Woman Dies from Abortion in Maryland, Media Silent

Just weeks after the mainstream media glorified the work of late-term abortionists, the work of LeRoy Carhart, one of their heroes of partial-birth abortion, killed 29-year-old Jennifer McKenna Morbelli who was 33 weeks pregnant.  An investigation has begun after she died Thursday in a local emergency room and Carhart was nowhere to be found.

As of the time of the initial posting, not a single mainstream media article had appeared concerning the death.

UPDATE 2/11/13: Washington Post finally covers the story by slamming pro-lifers for alarming the public just because a woman happened to "visit" an abortion clinic days before her death.

UPDATE 2/20/13: Washington Post reports "woman died of natural causes"

-- From "Sundance 2013: 'After Tiller' puts a face on abortion doctors" by Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times 1/18/13

Premiering today at the Sundance Film Festival as part of the U.S. documentary competition, “After Tiller” is an intimate and heartfelt look at the four doctors performing third-trimester abortions in the United States, doing so even after the 2009 assassination of such a physician, Dr. George Tiller. . . .

“What’s interesting is that the four doctors really are proud of what they do,” said [film director Martha] Shane during a phone interview from Park City on Thursday morning. “They don’t feel they are working in the shadows. They’re brave enough to let the world know they do third-trimester abortions, they are public about it. I think part of the reason they agreed to participate in this film was actually to show that they are proud of the work that they do, it helps women and alleviates suffering.”

. . . the doctors see their work as important and worth continuing. As to whether the protests against what he does ever gave him doubts regarding his work, Dr. LeRoy Carhart said, “I never even give it a second thought.”

From "Woman Dies After Botched 33-Week Abortion Takes Her Life" by Steven Ertelt, 2/8/13

According to information the pro-life group Operation Rescue released to LifeNews today, the unnamed woman went to the abortion facility for a third trimester abortion from out-of-state and arrived at Germantown Reproductive Health Center on Sunday to start the abortion process. Local pro-life advocates protesting outside saw her every day until yesterday, and described her as appearing “pale and weak.”

Early Thursday morning . . . The woman was taken by her family from her hotel to a nearby hospital emergency room at approximately 5:00 a.m. Efforts by hospital staff to contact Carhart or get informational assistance from the abortion clinic were unsuccessful.

Operation Rescue says the abortion patient suffered massive internal bleeding into her abdominal cavity. She slipped into a Code Blue condition approximately six times before finally succumbing to her injuries at around 9:30 a.m. The case has been placed with the Medical Examiner for further investigation.

Neither the Washington Post nor the Baltimore Sun has yet reported on this woman’s death in Maryland, despite the fact that there was an 11 a.m. press conference today in front of the Germantown clinic. The story is also being ignored by the Associated Press, USA Today, the New York Times, and television news networks.
