Late-term abortionist offers parents the chance to cuddle with dead babies before disposal
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
Spiritual and ceremonial accommodations
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.
