Throw-away babies
By Sharon Hughes

What do some hospitals do with babies that are aborted but still alive? Throw them in the 'dirty room.' What happens if a nurse reports such treatment? They're fired. What happens when hospitals violate the Born Alive Infants Protection Act and falsify legal documents? My guest, Jill Stanek, a nurse-now journalist, who goes where few women dare to go...bravely exposing the abortion industry's true face, talked with me about this on the show today.

She told of a nurse named 'Abby' who had an experience very similar to her own when she found an aborted baby boy that was still alive in the hospital 'dirty' room, left unattended to die. She reported this incident as well as other similar ones, but sadly, babies are aborted alive more often than is known...even to the mothers.

There are doctors who, as in the case above, falsify records instructing nurses to enter 'zero-zero' for the baby's vital signs, when in fact, the baby is very much alive. No attention is given to these babies to keep them alive, but rather they are disposed of in some of the most inhumane ways, as Jill described one aborted alive baby who was put in a bio-hazard bag and thrown out to die.

The Born Alive Infants Protection Act that Pres. Bush signed into law is being violated, and even when reported, little is being done to prosecute violations.

This is barbaric! There is no other word for it. Giving an abortion. The baby survives the abortion. Doctors and nurses do nothing to help it. Just leave it to die. But then, that's the point of the abortion, right? No baby.

As Dr. Kelly Hollowell writes in her book, "Struggling for Life,"

"The most dangerous time in any child's life is his or her first nine months. That's because abortion takes one out of every four children conceived in America, making the route from womb to tomb very short for millions of unborn boys and girls."

Some abortionists and clinic workers are willing to talk about their experiences in the industry, such as in the following quotes gathered by Abortionfacts.com

"They [the women] are never allowed to look at the ultrasound because we knew that if they so much as heard the heart beat, they wouldn't want to have an abortion." -Dr. Randall, 'Pro-Choice 1990: Skeletons in the Closet" by David Kuperlain and Mark Masters in Oct "New Dimensions" magazine

Every woman has these same two questions: First, "Is it a baby?" "No" the counselor assures her. "It is a product of conception (or a blood clot, or a piece of tissue). . .How many women would have an abortion, if they told them the truth?" -Carol Everett, former owner of two clinics and director of four, "A Walk Through an Abortion Clinic" by Carol Everett ALL About Issues magazine

"I was trained by a professional marketing director in how to sell abortions over the telephone. He took every one of our receptionists, nurses, and anyone else who would deal with people over the phone through an extensive training period. The object was, when the girl called, to hook the sale so that she wouldn't get an abortion somewhere else, or adopt out her baby, or change her mind. We were doing it for the money." -Nina Whitten, chief secretary at a Dallas abortion clinic under Dr. Curtis Boyd

"If a woman we were counseling expressed doubts about having an abortion, we would say whatever was necessary to persuade her to abort immediately." -Judy W., former office manager of the second largest abortion clinic in El Paso, Texas

"We tried to avoid the women seeing them [the fetuses] They always wanted to know the sex, but we lied and said it was too early to tell. It's better for the women to think of the fetus as an 'it.' -Abortion clinic worker Norma Eidelman quoted in Rachel Weeping

"I have seen hundreds of patients in my office who have had abortions and were just lied to by the abortion counselor. Namely 'This is less painful than having a tooth removed. It is not a baby.' Afterwards, the woman sees Life magazine and breaks down and goes into a major depression." -Psychologist Vincent Rue quoted in "Abortion Inc" David Kupelian and Jo Ann Gasper, New Dimensions

"Clinic workers may say they support a woman's right to choose, but they will also say that they do not want to see tiny hands and tiny feet....there is a great difference between the intellectual support of a woman's right to choose and the actual participation in the carnage of abortion. Because seeing body parts bothers the workers." -Judith Fetrow, former clinic worker from San Francisco quoted in "Meet the Abortion Providers III"

"One night a lady delivered and I was called to come and see her because she was 'uncontrollable.' I went into the room, and she was going to pieces; she was having a nervous breakdown, screaming and thrashing. The other patients were upset because this lady was screaming. I walked in, and here was this little saline abortion baby kicking. It had been born alive, and was kicking and moving for a little while before it finally died of those terrible burns, because the salt solution gets into the lungs and burns the lungs too. I'll tell you one thing about D& E . You never have to worry about a baby's being born alive. I won't describe D & E , other than to say that, as a doctor, you are sitting there tearing, and I mean tearing- you need a lot of strength to do it- arms and legs off of babies and putting them in a stack on top of the table." -Dr. David Brewer of Glen Ellyn Illinois

"I got to where I couldn't stand to look at the little bodies anymore" -Dr. Beverly McMillan, when asked why she stopped performing abortions

"We know that its killing, but the state permits killing under certain circumstances" -Dr. Neville Sender, abortionist

As this incredible well-known picture shows, taken by photographer Michael Clancy, it's a baby that's in the womb. A little human life. Dr. Joseph Bruner, Director of Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, was performing surgery on a 21-week-old baby while he was still in his mother's womb to alleviate the effects of spina bifida.

When Dr. Bruner had made the incision for this extraordinary operation, baby Samuel reached his tiny hand out of the uterus and clutched Dr. Bruner's middle finger. See picture of Samuel Armas, after he was born here.

I don't care how politically incorrect it is to talk about this. I don't care how many pro-choice liberals, feminists et al disagree with and get mad about what I've written. These practices are unnatural, barbaric, and unbelievable that doctors and nurses could perform such acts...that clinic workers would lie to vulnerable women about what abortion really is 'for the money.' If these 'procedures' were done to any other human being, other than a baby in the womb, they'd go to jail for murder.

But then, we've passed laws saying it's okay.
