America's Silent Holocaust

 

According to the U.S. Census Bureau the average life expectancy at the beginning of the 20th century was 47.3 years. A century later that number had increased dramatically to 77.85 years due largely to the development of vaccinations and other treatments for deadly diseases. 

 

In the 20th century twelve deadly diseases were cured, and the incredible strides that science has made in the field of medicine in the past 50 years alone is hard to believe. Yet in spite of these many impressive advances in the medical field, since 1973 more than 55 million people in the United States (one billion two hundred eighty million people worldwide) have all succumbed to the same cause of death (*Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Guttmacher Institute). To better put that number of deaths in perspective: it is equal to one fifth of today’s world population, and it continues to claim lives on a scale that is simply staggering, having reached such epidemic proportions that it now claims 45 million lives worldwide every year. An escalating loss of human life on a mass scale! It is – Abortion. It is a very easy thing for advocates of Pro-Choice to have an “intellectual” support for abortion. However, as former abortion clinic worker, Judith Fetrow, from San Francisco very aptly states: “Abortion Clinic workers, feminists, and pro-choice advocates may say that they support a “woman’s right to choose”, but they will also quickly say that they do not want to see (the aborted) tiny hands and tiny feet. It is easy for a woman or man to have “intellectual” support from a distance of “right to choose” when they have never actually seen first-hand the carnage of abortion. There is a great difference!”

 

There is an atrocious war against the child being waged by those calling themselves “pro-choice.” The amount of innocent blood shed by the hands of these executioners far exceeds comprehension. It is very sad that proponents of abortion choose to classify God’s greatest and most precious gift–a child–as an intrusion and an inconvenience. Pro-Choice Action Network actually describes abortion as “a wonderful thing,” saying: “Abortion helps parents limit their families to the number of children they want. This strengthens and stabilizes the family unit. Therefore, pro-choice is pro-child and pro-family. Motherhood should never be a punishment for having sex. Forcing a child to be born just to punish its mother is the ultimate in child abuse. For many millions of women, abortion has meant getting on with their lives. Abortion is pro-family, pro-life, moral, and good.”– – – – This statement from Pro Choice Action Network is the epitome of conduct incongruous with principle. The heinous act of abortion is the cradle of despotism over the life of one denied the cradle of life itself! Abortion is the premeditated, deliberate, unprovoked murder of the completely innocent and defenseless whose simple desire (and right) is merely to realize the same gift as has been given to their murderer – the gift of life. The act of abortion is the highest form of egotism one can possess. Abortion is the “take no prisoners” mentality of being completely engrossed only in self at the cost of complete eradication of all rights of the innocent and defenseless. Abortion is a one-sided war against an unarmed opponent. It is the cold-blooded execution of an innocent child. It is “Murder” by the mother herself. THAT – ladies and gentlemen – is the REAL face of abortion! But as is so well demonstrated by pro abortionists, when one has a blatant lack of conscience (a lack of conscience is the result of a lack of knowing Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Saviour) it allows them to commit the most evil of acts without hesitation, with no guilt or remorse for anything they do, no matter how bad. While Pro-Choice Action Network says “Abortion is pro-family, pro-life, moral, and good,”  Dr. Anthony Levantino says this: “I am personally responsible for 75,000 abortions. This legitimizes my credentials to speak to you with some authority on the issue. I want the general public to know what the doctors know – that this is a person, this is a baby. That this is not some kind of blob of tissue. You feel like a paid assassin.”

 

Excuses always proceed from a guilty conscience and pro-choice is no exception. There is, inevitably, a completely empty quality to virtually every “excuse” given by pro-choice for their actions. Invariably they will turn to the tired and worn out phrase “it’s my body,” which is, in its entirety, a LIE! As a former pre-born myself, I know that I have never “been” my mother. I was not “her body.” I was in my mother but I had my own unique DNA, my own cardiovascular system and my own blood type.  No pre-born is its mother’s body. It is a human being, completely unique and separate. It is therefore, in all respects, totally un-true for a woman to say that the preborn child is “her body” and that it is her “right” to choose. It is a CHILD not a CHOICE. A persons right to choose something can never exceed someone else’s right to live. The right to choose is one that ceases immediately when that choice involves harming innocent human beings. This puts in proper perspective the pro-choice slogan “It’s my body” as nothing but an empty and desperate excuse for why they should not have to be held responsible for their murderous actions. And not only is it a very narrow minded excuse but there is nothing at all for them to back it up with. If the “it’s my body and I have the right to do what I want with it” excuse were an acceptable one then drugs would not be illegal. Prostitution would not be illegal. Public nudity would not be illegal. Public intoxication would not be illegal. Driving without wearing a seatbelt would not be illegal. Are these not laws telling her what to do with her body? Unfortunately for pro-choice the “it’s my body” excuse holds absolutely no weight whatsoever. Having established the fact that the baby is NOT the woman’s body but is, in every sense, a separate body with its own limbs organs and DNA there simply remains no room for argument to the contrary. It is not a mass, it is not a lump or anything else that pro-choice may want to call it because the truth is that it is a HUMAN BEING, and all of the mother’s choices must bow to the sanctity of that innocent human life. It is incomprehensible that any woman would actually fight to keep the ability to legally kill their unborn child as a claimed “right!"

