Passing the Torch in the City of Slaughter

October 25, 2012

Written by Angela Michael



            Pictured above is new abortion mill director Tamara Threlkeld wheeling yet another botched abortion victim. This victim suffered life threatening complications this past May inside the Midwest’s largest, late-term abortion mill: Hope Clinic in Granite City, Illinois. Back in 2009, a New York publication interviewed former death camp director Sally Burgess. Burgess whined that the abortion industry was having difficulties in finding abortionists to kill babies and the veteran employees were getting up in years with no one to replace them. Well, it appears the bloody torch has been passed.


            We first began noticing Tamara Threlkeld in early 2011 with her various flamboyant styles of clothing and hair color. Sally was a bit more reserved in appearance and only hung a machete from her hip at times. Tamara walks by as loudly as she can to be noticed. Her arms are covered in tags or sleeves, tattoos. Sometimes we would catch her carrying several large bottles of bleach inside the slaughterhouse. At times, three little girls approximately aged 6, 8, and 11 would accompany her inside the abortion mill. Maybe she is a mom and it was “Take your daughters to work day”?

            We documented the departure of Sally Burgess this past July. Mr. Sally (William) Burgess was last seen at the end of June visiting Hope Clinic where his wife oversaw the slaughter of thousands of babies during her tenure of approximately 22 years. Lately, she has been splitting her time between killing babies and teaching Pilates classes in Edwardsville, Illinois. Sally and our ministry clashed several times in debates, in courtrooms, and in media interviews. Former workers clued us in on the “family bond” among Hope staffers that Sally Burgess reinforced during bi-weekly reviews of employees. “Kill together, Chill together.” Sally was also on the board of the NAF, the abortion industry’s protocol police. They didn’t follow their own guidelines in this termination center, according to several former employees. However, we wish her and her family the best.


         Tamara, according to an internet post, attended Creighton University, a Catholic school. As listed under “occupation” it states: “I kick ass and shake up the establishment.” She has lived in several areas of the Midwest, but most recently lived in Fairfield, California.

            This past summer, it was humorous when she walked out with professing Christian and lab tech escort Lauren to take yet another photo of me. The Lord told me her name, and I spoke up as she tried to snap a picture, “Here Tammy, take a picture of this head shot,” and I held up an aborted baby sign. Her face went blank. Lauren lost her smile.  I then firmly rebuked Lauren for killing babies inside Hopeless and claiming that she is a practicing Christian. SHAME! The failure of the American Church. This is what we produce. Both women looking a little surprised turned around and walked back inside the slaughterhouse. Since then, Tamara regularly steps outside the abortion mill blowing kisses to us on the sidewalk. Sometimes she can be heard singing “Amazing Grace” as she strolls up to the slaughterhouse doors.


          Tamara was recently interviewed by a Chicago AP reporter on behalf of the Midwest’s largest late-term abortion refuge in an article titled: “Dozens of states make it hard to get abortions.” Ms. Threlkeld stated that Hope Clinic rarely does late-term abortions and the average abortion is performed up to 12 weeks, “Which is the size of a lima bean.” Really? At twelve weeks a baby is fully formed and has all extremities; the child is just small in proportion. He/She feels and senses pain during an abortion. Look at a picture of a 12 week gestation; pictures don’t lie. The reporter went on to say that if you find yourself at Hope Clinic, you will meet Angela Michael and her signs of dismembered babies. Angela stands there regularly and for decades, and runs graphic pro-life ads on television. “She has compassion for women, but considers abortion murder.” Well, duh?  


         My question is, “Why does it take several days for mostly out-of-state clients to undergo abortions when supposedly their unborn babies are the size of a lima bean?     


            “Woe to the city of blood, full of lies, full of plunder, never without victims. Many casualties, piles of dead, bodies without number, people stumbling over the corpses. All because of the wanton lust of a harlot, alluring, the mistress of sorceries, who enslaved nations by her prostitution, and peoples by her witchcraft.”  Nahum 3:3-4
