Carhart Patient Dead From Horrific 33-Week Abortion Injuries

Germantown, MD – A 29-year old woman died yesterday as the result of fatal complications suffered during an abortion at 33 weeks that was done by LeRoy Carhart at Germantown Reproductive Health Center in Germantown, Maryland. Information about the incident comes from an extremely credible anonymous source.

The woman, who came for a third trimester abortion from out-of-state, arrived at GRHC on Sunday and was seen by pro-life activists every day through Wednesday. Witnesses said she appeared “pale and weak.”

Early Thursday morning, the woman began suffering chest pain and other discomforts. Her attempts to reach Carhart were unsuccessful. The woman was taken by her family from her hotel to a nearby hospital emergency room at approximately 5:00 a.m. Efforts by hospital staff to contact Carhart or get informational assistance from the abortion clinic were unsuccessful.

The patient suffered massive internal bleeding into her abdominal cavity. She slipped into a Code Blue condition approximately six times before finally succumbing to her injuries at around 9:30 a.m. The case has been placed with the Medical Examiner for further investigation.

This tragic incident ironically occurred the same day that another medical emergency took place at a New Mexico abortion clinic involving long-time Carhart associate Shelley Sella. At the time of that incident, a politically motivated Medical Board in New Mexico was voting to clear Sella of negligence charges, related to a botched third trimester abortion using the same risky late-term abortion method employed by Carhart. This dangerous out-patient abortion process includes long periods of time where the patient is unmonitored while taking strong doses of a drug that causes unpredictable and sometimes violent contractions.

“The avoidable death of this young woman dramatically illustrates the dangers of third trimester abortions that are done outside of the safety of obstetrical standards,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-life Nation. “In 2005, Carhart was also involved in the death of Christin Gilbert, who died after a third trimester abortion in Wichita, Kansas. It is time for medical boards to put an end to these horrifically dangerous and barbaric third trimester abortions. If they do not, we can only expect Carhart and his associates to send more women to the morgue.”

    Rest in piece momma and baby..bless the father, he is going to have a long road ahead. No one truly knows the circumstances that they were faced with. Everyone is so quick to throw stones.

    I should apologize for categorizing/chastizing the majority of postings here as negative. So many of the original posts were so awful, I couldn’t read past them. What a sad situation this story was for a mother told her baby was facing possible health issues. I don’t change my stance on abortion, however, I wish the child had the chance to be born at 33 weeks, regardless of health issues. Babies have been known to survive from 24 weeks gestational birth, including those with health problems. There are adoptive/foster parents out there ready and willing to accept any child, sick or not, so, even if these parents did not feel they could handle the possible problems, there are others out there that could have. In any case, the child died. If the parents/mother were afraid of the child not living long after birth, it is a moot point bc the child died through abortion anyway…a choice that was certain immediate death. It is beyond a sad situation. From one who has been told I would die if I didn’t do something in the face of my ectopic pregnancy, I certainly am not one to throw stones when living in a glass house. I just wish doctors were (on the majority) more compassionate and willing to allow parents/mothers the alternative to ending a baby’s life, rather, allowing the parents/mother the chance to risk birth and the after health effects. I, too, hope this mother prayed for God’s eternal forgiveness before she lost her life to this mess.

    I have neve been so apauled by something in my whole life. God help our nation when we say it is okay to kill babies. Not only are they being murdered but they are killing them in a painful way.
    Vengence is mine says the Lord! God is watching whether or not they think they are. God is the giver and the taker of life. Whoever thinks it is humane to kill these babies is a very sick human being. God help us

  • my twin daughters are now 37. one has cerebral palsy ; they were 32 weeks gestation when born. first time i held Diane i rocked her in my hand…… Woe to all of us – what horror this is

    I can’t stop thinking about this poor girl and her baby and crying. One bad decision and that could have been me 30 years ago I was in my late 2nd trimester ,hospitalized for depression and very messed up when I finally saw a doctor who tried to talk me into an abortion I am a weak person but thank God I didn’t listen A friend of mine was told her baby might have a serious birth defect She wouldn’t even think about abortion The kid is an honor student and athlete Doctors are trying to protect themselves from lawsuits by telling women their babies might have birth defects Even if they do if only the perfect were allowed to be born, none of us would be here I know what it’s like to cave in to pressure,however, and the pressure today is for women to have abortions. In my day the pressure was to put the baby up for adoption which I did even though I loved him more than anything. I deeply regretted it, but have since found him and we are healing I have lost many jobs when I mentioned this I didn’t realize how much ‘birthmothers’ are hated in our sick society.

