Pinellas Co Deputies answered a call to to the Vagabond Mobile Home Park, where they found kittens in the freezer of one Rodney Blanchard. Eva Mulder was visiting Blanchard, and when he asked her to get a brew from the freezer, she found the kittens instead. He would not let her remove them, and instead kicked her out. She then called the police, who found four flea ridden kittens, each wrapped in a sandwich bag. The males were still alive, but the female had stopped breathing. The SPCA took custody of the kittens and an adult cat from Blanchard’s trailer. He is jailed for animal cruelty and misdemeanor battery.
Chilled Babies at Christ Hospital, Oaklawn Illinois.
“Last year alone, of the 16 babies that Christ Hospital states were aborted, I am aware of four who were born alive. Each of these babies – two boys and two girls – lived between 1-1/2 and 3 hours. At Christ Hospital one of these babies once lived for almost an entire eight-hour shift. At least two of the second-trimester babies who were aborted last year at Christ Hospital were completely healthy.”
“When I testified before you last July, another nurse who worked at Christ Hospital, Allison Baker, also testified. Allison was not asked back today due to the new limit on the number of witnesses allowed. But last year Allison described walking into the Soiled Utility Room on two separate occasions to find live aborted babies left naked on a scale and the metal counter. She told about the patient that she herself had who didn’t know that her baby might be aborted alive and who did not then want to hold him. After he was taken to the Soiled Utility Room she kept asking, “Is he dead yet? Is he dead yet?” (This testimony is being entered today into the Congressional Record.)”
“Lest you think that Christ Hospital’s live birth abortion practice is uncommon, I am entering into Congressional Record today literature from a March 30, 2001, symposium sponsored by Waukesha Memorial Hospital in Wisconsin that was “reviewed and is acceptable” by the American Academy of Family Physicians, wherein Dr. Washington Hill writes that a “complication” of a mid-trimester labor induction is a “live birth.” The American College of Obstetricians and gynecologists also gave credit hours to physicians for taking this course.”
“After I testified last year, Christ Hospital stopped putting aborted babies to die in the Soiled Utility Room. This past December it unveiled its “Comfort Room.” This is a small, nicely decorated room complete with a First Foto machine in case parents want pictures of their aborted babies, baptismal supplies if parents would like their aborted babies baptized, and a foot printer and baby bracelets if parents would like keepsakes of their aborted babies. There is also a wooden rocker to rock these babies to death. (Pictures entered into Congressional Record.)” -7-12-2001
The practice of allowing premature babies to die of exposure, cold, and neglect was vigorously defended by then State Senator Barack Hussein Obama. Illinois could not make the following practice illegal (2005) until Obama left the state to serve in the U.S. Senate. Prior to this, (8/5/2002), President Bush signed the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, which had no opposition, even among the abortion supporting Senators and Representatives.
