Doctor sees tiny living baby ‘swimming’ in amniotic sac after ectopic pregnancy

abortion, baby 8 weeks, pregnancy

In 1970, Fordham law professor Robert M. Byrn detailed his objections to abortion in a case published in the Notre Dame Law Review. Byrn, a criminal law specialist, gave explicit details of the abortion procedure in this article and also filed an unsuccessful challenge to New York’s state abortion law. Byrn wrote of the preborn baby, in part, saying, “The fetus at eight weeks has a pumping heart with fully deployed blood vessels and has all other internal organs. The face is completely formed, and the arms, legs, hands, feet, toes and fingers are partially formed. The fetus will react to tickling of the mouth or nose, and there is readable electrical activity coming from the brain.”

Byrn then shared some haunting statements from physician Paul E. Rockwell, M.D., Director of Anesthesiology at Leonard Hospital in Troy, New York, who said, “Photographs of the fetus around the eighth week present an unmistakable human baby with rather blunt features and extremities.  However, such pictures invariably have been taken after the death of the fetus following an abortion,” adding, “It is death which superimposes the bluntness of appearance.”

Rockwell went on to describe his experience seeing a child yet living after treating a woman for an ectopic pregnancy at two months:

Eleven years ago while giving an anesthetic for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy (at two months gestation) I was handed what I believe was the smallest living human being ever seen. The embryo sac was intact and transparent. Within the sac was a tiny (approx. 1 cm.) human male swimming extremely vigorously in the amniotic fluid, while attached to the wall by the umbilical cord. This tiny human was perfectly developed, with long, tapering fingers, feet and toes. It was almost transparent, as regards the skin, and the delicate arteries and veins were prominent to the ends of the fingers.

The baby was extremely alive and swam about the sac approximately one time per second, with a natural swimmer’s stroke. This tiny human did not look at all like the photos and drawings and models of “embryos” which I have seen, nor did it look like a few embryos I have been able to observe since then, obviously because this one was alive!

…When the sac was opened, the tiny human immediately lost its life and took on the appearance of what is accepted as the appearance of an embryo at this age.

It is my opinion that if the lawmakers and people realized that very vigorous life is present, it is possible that abortion would be found much more objectionable than euthanasia.

Rockwell went on to describe gruesome abortion procedures being used at that time, including the saline abortion (see Baby Choice) and hysterotomy abortion, as shown in this 1981 Hayes Publishing pro-life brochure (graphic image warning).

Live Action News has previously described gruesome experiments on living abortion survivors, dating back to the 1930s. University of Pittsburgh anatomist Davenport Hooker conducted research on children who survived surgical abortion by hysterotomy and, in 1952, he assembled his footage into a silent educational film called “Early Fetal Human Activity.” The film showed the muscle activity of six fetuses ranging from 8 1/2 to 14 weeks.” Video from that film can be viewed below (warning: Images may be disturbing to some)…

Byrn also quoted Dr. H. P. Dunn, of the Royal College of Surgeons and Royal College of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians regarding one of the abortion methods used:

“… to dilate the entrance to the womb, then insert a large forceps and drag out the baby and the afterbirth. This is not as easy as it sounds. The surgeon must work by touch alone. He gives a tug – a tiny arm comes away; then other fragments of the body. The head is always difficult; the skull gets crushed; the eyeballs protrude. All the time the bleeding is profuse. When the abortion has been completed,” writes Dr. Dunn.

“The problem of the disposal of the remains has to be faced by the nursing staff. Incineration is the favored method. So ends the life of another human being – thrown out with a mess of blood clots and dirty swabs, unwanted, unremembered.”

Byrn quoted Dunn on another abortion procedure:

“The woman has a general anesthetic, an abdominal incision, the womb is incised from top to bottom and the baby lifted out. It makes some weak movement of its arms and legs, and tries to breathe. Sometimes it manages a pathetic cry like a kitten; then after a few minutes it dies an asphyxial death and lies coldly in a stainless steel bowl.”

The third method is the most “scientific,” added Byrn, describing the horrific saline abortion method, which actually burns off the baby’s skin:

“A large needle,” Dr. Dunn tells us, “is inserted through the abdomen into the womb and a strong solution of salt or glucose is injected. The baby can be felt to make a few convulsive movements, and within a few minutes it dies. In about twenty-four hours labor starts and the already disintegrating baby is delivered.”

“Abortion is a brutal and violent procedure, which is fundamentally repugnant to the philosophy of medical practice,” Byrn stated.

Byrn later called the infamous Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide “the worst tradition of a tragic judicial aberration that periodically wounds American jurisprudence and, in the process, irreparably harms untold numbers of human beings.”