    We do NOT have the right to judge. Only God can do that.
    We should show compassion. A husband lost his wife and daughter. A Mother and Father lost their daughter. Brothers and Sisters lost their Sister. Instead of judging, we should pray instead.

    Morbelli and McKenna families -You do not know me, but I prayed for Jennifer and her baby today at Mass. I offered up my Mass and Communion for Jennifer, her baby, the husband, family, and loved ones. May Jennifer and Madison Leigh rest in peace. May God Bless the hurting family! I will remember Jennifer, her husband, baby, and family in my daily rosary!

    Not judging……but if she hadn’t CHOSEN to murder he baby she would still be alive!

    She didn’t care what her husband felt about the child since she took away his right to choose to allow it to live.

  • Gedda fan

    Jeb- you presume to know what the communication was between her and her husband. That’s presumption……. p[ls do not refer to females [ or male ] babies in the 3rd person singlular neuter; the baby IS a she not an ‘ it’.

  • DB

    I am trying not to judge…it isn’t mine to do. But, what I do not understand why they would even put the baby in her obituary. It wasn’t like the baby died under “normal” circumstances. She chose to abort her baby…..had someone killed her while she was pregnant and her baby died, then I could see the baby being in the obituary (not to mention someone would be going to prison for murder, which is another thing I do not understand….how can the gov’t say women have the right to abortion and it is their right, but if someone were to kill a pregnant woman they are charged with two counts of murder?). And the entire manor of this late term abortion….”lethal injection into the heart through the mothers’ abdominal wall”….what did this poor innocent child ever do to deserve any of this? It sounds like death row! Or taking a sick dog to the vet to be put down. God help us and our country….it is truly a sad state of affairs. It isn’t ours to decide when someone is up to God!!! How could she even return to teach five year olds and be around them every single day, knowing what she did to her own child and wondering what could have been. Have mercy on her soul.

  • Martuska

    It sickens me how ignorant people are. How can anyone believe that mommy and baby are resting in peace somewhere in a better place. I want to believe that we survive physical death but the truth is that the mother and baby are rotting in their grave’s. What was done to this tiny precious angel is unimaginable and I have nothing positive to write about this . This was murder! A lesson to be learned from this senseless tragedy is that a baby was murdered because she wasn’t going to be perfect…. but the perfect Mommy perished too.

  • Governor O’Malley and his complicit commie legislature and the Maryland media are in run-silent mode on this story, because they are all accomplices in murder. They eagerly seek to repeal the death penalty for convicted murderers, but condemn babies to death.

  • Carhart, O’Malley, and the entire democratic legislature are monsters.

  • gedda fan

    Democrats are the party of DEATH – abortion, infantcide, artificial insemination, fetal stem cell, euthanasia, death with dignity suicide are all planks making the platforms of this devilish group- reid, obama both flavors, pelosi, durban, schumacer, bloomberg, gillibrand, pic one any one and you’ll see they fail the ‘ i’m for life’ as a basic God given right test.

  • LMA

    Seriously? Who is the party who is PRO GUNS and lax gun laws? What party believes in equality…unless you are gay or a woman? Before you call yourself a Christian, you best check yourself as to what the teachings of Jesus really were. I’m pretty positive his golden rule was “love one another as I have loved you”. It stops there. Jesus loved all…ESPECIALLY the outcasts… look at Mary Magdeline and the lepars. Jesus practiced love for ALL. He is deemed the Prince of Peace. We were ALL created in God’s image…NO EXCEPTIONS. Judge lest not be judged yourself. Until you live in someone else’s shoes, passing judgement is the worst you can do. If each of us practiced tolerance and compassion for where everyone else is in their life’s journey, imagine what a wonderful place it would be. Just a thought.

