Yahoo Parenting writer Rachel Bertsche asks, “‘What Kind of Mother Is 8 Months Pregnant and Wants an Abortion?

Rachel Bertsche late term abortion Warren Hern Colorado

The question is soon answered as Bertsche recounts the story of a woman named Kate, who aborted her baby, she would later name Rose at 36 weeks because of a “brain malformation“.

Kate recounts the day she confirmed the baby’s condition:

    “It was a morning appointment, and at the end of that day we met with the neurologist, who told us that our baby had Dandy-Walker malformation, the most severe presentation of the syndrome. It basically meant there were holes in her brain. She also had agenesis of the corpus callosum, which meant the bridge between the two hemispheres of her brain didn’t grow. So we had two malformations, each of which had a wide range of outcomes, but, combined, had a horrible prognosis. The doctor said, “We expect your baby to have moderate to severe mental retardation; she’s going to have moderate to severe physical disability; she is probably never going to walk or talk; she will possibly never be able to lift her head; she is going to have seizures all of the time.”

She then decides to have an abortion and writes:

    It was a four-day procedure, and I had to have it done by Friday, when I would be 36 weeks pregnant. There is no doctor in the country who performs abortions after 36 weeks.”

25K abortion

Then she added, “You have to show up with $25,000.”

WOW – $25,000 to kill a human child?

Kate continued:

    “So I called the Boulder Abortion Clinic in Colorado. We scheduled everything we needed to… It was a very, very difficult day. Euthanizing the baby is, obviously, a very hard thing to do. After the injection, he asked how I was feeling, and I just said, “I feel so sad. I’m going to miss her.

The Boulder Abortion Clinic is operated by late term abortion doctor Warren Hern shown proudly on his website image above.

Here Kate describes the counseling and how she will euthanize her child, a term society uses to destroy animals:

    “The whole first day was counseling and testing to make sure it was safe to do the procedure. They want to make sure you completely understand what is going to happen and that no one is pressuring you into the decision. At the end of the day, I signed all the paperwork, and the doctor injected the baby with a drug that, over a few hours, slowed her heart to still. It was a very, very difficult day. Euthanizing the baby is, obviously, a very hard thing to do. After the injection, he asked how I was feeling, and I just said, “I feel so sad. I’m going to miss her.”

Excerpts of Kate’s story below talk about the hours her unborn 36 week baby held onto life and the moment Kate confirmed that the hired assassin she paid had done his job :

    “My husband and I went back to the hotel and I lay down until she stopped moving. I could tell when she was gone. It feels very different. The second and third days were short appointments, so we took a nice drive through the Rockies to pass the time. Then on the fourth day, they induced my labor. I got Pitocin, and it was actually a very natural birth. It was quite healing for me. I couldn’t do anything for this baby — I couldn’t fix her brain or make her well, but I could deliver her from my body. I chose to view her, so they cleaned her up and brought her in and she looked a lot like my older daughter. She was beautiful and she was whole. I got her footprints and had her cremated and they sent us her ashes in the mail a few days later. We wanted to name her after a flower, so we called her Rose.

    “Ten days after we had that 35-week ultrasound, she was gone.

    “Late in my pregnancy, my older daughter would say, “Mama do you have a baby in your belly?” and I would say, “Yes honey! Want to give her a kiss?” After I got home, I knew she would ask, so I waited for that moment. When it came, my daughter put her hand on my stomach and said it: “Mama, do you have a baby in your belly?” And I said, “No, honey. Baby died. Baby’s all gone.”

    “I told people that the baby died and that we induced a stillbirth. I didn’t tell them I went to Colorado. I didn’t tell them the baby died because we gave her an injection.”

Such a sick and twisted story it makes me sick to my stomach to read how a mother would execute her own daughter because she was “not normal” in her eyes!

Teleflora ad celebrating Mother’s Day has pro-life message

A Teleflora ad on youtube which emphasizes the importance of mothers has a beautiful pro-life message.

The ad is emotional and is created to appear as a true story.

In the video a son sends his mother a video message filled with accolades of all the sacrifices his mother made for him.

I didn’t know how much you sacrificed until I was an adult,” the adult son says.

