A coalition of pro-life groups -- local and national -- that has
been calling for action against a notoriously well-known late-term
abortionist who's been under pro-life scrutiny for years has
learned that their request is being answered.
Maryland Coalition for Life and Operation
Rescue filed complaints last year against the Germantown
late-term abortion clinic for illegal dumping. Now, the
Coalition is directing its attention to abortionist LeRoy
Carhart. Executive director Michael Martelli tells
OneNewsNow his group's interest is in connection with an
abortion performed on 29-year-old kindergarten teacher Jennifer Leigh Morbelli of White Plains, New
"She showed up at Carhart's clinic to have a late-term abortion
... she went through the process of a four-day abortion
procedure, and LeRoy Carhart basically hopped on a plane Wednesday
night to head out of town to go do abortions in another state and
left her here," Martelli details.
She developed complications and was rushed to a hospital
emergency room last Thursday morning.
"They worked on her for a while, and around 9:00 a.m., her heart

abortion procedure that resulted in the death of Morbelli.
"We've been told that it is going to be some time before the
final report is released with the cause of death information, so we
do know they're taking it seriously," he notes. "The Montgomery
County Police Department is standing by, awaiting those results to
determine if there's any type of criminal prosecution or criminal
investigation that needs to take place as a result."
The Maryland Coalition for Life wants state action to put
Carhart out of work and to close his clinic.
Carhart is the same abortionist who did a late-term procedure on
Christin Gilbert in Wichita in 2005. She also died.