“Three generations of Americans have witnessed decisions by the United States Supreme Court which explicitly degrade fellow human beings to something less in law than “persons in the whole sense,” he said. “Are not three generations of error enough?”

Roe v. Wade violates science, which confirms preborn children are human beings

first trimester, pro-life

Some people, especially those in the pro-choice camp, believe that “personhood” and “being a member of the human species” are two different things. But are they? By creating this artificial divide, society can deem certain members of the human family “persons” while denying that title to others of that same family. During arguments in the Roe v. Wade case before the full U.S. Supreme Court in 1972, Texas Attorney General Robert C. Flowers argued for the state against abortion legalization. Flowers was asked by Justice Thurgood Marshall, “Is there any medical testimony of any kind that says that a fetus is a person at the time of inception?”

In response, Flowers submitted dissenting arguments made by Senior Judge Campbell in a 1971 Illinois abortion case, Doe v.s Scott, which Flowers said was “very similar to the case we have before us.”

In that case, Justice Campbell spoke against amending or repealing Illinois’ existing abortion statute. He wrote, “We, as did the Illinois Legislature, have before us the following undisputed facts relating to fetal life.” Campbell eloquently presented facts about the development of the preborn child, quoted in part below (emphasis added):

Seven weeks after conception the fertilized egg develops into a well proportioned small scale baby. It bears all of the familiar external features and all the internal organs of an adult human being. It has muscles; hands with fingers and thumbs; and the legs have recognizable knees, ankles and toes.

The brain is operative…. Brain waves have been noted at 43 days. The heart beats; the stomach produces digestive juices; the liver manufactures blood cells; and the kidneys begin to function by extracting uric acid from the blood.

In the third month it can kick its legs, turn its feet, curl and fan its toes, make a fist, move its thumb, bend its wrist, turn its head, and even open its mouth and swallow and drink the amniotic fluid that surrounds it. Thumb sucking has been noted at this age… with inhaling and exhaling respiratory movements.

In the twelfth week it can move its thumb, in opposition to its fingers. It swallows regularly. It has active reflexes. The facial expressions of a fetus in its third month are already similar to the facial expression of its parents….

In the third month finger nails appear; sexual differentiation is apparent in both internal and external organs….

From the twelfth to the sixteenth week the child grows to eight or ten inches in height and receives oxygen and food from its mother through the placental attachment. In the fifth month it gains two inches in height and ten ounces in weight…. It sleeps and wakes and may be awakened by external vibrations.

In the sixth month the fetus develops a strong muscular grip with its hands; starts to breathe regularly and can maintain a respiratory response for twenty-four hours if born prematurely…. A child has been known to survive between twenty to twenty-five weeks old

“Indeed, as medical science progresses in the field of detection, the date of potential viability moves continually closer to earlier stages of gestation,” Justice Campbell wrote.

He also quoted from Dr. Arnold Gesell, who wrote in his book, “The Embryology of Behavior”:

Our own repeated observation of a large group of fetal infants (an individual born and living at any time prior to forty weeks gestation) left us with no doubt that psychologically they were individuals. Just as no two looked alike, so no two behaved precisely alike. One was impassive when another was alert. Even among the youngest there were discernible differences in vividness, reactivity and responsiveness. These were genuine individual differences, already prophetic of the diversity which distinguishes the human family.

Today, a corporation is considered a “person” and yet the Supreme Court in Roe wrongly determined that a preborn child was not. This irony is reminiscent of the infamous Dred Scott case which ruled a Black man was not a full person.

READ: Harvard Law Journal concludes: The preborn child is a constitutional person

The Fourteenth Amendment, known for giving citizenship and equal rights under the law to former slaves and African Americans, should also apply to the preborn, as Live Action News contributor Kristi Burton Brown previously documented.

Fordham law professor Robert M. Byrn addressed this just prior to the Roe case, in an article published in 1970 in the Notre Dame Review:

From its original intent to safeguard Negroes against discrimination by Whites, the fourteenth amendment has evolved into a broad guarantee of equality both to artificial persons and to all natural persons irrespective of citizenship, sex or race. In an era of increased sensitivity to human rights, it would be the ultimate in irony if the corporation which manufactures the instruments used to abort the unborn human child was entitled, as an artificial person, to equal protection of the law, while the unborn child, who is in all respects qualitatively human, is deprived of that protection.

There is no doubt that the child in the womb is a human person deserving of constitutional protection.

