More than 1 million casualties versus more than 50 million
Last Monday, May 27, was Memorial Day. It is only appropriate that we remember and honor those brave men and women who have given their lives in defense of our country and our freedoms, some 1,171,539 since our country’s founding according to PolitiFact. However, it’s also appropriate also to remember and honor the more than 50 million pre-born babies who have been sacrificed on the altar of “choice” in just the last 40 years. The deaths of both these groups must not go unremembered.
Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection
Act Could Apply Nationwide
Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) has announced he will amend his bill, the “D.C. Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” (H.R. 1797) to apply nationwide. With this change, the “Unborn Child Protection Act” will be a national prohibition on aborting pain capable unborn children after twenty weeks gestation (post-fertilization age). This change is timely in light of the conviction of abortionist Kermit Gosnell and news reports of potentially similar gruesome late-term abortion providers around the country.
Cong. Franks explains, “The case of Kermit Gosnell shocked the sensibilities of millions of Americans. However, the crushing fact is that abortions on babies just like the ones killed by Kermit Gosnell have been happening hundreds of times per day, every single day, for the past 40 years. Indeed, let us not forget that, had Kermit Gosnell dismembered these babies before they had traveled down the birth canal only moments earlier, he would have, in many places nationwide, been performing an entirely legal procedure. If America truly understands that horrifying reality, hearts and laws will change.”
To date, 127 Representatives have signed on to co-sponsor this bill. Check here to see if your Representative is among them, and if not, please encourage him/her to co-sponsor by contacting Rep. Franks’ office.
D.C. Abortionist Caught on Video
with “Crock Pot” Solution
Likely a factor in Rep. Franks’ determination to protect the pre-born in D.C., another video in the Inhuman series by Live Action undercover investigators exposes a D.C. abortionist who discusses his willingness to violate federal law and murder the child should her baby be born alive. (The Constitution gives the Congress jurisdiction over D.C. in many areas, such as abortion regulations.) Not for the squeamish, this video shows the abortionist comparing the developing baby to crock pot contents, and also illustrates his lies about the baby’s size and viability by showing a comparable 24 weeks gestation newborn for whom all medical resources are being used.
Eyewitnesses Reveal that Texas Late-Term
Abortionist Mirrors Gosnell Horrors, Conditions
Lest we think that butcher Kermitt Gosnell was an isolated outlier, a new video just released shows similar murders of apparently born-alive babies at a Houston abortuary run by Dr. Douglas Karpen. Thanks to a Whistle Blower Reward program funded by Operation Rescue, three former employees have stepped forward to reveal the atrocities, as well as unsanitary conditions and fraudulent accounting procedures in this facility. These shocking practices are documented in a video produced by Life Dynamics here. WARNING: The photos shown on this link are gruesome and shocking. Viewer caution is advised. Encouraged by pro-life groups and Texas pro-life Republican Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, the Harris County District Attorney’s Office is proceeding with an investigation. Karpen operates three abortion clinics in the state – two in Houston and one in Dallas – and allegedly has performed illegal late-term abortions and killed babies born alive, which is a violation of the federal Born Alive Infant Protection Act.
More Butchers Likely Exist, Pro-Lifers
Coalesce to Expose Them
It is likely that more such murderers are practicing in other locations. Operation Rescue and Live Action continue to document atrocities with photos and videos, while other pro-life organizations help in different ways. For instance, Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life has “humanized” the Gosnell victims by naming them, rather than just referring to them as Baby Boy A, B, etc. Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director who has become a stalwart in the pro-life movement, has formed And Then There Were None, an organization which encourages abortion workers to leave their evil employment and helps provide financial support when they do so. Life Dynamics produces informative videos and here at RNC for Life, we provide information to our subscribers on many facets of the pro-life movement as well as vet and help elect pro-life candidates to Congress and the U.S. Senate. Each of these various organizations plays a unique part in the big pro-life picture.
