On Sunday, March 20, six emergency responders in two emergency vehicles rushed a woman to Shady Grove Hospital from LeRoy Carhart’s Germantown, Maryland office, marking the fourth woman in four consecutive months to be transported by ambulance due to medical emergencies related to a late term abortion. According to eye witnesses, at 6:04 pm an ambulance transported an underage girl to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital after starting an abortion procedure earlier that afternoon.
Executive Director of Maryland Coalition for Life, Andrew Glenn states: “With this many medical emergencies happening so close together, the Board needs to immediately suspend LeRoy Carhart’s license while these unfortunate incidents are fully investigated. There have been 7 documented injuries and 1 death here in Germantown and 5 other serious cases from his Nebraska office. This man is a danger to women, and it is the responsibility of the State authorities to thoroughly examine the competency of this out of state doctor who is nearly 75 years old.”
Germantown Pregnancy Choices will be filing a formal complaint to the Maryland Board of Physicians today to report the medical emergencies that occurred during the last four months.
On December 15 and January 19 ambulances were documented transporting women from Carhart’s office in Germantown. The February 4 ambulance emergency occurred after he stayed late to speak to a group of pro-choice medical students at Johns Hopkins University.
During the question and answer session (min 50:55), a student commented that LeRoy Carhart’s health status had come into question recently in regard to exhaustion and questioned whether there are any regulations affecting the number of hours he could work. He admitted that he looks “too old,” but denied ever being, “impaired,” despite working long days, 7 days per week, and flying back and forth across the country.
The seven women taken to local hospitals from Germantown Reproductive Health Services at 13233 Executive Park Terrace in Germantown have occurred since July of 2013. In February of 2013, Jennifer Morbelli died less than 24 hours after Carhart completed the abortion of her 33 week old baby from that same office. Carhart has been flying to Maryland since December of 2010 to conduct late term abortions after his home state of Nebraska approved the Abortion Pain Prevention Act earlier that year prohibiting an abortion at or past 20 weeks.
Germantown Pregnancy Choices is an office providing resources and referrals for women in crisis pregnancies. It is located directly across the parking lot from Carhart’s office at 13230 Executive Park Terrace in Germantown, 301-916-5433.
