Report Illegal Abortions Says Operation Rescue

After a jury found Kermit Gosnell guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies and involuntary manslaughter in the death of a woman seeking an abortion, he waived his right to an appeal in order to avoid the death penalty. He now will spend the rest of his life in prison.

That might have been the end of the sensational story of the gruesome activities of abortionists who perform so-called late-term abortions. After all, according to the propagandistic documentary After Tiller, which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, with the death of George Tiller, there are now “only four abortionists in America who perform late-term abortions.

But, as Jill Stanek wrote at (5/17/13) “there are way more than four,” and we’re now learning of one in Texas who murdered born-alive babies in ways that are even more brutal than Gosnell’s. Stanek says, “Three former employees of late-term abortionist Douglas Karpen of Houston, Texas, have come forward, with photographic and video evidence that he murdered born babies in heinous ways and also committed abortions far beyond the legal limit.”

The three women took action to report the illegal abortions after receiving a postcard from Operation Rescue, which has sent cards to every abortion center in the country with a picture of a baby whose neck had been snipped juxtaposed with a picture of Kermit Gosnell. The bottom of the card reads, “Don’t go to jail for something your employer is doing or told you to do.”  It also gives contact information for Operation Rescue and offers a $25,000 reward for information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of an abortionist who is breaking the law.

The three women who reported the activities of Douglas Karpen are now connected with attorneys at Alliance Defending Freedom, who helped them contact authorities in Texas.

We can pray that more workers at abortion facilities, most of whom are women, will contact those in the pro-life community who can put them in contact with lawyers and police authorities, and who will also help them find forgiveness and healing for their roles abortions by introducing them to the One who is the Help of the helpless and the Hope of the hopeless. As Matthew 12:20 says, Jesus will never break a bruised reed or quench a smoking flax. He has promised, “the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out” (John 6:37).

Open Adoption Option

This week I will have the privilege to once again visit the Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach (APO) center in College Station, Texas.   The Executive Director, Kim Schams, is an individual whom I admire deeply for her daily, life-affirming work.

Kim and her team strive to see that children born from unplanned pregnancies, all across Texas are raised in nurturing families who are ready and prepared for them.  In addition to full adoption services, the APO team comes alongside teen moms who choose to parent, to help prepare them to be the best moms they can be.

Don’t Be Deceived–Their Business Is Abortion, Not “Healthcare”

A recent poll conducted for the National Right to Life Committee showed that more than half of Americans (55 percent) don’t know that Planned Parenthood (PP) does abortions — let alone that it is the biggest abortion provider in the United States.

Students for Life of America reports that the percentage of those who are unaware of PP’s true activities is even higher among college students. At least 60 percent of college students do not know PP does abortions, even though more than 50 percent of Planned Parenthood’s abortions are done on teenagers and college-aged women.

Oh No! I’m Pregnant! What Do I Do?

When faced with an unplanned pregnancy what do you do? Your body is telling you that something has changed. Within a few weeks you start to notice your breasts are tender and may even be swelling a little. You feel a kind of “fullness” in your body. Perhaps you’re feeling nausea in the morning, and need more sleep, and certain foods or smells make your stomach queasy. Continue reading

Gosnell Trial: Abortion Kills Children

As the jury entered its fifth day of deliberations in the murder trial of Kermit Gosnell, they had only considered page one of the 14 pages outlining 268 charges against the abortion doctor.  The horrific charges, graphically revealed during the past several weeks, have barely received notice by most media outlets, and yet, the trial is about the killing of children, and a young woman!

Fetal Pain Laws Are Now in Place in Eleven States

North Dakota is the most recent state to ban abortions after 20 weeks. Research on fetal pain now shows that at 20 weeks of gestation, the baby’s pain receptors are fully developed. In fact, at this stage of development, each side of the brain has a billion nerve cells.

In signing the bill, Republican Gov. Jack Dalrymple stated, “Although the likelihood of this measure surviving a court challenge remains in question, this bill is nevertheless a legitimate attempt by a state legislature to discover the boundaries of Roe v. Wade.” Continue reading
