Late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart, who has a history of injuring and killing women, may be closing his facility in Nebraska and relocating to Colorado, according to a report from pro-life watchdog group Operation Rescue.

Earlier this year, it was discovered that Carhart was under investigation by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services for committing a severely botched abortion in which a 35-year-old woman allegedly suffered internal hemorrhaging, coded at least once, and required surgery to save her life. A witness reported the woman needed such life-saving efforts because the staff at Carhart’s facility “let her lie there too long” before finally calling 911.

Clinics for Abortion and Reproductive Excellence (C.A.R.E.), which Carhart serves as the executive director of, is opening a new facility in Pueblo, Colorado, where abortion laws are significantly more lenient than in Nebraska. C.A.R.E. is currently fundraising to finish the process of opening the facility.

Nebraska protects preborn children from abortion after 20 weeks gestation, and Bellevue, the city where Carhart operates, has an active petition circulating to become a pro-life sanctuary city. Colorado allows unlimited abortion on demand.

Operation Rescue reported that moving trucks have been seen at Carhart’s Bellevue abortion business, and it has stopped scheduling surgical abortions. “He is now in his 80s, but he can’t seem to stop the killing,” said Operation Rescue president Troy Newman.

Carhart has a long history of injuring women and has killed at least two patients: Christin Gilbert and Jennifer Morbelli. Staffers have also reported Carhart’s unprofessional conduct and unsafe practices like illegally dumping biohazardous waste, keeping the facility in unsanitary condition, falling asleep during abortion procedures, and leaving in the middle of a procedure to throw rocks at the window from outside. In recent years, the number of botched abortions at Carhart’s hands has skyrocketed; in one month, he injured two women so badly that the hospital staff who saved their lives sent an e-mail acknowledging the trauma that the hospital workers experienced during the surgeries to repair the women’s bodies.