 

Two classic examples of pro-choice’s long list of arguments used as an attempt to validate their unconscionable actions of murdering millions of tiny innocent babies are as follows: (1) “Abortion needs to be legal because of rape and incest.” And (2) “Abortion needs to be legal because for many women a live-birth would seriously put the mother’s life at risk.” Both statements, let it be known, are completely lacking in truth and fact. To begin with, as it regards their first argument and its underlying tone that a large percentage of abortions are because of rape and incest the actual truth is this: “Cases of rape or incest account for only 1% of abortions” Second: Less than one-tenth of one percent of abortions performed are because the birth may “put the mother’s health at risk.” After adding together the 1 percent of abortions attributed to rape and incest and the one tenth of one percent attributed to “health risks” this leaves nearly 99 percent of abortions being performed solely for the reason that the mother simply does not want the baby. And exactly what do abortionists and pro-choice supporters consider as a “viable” definition of something that would “put the mothers health at risk?” One example from Roe v. Wade of what may be considered as “harmful to a mother’s health” is – “the work of caring for a child.” (Sources: *The Guttmacher Institute / Abort73 December 13, 2012).Staunch abortion advocate Hillary Clinton said this: “I have met thousands and thousands of pro-choice men and women. I have never met anyone who is pro-abortion.” The actual truth, Mrs. Clinton, is that there are indeed millions of pro-abortionists for as we have just seen, it is an undisputed fact that nearly all women who have an abortion do so for convenience than for any other reason and this, Mrs. Clinton, is most certainly “pro-abortion.” The United States Declaration of Independence declares that all men are endowed with certain inalienable rights, and that “among these are the right to life…!”  Either we subscribe to the Constitutional creed which says that God endowed us with the right to life, or, we subscribe to the abortion creed which says that those rights are null and void as far as the child is concerned and are, instead, at the whimsy of the mother to determine whether their victim will live or die and whether or not she will “permit” the child its God given right to life.

 

The aforementioned “Pro Abortion” organization have on their site an article which they claim “completely refutes all common misconceptions about abortion.” It opens by asserting that“There is no scientific consensus as to when human life begins. Personhood at conception is a religious belief, not a provable biological fact.” As one would expect, the entirety of the article consists of a complete and utter lack of knowledge regarding the actual “facts” behind the statements that they make. Clearly they do not fact-check their own statements, or, more likely, they intentionally ignore the facts. Either way, it is a clear indication that the pro-choice are in dire need of being properly  educated with the actual, indisputable "truths" regarding abortion and today we are going to kindly provide them with that education. 

 

Let’s begin by looking once again at their statement; “There is no scientific consensus as to when human life begins. Personhood at conception is a religious belief, not a provable biological fact.” Really? No scientific consensus? How about this……..Some of the world’s most prominent scientists and physicians testified to a U.S. Senate committee that “human life begins at conception:” A United States Senate Judiciary Subcommittee invited experts to testify on the question of when life begins. All of the quotes from the following experts come directly from the official government record of their testimony….

 

Dr. Alfred M. Bongioanni, professor of pediatrics and obstetrics at the University of Pennsylvania, stated: “I have learned from my earliest medical education that human life begins at the time of conception. I submit that human life is present throughout this entire sequence from conception to adulthood and that any interruption at any point throughout this time constitutes a termination of human life. I am no more prepared to say that these early stages [of development in the womb] represent an incomplete human being than I would be to say that the child prior to the dramatic effects of puberty is not a human being. This is human life at every stage.”

 

Dr. Jerome LeJeune, professor of genetics at the University of Descartes in Paris, was the discoverer of the chromosome pattern of Down syndrome. Dr. LeJeune testified to the Judiciary Subcommittee, “after fertilization has taken place a new human being has come into being.” He stated that “this is no longer a matter of opinion, it is plain evidence!“

 

Professor Hymie Gordon, Mayo Clinic stated: “By all the criteria of modern molecular biology, life is present from the moment of conception.” 

