Germantown Reproductive Health Services operated for over 20 years, but came under fire by pro-life activists when it tapped LeRoy Carhart, a Nebraska doctor who performs late-term abortions, to operate out of this facility.
“It’s a miracle. You fight for something for seven years, and all of a sudden it’s handed to you,” saidDennis Donnelly, media director for the coalition, to Washington Post.
LiveAction has more on the notorious butchery of LeRoy Carhart–with him being one of three late-term abortionists not held to accounts for their brutal practices:
The Germantown facility is one of three in the United States that are notorious for committing late-term abortions on a regular basis. The other two are located in Colorado and New Mexico. Carhart has a history of injuring and killing women during abortions, as well as committing health violations and gross negligence. For years, he has committed abortions after 26 weeks gestation when babies are clearly viable (though viability is medically possible much earlier) and when the health of the mother can be saved more quickly through a C-section.
“I am doing everything in my power to keep my practice open, and I am considering options looking toward the future,” he said. “It’s heartbreaking that anyone would want to take health care away from women and families by targeting our clinic.”
Woman: — for some reason, I’m not able to deliver, you’ll be able to get it out–
Dr. Carhart: We’d take it out in pieces.
Woman: — in pieces. …
Woman: What do you use to break it up? Just–
Dr. Carhart: A whole bunch of, you know–
Woman: (Laughs) You’ve got a toolkit.
Dr. Carhart: A pickaxe, a drill bit, yeah (laughs).
The sale hasn’t been approved yet, but will likely transpire. The Maryland Coalition for Life set up a pregnancy crisis center across the street in 2011 and has offered sidewalk counseling there since 2011.
Let’s hope with advances in medicine and attitudes trending pro-life continue to shed light on the evil nature of abortion.
