(LifeSiteNews) — When it comes to advocating new forms of feticide, abortion activists always lie. Their latest and most egregious campaign is two-fold: the mainstreaming of “at-home” abortions, in which women can simply take abortion pills at home without supervision, often through “pills-by-post”; and attacking those doctors who seek to offer hope to women who change their minds after taking the pills. Abortion activists also lie about the reality that at-home (or DIY “do-it-yourself”) abortions are dangerous to both mothers and children. 

Fortunately, abortion activists are failing in their attempts to persecute doctors who offer APR—abortion pill reversal. Most recently, Dr. Dermot Kearney of the UK had all sanctions against him dropped after an investigation by the General Medical Council into his provision of APR found no wrong-doing. Women will still have access to this essential pro-life treatment, against the wishes of activists who want them to be trapped into an irreversible decision once the abortion process has begun. To consider the opposition of “pro-choice” activists to APR is to consider the face of evil. 

The reality is that many women in the UK are taking abortion pills past both the legal and the recommended limit—sometimes intentionally, and sometimes through ignorance. This has resulted in murder investigations after babies were born alive and died when it was no longer legal to kill them (something that has happened in both the UK and the US). It has also resulted in a spike in coerced abortions, as revealed by a study commissioned by the BBC—with 1 in 20 women ages 18-24 given abortion pills without their knowledge or consent.

The Surgi-Center, a Washington, D.C. abortion clinic infamous for offering late, second trimester abortions, and its owner, abortionist Cesare Santangelo, are at the center of a scandal involving possible violations of federal laws against partial-birth abortion and infanticide.

In an exclusive video interview with LifeSiteNews, Lauren Handy, the director of activism at Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU), told LifeSiteNew's Editor-in-Chief, John-Henry Westen that, with the help of a whistleblower, her organization rescued and properly buried the remains of about one hundred aborted babies from Santangelo's Surgi-Center.

But, five of the deceased babies were so large and so developed that they suspected the Surgi-Center of engaging in the illegal practices of partial-birth abortion or infanticide (i.e., killing the child after birth) à la Kermit Gosnell.

The shocked pro-lifers then gave the aborted babies to the police and brought the matter to the attention of the D.C. Medical Examiner's office. But, the Medical Examiner's office has refused to take any action, saying they will not perform autopsies on the babies.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the Department of Justice, asking them to launch an investigation into alleged violations of federal law by Santangelo and the D.C. Surgi-Center, under either the Partial Birth Abortion Act (2003) or the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (2002). *Anyone - no matter where you reside - can sign this petition!

Unfortunately, the story doesn't end there.

Handy and eight of her fellow pro-life rescuers in PAAU are, themselves, now facing jail-time after being arrested by the FBI for conducting a traditional pro-life sit-in in October, 2020, at the very same abortion center from which the late-term deceased babies (mentioned above) were rescued.

Please note that the two events - the pro-life rescue in 2020 and the gruesome discovery of the five near-to-full-term babies in the Surgi-Center's "bio-medical waste" earlier this year - are almost one-and-a-half years apart.

Thus, Handy believes that their recent arrest is no coincidence...and, moreover, that the FBI is being used to create a smokescreen by arresting her and the other pro-lifers.

At the same time, the D.C. Medical Examiner's office does not seem interested in discovering the truth about the deaths of the five aborted babies and possible illegal partial-birth abortions or infanticide happening at the D.C. Surgi-Center.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the Department of Justice, asking them to launch an investigation into alleged violations of federal law by Santangelo and the D.C. Surgi-Center, under either the Partial Birth Abortion Act (2003) or the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (2002).

The DOJ press release claims that the pro-lifers: "engaged in a conspiracy to create a blockade at the reproductive health care clinic to prevent the clinic from providing, and patients from receiving, reproductive health services."

But, commenting on the arrest, Lauren Handy stated: "Media reports have stated that we ‘invaded’ the abortion center and ‘disrupted’ women from exercising their ‘reproductive rights’. No, that is not what we did."

"We entered the clinic and sought to love the women who were already there for their abortion procedures," Handy said. "We tried to offer them help so they would choose life. We non-violently defended the unborn who were about to be exterminated – the innocent, the most vulnerable, killed in horrific acts of violence and treated as so much trash."

Tireless pro-life activist Dr. Monica Miller, the director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society and leader of Red Rose Rescue, told LifeSiteNews that "this is the first time any of them are facing federal charges. That the rescuers were hunted down by FBI agents is unprecedented in the history of pro-life activism."

All of this...possibly...for discovering five near-or-at-term aborted babies at Cesare Santangelo's D.C. Surgi-Center, and for seeking to give justice and dignity to the murdered babies.

The truth now needs to come out!

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the Department of Justice, asking them to launch an investigation into alleged violations of federal law by Santangelo and the D.C. Surgi-Center, under either the Partial Birth Abortion Act (2003) or the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (2002).

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition!

All of this means that we’re going to see many more stories like this one, exposed recently by UK Right to Life 

A baby died in a hospital in Yorkshire after his mum took an abortion pill while she was 30 weeks pregnant. An unnamed mother from East Yorkshire gave birth in a toilet at York Hospital after taking a medical abortion pill, apparently after being told her baby was at just 12 weeks’ gestation when, in fact, she was 30 weeks pregnant.  

After the mother unexpectedly gave birth, having taken the abortion-inducing drug mifepristone, hospital staff realised that the baby was alive and did everything they could to resuscitate him. Named Ronnie by his parents, desperate attempts to save his life were made. However, Ronnie had multiple organ failure, and even after being placed on a ventilator, he died four days later. 

An inquest was held into the baby’s death but did not confirm whether gestational scans of Ronnie were performed or not. Senior coroner Professor Paul Marks summarized the case: “Ronnie was born alive on October 26, 2021, after a legal termination of pregnancy by the internal use of drug mifepristone. He was deemed as being viable and was resuscitated and then treated at the Jessop Wing in Sheffield. Despite this, his condition deteriorated relentlessly.” 

The termination was legal only because Ronnie’s mother thought he was 12 weeks along rather than 30—otherwise, Ronnie would have been protected by law. A mistake regarding his age proved to be fatal, and despite all attempts to save his life, he died. His parents are understandably devastated. They were lied to by abortion activists and told that a “termination” was merely ending a pregnancy, not killing a little boy or a little girl. They believed those lies, for reasons that we do not know. Because they believed those lies, Ronnie was killed with pills. 

Again: Ronnie’s story will unfold over and over again as abortion pills become the norm. This is the world abortion activists are intent on building, and it is a cruel one. A toilet is no place for a baby to be born—or for a baby to die.
