Late-term abortionist subpoenaed by federal panel after a dozen women hospitalized

He’s sent twelve women to the hospital in four years – five since December.  He’s killed two women.  He calls his baby-victims “meat in a crock pot.”  And he has never faced consequences for any of his abuses.

LeRoy Carhart is a notorious late-term abortionist who travels between Maryland and Nebraska committing abortions in a lucrative and suspiciously unregulated manner.  He leaves injured and dead women in his unscrupulous wake and laughs about dismembering his preborn victims.  Watching Carhart nonchalantly defend and describe barbaric abortion procedures on video feels like watching chilling interviews with a psychopath or serial killer.

Out of concern for women and preborn children, the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives, chaired by stalwart Pro-Life Representative Marsha Blackburn (R—TN), has subpoenaed nine entities which have first-hand knowledge of and information about Carhart’s devious methods.  According to the Panel:

The Select Investigative Panel has turned its attention to the allegations of practices by late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart and a Germantown, Maryland, abortion clinic.  Public reports indicate at least five women have been sent to the hospital since December while seeking an abortion in this clinic.  The clinic is one of the few in the nation that performs abortions during the third trimester.

The Select Panel has issued subpoenas seeking further information about these troubling reports to nine entities, including: LeRoy Carhart; Germantown Reproductive Health Services; Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center; Holy Cross Germantown Hospital; Montgomery County Police Department; Montgomery County Department of Fire and Rescue Services; Montgomery County Emergency Communications Center; Butler Medical Transport; and the Maryland Board of Physicians.  The Select Panel’s jurisdiction includes reviewing the practices of providers of second-and third-trimester abortions, and the care of infants born alive as a result of attempted abortions.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, called Carhart “one of the public faces of the abortion industry.”  Carhart was one of four abortionists featured in the documentary, After Tiller, a look at the nation’s only remaining third-trimester abortionists.  Fr. Pavone named Carhart as an example of the debauchery of the abortion movement as a whole, saying: “The fact that pro-aborts hail him as a hero speaks volumes about the abortion business itself.”

The House Select Investigative Panel has proved efficacious on behalf of the women and children victimized by the abortion industry, holding hard-hitting hearings on the issues at-hand refusing to accept shoddy or obfuscating responses from those involved.  Representative Blackburn was vested with subpoena power by former Speaker of the House, John Boehner, who said he hoped the Select Investigative Panel would “get to the bottom” of the scandal involving the abortion industry’s trafficking of aborted baby body parts for profit.  Blackburn has contended with obstinate businesses, including tissue procurement middlemen StemExpress, which have failed to comply with subpoenas or redacted documents beyond comprehension.  Instructions to Carhart and related entities are painstakingly precise in regard to what information must be surrendered and the manner in which the documents are to be prepared and furnished.
