Source describes ‘medical procedure’ gone wrong
Officials for Operation Rescue, one of the cutting edge pro-life organizations in the U.S. ever since it bought an abortion clinic to shut it down and convert the building into its pro-life headquarters in Wichita, are reporting the death of a woman in Maryland after her “medical procedure” went wrong and the abortionist couldn’t be reached.
The name of the victim, who was 33 weeks pregnant, was as yet unavailable, but Cheryl Sullenger, senior policy adviser for OR, said trusted sources had described the death of the 29-year-old woman after Leroy Carhart, who does late-term abortions out of the Germantown Reproductive Health Services, started the procedure and then was unreachable when there were complications.
The woman ultimately died at a local hospital, Sullenger’s source confirmed.
The 29-year-old apparently was undergoing a multi-day procedure used by late-term abortionists, Sullenger said.
“Sidewalk counselors saw her every day from Sunday to Wednesday. She appeared, later in the week, to be pale and weak,” Sullenger told WND today.
Early Thursday, there were complications, including chest pain and other discomfort, and the woman tried to reach Carhart but he was unavailable, the source reported. The woman then was transported to a local emergency room by her family where emergency workers also tried to reach Carhart, unsuccessfully.
The complication, apparently bleeding into the abdominal cavity, got worse, and she “coded,” or had her heart stop, six times, Sullenger’s source confirmed.
Emergency room doctors ultimately were unsuccessful at reviving her.
The source, who insisted on anonymity, reported an investigation into the death has been launched.
“We believe this incident supports our belief that this is a dangerous abortion procedure,” Sullenger told WND. She said it involves a shot that kills the unborn baby, and then the abortionist leaves the mothers unmonitored.
