Women Sue Abortionist Whose Abortions Left them Sterile

Infamous late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart now faces two malpractice lawsuits after leaving two women sterile during abortions at his Maryland facility last year. The two women—whose abortions occurred only nine days apart—were left sterile from the severe physical trauma to their bodies.

The first of the two incidents involved Ashley Norris, whose abortion occurred on May 12, 2020. The facility attempted a "dilation and evacuation" abortion procedure. Laminaria was inserted into Norris's cervix on May 11, but this did not cause as much dilation as expected. The facility attempted to complete the abortion anyway.

Norris temporarily awoke during the procedure and screamed in pain before being sedated once again. The abortionist perforated her uterus and colon, which caused severe bleeding. To save her life, a hospital gave her multiple blood transfusions, removed her uterus, and removed part of her colon.

The second incident happened on May 21, 2020, only nine days later. Haimanot Aragaw and her husband traveled to the Maryland late-term abortion facility after learning that their child had Down syndrome. The baby had developed to the 23rd week of gestation. Aragaw similarly had laminaria inserted into her cervix to dilate her cervix, as is common practice before "dilation and evacuation" abortions.

Instead, however, the facility attempted a suction abortion. Those generally occur long before the 23 weeks gestation, as the unborn child must be small enough to fit through a suction catheter. Because of this, Aragaw began bleeding severely and was transferred to a hospital. Surgeons found a large hole in her uterus and fetal body parts shoved into her abdominal cavity. Her appendix received a "traumatic injury," and the hospital gave her four units of blood to save her life. Aragaw's uterus was completely removed when the hospital saved her life.