7 facts the average American doesn’t know about legalized abortion

Posted in Abortion History, Abortion Vintage, Roe with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 24, 2016 by saynsumthn

As we enter another year of legalized abortion on demand, many Americans are unaware of many facts regarding the history of abortion in the United States. To correct some of these misnomers, we have listed seven facts that the average American does not know about legal abortion.

Keep abortion legal

1. Abortion was legal prior to 1973 in certain states

In 1967, Colorado became the first state in the US to legalize abortion. The bill was introduced by then Representative Richard D. Lamm. In 1968, Georgia legalized abortion. Previously, in 1966, Mississippi had legalized the procedure for cases of rape. Then during the debate to liberalize abortion in New York in 1970, 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. Which brings me to the next fact.

2. Few women died from abortion the year prior to it’s legalization:

cdc-illegal-abortion-deaths

Despite the repeated lie that thousands or millions of women died from illegal abortion, there was then as now no law requiring the deaths of women from abortion to be reported. Stats from the Center for Disease Control show that, the year prior to Roe (1972) 66 women were reportedly killed from abortion. Out of those 39 were illegal, 24 were from legal abortion and 2 were unknown. However, in the year abortion was legalized (1973), the CDC documents that more women died from legal abortion than from illegal abortions.

3. Roe in the Supreme Court case never had an abortion:

Norma McCorvey ABC News Screen

The 1973 abortion case was brought to the Supreme Court on the basis that Norma McCorvey, the Roe in the case was raped and needed an abortion. The fact is that she was never raped and never wanted an abortion. In fact, Norma is also now pro-life and is seeking to overturn the infamous decision.

4. The language for Roe was written years before the case was decided

In 1962 the American Law Institute (ALI), comprised of judges, lawyers, and law professors who suggest recommendations for revisions to state laws proposed liberal abortion language as part of the “model penal code.” As a result, between the years 1962 and 1973, nineteen states reformed their abortion laws and enacted all or part of the institute’s reform model. Hawaii, Alaska, New York, and Washington removed all limitations for performing an abortion. Portions of the language read very close to what the Justices eventually enacted and included the “exceptions” language that opened the door for abortion on demand:

“[a] licensed physician is justified in terminating a pregnancy if he believes there is a substantial risk
(1) that continuation of the pregnancy would gravely impair the physical and mental health of the mother or
(2) that the child would be born with grave physical or mental defect, or
(3) that the pregnancy resulted from rape, incest, or other felonious intercourse.”

5. Roe V. Wade allowed for unrestricted abortions up to viability (24 weeks) with states deciding thereafter (viability measures have now drastically improved)

According to Paul Pauker who summarized Roe for Live Action previously, in Roe the Supreme Court adopted a trimester framework for state regulation of abortion. The Court held: in the first trimester of pregnancy, states may not regulate abortion; in the second trimester, states may regulate abortion only in ways related to protecting the mother’s health; and in the third trimester, states may “regulate, and even proscribe, abortion except where necessary, in appropriate medical judgment, for the preservation of the life or health of the mother.”

6. Doe v. Bolton, the companion case to Roe, opened the door for abortion on demand by allowing the “health of the mother” exception” to be defined however the doctor chose.

Pauker states that the language that seemed to allow a third trimester ban on abortion was deceptive, because in Doe, the Court gave “health” such a broad definition that states have been prevented from successfully imposing bans on abortion, including late-term abortions.

Sandra Cano img22

Testimony from Sandra Cano the Former Doe of Doe v. Bolton, before the Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Senate Judiciary Committee June 23, 2005 showed that, like the Roe case, she never wanted an abortion:

“The Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court decision bears my name. I am Sandra Cano, the former ”Doe” of Doe v. Bolton. Doe v. Bolton is the companion case to Roe v. Wade. Using my name and life, Doe v. Bolton falsely created the health exception that led to abortion on demand and partial birth abortion. How it got there is still pretty much a mystery to me. I only sought legal assistance to get a divorce from my husband and to get my children from foster care. I was very vulnerable: poor and pregnant with my fourth child, but abortion never crossed my mind. Although it apparently was utmost in the mind of the attorney from whom I sought help.

7. Today, based on many lies, tragically abortions are legal in all stages of pregnancy

Late term abortion Daily Signal 2015

The U.S. is one of only seven developed countries in which late-term abortions after 20 weeks (five months) are allowed, according to a 2015 report from the Charlotte Lozier Institute. The above graphic published by the Daily Signal reveals just how many states allow abortions through all nine months of pregnancy.

