Woman dies during 33-week abortion

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.

A baby at 33 weeks.

A baby at 33 weeks.

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.

  1. There is a prayer vigil at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow in Germantown, MD for this poor woman and her child. I will be there!


    • Well, friends, about 300 people were at the prayer vigil this morning. The case is truly tragic. One of the homemade signs being held by a participant really struck a chord with me. It said “Death by Carhart” and then had a picture of the beautiful mother underneath. There were several pro-life speakers; including one doctor who, although she hated to do it, described to the crowd exactly what “procedure” Jennifer had received. It was graphic; it hurt to hear it out loud. Tragic; unbelievable; really sad. Please pray for Jennifer, her daughter, Madison; and for the conversion of LeRoy Carhart and other abortionists.


  2. Monstrous evil like this clinic must be defunded.


  3. Born at 7 months (28 weeks) I can’t say I’m too enthusiastic about late-term abortion (wasn’t before either, but especially not in this case),


  4. Time for murder charges and his license revoked, if he even has a license now. We sure don’t want him back here.


  5. This is what happens when God is removed from schools and everyday life.The promoters and practitioners of these acts of evil are a products of the ” me first ” attitudes taught in today’s centers of “lower learning ” by the “gray pony tail ” professors who yearn for the “perfect Godless society “.
    Wild Bill


  6. I read somewhere that Carhart believes in God, but said a woman is her child’s “guardian ad litem” (whatever that means) and it is good for her to decide whether it is best that her child lives or dies! He is also a registered Republican, yt embraces the worst part of the Democratic party.

    Why not legalize other types of murder then? Maybe parents can be guardians by killing their dependent kids at any age up to 18! Maybe you could go to the convenience store and shoot the cashier and when the cops show up you could tell them the cashier was going to have a sad life and it was best that it end.

    Late term abortion is so disgusting and barbaric. I can’t imagine the unbearable pain the baby feels having the back of their skull stabbed.
