Life Legal is providing assistance in two Maryland malpractice lawsuits against notorious late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart* and his associates. In both cases, the botched abortions resulted in punctured internal organs and permanent injuries.
In one case, Carhart’s associate, Elizabeth Swallow, began the process of aborting a 25-week-old baby, a two-day ordeal. When the dilation did not proceed fast enough, the abortionist administered additional medications and then placed the woman under general anesthesia. The woman woke up screaming in pain and was bleeding heavily because her uterus and colon had been perforated. Swallow then called in Carhart, who is 80 years old, for assistance. The woman had to be rushed to the hospital where doctors diagnosed retained fetal parts in her uterus.
Just over a week later, another woman began bleeding profusely during a late-term abortion and Carhart was again called in to assist. Carhart was unable to control the bleeding and the woman was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for suspected uterine rupture and multiple injuries. Surgeons at the hospital had to remove her uterus, rendering her infertile.
The lawsuit alleges that the abortionists failed to inform the women of the late-term abortion procedure and its dangers, including uterine rupture and injury to other internal organs. The lawsuit also alleges the abortionists did not properly monitor the women and did not properly administer the abortion-inducing drugs.
In both cases, Carhart gave the women medications to start dilation during their first visit to his office. Maryland does not require any pre-abortion ultrasound or counseling about fetal development and does not have a statutory waiting period before a woman can obtain an abortion. Pro-aborts in Maryland call these “unnecessary legal requirements,” preferring to send woman to the slaughterhouse without any information about what they are about to endure.
It should be noted that our role in this case is not to make abortionists “safer” child killers, but rather to put them out of business.
