Today, Life Dynamics Inc. a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas, has released an interview with three former abortion clinic workers which prove the Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, recently convicted of murder, is not an anomaly.

The interview was conducted on May 3, 2013 with clinic employees located in a different state.

Mark Crutcher, President of Life Dynamics: “While the pro-life movement claims that abortion takes the life of a living human being, nobody on earth knows that better than the people who work at abortion clinics. The lofty rhetoric of “choice” may insulate those who work in the political and public relations arena, but the day-to-day reality for those who provide those “choices” is to deal with the corpses and parts of corpses they pull out of their customers’ bodies.“

Life Dynamic Press Release

Abortion clinic employee, “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..”

“He does a lot of huge abortions. A lot of the times, we would bring the big fetus that were over age, we would re-open the bag and just look at it and be like, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s so big!’”

“Sometimes he couldn’t get the fetus out. He would yank pieces – piece by piece – when they were oversize. And I’m talking about the whole floor dirty. I’m talking about me drenched in blood.”

What we have witnessed in the Gosnell case and here in our video is the nature of the beast.
Simply put, this is Abortion!

Crutcher continues, “During Gosnell’s trial, it became clear that organizations like Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Federation, and others within the pro-choice community were fully aware of what Gosnell was doing. But they kept quiet because this was a rock they did not want the public looking under. What they knew, and wanted to keep hidden, was that everything being done at this abortion clinic was within the standard operating procedures for every other abortion clinic in the country. So they, and their lapdogs in the media, started whistling past the graveyard.”

THE EVIDENCE CONTINUES TO MOUNT

Gosnell Is One Of A Kind?

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Flush It

That’s what abortion proponents are saying, that “Gosnell is one of a kind” and that’s what they want you to think.

At first the abortion lobby was all too content to keep any information regarding late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s murder trial out of the public arena. And now that news agencies are beginning to report on the case, they are all too eager to speak to the media to spin their deceitful lies and display their pseudo concern for the real victims, the mothers and babies.

In a recent Reuters article, Eric Ferrero, a spokesman for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America said that “Gosnell ran a criminal enterprise, not a healthcare facility, and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.”

What Ferrero fails to mention is that the local Planned Parenthood of Southwest Pennsylvania knew about the problems at the Gosnell clinic because women would go to Planned Parenthood after visiting Gosnell and complain about the condition there as reported by LifeNews.

Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America said, “This is a peek into the back-alley days, the pre-Roe v. Wade days. It’s what too many women experienced when we didn’t provide access to safe and clean abortion services,” Hogue said, referring to the landmark Supreme Court ruling in 1973 that struck down state laws restricting abortion.

The only problem with Houge’s logic is that it is happing now, in 2013, 40 years after Roe v. Wade was passed and abortions are now supposed to be safe and rare, neither of which is true.

A newly published article by Operation Rescue chronicles “four 911 calls placed from a single Planned Parenthood in Orange, California, three of which were made on the same day, seeking emergency transport for patients suffering complications from an abortion and one employee experiencing chest pain.” (Complete with video)

And let’s not forget the Planned Parenthood in Chicago late last year that let a patient, Tonya Reaves, bleed for 5 hours before calling for an ambulance and transporting her to a hospital where she later died. Prior to her death, the hospital also had to perform another abortion because Planned Parenthood failed to remove the baby completely during their initial procedure.

Earlier this year late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart killed Jennifer Morbelli who went in for what she thought was a safe abortion. She ended up dead because Carhart’s abortion clinic tells their patients not to go to an emergency room if they experience complications during the two day procedure or after the abortion. And the number they are given for an emergency is for a horse farm, another business that Carhart owns. And furthermore, Jennifer is not the first patient Carhart has killed.

These are but a few of the horror stories you can find by doing a simple Google search on botched abortions.

No, abortions are not safe, nor are they rare; and the fact that Gosnell took action to make sure the babies did die if they survived the procedure is also not rare. The only thing that is rare is that he got caught.

Many in the abortion industry espouse that if the baby was supposed to die during the abortion procedure then it’s perfectly fine if the baby is killed or allowed to die after he/she survives the procedure. That is straight from the mouth of Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow who was testifying against born-alive infants protection act in Florida. Cecile Richards never spoke out about Snow’s comments. Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates did release a statement attempting to clarify their position stating that they “would provide “appropriate care” to both the woman and the infant.” But who knows what “appropriate care” means? Let’s see what it means to two other abortion facilities.

LiveAction.org just recently released two undercover videos that show two abortion facilities telling an undercover pregnant mother what they would do if the baby was born alive after an attempted abortion.

