HUGE NEWS – Carhart leaving Maryland

This is the news we have been hoping and praying for over the past six years… Leroy Carhart is LEAVING MARYLAND!  Praise God!  This is something we can truly be thankful for today.

This is breaking news and we are still learning the details.  We will let you know when we find out more information about Carhart and what will be happening at Germantown Reproductive Health Services.  Please pray that not only will Leroy Carhart stop performing abortions everyone (not just Maryland), he will not be replaced by a different abortionist, and that GRHS will shut down for good.  And as always, pray that Carhart and the staff of GRHS will find the forgiveness that can only come through Jesus, our Lord and Savior.

For additional information, see the Operation Rescue press release http://www.operationrescue.org/archives/thankful-late-term-abortionist-carhart-calls-it-quits-in-maryland/

Thank you for all of your prayers and support!  This is fantastic news after we just completed our 12th 40 Days for Life campaign in Germantown.

Evil Incarnate – Let the truth be known throughout the land

Let us take a moment to examine some defining characteristic of three troubling movements, which have cast long and dark shadows across modern history.

 

Nazism

  • Tactics: Terror, mutilation, and dismemberment
  • Human Tragedy: millions of innocent adults and children slaughtered
  • Ideology: that Jews and others are inferior, sub-human, and less than the Aryan race

 

Radical Islamic State

  • Tactics: Terror, mutilation, and dismemberment
  • Human Tragedy: thousands of innocent adults and children slaughtered
  • Ideology: that all those who oppose radical Islamism are inferior and honor false gods

 

Abortion

  • Tactics: Terror, mutilation, and dismemberment
  • Human Tragedy: more than a billion unborn babies slaughtered worldwide
  • Ideology: that unborn babies are inferior, undeserving of all humans rights

 

These three movements have led to similarly staggering human tragedies justified by illegitimate ideologies. However, abortion uses a tactic that neither Nazism nor the Radical Islamic State widely attempted: to deceive mothers into cooperating with the abortion of their own babies. The deployment of this evil tactic has led to the destruction of more lives than have been destroyed by the Nazism, Radical Islamic State, and all other evil empires combined.

 

The deception upon which abortion is founded – that abortion is choice and not murder – has been vehemently embraced by some of American society’s most-notables. Among these are influential individuals who claim to be outspoken advocates for women, including contraception pioneer Margaret Sanger, civil rights activist Jesse Jackson, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards, former Senator Ted Kennedy, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and President Barrack Obama.

 

While the evil of abortion has the most shattering impact on unborn babies, it has a much broader destructive effect. This watershed atrocity begins with one child, spills over into mothers, fathers and families, and floods across all of human society. In 1986 at the United Nations General Assembly and again in 1994 at the National Prayer Breakfast, Nobel Peace Prize winner Mother Teresa of Kolkata (Calcutta) clearly stated her grave concerns with abortion:

  • “I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?” (1886)
  • “Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.” (1994)

Noting Mother Teresa’s concerns, we cannot help but look at the carnage occurring on streets across America: school shootings, rampant homicide, domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and violent breakdown of the trust between citizens and police. Mother Teresa’s worst fears have become a way of life – and it’s not unreasonable to trace this crisis to the devaluing of human life which extends even into a mother’s womb.   The worsening carnage on our streets is a deplorable but ultimately unavoidable result of the carnage of abortion.

 

In light of this most pressing holocaust, we must not shy aware from truth because it convicts us and our society. Whether complicit or not, all of us – children, mothers, families – are victims of the evil of abortion.   We must all stand together to defend the right to life of all persons, to defend the health and safety of all women, and to defend the liberties upon which our nation was founded.

Maryland Coalition for Life Call to Action

Considering the above information, if you wish to stand together with us in our fight against intrinsic evil and for human life, we urge you to forward this message to everyone you know and can reach. You can help us to spread the truth about the outrage of abortion. Furthermore, we urge you to contact your legislators and implore them to respect the dignity of every human person and put an end to abortion.

 

As you ponder whether you will stand with us, we leave you with the following words of wisdom:

  • “The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”

–Albert Einstein

  • “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men should do nothing.”

–Edmund Burke

 

May we all have the courage and strength to do the right thing!

Leroy Carhart sued by patient

Leroy Carhart, who performs 2nd and 3rd trimester abortions in Germantown, Maryland has been sued by a former patient.  The negligence/malpractice suit was filed against Carhart on September 27, 2016.  For information on the malpractice suit and detailed information on the events surrounding the injury, read the Operation Rescue article: http://www.operationrescue.org/archives/abortionist-leroy-carhart-sued-for-a-botched-clinton-supported-late-term-abortion/

Please pray for the injured patient, her family, the lawyers representing her, and the judges who will be deciding the outcome of the suit.  And as always, please pray that Leroy Carhart and the staff of Germantown Reproductive Health Services will turn from their evil and find the forgivness that is offered through Jesus Christ.

