Where do they get this bilge?
THE SURVIVORS by William Jaspers
PHYSICAL HANDICAPS AND EMOTIONAL SCARS
ARE AMONG THE WOUNDS INFLICTED ON THE COURAGEOUS SURVIVORS OF THE ABORTION WAR,
YET THEY EMERGE TRIUMPHANT.
WARS ARE BRUTAL, TERRIBLE THINGS, INFLICTING DEATH, DESTRUCTION, AND MISERY ON WHOLE POPULATIONS. ONE OF THE MOST TERRIBLE AND COMMON FEATURES OF WAR IS ITS DESTRUCTIVE IMPACT ON MORAL CONSCIENCE AND COMMON DECENCY. THE "ENEMY" IS FREQUENTLY REDUCED THROUGH PROPAGANDA TO SUB-HUMAN STATUS TO JUSTIFY THE MOST ATROCIOUS BEHAVIOR BY “OUR” SIDE. IN THE PAST THREE DECADES OF THE ABORTION WAR, NEARLY 40 MILLION CHILDREN HAVE BEEN MURDERED IN THE WOMB IN THE UNITED STATES ALONE. THIS HAS BEEN POSSIBLE, LARGELY, BECAUSE OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF AN INSIDIOUS PROPAGANDA CAMPAIGN THAT HAS SUCCEEDED IN CONVINCING MILLIONS OF AMERICANS THAT THE DEFENSELESS, UNBORN CHILD IS NOT A HUMAN, A TINY PERSON, A GIFT FROM GOD, BUT MERELY A DEPERSONALIZED BLOB OF "TISSUE,” TO BE DISPOSED OF IT INTERFERES WITH ONE'S LIFE PLANS OR CAREER TRAJECTORY.
Sarah Smith, Ana Rosa Rodriguez, Gianna Jessen, and their fellow survivors are UNANSWERABLE, LIVING REFUTATIONS OF THIS INCREDIBLE LIE. THEY ARE “BLOBS OF TISSUE” WHO SURVIVED “BOTCHED” ABORTIONS. AGAINST ALL ODDS, THEIR LIVES WERE PRESERVED TO BEAR WITNESS AGAINST THE SPIRIT OF THIS AGE WHICH COUNSELS THAT CONVENIENCE, SELF-INDULGENCE, AND SELF-WORSHIP ARE THE HIGHEST GOOD. THE REFUSAL OF THE PRO-ABORTION ESTABLISHMENT TO REPORT THEIR STORIES IS UNDERSTANDABLE; ANY COVERAGE OF THESE SURVIVORS DEVASTATINGLY EXPOSES THE LIE. ANY PHOTOGRAPH OF THESE MIRACULOUS SURVIVORS INSTANTLY, VISUALLY ESTABLISHES THE FACT OF THEIR HUMANNESS.
Gianna Jessen is a
beautiful, bubbly, talented young lady whose singing and testimony have
delighted, moved, and inspired audiences worldwide. Twenty-two years ago,
Gianna was scheduled for an appointment with death. Because her mother was
already in the 24th week of her pregnancy, THE ABORTIONIST OPTED FOR THE SALINE
METHOD. The doctor injected a saline (salt water) solution into the amniotic
fluid surrounding baby Gianna. In this type of abortion, THE CAUSTIC, TOXIC
SALINE SOLUTION SLOWLY POISONS THE BABY WHILE BURNING ITS TENDER SKIN. Gianna
was supposed to be delivered dead the following day. But God, apparently, had
other plans for this little one. Gianna WAS BORN ALIVE, though small,
premature, and BADLY BURNED AND INJURED FROM THE SALINE ABORTION. A nurse
rushed her from the abortion clinic to a hospital, where she spent the first
three months of her infancy. She was then placed with a foster family
specializing in high-risk babies.
The doctors said Gianna would never be able to sit up by herself, let alone walk, run, jump, and play like “normal” children. THE ABORTION PROCEDURE HAD DEPRIVED HER BRAIN OF OXYGEN AND LEFT HER WITH SEVERE CEREBRAL PALSY. But at the age of three she was defying the medical experts and walking with the aid of a walker. She has undergone a number of painful operations that have enhanced her muscular control and coordination. This writer first interviewed Gianna in 1991, when she was 14 years old (“The Lone Survivor,” December 31, 1991). “I still limp,” the effervescent teenager said, “but I can walk, run, dance, and jump. Maybe not as well as you or a lot of other people, but I do O.K. for me.” In a recent telephone interview, Gianna told The New American that she has added rock climbing to her repertoire of athletic skills.
