On abortion’s evil in the world: act as an “upstander” not “bystander”

“Feeling overwhelmed” those words were written on my Facebook status today.

Today was the 4th time the Center for Medical Progress released a horrifying under cover video exposing Planned Parenthood’s gruesome baby parts operation.

I watched the 11 minute video and on some level it was not a surprise.

On another level I was angered by the repeated way Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde described the babies before they are even dead as “specimens.”

I do not want to camp on the Mengele-like experiments that Planned Parenthood is doing in this post, plenty of others are doing that.

I want to focus on the baby – the human person- the infant whose body parts are more valuable to Planned Parenthood and their partner Stem Express than the whole intact, live child.

As I have mentioned before, I have found and buried aborted babies. This video again struck my memory over that experience. I’ve been told that in some way, I was dealing with PTSD, similar to the way a first responder or a soldier might experience it when they see something so traumatic that the human mind wants to shut it out. I actually wrote a blog post on that very thing entitled: Pro-lifers: the forgotten first responders, which you can read here.

Holocaust SUrvivor

In 1945 Dallas Peyton, who was a member of the 70th Armored Infantry which helped liberate Jews inside the Nazi Dachau camp encountered survivors and evidence of atrocities had a similar experience and spoke about it in 2004:

    “Most of the things I saw were so horrible that they’ve been blocked mentally, I guess from self-preservation or something, that I don’t remember the details very much,” he said.

    “I remember a couple of scenes very vivid. One, when we were approaching, we saw a trainload of prisoners. Turned out they were not prisoners. It was a trainload of bodies that had been sent to Dachau from Buchenwald, I presume to be, to go through the furnaces, ovens, of Dachau. That’s a presumption. The other scene was in the camp grounds. I saw two of these living walking skeletons shuffling along toward each other. They got within a few yards of each other, stopped, stared at each other, and then they tried to run, and embraced. They were either related or very close friends, and until that moment neither knew the other was still alive. And yet they’d been in that same prison for who knows how long. Those two scenes I remember very vivid, but a lot of the others I don’t.”

As I reflect over the past few weeks I have begun to sense a frustration among my fellow pro-life friends, that in light of these Planned Parenthood videos, the reality of the defenseless unborn child in the womb is not being conveyed strongly enough. This is by no means the fault of the pro-life group releasing the videos, in fact, they are to be commended.

It is simple human nature that when you see your opponent on the defensive, exposed and vulnerable, that you would focus on that for a while. And, it is important to remember that these videos could lead to a criminal investigation and possible defunding of the abortion clinic chain.


But, regardless of the result, we are the only voice for the unborn child.

We MUST advocate for them.

In the words of Albert Einstein, The world is too dangerous to live in not because of the people who do evil- but because of the people who sit and let it happen.”

I recently visited the Holocaust Museum in Dallas, Texas.

On their website they state that: “Here we make UpStanders.”

The definition of an Upstander is shown below and reads, “A Person who stands up not a person who stands by.”


What the Nazis did in Germany was legal at that time.

“And it was a crime. A crime against humanity. Oh, you don’t forget this
,” the Holocaust Museum narrator continues.

A child heard in the promotional video says that before she went to the museum she had no idea that 1.5 million children had been murdered by the Nazis.

“We did not know. We were not there. You were there and you do know,” the child’s voice continues.

“I learned to stand up even when no one else is, because I learned that one person can make a difference,” a 9th grade museum visitor wrote.

You have opened my eyes,” wrote another student.

Today, America is saying the same thing.

We did not know.

I’m shocked!

You did not know?

What did you think happened inside an abortion or Planned Parenthood facility?

The sanitized word abortion is as much a clinical term to the baby as the word “specimen” is. It does not paint the reality of the situation that it is the merciless execution of a human baby for profit.

To me, the CMP videos play an important role, in that, they are opening up to the American people the true and gruesome image of what abortion really is.

In the past, we have seen the still photos of the abortion victims. But, this week we peered into the death chamber’s back room where the “abortion hyenas” pick through the broken and bloodied remains of innocent children to see how they can enhance their pocket book even further. And we see it in video. We hear the callous references.

It is very disturbing!

Planned Parenthood path lab aborted baby

For those who looked, Kudos, for many who won’t I get it. The images are horrible. For the ones who have no idea, it is probably because the media is, after 42 years of legalized abortion, censoring their images again.

