abortion clinic examination roomAn abortion industry watchdog group hopes a New York abortionist will finally face trial over a botched abortion.

In July of last year, Robert Rho performed a second trimester abortion on 30-year-old Jaime Morales at Liberty Women's Healthcare in Flushing, New York. When she continued to bleed excessively after the procedure, Rho performed a second one. Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue tells OneNewsNow the staff was concerned, and they had good reason to be.

"He released her even though she was wobbly. She could barely walk," the pro-lifer relays. "She'd actually passed out and fallen down inside the office, and he released her anyway, knowing that she was not stabilized and that she was still bleeding."

Sullenger, CherylMorales died while her sister was driving her home. Autopsy revealed her cervix was lacerated, her uterus was punctured, and her uterine artery was sliced. 

"He was charged with manslaughter, second-degree manslaughter -- it's actually reckless homicide in New York," Sullenger explains. "It's a Class C felony, and he is scheduled by the end of the month to go to court, and we're hoping that this case will actually be resolved at that time."

Shortly after Morales died from her injuries, Rho surrendered his medical license and closed down his abortion clinic. He pled not guilty to the criminal charges and is free on $400,000 bond. The trial has been delayed 11 times already.
