WASHINGTON, June 12, 2016 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Pro-life activists will stage a demonstration and prayer vigil as late-term abortionist, Leroy Carhart, gives a deposition at the U. S. Capitol Building on Monday, June 13, 2016.
Carhart will be giving a deposition before the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives investigating the sale of fetal body parts.
The pro-life activists will be gathering Monday, June 13, at 11:00 A.M. on the southeast portion of the lawn at the U. S. Capitol Building.
The House will be investigating the sale of fetal body parts by Leroy Carhart as well as other aspects of his practice which could include the birth of "live" children from his late-term abortion practice.
The failure of Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party to address the issue of late-term abortion and the sale of baby body parts will be a major issue in the upcoming national elections this November.
Leroy Carhart has sent 6 women to the hospital in a 4 month period and 9 altogether, as well as taking the life of a 29-year-old teacher, from late-term abortions he performed since his practice began in Germantown, Maryland.
Chairwoman Marsha Blackburn, a leading pro-life Congresswoman, said she was disturbed to learn how many women Carhart's abortion facility appears to have injured in the past few months. "We have an obligation to protect the most vulnerable at all stages of life," Blackburn said. "Reports regarding the Germantown clinic are deeply troubling, both for the sake of babies whose lives are ended so close to--and possibly even after--birth and for the sake of the women who have been rushed from that clinic to the hospital with increasing frequency."
Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Director of the Washington, D.C. based Christian Defense Coalition adds,
"We are gathering on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol to pray for the House Select Panel as well as stand against the brutal and barbaric practices of late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart. We cannot be silent while he continually sends women to the hospital and takes the lives of viable innocent children.
"Our hope is that the House Select Panel will uncover the truth of Carhart's corrupt practice as well as exposing the extremist pro-abortion/anti-women agenda of Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party leading up the national elections this November. It is clear that Americans are growing uncomfortable with abortion on demand, the sale of baby parts for profit and the brutal and unsafe practices of Leroy Carhart performing abortions on women who are 7 and 8 months pregnant."
