I previously wrote about the death of Jennifer Morbelli (pictured at left.)
The question must be asked: Is the administration of Governor Martin O’Malley partly responsible for her death?
Based on the various accounts, Morbelli was 33 weeks pregnant when she died this past Thursday at Shady Grove Hospital in the DC suburbs of Maryland. Morbelli was a married kindergarten teacher from New Rochelle, New York.
She had set a baby registry up that is still online and her obituary indicates she had already named her unborn baby girl Madison Leigh. Jill Stanek reports that the decision to have an abortion apparently came in the past two weeks after learning of “fetal anomalies.”
According to Stanek, the process started last Sunday, which is a normal procedure for late term abortions at the facility. The family returned to the facility Wednesday and was there for nine hours, after which LeRoy Carhart and his wife both left to go out of state to perform abortions the next day in either Indiana or Nebraska.
Thursday morning, Morbelli’s family took her to Shady Grove Hospital and reported that they’d been unable to get through to Carhart. By 10 a.m., she was dead. Carhart called in via telephone but never showed up.
Troy Newman of Operation Rescue was quoted as saying:
“This is a case of not only shoddy practices, but patient abandonment that we believe rises to the level of criminal conduct. We will press for criminal charges in this case, in addition to Board discipline.”
Under Governor Martin O’Malley, Carhart was granted a license to perform abortions in Maryland despite his track record and despite lies on his application to the medical board (these are pointed out below.)
Some of Carhart’s issues reported on include:
In Nebraska, a non-disciplinary agreement was made with Nebraska authorities where Carhart agreed to stop falsifying medical records, falling asleep during abortions, and interrupting abortions to take personal phone calls. Some of the shoddy abortion practices resulted in numerous emergency hospitalizations and at least one patient died from a late-term abortion at Carhart’s hands,
What is Governor O’Malley going to do about it now? Will we see anything done at all by the Governor or the Democrats controlling the legislature to stop Maryland fromremaining a place where dangerous late-term abortions take place and draw women from out of state?