Aging Abortionist 4 for 4

On Sunday, March 20, six emergency responders in two emergency vehicles rushed a woman to Shady Grove Hospital from LeRoy Carhart’s Germantown, Maryland office, marking the fourth woman in four consecutive months to be transported by ambulance due to medical emergencies related to a late term abortion.  According to eye witnesses, at 6:04 pm an ambulance transported an underage girl to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital after starting an abortion procedure earlier that afternoon.

Executive Director of Maryland Coalition for Life, Andrew Glenn states:  “With this many medical emergencies happening so close together, the Board needs to immediately suspend LeRoy Carhart’s license while these unfortunate incidents are fully investigated.  There have been 7 documented injuries and 1 death here in Germantown and 5 other serious cases from his Nebraska office.  This man is a danger to women, and it is the responsibility of the State authorities to thoroughly examine the competency of this out of state doctor who is nearly 75 years old.”

Germantown Pregnancy Choices will be filing a formal complaint to the Maryland Board of Physicians today to report the medical emergencies that occurred during the last four months.

On December 15 and January 19 ambulances were documented transporting women from Carhart’s office in Germantown. The February 4 ambulance emergency occurred after he stayed late to speak to a group of pro-choice medical students at Johns Hopkins University.

During the question and answer session (min 50:55), a student commented that LeRoy Carhart’s health status had come into question recently in regard to exhaustion and questioned whether there are any regulations affecting the number of hours he could work.  He admitted that he looks “too old,” but denied ever being, “impaired,” despite working long days, 7 days per week, and flying back and forth across the country.

The seven women taken to local hospitals from Germantown Reproductive Health Services at 13233 Executive Park Terrace in Germantown have occurred since July of 2013.  In February of 2013, Jennifer Morbelli died less than 24 hours after Carhart completed the abortion of her 33 week old baby from that same office.  Carhart has been flying to Maryland since December of 2010 to conduct late term abortions after his home state of Nebraska approved the Abortion Pain Prevention Act earlier that year prohibiting an abortion at or past 20 weeks.

Germantown Pregnancy Choices is an office providing resources and referrals for women in crisis pregnancies.  It is located directly across the parking lot from Carhart’s office at 13230 Executive Park Terrace in Germantown, 301-916-5433.

Court of Appeals Decision (Glenn vs. DHMH)

The Court of Appeals decision has been reached in “Andrew Glenn vs. Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.”  And unfortunately, it was a 7-0 decision AGAINST my request for public information.  As a result of this decision, the surgical abortion facilities in Maryland can hide in anonymity behind the government.  This is a very dissapointing decision and will allow the abortion industry to continue to operate with no public oversight.  I also believe this decision will contribute to more and more women being hurt or killed from inept abortionists who come to Maryland to perform risky abortions.

Despite this loss, we know that God is in control and His will is being done in Maryland.  We must continue to raise awareness about the horrible abortionists and evil events taking place in Maryland.  Thank you for your prayers and support throughout this case.

Maryland Court of Appeals (Glenn v. DHMH) video

Thank you for your overwhelming support and prayers regarding ‘Glenn v. DHMH.’  The court case went very well.  The ACLJ lawyer, Erik Zimmerman, did a fantastic job.  He very effectively argued why it is important for the court to decide the public information is released.  Here is a link to the archive video of the oral arguments: http://www.courts.state.md.us/coappeals/media/2015/coa20160111caseno48.mp4

Please continue to pray as the 7 judge panel deliberates their decision.  The decision is not expected for several months.

Maryland Court of Appeals (Glenn v. DHMH)

The Maryland Court of Appeals, the highest court in Maryland, will be hearing “Andrew Glenn v. Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene” on January 11, 2016.  Please pray for the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) lawyers who will be arguing the case.

Over three years ago, through a simple Public Information Request, Andrew Glenn asked for copies of the application for surgical abortion facilities in Maryland.  However, the copies of the applications received from the Maryland DHMH were redacted of certain information.  Largely in part because one of the Planned Parenthood locations told the DHMH not to release the information.  DHMH did exactly what Planned Parenthood asked them to do, and are keeping the public information out of the public eye. In Maryland, it appears Planned Parenthood has power over the DHMH.

In order to keep the information secret, the Maryland DHMH “sued” Andrew to keep the public information hidden from the public.  The court case has already been tried twice in Maryland, and Andrew lost both times.  Please pray the Maryland Court of Appeals will decide differently than the previous two hearings.  Pray the information will be revealed and the Maryland abortionists will no longer be able to hide behind the government.