One said they would do nothing to help the baby survive which is in violation of the federal Born Alive Infant s Protection Act. The other went as far as to tell the woman that if the baby was born alive at home that she should “flush it” [down the toilet.]

Gosnell’s is certainly not the only one. He’s not an outlier. He’s not unusual in the abortion industry.

He’s just the only one with high visibility who’s been caught and prosecuted thus far. There is documentation of so many others. What will happen to them remains to be seen. Will government agencies continue to ignore the warning signs? Will they continue to ignore laws that are already in place in many states? Will they refuse to enforce inspection requirements?

Another contention being advocated by the abortion industry is that if we only had fewer restrictions women wouldn’t have to turn to someone like Gosnell. Other than the fact that that’s an absurd notion on its face, the abortion industry is already pretty much self-regulated. The situation with Gosnell occurred because the laws were not enforced and Gosnell was left to self-regulate himself.

Women went to Gosnell because he was known to do abortions past the legal limit. Women were referred to him by other abortion providers because they knew this. What Planned Parenthood and others would have us believe is that if they lifted the gestation limit on abortion to say 35 weeks 6 days then everything would be fine.

I think President Obama said it best when he said, [and I’m paraphrasing here], we’d still be thinking about tens of thousands of people, women, children, who’ve been killed by a regime that’s more concerned about staying in power than it is about the well-being of the people. This is from his press conference on April 30, 2013 and he was talking about Syria and whether they had used chemical weapons or not. But he needs to have similar sentiments about Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry except he would have had to change the word “thousands” to “millions.”

Dr. Alveda King on Site at Gosnell Trial

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013
Alveda King and Bryan Kemper at the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell

Alveda King and Bryan Kemper at the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell

Breaking report: Gosnell still charged with 4 counts baby murder and one adult; violation of 24 hour notice. He was acquitted of three baby murders and all 5 charges of abuse of corpse.

Many seem to agree that the atrocities at the West Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society perpetrated by late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell should never have occurred and that Gosnell deserves to be punished.

At least that’s what’s unfolding now that the trial has been brought to the forefront of the nation by efforts of life affirming bloggers and social media advocates.

In the opening update above, we see that the judge agreed with some of the charges which could still cause Gosnell to be punished for some of the terrible things he has done, just some.

It’s a tragedy that unjust legal loopholes like unclear evidence of issues like gestational age and size made partial acquittal possible. Our laws are too corrupt and weak to fully protect the human rights and dignity of our babies and their vulnerable mothers.

Prior to a TweetFest on Friday, April 12 and then again on Wednesday, April 17 organized by Bryan Kemper, youth director of Priests for Life, and Andy Moore, AbortionWiki, there seemed to be a media blackout of the trial. Additionally, almost nobody from the pro-abortion movement was saying anything either.

Finally, liberals had the guts to admit that they were squashing the story.

Now that the media has been moved into covering the trial many are all too eager to comment and condemn the actions of abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Unfortunately, still grappling with the injustice of it all, some don’t stop there.

Trapped into what is currently being defined as the growing “mushy middle,” they then go on to spin their lies by blaming pro-life activists for the creation of such a monster by all the pro-life legislation being promoted to better regulate the abortion industry and enforce regulations that already exist.

Don’t be deceived by spin when they say that Gosnell is the exception: he’s not. Gosnell is NOT the exception to the bogus rule that abortion is safe and rare. 2,000 women, including me, have filed an Amicus brief with the US Supreme Court about how abortion hurt us.

They say that Gosnell is a throwback to pre Roe v Wade days and back alley abortions: he’s not. This is happening now, post Roe v Wade. In Sunday’s Washington Post, some are still saying that abortion ranks high among safe med procedures–they are accusing Gosnell of being a back alley abortionist and an exception to the rule.

WRONG! As Father Frank Pavone says, “Gosnell is the rule!” These types of atrocities are happening all over America right now in under and unregulated abortion mills.

Gosnell is NOT the only one committing these atrocities. Hundreds of women have died from legal abortions. A list of nearly 400 is currently on file and can be viewed at safeandlegal.com. The new documentary, Voice of John, the Florida case of the live baby thrown on the roof, and a new website, AbortionDocs.org are but a few examples of unsafe and definitely not rare abortions.

David Grimes, former head of CDC abortion surveillance branch said recently that the problems with abortion are so small the CDC surveillance branch NO LONGER EXISTS. He said over 1000 women/yr. died from abortion in 1940s and it’s less than a handful a year.

On the contrary, we know that there’s a really big handful of hurts from abortion yearly. SILENTNOMOREAWARENESS.ORG has the testimonies of hundreds upon hundreds of women that have been harmed by abortion.

