Various media outlets, including the Idaho Statesman, have run stories on a horrible abortion machine based in Maryland, but operating in some four different eastern states. The heinous operation received national scrutiny because of the serious injury to a woman looking for a late-term abortion. Her injuries were so serious that emergency room doctors called in a "Life Flight" to take the woman to John Hopkins University.

The principal abortionist, Steven Brigham, has had his license to practice "medicine" suspended or revoked by five different states over the past 18 years. Yet his need for quick cash, and the demand for a way to dispose of preborn children has kept him in business.

This story provides America with a peek into who is involved in the mechanized death of babies, and how they view babies. It is, as it were, a glimpse into a dark closet aided by a flashlight. If we want to see how women and babies are regarded by those who profit from baby murder - we must have the courage to stand in the doorway and truly wrestle with the dark secrets hidden inside.

Of the many horrors one will find are the frozen remains of killed babies - many who were virtually full-term prior to their destruction at Brigham's hands. Dozens of babies were found by police in freezers at the abortionist's office. Looking for some kind of medical explanation, police were questions went unanswered.

We are reminded by a columnist with the Catholic Register that this Maryland horror show is not an isolated incident. Another abortionist, this one in Philadelphia, was found to have stored his killed victims in glass jars, like so many trophies. We have first-hand testimony from an Idaho woman that at least one Boise abortionist kept a jarred supply of his tiny victims in his office for "scientific" purposes.

What are average folks to make of this very dark practice? It is hard enough to understand why a guy with a medical degree would turn to destroying life when he has the skills to safeguard it; it is nearly beyond imagination why a person would fill a meat locker with his handiwork.

About the only thing that comes to mind by way of explanation is the practice of several infamous serial killers, who seemed so infatuated with death, with their own psychotic sense of power, that they found it impossible to let their victims go. They surrounded themselves with their victims by burying them under the house or packing them in freezers.

Let's have the courage to draw the connections between such killers and those who prey upon defenseless babies in the womb.

Are these the men and women we want to hold such power over the health and lives of American women? Is this the best we can offer women in trouble?

You can add RU-486 to the list of threats to women being covered-up by our government and the scientific community. We talked last week about breast cancer and increased risk of premature births – now it seems the FDA continues to stall around on the risks posed by chemical abortions.

Despite the deaths of at least five American women following use of RU-486, the FDA told members of Congress that “we don’t yet know whether chemical abortions increase the probability of getting this often fatal infection.”

And they are certainly not prepared to pull the drug from the market.

One wonders: Exactly what is the job of the FDA? And how many women will have to die before “science” comes to their rescue? Without doubt the primary victims of legalized abortion are the tiny innocents; but women are themselves being sacrificed on the altar of feminist politics.

Their only hope comes from members of Congress who listened to that brain-damaged testimony.

There have been other strange events surrounding consideration of SB1482, which offer amendments to Idaho’s Informed Consent law. The House passed the bill overwhelmingly Monday, but not before great melodrama about the threat of breast cancer and abortion.

If possible, things continue to get even stranger.

Julie Lynde of the Cornerstone Institute has been distancing herself from Rep. Bill Sali’s call to give women information about the risk of breast cancer before they commit abortion. Lynde told reporters she doesn’t believe scientific research backs the link.

That happened last year as well, after Rep. Ann Rydalch introduced HB196. That bill specifically required the State of Idaho to ensure that women were made aware of the massive body of research regarding the linkage between abortion and breast cancer.

Concerned Women for America has a summary of that scientific research on its website:

  • 29 of 38 epidemiological studies found increased breast cancer risk
  • 13 of 15 American studies found increased risk
  • One study, by Dr. Janet Dahling of Seattle, found that teenage girls are 800% more likely to get breast cancer after a first-pregnancy abortion.

Cornerstone’s own website talks about some of those very studies.

Every credible pro-Life group I know of has been fighting for years to arm women and girls with this essential knowledge, and Sali should be lauded for standing up. After all, the pro-Life movement should be as concerned about women as we are preborn children.

That battle is made more difficult by the intimate political connections between pro-abort groups like Planned Parenthood and much of the medical establishment. There is the further complication of raw greed: Breast Cancer has become a very profitable industry. There is plenty of “green reason” for various organizations to lead a propaganda effort against research proving a link.

No doubt the abortion industry draws great succor from Mrs. Lynde’s public comments.
