Ambulance Rushes Seventh Carhart Abortion Patient in Two Years to Hospital

By Cheryl Sullenger

Bellevue, NE – An ambulance arrived at LeRoy Carhart’s Abortion and Contraception Clinic of Nebraska in Bellevue on Saturday, April 26, 2014, and transported yet another a patient to a nearby hospital. This is the seventh known abortion-related medical emergency involving Carhart in the last two years.

This even comes ironically on the same day that Operation Rescue received a letter from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services notifying it that there would be no investigation into other botched abortion incidents involving Carhart.

“In light of this most recent emergency, we call on the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services to immediately close Carhart’s Bellevue abortion business until a full investigation can take place,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We are well aware of Carhart’s political connections that have insulated him from responsibility in two previous abortion-related deaths and a string of abortion injuries. It is time for the DHHS to stop putting politics above the lives and health of women and take immediate action to address the health crisis that has been created by Carhart’s shoddy abortion practices.”

According to pro-life activists who were at the clinic at the time of Saturday’s incident, the injured patient was a woman who had come to Carhart’s poorly-maintained abortion clinic the previous day on Friday with her teen-aged daughter.

On Friday, the two women stayed at Carhart’s abortion office for about three hours, then left with the older woman driving.

The following morning, the two women were seen returning to Carhart’s facility. At about 11:50 a.m. on Saturday, the ambulance arrived for the older woman. According to witnesses, the daughter ran out of the clinic and told pro-life activists, “That’s my mom,” referring to the woman who was being transported.

“The events reported by witnesses are indicative of a botched early second trimester abortion procedure,” said Newman.

Carhart has carried no hospital privileges whatsoever since 1982. A lack of hospital privileges has been shown to interrupt the continuity of patient care and create delays in emergency treatment of women suffering life-threatening abortion complications.

Dates of other incidents involving Carhart documented by Operation Rescue include:

March 4, 2014, Germantown, MD: Patient hemorrhaged after 2nd trimester abortion complications.
November 30, 2013, Bellevue, NE: Patient suffered 2nd trimester abortion complications.
November 26, 2013, Germantown, MD: Patient required emergency surgery. (Video with 911 recording)
July 9, 2013, Germantown, MD: Patient hemorrhaged. (Video with 911 recording)
February 7, 2013, Germantown, MD: Patient Jennifer Morbelli died of 3rd trimester abortion complications. (Autopsy Report)
March 31, 2012, Bellevue, NE: Patient heard moaning and screaming during 911 call (Video with 911 recording.)

In addition, Carhart was involved in the 2005 abortion death of 19-year old Christin Gilbert, who died of complications to a third trimester abortion at a now-closed late-term abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas.

  • Melodie VanderWal

    A little confused on this one. It sounds like the mother was the victim. Who was having the abortion?

  • Betty

    I just cant understand how some of these women and these men can kill a little baby. they do not call it a baby I know but they lie it is a baby. GOD WILL JUDGE ALL THAT KILL HIS CHILDREN. MARK MY WORDS. WHEN YOU DO HAVE THEM THE ARE A BLESSING FROM GOD. AND ONE OF THE GREATEST GIFTS FROM GOD. THESE BABY’S DIDN’T ASK YOU TO DO WHAT YOU ARE DOING BUT YET YOU WILL KILL HIM/HER FOR THE VERY THING YOU DID. SHAME ON YOU.YOU ARE A DISGRACE.

    Betty, you too shall be judged. Don’t believe the Lord you pray to would like so much your casting of disgust and calling someone a disgrace. My Lord preaches sympathy and compassion, something you’ve clearly not learned in all the yrs perched in your perfect Church pew. Shame on you Betty, listen carefully next time you call someone a disgrace and declare your disgust of someone. You too shall be judged. Go shine your light in some other way. Don’t think sitting on your soap box and preaching disgust is what your God wants you to be doing with your time, do you? Who do you think you are Betty? If anyone should be ashamed here Betty, it’s you. Preaching hate with the words “Mark my words” in the name God….You Betty, need to open up your heart and especially your ears your next visit to Church. It’s not worshipping just going there and sitting and telling everyone you went to Church on Sunday. Give me a break. When I hear someone as clearly ignorant as you give advice it makes me sick to my stomach. Really think of exactly how God would want you to comment on this…..You think he’d read your reply and say “nicely done, I’ll get ‘em Betty”? You’re an idiot, you’re the worst kind of idiot, the kind that thinks they’re educated and are clearly not to the rest of us.

    That clearly refutes the myth of safe abortion for women. Consider what happened to Christin, a woman with an extra chromosome. The same proved true for Mrs. Morbelli and her daughter.

    Ive had two abortions in the past. I have been compassionaly forgiven by an all knowing and loving God. When I start to feel unforgivable and sad for what Ive done, He reminds me what happened the day of His execution. The Pharisees said they would take the blame for His crucifixion and put it on their children and children’s children. In other words, we all have the blood of Christ on our hands. We are ALL at fault for His death. Our righteousness is like filthy rags. Its not what you do, but your belief in what He has accomplished.