  • gedda fan

    pro gun= pro self defense ; read our constitution.. equality = does that mean 2 mommies?
    does a child not have a God given right to a mom and a dad? and i never referred to myself as a Christian, I am a founding member of the Gay Nazi’s for Budda-???? – you are confused; which is no excuse; See Matt25:41- Then he shall say to them also that shall be on his left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry, and you gave me not to eat: I was thirsty, and you gave me not to drink. I was a stranger, and you took me not in: naked, and you covered me not: sick and in prison, and you did not visit me. Then they also shall answer him, saying: Lord, [ LMA – READ THIS PART CAREFULLY – THESE FOLKS ARE PLEADING IGNORANCE- LIKE THEY DID NOT KNOW – LIKE YOU DO NOT KNOW; IT IS SO VERY WRONG TO KILL AN INFANT INSIDE OR OUT OF THE WOMB! ‘when did we see thee”? hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to thee’? [45] Then he shall answer them, saying: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it to me. God the Father wishes not to lose even one soul YES, true — but don’t mis-portray the Christ- He came to put son against father and mother against daughter; see matt 10:35 The Christ and John the Baptist both called the pharisee’s ‘ a brood of vipers’ [ loved everyone huh?] how about those money changers He whipped and drove out of His Fathers house twice i believe? love them too , huh , real good ‘ love’…. …..He told the crowd- Luke 17;2- It were better for him [ who gives even scandal to a child], that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he be cast into the sea, than scandalize one of these little ones. How do you suppose He feels when one of you democrat legislators approves the slaughtering of ‘ one of His ‘little ones’ in the womb?? Ever see a millstone ? He loved the scandalizers too!!! to the Magdalena He actually said; “SHE said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn thee. Go, and now sin no more. Go and SIN no more; why would He admonish and correct her behavior- there He goes being judgemental again!! Why did he say to the cripple-matt 9:5 Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee: or to say, Arise, and walk? “Your sins are forgiven you” [ ruh roh scubby SINS- LMA- do you know what sin is? you’re not stupid?? right…judgement implies justice and law; right and wrong ] -and then to the onlookers He said- that you may know the Son of Man has the Power to forgive SIN – you, Mr. Cripple who has all the very good friends “get up and walk”- does that not denote a judgement?? [ wait- if i listen to LMA- there is no sin cause Christ loves everyone – we are all created equall!! – like those 2 thieves on the adjoining crosses next to His cross are equal right- except one gets to go to Paradise THAT day- the other guy?? he was equal but the other guy, Dysmas was more equal than Gestas- LMA you can’t be that dumb! None so blind as those who refuse to see: What did the Christ forgive then? Sin is such a crime- beyond anything we can imagine- and Christ judged them all: Love for all huh- if ye love me, Keep my commandments;; which means- if you do not keep my commandments, you do not Love Me. Love everyone huh ? Judas,it ‘were better you not be born’? Christ loved Judas too, one of His bishops, AND He judged Him too, just as He will judge all according to His Law ! which is written in the hearts of men, according to Paul -God is JUST or He is nothing. see Luke 12:53 or Matt 10:35 assuming you read scripture for what it really says…. the Prince of ‘Peace’ taught-” For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law”- Democrats, and folks who think like you LMA – who think they have a free ride- “Christ accepts me as i am” , no need for change or adherence to His law- have brought us nothing but death and bankruptcy for over 50 years now. and gov’t control over what i eat, drink and even how much i can flush or light my home with…. things they have no constitutional right to intrude on – abortion is the law of the land- oh pray for us who are doomed.
    We are created to love, know and obey the Law of God and of His Church – We all need to judge the tree[s] for its fruit- the fruit of the democrat party is death ; Republicans are not much better ; look at the tree and see what it produces !
    or do you refuse to see like the pharisee’s?