But, this is not a car wreck. It is not a drive by where you slow down – look out your window to see as much as you can while a police officer waives you by, thinking “how tragic” as you drive off. This is a murder and you are an eye witness. Everyday that abortion happens in our nation, in your city, your neighborhood near your church, you are affected.

That baby is the victim – that child is innocent!

But- what are we?

Are we to walk by like nothing is happening? To turn on the TV – go to our churches, clubs, movies and shopping malls with no outrage? Sadly, that has been the reaction all too often.

Last month, I posted a video of an experiment called The Bystander Effect.

It was conducted as a result of the 1964 murder of a young woman by the name of “Kitty Genovese” who was stabbed to death outside her home in Queens, New York.

Kitty Genovese Bystander

Kitty’s neighbors heard her desperate screams for help, yet no one called the police until it was too late and Kitty was dead. The event shocked the city and the nation, and became the impetus for research on the psychological phenomenon that became known as the “Bystander Effect” by psychologists John Darley and Bibb Latané.

It’s not enough to feel outraged you have to also be outraged. You must be motivated to work legally to end the slaughter for so many are apathetic at best and out-right pro-abortion at worst.


Kelli over at Live Action News today showed the contrast between the reaction to unborn babies being sold for body parts and the recent tragic shooting of a 13-year-old Lion named Cecil.

    “…while Jimmy Kimmel and the rest of the world grieve over the death of a single lion, they also turn a blind eye to the story of children senselessly slaughtered – and sold for parts – by Planned Parenthood. Some – like Kimmel’s ex-girlfriend, for instance – go beyond turning a blind eye, instead expressing support for making good use of those fetal organs. For science, you know,” Kelli wrote.

She continued, “But the truth is, what we don’t want to see, we won’t see. We will cover our eyes and yell “fake!” because dead children just hit too close to home, and we’re far too culpable.”

Dallas Holocaust Museum

During my trip to the Dallas Holocaust Museum, I was moved to tears by what I saw.

They displayed artifacts from Jews who were taken to various Nazi concentration camps where their Bodies were stripped of all humanity. The Nazi’s took their teeth, their clothes, possessions and anything they saw as “valuable” leaving only their naked bodies to be worked, beaten, starved and in most cases murdered.

In the museum there was a wall displaying news articles of that era and I was struck by the words I read.

Holocaust Action not pity

A petition published in the New York Times from May 1943 asked:

    “when will the UN establish an agency to deal with the problem of Hitlers extermination of a whole people?”

Holocaust NYT articles (Image Credit)

A voice of Christendom petition published February 26, 1943 also caught my attention and read in part:

    It is not enough to indict and name the murderers. It is time for America and the United Nations to act!

    Every hour sees the murder of more thousands…

    How well are you sleeping ? Is there something you could have done to save millions of innocent people-Men, women and children from torture and death?

Another image captures the true spirit in a powerful quote:

    It reads:

    “Though it be to die we will fight. We will fight not for ourselves but for future generations. Although we will not survive to see it, our murderers will pay for their crimes after we are gone. Our deeds will live forever.”

In 2012, Holocaust Survivor Max Glauben received German records from his time in the concentration camp labeled “konzentrationslager.”

His arm still bears the tattoo KL.

As he glanced at the documents, he made a stunning observation, “For the whole duration, I thought I was a nobody. But evidently, some of us were somebody — because look at the records they kept,” he said.

One day history will say the same about these babies labeled as “products of conception” as their organs are deemed valuable enough to document and haggle over.

The Holocaust survivor once told a group of school children, “If you listen to a witness, you become a witness,” he said.

In recounting his life’s story, Glauben spoke about his life’s overall lesson.

As I near the end of this post, I ask that you ponder his words:

    Always deliver your best work; never give up; and act as an “upstander,” not a “bystander,” if you witness evil in the world.

Planned Parenthood’s “Dr. Frankenstein” exposed: selling of aborted baby parts

Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby body parts CMP

A new and shocking undercover investigation has alleged that Planned Parenthood is selling aborted baby parts using the outlawed gruesome partial birth abortion procedure.

Deborah Nucatola Planned Parenthood body parts

The multi-year operation, which revealed the grisly operation of questionable and possibly illegal activity at the nation’s largest abortion clinic chain, could call into question Planned Parenthood’s regular funding of federal tax dollars.

The shocking three year undercover investigation, dubbed the “Human Capital” project, was conducted by the The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) and directed by CMP project lead David Daleiden.