 

Professor Micheline Matthews-Roth, Harvard University Medical School, stated: “It is incorrect to say that biological data cannot be decisive. It is scientifically correct to say that an individual human life begins at conception. Our laws, one function of which is to help preserve the lives of our people, should be based on accurate scientific data.”

 

Dr. Watson A. Bowes, University of Colorado Medical School testified: “The beginning of a single human life is from a biological point of view a simple and straightforward matter that the beginning is conception. This straightforward biological fact should not be distorted to serve sociological, political, or economic goals.” A prominent physician points out that at these Senate hearings, Pro-abortionists, though invited to do so, failed to produce even a single expert witness who would specifically testify that life begins at any point other than conception or implantation.Many other prominent scientists and physicians have likewise affirmed with certainty that human life begins at conception: Ashley Montague, a geneticist and professor at Harvard and Rutgers, affirms unequivocally, “The basic fact is simple: life begins not at birth, but at conception.”

 

Pro Choice Action Network says of those who are pro-life, “Virtually all of you are devout Christians. We’re not stupid. We suspect you’re trying to impose your religious beliefs on everyone through anti-abortion laws. We honestly believe this is wrong, and besides, we can’t take seriously the words of religious fanatics.” In response to this particular statement I would first like to say “Thank You” to Pro Choice Action Network for here recognizing and openly admitting that abortion is the antithesis of absolutely every moral principle given to man by God. Second – in regard to the statement “we can’t take seriously the words of religious fanatics,” may I then suggest that you take seriously the words of one of your own…. Specifically, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, an internationally known obstetrician and gynecologist who was a cofounder of what is now the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL). He owned and operated what was at the time the largest abortion clinic in the western hemisphere. He was directly involved in over sixty thousand abortions. Dr. Nathanson’s study of developments in the science of fetology and his use of ultrasound to observe the unborn child in the womb led him to the conclusion that he had made a horrible mistake. Resigning from his lucrative position, Nathanson wrote in the New England Journal of Medicine that he was “deeply troubled by his increasing certainty that he had in fact presided over 60,000 deaths.” In his film, “The Silent Scream,” Nathanson later stated, “Modern technologies have convinced us that beyond question the unborn child is simply another human being, another member of the human community, indistinguishable in every way from any of us.” Dr. Natahnsen also stated that abortion is, “the most atrocious holocaust in the history of the United States.” Dr. Nathanson wrote Aborting America to inform the public of the realities behind the abortion rights movement of which he had been a primary leader. At the time Dr. Nathanson was an atheist. His conclusions were not even remotely religious, but squarely based on the biological facts.

 

Dr. Landrum Shettles was for twenty-seven years attending obstetrician-gynecologist at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York. Shettles was a pioneer in sperm biology, fertility, and sterility. He is internationally famous for being the discoverer of male – and female-producing sperm. His intrauterine photographs of pre-born children appear in over fifty medical textbooks. Dr. Shettles states, “I oppose abortion. I do so, first, because I accept what is biologically manifest that human life commences at the time of conception and, second, because I believe it is wrong to take innocent human life under any circumstances. My position is scientific, pragmatic, and humanitarian.”

 

The International Symposium on Abortion and the Official Senate report on Senate Bill 158, the “Human Life Bill,” summarized the issue this way: “Physicians, biologists, and other scientists agree that conception marks the beginning of the life of a human being, a being that is alive and is a member of the human species. There is overwhelming agreement on this point in countless medical, biological, and scientific writings.” {Thus is effectively obliterated Pro Choice Action Network’s statement that “There is no scientific consensus as to when human life begins”}.

Pro Choice Action Network also states, “Most people are pro-choice.” Again, completely un-true in every respect. As it regards Canada, (home of Pro Choice Action Network), at a time when there are no legal restrictions on abortion at any stage of pregnancy, a recent Canadian poll released by LifeCanada today shows 72 percent of Canadians want to see more legal protections in place for unborn children. As well, a Gallup poll in December 2001 asked Canadian respondents their view on abortion. The results showed that only 32% of Canadians believed abortion should be legal in all circumstances (down from 37% in 2000), while those who thought abortions should be illegal in all circumstances went up 9% from 2000). In fact there is and always has been very strong opposition among Canadians against abortion. In 1989, the government introduced a much stricter bill in the House of Commons. If enacted, it would ban all abortions unless a doctor ruled the woman’s life or health would be threatened. Anyone found in violation of the law could be imprisoned for up to two years. In the Senate however there was a tie vote on the bill and Under the rules of the Senate a tie meant the measure was defeated. The legislation was never re-introduced and it is only the fact that no subsequent government has re-visited this decision that has led to Canada having no abortion law whatsoever, and not (as pro choice action network claims) because “most people are pro-choice.” As it regards America, the real truth is that the number of Americans who now call themselves “pro-choice” is at a record low of 41%, having fallen 26% since 1995 (12% in just the past sixteen months alone) while during that same period those identifying themselves as “Pro-Life” has increased by 50%. Why this drastic change? Because many are awakening to the reality of the true horror and savageness of abortion. {SOURCES: *Steven Ertelt | Ottawa, Canada | LifeNews.com | 10/31/11 *Gallup May 23, 2012 *Washington Post May 29, 2012….*ABC News May 23, 2012}.

