I’ve seen the result of legalized abortion, and it’s nothing to celebrate

By now, most Live Action News readers have heard the tragic news that Ireland (with assistance from pro-choice forces in the United States) has voted to repeal the Eighth Amendment, which had, for decades, protected the right to life of preborn children. News reports on social media showed jubilant celebration from pro-abortion advocates just after the vote was tallied.

But any rejoicing over abortion is ill-advised. After all, it has never ended poverty or stopped child abuse, spousal abuse or rape. It has never ended economic disparity, racism, or sexism.

Instead, it has created an entire industry that cares little for assisting women with real solutions. The women and men of this industry sell their souls and become slaves to profit.

(Warning: Contains images of abortion victims.)

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar loftily speculated to the New York Times that women in Ireland will now endure “[n]o more stigma. The veil of secrecy is lifted. No more isolation. The burden of shame is gone.”

But if Varadkar is correct (and he isn’t), then Ireland will have accomplished in hours what 45 years of legalized abortion still hasn’t accomplished in the United States. Simply travel to a local abortion facility and you can observe first hand that women do not arrive smiling, nor do they exit dancing. Instead, what you will see is a number of raw emotions — from doubt to anger to confusion. Some women are in tears as they leave, and most do so with their heads held low. This is hardly a picture of a shameless or guiltless movement.

Today, decades after the U.S. Supreme Court ushered in the infamous Roe v. Wade decision, despite the futile efforts of the pro-choice lobby to promise that women who seek this so-called “medical procedure” will feel liberated, testimony from women who have chosen abortion says just the opposite. As is the case when abortion is legalized, new found “liberation” eventually gives way to the realization that abortion truly is as horrific as pro-lifers have always claimed. When the “veil of secrecy” is lifted, it reveals an incredible evil.

I learned this first hand in the 1990’s when I found aborted children who had been illegally discarded in the trash. I held the broken bodies of these precious children, and what I felt in that moment was far from a liberating feeling. What I witnessed was violent, bloody, and gruesome — and not just for the unborn children. Over the years, I helped to document how countless women left these so-called safe and legal abortion facilities in ambulances, and others who died later, and at least one who bled to death in her car on her way home.

The fallout became even more of a reality for me when I attended the funeral of Carolina Guttierez, who suffered a serious infection as a result of her abortion, leading doctors to amputate parts of her body in an attempt to save her life. Sadly, the infection won, and Carolina, as well as her preborn child, became statistics and calculated “complication risks” in the abortion battle.

Women who embrace this so-called “right” may unfortunately find themselves in Carolina’s situation, or perhaps that of Cree-Erwin Shepherd, who also died after her legal abortion, which she sought at a Planned Parenthood in recent years. In the video below, Cree’s brother describes what took place:

Today, the names of these deceased women have been conveniently forgotten by the U.S. pro-choice lobby, who consistently ignore the fact that legalizing abortion does not necessarily make it safe. Some women dancing in the streets of Ireland this week could, along with some women in the U.S., become the next victims of abortion, sacrificed along with their children on the altar of “choice.”

Once the floodgates of abortion are opened — in any country — it leaves in its wake nothing but heartache and tears, because it does not solve a woman’s problems; it adds to them.

Remembering abortion victims retrieved from trash dumpster

Posted in Aborted Baby Trash, Carole OpEd, OP-Ed with tags , , , , , , , on March 8, 2016 by saynsumthn

The number of abortions committed since it was legalized in 1973 is so astronomical that many people cannot begin to wrap their minds around it? As abortion tragically weaves its murderous roots deep into American society, it is easy to become calloused. That was apparent at another point in history when Rev. Gilbert Haven looked back on slavery and wrote, “We are so familiar with the word Slavery, that its real scope and character do not smite the eye with true horror.” These words ring true today in a society which tolerates the evil of abortion.

Those of us who have been in the pro-life battle for many years can sometimes get so overwhelmed at the numbers of abortions that we need to be reminded that every abortion takes the life of one, very precious baby. That reality was never more true to me, than the day I personally found aborted babies. Strange as it is, there are only a handful of pro-life people who have experienced this first hand. Interestingly, it was my interest in the Nazi Holocaust which motivated me to search for these precious children. As I would watch documentaries of the Holocaust, I remember asking myself, “Who took that picture?” As I contemplated the horror of that time in history, I knew that had those images never been released, the world would never have known the true evil that took place.

