Abortion advocates like to pretend that women's health and wellbeing is at the centre of their philosophy and practice. The opposite is probably the truth. Abortionists and abortion clinics conduct profit-making enterprises. That is their main goal and focus. There are thousands of reports and lawsuits which demonstrate just how callous and dangerous they are. We report on some of these below.
YOUNG MOTHER DIED AFTER LEGAL ABORTION IN PLANNED PARENTHOOD CLINIC
Remember this young mother's name. Cree Erwin, 24-years-old and mother to a 1-year-old little boy, died after a 'safe, legal' abortion in a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Michigan in July 2016.
A young child is left motherless, and a mother and her baby are dead. But there is no media outcry as it doesn't suit their abortion agenda. RIP Cree and baby.
ABORTIONIST FOUND GUILTY OF MURDERING PATIENTS AND NEWBORNS
A Philadelphia physician, Kermit Barron Gosnell, was charged in early 2011 with murder and other offenses for allegedly causing the death of one of his female patients and killing seven viable babies in illegal, late-term abortions, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said.The babies were born alive in the sixth, seventh and eighth months of pregnancy, but their spinal cords were allegedly severed with scissors, Williams said in a statement.
Nine other people who worked in the west Philadelphia medical office, including Gosnell's wife and sister-in-law, were also charged, Williams said. The practice, called the Women's Medical Society, served mostly low-income minority women for years, he said.
Williams' statement provided a grisly scenario of the shuttered abortion clinic: A search of the office last year by authorities found bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses scattered throughout the building. Jars contained the severed feet of babies and lined a shelf. Furniture and equipment was blood-stained, dusty and broken.
Gosnell also faced seven murder charges in the deaths of infants allegedly killed after being born viable and alive during the sixth, seventh and eighth months of pregnancy in illegal, late term abortions, Williams said.
The statment also read that Gosnell faced charged with infanticide, conspiracy, abortion at 24 or more weeks of pregnancy, corpse abuse, theft, corruption of minors, solicitation and other related offenses.
Seven other employees at the clinic were also charged, according to the statement:
Lynda Williams, 42, of Wilmington, Delaware, is also charged with third-degree murder in Mongar's death. Williams is accused of being an unlicensed worker who routinely performed illegal operations and administered anesthesia. She is also facing murder charges for the death of a viable baby born alive, abortion at 24 or more weeks and other related offenses.
Sherry West, 51, of Newark, Delaware, is charged with third-degree murder. She was allegedly an unlicensed worker at the clinic who routinely performed illegal operations and administered anesthesia. She is also facing a charge of providing an abortion at 24 or more weeks and other related offenses.
Adrienne Moton, 33, of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, is charged with murder in the death of a viable baby born alive. She was allegedly an unlicensed worker at the clinic who routinely and illegally administered anesthesia to patients.
Steven Massof, 48, of Pittsburgh, is facing murder charges for the deaths of two viable babies born alive. Massof, a medical school graduate without a license or any certification, allegedly worked as a doctor at the clinic. He is also facing conspiracy and other related charges.
Eileen O'Neill, 54, of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, is a medical school graduate who allegedly worked as a doctor at the clinic without a license or certification. She is facing theft by deception, conspiracy, perjury and false swearing charges.
Tina Baldwin, 45, of Philadelphia, is facing racketeering, conspiracy and corruption of a minor charges. She was allegedly an unlicensed worker at the clinic who illegally administered anesthesia to patients and allowed her 15-year-old daughter to administer anesthesia to patients as well.
Office manager Maddline Joe, 53, of Philadelphia, is charged with conspiracy.
CONVICTED OF MURDER
On 13th May 2013, Gosnell was convicted on 3 of 4 counts of murdering babies and killing a 41-year-old woman.
The verdict, which was announced this afternoon in the courtroom of Judge Jeffrey Minehart, means Gosnell will face the death penalty at sentencing. Sentencing was scheduled for May 21.
The "not guilty" count related to Baby E, who uttered a noise before being killed. Jurors could not determine conclusively that such a sound represented a sign of life.
Jurors convicted Gosnell of one count of infanticide and two counts of conspiracy in the murders of the babies, which defense attorney Jack McMahon sometimes called "infants," as well. They also convicted Gosnell of breaking Pennsylvania law by aborting babies past the state's limit of 24-weeks' gestation.
The 72-year-old abortionist faced hundreds of charges, ranging from first-degree murder to racketeering to tampering with evidence.
Prosecutors Ed Cameron and Joanne Pescatore appeared relaxed before the verdict came in, according to reporter J.D. Mullane of the Buck County (PA) Courier Times, while McMahon looked nervous.
Gosnell showed no emotion as the verdict was handed down, according to Mullane.
The decision comes after six weeks of testimony and nearly two weeks of deliberation. On April 23, Judge Minehart dismissed nine charges against Gosnell: three murder charges, one count of infanticide, and five cases of abusing a corpse. He gave no indication why he did so.
McMahon told jurors that Gosnell had injected the babies with Digoxin, stopping their heart, and "snipped" the babies only to "ensure fetal demise." However, authorities found not a trace of Digoxin on the premises when they raided the Women's Medical Society offices in West Philadelphia.