 

Out of sheer desperation, the abortion industry and its advocates seek to defend and justify their actions with one hard-hearted excuse after another in a fruitless attempt to avoid the true depravity of what they are doing and, incredibly, even present what they do as “admirable.” In an audacious act of self praise, Pro-Choice Action Network says:“It is amazing that anti-choicers are so superficial that they can’t even see or acknowledge our humanity.” ……..Humanity???? Such was the “humanity” offered by Hitler to the Jews as he slaughtered more than six million. Such was the “humanity” Mao Ze-Dong offered to his own as he slaughtered 45 million Chinese peasants. The same “humanity” Joseph Stalin offered to the 4 million he slaughtered. Pro-choice, the world does not need your kind of “humanity.” Humanity is characterized by compassion and tenderness. Having the audacity to say that the world should recognize the mass murder of hundreds of millions of helpless babies as “humanity” is an unfathomable depth of wickedness. Yet, such statements have become the norm for the pro-choice movement whose pioneer, Margaret Sanger of planned parenthood, said of abortion, (QUOTE) “The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. “We are failing to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying . . . a dead weight of human waste . . . an ever-increasing spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.” Psychologists tell us that these are the thought patterns of a mind obsessed with murder. Hence – abortion!

 

Few people are aware that 40 percent of all reported abortions committed in the United States occur at a Planned Parenthood clinic, making it by far the largest abortion provider in America. As head of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Cecile Richards presided over the grisly death by abortion of 1.5 million tiny, innocent babies from the time she took the helm at Planned Parenthood Federation of America in 2006 through 2010. She tucked an estimated $743 million in blood money into PPFA bank accounts for her efforts. Everything about the abortion industry, pro-choice, and planned parenthood fails to tell the real story. One of their “dirty little secrets” among many is that since 1997 emergency contraception has been made available under Title X. “Emergency contraception” is pro-abortion code for abortion-inducing drugs or abortion pills like Plan B, Ella, and others. This is one of the most hidden statistics of the abortion industry. Abortions caused by abortion pills are not reported on any medical chart or to any government agency. We do know, however, how many abortion pills Planned Parenthood dispenses. Planned Parenthood’s last report notes that it gave out 1,461,816 “emergency contraception kits,” i.e. abortion pills, in a year – Of course, you would never know this by listening to or reading anything that pro-choice puts out. The mountainous supply of evidence against them clearly exposes pro-choice as an organization built entirely upon deception, fabrications, and outright lies.(Sources: *ACLJ 2012, *LifeNews Washington, DC 2012, *LifeNews.com 8/16/12).

 

Continuing on….PCAN also states it to be a “complete myth” that Abortion causes psychological damage to women. Once again, this is not even remotely close to the actual facts which are this:  In a study of post-abortion patients only 8 weeks after their abortion, researchers found that 44% complained of nervous disorders, 36% had experienced sleep disturbances, 31% had regrets about their decision, and 11% had been prescribed psychotropic medicine by their family doctor. Women who have had abortions are significantly more likely than others to subsequently require admission to a psychiatric hospital. Women who have undergone post-abortion counseling report over 100 major reactions to abortion. Among the most frequently reported are: depression, loss of self-esteem, self-destructive behavior, sleep disorders, memory loss, sexual dysfunction, chronic problems with relationships, dramatic personality changes, anxiety attacks, guilt and remorse, difficulty grieving, increased tendency toward violence, chronic crying, difficulty concentrating, flashbacks, loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities and people, and difficulty bonding with later children. Among the most worrisome of these reactions is the increase of self-destructive behavior among aborted women. In a survey of over 100 women who had suffered from post-abortion trauma, fully 80 percent expressed feelings of “self-hatred.” In the same study, 49 percent reported drug abuse and 39 percent began to use or increased their use of alcohol. Approximately 14 percent described themselves as having become “addicted” or “alcoholic” after their abortions. In addition, 60 percent reported suicidal ideation, with 28 percent actuallyattempting suicide, of which half attempted suicide two or more times.

