VICTORY! Waste Disposal Company Quits Carhart Thanks to Action by Operation Rescue’s Supporters

PRESS RELEASE

Bethesda, MD – On June 5, 2018, Operation Rescue posted an article concerning a medical waste disposal company that had contracted with Maryland abortion facilities for the disposal of human aborted fetal remains. Supporters were encouraged to contact the disposal company and ask them to end their services to abortion facilities, especially AbortionClinicsOnline.org (ACO), a late-term abortion facility owned by LeRoy Carhart in Bethesda, Maryland, which conducts abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy.

And contact they did!

As a result, within minutes of releasing the article, Operation Rescue was contacted by Trey Krell, General Manager for Biomedical Waste Services, Inc., which had contracted to provide services for ACO.

By early afternoon, Krell had sent OR a copy of a letter dated June 5, 2018, addressed to Carhart’s wife, Mary, notifying ACO that Biomedical Waste Services, Inc. was terminating services effective immediately.

Krell also informed OR that contracts had already been “closed” with other surgical abortion businesses.

“We really appreciate and thank Mr. Krell for doing the right thing by severing business ties with Carhart, ACO, and other abortion businesses,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We especially appreciate all our supporters who took the time to call and e-mail. This is really your victory! Thank you!”

Out of courtesy to Mr. Krell and his company, the original report will be removed from our website at www.OperationRescue.org, but it will still be available here for reference purposes.

“We remain watchful and are praying that no other disposal business will contract with Carhart, ACO, or any other abortion facility in Maryland,” said Newman. “But if they do, we know our amazing supporters can once again be counted on to jump into action! We appreciate you all more than you know.”

Take Action: Disposal Company Keeps Carhart’s Late-Term Abortion Clinic & Others Open

UPDATE!!! Biomedical Wast Services has terminated all services to Carhart’s Bethesda abortion business. See update on this victory at this link: https://www.operationrescue.org/archives/victory-waste-disposal-company-quits-carhart-thanks-to-action-by-operation-rescues-supporters/

Bethesda, MD – Operation Rescue has learned that a company called Biomedical Waste Services, Inc. is sole provider of medical waste disposal for all thirteen surgical abortion facilities in Maryland. In plain terms, the company provides disposal of aborted baby remains — some as large as 30 weeks or more — for the state’s abortion facilities, including LeRoy Carhart’s late-term abortion facility located in Bethesda, Maryland.

Carhart’s clinic, AbortionClinicsOnline.org (ACO), conducts abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy with the majority of abortions taking place in the late second and third trimesters of pregnancy.

Biomedical Waste Services collects the human remains for incineration.

The disposal of aborted baby remains has long posed a difficult problem for abortion facilities nationwide. Few businesses want to be associated with abortion businesses, and fewer with the disposal of the babies’ heartbreaking broken bodies. In Maryland, other disposal companies have refused to do business with abortion facilities.

Without a contract with a waste disposal company, all of Maryland’s abortion facilities would be in left without a legal means of disposing of the remains of babies they abort.

Very quickly, that would become an untenable situation, especially at Carhart’s ACO facility in Bethesda where the bodies of late-term aborted babies are very large and difficult to store. This could ultimately force the clinics to shut down.

“Biomedical Waste Services is keeping Carhart and a dozen other abortion businesses open while profiting from the grisly practice of child-killing. The service they provide is so critical to the abortion facility’s continued operation that, if not for them, all thirteen abortion facilities would be out of business in Maryland, including Carhart,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Because these abortion businesses can’t operate without their services, Biomedical Waste Services are just as responsible for the barbaric killing of innocent, viable babies as they are.”

Biomedical Waste Services is headquartered in Baltimore, but serves the following states: Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania, according to its website.

“This is a large, family-owned waste disposal company that doesn’t need the abortion businesses. The abortion businesses need them,” said Newman. “Their collaboration with the Abortion Cartel, including Carhart’s late-term abortion facility, must be exposed. We hope this will lead the company to end its relationship with all abortion facilities and create a new policy that prevents it from profiting from the barbaric killing of innocent babies in the future.”

In addition to Carhart’s late-term abortion operation in Bethesda, Biomedical Waste Services picks up aborted baby remains from the following abortion facilities:

• Annapolis Health Center Planned Parenthood.
• Baltimore Health Center Planned Parenthood.
• Gynemed Surgical Center, Baltimore.
• Hillcrest Clinic of Baltimore.
• Whole Women’s Health, Baltimore.
• Carafem, Chevy Chase.
• Metropolitan Family Planning Clinic, Baltimore.
• Hagerstown Reproductive Health Services.
• Femi-Care Surgery Center, Owings Mills.
• Potomac Family Planning, Rockville.
• Silver Spring Family Planning (American Women’s Services).
• Metropolitan Family Planning Clinic, Suitland.

