Pro-Life Activists Demand Action After NY Teacher Dies Following Late-Term Abortion

Pro-life activists are demanding legal action after the death of a 33-week pregnant woman who underwent pregnancy termination at an infamous abortion facility in Germantown, Md.

“It is so tragic that this family had to lose not only their nearly full-term child, but also their wife, daughter, and sister,” said Michael Martelli, executive director of the Maryland Coalition for Life, at a memorial service on Monday. “What is most appalling is that the state of Maryland refused to hear the pleas of the community, and has allowed [Carhart] to butcher women and children.”

Martelli, who has also spoken to The Christian Post about LeRoy Carhart’s dangerous abortion practices in the past, was referring to the case of 29-year-old Jennifer McKenna-Morbelli, a teacher from New Rochelle, N.Y., who died on Feb. 7 after suffering massive internal bleeding into her abdominal cavity.

The Huffington Post revealed that four days before the incident, McKenna-Morbelli underwent a late-term abortion to terminate her 33-week pregnancy at Carhart’s abortion clinic in Germantown, which Martelli has been campaigning for a number of years to shut down.

The case is currently being investigated both by the Maryland Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and the Montgomery County Police Department. But Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation, said that his organization is going ahead with legal action against Carhart.