As well, Pro Choice Action Network vehemently states that Abortion being dangerous and medically risky is “also a myth.” Let’s once again look at the actual facts shall we?….

 

Approximately 10% of women undergoing elective abortion will suffer immediate complications, of which approximately one-fifth are considered life threatening. Immediate health risks include but are not limited to:

 

•Death – Women who abort are approximately four times more likely to die in the following year than women who carry through with the pregnancy.

•Uterine perforation

•Cervical lacerations

•Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)

•Endometritis (Infection)

There are a great many long-term health risks as well.

Pro Choice Action Network continues with its list of “abortion myths” by saying it is also a complete myth that the baby is capable of feeling intense pain when it is being brutally torn apart, having its head crushed and ripped off during abortion. “The brain structures and nerve-cell connections (says pro choice action network) that characterize the thinking and feeling parts of the brain are not completed until between the 7th and 8th months of gestation. Only after 30 weeks do the brain waves show patterns of waking consciousness when pain can be perceived.” Here we have yet another classic example of Pro Choice’s never ending list of blatant intentional lies. Another instance of deliberate disinformation in an attempt to keep the real truth from reaching the public. The actual facts are as follows:

 

 

Only 7 Weeks after Fertilization: The baby’s muscles and nerves begin working together. The cerebrum has divided into hemispheres.

 

 

Only 9 Weeks after Fertilization: More than 90% of the body structures found in a full-grown human are present. The pre-born human moves body parts without any outside stimulation.

 

 

Only 10 Weeks after Fertilization: All parts of the brain and spinal cord are formed. The heart pumps blood to every part of the body.

 

 

And Only 18 Weeks after Fertilization: The portion of the brain responsible for functions such as reasoning and memory (the cerebral cortex) has the same number of nerve cells as a full-grown adult.

 

 

{Following are the facts about human development. They are organized according to the number of weeks since fertilization.}

 

 

Fertilization: Fertilization normally takes place within one day of intercourse but can occur up to six days later. At fertilization, the genetic composition of a preborn human is formed. This genetic information determines gender, eye color, hair color, facial features.

 

3 Weeks after Fertilization: The eyes and spinal cord are visible and the developing brain has two lobes.

 

4 Weeks after Fertilization: The heart is beating and a circulatory system is in place. The portion of the brain associated with consciousness (the cerebrum) and internal organs such as the lungs are beginning to develop and can be identified.

 

7 Weeks after Fertilization: Muscles and nerves begin working together. The cerebrum has divided into hemispheres.

 

9 Weeks after Fertilization: More than 90% of the body structures found in a full-grown human are present. The preborn human moves body parts without any outside stimulation.

 

10 Weeks after Fertilization: All parts of the brain and spinal cord are formed. The heart pumps blood to every part of the body.

 

12 Weeks after Fertilization: Electrical signals from the nervous system are measurable. After an abortion, efforts to suckle will sometimes be observed.

 

14 Weeks after Fertilization: The preborn human makes coordinated movements of the arms and legs.

 

16 Weeks after Fertilization: The preborn human makes eye movements.

 

 

18 Weeks after Fertilization: The portion of the brain responsible for functions such as reasoning and memory (the cerebral cortex) has the same number of nerve cells as a full-grown adult.

 

20 Weeks after Fertilization: The preborn human sleeps, awakes and can hear sounds.

(Up through approximately this point in time, according to the Supreme Court’s rulings in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, a pregnant woman can abort at will.)

 

 

24 Weeks after Fertilization: The blink-startle reflex and taste buds are functional. The grip is strong enough to hold onto an object that is moving up and down. If born and given specialized care, the survival rate is more than 80%.

 

 

28 Weeks after Fertilization: If born and given specialized care, the survival rate is more than 95%.38 Weeks after Fertilization: Average point in time when humans are born.

 

At any point prior to birth, according to the Supreme Court’s rulings in Roe v. Wade, Doe v. Bolton, and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, a pregnant woman can abort to preserve her “health.” One example from Roe v. Wade of what may be considered harmful to a mother’s health is "the work of caring for a child." (Just Facts, September 24, 2008. Revised 8/4/12).

