After seven months, a grand jury in Texas has cleared Douglas Karpen of infanticide charges (killing babies born alive after late term abortions) in his Houston clinic.
No Indictment for Abortionist Accused of Killing Babies Born Alive.
Karpen’s accusers were his former employees, who photographed the clinic and some of the dead babies, and provided information to Life Dynamics and Operation Rescue. They claimed that he had falsified records, had done abortions after the 24 week limit, and killed babies who were born alive after his procedures.

In the Third video of Live Action’s Inhuman series, Dr. Laura Mercer at the Family Planning Associates Medical Group in Phoenix Arizona tells us more than we want to hear about late term abortion at her facility.
A counselor fills in the blanks, assuring the pregnant Live Action investigator that if the baby is born alive, “They will not recuscitate”. Digoxin injection is pushed at the clinic as being a way to reduce suffering and make sure the baby is born dead, but it is not a required part of the procedure.

The first part of video three features Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt explaining that the mother and the abortionist should be the ones to decide what to do to a baby if it is born alive after an abortion attempt. Then it details the policies and procedures at the Arizona Family Planning Associates Medical Group.
At the Washington Surgi-Clinic in our nation’s capital, the Live Action undercover team catches abortionist Cesare Santangelo describing his manner of bypassing the requirements of the Born Alive Infants Protection Act.
He informs us that the worst thing his clients could do is panic and go to the hospital if they go into labor during the laminaria treatments. Then they could be stuck with a baby. If the patients wait, and come to him, he could assure them that the baby would not survive. His method of preventing survival is to sever the umbilical cord and cause the baby to bleed out.

For decades, early delivery has been a preferred method for late term abortions, because it allows practitioners to avoid the surgical mishaps, perforations, infections, and lawsuits. This procedure, when done after viability, leads to infanticide. The baby is either killed actively or by exposure or medical neglect.
Don’t forget to tweet or otherwise pass this along in social media, because the media does not want people to know what’s going on in America’s abortion clinics.
Late-Term Abortionist Martin Haskell Allowed to Avoid Ohio Law | LifeNews.com.
Much to the disgust of Sharonville Mayor Vergil Lovitt, late term abortionist, Martin Haskell, has been granted a special variance to skirt the Ohio law requiring him to have a transfer agreement or priveleges at an area hospital in order to operate an abortion clinic.
Governor Ted Strickland allowed an exception which permitted the opening of Haskell’s new clinic in Sharonville, the Women’s Med Center at 11250 Lebanon Road. His health department director, Ted Wymyslo subsequently liberalized the variance, so that it extends indefinitely, past the retirement of Haskell. The clinic operates by having his partner, Roselyn Kade and two off site doctors, David Schwartz and Walter J Bowers handle emergency situations (botched abortions).
Mayor Lovitt says that there have already been such mishaps within a year of the clinic opening, and specifically mentioned two of them. Says the mayor: ” These complications are difficult to track and there are probably more than we know.”
One of the functions of the HIPAA regulations is to generate fear of reporting such events as abortion complications, and medication related adverse effects, so the Mayor is most certainly correct.
Other Haskell abortion facilities continue to operate in Dayton, Ohio, and Indianapolis, Indiana.