  • LMA

    Gedda fan- thank you for giving me a good laugh for the day.
    :) Seriously, thank you. I love when people pick and chose from the Bible to justify their hatred, ignorance, and intolerance. I feel your hatred towards not only me, but many others and I have to admit, I have never been spoken to you like that. I pray that you find peace, love, and tolerance in your heart at some point. Life is an amazing gift. Enjoy the beauty!

  • LMA- you are pretty slippery….. Facts hurt, don”t they. You were so quick to off the cuff quote the Christ ; until the reality is presented to you chapter and vs.- I doubt that this will make it thru the censor but here goes -.i detest hypocrisy in all its forms which is why you and i will not be friendly. You chose to mis quote Christ and His laws and intentions until I shopwed you contrary chapter and vs. your non sensical , non reply to my retort to your first miss placed , miss guided tirade is the epitome of hypocrisy, which is the other trademark of a good Democrat!- I don’t thin you are avoiding the truth- i just think you and so many others choose to stay ignorant with this Christ loves me just the way i am, even if i am an abortionist, a sodomite, a child abuser or whatever democrats shoose to be. E.G. Democrats are great at txing and spending others peoples money, including future generations all the while providing none of their own. E.G.- that great R.I Democrat[ Catholic in name only] Joe Biden and Mrs.Dr.Jill Biden gave a whopping $5k of their income to charity; all of 1.5% – for 2011 Biden’s return shows $379,178 in adjusted gross income, along with $30,019 in mortgage interest and $5,350 in donations. He’s spending five bucks in interest for every dollar in charity. A more typical ratio for families at that income level is 2-to-1. Romney gave 29% or $4 mil of his $13.5 income – Obama gave 1 percent of his income, or $10,772, to charity between 2000 and 2004, according to tax data provided in January 2012. In 2005 and 2006, Obama increased his charitable giving to 5 percent of of his income. But they will champion all kinds of social engineering tax and spend actions to enable their sick, deadly agenda- like contraception and aborta facients paid for . under obamacare – i could go on but the other objective readers of this spot know i am spot on. and not alone in my opinion. The Chief Judge of the Roman Catholic church, as reported from ROME, OCT. 2, 2008 Cardinal Raymond Burke acknowledges that the U.S. Democratic Party is quickly moving to become the “party of death.
    Vivo Christo Rey!!

    I have no problems with being friendly with those who think differently than me. As I said, I will be praying for you. Frankly, you know nothing about me. You cannot judge that which you know nothing about. And be careful quoting the Catholic Church, if you want to speak of child abuse and money laundering, they are just the organization you want to be quoting. God bless you.

  • gedda fan

    saw your comment and the tactic of an ad hominem attack simply won’t work – you pray for me? you step out , big paragraph of Christ quotes, miss stating what the Christ said and taught and when you’re confronted with the fallacy of your position, it then suits you to call the other person names and derogatory remarks. i am full of Love for the Christ and His church for it is only thru Him we can come to the Father; Who forgives us AS we forgive others. I forgive you your ignorance but my gay nazi’s for Budda organization is not so quick to overlook your patent stupidity: If we are to save babies from being slaughtered by their moms, dads, Dr’s and others who have put all at risk, like this Family who were victims of their own misguided actions and of Carhart and the Maryland authorities, we must remove all Democrats from office. they are the party of death and will continue to holocaust our nation,especially the black community- We suffer as a nation due to Democrats and the Lord will not let His face shine on this once great nation until and unless we repent. That starts with getting folks like you LMA, who are confused and ignorant, educated and clarified and we remove every Democrat from office , everywhere.
    Vivo Christo Rey!!

    “Gay Nazi’s for Buddha?!?!?!?” REALLY?? WHAAAAAAT??? And this is coming from someone who is pro-life. What kind of name is that?

  • Clairessa Mack

    Okay, correct m if I’m wrong, but CHRIST died for SINNERS, right?? So He does love everyone the way they are. His perfect creation. HOWEVER, He hates the sin. Not the sinner. I am a CONSERVATIVE, well versed in scripture, and Church doctrine. I am PRO-LIFE. Sir, people like you are what is wrong with the pro life movement. Judgmental, instead of compassionate.