Rachael’s Vineyard ministry, healing after abortion, now offers over 950 healing retreats annually in 48 states and 57 countries, to help women and men that have been harmed by abortion. Their retreat manual has been translated into 22 languages. (Figures as of 2012)

So don’t believe lies and half truths. Abortion is evil. Abortion hurts women and kills human persons (babies and mothers). Abortion must be abolished. Gosnell is just the tip of the iceberg quickly melting in the fires of truth.

Boots on the Ground at Gosnell Trial

Alveda Day and other pro-life leaders

I’m with a PFL TEAM at the murder trial for abortionist Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia, PA. See photo with Day Gardner and other pro-life leaders. [sorry about the quality]

The trial was postponed because the defense attorney is sick. If the attorney is able to work tomorrow I will be here reporting on the proceedings.

Make sure to follow on FB and Twitter for updates. In the meantime read this great blog from my co-worker Kevin Burke, MSS/LSW who offers a unique perspective that you aren’t seeing anyone else report.

Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here: A Descent Into Hell and Trauma at the Gosnell Trial

I spent April 18th 2013 inside a Philadelphia Courtroom with the notorious late term abortionist Kermit Gosnell along with lawyers, jurors, court personnel and witness Kareena Cross who worked at Gosnell’s “medical center.” Ms Cross presented the majority of the testimony of that day.

Based on that experience, I am recommending that a warning banner be posted above the entrance to the courtroom with the chilling words the poet Dante placed at the entrance to the gates of Hell in his epic Divine Comedy…Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here. Dante’s epitaph would also have been well placed at the entrance to the Gosnell Women’s Medical Center in West Philadelphia as an impassioned plea to dissuade all the unfortunate mothers and their unborn children from entering this place of darkness.

To call Gosnell’s abortion business a medical center is like . . .

Another TweetFest Tomorrow to Show America “Who Is #Gosnell”

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: April 16, 2013

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

After the phenomenal success of a TweetFest last Friday that finally convinced the mainstream media to cover the trial of abortionist and accused mass murderer Kermit Gosnell, organizers will take to Twitter again tomorrow to highlight exactly “Who Is #Gosnell?”

From 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, everyone with a Twitter account is invited to share their outrage that Gosnell was able to operate his “house of horrors” in Pennsylvania for 17 years with absolutely no oversight. Tweets should continue to use the hashtag #Gosnell and point the way to WhoIsGosnell.com, a website established by TweetFest co-organizer Bryan Kemper, Youth Outreach Director for Priests for Life.

“In one day last week, there were 600,000 mentions of Gosnell on Twitter,” Kemper said. “The hashtag got the topic trending and brought the ongoing trial to the attention of Anderson Cooper and other national media outlets. Now that we’ve got their attention, we want to make sure they understand exactly who Gosnell is, what’s he accused of doing, and how our abortion-friendly culture allowed this to happen.”

Organizers also are Tweeting pro-life celebrities in an effort to get them involved in event.

Frustrated by the total absence of national media coverage of the trial, Kemper, along with Operation Rescue President Troy Newman and Abortion Wiki Founder Andy Moore, came up with the idea of raising awareness of Gosnell through social media.

“The pro-life movement is absolutely tuned in to the power of social media, so we knew this effort would be a success,” said Kemper. “But we had no idea just how much of an impact it would have. Now we know, and there will be no stopping us.”

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and a prolific Tweeter, said the TweetFest was proof that social media is a powerful tool for the pro-life movement.

“People who had no idea who Gosnell is or what he was accused of are now getting a full education in what Roe v. Wade has allowed to happen in our country,” Father Pavone said as he Tweeted from outside the Philadelphia courtroom where he is attending Gosnell’s trial. “As this information gets out, our movement can only get stronger as a result.”

Working Together is a Win-Win Situation

Friday, April 12th, 2013

Working Together

The following report is proof positive that when we stay in our lanes and do our best work and respect others who are on different pages in the same book, leaders get bolder and are more willing to approach all or nothing based on successful advances.

Kansas State Representative Steve Brunk said Friday after the passage of the omnibus pro-life bill, “There are a growing number of legislators who want to explore the practicality of moving toward fetal heartbeat as opposed to the incremental approach.” House Judiciary Chairman Lance Kinzer, a pro-life leader in the legislature, added, “We’re at a point of re-evaluation. We’re now looking at a different agenda because so much of what we wanted to be accomplished, will be accomplished.”

Analysis: Kan. abortion foes’ wins create dilemma

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas has enacted a wave of stricter abortion laws in the two-plus years Republican Gov. Sam Brownback has been in office, but those successes have led abortion opponents to discuss changing their tactics, unsure about what initiatives they’ll pursue next.