Center for medical progress planned parenthood _4074235482570710431_n

Citizen journalists at CMP spent two-and-a-half years painstakingly gathering hundreds of hours of undercover footage, dozens of eye-witness testimonies, and nearly two hundred pages of primary source documents. The group has audio and video recordings of Planned Parenthood administrators and abortionists casually agreeing to sell freshly-extracted parts from their abortions, and will be releasing the horrific admissions over the next few weeks.

In order to get “specimens” for their gruesome scheme, Planned Parenthood has admitted to CMP undercover operatives that they will alter their abortion methods in order to guarantee the “tissues” most sought after — regardless of what might be best for the aborting mother.

Deborah Nucatola Planned Parenthood body parts change abortion method

The video released today at the CMP website shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, admitting to using illegal partial-birth abortions (PBA) to get higher-quality fetal body parts to sell.

PBA Partial Birth Abortion .image

In the PBA procedure, an almost fully developed unborn baby is delivered from it’s mother, feet first, with only the head remaining inside the birth canal. The abortionist then punctures the child in the back of the neck with a pair of sharp scissors. The abortion doctor then sucks out the baby’s brain tissue to collapse the skull and deliver a dead baby.

According to CMP, the Planned Parenthood worker believed that she was at a business lunch with buyers from a human biologics company. Instead, she was speaking openly with investigative “actors” from the Center for Medical Progress.

As head of PPFA’s Medical Services department, Nucatola has overseen medical practice at all Planned Parenthood locations since 2009. She also trains new Planned Parenthood abortion doctors and performs abortions herself at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles up to 24 weeks.

Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby body parts

Every provider has had patients that want to donate their tissue and they absolutely want to accommodate them.

“They just want to do it in a way that is not perceived as “this clinic is selling tissue, this clinic is making money off this,” Nucatola says in the undercover vid.

Buyers seeking fetal tissue in the video ask Nucatola, “How much of a difference can that actually make, if you know kind of what’s expected, or what we need?”

“It makes a huge difference,” Nucatola replies.

Deborah Nucatola Planned Parenthood body parts partial birth abortion

In a shocking admission, Nucatola tells CMP investigators that the “Federal [partial birth] abortion ban is a law, and laws are up to interpretation” describing how their doctors bring the unborn baby into a breech position.

She then tells CMP that some of the body parts extracted include hearts, lungs, and “always as many intact livers as possible.”

I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps. The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is calvarium. Calvarium—the head—is basically the biggest part.”

Nucatola explains, “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.

“And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex,” she continues. “So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end.”

Deborah Nucatola Planned Parenthood body parts lower extremeties

“Some people want lower extremities too, which, that’s simple. I mean that’s easy.” the Planned Parenthood worker states.

She then describes how she had a “17 weeker” and seemed to imply that the abortionists would change the abortion method to procure the parts necessary from that aborted child.

Nucatola also reveals that Planned Parenthood’s national office is concerned about their liability for the sale of fetal parts: “At the national office, we have a Litigation and Law Department which just really doesn’t want us to be the middle people for this issue right now,” she says. “But I will tell you that behind closed doors these conversations are happening with the affiliates.”

Cecile Richards fetal research Planned Parenthood CMP

A separate clip shows Planned Parenthood President and CEO Cecile Richards praising Nucatola’s work to facilitate connections for fetal tissue collection. “Oh good,” Richards says when allegedly told about Nucatola’s support for fetal tissue collection at Planned Parenthood, “Great. She’s amazing.”

Watch below:

According to CMP’s lead investigator, David Daleiden, “Planned Parenthood’s criminal conspiracy to make money off of aborted baby parts reaches to the very highest levels of their organization. Elected officials must listen to the public outcry for Planned Parenthood to be held accountable to the law and for our tax dollars to stop underwriting this barbaric abortion business.”

Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Frankenstein

Life Legal Defense Foundation, a pro-life law firm located in California says that they are not surprised by Planned Parenthood’s utter disregard for medical ethics, labeling the grisly operation, “Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Frankenstein wrongdoing.”

Planned Parenthood’s unconscionable acts are recorded and proven. But it will take a lot of pressure to bring consequences to bear. After these revelations, the first thing every public official should be asked is why a penny of taxpayer money is going to fund any part of Planned Parenthood’s work,” said Katie Short, Life Legal’s Vice-President for Legal Affairs.

