Questions Still Surround Morbelli Tragedy
by Matt Vespa
As I posted yesterday, last week twenty-nine year old Jennifer Morbelli sought a late-term abortion from Leroy Carhart. It went horribly wrong, and she had massive internal bleeding in her abdominal cavity. She went into a Code Blue condition six times before passing away from her injuries. The reason for her late-term abortion is still unknown. Unless the pregnancy endangers the life of the mother, late-term abortions are illegal in the United States under the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003.
According to Jill Stanek, a leading pro-life advocate, the child was wanted, but was suffering from “fetal anomalies.” What these anomalies were are still unknown. All we do know is that upon learning upon her baby’s condition two week ago:
[quote]The family returned again on Wednesday, presumably for the delivery of Jennifer’s dead baby Madison, staying nine hours, an extraordinary length of time. They left at 4:35 p.m. Carhart and his wife Mary Lou left soon afterward. The two typically fly out on Wednesday afternoons to either Indianapolis, Indiana, or Bellevue, Nebraska, to commit abortions on Thursdays. Carhart is what’s known as a “circuit rider” abortionist.
At approximately 5:00 a.m. on Thursday, February 7, Jennifer presented at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Rockville, Maryland, which is almost nine miles fromCarhart’s clinic. Family members told hospital personnel they had tried to reach Carhart several times, but he did not return their calls.
At approximately 9:00 a.m. Jennifer coded. She coded a total of six times before she was pronounced dead at about 10:00 a.m. It was during this time Carhart called the hospital. He never showed up.
What’s more disturbing, according to Stanek, is that the state of Maryland licensed seventeen abortion clinics, including Carhart’s, without inspecting one of them.[/quote]
This would be the same Leroy Carhart recently hailed as a hero at the Sundance Film Festival. Nice juxtaposition: fantasy hero among purveyors of fantasy; dealer of death in real life.
As for the dead woman he killed … total sadness …
