It happened in America a couple of months ago. But I think it worth me blogging nonetheless because more of us must know.
Google tells me the mainstream media did not report it. No surprises there.
Last month, volunteers from a pro-life organisation, Created Equal, sifted through the industrial bin, or dumpster as they are called in the US, of the Northeast Ohio Women’s Center (NEOWC) abortion facility in Cuyahoga Falls.
What they found was horrific, as described on their Facebook page.
As the volunteer carefully looked though each bag, he discovered something most profoundly sad and shocking—the dismembered body of an aborted baby, approximately 16 to 18 weeks gestation, killed by the dilation and evacuation abortion method. The aborted baby had been hidden, wrapped up in a blood-stained blue surgical pad used during the abortion procedure. In addition, several discarded prescription vials and urine cups were found that contained intact names of clinic patients, as well as bio-waste—such as other bloody blue surgical papers and soiled suction cannulas used in the abortion procedures. The left leg, left foot, and right hand of the baby was found in the NEOWC dumpster, as well as the name of one clinic abortionist on a prescription.
Facebook has of course censored the photos.
For those who might be sceptical about the credibility of dumpster-diving pro-life enthusiasts from an obscure group in Ohio, the story was picked up by some of the most pre-eminent pro-life and alternative news websites, including Live Action and the Daily Caller.
A Republican Congressman from Indiana, Jim Banks told the Daily Caller that the discovery was:
“…a wake-up call for anyone who suggests that a 17-week-old fetus is ‘a clump of cells.’ Thanks to breakthroughs in science, we know that babies at this age feel pain and have a beating heart, just like anyone outside the womb. Unborn children deserve to be treated with the same dignity and respect as we’d apply to anyone else.”
What is happening in abortion mills around the world, including here in Australia where we have made it legal in most states for babies to be killed in their mothers’ wombs right up to birth, is arguably the greatest human rights violation of our time.
God help us and forgive us for our silence.