At college, I learned that you had a dream to become a professional athlete and then you got pregnant with me and you had to choose. You knew you couldn’t do both and you gave it up to raise me. To raise me the best way you knew how,” he says.

Responding to AHA’s claim pro-lifers focus on “abortion hurts women”

Posted in AHA, Pro-life History with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2015 by saynsumthn

This past weekend a debate between pro-life advocate Gregg Cunningham vs. Abolish Human Abortion advocate T. Russell Hunter took place in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

11164806_881842688548413_8953565359761892780_n

____________________________

The purpose was for each one to defend their view on abortion strategy: Incrementalism vs. Immediatism.

I am not going to address the entire debate in this blog post.

For those interested, pro-life blogger, Jill Stanek has analyzed the debate in a series of blog posts here which I recommend.

The purpose of this blog post is to address two statements made by Hunter.

Gregg Russell prolife vs AHA abortion Debate

During the debate, Hunter makes claims that pro-life strategy of working towards complete abolition of abortion and accepting gradual or incremental methods to save every baby possible along the way is sin.

Then Hunter implies that pro-life people do not call the sinner to repent for abortion. This is one of the statement’s I wish to address here.

Hunter says, “You notice the difference between an immediatist and an incrementalist, in that an immediatists says abortion is sin turn to God and goes out daily and to that work.” (Note: The last three words of Hunter’s statement are hard to make out from the audio, but I think I caught them correctly, please notify me if I am incorrect.)

TR Debate AHA

Hunter ran through his points so quickly that I believe that they are worth reviewing. Let’s pause there for a moment and analyze what Hunter is implying.

The comments begin at 58:29 of the debate video – here if you want to hear them.

First the statement, “an immediatists says abortion is sin turn to God” is intentionally designed to imply that anyone who claims the name “pro-life” and supports “incremental” strategies does not believe that abortion is sin or proclaim that society needs to turn to God.

This is an utterly ignorant and rather insulting statement.

The pro-life movement is made up of a large number of Bible believing Christian people. I would be in that group.

I understand the ignorance of a person who only recently joined the fight to end abortion while claiming to be a Christian for many years. But, just because Hunter and many of his followers have decided to responded to the Biblical mandate to “rescue those being led to the slaughter” does not mean history on this movement began with them.

As much as Hunter would like to re-write the history of the pro-life movement he did not live it as many many pro-lifers did and can now testify as first hand witnesses.

But to the point at hand, there is ample evidence past and present that the call to repentance was and is given within the pro-life community.

This 2001 letter to the editor is just one example:

US Repent 2001 abortion

_______________________________________________

The 1980’s rescues were also public calls for not only the church to repent from abortion apathy, but also for society to do the same. No AHA meme, statement, or fancy design can erase that history.

225488_174509399274400_7414355_n

___________________________________

Moving on…

The second part of Hunter’s statement which I’d like to address is as follows:

    Incrementalists say things like abortion hurts women. It does. But the focus is on, it hurts women not abortion kills babies, even though they recognize that abortion kills babies.”

Again- that is a preposterous statement.

Abortion Hurts Women Debate

The very images collected by the pro-life community, which Hunter now uses in all his effective social media memes, is proof that the focus is on the fact that abortion kills babies.

In addition, I have also documented that pure legislation to defend the preborn and outlaw all abortions was put forth via Human Life Amendments during the early days. That documentation can be found here.

Having said that, there is nothing wrong with saying that abortion hurts women. Hunter, for all his protesting, admits it in fact does. Is not truth- truth?

I will give Hunter the benefit of the doubt on this topic because again, the AHA leader chose to get into this fierce fight after abortion had been legal for a number of years, so he is rather ignorant of historical battles, ideas, and lies that the pro-life community has had to dismantle for the past 42 years.

Those who are new to the abortion battle may not realize that the abortion lobby made major inroads by painting illegal abortion as “unsafe” causing women to die.

It is simple logic to counter the lie that helped legalize abortion with the truth, which is that women still die from abortion and legalization does not necessarily make abortions safe.

Keep abortion safe and legal

The lies:

NARAL Pin

    Millions of women died from illegal abortions.