Pro choice action network freely and openly states, “A fetus is certainly alive.” The dictionary defines ‘alive’ as “being in existence, force, or operation.” With this statement pro-choice have further discredited themselves. However, they quickly attempt a backtracking of their own statement by saying, “but this reasoning can apply to any living thing, including worms and germs.” As if their complete disregard for human life were not enough, they are now comparing an innocent baby to a “worm” and a “germ.” “Why shed futile tears over spilt milk….?” (states pro chopice action network). “Instead, let’s focus on protecting the rights and improving the quality of life of (women)….anti-choice movement has chipped away at a woman’s right to control her life….Laws against abortion don’t stop abortion. They only kill and maim women, and turn them into criminals….” (Now, apparently, “not” killing the baby is responsible for turning women into hardened criminals). “The practice of abortion (they continue saying) is unrelated to the status of the fetus – it hinges totally on the aspirations and needs of women.” Here, once again by their own admission, pro-choice has stated that they do not care in the least about the life of the baby. Their only concern is with preventing that baby (at the cost of its very life) from “interfering” with the woman’s self-centered, selfish “ambitions and aspirations.” With their every word Pro-choice clearly proves to the world that they are profoundly anti-life. The more pro-choice speaks, the bigger the hole they dig for themselves.

 

 

Now we are going to fully draw back the curtain and reveal the raw, real, uncensored abominations that take place every day in the world of abortion, all of which pro-choice so desperately wants to keep hidden from the public and covered in a shroud of secrecy:…. An abortion clinic in New York proudly advertises that they are “able to offer patients the convenience of completing a second trimester abortion.” A Michigan abortion clinic says in their brochure – “We promise to treat you with dignity and respect. We provide abortion services between 15-24 weeks through evacuation (of the pregnancy). We promise that during your time with us, you will be treated with tender care and respect as our doctors take gentle medical and surgical steps to remove fetal life support and cause fetal death before removing the pregnancy.” (This clinic actually offers on-line “abortion coupons”). Another abortion clinic states on their website that their “services” include “Late-Term Abortion via intracardiac injections to stop the fetal heart beat on late second and third trimester pregnancies.” {To avoid free advertising of their “murder-for-hire services,” the names and website addresses of these abortion clinics are being withheld).

 

One abortion doctor from Colorado very casually describes his “work” this way: “The procedure changes significantly at 21 weeks because fetal tissues become much more cohesive and difficult to dismember. A long curved Mayo scissors may be necessary to decapitate and dismember the fetus. The aggregate fetal tissue is weighted, then the following fetal parts are measured, foot length, knee to heel length, and biparietal diameter.” A colleague of this doctor adds this: “We (the doctors) are doing a destructive process. Arms, legs, chests come out in the forceps. It’s not a sight for everybody.”

 

 

From “Skeletons in the Closet”, 1990, comes this first-hand eye-witness statement:“They took that little baby that was making little sounds and moving and kicking, and set it on that table in a cold, stainless steel bowl. Every time I would look over while we were repairing the incision in uterus and finishing the Caesarean, I would see that little person moving in that bowl. And it kicked and moved less and less, of course, as time went on. I can remember going over and looking at the baby when we were done with the surgery and the baby was still alive. You could see the chest was moving and the heart was beating, and the baby would try to take a little breath, and it really hurt inside, and it began to educate me as to what abortion really was.” 

 

An author from Salon Magazine describes two abortions they witnessed. In the first case, the doctor decided to do a D & E abortion, where the baby is torn apart in utero: “Once that decision was made, the resident inserted a long-handled metal instrument into the woman’s uterus — called a Bierer forcep — and began what the doctor called “blind” pulling. I watched as the doctor instructed the resident to “Stop and feel where you are! Put your hand on the abdomen. No, you’re not getting it! Watch out! Don’t get the cervix.” Time after time, the resident plunged the Bierer into the woman’s womb, removing a leg, then an arm, then the liver, then the placenta, which the doctor ranted about, because this can make the fetal head extraction more difficult. The last step that I saw was the collapse of the skull and the removal of the brain matter.”

 

The second abortion was a Dilitation and Extraction abortion, also known as a Partial Birth Abortion, in which the baby is partially delivered and removed intact. He describes what he saw: “The doctor, using only his fingers, pulled a foot into view and then another. “OK,” he said, “now I have the sacrum.” Letting the resident take over, the doctor instructed: “Pull down. Down! Not Up! Down! All right, now the shoulder, then twist. Then the other shoulder.”… At this point, only a few minutes had passed. The fetus was perfectly limp, its tiny feet and hands flaccid as they immediately darkened from oxygen depletion…Once the entire fetal body was out of the womb, the doctor quickly made an incision into the base of the skull that remained lodged against the woman’s cervix and inserted a suction catheter into the perforation to drain the brain matter and allow the full removal of the fetus. The placenta came next and the doctors finished suctioning the uterus to drain any remaining blood.”Dr. Anthony Levantino says this: “I am personally responsible for 75,000 abortions. This legitimizes my credentials to speak to you with some authority on the issue. I want the general public to know what the doctors know – that this is a person, this is a baby. That this is not some kind of blob of tissue. You feel like a paid assassin.” (Dr. Levantino no longer performs abortions).

