Matthew 10:26So do not be afraid of them. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.”


(Botched abortion rushed across street from Hope Clinic to hospital)


            The Michael family remnant stood outside the largest metro-east newspaper, the Belleville News-Democrat, to expose the continual cover-up of women being butchered inside the notorious late-term Hope abortion mill and nothing is being reported, even though two more lawsuits have been filed within the past six weeks against Hope Clinic chop shop and personnel. 

            Nowadays, you won’t see pictures of women lying on a kitchen table mutilated in a pool of blood; today they are lying in an emergency room hours, days, or weeks later full of fetal parts or infection, hemorrhaging, or all of the above. We notified and even spoke with the editor of this McClatchy paper and we were guaranteed that if a lawsuit was filed against this abortion clinic, they would write the article.

            A Belleville News-Democrat reporter came out and asked us why we were there. Daniel replied, “Because the paper would not print the unsafe conditions at Hope Clinic. We care about women! Why aren’t you reporting the truth?” Daniel handed her several copies of recently filed lawsuits of butchered women. This was a heavy traffic area as many cars were giving us thumbs-up and honks of support after reading our signs.

         Daniel told reporter Brian Brueggemann, “If women are being butchered and you won’t report it, then we will let the public know about the unsafe conditions and the lack of news coverage by this paper! We will be out here once a week until you report the truth.” 

            We have witnessed many ambulances pulling up to this mill or women being rushed across the street inside the hospital to patch these botched abortions up and get them back on the roadway where they are no longer the abortion mill’s problem.

            If this were a puppy mill or horse farm and animals were being harmed or butchered, it would be on the front page of the newspaper. Aren’t women important? And when they trust in supposed professionals who inflict gross negligence and medical malpractice, shouldn’t the public be made aware?

            Back alley abortions, as the name suggests, happened in locations (such as in a back alley or other non-medical facility) before the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion. These procedures were often performed by people who weren't medical professionals and were illegal--as were all abortions--and had a higher chance of death for the woman undergoing the abortion than is true now, simply because now it is legal for abortions to be performed in sanitary environments by medical professionals.

            Except, according to one recent lawsuit against Hope Clinic filed by a plaintiff who survived her botched abortion, it was questionable personnel who did her late-term abortion; it was not the physician who signed off. She suffered medical complications and was taken to a hospital for surgery to stop the bleeding. Hope personnel agreed to perform the risky abortion knowing of a serious pre-existing medical condition and although one abortionist previously refused to terminate.            

        When this hemorrhaging woman phoned Hope Clinic scared and bleeding, they requested her to produce twenty more dollars that she did not have. So much for compassion. 

            Hope Clinic has been cited for unsanitary conditions and had to hire a power cleaning crew in the evening to fumigate and scrub the torture rooms down. Read: http://smallvictoriesusa.com/Articles/2007/Hope%20Clinic%20Taken%20to%20the%20Cleaners%20Jul%2007.html

            Legalizing abortion simply gave the back-alley physician/butcher permission to put his shingle on the front door. Abortion remains very much the same today as it was in 1960, particularly regarding the first-trimester abortion techniques. The risk now comes from the huge increase in the sheer numbers of abortions done on a daily basis.  

            In Granite City it is an assembly line inside this butcher shop when you watch 40-50 women on average walking inside and only hours later coming back out with their little brown bags. The abortionist wants to spend only seven minutes on a first trimester and twenty minutes on a second/ third trimester. “Once they are patched up and on the highway, they are no longer my problem”

            In the second lawsuit, this young 17-year-old was under the impression that professionals were doing her late-term abortion. They rushed her through and attempted to dismember her unborn baby and left fetal body parts inside her uterus which led to fever, bleeding, and her female organs were full of infection from the decomposing baby. In order for the hospital and emergency room doctors to save her life they had to remove all of her female organs. She is now sterile.

             Legal and safe? That’s a lie. Women don’t choose to be butchered and left sterile when seeking a legal abortion. This supposed safety net legalizing abortion was to ensure women would not return to unsanitary and unsafe mutilations. It was an emotionally charged issue. It played on the public’s sympathy and was a big reason why the Supreme Court fell for the lie. Coat hanger stigma has not been removed from society. The back alley abortionist now comes through the front doors and charges more money.         

            Why is the media standing at bay and not making the public aware of the substandard medical treatment and practices that go on inside these unregulated abortion mills such as Hope(less)? Over the past 15 years we have consistently reported these lawsuits and deaths or abortive women lying in comas. If abortion is legal, should it not be safe? And where is the outcry from abortion rights advocates such as NOW, NARAL, Emily’s List, and Refuse & Resist? I thought they were all about women’s rights and accessibility to safe birth control/abortion on demand. The tattoo parlors are better regulated.

            If a surgeon in the hospital across the street was botching his surgeries shouldn’t he be removed from the operating room?  Shouldn’t the public know? Then why are we allowing the back alley abortionists to get a free pass to harm one after another abortion-bound women?

            In combating the true back alley abortions bottom line: Abortion is not good medical care; it’s murder. It hurts women and goes against the feminist creed. Women deserve better and society has an obligation to speak out and protect women against willful injury or death and to hold those who would negligently or maliciously inflict…accountable.

            Jeremiah 16:17My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from Me, nor is their sin concealed from My eyes.”

            God calls us to be His messengers and deliver His mail.
