May 14, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Texas abortionist who is now facing a possible criminal investigation would regularly allow late-term babies to be born alive, then twist their heads off with his bare hands, according to three of his employees.
“Most of the time the fetus [sic] would come all the way out before he either cut the spinal cord or introduced one of the instruments into the soft-spot of the fetus in order to kill the fetus,” said Deborah Edge, one of the employees in a videotaped interview. “Either that or twisting the head off the neck with his own bare hands.”
“Most of the time…the fetus would come completely out, and of course, the fetus would still be alive,” she said, adding that the doctor's assistants could see the newborns breathing.
The abortionist also suffocated babies by putting his finger down their windpipes, and placed living babies inside trash bags.
Life Dynamics, Inc., conducted an interview with three female employees of the Texas late-term abortion facility run by abortionist Douglas Karpen on May 3. Karpen runs the Aaron Women’s Clinic in Houston.
Life Dynamics has disclosed only that the facility is not located in Pennsylvania. Life Dynamics founder and President Mark Crutcher told LifeSiteNews, that this new abortionist is comparable not only to Gosnell but to all abortionists. Asked if this was the worst he'd ever heard of, Crutcher replied, “When you deal with this every day and you see what these people do, it's hard to say; It's like deciding if Auschwitz was worse than Dachau.” This is, he said, “every day abortion, when you have legal abortion things like this happen.”
“I think every morning I saw several” acts of infanticide outside the womb, Edge said. Of every 20 babies aborted, three-to-four were “completely delivered” before being murdered.
One baby, whom the doctor believed had died, was born alive, opened its eyes, and clutched the abortionist's finger, the three women remembered.

Live births were common inside and outside his offices, they said.
Krystal Rodriguez said she witnessed another baby born alive on the facility's hallway floor. The abortionist “put it in a trash bag,” she said.
“On some occasions, we had women that were, the fetuses were falling into the toilet,” Edge said.
Once, a baby who was intended to be aborted in the office was delivered in a McDonald's toilet and left to die.
“They stopped there in the morning, and the fetus was left in the toilet,” Edge said. “No one ever found out whose fetus it was, but it was one of his patients. We knew it…she was supposed to be in the clinic.”
A jury, composed of mostly “pro-choice” members, convicted Gosnell of three counts of first-degree murder on Monday. One of those involved a baby who was born in a toilet and struggled to get out.
Many of the babies were beyond the state's legal limit and possibly viable, the women stated on camera. “A lot of the times, we would bring the big fetus that were over age, we would reopen the bag and just look at it and be like, 'Oh my gosh, it’s so big!'”
Some late-term babies were so large, the doctor “couldn’t get the fetus out. He would yank pieces – piece by piece – when they were oversized,” Edge said.
She said she would regularly be covered in blood, and her own tears, as the two other women nodded solemnly.
The baby's size, and the law, were no impediments in his eyes, they stated. “As long as the patients had the cash, he was going to do it,” Rodriguez said. “We would always think he was so greedy,” Edge added. Gosnell was convicted of falsifying evidence to abort late-term babies.
Like Gosnell, the doctor in question showed disregard for the patients' safety, as well. Rodriguez said the doctor would sometimes insert the instruments through the woman's stomach, if it was the easiest way to kill the baby.
Edge said she routinely observed the doctor “hurting patients on the table” and not telling victims of botched abortions that he had lacerated their cervixes or uteruses.
“If he had a patients that asked a lot of questions, he would prefer for them to be put to sleep,” said Gigi Aguilar, a third employee.
“The women who go there had no idea what they were getting themselves into,” Deborah said.
The footage proves the actions and conditions represented inside Kermit Gosnell's West Philadelphia “house of horrors” were anything but anomalous Crutcher, stated.
“During Gosnell’s trial, it became clear that organizations like Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Federation, and others within the pro-choice community were fully aware of what Gosnell was doing — but they kept quiet because this was a rock they did not want the public looking under,” said Crutcher, who founded Life Dynamics in 1992. “What they knew, and wanted to keep hidden, was that everything being done at this abortion clinic was within the standard operating procedures for every other abortion clinic in the country.”
As of the filming, the abortion facility remains open to the public.
