Operation Rescue reports a 29-year-old woman died Thursday after Maryland abortionist LeRoy Carhart botched her third-trimester abortion. Citing an anonymous source, the group says the woman, who was 33 weeks pregnant, arrived from out of state and was seen entering Carhart's facility, the Germantown Reproductive Health Center, in Germantown, Md., every day between Sunday and Wednesday.
Yesterday morning the woman began having chest pains, and was unable to reach Carhart for help. Her family took her to a local hospital around 5 a.m., and she died at about 9:30 a.m. She had suffered massive internal hemorrhaging. The Maryland Medical Examiner is currently reviewing the case, according to LifeNews.com.
Carhart is also associated with a 2005 death in Wichita, Kan. Christin Gilbert, a 19-year-old girl with Down syndrome, died after undergoing a third-trimester abortion procedure performed by Carhart at a Kansas facility where he worked at the time.
Pro-life advocates plan to hold a prayer vigil near Carhart's Maryland facility next Monday, Feb. 11.