 

 

Dr. Joseph Randall in Atlanta, Georgia estimates he performed 32,000 abortions. He states, “After the operation you have to reassemble that baby – arms, legs, head, chest – everything. That’s when it got rough, even for old-timers like me.When you looked at an ultrasound, there was no mistaking that this was a baby. Ladies who came in for mid-trimester (four to six months of pregnancy) abortions were shielded from the images. Several nurses quit. They would bond with the baby they saw on the screen; they couldn’t take it.” (Dr. Randall no longer performs abortions).

 

 

Dr. Maureen Paul, abortionist, says regarding the abortions she performs: “What I prefer to do is to just reach in with my forceps and collapse the skull and bring the fetus out intact.”

 

 

Phillip Bennett, Abortionist, states “I dismember the fetus – pull it apart limb from limb – and remove it piece by piece and two hours later I’ve forgotten them.”

 

Dr. Crist, Planned Parenthood’s chief abortion physician in Missouri cited instances when 9- or 10-week-old fetuses are suctioned intact into the suction bottle. “Sometimes, they’re still alive, with their hearts visibly beating.”

 

 

Dr. Larry Carhart, late term abortionist said this: “You certainly know that you will start with a living fetus and that it will be dead by the end of the procedure. But when you start a second-trimester abortion, you don’t know when the fetus will die.”

 

 

In testimony in St. Louis Circuit Court, an abortionist stated that “it is not uncommon for second-trimester fetuses to leave the womb feet-first, intact and with their hearts still beating. He stated that sometimes he crushes their skulls to get the fetuses out. Other times, he dismembers them.”

 

 

Several Reporters spent a day at an abortion clinic in Wisconsin observing the doctor “at work.” They described one of the abortion procedures this way: “At one point, he (the doctor) picked up a tiny foot and placed it against a ruler. “Thirteen millimeters,” he announced. Later he held a tiny head.”

 

Abortion clinic worker “Celia” discusses late term abortion. Her clinic injects Digoxin into the hearts of the babies before dismembering them: “It’s weird because you’re going to see the sono. You’re going to see the heart beating – little hearts, you know – and then, all of a sudden, you’re going to put this cardiac medicine in it to make it stop – to kill it.”

 

 

One time clinic worker Paula Sutcliffe states: “I found much distress in the clinic, but it involved not only the women. I saw the pain of the babies who were born burned from the saline solution used for late-term abortions. I saw the bits of feet, bits of hands, the mangled heads and bodies of the little people.”

 

 

A Charlotte Observer reporter saw a considerable amount of fetal tissue removed from the dumpster adjacent to the clinic. “The remains, deposited in 10 to 15 large plastic trash bags, included readily identifiable body parts. Among them were a left forearm and hand, a left leg and foot, a right forearm and hand, part of a right foot, and a spinal column and rib cage. In several cases the remains had been dumped in trash bags along with ordinary garbage: coffee grounds, cigarette butts and remnants of chicken dinners.”

 

 

B.D. Colen, a reporter for Newsday tells: “I had spent a week in a clinic, watching first trimester abortions and interviewing the physicians doing them, the women having them, and the counselors working with those women. None of that prepared me for what I saw that sunnyafternoon in a sterile, white procedure room at The Washington Hospital Center…After dilating, or opening, the cervix, the physician used a curette, the gynecological version of a sharpened spoon, to cut the fetus into pieces which he would then remove with forceps. A large petri dish sat on an instrument stand to the right of the girl’s feet,….the physician would tap his forceps on the edge of the dish – and into the muck would drop a foot, or a hand, or a piece of rib cage.”

 

 

One Planned Parenthood clinic director describes viewing babies aborted by prostaglandin (a hormone that induces labor) saying “The doctors would remove the fetus while performing hysterotomies and lay in on the table, where it would squirm until it died.”

 

 

Andre Winston, who delivered the aborted babies to the incinerator to be burned said this: “You could see the babies with the hands and the feet and the heads and everything, and you can tell what sex, a boy or a girl. Really sometimes it gets nasty. They are so big sometimes.

