A Dead New Year’s Baby Is Found...

By Angela Michael, Jan. 1, 2010.


As of the day we celebrated Thanksgiving in 2010, America had seen over 53 million abortions “legally performed” since the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision

From the Editor: The article below appeared exactly one year ago; it received no headlines and it was read by just a handful of our fellow citizens, albeit it should have been the lead story by at least the media that proclaims itself to defend conservative values. We are including it in our publication and entreat all of our brethren to contemplate the treacherous topic of abortion for what it truly is: the willful, first-degree murder of the most innocent and defenseless of His creation, a baby in his or her mother’s womb. We implore all of our readers to join the rest of our citizenry on January 22nd, as we all make our voice heard on the treacherous anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision anniversary. Let us comprehend and teach ourselves, our family, our brethren that abortion is not a political issue, but a moral issue that has become politicized!

A fresh blanket of snow covered the ground as a speeding ambulance chased down a two lane country road in the cold night, leading to a small Illinois metro-east hospital in Maryville, Illinois transporting a newborn baby boy. He had been born within the hour and first-responders were working feverishly to revive his tiny body. Inside the emergency room they were met with resuscitation equipment, but it was too late. He was pronounced dead on arrival.

Another late-term botched abortion. The mother, a 16 year old, delivered him in the toilet after starting her three-day abortion procedure over at Granite City’s little slaughterhouse, Hope Clinic for Women, on Tuesday. Missouri abortionist and former felon Allen Palmer was the hired assassin. She stated that the abortion staff kept giving her injections. The next night, she went into full term labor, went into the bathroom, and delivered her baby boy into the cold waters of the toilet. She left him to call Hope Clinic. She notified the on-call person of the situation. They told her to, “Bring the baby in a bag back to the clinic in the morning.” She panicked and called 911.

At the hospital, emergency personnel took one look at the baby and were saddened and disgusted. They listened to the mother’s abortion sequence and the abortion mill’s response to her emergency home delivery. Just on appearances, this little one was perfectly formed, but dead on arrival. He was 3 lbs. 5 oz. and 31 weeks gestation. In just nine weeks he would have been considered full-term.

The hospital has called for a full investigation. Illinois supposedly does not allow babies to be killed after viability at 24 weeks, so we have placed several calls to local law enforcement demanding a thorough investigation. Who is policing and regulating abortion mills in Illinois ? No one. Do we expect the abortion mill to use the scout’s honor code? That’s like asking the fox to guard the hen house.

This baby would have survived. It appears his mother let him drown. She told paramedics she couldn’t handle picking him up out of the toilet, so she left him to die. He was a boy. The abortion mill may try and soothe her and buy her silence. They will whisper, “You just had a miscarriage.” I would agree partly; it was a terrible miscarriage of justice for that little boy. Who will be his voice? The revelers are busy with welcoming the new year and the world will go on, but I don’t know how much longer God’s justice can sleep while such savagery abounds.

This horrific incident did not have to happen, but it does every day across our nation, especially inside late-term slaughterhouses such as Hope Clinic. This is not the only late-term baby that has been brought to this very same hospital after a botched abortion from Hope Clinic. The abortion mill gets by with murder and make a lot of money off it. Not only do the death merchants make money off of the abortion fee, but they turn around and sell the baby’s body for medical research and cosmetic firms. That is why they told her to bring the baby back in a bag to the clinic the following day.

This is despicable. Just hours from putting the old year away, and looking forward to welcoming the New Year… This is a wake-up call. This has not only traumatized the young mother for having to face the truth of what she did and having to peer at her little boy’s face lying in the toilet, but also to the first responders who are trained to rescue and save lives. Abortion is evil. It has a rippling effect on everyone involved, even the innocent by-stander sworn to preserve and save lives and do no harm.

It has outraged this metro-east hospital. Hopefully they will not be intimidated by the abortionist and his empire, or their silenced sealed. They need to pursue this complaint and hold the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation accountable for the discrepancies and inhumane treatment inside abortion mills such as Hope Clinic and the less than standard medical ethics. Clean house inside Granite City’s little slaughterhouse, Hope Clinic for Women. Medical professionals know that abortion is the “red-light” district of medicine. Pray for all those involved, especially the eyewitnesses to this senseless event that they have the courage to persevere in their duty to expose the barbaric death of this baby, no matter the cost.

Let this little boy’s short life not fade in vain; let it make a difference in Illinois and in society on how we treat the weakest among us. Let his voice be the messenger. This atrocity must stop! We must bring sanity back into the picture. We are all too aware “What an irony that a society confronted with plastic bags filled with the remains of aborted babies should be more concerned about the problem of recycling the plastic.” (W. Egan).

This is morally and ethically wrong! Anyone with a working heart knows this is wrong. This is not healthcare. With the acceptance of each and every abortion the conscience of our nation is dying. There are two victims in every abortion: A dead baby and a dead conscience…

Innocent blood has a voice, and that voice cries out for justice!