Thirty-two Kansas House members are sponsoring a proposed ban on most abortions as soon as a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can occur as early as the sixth week of pregnancy, and the idea has the backing of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue. Nine of those House members also were sponsors of a previous “personhood” amendment to the state constitution aimed at banning all abortions, declaring that the constitution protects the rights of individual starting at fertilization.

Kansas not only bans most abortions starting at the 22nd week of pregnancy, but . . .

Pro-Life Leaders Will Hold Press Conference Concerning Gosnell Murder Trial Developments

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

130403 blog image

I’m in Atlanta with family preparing to commemorate April 4 memorial to MLK death, while my friends Rev. Clenard Childress and THE VISION co-host Dr. Day Gardner are in Philadelphia reporting on the Kermit Gosnell trial that the mainstream media is virtually ignoring. They know that coverage of this trial would expose how horrific and unjust abortion really is. We all need to work together to make sure that all life affirming laws are just and moral laws. Then they are to be enforced and upheld. Finally, more life affirming laws must be passed.

As my Uncle ML once said, “A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.”

Roe v. Wade is as unjust as they get. We need to reverse it if we are to ever expect our “prayer” of “God bless America” to ever be answered. It’s said so often at the end of political speeches while those saying it vote for unjust laws. It doesn’t make any sense.

Please share the information about the press conference and ask your local papers and stations to cover it.

Her complaints filed against abortionists around the nation have brought to light the illegal activity and substandard practices that are pervasive throughout the abortion industry.

“The Gosnell trial is exposing the shoddy nature of the abortion cartel like never before and the shocking truth of how the black community is particularly targeted for abortion. While not every clinic duplicates Gosnell’s ‘house of horrors,’ there are aspects of his appalling practices present in nearly every abortion clinic in the country,” said Sullenger.

UPDATE: Patient Carhart Killed is Identified and Pro-Life Leaders Call for Investigation of Carhart

Friday, February 15th, 2013

SPACER

(From L-R, Tonya Reaves, Jennifer Morbelli, Marla, and Christin Gilbert)

(From L-R, Tonya Reaves, Jennifer Morbelli, Marla, and Christin Gilbert)

As many of you may already know, another woman has died at the hands of an abortionist. Her name was Jennifer McKenna-Morbelli. Also dead is her 33-week-old preborn daughter, Madison Leigh. Both died at the hands of late-term abortionists LeRoy Carhart at Germantown Reproductive Health Services in Germantown, MD.

You can read a detailed account of what happened at Jill Stanek’s blog HERE.

Since news of this recent killing many in the pro-life community is calling for an intense investigation into her death and the practices of LeRoy Carhart. Among those calling for an investigation is our own Fr. Frank Pavone. HERE is what he had to say.

Jennifer is not the first woman that Carhart has killed. In 2005 he performed an abortion on Christin Gilbert what resulted in her death. Operation Rescue tried to get justice for Christin but was unsuccessful. Read her story HERE.

Although the abortion industry likes to say that abortions should be rare and safe, they are neither. Priests for Life has joined forces with Operation Rescue and Life Dynamics to bring attention to the many deaths of women who have had abortions in a new project at safeandlegal.com

All this news comes on the heels of the death of Tonya Reaves who was killed after a botched second- trimester abortion at a Planned Parenthood abortion mill in Chicago. The National Black Prolife Coalition has worked tirelessly to bring attention to this terrible tragedy. Just recently the Thomas More Society, acting on behalf of the Pro-Life Action League, has formally requested that the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation investigate the death of Tonya Reaves, the 24-year-old who died last July 20 after suffering a Chicago Planned Parenthood abortion. Read more HERE.

Much is happening in the pro-life world. Many states are passing pro-life legislation with 2012 recording record numbers of bills passed.

Abortion is being exposed! We will abolish abortion!

All the lies that the abortion industry has been telling are coming unraveled; are dying. As my Uncle M.L. said, “A lie cannot live.” In the end, truth will always prevail over lies, light over darkness, and life over death.

GERMANTOWN, MD — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is helping to lead a prayer vigil and press conference this morning at the site of abortionist LeRoy Carhart’s late-term killing center here.

Carhart performed a 33-week abortion this past week on Jennifer Leigh Morbelli, 29, who died after the procedure, along with her daughter, Madison Leigh. Her death is being investigated. A witness says she developed complications, and Carhart could not be contacted to take care of her.

Fr. Frank will call this morning for swift action on the part of the state of Maryland to not only investigate this death but also to stop Carhart from killing children and their mothers. Fr. Frank will also ask every priest across the nation to offer two Masses: one for the repose of the soul of Jennifer and her baby Madison, and another for the conversion of abortionist LeRoy Carhart.