For the past decade, since the age of 12, when she discovered the truth about her birth, Gianna has been a highly effective champion for the pro-life cause. With an angelic singing voice, a winning personality, and a uniquely compelling and heroic survival story, she has dramatically impacted audiences worldwide. She has spoken at schools, churches, and pro-life conferences throughout the United States and in England, Ireland, Spain, India, Australia, and Mexico.
She also testified before the Constitution Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee on April 22, 1996. On that occasion she said: “I AM HAPPY TO BE ALIVE. I ALMOST DIED. EVERY DAY I THANK GOD FOR LIFE. I DO NOT CONSIDER MYSELF A BY-PRODUCT OF CONCEPTION, A CLUMP OF TISSUE, OR ANY OF THE TITLES GIVEN TO A CHILD IN THE WOMB. I DO NOT CONSIDER ANY PERSON CONCEIVED TO BE ANY OF THOSE THINGS. ”
Gianna continued: "I HAVE MET OTHER SURVIVORS OF ABORTION. THEY ARE ALL THANKFUL FOR LIFE... WHEN I SPEAK, I SPEAK NOT ONLY FOR MYSELF, BUT FOR THE OTHER SURVIVORS… AND THOSE WHO CANNOT YET SPEAK… TODAY, A BABY IS A BABY WHEN CONVENIENT. IT IS TISSUE OR OTHERWISE WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT. A BABY IS A BABY WHEN MISCARRIAGE TAKES PLACE AT TWO, THREE, FOUR, MONTHS. A BABY IS CALLED A TISSUE OR CLUMPS OF CELLS WHEN AN ABORTION TAKES PLACE AT TWO, THREE, FOUR MONTHS. WHY IS THAT? I SEE NO DIFFERENCE. THE BEST THING I CAN SHOW YOU TO DEFEND LIFE IS MY LIFE,” Gianna told the lawmakers. “IT HAS BEEN A GREAT GIFT.” Yet only two of the 13 congressmen on the subcommittee were on hand to hear Gianna’s moving testimony [!]. Abortion supporter Patricia Schroeder (D-CO), who boycotted the hearing, protested that it was intended to “undermine the public’s consistent and overwhelming support for Roe v. Wade.” [!]
But other audiences have been more interested in, and more receptive to, Gianna’s story. Teen audiences, especially, have responded enthusiastically to her Christian testimony and her courageous advocacy of teen chastity in an age of “safe sex” promiscuity. Although HER AMAZING STORY HAS BEEN LARGELY CENSORED BY THE PRO-ABORT MEDIA [!], thanks to The Maury Povich Show, The 700 Club, and Focus on the Family, Gianna’s story has reached national television and radio audiences. In 1995, Dr. James Dobson’s Focus on the Family published a biography of Gianna, entitled GIANNA: ABORTED AND LIVED TO TELL ABOUT IT…
…And what does Gianna Jessen see herself doing ten years from now? “Being a good wife and mother,” she says unhesitatingly. “Not that I’m in a rush to get married now, but a good husband and children — that’s what I want.”
A Representative of the Dead
All babies are miracles, of course, but Sarah Smith’s birth, like that of Gianna Jessen, was doubly miraculous. Sarah’s near-death experience preceded Gianna’s by several years, in 1970, before Roe v. Wade. Sarah’s mother, Betty, DID NOT KNOW SHE WAS CARRYING TWINS when she went to the abortionist in Los Angeles. THE ABORTIONIST, APPARENTLY, DID NOT REALIZE IT EITHER; HIS SEARCH-AND-DESTROY MISSION YIELDED ONLY ONE TINY VICTIM.
“SOMEHOW, MIRACULOUSLY, I SURVIVED!” says Sarah. “MY TWIN BROTHER WASN'T SO LUCKY. ANDREW WAS ABORTED AND WE LOST HIM FOREVER. SEVERAL WEEKS LATER, MY MOTHER WAS SHOCKED TO FEEL ME KICKING IN THE WOMB. She already had five children and she knew what it felt like when a baby kicked in the womb. She instantly knew that somehow she was still pregnant.” Sarah’s mother went back to the doctor and told him she was still pregnant, that she had made a big mistake and that she wanted to keep this baby.
