The Tip of the Iceberg?
We have profiled the case of Dr Kermit Gosnell, the doctor convicted of murdering babies of the poor. The media pretty much ignored the story because it would have brought disrepute to the noble trade of abortion. A “woman’s right to choose” is not to be impugned by a few murdered babies. In all struggles, collateral damage occurs. Nothing to see here. Move along.
But word did get out. The alternative media did a stirling job. Those who care about such things all know the name Kermit Gosnell now–what he did, and what he represents.
Meet Douglas Karpen: The New Kermit Gosnell

Evidence is emerging of another abortion mill where illegal abortions are performed and where full-term babies are regularly born alive and brutally murdered. This one is run by Dr. Douglas Karpen, who appears to be a doctor in good standing with the state of Texas. The Texas Department of State Health Services plan to investigate. Three women have come forward to testify about what they witnessed there as workers.
The story has now made the Mail Online:

A second ‘house of horrors’ abortion clinic is being investigated in Texas, just days after Dr Kermit Gosnell was found guilty of murdering newborns at his Philadelphia termination center.Dr. Douglas Karpen, seen here in court, is accused of killing babies aborted in their third trimester.
Houston doctor Douglas Karpen is accused by four former employees of delivering live fetuses during third-trimester abortions and killing them by either snipping their spinal cord, stabbing a surgical instrument into their heads or ‘twisting their heads off their necks with his own bare hands’.
Other times the fetus was so big he would have to pull it out of the womb in pieces, Karpen’s ex-assistant, Deborah Edge, said in an Operation Rescue video, which has prompted a criminal investigation into the doctor.
‘Sometimes he couldn’t get the fetus out… he would yank pieces – piece by piece – when they were oversize,’ Edge explained. ‘And I’m talking about the whole floor dirty. I’m talking about me drenched in blood.’
Two of Edge’s colleagues, Gigi Aguliar, and Krystal Rodriguez, also described the hellish scenes which took place at the Aaron Women’s Clinic in Houston in 2011, and possibly two other abortion clinics run by Karpen in Texas. Another staffer, who remains anonymous, filed an affidavit with her account of events, which the Texas Department of State Health Services is using in its investigation.
‘We have several people looking into the allegations,’ Harris County District Attorney spokesman Sara Marie Kinney told Chron.com. Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said he had read the allegations ‘with disgust’ before calling for a full investigation into Karpen and his clinics.
Meanwhile, our challenge to all abortionists and their supporters and fellow travellers stands–get out there and defend these guys. They are only being consistent with your perverse ideology. These guys are only taking a “woman’s right to choose” and have “control over her own body” seriously. Stand up and explain to us all why the killing of aborted children born alive is a holy, righteous, and just act.
Your silence to date is starting to look suspiciously like hypocrisy or cowardice or both.
