Court case establishes abortionists' 'protected status'

judge banging gavelPro-lifers are dismayed that a well-known late-term abortionist has claimed victory in a legal case brought against him.

Warren Hearn performed an abortion on a Nebraska woman when she was 25 weeks pregnant. More than a year later, her doctors discovered half the baby's skull was still lodged in her uterus, which required a complete hysterectomy. The patient, identified only as Jennifer B. for privacy concerns, sued; because the abortionist failed to account for all of the baby's body parts, she will never be able to bear children.

Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue tells OneNewsNow the information led to an obvious conclusion.

Sullenger, Cheryl"We saw a lot of the reports, a lot of the court documents that had been submitted, a lot of the expert testimony that had been submitted in writing, and [we don't understand] how someone could come to the conclusion that leaving a baby's skull inside a woman's uterus was not the cause of their problem," she reports.

Jennifer claimed negligence, but the jury ruled in Hearn's favor.

"Warren Hearn is 79 years old. He admits that he has had a number of incidents where he's left bone fragments inside of women," Sullenger relays.

So she suggests there are two lessons to be learned from the trial:

"That abortion is not safe, and that when things go wrong during an abortion, there's no guarantee the abortionist will ever be held accountable for that," the pro-lifer laments. "So abortionists seem to have a protected status, especially in the courts."

But Operation Rescue will continue to expose the horrors of abortion as well as shabby abortionists who operate under the radar and sometimes in violation of state and federal law.