There are also eight abortion facilities in Maryland that offer only abortion drugs. Operation Rescue wants to see Biomedical Waste Services end their business relationships with them as well.

“Abortion is bad for business, and we urge Biomedical Waste Services to end its collaboration with all Maryland abortion facilities, which is, in turn, enabling them to end thousands of innocent lives each year,” said Newman.

TAKE ACTION: Contact Biomedical Waste Services, Inc.

Operation Rescue is asking pro-life supporters to contact Biomedical Waste Services, Inc. and ask that they stop doing business with Maryland’s abortion facilities immediately.

Abortion Patient Carried by Clinic Workers to Private Vehicle; Ambulance Turned Away

By Cheryl Sullenger

Montgomery, AL – It was an all-too-familiar sight at abortion facilities around the country. Pro-life activists snapped photos as an ambulance pulled into the parking lot of an abortion clinic. This time, it happened at Reproductive Health Services in Montgomery, Alabama, on May 25, 2018.

But this incident was anything but routine.

Before the ambulance could arrive, witnesses told Operation Rescue that they saw two clinic workers carrying a woman under her arms out of the abortion facility and into a private vehicle. She and her companion had left the area by the time the ambulance arrived – presumably in route to a hospital emergency room.

Photos of this disturbing scene show only two abortion clinic workers holding up a blanket to block pro-life photographers, who tried to document the event.

When the ambulance arrived a short time later, another clinic worker told the ambulance driver that they were no longer needed, so the ambulance left the scene without a passenger.

This unusual situation raised concerns about the woman who had to be carried to her car. Why couldn’t the woman walk on her own? Did she suffer injuries during an abortion? Why didn’t the clinic wait for the ambulance? Did she get proper medical treatment for her mysterious condition?

“We have lots of question and not very many answers,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We are still looking into this and hope the woman involved is ok and did not receive an abortion.”

Reproductive Health Services made news last month when a recent inspection report noted a citation for failure to report suspected child sex abuse on a 13-year old girl who received an abortion, then returned to the abortion business within 15 months for a second abortion.

“There are all kind of signs that this abortion facility may be covering up for pedophile sex traffickers,” said Newman. “Given their refusal to protect young girls from abuse, it is not a stretch to think they may be hiding a botched abortion as well.”

Operation Rescue will post updates as more information becomes available.

UPDATE! Strange But True: Woman Seeking Abortion Suddenly Gives Birth at Mississippi Abortion Facility

UPDATE! 6/1/2018: After Mississippi news sources reported yesterday that the woman who delivered the baby at the Mississippi abortion facility was seeking an abortion, now news stories have surfaced that report that may not have been the case. The source of both stories appears to have been Shannon Brewer, Director of the Jackson Women’s Health Organization where the incident occurred. Why the change in the story and what really happened? Operation Rescue filed a formal complaint yesterday with the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure seeking an investigation to ensure that the facility and abortionist Bruce Norman were in complete compliance with all applicable laws and patient care standards. Operation Rescue will update this developing story as new information breaks.

Jackson, MS – A reportedly full-term baby girl was born yesterday in the most unlikely of places – an abortion facility.

The baby’s mother was said to have been seeking an abortion at the Jackson Women’s Health Organization (JWHO) in Jackson, Mississippi. She was in the middle of her first consulting appointment and waiting for an ultrasound examination to determine her baby’s gestational age.

That was when she began to give birth.

A 911 call for assistance with a “full birth” was placed by the abortion business. The ambulance’s arrival alerted pro-life supporters to the medical emergency that was unfolding inside. A radio dispatch recording obtained by Operation Rescue confirmed that the subject of the emergency was a birth. (Listen to the dispatch below.)

Mother and daughter were transported to a nearby hospital where news reports say they are both healthy and doing well.

JWHO says it only conducts abortions through the 16th week of pregnancy. A new law passed and signed by Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant just two months ago bans abortions after 15 weeks.

“We are grateful that the mom and baby are in good health, but there is just something about this whole story that seems suspicious. It’s hard to imagine a woman who did not know she was full term suddenly delivering a baby without knowing she was in labor. We are calling for a full investigation into this incident to ensure that all state laws were observed and patient care standards were met,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.