    If you make abortions illegal, women will die.

Case in point, during the debate to liberalize abortion in New York, the issue of unsafe abortions swayed one representative to change his vote on the floor, opening the door to abortion on demand in that state.

NY Constance Cook

Assemblywoman Constance E. Cook stood to the floor during that 1970 debate to push the lie of unsafe abortion, stating, “I submit that we have abortion on demand in the state of New York right now. Any woman that wants an abortion can get one–if she has $25, she has it done here, under the most abominable circumstances,” and that prohibition only drives abortion underground.”

This clip from the film “Choice at Risk” gives a historical glimpse :

Repealing Abortion Laws (4:18) from Dorothy Fadiman on Vimeo.

The deciding vote was cast by Democrat Assemblyman, George Michaels, who told the LA Times that for years he had been told by local party leaders not to vote for the repeal of the abortion ban, and he pledged not to. For two years he had followed the party line.

ASSY George Michaels cast vote to legalize abortion

    I would vote no, hoping the bill would pass,” he said. “I was not doing the right thing.”

    In April, 1970, the night before he left for Albany, Michaels spent an evening with his daughter-in-law, Sarah.

    Sarah asked him what would happen when the abortion bill came up for a vote again. There was a chance it would pass, he told her.

    What if it doesn’t?” she asked.

    Maybe next year,” he said.

    Michaels says he has never been able to forget what his son’s young wife told him next:

    In the meantime, thousands of women will be mutilated and die because of that stupid Legislature.

    Boy, that rocked me,” Michaels says. “That rocked me.”

The National Abortion Rights Action League, NARAL, also lied about women dying from illegal abortions. One of their early founders, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who later repented of his pro-abortion actions and views, described what they did early on:

Bernard Nathanson

    “We persuaded the media that the cause of permissive abortion was a liberal, enlightened, sophisticated one,” recalls the movement’s co-founder. “Knowing that if a true poll were taken, we would be soundly defeated, we simply fabricated the results of fictional polls. We announced to the media that we had taken polls and that 60 percent of Americans were in favor of permissive abortion. This is the tactic of the self-fulfilling lie. Few people care to be in the minority. We aroused enough sympathy to sell our program of permissive abortion by fabricating the number of illegal abortions done annually in the U.S. The actual figure was approaching 100,000, but the figure we gave to the media repeatedly was 1,000,000.”

McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Robert P. George breaks it down further when he writes this about the NARAL founder:

    Nathanson and his friends lied—relentlessly and spectacularly—about the number of women who died each year from illegal abortions. Their pitch to voters, lawmakers, and judges was that women are going to seek abortion in roughly equal numbers whether it is lawful or not. The only effect of outlawing it, they claimed, is to limit pregnant women to unqualified and often uncaring practitioners, “back alley butchers.” So, Nathanson and others insisted, laws against abortion are worse than futile: they do not save fetal lives; they only cost women’s lives.

abortion-rally-1970s

For clarification, stats show that, in the year prior to Roe, the CDC disputed the lie that thousands of women died from illegal abortion as shown in this table from their surveillance report on abortion.

cdc-illegal-abortion-deaths

So, to summarize, just because Hunter says that the pro-life movement does not focus on “abortion kills babies” does not make it so.

When the pro-life community documents that abortion is not safe for women it does not automatically mean they do not focus on the fact that abortion kills babies. For many of us, we are able to articulate multiple facts.

In addition, because AHA leaders claim that pro-lifers do not call abortion sin, does not make the claim true either as I stated above.

However, in my personal study of scripture, I do not see every effort to dialogue or convey truth being preceded by the command “repent.”

King Solomon, himself was conflicted when he was forced to determine who the mother of a baby brought before him was. He did not tell the two women squabbling to repent of their actions. Instead the wise King appealed to the heart of the true mother:

The NIV version of the events in I Kings is detailed below:

    The king said, “This one says, ‘My son is alive and your son is dead,’ while that one says, ‘No! Your son is dead and mine is alive.’”

    Then the king said, “Bring me a sword.” So they brought a sword for the king. 25 He then gave an order: “Cut the living child in two and give half to one and half to the other.”

