Do Not Look Away: Gruesome Abortion Realities

Sep 16, 2019

The main way to fight evil is to first become fully aware of its ugly reality.

When we want to defend something that is so blatantly horrible and evil, we resort to euphemisms. Those involved in great evil always tell lies about it, while those seeking to expose these evils will shine the spotlight of truth on it. That is exactly what must be done in the abortion battle.

Instead of calling abortion what it really is – baby killing – we talk about “a woman’s right to choose” or “reproductive rights” and the like. Covering up the ugly reality of abortion is one way to proceed. A far better way is to tell the truth about abortion. For too long we have allowed deception and falsehoods to cover up what is really going on in the sordid world of the abortion mills.

It does not take much to see the gruesome reality of abortion. Sure, most of the mainstream media outlets will never spill the beans here, but plenty of other sources can be utilised. We must inform ourselves – and others – of the truth about this modern-day genocide.

To help us in this regard, here are three recent examples of the fiendish evil that occurs in this diabolical industry. These cases are just the tip of the iceberg, but they do give us some clear indications as to what really takes place within the ghoulish abortion mills.

The first case involves an abortionist who has just passed away (he got to live far longer than his victims). What was discovered at his home was utterly grotesque. As one article states:

The remains of more than 2,000 fetuses have been found at the home of an abortion doctor who died just 10 days ago. The 2,246 fetal remains were discovered in the home of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer in Will County, Illinois. Klopfer died on September 3 and it was while family members were going through his home that they found the medically preserved fetuses.

An attorney for the family was said to have contacted the coroner’s office on Thursday about the discovery. It was estimated that he had performed tens of thousands of abortion procedures in multiple Indiana counties for decades, making him ‘likely’ to be the state’s ‘most prolific abortion doctor in history,’ according to the South Bend Tribune.

There is currently no evidence to suggest abortions were carried out at the property, authorities said. The doctor had performed abortions at Women’s Pavilion in South Bend, Indiana, until his license was suspended in 2016 for failure to exercise reasonable patient care and violating multiple notice and documentation requirements, according to the South Bend Tribune.

Wow. What sort of person keeps thousands of dead babies in his home? It is clear that the heart, soul and conscience of a person can grow stone-cold when he or she is involved in such a horrific ‘profession’ as this. They lose their own humanity as they snuff out the lives of so many innocent little babies.

My second case is just as appalling and ghastly. It comes from an ongoing criminal case against pro-lifers David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt who had worked tirelessly to expose the evils of Planned Parenthood. The overall story itself goes back some four years, and I have written about it often, eg: billmuehlenberg.com/2015/07/15/planned-parenthoods-deadly-baby-trade/

But now these two fearless investigators are still being raked over the coals for what they did to expose the ugly abortion industry. Consider some shocking recent revelations as discussed in the court case:

The CEO of StemExpress essentially admitted in court Thursday that her biotech company supplies beating fetal hearts and intact fetal heads to medical researchers. She also admitted at the preliminary hearing of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress that the baby’s head could be procured attached to the baby’s body or “could be torn away.”

“That is an especially gruesome admission, but it begs the question: how did they get these fully intact human children?” says Peter Breen of the Thomas More Society, which is representing Daleiden at the hearing. “If you have a fetus with an intact head and an intact body, and intact extremities, that is something that would indicate that child was born alive, and then had their organs cut out of them, or that that child was the victim of an illegal partial-birth abortion,” he told LifeSiteNews. “Both of these are gruesome and violent acts.”

CMP’s Daleiden and Merritt are charged with 15 felony counts of illegal taping of confidential information in connection with undercover videos they released in 2015 after a three-year covert investigation into the buying and selling of baby body parts, which is a felony.

One can only compare this to something like the medical experiments of the Nazis. The same callous disregard for human life and the same satanic agendas are at work here. Both groups have declared entire classes of people to be not worth living. Both are guilty of mass slaughter and unspeakable crimes against humanity.

