Pro-life advocacy organization Live Actionled a “Stop the Killing Rally” Monday in front of the office of late-termabortionist LeRoy Carhart in Germantown, Maryland to protest the unsafe practices women face in such clinics.
Police in MontgomeryCounty have closed an investigation, without filing criminal charges,into the death of Jennifer Morbelli, who died from complications due to a33-week abortion performed by Carhart. The abortionist was recently thesubject of a Live Action undercover investigation during which he compared the child in the womb to “meat in a crock-pot.”
Lila Rose, president of Live Action, and Dr. Grace Morrison, Founder of Pray for Germantown, spoke at the rally, attended by over 200 people.
At the same time, Live Action Grassroots Director Kate Bryan was in Boston where she organized a protest at Boston College, where pro-abortion Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny was delivering a commencement address.
The following day, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), who chairs the HouseSubcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, and Rep. MarshaBlackburn (R-TN), joined Lila Rose and Tony Perkins, president of FamilyResearch Council, for a webcast program to further illuminate theviolence against women and children in the abortion industry.
Last week, Franks introduced the Unborn Child Protection Act, or H.R. 1797, which will undergo debate thisThursday at a hearing of the House Judiciary. He said he hopes thetime is right to start pricking America’s conscience.
“Knowinglysubjecting our innocent unborn children to dismemberment in the womb,particularly when they have developed to the point that they can feelexcruciating pain every terrible moment leading up to their undeserveddeaths, belies everything America was called to be,” said Franks. “This is not who weare.”
