Cheryl Sullenger is the Senior Policy Advisor for Operation Rescue.
Jim opened this Crosstalk by explaining the following: If a Kindergarten teacher were killed by a gunman it would be the top story on news outlets across America. Night after night the networks would be doing follow-up stories, the print media would be involved and certain congressional offices would be putting out press releases. The President might even get involved as he addresses the nation about another senseless killing, probably telling us why we need tougher gun control laws.
What if the killing occurred, not because of a gunman, but because she was the victim of a botched abortion?
This Crosstalk describes the circumstances that led to the February 7th death of 29 year old Jennifer McKenna Morbelli, a Kindergarten teacher from New Rochelle, New York, who is alleged to have died due to internal bleeding after having an abortion. No massive media coverage, no congressional press releases and no comments from President Obama. The only thing the public is hearing on this matter from the major media is silence.
Cheryl reported that Jennifer went to Germantown, Maryland, to obtain an abortion during the 33rd week of her pregnancy as she was told by one of her doctors that her baby had some abnormalities. This was a desired pregnancy; nonetheless she was encouraged to see LeRoy Carhart who would be performing the abortion.
On the last day of the multi-day process she delivered her baby but developed complications that led to her death in spite of her being admitted to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital. Carhart, in the meantime, had left town.
Also discussed was the connection between Carhart and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, illegal dumping practices, as well as details surrounding the death of Tonya Reaves who died last July of abortion related complications.
