Yesterday a woman died of complications due to a late term abortion performed by Leroy Carhart in Germantown, MD:
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 is at least the second death known to be caused by Carhart. Many maternal deaths due to abortion go unreported, however, because it is SOP of abortion mills to move women out to a local hotel immediately after in order to distance the mill from any injuries or deaths that appear/occur after abortions. It's just legal. It's neither safe or rare.
