Press Conference will be held Thursday at 10:00 AM
Germantown, MD – Yesterday afternoon, an ambulance arrived at Germantown Reproductive Health Services, a late-term abortion clinic in Germantown, Maryland, and transported one of LeRoy Carhart’s abortion patients to a local hospital.
The woman had been in contact with pro-life activists prior to her abortion, but continued on with the 2-day procedure. During her second day of the procedure, her husband slept in the care with their three young children while she was inside the abortion clinic.
Video of the incident taken by a local pro-life activist shows that Carhart got into the ambulance and went with the patient to the hospital even though he has no hospital privileges anywhere, and hasn’t since 1987.
The woman appeared to be conscious enough to pull a sheet over her head as she was wheeled to an awaiting ambulance. The extent of her injuries are unknown at this time.
This is the second medical emergency involving a Carhart abortion patient this year. On Feb. 7, 2013, Jennifer Morbelli died from complications to a 33-week abortion after Carhart left town and was unavailable to provide emergency assistance to her or her family. Carhart remains under investigation by the medical board in relation to that incident.
“How many more women must be injured or killed by LeRoy Carhart? We need the medical board and other Maryland officials to halt the endless delays and take swift action to protect the public from this shoddy abortionist,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We predicted this would happen and no one listened. Now it’s time for Maryland authorities to buck up and do the right thing before anyone else lands in the hospital or the morgue.”
A press conference will be held by local pro-life leaders to address specific demands for action against Carhart before more women suffer.
The press conference will be held on Thursday, July 11, 2013 at 10:00 AM EDT at Germantown Pregnancy Choices, 13230 Executive Park Terrace, Germantown, MD 20874, which is directly across from Carhart’s late-term abortion clinic. Press Conference participants will include the Christian Defense Coalition, the Maryland Coalition for Life, and other local pro-life groups and individuals.