    The woman whose son was alive was deeply moved out of love for her son and said to the king, “Please, my lord, give her the living baby! Don’t kill him!”

    But the other said, “Neither I nor you shall have him. Cut him in two!”

    Then the king gave his ruling: “Give the living baby to the first woman. Do not kill him; she is his mother.”

In the story above, the true mother, the one who cared for and loved the baby, was willing to compromise to save her child’s life.

Think about that for a while, as you ponder the debate !

Abortion doc sells clinic interests to director with sexual abuse history

Posted in Abortion and Sexual Assault, Abortion clinic, Abortionist, Abortionist loses medical license, Abortionist Sexual, Brigham, National Abortion Federation with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2015 by saynsumthn

Long time abortionist Steven Brigham has sold his abortion clinic interests, American Women’s Services, to another abortion doctor with a history of sexual abuse, according to a Pennsylvania news outlet.

An article in Philly.com entitled, “Discredited abortion doctor sparks fresh outrage with clinic sale,”reads:

Steven-Chase-Brigham

    Late last year, activists on both sides of the abortion divide cheered when New Jersey regulators permanently yanked the medical license of Steven Brigham, 58, an abortion doctor they had been sounding alarms about for decades.

    The action meant Brigham – whose macabre practices were found to endanger and deceive patients – was required to divest his ownership in eight clinics in New Jersey, which made up the bulk of his multistate abortion business, advertised as American Women’s Services.

    But Brigham’s critics are not cheering the latest development: Brigham sold his interests to his medical director, Vikram Kaji, whose medical license was suspended in New Jersey and Pennsylvania in the mid-1990s for sexually abusing patients and wrongly prescribing controlled substances.

_____________________________________

kaji

Kaji’s sexual abuse was documented by the website abortiondocs.com :

    Dr. Vikram Kaji has a long history of sexually abusing his patients. Dr. Kaji was professionally disciplined by the State of New Jersey on November 1, 1993, and given a 12-month suspension for sexually abusing three patients and indiscriminately prescribing controlled dangerous substances. He was disciplined for having sex with one patient in his office, and for performing ‘‘improper’’ rectal and breast exams on two other patients. According to a consent order, Dr. Kaji knew the woman he had sex with suffered from severe depression, had been sexually abused as a child, and had once been hospitalized for psychiatric problems. He was also disciplined by the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency on February 22, 1994, and made to surrender his controlled substance license. He was also disciplined by the State of Pennsylvania on December 23, 1994, and his license was suspended for 36 months.

From the New York Medical Board:

Kaji medical board

Philly.com reported the sexual abuse this way at the time:

    According to the order, Kaji, 59, has admitted to having unprotected sexual intercourse with a woman in the birthing room of his clinic while staff was in the office and the door unlocked. The order also says Kaji has denied conducting improper examinations and improperly prescribing drugs.

Vikram Kaji sexual abuse

In 2013, the New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners found that Kaji, 79, “had failed to adequately fulfill his responsibilities as medical director,” a job that includes overseeing controlled substances. Kaji admitted he had suffered a stroke that had affected his memory and vision, and was ordered to undergo “neuropsychological evaluation,” according to public records, reports the Philly.com.

I sometimes get too friendly, but nothing is meant by it in my mind, for sure,” Kaji said at the time. “The problem is I don’t realize how the other person is taking it.”

Of course at the time this all happened and the state suspended his medical license, Kaji vowed that he was done practicing medicine – yet- he has managed to remain in the abortion industry as an active physician – go figure.

The National Abortion Federation which tries to claim that they distance themselves from Brigham and Kaji had this to say:

I am not surprised at Brigham,” said Vicki Saporta, president and CEO of the National Abortion Federation. “This is the type of deceptive activity we’ve come to expect from him. But I am surprised the state would accept this as being in compliance with their [divestiture] order, since Kaji is clearly unable and unsuitable to be running abortion clinics in New Jersey. Brigham is clearly trying to … continue to maintain control over the clinics.”

However, Brigham once bragged about attending NAF events with no outrage from the abortion rights group:

Brigham and NAF

NAF pretends that Brigham and Kaji are rare exceptions, I maintain they are not and document general abuse including sexual abuse by the abortion industry here.

