Unfettered abortion in America

“Kermit Gosnell and Douglas Karpen represent the result of forty years of unfettered abortion in America.  This is nothing new for you or me.  We’ve known this for decades.  It’s the hidden face of the abortion industry.  It’s the dirty secret they’ve kept from the American people from the start. Priests for Life is working in partnership with Life Dynamics and Operation Rescue to highlight the atrocities being committed in Karpen’s clinic and elsewhere. Priests for Life is going all out to team up with other pro-life groups to make sure Douglas Karpen is brought to trial and made to answer for the unspeakable crimes against humanity that he’s been committing in his abortion mill. Kermit Gosnell has become the “face” of abortion.  He personifies the ugly truth about abortion. Those who promote abortion know that.  They know how devastating he’s been to their self-made image.  They are doing all they can to convince people that what Kermit Gosnell did is a rare exception. But that’s a lie.  And the accusations against Douglas Karpen add to the evidence! Hundreds of abortion clinics operate just the way theirs do.” ” Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director Priests for Life

Texan Kills Babies Born Alive

New Web Site Exposes Douglas Karpen, Who Kills Babies Born Alive
A leading pro-life group has put together a web site to expose Douglas Karpen. Like Kermit Gosnell, this Texas-based abortion practitioner kills unborn children who are born alive in a gruesome abortion-infanticide process.

This week, LifeNews exposed Douglas Karpen — who, like the Philadelphia-based abortion practitioner, is also killing babies born alive after botched abortions. Unlike Gosnell, who killed babies by jamming medical scissors into their necks, at his Houston abortion clinic former employees of Karpen testify he goes one shocking step further, he kills the babies wit his bare hands by twisting their necks execution style. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/17/new-web-site-exposes-douglas-karpen-who-kills-babies-born-alive/

Yanked Out Parts of Living Baby Piece by Piece

VIDEO: Abortion “Doctor” Yanked Out Parts of Living Baby Piece by Piece
In a new expose video, a former abortion clinic worker describes the grisly details of working for one abortion practitioner who shows the atrocities at the Kermit Gosnell abortion clinic were not an exception.

During the interview the former abortion clinic employee says: “the fetus would come completely out and of course, the fetus would still be alive” and the abortion clinic employee added “I’m talking about the whole floor dirty. I’m talking about me drenched in blood.” http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/14/video-abortion-doctor-yanked-out-parts-of-living-baby-piece-by-pi/

Whistling Past The Graveyard

Mark Crutcher“While the pro-life movement claims that abortion takes the life of a living human being, nobody on earth knows that better than the people who work at abortion clinics.  The lofty rhetoric of “choice” may insulate those who work in the political and public relations arena, but the day-to-day reality for those who provide those “choices” is to deal with the corpses and parts of corpses they pull out of their customers’ bodies. During Gosnell’s trial, it became clear that organizations like Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Federation, and others within the pro-choice community were fully aware of what Gosnell was doing.  But they kept quiet because this was a rock they did not want the public looking under. What they knew, and wanted to keep hidden, was that everything being done at this abortion clinic was within the standard operating procedures for every other abortion clinic in the country. So they, and their lapdogs in the media, started whistling past the graveyard.”      Mark Crutcher, President of Life Dynamics

Three First-Degree Murder Charges

Kermit Gosnell Found Guilty on Three First-Degree Murder Charges
The jury in the murder trial of abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell returned a verdict and found him guilty on three of the four first-degree murder charges he faced. Gosnell was found guilty of killing Baby A, Baby C and Baby D and found not guilty of killing Baby E. He was also convicted on hundreds of lesser charges ranging from infanticide to running a corrupt organization. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/05/13/kermit-gosnell-jury-hung-on-two-counts-doesnt-say-which-ones/  *Baby E was estimated to be at least 23 weeks gestation and maybe more. After Baby E was delivered, teen Gosnell clinic employee Ashley Baldwin heard the baby cry and called Kareema Cross for help.

Naming the Gosnell babies

Fr Frank Pavone, National Director Priests for Life

“The trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell is about much more than the man himself. In a painful way, it brings America face to face with abortion, which, as the defense argued, is “bloody” and “real.” For those who have had abortions, it brings them again in touch with a pain that is never really far away, and it brings them in touch yet again with their need for healing. This is especially true when we see what the Gosnell case has confronted us with: bodies of babies in bags and cartons in the freezer, severed feet in jars, some 45 babies retrieved in a raid on the clinic and entrusted to the Philadelphia Medical Examiner. One of the key moments of that journey of healing after abortion is when the parents name their child. The moment is powerful and freeing. Up until then, the child was a victim of de-humanization. Before we can kill, we have to dehumanize. “This is not a child,” we lie to ourselves; or we say, “This is not a child for whom I am responsible right now.” In these or a thousand other ways, a veil of dehumanization covers the child; a chasm is introduced between that child’s humanity and our awareness of our need to respond to it with an unconditional acknowledgement and acceptance. But the time is not right, the burden too great, and so we keep any semblance of the child’s humanity as far away from our consciousness as we can. And that is where the power of the name comes in. But now it’s time, in our collective journey through this nightmare, to connect with these children more directly. It’s time to name the children. We have no evidence that anyone else has given them a name or was interested in giving them a name. In fact, these babies were brought to an abortion facility to be killed and then thrown away. The fact that their parents abandoned them does not give us permission to do so. “Though father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me,” Scripture tells us (Psalm 27:10). “I have called you by name, you are mine,” the Lord says (Isaiah 43:1). As Pope John Paul II wrote, “God … has entrusted the life of every individual to his or her fellow human beings, brothers and sisters” (Evangelium Vitae, 76). From the point of view, then, that we are one human family called into being by God, these children are also ours. And that’s why we can name them when nobody else has.” Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life. Read and listen to this column online at Priestsforlife.org/library/4620-naming-the-gosnell-babies

Aborted baby to “meat” in a “slow cooker”

Abortionist Leroy CarhartLive Action today released the fourth “Inhuman” undercover video, this time with the infamous “late-term” abortionist LeRoy Carhart. Live Action investigators twice went to Carhart at his Bellevue, Nebraska, clinic, once in December 2012, and the second time in March. One woman investigator was 22 weeks pregnant, the second 24 weeks pregnant. Carhart is shown responding to a Live Action investigator that during the lengthy abortion procedure she will be carrying a dead baby for three days. During that time the baby “gets soft and mushy,” Carhart says. In response to a further inquiry, Carhart says in the video,” So, it’s like putting meat in a Crock-Pot, okay.” A moment later he adds this detail: like meat “in a slow cooker.” By Dave Andrusko http://www.nationalrighttolifenews.org/news/2013/05/live-action-releases-undercover-video-of-abortionist-leroy-carhart-likens-aborted-baby-to-meat-in-a-slow-cooker/#.UYr3K-SG3e4

Post-aborted Women “Surrender the Secret” on Internet TV Show

surrenderthesweet2The right-to-life movement knows that abortion not only kills unborn babies, it harms women—physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Whether a woman is considering an abortion, or has had an abortion, we in this movement of love extend our love to her, opening our hearts and arms to her. A show available for viewing on the internet gives us a glimpse into the healing process as five women allow us to follow them through a bible study for abortion recovery. The show, “Surrender the Secret,” also the name of the bible study, aired on http://www.KnockTV.com.  The ten-episode series, now complete, followed Jill, Vanessa, Kelly, Courtney, and Jane as they share their abortion stories and accept the forgiveness of a loving heavenly Father. You can watch Episodes One through Ten at www.youtube.com/KnockTelevision. By Carol Tobias, National Right to Life President