And, with that in mind, I prayed to the Lord that if aborted babies were being thrown in the trash, that He would lead me to where they were so I could have the honor to offer the babies the dignity of my tears along with a humane burial. So, a friend and I began to do what we called back then “Dumpster Diving” to see if we could find any babies that were being thrown away and we did. The process of uncovering these children was daunting. We pulled their broken bodies from the trash over a period of weeks and meticulously removed each identifiable human part from the mass of bloody gauze that held their tiny body inside each container.

ABorted babies in container

I will never forget the very first gauze sac I opened and what I saw. There inside the gauze sac was a fully formed arm. I wasn’t shocked because I knew what abortion did. I think I felt overwhelmed almost in denial that what I was documenting was part of the largest genocide in American history. I knew, that one day, people would look back on this and ask why we allowed this to take place on our shore.

Aborted baby arm 2

As you can imagine, we continued to uncover pieces of babies, victims of early, suction abortion. Those precious lives which began in the safety of their mother’s womb were brutally killed and then laid to rest inside a trash dumpster. The callousness of that kind of brutality haunted me for a long long time. I remember thinking to myself, “I wonder if each mom knows that their baby was thrown in the garbage by this abortion clinic.”

IMG_2931

But, aborted victims from early abortions were not all we found. In the bottom of the bag were pieces of a baby we estimated to be in the second trimester. That child’s foot was one of only a few parts thrown away by the clinic in that garbage bag. We never found the rest of that child.

Aborted baby foot 2

It takes love to do what we do to rescue these kids and I admire each person who dedicates themselves to see them protected. It is easy to let the years discourage us to give up – and every time I feel that way, I take out these pictures of what I call, “my babies” and I recommit myself to never quit. Each and every little person we defend is a unique individual, not a statistic or an “issue” and we can never forget that God knows each one by name.

To encourage myself in this battle for life, I often look to others who faced injustice in their time and glean strength from their sacrifice. One such story of bravery took place in 1942 when Hans Scholl, a medical student at the University of Munich, along with his sister Sophie, and other brave young people founded the “White Rose” movement. This movement was one of the few German groups that spoke out against Nazi genocidal policies.

Sophie and her brother along with others in the “White Rose” movement committed themselves to speaking out about the evil of their day, writing this to their fellow students, “We will not be silent. We are your bad conscience. The White Rose will not leave you in peace!”

In an amazing amount of wisdom for such a young woman, Sophie described those she felt did the most damage in their response in their failure to stand against the Nazi Holocaust:

The real damage is done by those millions who want to ‘survive.’ The honest men who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes.Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves—or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature.”

Does this sound like the average American where abortion is concerned? For their courage, Sophie and Hans Scholl and another member of their White Rose group, Christoph Probst, were executed on Feb. 22, 1943.

On the day we held a funeral for the aborted babies we retrieved from the trash dumpster, we encouraged every man, woman, and child to come forward and to lay a rose on top of the tiny baby casket which held their broken remains. It did not take long before my eyes filled with tears. In what I would describe as one of the most emotional events I have ever been part of, I began to weep uncontrollably like I have never cried before. It was at this time, that I felt the full impact of what I had witnessed and as long as we keep showing the truth of abortion, others will feel it as well.

Kermit Gosnell activity happening at highest levels of Planned Parenthood says Daleiden

Posted in Center for Medical Progress, David Daleiden with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 20, 2015 by saynsumthn

On Wednesday’s Dana Loesch show Center for Medical Progress lead investigator, David Daleiden called what was revealed in his latest video exposing Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation “Kermit Gosnell activity.”

Dana Loesch David Daleidon Planned Parenthood

The latest video, number 7, is horrific and shows eyewitness Holly O’Donnell, a former StemExpress procurement technician describing the day she was called upon to remove brain tissue from a baby born alive, with his heart still beating after a Planned Parenthood abortion.

Gosnell275x

It is Kermit Gosnell activity happening at the highest levels of Planned Parenthood,” Daleiden told Loesch.

Gosnell ran the Philadelphia House of Horrors abortion facility and is serving time in prison for severing the spines of babies born alive.

One of the interesting facts that came out about the Gosnell case was that many within the abortion industry knew what he was doing and remained silent.

In fact, according to media reports, leaders from local Planned Parenthood affiliates knew exactly what was going on:

Daylesteinberg

CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania Dayle Steinberg began her association with Planned Parenthood in 1978 as a graduate intern, joined the full-time staff in 1981, served as director of surgical services from 1986-1992, then served for eight years as senior vice president, and was appointed president and CEO in 2001.

