BETHESDA, Maryland, August 29, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – A late-term abortionist is offering women an opportunity to hold their babies “after delivery” or take a picture home as a “remembrance” after ending their unborn child’s life. 

These are just a few options suggested in a brochure now being provided by notorious late-term abortionist Dr. LeRoy Carhart, found on his website by Dr. Pat Castle of the pro-life group LIFE Runners.  

The brochure, which seeks to alleviate consciences and allay the fears of women considering having a second- or third-trimester abortion, declares that the clinic has been  “Caring for women with Kindness, Courtesy, Justice, Love & Respect for over 45 years.”  

“Many patients request a remembrance of their baby to take home with them,” according to the flyer.  

“Once the process of healing has begun, you may want to consider a token of the precious time with you and your baby had together,” it continues, before offering several post-abortion services available via the Carhart staff:  

  •  Viewing your baby after the delivery

  •  Holding your baby after the delivery

  •  Photographs of your baby

  •  Cremation services referral

  •  Funeral arrangements referral

  •  Footprints

  •  Spiritual and ceremonial accommodations

  •  Remembrance certificate

That Carhart acknowledges via this pamphlet that a “baby” is involved in abortion is consisent with his attitude in a recent interview he gave to the BBC.

“I think that it is a baby, and I use (the word) with patients,” Carhart said.

“And you don’t have a problem … with … killing a baby?” the stunned BBC reporter asked.

“I have no problem if it’s in the mother’s uterus,” he replied.

Given that choosing either cremation or funeral arrangements would be a significant acknowledgement of the humanity of an aborted child, LifeSiteNews reached out to Dr. Carhart’s office to find out what percentage of women who undergo late-term abortions select one of those options, but had received no response by the time of publication.
