Aging late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart may have to close his Maryland abortion facility after a medical waste hauler stopped doing business with him, according to the pro-life group Created Equal.
On Tuesday, Created Equal said it confirmed that the Pennsylvania company Bio Haz is no longer collecting aborted babies and medical waste materials from Carhart’s abortion business in Bethesda, Maryland.
“Without a disposal service, Carhart won’t be able to continue killing babies, and that would save countless lives,” said Mark Harrington, president of the pro-life organization.
Carhart aborts unborn babies into the third trimester when they are viable outside the womb. Though he is almost 80 years old, he continues to abort unborn babies at his late-term abortion practice in Maryland.
According to Created Equal’s investigation, two medical waste disposal companies canceled contracts with Carhart in 2018, but Carhart found another contractor in Bio Haz.
Created Equal urges these companies not to do business with life-destroying abortion facilities through its Project Weak Link initiative. It believes medical waste disposal companies are the “weak link in the chain” of the abortion industry; and, without them, abortion facilities must close or at least temporarily stop aborting unborn babies.
Unlike most abortion activists, Carhart is not shy about admitting that an abortion kills a baby. He is one of just a few openly practicing late-term abortionists in the United States.
During an interview with the BBC in 2019, Carhart shocked journalist Hilary Andersson when he candidly admitted that he kills babies, and he has no problem doing so – even after they are viable.
Unlike many abortion activists, Carhart uses the word “baby,” too.

Andersson noted: “It’s interesting that you use the word ‘baby’ because a lot of abortionists won’t use that. They’ll use the word ‘fetus’ because they don’t want to acknowledge that there’s a life.”
“I think that it is a baby,” Carhart replied, “and … I use it with the patients.”
“And you don’t have a problem killing a baby?” she asked.
“Absolutely not. I have no problem if it’s in the mother’s uterus,” he answered.
Babies are not the only ones who are dying after a visit to one of Carhart’s abortion facilities. Operation Rescue, a pro-life watchdog group, recorded evidence of at least 18 serious medical emergencies at his abortion facilities in Maryland and Nebraska since 2012, including one woman who died along with her baby after a late-term abortion in 2013.
