Thousands of Citizen Complaints Lodged Against Carhart for Third-Trimester Abortion Death
Annapolis, MD — Over 6,000 of citizen complaints against late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart were successfully delivered to the Maryland Board of Physicians yesterday by representatives of Students for Life in America. The complaints were in support of a formal complaint filed on February 19, 2013, by Operation Rescue seeking license revocation for Carhart in the death of 28-year old Jennifer Morbelli.
Morbelli had sought an abortion at Carhart’s late-term abortion clinic in Germantown, Maryland, at 33-weeks into her pregnancy after her pre-born daughter, Madison, was diagnosed with a seizure disorder. After her abortion, Carhart left Maryland and could not be reached by Morbelli’s family when her condition deteriorated later that night. The next day, February 7, Morbelli was taken to Shady Grove Hospital where she eventually died from massive internal bleeding. Hospital staff also failed to reach Carhart, which complicated and delayed the diagnosis of her condition and appropriate treatment that might have saved her life.
