Woman ‘dies at age 29 after late-term abortion performed at Maryland clinic 33 weeks into pregnancy’
Daily Mail: A 29-year-old woman died Thursday of complications from a late-term abortion, according to claims by several pro-life organizations. The unidentified woman went to the Germantown Reproductive Health Center in Maryland for an abortion performed by Dr. Leroy Carhart during her third trimester, according to Operation Rescue, a pro-life group.
She was 33 weeks pregnant when she arrived at the center on Sunday to start the procedure. The woman ‘was seen by pro-life activists every day through Wednesday,’ according to a press release from Operation rescue. ‘Witnesses said she appeared “pale and weak.”’
Early Thursday, the woman began suffering chest pain and she was taken to an emergency room around 5 a.m., Operation Rescue claims. She allegedly suffered internal bleeding in her abdominal cavity and died around 9:30 a.m.
The Germantown Reproductive Health Center would not confirm or deny the reports. A woman who answered the health center’s phone Saturday morning said ‘no comment’ when asked about the patient. MailOnline requested to speak to the doctor who performed the alleged abortion. She replied, ‘There’s nobody here right now,’ and she promptly hung up the phone.
The Maryland Medical Examiner’s office says it is investigating the death of the woman but that the inquiry has nothing to do with the Germantown clinic. The investigation is relatively routine, a spokesman said, noting that the Medical Examiner conducts 10,000 such investigations a year.
The Germantown clinic has come under fire in the past for performing late-term abortions. Dr. LeRoy Carhart of Nebraska began performing abortions at the clinic in December 2010 after Nebraska passed laws limiting late-term procedures.
Protestors have stood outside his clinic almost every day since he opened his practice in Germantown.
An abortion at 33 weeks? At that age, the baby weighs a little over 4 pounds and has passed the 17-inch mark. He’s rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren’t fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal.
This is so evil. So sad that this women and her baby died at the hands of this abortionist.
