On the same day when Nancy Pelosi holds a press conference and dances around a question about the difference between late-term abortions and the babies born alive and then killed by Kermit Gosnell, Live Action has released the latest installment in their Inhuman: Undercover in America’s Late-Term Abortion Industry video series.
Among the highlights:
Watch the whole thing:
An article about our recent protests of abortionist Cheryl Chastine appeared last week in the Chicago Tribune, making it clear that Chastine should expect to be seeing us outside her office on a regular basis.
The purpose of our protests is simple: Chastine is killing babies at South Wind Women’s Center abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas, and we want her to quit.
South Wind is owned by Trust Women, a PAC led by lobbyist Julie Burkhart, a former employee of abortionist George Tiller. Burkhart was quoted in the article as saying:
If you have a medical practice that also incorporates abortion care into it, then it’s challenging because of the social and political climate in which we live to find physicians who are willing to take that on because of the real dangers out there
Note Burkhart’s use of the oxymoronic phrase “abortion care”—spoken like a seasoned abortion industry lobbyist.
She is right about one thing, though: there is very much a “danger” that that if you’re a doctor and you do abortions, you’re going to find protesters outside your office. Indeed, that’s precisely why most doctors don’t want to touch abortion with a ten-foot pole. [Continue reading ...]
I never quite met Henry Morgentaler in person, although I picketed his abortion mills all over Canada and once protested a party in his honor so vigorously that he had to send out staff to plead with us to “tone it down.”
Known as “the father of abortion in Canada,” Morgentaler died at his home in Toronto May 29 at the age of 90.
He had survived both Auschwitz and Dachau under the Nazis and came to Canada from his native Poland shortly after World War II. He began his abortion career while abortion was still illegal in Canada, performing his first abortion there in January 1968.
He was sentenced to 18 months in jail for his early abortions but served only ten months after suffering a heart attack in jail. He began his all-out abortion crusade in 1969, eventually training hundreds of men and women to do abortions and establishing abortion clinics in all but one of Canada’s ten provinces.

McMahon called Gosnell “a dream client” who was “a complete gentleman” during the two and a half years the two men have known each other. And while McMahon admitted that “things went a bit awry” at the notorious Women’s Medical Society, he said it was “simplistic” to lay the blame at Gosnell’s feet. Instead, McMahon said, the real problem was that the state of Pennsylvania had turned a blind eye on the likes of Gosnell for 18 years.
It’s not as if McMahon was going to go on national TV and throw Gosnell under the bus, so his comments should come as no surprise. He was, after all, the lawyer that Gosnell paid to represent him, so one would expect McMahon to say nice things about his client, deflect blame and point the finger elsewhere, etc.
But the most surprising part of the interview came at the 8:15 mark, when McMahon had this to say about late-term abortion: [Continue reading ...]
A crowd of 60 pro-life activists assembled Wednesday in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park to protest outside Total Wellness Inc.—the family practice office of Dr. Cheryl Chastine, the new owner of the South Wind Women’s Center abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas.
As with the first protest we organized outside Chastine’s office last month, it rained for much of the 90 minutes we were out there, but once again, rather than packing up and going home, our group of stalwart pro-life activists—that included many first-timers, as well as many others who took time off of work to be there—maintained their posts, undaunted.
The sidewalks in front of Chastine’s office and across the street were lined with protesters holding “Stop Abortion Now” signs or arrow-shaped signs saying simply “Abortionist”. Others held signs they had made themselves, the most creative of which read, “Total Wellness for the Unborn”. [Continue reading ...]
After we found out last month that Dr. Cheryl Chastine, the new owner of the South Wind Women’s Center abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas had a family practice in our own backyard, we knew we had to stage a full-blown protest outside her office, which we did on April 17, when a crowd of 40 pro-life activists lined the sidewalks in front of Total Wellness, Inc. in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park.
Pro-Life Action League Executive Director Eric Scheidler told LifeSiteNews that the strong turnout showed that “pro-lifers are really energized for this kind of activism that goes right to the heart of the abortion cartel.”
That was the first protest outside abortionist Cheryl Chastine’s office, and everyone agreed it should not be the last. [Continue reading ...]
Matthew Franck, writing at The Public Discourse:
Gosnell, whose clinic was shut down by the Philadelphia authorities who charged him with murder, is the ne plus ultra of the abortion trade. Not because of the filth, the squalor, the jars of amputated keepsake baby feet, the employment of unlicensed incompetents, the promiscuous use of narcotics on unwitting patients, or the poisonous racism of a physician who preyed upon women and babies of his own race—although all of these are no surprise at all in America’s most unregulated branch of medicine.
No, Gosnell is the “slave-dealer” par excellence because, even if he had run the cleanest, brightest, most professional clinic in the country, he was simply following out the remorseless logic of the abortion regime installed forty years ago by the Supreme Court.
Women came to him for the very latest of late-term abortions, and he made sure their children were dead. Whether he accomplished their deaths in utero or ex utero—before or after their births—didn’t really matter to Gosnell. And, as we have heard from Planned Parenthood officials, from then-Illinois state senator Barack Obama, and from “pro-choice” politicians like Senator Barbara Boxer, it doesn’t matter to them, either.

Just released this morning, the latest in Live Action’s newest undercover video series is of notorious abortionist Leroy Carhart, and it has some of the most eye-opening footage they’ve ever gotten.
The most shocking exchange — the part that everyone is going to remember after watching this video — starts around the 4:45 mark, when Carhart explains to the woman that her 26-week baby, after receiving a fatal shot of digoxin to the heart and remaining, dead, in the womb, for three days, will soften and be easy to deliver:
Carhart: It’s like putting meat in a crock pot, okay? It doesn’t get—it doesn’t get—it doesn’t get broke—it gets softer. It doesn’t get infected or, you know—
Woman: OK, so the dead baby in me is like—
Carhart: It’s just—
Woman: —like meat in a Crock-Pot.
Carhart: Pretty mu—yeah, kinda much.
Woman: All right. All right.
Carhart: In a slow cooker.
Here’s the video: [Continue reading ...]
Despite driving gusts up to 35mph, over 30 pro-life activists came out yesterday to be a part of Pro-Life Action League’s protest of Planned Parenthood’s swanky “Generations Gala” fundraiser held at Chicago’s Navy Pier.
Among those on hand were a group from Springfield Right to Life that made the three-hour drive from Illinois’ capital city. Additionally, two other pro-lifers (one from Michigan, one from Connecticut) had already planned to be in Chicago yesterday, and made it a specific point to lend their support of our protest of the nation’s largest abortion chain.
We made sure to have all the entry points onto Navy Pier covered, so as Planned Parenthood’s well-heeled donors made their way to the event, they were confronted with large signs bearing the message “Abortion is not health care” and showing the graphic reality of what abortion does to a baby. [Continue reading ...]
OK. But what specifically about the Gosnell case do Cecile Richards, et al., find so “horrific” and “appalling”?
Clearly, as self-styled of “women’s health” advocates, they object to the de facto conditions found at Gosnell’s so-called clinic: urine-splattered walls, blood on the floors, cats roaming freely and defecating all over the place, etc. – to say nothing of the death of 41-year old Karnamaya Mongar.
Then again, considering the recent investigation into House of Horrors 2.0 – namely, Delaware Planned Parenthood — it would seem that the Wal-Mart of the Abortion Industry should be slapping the “horrific” and “appalling” label on one of its own. [Continue reading ...]