“TO THIS DAY, MY MOTHER DEEPLY REGRETS THAT ABORTION,” says Sarah. “I KNOW THE PAIN IS UNBEARABLE FOR HER AT TIMES WHEN SHE LOOKS AT ME AND KNOWS THAT SHE ABORTED MY TWIN BROTHER. Mom says ‘the protective hand of Almighty God saved my life,’ that God’s hand covered and hid me in her womb, and protected me from the scalpel of death.”…
…Sarah’s life has been painful in many ways, and her future holds more painful surgeries for her. Yet Sarah says SHE CONTINUALLY THANKS GOD SHE SURVIVED THE ABORTION. But the pain is not hers alone and not merely physical. The emotional pain continues, she says, for everyone in her family. “In memory of my brother Andrew, we bought a memorial gravestone and placed it in a cemetery in Southern California. It reads: Andrew James Smith, Twin Brother of Sarah — in our hearts you’ll always be alive — November 1970.”
…"I did not know of the abortion until I was 12 years old…I grew up feeling that I was the same as my friends, except for having numerous surgeries and physical complications. The only difference I felt was an incredible loneliness and a knowledge that something was missing. I never felt whole ... I battled with severe depression… my mother knew it was time to tell me the truth. She sat next to me and took my hand and looked me in the eyes and said, 'SARAH, YOU ARE A TWIN. I ABORTED YOUR TWIN BROTHER AND TRIED TO ABORT YOU. PLEASE KNOW I DID NOT KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING AND I PRAY SOMEDAY YOU ARE ABLE TO FORGIVE ME. I LOVE YOU AND NEED YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE WELCOME PART OF OUR FAMILY.'”
At that moment I knew what I had been missing all my life and that I was called to something much greater than I had knowledge of. Immediately I felt the overwhelming pain of the knowledge that I should be dead. “As I stand before you today… I am painfully aware that this is only possible because my twin brother took a scalpel for me, and I stand in his place and memory, giving him honor and a face.” Statistics are coldly impersonal and cannot convey the human tragedy of the abortion slaughter. “Thirty-two million babies [have been] killed in the United States alone,” she noted. “Yet every one had a face, a life, a Creator who loved them and created them in His image. As you look at me today, you realize that I am no different than you, yet I stand before you today a representative of the dead — a representative of the innocent lives who today may lose their lives. Who will speak for them? The words of Christ are clear — ‘What you have done to the least of these you have done unto me.’ You and I are called and commissioned to care for these little ones just as we would care for Jesus Himself. To walk away and say this is not my problem is to walk away from Jesus Himself.”
Sarah Smith challenged her listeners with these moving words:
Many people upon finding out about the abortion ask me how did I feel, or to what can I compare this to. The only thing I can compare my life to is that of AN INNOCENT JEW [!] BEING MADE TO WALK DOWN THE STREETS OF GERMANY [!] NAKED [!] IN FRONT OF MANY PEOPLE [!] AND INTO A ROOM HE KNOWS HE WILL NEVER COME OUT OF [!!!] [EMPHASIS ADDED]. My case, unfortunately, the people leading me into that room are my mother and father. Yet the people looking on at the sidelines are people like you. And I ask you today, will you speak up or will you silently look away as another person who needs your help is led to their death? I have forgiven my parents long ago as I remember the words Jesus spoke as he hung bleeding and bruised from the cross, “Forgive them Father for they know not what they do.”
His words pertain to the sins of abortion. Most men and women who involve themselves with abortion don’t know what they’re doing, as [was the case with] my parents. Many women who demand the right to an abortion say, “It’s my body, it’s my choice.” Let me make one thing very clear to you today — MY MOTHER'S CHOICE WAS MY DEATH SENTENCE. IT IS NOT ONLY A WOMAN'S BODY WE ARE DISCUSSING IN AN ABORTION. IT IS THE ENTIRE FLESH AND BLOOD OF SOMEONE JUST LIKE ME…
Like Gianna Jessen, Sarah Smith has travelled to many countries to speak out against abortion and the culture of death, and to call people to the Gospel of Life in Jesus Christ. This courageous warrior for Life is currently undergoing more painful surgery and requests the prayers of fellow believers.