Planned Parenthood celebrates as woman who killed baby with abortion drugs not charged with murder

Posted in Abortion pill, Cyotec, Planned Parenthood illegal activity with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 11, 2015 by saynsumthn


The nation’s top seller of abortions, Planned Parenthood said they are “glad” a murder charge has been dropped against a woman who killed her unborn child using an abortion pill she purchased online.

Kenlissia Jones

23-year-old Kenlissa Jones allegedly took the abortion pill, Cytotec, after she purchased it off the internet to abort he five-and-a-half-month-old baby boy.

The drug, also known as Misoprostol, is promoted by abortion advocates in home abortion remedies online.

According to reports, Jones got a neighbor to take her to the hospital, but she delivered the baby boy in the car on the way.

Dougherty County police say that Jones’ baby boy died after about half an hour at the hospital and originally charged Jones with malice murder and possession of a dangerous drug.

Now, according to the AP, Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards has dropped the murder charge and is pursuing a drug possession count instead.

He said Jones still faces a misdemeanor charge of possessing a dangerous drug, which Georgia law defines as any drug requiring a prescription.

In a tweet posted just after the decision became public, Planned Parenthood wrote, “We’re glad to see Kenlissia’s murder charges dropped—but alarmed at what can happen if safe abortion is inaccessible.”

As previously reported, abortion supporters originally came to Jones’ defense in a similar way as they rushed to defend Purvi Patel, an Indiana woman who was sentenced to 20 years in prison on feticide and neglect charges after she took abortion pills she had ordered to abort her roughly thirty (30) week pregnancy.

While Planned Parenthood says they are “alarmed at what can happen if safe abortion is inaccessible” they are blocking measures to tell women that they can reverse the affects of abortion pills to keep their babies.

The abortion business has recently filed a federal lawsuit to stop a new law in Arkansas which requires abortionists to notify their patients that the abortion pill can be reversed.

No Choice XSmall2

They join a litany of so-called pro-choicers who oppose the pro-life measure.

Mother paid abortion doc $25K to “euthanize” 36 week unborn baby

Posted in Late term abortion, Warren Hern with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2015 by saynsumthn

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.

Warren Hern late term abortion clinic

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!

Planned Parenthood: Miscarriages can be upsetting and tragic

Posted in Planned Parenthood Miscarriage with tags , , , , on March 2, 2015 by saynsumthn

Yes- you read the title collectedly, Planned Parenthood which admittedly kills over three hundred thousand abortions a year and counting wants women to know that miscarriages can be tragic.

The abortion giant, who sees an unborn child as non-human tells women, “When carrying a wanted pregnancy, its sudden loss can trigger a range of emotions. During this time, Planned Parenthood can help.”

How will they help. you ask?

We also do expectant management, or “watchful waiting,” says Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood says they will monitor a woman’s pregnancy during their miscarriage to make sure it resolves on its own.

What? They won’t give that little child about to die a push?

Planned Parenthood miscarriage

From their website:

    There is no “right” or “wrong” way to feel after having a miscarriage. For some people, it can be an upsetting and tragic experience. For others, it can be accompanied by a sense of relief. Some people have a more emotionally neutral reaction. Some people’s feelings encompass a seemingly contradictory collection of emotions, from relief to grief, and from anger to guilt. Everyone is different, and that includes their miscarriages and the feelings they have about them.

    Whatever your emotions are, give yourself permission to feel them — they are valid. You can also give yourself permission to experience changing or contradictory emotions. If you are suicidal, you can go to an emergency department, or call 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

    If you have a partner, recognize that he or she might experience the loss differently from you. It’s important to communicate your feelings to one another so you can give each other the support you both need. You also might seek out counseling, support groups, or ways to memorialize the baby you hoped to carry to term.

Another Planned Parenthood website says you may grieve over your blob of tissue – I mean miscarried unborn child:

    Give yourself permission to grieve this loss. Grief is a normal response to miscarriage, and it should not be made light of or denied.
    If you have a partner, understand that he or she may need to grieve the loss, too. Your partner may not express his or her emotions the same way you do. But trying to communicate your feelings and support to each other may help each of you cope.

    Give yourself time to heal from the loss of your pregnancy. The amount of time it will take is different for everyone.

Tragically, Planned Parenthood enjoys cashing in on all angles of pregnancy and life.

The day I saw abortion first hand

This week we enter the 42nd year of legalized abortion in the United States and I think back to the day I came up close and personal with abortion. The day I saw abortion victims first hand!