A rival abortion clinic weighed in as well:

Jennifer Boulanger, communications director at the Cherry Hill Women’s Center, sent this e-mail response to Philly.com by e-mail, “Although we have come to expect that Steven Brigham would allow someone so grossly unqualified to manage patient care, we are hopeful that New Jersey regulators will use the power granted to them to disallow this ownership transfer.”

Saporta, the National Abortion Federation leader, which defends abortion docs nationwide told the media outlet, “People who read about this should be alarmed. Enough, enough, enough with these people.”

Enough IS enough!

In response, Operation Rescue has submitted a letter of complaint to Deputy Attorney General Jeri Warhaftig urging her office to disallow the alleged transfer of Steven Chase Brigham’s New Jersey abortion businesses to Vikram Kaji.

The transfer of Brigham’s abortion clinics to Kaji is completely offensive and unacceptable. It is shocking that Kaji is even allowed to practice medicine, given his background of sex abuse, drug violations, and negligence,” said Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Policy Advisor for Operation Rescue, who wrote the complaint. “We are asking for the State to disallow the transfer of Brigham’s abortion businesses to Kaji, and order them to close immediately.”

Perhaps Saporta will join groups like Operation Rescue and others in denouncing all the abortionists that kill, injure,rape or abuse their patients instead of having a faux anger when they are held to account by the media, but I seriously doubt that will hapen.

Currently, American Women’s Services’ website advertises 16 clinics in New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.

Baby killing Planned Parenthood asks where RTL movement is “for babies who have left womb”

Posted in Planned Parenthood CEO, Planned Parenthood six digit salary, Pro-choice Spin, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2015 by saynsumthn

I recently came across a ridiculous tweet from Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio.

Planned Parenthood RTL babies left womb

It read, “Where is the right to life movement for the babies that have left the womb?!”

I never understand these kind of messages or questions especially from the killer of babies.

To me, if Planned Parenthood were to be honest, they could have tweeted this way, “Where is the right to life movement for the babies we fail to murder?”

But to the larger point of accusing pro-life people of not caring for born babies I always ask those posing this question, do you know every pro-life person?

I happen to know quite a few and have found them to be among the most generous people you could meet.

Many volunteer hours of their week to help single moms, babies, the sick, elderly, disabled, etc.

They run and fund soup kitchens, hospitals, pregnancy centers, schools, medical centers, work as volunteers for various community organizations, not to mention their donations to churches which also help the poor and downtrodden.

As a pro-lifer for over 30 years I have personally taken in pregnant girls, supported them, helped single moms pay for the schooling of their children, babysat, gave car rides, worked in my community in various ways, supported many organizations who also help the poor, visited prisons, gave emotional support to the elderly and those with emotional and physical disabilities, fed the homeless, and on and on and on.

Generally, when an abortion advocate makes this claim to me in person, I immediately challenge them to open their check book register and show me all the ways they contribute to the poor. I challenge them to show me their check register and I will show them mine. This is not a bragging point, it is just that the ridiculous claim that pro-lifers don’t care about born people must be refuted.

I find most pro-lifers to be simple and honest people who would never wear their charitable activities on their sleeve. For that, they get slandered and falsely accused.

Planned Parenthood of all groups knows this accusation is a bold faced lie.

In 2013 alone, Planned Parenthood reported performing 327,653 abortions.

The organization gets half a billion in federal tax revenues annually which they use to line the pockets of their directors and employees with six digit salaries.

Case in point, Stephanie F. Kight is the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio and its advocacy arm, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio who posted the tweet that inspired this blog post.

If you look at the 2012 990 for Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio alone, Kight earned $229,500.

I don’t know about you – but a lot of “born people” could get help with that kind of money.

STephanie K Knight PP OH 2

In reading their slanderous tweet it reminds me that if a group will lie to be allowed to legally murder babies for profit – they will lie about anything!

But, just in case Planned Parenthood reads this blog post, perhaps they will learn the most important point and that is, for a person to need help outside the womb they first need to make it out of the womb and not aborted.
