Remembering Jennifer Morbelli
It’s another tragic story of a young woman’s life being lost to a botched abortion. In this case, it was twenty-nine year old Jennifer Morbelli, who was a patient of Dr. Leroy Carhart. Carhart performed a third trimester abortion on Ms. Morbelli, which resulted in massive internal bleeding in her abdominal cavity. She died last Friday. This isn’t the first time a patient of Dr. Carhart has died while he was performing a third trimester abortion. According to LifeSiteNews:
This tragic incident occurred the same day that another medical emergency took place at a New Mexico abortion clinic involving long-time Carhart associate Shelley Sella. At the time of that incident, a Medical Board in New Mexico was voting to clear Sella of negligence charges, related to a botched third trimester abortion using the same risky late-term abortion method employed by Carhart. This dangerous out-patient abortion process includes long periods of time where the patient is unmonitored while taking strong doses of a drug that causes unpredictable and sometimes violent contractions.“The avoidable death of this young woman dramatically illustrates the dangers of third trimester abortions that are done outside of the safety of obstetrical standards,” said Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue and Pro-life Nation.
“In 2005, Carhart was also involved in the death of Christin Gilbert, who died after a third trimester abortion in Wichita, Kansas. It is time for medical boards to put an end to these horrifically dangerous and barbaric third trimester abortions. If they do not, we can only expect Carhart and his associates to send more women to the morgue.”
Dr. Carhart’s butcher’s bill is disturbingly devoid of any remorse. Lila Rose, President of Live Action, released thisstatement on February 8 concerning the death Ms. Morbelli.
While his twenty-nine-year-old patient and her eight-month-old baby were dying horribly, late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart skipped town, leaving the hospital and the young woman’s family desperate for answers. Carhart himself is busy whitewashing and promoting his grisly work through a Hollywood film. So how many women and children are killed by abortionists like Carhart without our ever knowing, their deaths covered up by pro-abortion physicians?
Not only does Carhart’s violent work literally tear women from their children, but it also divides women against themselves; they suffer and mourn for their lost children, yet they are all the while told by Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion entities that they have no good reason to grieve.
These tragic and unnecessary deaths underline what Live Action has detailed again and again: abortion is not safe – for anyone. Women who understand what these horrible abortions entail do not want them. And those women who are lied to and misled about these “procedures” deserve to know exactly what Big Abortion – and their abortion bosses like Carhart – seek to do to them.
However, the nation – and the political left – is more wrapped up in Christopher Dorner, than the brutalization of women at the hands of an abortionist.