I have witnessed many things over the past thirty three years in this fight for the sanctity of human life in numerous states where I stood against child killing. Protests, police abuse, men dragging women into the abortion clinic, and even the funeral of a woman killed from legal abortion.

Her name was Carolina Gutierrez and she received such a serious infection by the legal abortion facility she visited that they had to amputate parts of her body to try and save her life. But, the infection won and Carolina and her unborn child became a statistic in the abortion battle.

I took these pictures with the permission of her family, while attending her funeral:

Caroline Gutierrez img169



The funeral was very emotional. Her story had been in the news for days and knowing the truth about the condition of the abortion clinics in my county caused me to be angry, especially, in light of the continued silence by abortion advocates when women die.

But nothing ever affected me more than seeing the real victims of legalized abortion up close, the broken bodies of the unborn babies.

We knew the abortion clinics could be throwing the aborted babies in the trash. So, how would we know which clinics were disposing the babies illegally? There was no way to know- we’d have to go to various ones and pull the trash to see.

That was a daunting task. But finally, our work paid off.

It was a Saturday afternoon when we approached a clinic located in a strip mall. The abortionist shared the dumpster with other business owners and we received permission to remove some discarded wood from the trash. Our real goal though, was the clinic’s trash- BINGO!

We grabbed several bags over a period of time, until, one day, we discovered that inside the bags were the containers that held babies aborted by suction abortion.

Aborted Baby Suction COntainers IMG_2922

Then came the task of opening up each and every gauze sac. I stilled myself to open each one , knowing what I might see – not knowing how I’d react to it.

Several did indeed look like ground meat.


To see their fragile little bodies so ground up that no distinguishable pieces remained was not entirely a surprise – after all – these were early abortions and babies that had been violently sucked out through a tube and into these jars.


Then…after carefully slicing one gauze sac, there it was. The fully formed arm of an aborted child.

Aborted baby arm 2

Then a leg, another leg, ribs, skull, etc…

As we rummaged through the bags we could see the medical records of the women whose children lay torn in pieces.

The cold-hearted abortionist had discarded the bodies of these dead babies in the trash along with their mother’s medical records with no care or concern for either.

At the bottom of the bag, we found a large foot which a pathologist later confirmed was from an unborn baby approximately 5 months gestation. The remaining body parts of that child were not in the bags we had.

Aborted baby foot 2

Aborted baby foot

As we meticulously went through the bags from that abortion clinic, I found myself feeling detached- I was looking squarely at the tiny remains of babies who suffered a horrific death and yet I had little emotion. After all, I had to finish the job I set out to do, I had to continue looking through the bags and opening each and every sac. Was I heartless? Uncaring? Unfeeling? Or was I being scientific and doing a job that had to be done?

I wrestled with this for a few days. And then….

The day arrived for the funeral for these little babies. We told no one who found them. In reality, those who attended did not care about the details – they cared only about giving these precious unborn children a decent burial. They wanted them remembered – their lives must count !


I attended the funeral like a pro, covering it for a pro-life magazine I wrote for at the time. As a journalist, I stood on stage watching people tearfully come forward and lay a rose – the symbol of life- on the small casket we purchased to place the tiny pieces of their broken bodies in.


One moment I was snapping pictures and the next….the next moment I was sobbing uncontrollably in the arms of an usher who was standing beside me on the stage. He must have seen a look in my eyes because his large torso was a comfort as I completely lost it and wept like a mother who just received the news that her beloved child was dead.

The tears and groans continued for a while and took me by surprise. After all, I was a professional, I was detached, I was looking at this from a journalists point of view – I was HUMAN!


As I write this today, I feel a lump in my throat as the memory of what I saw wells up inside me. I often think about the idea that abortion does not affect those who participate in it – the mothers, doctors, nurses, and clinic staff and I have to conclude that it absolutely does affect them.

As a young girl, I used to watch documentaries about the Nazi Holocaust and the Jews they slaughtered mercilessly.

Most people watched those films with great interest in the stories and facts they document.

But, for me, when I watched them, I recalled asking in the midst of my outrage, “ Who took those pictures?

I remember thinking that had those pictures never been taken, society would not be sitting here today in absolute horror of what took place.

I knew at that moment that I wanted to document the abortion holocaust, and by the guidance of God, in some small way, I have.

More on this here.
