News of more post-abortive killings

By Tom Quiner

I wanted to cry and vomit at the same time.

I’m still shaking as I write this.  I looked at a photo of another baby killed after being born alive.

The human abortion industry calls this “women’s reproductive health.” Dr. Kermit Gosnell now knows the state calls it murder. However, the baby I’m looking at didn’t die at the hands of Dr. Gosnell, he died in Douglas Karpen’s human abortion clinic in Houston, Texas.

Don’t worry, I’m not posting this photo on Quiner’s Diner. I can’t bring myself to do it. I know that many of my allies in the pro human life movement believe that abortion can only be stopped when people actually see the carnage of abortion with their own eyes.

They’re probably right.

Only it’s not going to happen on this blog. Sorry.

It’s too painful.

The photo I saw was taken by informants at the clinic with their cell phone camera. They were posted at the If you support laws that allow human abortion, please click on the link. Take a look at what you are sanctioning, if you can stomach it.

The photos were released by Operation Rescue. Here is how their president, Troy Newman, described the content of the photos:

“The photos show babies that are huge, with gashes in their necks, indicating that these babies were likely born alive, then killed, just as Kermit Gosnell did at his ‘House of Horrors’ clinic in Philadelphia. In fact, there are numerous similarities between Karpen and the Gosnell case, including the disregarding of complaints by the authorities that allowed both men to continue their illegal operations.”

One of the informants, Deborah Edge, who was a surgical assistant in the clinic, described what she saw:

“When he did an abortion, especially an over 20 week abortion, most of the time the fetus would come completely out before he cut the spinal cord or he introduced one of the instruments into the soft spot of the fetus, in order to kill the fetus. I thought, well, it’s an abortion you know, that’s what he does, but I wasn’t aware that it was illegal…Most of the time we would see him where the fetus would come completely out and of course, the fetus would still be alive.”

Although I’m glad Ms. Edge has come forward with this information, aren’t you disturbed by this quote? She said she didn’t know if this was illegal.

Who cares if it is legal or illegal? It is wrong, because a human being is being killed. A so-called doctor slits the throat of a baby. This is an immoral act no matter what the law says.

Here’s the takeaway: Gosnell is not alone.

More Gosnells are out there. They may have nicer looking clinics, but the same human holocaust is taking place.

Born alive babies are being killed in the name of human abortion.

Live Action Films has heard human abortionists admit it.

Operation Rescue has even more evidence.

They’ve learned the killings are happening in Pennsylvania, New York, Washington D.C., Arizona, Texas, and who knows how many other states?

Dr. Kermit Gosnell may have been sentenced to life in prison. But his acolytes are thriving.

    With the Gosnell guilty verdict, I wonder how many of these abortion doctors and their staff are scared. I’m sure they must know that there is going to be inspections by state and more leaks of info like the one above from staff. The staff all over are now wondering, “Is this murder?” Praying.

      I’m praying with you. Thanks for writing.

    Hopefully, one day, all viable pregnancies will end one way: with the blessed birth of a child.

    IMHO, abortion should only be allowed when it threatens the life of the mother. At that point, there is no good choice to make, but the woman has the right to self defense. These cases are so rare, though, they barely worth mentioning

    So painful to see! Such cold, thoughtless, mindless, soulless cruelty to the most innocent.

      Well said: soulless cruelty.
