The woman had been in contact with pro-life activists prior to her abortion, but continued on with the 2-day procedure. During her second day of the procedure, her husband slept in the care with their three young children while she was inside the abortion clinic.
Video of the incident taken by a local pro-life activist shows that Carhart got into the ambulance and went with the patient to the hospital even though he has no hospital privileges anywhere, and hasn’t since 1987.
This is the second medical emergency involving a Carhart abortion patient this year. On Feb. 7, 2013, Jennifer Morbelli died from complications to a 33-week abortion after Carhart left town and was unavailable to provide emergency assistance to her or her family. Carhart remains under investigation by the medical board in relation to that incident.
