New footage by an undercover investigative group shows a prominent late-term abortionist joking about the abortion procedure and telling women not to seek emergency care if something were to go wrong.
"Dr. (LeRoy) Carhart's testimony is shocking and sickening," said Lila Rose, president of Live Action, the organization that conducted the undercover investigation.
In a statement released with the video, Rose criticized Carhart's comparison of a dead infant within a mother's womb to "putting meat in a crock pot," as well as references to the tools he uses to complete abortions as a "pickaxe" and "drill bit."
She also stated that "he outright lies when he claims that his patient, Jennifer Morbelli, died of complications in her pregnancy rather than from his abortion."
