BALTIMORE, Maryland., Dec. 15, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - LeRoy Carhart is perhaps the best known abortionist in the nation, yet when he applied for a license to practice medicine in Maryland in September, he appears to have concealed the true nature of his risky late-term abortion practice.

Operation Rescue recently received a redacted copy of Carhart’s application for Maryland licensure, which was obtained through a Maryland Public Information Act request.

On page two of the application, Carhart lists his current position as Medical Director and Staff Physician of “Bellevue Health/Emergency Clinic, Inc.” located at 1002 West Mission Avenue in Bellevue, Nebraska. This is actually the address of his infamous abortion facility, better known as the Abortion and Contraception Clinic of Nebraska.

In addition, nowhere on Carhart’s application does he mention that he was an employee for over a decade of George Tiller’s now-closed Women’s Health Care Services. That omission, as well as the omission of other abortion clinics that Carhart has worked at in the past 20 years in eight states, helps to conceal the nature of Carhart’s late-term abortion business, says the pro-life group.

“Looking at his Maryland medical license application, there is no mention of abortion anywhere. One is lead to believe that Carhart is an emergency room physician and university professor,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

“When the most notorious abortionist in the world tries to cover up what he does for a living, you know he has something to hide.”

Operation Rescue has submitted to the Maryland Board of Physicians documentation on the death of Carhart patient Christin Gilbert during a 3rd-trimester abortion in 2005, and the numerous botched abortions with which Carhart was involved in Kansas. The complaint demands that the Board reconsider Carhart’s license.

Newman said that he and his group “intend to press the issue with the medical board and other authorities until women are safe from Carhart’s deceptive and exploitive abortion practices.”
