TITUSVILLE, FL -- Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life are pressing forward with their undercover investigation to expose late-term abortion across America.

The latest phone call reveals notorious abortionist Leroy Carhart’s willingness to kill healthy babies of healthy mothers up to 22 weeks of pregnancy in Nebraska. 

Bud and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico and Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life released the following statement regarding Carhart:

“Carhart has a sordid history of bouncing from state to state, performing abortions into the latest stages of pregnancy. This notorious circuit riding abortionist's opportunistic manipulation of the varying late-term abortion laws nationwide, resulted in the tragic death of Jennifer Morbelli in Maryland in February 2013, due to complications sustained during a third-trimester abortion at 33 weeks. The abortionist had already left Maryland to return to Nebraska when Mrs. Morbelli went into distress. Her family had to take her a local emergency room, where she died.

“Carhart's careless and deadly behavior is the result of inconsistent laws between the states and demonstrates how vitally urgent it is for the Senate to pass the Pain- Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, scheduled for a vote next week. This bill will protect babies at 20 weeks of development and beyond and will make it impossible for abortionists like Carhart to kill babies in the late second trimester and third trimesters of pregnancy.”

A previous recording in this undercover investigation revealed Carhart’s willingness to kill healthy babies of healthy mothers up to 28 weeks into pregnancy in Bethesda, MD

Priests for Life is leading a campaign to urge Democratic incumbents up for re-election in 10 Red States to vote in favor of the Pain-Capable Bill. Residents of the 10 states have been invited to sign an open letter to their senators.