Out-of-touch pro-abortion advocates “celebrate” abortion

Posted in Roe with tags , , , , , , , , on January 11, 2016 by saynsumthn

It is almost January 22, 1973 and we already see abortion “Celebrations” being organized with the same old rhetoric attracting the same old people. In fact, these celebrations by Planned Parenthood and abortion supporters are out-of-touch to a culture that is growing radically more pro-life every day. But, sadly, and yet predictably, it appears the promoters of all things abortion can’t skip one year without dancing over the bodies of dead preborn children.

Roe celebration 308210838444_7850300544994434250_n

Roe is the infamous Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion on demand in every week of pregnancy. In 2015, Planned Parenthood received criticism for “celebrating: abortion with their “Chili for Choice” event at a Kansas Church. Other events from abortion advocates included a Taco and Beer challenge, “Rock and Roe,” and luncheons. It was also the year that video evidence from the Center for Medical Progress not only told America the depth of depravity the abortion industry generally and Planned Parenthood specifically will sink to when it comes to abortion, but, they showed actual bodies of babies swimming inside a petri dish. And, yet, they celebrate.

Roe its our right

Merriam Webster defines “Celebrate” this way as, “to do something special or enjoyable for an important event, occasion, holiday, etc.” And, this is exactly what the abortion crowd hopes to do. This is like a “holiday” to them. I mean, I am surprised there is no push to get employers to give them paid leave or to pressure lawmakers for a “celebrate ROE” stamp – except, of course, stamps are becoming so yesterday. Just like abortion.

In a culture that is more pro-life than ever, abortion is more like your grandmother’s “issue” – not that of the youth of today. Yet…here we go again, when a small minority of pro-abortion advocates who still “live in the 1970’s” regurgitate the ignorant lie that a preborn child can be reduced to a “parasite” because they are “nonhuman,” that is unless you need their kidneys, liver, or brain tissue. And, the funniest part about it is that they expect modern America to “Celebrate abortion” with them. Come on….is this a joke?

Ro 43 Together for abortion

Nope, in fact, the Planned Parenthood abortion crowd is going to blast Twitter with the hashtag “Together for Abortion” because – well- they are…FOR ABORTION! And, to help already struggling pro-abortion organizers, a list of where or what the the event can be has been published:

    public or private
    large or small *[I’m predicting VERY small]
    a major speak out
    a cocktail or dinner party
    a handful of friends around a kitchen table
    an abortion storytelling event
    an art show or concert
    a crafting party
    a work break
    a student group
    a place where your community already exists
    a way to meet new people

*editorial comment

Dinner party? What would be on that menu? Red meat, body part soup?

Storytelling…

CRAFTING PARTY…

Say What????

Okay…I have to stop there and ask – exactly what would an abortion celebrating CRAFTING PARTY look like?

Nevermind…I don’t even want to know!

Roe at 43

I have glanced over some of the 43rd anniversary Roe Celebrations and so far they are shall I say (to be nice) “typical” – yawn – or perhaps “boring” would be a better adjective to describe an old fashioned event when a handful of people will gather at a state Capitol or inside a Unitarian Church, to talk about how “Roe” saved them from that oh-so-horrible baby oops I mean “fetus” oops again “pregnancy” that would have ruined their life somehow. I mean, can’t they think of anything new to say?

    “Stand for Choice”
    “Celebrate Roe”
    “Break the Stigma”
    “Its our right”
    “Shout your abortion”

Blah…blah…blah…

Why don’t abortion advocates just say it like it is?

    “Celebrate the dismembering of preborn children in all months of pregnancy”
    “Come hear me blame a little baby for my inability to be successful”
    “Stand up for excuses to end a child’s life”
    “43 years and women still die from legal abortion, celebrate with us”
    “Celebrate a woman’s right so we can turn around and deny the most basic human right”
    “Break all regulations because we want to go back”
    “Shout the deliberate targeting of minorities with abortion”

Well…to my out-of-touch pro-abortion friends so stuck in the past, I know you are desperate because you see your precious law being dismantled before your eyes. Even though it is still early in the month to get your events organized, I have to be honest with you about something. What I am seeing so far is very disappointing. Look, if you are happy about abortion, if you think ripping an innocent baby apart in the womb is so liberating that it is worth celebrating, then at least be a tiny bit more creative….because…the truth is your protests are getting so predictable that even die hard opponents like myself are losing interest in them.

Let nobody ever doubt,” Bishop Farrell said, “that we will stand up and that we will never say that we will ever give up. We are determined to bring this victory home. We will do it!.”

We have many challenges ahead but we can never falter and we can never weaken. God is on our side and once God is on our side, we will not fail- He promised us…

Also speaking at the march was Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress who said that Supreme Courts gets cases wrong like Dred Scott and Roe v. Wade.

