Young Woman Dies 3rd Trimester Abortion!

 

Sundance Film Festival 'HERO' Leroy Carhart Kills Young Woman During 3rd Trimester Abortion in Germantown, MD

Contact: Michael Martelli, Maryland Coalition for Life, 410-775-6670

GERMANTOWN, Md., Feb. 8, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- A 29 year-old woman was pronounced dead at a local hospital in Germantown, MD on Thursday, February 7th, as a direct result of complications experienced during a 3rd trimester abortion by LeRoy Carhart -- who was hailed as a "hero" in the film "After Tiller" at the recent Sundance Film Festival.

The young woman arrived at Carhart's Germantown, MD, abortion facility -- Germantown Reproductive Health Services -- Sunday evening to begin a risky, four-day, third-trimester abortion. She was approximately 33 weeks pregnant.

Witnesses say that the young woman appeared "pale and weak" when she returned to the clinic Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday for the remaining steps of the late-term abortion.

Thursday morning around 5am, the young woman was short of breath and in intense pain. When she and her family tried to contact LeRoy Carhart for assistance and follow-up care, he could not be reached. The young woman was transported to a local hospital Emergency Room by private vehicle.

By 10am Thursday, the young woman "coded" 6 times, and had to be revived by Emergency personnel. Due to immense blood loss and hemorrhagic shock, her body was unable to recover, and she was pronounced dead.

The Maryland Medical Examiner spent a significant amount of time reviewing the case and the records at the hospital on Thursday, and determined the case needed further investigation due to the unusual circumstances of her death.

All information was provided to MDCFL on condition of anonymity, and by an extremely credible, confidential source.

"It is so tragic that this family had to lose not only their nearly full-term child, but also their wife, daughter, and sister," said Michael Martelli, Executive Director of the Maryland Coalition for Life. "What is most appalling is that the State of Maryland refused to hear the pleas of this community, and has allowed this man to continue to butcher women and children."

On the very same day that this woman died, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene posted on their website that they issued a license to Carhart's clinic to perform abortions -- without a single inspection of the facility.

"He already killed Christin Gilbert in Kansas in 2005, and now another senseless tragedy has come as a result of Carhart's so-called women's healthcare and the apathy of the pro-abortion Maryland State Government," said Martelli.

A prayer vigil, memorial, and follow-up press conference will be held in Germantown at 9am on Monday, February 11, just next to the office park where Carhart conducted the third trimester abortion. More information about the event and location is available at

Christin Alysabeth Gilbert Died From a Third-Trimester Abortion

Christin’s tragedy is perhaps the best-documented abortion-related death in the history of Roe v. Wade.

Termination at this stage of pregnancy is illegal unless medically necessary.

So, if this story is even halfway true, you already have a mother who may be in some kind of bad health.

third tri abortions unless the woman will die otherwise is sick. they could have given birth to a premie and it lived at that stage. why this shit is allowed to happen is beyond me. i almost died during labor with my son who ended up being born via emergency csection and was adopted by my cousin the day he was born. i cannot wrap my head around stories like this one.

Is there an actual news source for this? 



 You mean, the tabloid turned "news source"? lol Can we do better than that? The only thing I can find is a bunch of pro life websites perpetuating this absurd sounding story.

So, why is she having an abortion at that stage? There has to be a medical reason. Also, as one poster pointed out, how many women die from childbirth?

I can't find a link to a story about this other than on anti-choice websites.

And it is illegal to get an abortion this late in pregnancy UNLESS there is some serious medical complication.

Well if an extreme right wing anti choice organization says it happened....

As jaxTheMomm said, all this tabloid site does is repeat that Operation Rescue and other pro-life groups are making this claim.

Thank you for posting the facts. I get tired of the proganda. women say your shouldn't have abortions because they're dangerous but seen not to care how dangerous childbirth is.

Quoting im23vaughn:

People die all the time. They die giving birth .regularly. Its a sad thing but it happens. I support a woman right to choose even if it cost her, her life. Its her choice not mine.

  To add to what you just said... On average, five hundred women die giving birth in the USA a year. On average, 12 women die in the USA from complications of abortion. .05% of all women who have abortions have severe complication and that does not just mean death. That could mean infertility, etc...Worldwide, over half a million women die each year from childbirth and around 68,000 a year die from abortion related complications. So, I think people like you and I can actually figure out which is the more unsafe practice, when  you break out the numbers and statistics. I am so sick of the BS propaganda, know what I mean?

I searched Maryland newspapers for this story and couldn't find a link or anything about Carhart except some old stories about protests at his clinic.