In February of 2010 WHYY reported that Steinberg denied knowing of any of the horrific conditions at Gosnells’ abortion clinic. They wrote: Steinberg: We do anticipate that women who might have scheduled appointments for abortion procedures at the Women’s Medical Society will be calling Planned Parenthood. and then reported, “Steinberg says she knows that Gosnell has provided abortions in Philadelphia for many years, but says she hadn’t heard of any problems at clinic until the allegations surfaced in recent days.”

PP Lied GosnellBut later, according to Philly.com : Steinberg said this about Gosnell at a public fundraiser: “Steinberg said that when Gosnell was in practice, women would sometimes come to Planned Parenthood for services after first visiting Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic, and would complain to staff about the conditions there.

“’We would always encourage them to report it to the Department of Health,’ Steinberg said as she sat with Steinem before Tuesday’s events.”

Despite her obvious contradictions, the media is publishing statements by Steinberg regarding Planned Parenthood’s gruesome operation. Case in point is an August 2015 op-ed where Steinberg accuses the Center for Medical Progress of editing the videos. She also details the many vaccines made from the body parts of aborted children.

Her words were published by Philly.com which read in part:

    Although none of the Planned Parenthood health centers in Pennsylvania is participating in fetal-tissue donation programs, we recognize their deep value. The polio vaccine was developed from fetal kidney cells, as were vaccines against chicken pox, rubella, hepatitis A, and shingles. So, too, were treatments for diseases that include Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. And thousands of women who chose abortion have found great comfort and a sense of social good from donating fetal tissue to advance medical treatments that save lives. According to an article published by the New England Journal of Medicine, “Virtually every person in this country has benefited from research using fetal tissue. . . By using the public’s unfamiliarity with the history and realities of fetal-tissue research as a back door for attacking Planned Parenthood, abortion opponents have added millions of people to the collateral damage of the abortion wars.”

Planned Parenthood Mar Monte San Jose

Daleiden described Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA., where O’Donnell was when she removed the brains from an intact born alive infant, as the largest Planned Parenthood facility with a $100 MILLION dollar a year budget. (Keep in mind they also receive tax dollars) and their latest (2012) 990 report indicates this is true:

Planned Parenthood Mar Monte 100 million 990

That same report lists Dorothy L Furgerson as the Chief Medical Director.

Does this name ring a bell? It should, Dorothy L Furgerson endorsed StemExpress and was listed on their brochure claiming a financial profit for those who utilize their services.

Stem Express financial benefit Planned Parenthood 1

In addition to Furgerson, the 990 lists “physicians” Abraham C Cabebe and Karen Webster.

2012 PLanned Parenthood Mar Monte med director abortionists

A 2008, 2009 and 2010 990 for the same Planned Parenthood affiliate lists Ronald Berman and Jesse Joplin.

Ron Berman Planned Parenthood STemExpress

Berman is a StemExpress Medical Director who is also a Planned Parenthood abortion doctor accused by former procurement technician, O’Donnell of getting aborted babies, “viciously fast.” Telling CMP investigators that she imagined Dr. Berman literally, “going into the room, lifting the covers, going in, grabbing and walking out. Like that’s how fast it is, it’s ridiculous.”

Center for Medical Progress Dana Loesch

Daleiden told Loesch that four Congressional committees have opened up investigations into Planned Parenthood. He said lawsuits from StemExpress as well as NAF has not deterred him from releasing some of the most horrific aspects of CMP’s investigation.

Despite the horrifying video evidence, some people still support Planned Parenthood.

For further consideration, the Daily Signal has published a video explaining all of the concerns raised by the videos to date. Watch it here.

$465K from Komen to Planned Parenthood which harvests baby parts

Posted in Komen, Planned Parenthood and Komen with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 29, 2015 by saynsumthn

Breast cancer non-profit Susan G. Komen said in a July 2015 press release that their Affiliates fund “breast cancer screening and outreach programs” at 11 Planned Parenthood centers in local communities, with grants totaling $465,000.

Komen 2015 Planned Parenthood

This mammogram page from Komen’s website updated the July of 2015 shows Komen referring to Planned Parenthood:

Komen Planned Parenthood

Yet, pro-lifers have documented that Planned Parenthood does NOT perform mammograms!

Komen came under fire in 2012 for funding the abortion clinic chain to the point that they removed the organization from their list of grantees. But, they soon reversed that position and apologized agreeing to fund Planned Parenthood once again.