IMG_2904

This is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats or Liberals and Conservatives, it is a battle between good and evil, between light and darkness, between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan. And it is a battle we are going to win,” Jeffress told the crowd.

As expected, there was a virtual blackout of the march by the news media. There were only three pro-abortion protesters present at the event. One abortion advocate held a sign that read, “Free abortions on demand,” and when confronted by a pro-life woman at the rally, he and the female pro-choicers with him gave weak arguments while admitting that abortion takes the life of a baby in the womb.

The event has been documented on Life Dynamics’ Bikers for Life website – see more here:

This year marks the 42nd anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court Decision which legalized abortion o demand in America.

Pro-lifers are gearing up to bring attention to the plight of millions of unborn children executed by abortion.

In Texas, John Piscotta of Pro-life Waco is planning to unveil a HUGE banner across I35, which reads, “Abortion is never OK. No Roe

Piscotta wrote this on his Hometown Pro-life Action Facebook page,”Interstate 35 pedestrian overpass demonstration on Roe day. I just received the main sign we will be using. It was the widest sign the company has ever made. This Pro-Life Waco demonstration happens on Thursday, January 24 from 11 to 1 p.m. We would love to have YOUR participation in this first (but not last) overpass demonstration in Waco. We need pro-lifers to hold signs and draw attention to our signs. The I-35 location is adjacent to Baylor University. Park your car in the lot of the new Chick Fill-A off 6th Street. Then walk less than a block to the entrance to the pedestrian overpass. Write or call me at 254-644-0407 is you have questions.”

Texas History:

In March 1970, a suit was filed in Dallas on behalf of plaintiff Jane Roe and all other women “who were or might become pregnant and want to consider all options.”

At the time, in Texas, abortions were prohibited except to save the pregnant woman’s life. But, on June 17, 1970 the three-judge federal panel struck down the Texas abortion statute.

Henry Wade, a Dallas district attorney who defended the Texas law and the state attorney general appealed, leading, eventually, to the Supreme Court ruling: Roe v. Wade.

In California- Black pro-lifers are planning a rally in Oakland.

Hoyes Oakland Pro-life Rallly Jan 2015

The Oakland pro-life event is being organized by Rev. Walter Hoye.

An page on Hoye’s website about the rally reads, “We walk because abortion in the Black community is a form of genocide, it is the Darfur of America. We walk because abortion in Black America is the civil rights issue of our day. We walk because abortion does violence, both physically and emotionally, to men and women, to their children, and to their families.

Rev. Hoye said that they have invited half a dozen speakers for their without life nothing matters rally to be held on Friday, January 23rd, at noon at the Oakland City Hall at One Frank H. Ogawa Plaza.

Hoye has invited several Black pro-life leaders to speak at the Oakland rally including Rev. Clenard Childress and Connie Eller who were interviewed in Life Dynamics’ powerful documentary on abortion and Black genocide, Maafa21.

In addition, Hoye said that Pastor Bruce Rivers who leads Mount Moriah Baptist Church, Pastor Walter Moss who is the pastor of the Foursquare Church in Canton, Ohio, Evangelist Richard Lane who is the only full time Black American Lay Catholic Ministries in the United States of America, and Rev. Hoye will also speak.

Hoye said his message to the crowd is, “If Black lives are going to matter, they have to matter in the womb first. Because if they don’t matter in the womb, they don’t matter anywhere.”

Unfortunately, radical pro-abortion communist have announced plans to protest the rally. Pro-lifers can find out more about Hoye’s pro-life rally here.

In Albuquerque, New Mexico, pro-lifers plan MLK-style protests to fight for unborn.

Protest ABQ has planned a national strike for January 22 and 23 which they say is similar to tactics employed by the late Martin Luther King, Jr.

Not go to work, not go to school, and that brings in the strike aspect of the event,” says organizer Tara Shaver. “But instead we want people to be prayerful, to fast and to protest, whether that be at a local abortion mill, on the state capitol building.”

No place is off limits, and people are being asked to not spend money during those two days.

The hope of the strike and protest is to use peaceful means to send a resounding message to lawmakers and the courts that American people want to see an end to abortion.

“Every Life is a Gift” will be the theme of the 2015 March for Life, in DC.

Organizers seek to draw attention to the pre-born populations that are at the greatest risk for abortion: those who receive a prenatal disability diagnosis. The march will take place on January 22, 2015.

The day’s events will begin with a rally on the National Mall, which will be followed by a march to the U.S. Supreme Court to hear testimony from women who regret their abortion.
