Many Americans are reeling from the news that deceased abortionist George Klopfer stockpiled 2,246 bodies of his aborted victims in his Illinois home. The White House called for an investigation and the Attorneys General in both Illinois and Indiana announced they will launch a probe.
If abortion advocates claim this abortionist is just an outlier of legal abortion, don’t believe them.
Klopfer lost his medical license in 2015 for providing substandard abortions and failure to report the rape of a thirteen-year-old.
He is the face of legal abortion.
Kermit Gosnell is the most famous example of ghastly back-alley-style legal abortion. He was convicted on three counts of first-degree murder of newborns by severing the back of their necks immediately after birth during late-term abortions. And he was convicted for negligent homicide for the death of Karnamaya Mongar, one of his patients. Gosnell severed the feet of many of his tiny victims and displayed them in jars in his office like trophies. The FBI, when raiding the abortion mill on suspicion of illegal drug prescriptions, called it a “house of horrors.” It was so horrific, Gosnell’s trial and conviction were made into both a book and a movie.
Advocates of abortion and the abortion industry tried frantically to defend their trade, calling Gosnell an “outlier.”
But their desperate attempts at damage control are failing. Gosnell was just the tip of the iceberg, and Klopfer is yet another reminder that, in reality, the legal abortion industry closely resembles a wretched and seedy back-alley-style trade.
Stockpiling the bodies of abortion victims has been done before. Abortionists Nicola Riley and Steven Chase Brigham were arrested when police raided their facility and found the frozen bodies of 35 babies aborted late in pregnancy.
Abortionist Robert Santella at Family Planning Associates in San Diego, California was caught on video engaged in a bizarre, and what some called a demonic rant, against a pro-lifer. After seeing the shocking video, a local hospital fired him, and he eventually lost his license.
Accusations of sadistic, criminal conduct of Douglas Karpen came to light when staff members of this Houston abortionist became informants. They reported that there was no such thing as a pregnancy too advanced to abort if the mother had cash.
Armed with evidence, pictures taken inside his abortion facility, Karpen was accused of brutally killing babies who were born alive. His former staff said he would regularly kill the babies by slitting their throats, forcing an instrument into the soft spot of the baby’s head or twisting the baby’s head off the neck.
Allan Zarkin, a Manhattan abortionist was fined $14,000 by the state Department of Health for using a scalpel to literally carve his initials into the abdomen of a woman while performing a cesarean section. After the assault, he was hired as medical director at Choices Women’s Medical Center, an abortion facility.
Considered by many, on both sides of the abortion debate, to be the most notorious abortionist in America, Steven Chase Brigham’s remaining medical license in Jew Jersey was revoked. He hired abortionist Vikram Kaji as the medical director in the seven New Jersey locations. Kaji pled guilty to sexually assaulting at least three female patients, so a convicted sex offender was treating women.
It’s been said that abortionists are the bottom feeders of the medical community, unable to succeed in legitimate medicine, so they resort to the abortion industry.
Contrary to the deceptive faÁade of the abortion industry — Planned Parenthood chief among them — legal abortion is not safe, clean or about putting women first.
It’s just big business.
