Carhart Sends 10th Patient to Hospital on Anniversary of Another Patient’s Death

By Cheryl Sullenger

Germantown, MD — Late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart has sent yet another abortion patient to the hospital – tragically on the anniversary of the death of one of his late-term abortion patients, Jennifer Morbelli, who died from complications to a 33-week abortion on February 7, 2013.

This is the 10th time Carhart has summoned an ambulance to transport one of his patients to the emergency room since he first began working at Germantown Reproductive Health Services (GRHS) in December 2010.

Video provided to Operation Rescue by the Maryland Coalition for Life showed the ambulance arrived at GRHS at 3:05 p.m. About five minutes later, paramedics wheeled out a woman who was sitting upright on the gurney.

“Medical emergencies are increasing in frequency at Germantown Reproductive Health Services. This is an alarming and dangerous trend that must be investigated,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.

The Maryland Board of Physicians is currently refusing to investigate Carhart’s patient care issues unless they are provided with the name and contact information of an abortion patient that suffered injuries at GRHS.

“Unfortunately, the Board completely understands that patient identities are protected by HIPAA, so it would be very difficult for pro-life supporters who witness these emergencies to have access to that information,” said Newman. “It’s a roadblock the Board knows we will have difficulty overcoming. This only protects Carhart so he can kill and maim again and again without consequence.”

The last time an ambulance was called to GRHS was April 4, 2016, when a hemorrhaging late-term abortion patient was rushed to the hospital.

Carhart reportedly quit his job with GRHS in October 2016 while under Congressional Investigation and fighting a major malpractice suit. Carhart returned to work at GRHS about two months later.

Since Carhart’s return, two late-term abortion patients have been forced to return to the abortion facility in the middle of the night suffering unscheduled problems. One woman was pictured waddling into the facility with what appeared to be a plastic shower liner between her legs.

The House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives’ final report noted that Carhart apparently has health issues, including arthritis so severe in his hands that one former worker told the Panel that Carhart was not physically fit to conduct abortions.

The most recent incident occurred four years to the day after Jennifer Morbelli died from complications to a 33-week abortion. As her condition deteriorated overnight after her abortion, neither Carhart nor his staff could be reached. Her family eventually took her to a nearby emergency room where she later died.

Competency Issues Mount as Late-term Abortionist Carhart Unexpectedly Returns to Germantown

By Cheryl Sullenger

Germantown, MD – New information has surfaced concerning abortionist LeRoy Carhart, who had reportedly quit working at a Maryland late-term abortion facility in October 2016, some of which raises additional concerns of his competency to conduct abortions.

Eight weeks after his departure, Carhart unexpectedly resumed abortions at Germantown Reproductive Health Services (GRHS).

“We believe that the original decision to quit working in Germantown was probably meant to be ‘permanent,’ but something apparently happened that changed his mind,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “There are all sorts of rumors out there, but until we can confirm facts, we must refrain from further speculation.”

Since Carhart’s return to GRHS, the Maryland Coalition for Life has published photographs of at least two patients that have returned to the late-term abortion facility in the middle of the night seeking treatment. It is very unusual for women to be seen at any abortion facility in the middle of the night, and it usually means that something has not gone according to plan.

On December 29, 2016, one patient can be seen waddling into the abortion facility with what appeared to be a linen or plastic sheet – possibly a shower curtain liner — between her legs. The image was recorded at 3:49 a.m. By 5:30 a.m., everyone, including the patient, LeRoy Carhart, Mary Lou Carhart, and three of GRHS staff, had vacated the facility.

The following night, another patient was seen entering the abortion facility at 3:58 a.m. There is no indication prompted her to seek treatment at that unusual hour.

Carhart had been under investigation last year by the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives. A subpoena was issued to him seeking information related babies born alive during late-term abortions and to suspected trafficking in aborted baby remains. Carhart never fully complied with the subpoena.

The Select Panel’s final report discussed its investigation into Germantown Reproductive Health Center, noting that it interviewed four of the facility’s employees and one confidential informant. According to the report, the informant “claimed that [Carhart] is not fit to practice due to arthritis in his hands.”

Since December 2010, nine women have been transported by ambulance to a local hospital for emergency treatment Carhart and GRHS could not provide. One of Carhart’s 33-week abortion patients, Jennifer Morbelli, died from complications to the third trimester abortion she received from Carhart in February 2013.

Last September, a former GRHS patient sued Carhart for a near fatal abortion she received on January 18, 2016. Suffering heavy bleeding and severe pain, she was eventually transported to a nearby hospital where it was discovered that she was bleeding internally from numerous life-threatening injuries that included a uterus that had been slashed open from top to bottom during the abortion. That case is still pending.

“It has become all too obvious that LeRoy Carhart poses a serious danger to women,” said Newman. “Please join me in praying for him to leave the abortion industry for good and for both his abortion facilities in Bellevue, Nebraska, and Germantown, Maryland, to permanently close.”

Thankful: Late-term Abortionist Carhart Calls it Quits in Maryland!

Germantown, MD – Abortionist LeRoy Carhart will no longer be conducting abortions at Germantown Reproductive Health Services (GRHS), an abortion facility in Germantown, Maryland, that has until now provided abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy.

According to local sources, Carhart’s last abortions in Maryland took place during the week of October 30, 2016. He returned to GRHS on November 8, but stayed only a few hours, sending several very late-term patients home without abortions. He left later in the afternoon and never returned.

“The fact that Carhart will no longer be aborting babies in Maryland is something to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. We congratulate our co-laborers at the Maryland Coalition for Life for their hard work that has made this day a reality,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Carhart’s brand of very late-term abortions are morally reprehensible and very dangerous, having taken the lives of countless viable babies and two of this patients. We have worked for years to end this atrocity, and today, Maryland is free from the dangers posed by Carhart.”

GRHS, once among the few abortion facilities that would openly do the expensive third-trimester abortions, now offers them up to 19 weeks.

Carhart located his extremely late-term abortion business to Germantown in December 2010. This move was prompted by the 2009 closure of Women’s Health Care Services in Wichita, Kansas, where he also worked conducting third-trimester abortions. His plan to move his late-term business to Nebraska was thwarted by the passage of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act – the first of its kind – by the Nebraska Legislature in April 2010, which banned abortions at 20 weeks or later into pregnancy.

While in Maryland, Carhart’s risky abortions were responsible for the emergency transport of at least eight women to hospital emergency rooms. In addition, one of his third-trimester patients, Jennifer Morbelli, died in 2013 from complications to her procedure.

Earlier this year, a Federal lawsuit was filed against Carhart for a seriously botched late-term abortion that came close to costing the life of another one of his patients. He also faced the scrutiny of the House Select Panel on Infant Lives, which issued subpoenas to him and GRHS for documents related to the suspected trafficking of aborted baby remains and the deaths of babies who may have been born alive during abortions at the Germantown facility.

Carhart continues to operate an abortion facility in his home town of Bellevue, Nebraska, where he still does abortions up to 20 weeks.

“At age 75 and not in the best of health, we believe it is a great time for Carhart to retire,” said Newman. “We pray that before next Thanksgiving, he will make the decision to quit the killing business for good.”
