The Horrors of Abortion

If you are squeamish or have young children listening, turn the radio down now because I'm about to tell you of another "house of horrors" similar to that of convicted baby killer Kermit Gosnell.

In Houston, Dr. Douglas Karpen has been accused by four former employees of delivering live babies during third-trimester abortions and killing them by either snipping their spinal cords, stabbing a surgical instrument into their heads, or twisting their heads off their necks with his own hands. This, according to the former employees and a video released by Operation Rescue. The former employees also said when the babies were too big he would have to pull them out of the womb in pieces.

Authorities are investigating. Of course if he killed them in the womb, that's legal. Maybe if the public could see pictures of this child sacrifice, opinions would change. Some do, but polls show most pro-abortion people remain stuck in their positions. It proves what I have long said: abortion isn't the cause of our decadence; it's a reflection of it.

In New York, I'm Cal Thomas.
