Today, Live Action released the fourth video in its new investigative series, “Inhuman: Undercover in America’s late-term abortion industry.”

This video features one of the stars of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart.

Today’s video begins a shift in the “Inhuman” conversation from the atrocity of illegal infanticide to the atrocity of legal late-term abortions. As pro-life Democrat Kirsten Powers wrote at The Daily Beast on May 6:

What we need to learn from the Gosnell case is that late-term abortion is infanticide. Legal infanticide. That so many people in the media seem untroubled by the idea that 12 inches in one direction is a “private medical decision” and 12 inches in the other direction causes people to react in horror, should be troubling….

Gosnell is accused of aborting infants past the 24-week limit in Pennsylvania. But those same deaths – if done in utero – would have been perfectly legal in many states….

But medical advances since Roe v. Wade have made it clear to me that late-term abortion is not a moral gray area, and we need to stop pretending it is. No six-months-pregnant woman is picking out names for her “fetus.” It’s a baby. Let’s stop playing Orwellian word games. We are talking about human beings here.

Indeed, the investigator in the Carhart video was 26 weeks pregnant. Carhart told her he couldn’t legally commit her abortion in Nebraska but to head over to his Maryland clinic, where he could. Was it unusual that she was aborting a perfectly healthy 6-mo-old, she asked? No, said Carhart, she was his fourth that week.

Carhart, pictured top left, is infamous for several reasons, most recently in the death of one of his patients, Jennifer Morbelli.

Morbelli’s death amazingly coincidental

In LA’s video Carhart lies to say Morbelli’s death was coincidental (at 8:59 on the video). She may have died the morning after the abortion of her 33-wk-old baby, but her death had nothing to do with the abortion.


The coroner would beg to differ, citing Morbelli’s abortion as a cause of death.

Crock pots, pickaxes, and drill bits

In LA’s video Carhart describes the late-term dilation and evacuation (D&E) abortion procedure in the most vulgar of ways. Explaining that the investigator’s 26-wk-old baby would be “mushy” at the time of delivery due to the fact s/he had been dead for 2 to 3 days, Carhart graphically expounds (beginning at 4:45):

Carhart: It’s like putting meat in a crock pot, okay? It gets softer. It doesn’t get infected or–

Woman: OK, so the dead baby in me is like meat in a crock pot.

Dr. Carhart: Pretty much, yeah, kind of much – in a slow cooker….

Woman: But if we run into trouble … for some reason, I’m not able to deliver, you’ll be able to get it out in pieces.

Carhart: Take it out in pieces…..

Woman: What do you use to break it up? Just–

Dr. Carhart: A whole bunch of–

Woman: You’ve got a toolkit.

Dr. Carhart: A pickaxe, a drill bit, yeah (laughs).

Fingers, friends, and fruit

The classy doctor on sexual activity following an abortion (at 2:15)…

Carhart: And there are no restrictions afterwards. Except for nothing in your vagina for three weeks. As I tell everybody, that includes fingers, friends, and fruit, ok? [laughs]


Do-it-yourself hotel room abortions

If this isn’t cause for an investigation by state regulators in Maryland, I don’t know what is.

After warning the investigator not to call 911 if she senses something amiss in her hotel room, Carhart incredibly states he sets mothers up with self-delivery packs. Completing late-term abortions in hotel rooms must certainly violate all sorts of OSHA and state health and safety laws. And how would hotels like the thought of abortions being completed on their premises? Blood in the bed, babies in toilets, really? Beginning at 7:04 on LA’s video:

Woman: What happens if I deliver at the hotel?

Carhart: Well, we came and helped her clean up the mess, and took the sheets to the clinic, and washed them, and sent her back to the hotel, and she was fine.

Woman: OK, just stay there, or come, we’ll figure this out, OK. But if I do end up going into labor like this woman, you come help clean it up.

Carhart: We’ll come get, yeah, yeah but–

Woman: You’ll take the baby away.

Carhart: Yeah, we’ll come and help.

Woman: OK.

Carhart: We’ll give you, we’ll give everybody a little pack to put stuff in in case it does happen, but as I said–

Woman: A pack?

Carhart: A pack of little drapes and sheets and gloves and all those things, that if you had to do something then you could.

Woman: OK, so if for any reason I did, you’ve given me–

Carhart: You’ve already got the stuff to take care of it.

Woman: A bag to put the baby in, OK.

And so we’ve come full circle, back to the days when women underwent abortions in hotel rooms. How far toward “safe” has abortion come? Not far. This Washington Post photo is of Carhart in a Maryland hotel room with his wife, but it works well with the concept that he is prepared to complete abortions in hotels…


Throwing Tiller under the bus

Another abortion death not Carhart’s fault, he says, was Christin Gilbert’s.

ChristinGilbertGilbert (pictured right) was a 19-yr-old pregnant mother with Down syndrome who died on January 13, 2005, after a 28-week abortion at George Tiller’s clinic in Wichita, Kansas. In the edited LA video (at 2:35), Carhart says she was not his patient. In LA’s raw footage Carhart expounds (at 1:24:25):

Carhart: And the Christin Gilbert thing on the internet was not my patient. I ended up seeing her in the h–

Woman: Who’s Christin Gilbert?

Carhart: Oh if you go on the Internet eventually you’ll find it, she was a 19 year old mentally handicapped girl from Texas that Dr. Tiller had operated on, and she happened to come back to the clinic on a day that I was covering for him, but it was four days after, she had what’s called post-partum HELLP syndrome, which happens very, very–you’ve heard of eclampsia with women–

Woman: Yeah.

Carhart: Pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, well if it happens before delivery the cure is delivery, and it usually is never a problem, but if it happens after delivery, nobody has been cured from it…. But the “Anti’s” just deciding to blame me for it, because Tillers’ dead, why blame him. [laughs]

Tiller was murdered on May 31, 2009. Nice of Carhart to throw his dead friend under the bus. And also to lie about the cause of Gilbert’s death, which the coroner concluded was, “Complications of therapeutic abortion.” Furthermore, to state no mother who develops HELLP syndrome  after delivery “has ever been cured” is ludicrous. In fact, the mortality rate is 1%.

Operation Rescue has much more on the death of Christin Gilbert.

Will America be repulsed by these revelations about Crock Pot Carhart and late-term abortions? Previous “Inhuman” releases showed willingness by personnel at abortion clinics in New York =, in Washington, D.C., and Phoenix, Arizona, to either kill abortion survivors outright, or let them asphyxiate. Can we begin the road back to decency and sanity?