A 2014 report by the LA Times revealed how much support Komen lost from the Planned Parenthood controversy:

    with its release of its latest financial statements, the cost of that decision can be measured: It’s more than $77 million, or fully 22% of the foundation’s income. That’s how much less the Dallas-based foundation collected in contributions, sponsorships and entry fees for its sponsored races in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013, compared with the previous year. The raw figures are these: In the most recent fiscal year Komen booked $270 million; the year before that, Komen booked $348 million.

    Last year’s decline was a continuation of a slightly longer trend. In fiscal 2011 the organization collected $367 million. Komen officials are candid in attributing much of last year’s sharp decline to the Planned Parenthood controversy, though they also point to the general economic slump. Participation in the group’s signature Race for the Cure events is also down.

Despite being founded in racist eugenics and covering for pedophiles, Planned Parenthood has recently come under fire after their top medical doctors were caught on camera admitting to gruesome practices of harvesting the organs from the babies they abort.

The undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress have been going viral causing Americans to express outrage and demanding that Planned Parenthood be investigated and defunded.

The third video released shows the aborted babies inside Planned Parenthood’s path lab and have left American breathless to the evil this organization commits.

Now, blogger Jill Stanek has discovered that Planned Parenthood has hired crisis management firm SKDKnickerbocker “as it scrambles to deal with the ongoing scandal”

This after their original PR Firm sent out a statement calling the grisly operation of trafficking in human baby parts “humanitarian undertakings.”

Abortionists in India fed aborted babies to dogs

Posted in India with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2015 by saynsumthn

Anti-abortion activist Varsha Deshpande works to save girls from abortion in India.

According to India Today, the Lek Ladki Abhiyan, a movement started by her, has carried out 42 sting operations against diagnostic centres and maternity homes conducting sex determination and abortion based on it.

In 2014, the sting operations resulted in no less than 18 convictions leading to 494 cases being lodged, which ended up in 64 convictions.

Lek Ladki Abhiyan is now claiming that a doctor couple who ran an illegal abortion clinic in Marathwada town of Beed, fed the aborted fetuses to dogs.

According to TheHindu:

    The sting revealed a horrifying act — the doctors disposed of aborted foetuses by feeding them to dogs.

    Shailaja Jadhav, who was part of the operation and whose statement was recorded by the divisional magistrate in September 2010, told The Hindu on the phone: “During the operation, Mr. Munde told a five-month pregnant woman, who was acting as our decoy, that there was no legal concern. He said they had dogs downstairs and they would eat the foetuses.”

    We were so shocked that we went down to check and we did find two dogs feeding on aborted foetuses. The whole scene was so revolting I could not sleep for two days,” Ms. Jadhav said.

More the The Deaccan Herald:

    Lek Ladki Abhiyan, the NGO that exposed the doctors’ activities in 2010, claimed that Dr Sudam Munde and Dr Sarawati Munde –who were given six years prison term for a 2010 illegal abortion case— also dumped the foetuses in a nearby well.

    doctor-sudam-munde-20120522

    Dr Sudam, an MS (Surgeon), and Dr Sarawati, an MD (gynaecology), were convicted in three cases of Pre-conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection Act) registered in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

    Varsha Deshpande from Lek Ladki Abhiyan claimed that Dr Munde had boasted about conducting abortions and feeding the foetuses to five of his dogs during a sting operation by her NGO in 2010.

    They have never been out of bail since 2012….the effective sentence in this case would be around four years,” Deshpande told Deccan Herald.

    She alleged that the Mundes in the last 25 years could have easily carried out close to 90,000 to one lakh abortions. “They used to see 90 patients daily and conduct around 25 operations. People from across Maharashtra used to visit them for abortions,” she said.

    They had four dogs in the hospital complex….15 in their field and also they used to dump aborted foetuses in wells,” she said, adding that her NGO had requested the CID to dig the wells.

Incinerating Aborted babies for electricity is Hitleresque

CBS News is reporting, that the electricity generated in Oregon may have included aborted babies. Commissioners said they were horrified and disgusted to learn that Covanta Marion was burning abortion waste to generate electricity. The facility is owned and operated by Covanta in a partnership with the county. It processes 550 tons of municipal solid waste a day, with only a small portion coming from medical sources.

From the story
An Oregon county commission has ordered an incinerator to stop accepting boxed medical waste to generate electricity after learning the waste it’s been burning may include tissue from aborted fetuses from British Columbia.

Aborted Babies Incinerated2

This blog previously wrote how news outlets like the UK Telegraph reported that the remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as ‘clinical waste’ by hospitals in Britain with some used in ‘waste to energy’ plants.

