Hail Satan or Amazing Grace, What is your Choice?

Activists on both sides of abortion have convened in Texas, as that state seeks to regulate an industry that has long operated outside traditional standards of medical care. Those that advocate for abortion are cheering Wendy Davis, a Senator that filibustered a bill that would have banned abortions after five months, and would require abortion centers to meet the reasonable standards of medical care typically applied to surgical centers. Ms. Davis and her supporters successfully blocked the passage of the bill last week, and this week both sides again convened in Austin after Governor Perry called a special session to vote the bill up or down.

Yesterday, pro-abortion advocates chanted "Hail Satan" in an attempt to drown out the voices of pro-life advocates, singing Amazing Grace. While these rabid advocates of “choice” expose who it is their efforts are dedicated to, I think it is critical to remind women throughout this country that back alley abortion is alive and well in America.

No matter what stage of pregnancy the woman is in, her physical and mental health and sometimes her life are at risk. Here are a few examples:

  • Its March, 2000 and 22 year old Semika Shaw entered the Philadelphia House of Horrors run by Kermit Gosnell. She was five months pregnant. He perforated her uterus, and then sent her home without additional medical care. Two days later she died from sepsis – a whole body reaction to the infection that resulted from the perforation.
  • Its 2001 and Carol Howard visited the Orlando Women’s Center for an abortion at a little more than five months. Staff of abortionist Pendergraft gave her RU486 and Cytotec , inducing a long, hard and painful labor. She delivered a live baby at a local hospital, who has severe disabilities as a result of the drugs given to Carol.
  • It’s May 2003, and Michelle Armesto Berge, is coerced by her parents, even though she is 18, to abort her six and a half month pregnancy, She wanted the child and planned to marry the baby’s father. Her parents won the fight. While in George Tiller’s Women’s Health Care Services center, she refused to deliver her baby into a toilet bowl, as ordered by clinic workers. Instead she delivered her dead baby on the floor next to the commode, a sight that haunts her to this day.
  • Its January 7, 2004 and 15 year old Tamia Russell enters the WomanCare of Southfield, Michigan abortion center for a six month termination of pregnancy. Her 24-year-old boyfriend’s sister had driven her to the facility to obtain an abortion by Alberto Hodari, without parental consent or Judicial bypass as required by state law. She returned to the facility the next day complaining of bleeding heavily and before she could get to a hospital she died of "Uterine infarction with sepsis, due to status post second trimester abortion" according to the medical examiner.
  • Christin A. Gilbert, who was 19, died after a 7 month abortion on January 13, 2005. Christin had been raped sometime in 2004. Her rapist was never found. After the botched abortion, Gilbert was rushed into the Wesley Medical Center ER in Wichita, Kansas. Gilbert suffered complications during her abortion that were not fully diagnosed, an autopsy concluded.
  • Its November 16, 2006 and Ms. S. Cummings learns she is pregnant. She enters Western Women’s Center in Michigan for an abortion. Four days later pathology reports reveal Ms. Cummings may have an ectopic pregnancy. Ms. Cummings is called back to the clinic four times before she is told to go to the emergency room where it is discovered she indeed had an ectopic pregnancy. Ms. Cummings lost her right fallopian tube as a result of the negligence of Dr. Jacob Kalo.
  • Its August 17, 2007 and “Jane Roe”, entered the Lincoln(NB)Planned Parenthood office for an abortion in the 8th week of pregnancy. Reports are that “during the suction abortion, she felt a sharp, excruciating pain and asked abortionist Severson to stop. Three employees then held the woman down while he completed the suction process in spite of her pleas” and she later lost 80% of her bodies’ blood as well as suffered a complete hysterectomy.
  • Its September 7,2008 and a thirteen year old who had been raped, entered Planned Parenthood on 16th Street in Washington, D. C. for an abortion. When she leaves a few hours later, she is sterile. They perforated her uterus, tore her bowel and ripped her cervix among other injuries.
  • It’s November 2009 and Karnamaya Mongar, a recent immigrant from Bhutan sought an abortion at 5 months pregnant in Gosnell’s House of Horrors in Pennsylvania. Over sedated by unlicensed staff, she died from an overdose of Demerol.
  • It’s August 9, 2010, and D.B. went to American Women’s Center in Voorhees, New Jersey, for a pregnancy termination at 5 months. New Jersey law states that abortions can only be done up to 3 1/2 months at clinics not licensed as ambulatory surgical centers or hospitals. The abortion was begun in NJ, then the following morning D. B. was taken to another location in Elkton, MD for its completion. The abortionist, Nicola Riley had perforated D.B.’s uterus, shoved the remains of baby into her abdominal cavity, and pulled out part of her bowel through her vagina.
  • It’s July 20, 2012.Tonya Reaves, 24 years old, enters a Planned Parenthood at 18 S. Michigan Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. After perforating her uterus and leaving parts of the baby inside her, Planned Parenthood wantonly disregard her life - they let her bleed in their facility for more than five hours before sending her 1.7 miles down the way to emergency medical care. Tonya died from hemorrhage following a Dilation and Evacuation abortion.
  • Its February 7, 2013 and 29 year old Jennifer Morbelli trusted LeRoy Carhart to terminate her 8 month pregnancy because she had been told her daughter would suffer seizures if birthed. At the conclusion of Carhart’s medical care, Jennifer ‘s amniotic fluid in her womb spilled into her bloodstream, making it impossible for her blood to clot. Jennifer coded six times before dying. LeRoy Carhart was nowhere to be found as Jennifer’s family frantically tried to find him to help her.

    Hail Satan indeed. He has drunk the blood of more than fifty five million innocents. He has taken the lives of future children as the coat hangers in suits and dresses the industry calls doctors, shred the insides of untold numbers of women, now never able to have children. His blood thirst frequently consumes the lives of women in untold numbers because no one tracks their deaths for fear the secret will get out: Abortion is legal yes, but is a procedure that is anything but safe. Hail Satan indeed.

    “Choice” is in the air. What side do you choose?
