They Buried Jennifer Morbelli Today

Posted on | February 13, 2013 | 19 Comments

It’s Ash Wednesday, and a 29-year-old kindergarten teacher was laid to rest in Westchester County, N.Y. Her story is now gaining international attention, but the New York Times and the national TV networks can’t be bothered to report the death of a woman who died after a late-term abortion by Dr. LeRoy Carhart. So the story got covered by Viral Read:

A 10 AM service was held this morning at New York’s Holy Name of Jesus Church for 29 year-old Kindergarten teacher Jennifer McKenna Morbelli. ViralRead was on the scene.
Morbelli died Thursday at Shady Grove Hospital in suburban Montgomery County, Md., after undergoing a late-term abortion performed by Dr. LeRoy Carhart at the Germantown Reproductive Health clinic. Pro-life organizations including Operation Rescue have reported that Morbelli arrived at the clinic late Sunday, Feb. 3, and returned to the clinic for the next three days, including a nine-hour visit on Wednesday, Feb. 6. Morbelli was reportedly rushed to the hospital early Thursday morning and died hours later after suffering “massive internal bleeding,” Operation Rescue reported.
In a humble eulogy, Morbelli’s sister Kristin remembered how wonderful her sister was; how she always was ‘sticking up for her’ in ways no one else would. ViralRead’s New York City based correspondent reported that in the view of her family, Morbelli had accomplished more in 29 years than most do in a lifetime. In her mother’s stead, Kristin read a letter from her mother and father to Morbelli, a feat incomprehensible to anyone who has never laid a loved one to rest. Roughly 150 mourners were present for the services.
The priest who presided over the services delivered a consoling homily in which he remembered his favorite childhood nursery rhyme, Humpty Dumpty. He stated that much like Humpty Dumpty, God will put both Jennifer and her unborn child, Madison Leigh, back together again. . . .

    Stacy: Do we know if Madison Leigh was (1) given a funeral and (2) if she was buried with her Mother?

  • ThomasD

    Carhart release the body?

    Not a chance.

  • Becca Lower

    Read the story first. The woman wasn’t under the care of Carhart at the time she died, but at a hospital.

  • sablegsd

    Don’t you mean body parts?

  • CS

    This funeral should have been private.

  • Hank

    No, it’s none of our damn business.

    Damnation is a tricky thing

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    I hope they both rest in peace. I pray for them both and their family. I am sorry this happened.

  • Bob Belvedere

    If I were Hank, at this point I’d comment: It’s none of your damn business.

  • Bob Belvedere

    But, thank the Good Lord, I’m not Hank.

    So, the Church buried the mother with full rites while the Maryland AG is determining if dumping the baby out in the trash constitutes illegal dumping.

    How divine.

    I just don’t understand why she went to him. I find it very hard to believe that her gynecologist recommended this. The baby, supposedly, had anomalies. What if the test was wrong? I feel bad, but I also feel angry that anyone would do this.

    The pressure to terminate is unbelievable. I wouldn’t have believed it myself, if I hadn’t experienced it firsthand. I had my daughter, and she is handicapped. We deal with it. In this type of situation, there is little support for carrying to term in many medical offices. I can only imagine that they don’t want the liability. There is also a great bias against the physically, and even more so the intellectually, disabled. I think this is the very reason that late term abortion continues.

    You are very special parents indeed. I read somewhere that when Tebow’s mother was carrying him. there were serious complications and she was advised to have an abortion.
