How Late Term?

From SpiritDaily:
In a fashion that can only be described as macabre, Dr. Tiller's clinic not only killed the unwanted child in chilling fashion, but offered: photographs of the mother with the child (if the parents wanted this, before disposal), "baptism" by a chaplain who regularly dropped by, footprints, handprints, a certificate of miscarriage, cremation, a urn, or burial in Wichita or wherever the mother chose. We had a link Monday showing one mother who terminated her baby for cystic fibrosis and posed cuddling the gruesomely aborted infant on a bed with flowers and a picture of Jesus. We [SpiritDaily] removed the link because it is simply too upsetting.

Note: www.DrTiller.com is offline and even the Google cache has been cleared. Perhaps they are not as proud of his work
However, I did find a copy of this picture of the woman with her aborted baby, which is as Michael Brown described it, macabre.

or Google search Dr. George Tiller abortion baby for cystic fibrosis

Hello JayG -

If you get a chance, look at my blog - I posted an audio file of Dr. Tiller - it was sent to me by Fr. Pavone - Very disturbing...

God bless!

Thanks Brian, great blog. That Tiller tape is creepy.

We know that change of hearts do not come from murder, but from conversion. It's a shame because now we have lost any possible opportunity to have convert Dr. Tiller to be pro-life.

Remember as Catholics we converted Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who wrote "A Journey from Death to Life by the Abortion Doctor Who Changed His Mind The Autobiography of Dr. Bernard N. Nathanson, M.D." at one time he was on the board for NARAL

HLI just had an article about the Serbian version of Dr. Nathanson. The Europeans could not believe anyone would convert like that. So they went to see him. Dr. Stoyan Adasevic

Any abortion is disturbing, but these late term ones are most disturbing of all.

Thanks RAnn,

Regarding Cystic Fibrosis and the unborn, I'm a gene carrier didn't realize they were doing genetic testing on me with the routine pre-natals. To think if I was conceived as an embryo through IVF, I wouldn't be worthy of implantation.

Just today in the Lowell Sun, they highlighted a man with CF, who at the time won his high school basketball championship and now at 36 still living well.

I honestly believe that many people who call themselves 'pro-choice' aren't necessarily pro-abortion. What they see is a pregnant woman who has been stripped of support systems, that women need to care for their baby. Abortion simply seems to be the easy route out of the situation.

People are very hesitate to help women who are pregnant, if she is deemed too young to have a baby, rejected by the father (married or not), or rejected by her family. They feel they are supporting behavior ill-suited to the norms of society. I cringe when people go off on 'welfare mothers', and place all of the fault on them. The fact is she pregnant, with a child, and individual in of itself.

Women never feel empowered by abortion, yes I'll say never. It's not biological to want to do that to your body and to your child, unless under immense stress or pressure in the same way a mammal in the wild would abandon her baby after birth. While we need to always support tradition systems of caring for baby and mom, women will be rejected and we need to be very charitable to help these women so they can mother their child.

I'm sure many people who self-describe as "Pro-Choice" would not keep that label if they realized the coercion and pressure put on the mom. Abortion is presented as the answer, the only real answer to a problem pregnancy. That's not a choice.
