Germantown, MD, February 12, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com)  – The abortionist who is reportedly behind the death of a woman in a late-term abortion last week is also under criminal investigation for other charges related to illegal dumping, according to the Maryland Attorney General's Office.

A complaint about the alleged dumping had been filed by the Maryland Coalition for Life and Operation Rescue last year. 

Yesterday morning, David Williams of the Maryland Attorney General’s Environmental Crimes Unit contacted Janet Kotowski, a sidewalk counselor in Germantown, to notify her that an investigation was underway. Kotowski wrote a letter last November asking the agency to look into illegal dumping of biohazardous waste and private patient information at Germantown Reproductive Health Center in followup to the complaint filed by Operation Rescue in July, 2012.

Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue also spoke with Williams yesterday and said she has agreed to turn over unedited video-taped evidence of the alleged illegal dumping documented last year to aid in his investigation.

“This is a very serious criminal investigation,” Williams reportedly told Sullenger.

This investigation is separate to ongoing investigations into the abortion-related death of Jennifer Morbelli on February 7, 2013, that are currently underway by the State Medical Examiner, the Montgomery Police Department, and the state’s Office of Health Care Quality.

In July, 2012, Operation Rescue filed a formal complaint with the Environmental Crimes Unit and released edited video and photographic evidence that they say showed GRHS and Carhart engaged in the illegal dumping on a routine basis.

Evidence that Operation Rescue says it found included documents containing private patient information, bloody refuse and possible human fetal remains, and drug control violations. 

“For years we have documented Carhart’s abortion abuses. This time we pray authorities will quickly act before he has the opportunity to kill again,” said Sullenger.

Other incidents Operation Rescue has recorded relating to Carhart include the 2005 third-trimester abortion death of Christin Gilbert in Kansas, unsafe abortion practices reported by former Carhart employees in Nebraska, and the falsifying of information to gain licensure in Maryland.

“The tragic death of Mrs. Morbelli from a botched 33-week abortion may be the catalyst that will finally bring Carhart to justice. It’s too bad that a woman had to die before authorities would sit up and take notice,” Sullenger said.