Ten NHS trusts admitted burning fetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat.

Oregon location

Back in Oregon, Sam Brentano, chairman of the Marion County board of commissioners, told the CBS affiliate that the board is taking immediate action to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries at the plant that has been turning waste into energy since 1987.

Oregon

KOIN interviewed Bud Waterman, a former temp worker at Covanta Marion, Inc., who said he saw 53-foot tractor trailers carrying biohazards dropping off loads at the facility in Brooks at least two to three times a week.

On more than one occasion, Waterman said the contents of the truck spilled out of their containers.

“It would make you sick, especially if you had to clean it up or have to pull a box off the trailer,” said Waterman,”If you had to pull a box off the trailer, there’s so much blood.

Waterman told the news station he believed that fetuses had been incinerated at the plant for years and used for energy.

“They knew it, they had to,” Waterman said.

In addition to aborted babies being incinerated there was biohazard waste such as individual human body parts which were used at the plant.

So if someone loses an arm, loses a finger?” Marion County commissioners Janet Carlson asked at the meeting.

That should go in and be burned,” Brentano replied. “As gross as that is.”

According to KOIN, Covanta placed blame on Marion County and said the company is halting the program until answers are given.

“The medical waste program at the Marion County Resource Recovery Facility is County run and managed,” Covanta said in a statement. “Marion County contracts for and delivers medical waste to the facility and Covanta has no responsibility for the program. Covanta is shocked by these allegations and is discontinuing the receipt of this waste stream until we have been assured by the County that this alleged material is not being delivered to the facility.”

Focal Point‘s Bryan Fischer called the practice barbaric and Hitleresque and said that we are no different than Nazi Germany. He compared this practice with those done centuries ago when Ancient Israel babies sacrificed their children to the idol Moloch.

According to ABC NEWS, The Oregon facility is a partnership between the county and Covanta, a New Jersey-based firm that operates energy-from-waste power generation plants. The Marion County plant processes 550 tons of municipal solid waste a day, with only a small portion coming from medical sources. It sells the power to Portland General Electric.

Jill Stueck, a Covanta spokeswoman, said the company is cooperating with the suspension, and it does not seek out the waste that mortified commissioners.

No one is saying bring us fetal tissue,” Stueck said.

Jeff Bickford, environmental services division manager in Marion County, said the facility there has been taking material from British Columbia for five to seven years. He said clinical waste providers such as Stericycle bring in medical waste ranging from syringes and body parts to laboratory cultures and bodily fluids after hospitals and clinics place it into red bags and sealed containers.

Stericycle

Pro-lifers have been exposing Stericycle for picking up abortion clinic waste for years.

The group , Repent America launched a campaign to stop Stericycle after recording Stericycle admitting that they pick up aborted babies from Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics.

2-01-Harvest-Brochure-Cover

In April of 1997, the national pro-life group Life Dynamics began an undercover investigation into the marketing of body parts harvested from babies killed by elective abortions. This investigation lasted approximately 31 months. An extensive report of that investigation has been uploaded on the Life Dynamics website (here). The group says that most of the information in the report was provided by employees who worked at Comprehensive Health for Women (Comp Health) – a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic located in Overland Park, Kansas.

Disturbing: Aborted babies incinerated in waste to energey plants heat hospitals

Posted in Aborted Baby Trash, Abortion energy, fetal Remains, Feticide, Fetus Dumping with tags , , , , , , on March 24, 2014 by saynsumthn

UK Telegraph is reporting that the remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as ‘clinical waste’ by hospitals in Britain with some used in ‘waste to energy’ plants.

The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found.

Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning foetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat.

Last night the Department of Health issued an instant ban on the practice which health minister Dr Dan Poulter branded ‘totally unacceptable.’

At least 15,500 foetal remains were incinerated by 27 NHS trusts over the last two years alone, Channel 4’s Dispatches discovered.

The programme, which will air tonight, found that parents who lose children in early pregnancy were often treated without compassion and were not consulted about what they wanted to happen to the remains.

One of the country’s leading hospitals, Addenbrooke’s in Cambridge, incinerated 797 babies below 13 weeks gestation at their own ‘waste to energy’ plant. The mothers were told the remains had been ‘cremated.’

Another ‘waste to energy’ facility at Ipswich Hospital, operated by a private contractor, incinerated 1,101 foetal remains between 2011 and 2013.
They were brought in from another hospital before being burned, generating energy for the hospital site. Ipswich Hospital itself disposes of remains by cremation.