… Jim Kelly is largely unknown…His twin sister, Katherine Marie Kelly, was killed by his mother in a self-inflicted abortion 50 years ago, in 1949… Although he did try to commit suicide once as a teenager, while in an institution, he says he is glad to be alive. And, he adds, “THANK GOD THERE WERE NO PLANNED PARENTHOOD ABORTION CLINICS AT THE TIME I WAS BORN OR I WOULDN'T HAVE SURVIVED; THEY WOULD HAVE FINISHED THE JOB.”…
Twenty years ago Christelle Morrison was ABORTED AND LEFT TO DIE NAKED AND HELPLESS IN THE SNOW. At 28 weeks of gestation, Baby Christelle was a mere two pounds, a difficult entry into life under the best of circumstances. But after surviving the abortion, she was abandoned on a bitter cold, 15-degree, Nevada winter night. She was blue and lifeless when found and rushed to a rural emergency clinic. Like Lazarus, however, she came back to life when the clinic physician placed her in a tub of warm water. She was rushed to the Medical Center in Reno, where Registered Nurse Susan Walker and other personnel gave her intensive, loving care. Three months after her traumatic “birth,” the tiny, three-pound Christelle underwent and survived heart surgery.
Susan Walker and her husband ADOPTED THIS MIRACLE THROW-AWAY BABY, WHO IS NOW A YOUNG LADY. According to Mrs. Walker, Christelle is “bright, beautiful, strong and healthy, and probably the most loving person you could ever meet! She is a living testimony of God’s tremendous power and love and of the value of each and every unborn child.”
In 1978, Tina Huffman was a
pregnant, unwed 17-year-old from a broken, dysfunctional home. Her mom and dad,
as well as her boyfriend’s parents, adamantly insisted she had only one option:
abortion. Tina yielded to their demands and had a suction abortion. But THE
ABORTIONIST “MISSED” Baby Heidi, even
though he TOOK MOST OF THE PLACENTA AND AMNIOTIC FLUID. Heidi was delivered by
C-section several months later. From her earliest years, Heidi attended
pro-life rallies, programs and conferences with her mom, and then graduated to
picketing and sidewalk counselling at abortion clinics. SHE IS NOW 21 YEARS
…Lauren Pulliam was never supposed to leave the Planned Parenthood abortion mill alive. SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO LEAVE AS LIFELESS “TISSUE” IN THE TRASH. However, as in the case of Heidi Huffman, the would-be assassin in the medical frock “goofed.” When Lauren’s mom, an unmarried teenager, returned to the abortuary for a checkup, she learned she was still pregnant; Lauren was still there. The Planned Parenthood vultures tried to reschedule her for another session to kill the baby, but she fled their deadly clutches. The troubled teen went to a “respected” obstetrician who, after conducting an ultra-sound, informed her that the baby had “abnormalities” and suggested she should consider re-aborting. But Lauren’s mother refused and carried her almost to full term. Lauren was born one month early. Lauren’s grandparents, who had tried to stop their daughter from having an abortion in the first place and had earnestly prayed for the baby’s life, had their prayers answered. “Our daughter was in labor only twenty minutes,” says Lauren’s grandmother, Pat Pulliam. “The baby was six pounds and absolutely perfect in every way... . Our daughter has been chosen to know the fullness of Christ’s love, care and forgiveness. Our lives will never be the same.”
Nine-year-old Ana Rosa Rodriguez was a 32-week-old “fetus” when her mother, Rosa, went to the New York City abortion chamber of “Doctor” Abu Hayat, the notorious “Butcher of Avenue A.” Even though abortions after the 24th week of pregnancy are illegal under New York law, this was going to be just another of the thousands of routine, late-term abortions performed annually in the state. According to Rosa, who was then 20 years old, she told Hayat that she had changed her mind and didn’t want to go through with the abortion. “He said that it was impossible to stop, that I had to continue,” she told New York Newsday. According to Rosa, Hayat’s assistants held her down while he sedated her. When she awoke, she was told that the abortion was incomplete and that she should come back the following day. That evening, however, she experienced increasing pain and bleeding. Her mother took her to Jamaica Hospital by taxi, where, five hours later, Baby Ana Rosa was born. But Hayat had left his mark upon her; ANA ROSA'S TINY RIGHT ARM HAD BEEN TORN OFF [!] IN THE BRUTAL ABORTION ATTEMPT. Ana Rosa has disappeared from public view, but when last reported, in 1996, she was a perfectly healthy, beautiful, little girl, aside from the abortionist’s stigmata, which she will always bear.
* LITTLE BABY CLAIRE IS ALSO MISSING HER RIGHT ARM [!]. Like Ana Rosa, it was wrenched from her helpless body in the sanctuary of her mother’s womb…
