From Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America:
We are heartbroken at the news that another mother and child have fallen victim to the horrors of legal abortion in this country. Yesterday, a 29 year-old woman, with her whole life ahead of her, walked into LeRoy Carhart’s office and never walked out. Dr. Carhart did more than just end the life of her eight month child-in-utero, he ended hers.
Carhart has a long history of abhorrent practices at his late-term abortion facilities. He should have been shut down a long time ago. If he had, this mother and child and countless others would still be alive today. He needs to be stopped immediately.
We pray for this young woman and her family and recommit ourselves to abolishing all abortion so that never again will a woman feel that killing the life within her is her only choice. So that never again will a pre-born child have his or her life snuffed out in the womb. So that never again will butchers like LeRoy Carhart be legally allowed to take the life of mother and child.