 

 

One medical student states: “I can remember…the resident doctor sitting down, putting the tube in, and removing the contents. I saw the bloody material coming down the plastic tube, and it went into a big jar. My job afterwards was to go and undo the jar, and to see what was inside. I didn’t have any views on abortion; I was in a training program, and this was a brand new experience. I was going to get to see a new procedure and learn. I opened the jar and took the little piece of stockingnette stocking and opened the little bag. The resident doctor said ‘Now put it on the blue towel and check it out. We want to see if we got it all.’ I thought, ‘that’ll be exciting-hands on experience looking at tissue.’ I opened the sock up and put it on the towel, and there were parts of a person in there.”

 

 

Pro choice action network says also that “it is not true that many women are coerced into having abortions, that abortion clinics push women to have abortions, and that abortion clinics don’t inform women about alternatives to abortion.”  Is there any truth to their statement? Let’s see…. 

 

Nina Whitten, chief secretary at a Dallas abortion clinic under Dr. Curtis Boyd says this: “I was trained by a professional marketing director in how to sell abortions over the telephone. He took every one of our receptionists, nurses, and anyone else who would deal with people over the phone through an extensive training period. The object was, when the girl called, to hook the sale so that she wouldn’t get an abortion somewhere else, or adopt out her baby, or change her mind. We were doing it for the money.” Abortion is a billion dollar a year industry. Various sources place the average cost for a first trimester abortion at $450. From that point on prices skyrocket with a 2nd trimester abortion costing up to $3000 with a whopping 13% of abortion providers offering their services at 24 weeks. (Sources: *Abort73, abortion for profit, September 2010, *infoplease.) Pro-abortionists and organizations such as pro choice action network who (amazingly) argue that abortion is good and necessary for a healthy society, are defending an institution which is making them very wealthy. According to planned parenthood, an abortion “pill” will cost up to $800.00. On the flip side, those who are against the murder of innocent babies do so at great financial cost. There is no “pay-off “on the “pro-life” side. Think about it. Those who support abortion are growing rich off of its ready availability while those who oppose abortion are losing money for their efforts to save innocent lives. Who, then, is more likely to be honest and forthright about the issue at hand? Who is more likely to be motivated by principle and who is more likely to be motivated by profit? Simply put, for the abortion industry, all of those babies are worth more dead than alive.

 

 

Judy W., former office manager of the second largest abortion clinic in El Paso, Texas says “If a woman we were counseling expressed doubts about having an abortion, we would say whatever was necessary to persuade her to abort immediately.” ……..”Sometimes we lied (says Kathy Sparks). A girl might ask what her baby was like at a certain point in the pregnancy: Was it a baby yet? Even as early as 12 weeks a baby is totally formed, he has fingerprints, turns his head, fans his toes, feels pain. But we would say ‘It’s not a baby yet. It’s just tissue, like a clot.” — “The Conversion of Kathy Sparks” by Gloria Williamson, Christian Herald Jan 1986 p 28……..“They [the women] are never allowed to look at the ultrasound because we knew that if they so much as heard the heart beat, they wouldn’t want to have an abortion.” — {Dr. Randall ‘Pro-Choice 1990: Skeletons in the Closet” by David Kuperlain and Mark Masters in Oct “New Dimensions” magazine.}

 

 

This is the “real” world of abortion ladies and gentlemen. This is the real world of “a woman’s right to choose.” This is the murder syndicate that those who support abortion are so proud to be a part of. This is the true face of the slaughter house known as “pro-choice.”

 

 

In the last 28 YEARS enemies from outside of the United States (terrorists) have murdered 4,573 Americans on US soil. In the last 28 DAYS enemies from within the United States (abortionists) have murdered 112,000 Americans on US soil.Try as they might (and they will continue to try, of that you can be sure) nothing that the pro-choice, feminists, liberals, government, or president say will ever erase the truth that abortion is murder pure and simple. As is the mother herself, that precious life that you carry inside of you is an illustration of God’s greatest creation and It is up to God and God alone (not you) if we die and how we die. The same applies to the baby in the womb – it belongs to God.

 

 

Pro-choice can keep on lying about the truth of abortion (and they will), but they can neither do nor say anything that can change that truth. They can rebel against the truth, but they can certainly do nothing to abolish it. Spite and evil by pro-abortionists may criticize the truth, their ignorance may ridicule, mock and speak against it, but in the end, there it is, and there it will forever remain….The Truth! Human life legislation ending this tragedy will some day pass the Congress, and as Christians you and I must never rest until it does.

 

 

God bless you,