“Most pregnant mothers who enter the abortion clinic leave without their beautiful babies. Several weeks ago, this baby girl could have been killed by the same doctor who delivered her today,” said Laura Duran, president of Pro-Life Mississippi.

That doctor was abortionist Bruce Elliott Norman. Given his checkered background, calls for an investigation are more than justified.

Norman is a long-time associate of JWHO’s owner, Diane Derzis, who also owned a now-closed Birmingham, Alabama, abortion business, New Woman All Women (NWAW), where Norman also worked. Both Derzis and Norman were essentially run out of that state after a coalition of pro-life groups, including the CEC for Life and Operation Rescue, complained about a 2012 incident where two overdosed abortion patients at the Birmingham facility were hospitalized on the same day.

That complaint resulted in an inspection that yielded a massive 76-page deficiency report that eventually led to the closure of the abortion business by the Alabama Department of Public Health.

Norman was later caught by the pro-life groups operating Derzis’ Birmingham abortion facility illegally, which resulted in a 2013 disciplinary complaint against Norman. His Alabama medical license has been listed as “inactive” since.

By January 2016, Derzis and Norman finally gave up trying to keep the NWAW open. The building was sold and was torn down.

“The Derzis/Norman partnership is a dangerous one that has been characterized by documented unsanitary facilities, incompetent practices, and deceptive behavior at the Birmingham and Jackson facilities. If JWHO was not the last abortion business in Mississippi, it would have been shut down long ago by the State. That says a lot about the shoddy nature of the place,” said Newman. “That new little baby girl born under Norman’s watch at JWHO has no idea how lucky she is to be alive and well today.”

911 from 2005: Abortion Worker Withholds Critical Information About Dying Abortion Patient

Wichita, KS – Operation Rescue has released a video today featuring a 911 audio recording placed January 13, 2005, on the day Christin Gilbert, 19, died from a botched third-trimester abortion at a now-shuttered late-term abortion facility in Wichita, Kansas.

“Even though this 911 recording is over 13 years old, it is significant today because the abortionist responsible for Christin Gilbert’s fatal abortion was LeRoy Carhart,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Given his most recent botched abortion, in which an abortion patient hemorrhaged so severely that she lost half her blood supply and could have easily died, it is important to revisit the Gilbert case and realize just how little consideration this abortionist has for the lives of his patients.”

Christin Gilbert was a 19-year old with Down syndrome who became pregnant in 2004 due to sexual assault. Her parents did not realize that Christin was with child until her pregnancy was well advanced. They took her to George Tiller’s Women’s Health Care Services (WHCS) in Wichita, Kansas, which was at that time the largest free-standing late-term abortion facility outside Communist China.

Carhart was employed by WHCS and was on duty when Christin was brought in for her 29-week abortion.

Due to her disability, Christin was an innocent victim in every sense. Shemade no decision to become pregnant or to have an abortion. Both were forced upon her, and perhaps that makes her story so much more tragic.

After Christin’s abortion, she grew ill and drifted in and out of consciousness. Her parents returned her to the abortion clinic where she passed out once again. Carhart’s efforts to resuscitate her proved futile.

Finally, 911 was called by former clinic worker Marguerite Reed. From the start, Reed was defensive and evasive. While Christin’s live ebbed away, she placed the 911 dispatcher on hold for a painfully long 45 seconds, only to return more defiant than ever, with no information about Christin’s critical condition that could have assisted emergency responders.

An ambulance transported Christin to Wesley Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead. The paramedics that bought Christin to the hospital appeared grim and worried as they rushed her gurney into the emergency room.

Despite every effort possible, including a medical board complaint, a grand jury investigation, and an appeal to former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, both Carhart and clinic owner George Tiller were never held accountable for Christin Gilbert’s tragic and avoidable death.

After WHCS closed in 2009, Carhart relocated his late-term abortion business to Germantown, Maryland, where he conducted another fatal third-trimester abortion on Jennifer Morbelli, a 29-year old grade school teacher.

Now, Carhart is also operating in Bethesda, Maryland doing abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy.

“Carhart has killed before and he will kill again. It’s just a matter of time,” said Newman. “As Carhart has aged, he has gotten sloppier with these dangerous late-term abortions. His most recent patient emergency came far too close to being another fatality. Medical boards in Nebraska and Maryland need to stop playing politics and protect women from Carhart’s negligence before someone else dies.”
