Live Action, a youth-led pro-life organization issued a press release regarding a new video in their "Inhuman" series which documents the illegal and inhumane practices of late-term abortion centers in the U.S. The latest video captures revealing testimony from Leroy Carhart, the doctor whose case, Gonzales v. Carhart, led to the national ban on late-term abortions in 2007.In this video, he is seen counseling two women in his Nebraska clinic who are in their third trimester and are seeking an abortion.
When the Live Action investigator, who is 26 weeks pregnant, asks about what happens to the baby during the procedure, Dr. Carhart responds:
Dr. Carhart: It gets soft – like, mushy – so you push it through.
Woman: So what makes the baby “mushy”?
Dr. Carhart: The fact that it’s not alive for 2 or 3 days.
Woman: Oh. So I’ll have a dead baby in me?
Dr. Carhart: For 3 days, yeah… It’s like putting meat in a crock pot, okay? … It gets softer. It doesn’t get infected or–
Woman: OK, so the dead baby in me is like meat in a crock pot.
Dr. Carhart: Pretty much, yeah … in a slow cooker.
The investigator inquires what will happen in the case of complications:
Woman: But if we run into trouble … for some reason, I’m not able to deliver, you’ll be able to get it out in pieces.
Dr. Carhart: We’d take it out…
Woman: What do you use to break it up? Just–
Dr. Carhart: A whole bunch of–
Woman: You’ve got a toolkit.
Dr. Carhart: A pickaxe, a drill bit, yeah (laughs).
He goes to tell the investigator that one of his patients, Jennifer Morbelli, died of complications in the pregnancy rather than from the abortion.
As Carhart explains in the video: "We have had one woman die in the clinic, OK?… She was a lot farther along than you, but the coroner, it was reported to the coroner and everything, and they said, 'yeah, she died again of complications with the pregnancy, but not from the abortion.' Everything from the abortion went fine."
This is not true. According to the death certificate issued by the State of Maryland, where the abortion was performed, Morbelli died of "disseminated intravascular coagulation" caused by "amniotic fluid embolism following medical termination of pregnancy".
“Dr. Carhart’s testimony is shocking and sickening," says Live Action president Lila Rose. "He compares a baby in the womb to ‘meat’ in a ‘slow cooker.’ He jokes about his abortion toolkit, complete with ‘pickaxe’ and ‘drill bit.’ Finally, he outright lies when he claims that his patient, Jennifer Morbelli, died of complications in her pregnancy rather than from his abortion.”
Last week, Live Action released videos of a Bronx, NY abortion counselor describing how a born-alive baby would be placed in a jar of toxic “solution” to ensure death, a D.C. doctor who would leave a baby born alive after a botched abortion to die, and a Phoenix, AZ clinic worker who “would not resuscitate” should a baby be born alive after a failed abortion. The videos are part of Live Action’s six-month undercover investigation shedding light on the illegal and inhuman practices of numerous abortion centers throughout the country.
Rose is calling for Attorney General Eric Holder and the U.S. Attorney’s office to investigate and prosecute those who admit they violate federal law. Rose also called on local health and law enforcement officials to investigate and put an end to gruesome practices that endanger women and children.
