Remembering abortion victims retrieved from trash dumpster

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.

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.

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.”

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.

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.

Photo that “haunted the world” reveals media hypocrisy over abortion images

McCain Syrian Boy

During a speech on the Senate floor, Arizona Senator John McCain used the photo of Aylan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian boy alleged to have drowned while fleeing his home among other refugees, to draw attention to the refugee crisis in the Middle East.

McCain stated:

    “This photo, this photo, which was taken shortly after Aylan’s dead body was washed ashore, has opened the world’s eye to this devastating crisis. Within hours of this photo being posted, people across the world began to share it on social media using a hashtag in Arabic that translates to “humanity washed ashore.” This image has haunted the world….”

In response, Created Equal founder Mark Harrington wrote, “…And I often hear that using abortion victim photos is an ineffective way to persuade people… Hmm.”

Pro-choice woman tries to destroy pro-life display then breaks into tears

On April 29,2015, the pro-life group, Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust were on the camps of UC Santa Cruz when a pro-choice woman approached them.

Disgusting gore Survivors abortion

Saying that she believed abortion was okay, the woman called the pictures of aborted children which the group was holding, “disgusting gore” and “propaganda.”

F-you,” she said over and over again as she saw pictures of what the victims of abortion looked like.

She then attempted to destroy the display, yelling, “You’re not allowed to be here.”

F-you – get out,” she says.

She even picked up one of the placards and almost threw it at a member of the pro-life group, yelling “F-you and everything that you stand for. You are corrupt and spreading misinformation.”

Thankfully as others tried to speak to her, she calmed down.

She then broke into tears.

Survivors tears

Survivors is asking everyone to pray for her, writing, “our hearts were broken.”

Survivor message

We shouldn’t say for sure, but I think it is likely that this poor young lady has had abuse and/or an abortion in her past. If that is the case, she likely, and somewhat understandably, resents men and thinks those who oppose abortion oppress women.

“Whatever happened, she is obviously hurting, and so she deserves our empathy and pity. Abortion is not an acceptable response to rape and it only makes matters worse, but that should not stop us from empathizing with the deep sorrow that the wrongs of rape and abortion can cause.

Jackson police watch as thieves steal pro-life group’s property

On July 17, 2014, the national pro-life group, Created Equal, who was recently attacked by a pro-choice woman in Ohio which made national news, uploaded a video showing complete disregard by the Jackson, Mississippi police department as their property was stolen.

The group visited Jackson site of the state’s last remaining abortion facility as part of Day 4 of their Summer Justice Ride.

Jackson CLinic July 2014

Upon arrival, and despite several attempts by Created Equal’s leader, Mark Harrington to convince police to intervene, their pro-life signs, displaying pictures of abortion victims, were stolen while police stood by idly.

In the video, you can see the group notifying police that a man is walking off with their signs:

The man takes the group’s sign into a building as they ask him not to steal their property:

A second man brings several signs into the same building- both men boldly walk in front of the video with no concern about the police who are standing by and just watching.

A third thief picks up a sign right in front of law enforcement and walks off.

When the group continues to petition the police – one officer is heard on the video saying, “I’m watching.”

The group’s leader, Mark Harrington continues to request police stop the thieves- and the police continue to stand by and watch without intervention:

According to the group-since the incident occurred, charges have been filed against the perpetrator….

Instead of criticizing the police for their inaction- here is how the local media reported this:

FROM WAPT:

The group began its protest outside the clinic, but when they started putting signs up in front of businesses across the street, a problem arose. The protesters claim some business owners removed the signs and stole them, so they called police.

Nathan Glenn, who owns Rooster’s, a restaurant in the building across the street from the clinic, said he didn’t take the signs off the sidewalk, but he was unhappy about how the protesters affected his business Thursday morning.

“(Customers) can’t get to my building. They can’t get to my front door. I’ve got four signs this way and three signs behind you,” Glenn said.

Protesters argued that the business owners had no right to touch the signs because they were on a public sidewalk. The municipal code for the city of Jackson prohibits portable signs. But the signs stayed on the sidewalk until the protest wrapped up, even after police arrived.

And the Clarion-Ledger said:

The protesters say some business owners took the signs.