Horrifying testimony from the facility's workers confirmed the babies lived sometimes as long as 20 minutes before being subjected to the painful procedure.
The jury reported being deadlocked on two counts the morning of the trial. It was not initially reported what those charges were.
The verdict does not satisfy all critics. Some time before the decision was announced, Pastor Luke Robinson, who was keynote speaker at the 2012 March for Life, told TheWashington Times, “The whole health department of Pennsylvania should be on trial for allowing these atrocities.”
Law enforcement officials raided Gosnell's abortion business in 2010, believing he merely ran a "pill mill," dispensing prescriptions for narcotics to make a quick buck. What they found shocked and nauseated them.
Inside his "house or horrors," which featured an image of two parents holding the hand of a new baby, they found unsanitized equipment that transmitted STDs between patients, urine- and blood-soaked recliners for post-abortion "recovery," and dismembered fetal body parts.
During his closing argument, Cameron dramatically asked Gosnell, "Are you human?"
The atrocities unfolded with the tacit permission of numerous levels of authority in the government, as well as within the health care and abortion industries.
Pennsylvania health advisers decided to stop inspecting abortion facilities in the mid-1990s under pro-abortion Republican Governor Tom Ridge on the grounds that inspections imposed an undue burden on the abortion industry.
A representative of the National Abortion Federation inspected the business and declined Gosnell's membership -- but did not report him to higher authorities. Neither did hospitals who dealt with the many victims of Gosnell's botched abortions over the years.
The mainstream media also showed little interest in the story -- which combined elements of murder, macabre practices, and economic and racial health disparities -- until a tweetfest generated more than half-a-million comments using the #Gosnell hashtag.
MISTAKENLY ABORTED CHILD IN ITALY DIED AFTER HOURS OF AGONY
On 9th March, a 22 week-old baby that was aborted after his mother was told he might be deformed died at a hospital in Florence, Italy, after several hours of intense suffering. Doctors said the baby survived the abortion procedure and that afterwards they discovered he was completely healthy. The baby weighed only 17 ounces when the abortion was performed.
Medical records indicate that the unborn baby underwent tests during the 20th and 21st weeks, which indicated he might have had a rare disorder that affects 3 out of every 1,500 babies but that can be corrected with surgery in 90 percent of the cases.
Once the abortion took place, the doctors noticed the baby's heart was beating and they determined that he was not suffering from any deformation.
At that point they decided to revive it. The baby fought for his life for several days but died of heart failure. Doctors have not revealed the abortion method that was used. In Italy abortion is legal for any reason during the first three months of pregnancy and afterwards only in cases of a threat to the life of the mother, fetal deformation or, a threat to the physical or psychological health of the mother. Currently authorities are investigating the case in order to determine those responsible for the incident.
SPAINISH POLICE FIND LATE-TERM ABORTION CENTRES FLUSHED BABIES DOWN THE DRAIN
In November 2007, Local authorities investigating four late-term abortion businesses in Barcelona say they discovered machines attached to the drains of the buildings used to flush down the bodies of babies victimized by abortion. The machines were apparently used to crush the bodies and flush them into the city's sewer system.
Police believe the abortion centers did illegal abortions as late as eight months into pregnancy and they have arrested abortion business operator Carlos Morin, his wife and four staff members.
According to a London Times news report, the machines the police found were so loud that they were only operated during very early morning hours so those coming to the centers during the day would not hear them. Officials are testing the machines to see if they can isolate any DNA samples form the bodies of babies for their probe. They hope to match the DNA to patients found in client records at the centers.
FORENSIC REPORT INDICATES MANSLAUGHTER AT FLORIDA ABORTION MILL
In Florida in March 2008, results of a forensic pathologist's review of documents and slides related to the autopsy of a baby born alive during an abortion at a Hialeah clinic in 2006, reveal that non-medical workers may have committed manslaughter when they shoved the struggling baby girl into a biohazard bag and tossed her on the roof of the clinic to die.
The Thomas Moore Society, who is representing the mother of the baby, named Shanice Denise, hired forensic pathologist Abdullah Fatteh to inspect the available evidence, including the county autopsy report, microscopic slides prepared by the medical examiner, and other records. Fatteh concluded that unlicensed worker Belkis Gonzalez performed the failed abortion, wherein the baby was born alive. He concluded that they cut the cord and improperly disposed of the baby's body. Abortionist Pierre Renelique was absent during the incident.
Fatteh stated, "The actions of unlicensed clinic staff probably accelerated and/or contributed to the death of the newborn ... It is most likely that neglectful actions around the time of birth of newborn and prematurity were the significant factors that resulted in this newborn's death."
Gonzalez, who owned a group of abortion mills, including the Hialeah clinic, pled guilty to practicing medicine without a license at another abortion mill in Miramar, Florida, on December 20, 2007, and was given five years probation. Her associate, Senesis was also charged in the Miramar incident, and her case is still pending.
Gonzalez's lawyer, Robelto Osborne, a former abortionist who had his license revoked, was previously convicted of practicing medicine without a license, as was her receptionist, Joselin Colado, and her cleaning lady, Adrianne Rojas. The criminal investigation against Gonzalez in the death of Baby Shanice is open and progressing.
