It’s difficult to think about, talk about, or write about.
But we can’t ignore the latest ghastly revelation exposing the abortion industry – a sober reminder that abortion is a crime against humanity.
Pro-lifers from an organization called Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising were outside a late-term Washington DC abortion facility when an employee of Curtis Bay Medical Waste Services picked up two boxes containing the bodies of aborted babies destined for incineration. When asked by the pro-lifers to keep one, he said yes.
The contents included five children who had been victimized by late-term abortion.
Curtis Bay advertises that they incinerate “medical waste” including the bodies of unborn babies to generate electricity for the local community.
The babies’ remains were later turned over to the DC police with a request that an investigation be conducted including autopsies to determine whether or not federal laws were violated in the process of killing these children. Specifically, the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban and the Born Alive Infants Protection Act.
The late-term abortionist, Cesare Santangelo at the abortion center where the babies were killed had been caught previously on video stating that they do not provide care to babies who survive abortions, a violation of federal law.
It was no surprise that the DC police quickly dismissed the possibility that any laws were broken, and the medical examiner stated there were no plans to conduct an autopsy on the children.
This Friday I will join other pro-life leaders at a rally in front of the Washington, DC Medical Examiner’s Office where the babies are currently being held. We will call for an independent, unbiased investigation and autopsy of the victimized children.
Meet the Victims
Life Issues Institute will soon be airing a half-hour radio special on late-term abortion. One of my guests is Dr. Kathi Aultman a retired OBGYN who used to perform late-term abortions and is now a passionate advocate for life. Dr. Aultman weighed in on each of the babies.
Here are the children at the center of this tragedy, innocent babies who were brutally killed and discarded like human garbage to be burned to generate energy for the community.
Christopher X, a baby boy is estimated to be 28-32 weeks old. Dr. Aultman said, “He appears to be in the third trimester, near term and looks like he should have been in the nursery.” Based on the condition of his body, she believes he was likely dead when born/aborted.
Harriet, a baby girl estimated at 23-30 weeks old had a deep laceration on the back of her neck which is consistent with a partial-birth abortion.
Holly, a baby girl between 26-28 weeks old had experienced a particularly brutal and violent abortion (decapitation and severed body parts), likely a dilation and evacuation abortion, also referred to as dismemberment abortion.
Angel, a baby boy suffered the same fate as Holly. His body was also severely dismembered.
Phoenix, sex unknown. The child is in the fetal position inside an intact amniotic sac. Dr. Aultman estimates an age of late second or early third trimester and said that the child “May very well have been born alive and then left to die.”
According to medical experts, about half of all children aborted late in pregnancy survive the procedure. In our radio special, Dr. Altman said, “At least 45% to 50% of these babies will survive the induction process and then the abortionist is stuck with the dreaded complication of a live baby.”
Another radio guest, Irene Zamorano Archacki had a late-term abortion at 24½ weeks. Irene said the biggest lie ever told her was from the abortionist who said, “This is no big deal at all. It’ll be over very quick.” Irene said it was a big deal, “It has caused me grief, depression, and anxiety. Words cannot explain the trauma that my abortion has caused me.”
In two weeks, I’ll share more details with you on our compelling radio special that’s educating new audiences never before reached, and provide a link to the program and a wealth of resources and information.
The timing of this gruesome revelation could be very important. The US Supreme Court is about to rule on Dobb v Jackson Women’s Health Organization, legislation that would give states the authority to prevent such appalling human carnage. These five babies provide a dramatic reminder of what’s at stake.
Please keep the Court in your prayers.
For the babies,
