parenthood abortion facilities.

Carhart to Open New Late-Term Abortion Facility in Maryland Next Week

By Cheryl Sullenger

Bethesda, MD – Operation Rescue has learned that Nebraska’s late-term abortionist, LeRoy Carhart, has secured a new office in Bethesda, Maryland, and plans to continue conducting abortions on babies throughout all nine months of pregnancy.

Operation Rescue’s researchers conducted an undercover investigation to locate the secret new abortion facility, which is going by the name AbortionClinics.org, Inc. It is located in a multi-tenant medical building at 10401 Old Georgetown Road Suite 104, Bethesda, MD 20814.

The new abortion business plans to begin abortions the week of October 16, 2017.

“There will be pro-life advocates outside this facility when it opens next week. This neighborhood is about to be in for a real surprise when they realize one of the most notorious late-term abortionists in the nation will be conducting highly unpopular late-second and third trimester abortions in their neighborhood,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

Carhart was forced to relocate after the Maryland Coalition for Life bought and closed Germantown Reproductive Health Services in Germantown, Maryland, where he previously worked as an independent contractor.

During the nearly seven years Carhart conducted late-term abortions in Germantown, at least ten women were rushed to hospital emergency rooms by ambulance suffering from life-threatening complications to the risky abortion procedures. At one woman, Jennifer Morbelli, died from complications to a 33-week abortion.

Carhart has no admitting privileges at any hospital, and hasn’t since 1982.

“We want to warn the public of the dangers women face during abortions done by Carhart, and encourage pro-life activists to maintain a vigil outside this new late-term abortion facility,” said Newman.

The opening of this new late-term abortion facility provides new urgency for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act that now languishes in the U.S. Senate. This legislation, if passed, would protect pre-born babies at twenty weeks gestation and later, which are specifically targeted for abortion by Carhart’s Maryland abortion business. If passed, it’s doubtful if Carhart will be able to stay in business in Maryland, since the later abortions are expensive and highly profitable.

Please contact your Senators and urge them to support the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Video: Bizarre Pick Up of Aborted Babies at Carhart’s Nebraska Abortion Mill

Has the trafficking in aborted baby body parts quietly resumed?

By Cheryl Sullenger

Bellevue, NE – Ashley Riddle, president of Metro Sidewalk Advocates, reported for her sidewalk shift as usual at LeRoy Carhart’s abortion facility in Bellevue, Nebraska, but as she stood offering help to abortion-bound women, she found herself in a conversation with one man that proved to be anything but usual.

Riddle’s smart phone camera was running as a man emerged from Carhart’s abortion facility with a blue cooler bag that sported a bright orange biohazard sticker.

Realizing that the cooler’s contents were very likely the remains of aborted babies, Riddle asked, “Sir, don’t these babies deserve a proper funeral?”

Instead of answering, the man challenged Riddle.

“Did you also know that this is also just a health clinic as well. It’s not just for abortions,” he said.

Riddle explained that Carhart provides few, if any, services other than abortion.

“But you’re taking out dead babies, sir,” she remarked.

“It’s a fetus,” he replied.

Then, in a bizarre twist, the man cavalierly tossed the cooler into the back seat of his private vehicle, turned to Riddle and asked, “Did you know a baby isn’t formed until six to eight months?”

Riddle was shocked that the man who picked up the aborted baby remains was so grossly misinformed. In reality, pre-born babies are fully formed by eight weeks gestation, a fact easily found on the Internet with a brief Google Search.

“No, I’m not against children. I’m actually against abortion as well, but this is just my job, so I’d appreciate it if I’m not harassed,” the baby parts man continued, sounding remarkably like an abortion supporter.

“Then you wouldn’t be riding around with dead babies, sir,” Riddle responded.

The man denied that they were dead babies, after having earlier admitted they were “fetuses.” Could it be that by dehumanizing his grisly cargo with the term “fetus,” it becomes easier for him to do his job?

The incident raises questions apart from the misinformed man’s twisted logic.

Why were aborted baby remains being transported in essentially an insulated lunch bag in the back seat of an unmarked private sub-compact? Where were the baby parts going?

The arrangement was not indicative of usual biohazard waste disposal pick-up methods often witnessed by pro-life activists at abortion facilities across the country.

Then there’s this: LeRoy Carhart was recently under investigation by the House Select Panel on Infant Lives for suspected trafficking in aborted baby organs and tissue. He was also being investigated for the possibility that he had killed babies born alive at a very late-term abortion facility in Germantown, Maryland.

The Select Panel issued subpoenas to Carhart and others related to his abortion businesses, but Carhart never fully complied before the Panel ended its work at the end of December, 2016.

Because Carhart was somehow suspected of crimes related to aborted babies and their remains, it is not far-fetched to wonder if he might be engaged in the illicit trade in body parts in Nebraska.

“We call on the Nebraska Department of Health to fully investigate LeRoy Carhart and his abortion business’ disposal practices related to aborted baby remains. We also urge them to accept no stonewalling of the kind that prevented the Select Panel from reaching conclusions about his dubious actions,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “It appears there is a possibility that the illicit trade in aborted baby remains has quietly resumed, if it ever stopped. It’s time for the public to learn the truth about what’s really going on.”