But both these cases have to do with large groups of victims. Let me narrow things down to just one tiny life, to help us see the real face of the abortion terror. This is a story that is horrific in detail, but it is something that happens routinely in the abortion killing fields:

This week, at a hearing on Capitol Hill on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, Congressman Chris Smith, chair of the Pro-Life Caucus, issued the following statement:

“In a Florida abortion clinic, Sycloria Williams delivered a live baby girl at 23 weeks. The clinic owner took the baby who was gasping for air, cut her umbilical cord, threw her into a biohazard bag and put the bag in the trash. Heartbroken, Sycloria later had a funeral for her baby girl who she named Shanice. In Sycloria’s home state of Florida, in just one year—2017—eleven babies were born alive during abortions. Shockingly only six states—Florida, Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Texas—currently require the reporting of children born alive who survive abortion. Why the coverup?”

These stories are fully representative of the ugly world of abortion. They can be repeated time and time again. They are not unique or aberrational – they are what the abortion industry is all about. This is what the abortionists do for a living – no pun intended. They get rich by taking innocent human life.

I already mentioned that comparisons with the Nazis is fully legitimate here. There are far too many similarities and parallels between both groups. Let me remind you that there were some brave souls who risked everything to stand against the evils of Hitler.

They were few in number, but their names – if known – are forever immortalised. Let me mention a small group of German young people who are clear examples of this. Sophie Scholl was beheaded by the Nazis at the age of 21. She gave her life for standing against evil, and she paid the price for it. So did her brother, and some other young people. You can read about them here: billmuehlenberg.com/2018/07/30/notable-christians-sophie-and-hans-scholl/

Just as the evils of Nazism had to be resisted – but so few did – so too today the evils of abortion must be resisted – but so few are. Most people today just do not give a rip, just as most did not seem to care in Germany last century. And sadly these apathetic and disinterested masses include far too many Christians as well.

Let me close with the words of young Sophie. I urge you to read them, read them again, and prayerfully ask God to speak to you personally and powerfully:

The real damage is done by those millions who want to ‘survive.’ The honest men who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes. Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves – or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature. Those who live small, mate small, die small. It’s the reductionist approach to life: if you keep it small, you’ll keep it under control. If you don’t make any noise, the bogeyman won’t find you. But it’s all an illusion, because they die too, those people who roll up their spirits into tiny little balls so as to be safe. Safe?! From what? Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn.

God bless you Sophie. Who will join you in opposing the modern abortion holocaust – the greatest moral evil of our time?

  • And so, as with Wilberforce’s determined fight against legalized slavery, the abortion holocaust must be fought with all our strength and with all our might until babies may be safe again in their mother’s womb – and if not wanted by their parents, able to be born and adopted to parents who will love, cherish and nurture them to fulfil the potential for which they have been created by their Creator.

    Bill, we appreciate your rallying call, but we need direction. The abortion horror is a blight on all Australia. The pro-life – “love them both!” – rally at Hyde Park yesterday was told that one out of every ten babies survives abortion, and despite the horror and pain of the precious baby’s ordeal, these little ones are just set aside without care, to die – in our hospitals! And all of us are required to fund this barbarism through Medicare!

    We need to know how we can agitate to be allowed to rescue these precious little ones, while we fight with all that is in us to change these shameful, barbaric laws.

    Christians, stand up and be counted! Ensure ‘Unplanned’ is viewed widely. We must become organized and efficient – as the left is so very organized! – so we may take an effective stand against the evil that is swamping our societies and saturating our children’s minds.

    God has gifted us all in different ways for the furthering of His Kingdom.

    Time for slumbering is over!

  • Thanks Suzanna. Someone recently asked what we can do re the trans agenda. What I said there is relevant here:

    Much like all the other issues, there is plenty that we can do. The sky is the limit really. But the obvious basics I have discussed often in articles such as these:

  • Thank you, Bill, for describing just how cruel and gruesome the abortion business is. So many Americans who oppose abortion speak only of politicians and whether they are pro-choice or pro-life. However, abortion has been legal in the United States since 1973, and it is promoted by various facets of commerce and society, not just the politicians. There definitely is something wrong with women who choose abortion, and there is something wrong with the medical profession, insurance industry, pharmaceutical industry, and other related businesses that promote abortion and profit from it. Recently I read that corporations support abortion because they favor childless employees who do not need certain benefits and can get by with lower wages. As a result, the corporations can save money by paying single or childless people less than what a family with children would require. At the same time they offer fewer and fewer benefits so that the corporations can add to their own profits.

