Woman Dies following Late-Term Abortion at Carhart Clinic
This morning Operation Rescue and the Maryland Coalition for Life announced that yesterday a woman died from complications after undergoing a late-term, 33-week abortion at the hands of the infamous abortionist, LeRoy Carhart, in Germantown, Maryland.
From Operation Rescue's press release:
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 tragic news. Please join the entire SBA List staff in praying for the deceased mother and child, as well as their family during this time.
This is not an isolated incident. LifeNews.com reports that yesterday's death occurred the same day of another medical emergency at a New Mexico abortion clinic where LeRoy Carhart's associate Shelley Sella is working. Carhart himself is also responsible for another woman's death following a botched abortion in 2005.
This woman came to Maryland from out-of-state because Maryland's permissive abortion laws allow Carhart to perform abortions for any reason, throughout all nine months of pregnancy, until the moment of birth.
Women deserve better than a dangerous late-term abortion at the hands of a notorious abortionist.
This is not an isolated incident. Live Action has found that 14 medical emergencies have occurred at Planned Parenthood's nationwide in the last two years. Planned Parenthood is America's largest abortion chain and these incident may only be the tip of the iceberg.
Abortion-advocates supposedly once operated under the premise that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.” The reality is that of these three, abortion is only really legal.Read More

New Book: What to Expect When No One's Expecting
This month, The Weekly Standard writer Jonathan Last is releasing a book entitled "What to Expect When No One's Expecting," about America's growing demographic crisis.
Last explains that despite the widespread myth that the planet is becoming overpopulated, population growth worldwide has actually been declining over the last two generations. Startlingly, American women are reproducing at about the same rate as Chinese women who have been suffered coerced and even forced abortions and sterilizations in the face of the one-child policy for more than three decades.
Last recently did an interview on CBS News and it is clear from the interviewers questions that many Americans remain fearful of the myth of overpopulation, even when presented with the hard evidence that shows population growth declining.
In the book, Last examines how population decline affects nations socially and economically.
If you’re in the DC Area, you may be interested in attending Mr. Last’s lecture this Monday, February 11, 2013 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. The event will be held at American Enterprise Institute, located at 1150 17th Street, NW.