    I would not be a bit surprised if the banking industry is in on this because childless people have no heirs. When childless people become elderly and disabled, their accounts easily can become inactive. When the individuals without heirs pass away, the banking industry can confiscate the money in the inactive accounts, making the bank the “heir.” The whole business amounts to exploiting workers and killing off the concept of the nuclear family in a society. The idea echoes the old Marxist principle, “From each according to his ability and to each according to his need.”

    The legalization of abortion shows the really sick selfishness that is prevalent in the world today. There is absolutely no concept of an innocent being, whether someone is an unborn child, a handicapped or elderly person, or a stray cat or dog. The Culture of Death proclaims that death is the “final solution” for everyone in these categories. Since there is no concept of innocence, there is virtually no protection or compensation for the victims of crime. Yet, the criminal is defended as “merely expressing himself,” no matter how much damage and loss he causes. Again, Bill, thank you for exposing this present-day evil. We all need to stand up and combat this atrocity before we too are silenced.

  • I visited Cambodia a few years back with a mission group. Keen to learn some history about the atrocities of the Pol Pot regime, I visited various war museums including the horrific sight of a prison camp where human bones including skulls of murdered prisoners where displayed in a huge glass display house. Frightenly disturbing as this was I and was then shown a very large tree and told that this tree was used by prison guards to smash babies to their death.
    Really, Bill, the crime is no different, only the instrument is the difference.

  • Bill, thank you as always for your ministry and excellent cultural commentaries.

    Your article above makes for very powerful and disturbing reading.

    Prompted by reading your piece (and by that haunting accompanying image of the aborted child’s soul consoling her grieving mother), I searched for and came across an article on post-abortion trauma, published by the Catholic News Agency (USA), January 15, 2018.
    URL: http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/what-eminem-has-to-say-about-post-abortion-regret-67703

    In the article, Project Rachel’s Vicki Thorn reminds us that abortion doesn’t affect women alone; it also affects their husbands/boyfriends and any children they subsequently have. These children eventually come to realise, at some point in their lives, that they have a missing sibling. The discovery is devastating for them.

    Why are our lawmakers and so many of our churches reluctant to acknowledge and confront these realities?

  • Many thanks for that John.

  • if we were allowed to show the children presently crying for our climate – extinction rebellion – images of babies torn apart or born alive and discarded we would I’m sure we would have a weeping army. Perhaps then adults might also react with appropriate horror.

  • Sorry Bill you already have it on your post

  • No probs Jim. Well worth drawing attention to.

  • I once attended a gathering of priests and others to discuss and promote Native Title. That issue was seen to be the leading issue in the church of the day. One priest asked about the 70,000 abortions performed each year in Australia at the time (the 70;s), the response was that issue is too big. These children still wait beneath the altar of sacrifice and cry to God for justice. God assures them that he is coming soon.

  • This is a wonderful article Bill, thank you. I recall teaching a class of senior students this subject many years ago. After a rather explicit video, one of the girls remarked: ‘I always believed in abortion until I saw the baby in the bucket.’

  • Yes Bill, abortion is horrific and should be stopped. Wonderful to see the turn out in NSW Pro-Life protest on Sunday. We give God the glory.
    Just been reading 2 Samuel 12.23. (after the death of King David’s and Bathsheba’s baby son).

    2 Samuel 12: 23. NLT. But why should I fast (king David speaking) when he is dead? Can I bring him back again? I will go to him one day (heaven) but he cannot return to me.”

    this scripture tells us that all these little babies are with the Lord Jesus Christ. (not limbo as some teach) . Jesus has made atonement for these little ones as well. God is Great.
