Abortion Death Reported In Massachusetts

Hyannis, MA — Reports are coming out of Massassachusetts that a 22-year old woman died on September 13, 2007, from hemorrhaging caused by an abortion obtained at Women Health Center in the Cape Cod town of Hyannis. The abortionist responsible for the death is reportedly Rapin Osathanondh, who made headlines in 2001 for threatening to murder five hospital nurses in a fit of rage over misplaced paperwork.

A receptionist at Women Health Center responded in to inquiries about the woman’s death with obvious agitation, but would not confirm or deny the abortion death. “I can’t help you,” she told Operation Rescue.

The abortion victim, whose name Operation Rescue is currently withholding, was reportedly a member of a Calvary Chapel church in a nearby town. According to her MySpace page, she was a cosmetologist who was born in Honduras and adopted by an American family. She was engaged to be married.

A complaint has been filed against Osathanondh with the Massachusetts Board of Registration In Medicine regarding the abortion death.

“Our nation is facing a crisis of dangerous abortionists operating in unsafe abortion mills, killing innocent babies — sometimes illegally as we have seen in some states — and injuring and killing unsuspecting women. More must be done to stop these predatory abortion businesses from inflicting additional human tragedy on society,” said Operation Rescue spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger.

“This death also brings to light a serious problem in the Christian community,” said Sullenger. “There simply is not adequate teaching from the pulpits about abortion, and therefore Christians are aborting their babies at a shocking rate. According to some statistics, 68% of women obtaining abortions attend some denomination of Christian church. This shows a shameful failure on the part of American pastors to properly teach their congregations what the Bible says about human sexuality and the sanctity of life. Yet, the majority of pastors who are approached about this problem refuse to deal with it. This denial and refusal to properly pastor their congregations on this matter makes them culpable for these kinds of avoidable tragedies.”

    what a tragedy. the only good thing is that at least she is reunited with her baby. why is abortion always the first answer girls come up with? wouldn’t it be better if she had let her baby live? she could be planning her wedding all the same, and she would be alive. her little baby was a product of her and the man she loved enough to marry..why choose abortion? i will never fully understand it.

  • Let us know when the medical board takes action. Thanks for staying on top of this. Are any locals following the case?

  • Mike

    Another abortion death…from yet ANOTHER maniac “doctor” …

    HOW MANY more women must die before something is done to end this insanity?

    One obvious reason that mothers (and very often fathers, as well) choose to abort, despite a profession of Christian faith, is that we, being human, have human fears and weaknesses. This is understandable.

    But the other– and truly reprehensible one– is that most religions that claim to be Christian are not Christian at all. They’re pagan. They’ve so twisted the fundamentals of Christianity that even the Commandments are no longer observed. Thus, anything goes: divorce and remarriage; homosexuality; ignoring the Sabbath; euthanasia and abortion, etc.

    Oh, you’ll still find a cross on the buildings. (Not that it has any meaning in such a context, of course.) In some of these “churches” all you have to say is “I accept Jesus Christ as my lord and savior” and that’s it. Yer in! Yer saved! Yer goin’ to Heaven, no ifs ands or buts.

    So, let’s be reasonable. As long as it’s THAT easy to be saved, why bother to actually LIVE the Faith?

    Someone need to contact Chuck Smith in California! He needs to instruct all of his Calvary Chapel pastors on how to preach against abortion. We need to stop worrying about global warming and begin to look at what God’s word says about the Shedding of Innocent Blood! Read Troy Newman’s book!!

  • I used to work at a CPC and I am sorry to say that we do occasionally see Christian women from evangelical churches considering abortion. They are aware it is wrong, and why it is wrong.

    However, the pressure in my experience comes from the fact that if they carry the baby to term, everyone will know they fornicated.

    That’s usually the motivation. I don’t think they need instruction about the sinfulness of abortion. Perhaps about the sinfulness of pride. Also, they need to know that the church and their families will still love them even if they sinned sexually.

  • Grace

    Ok. So, she was old enough to make a decision, a Christian, & engaged, & SHE CHOSE to have an abortion.
    Many muslims also decide to make this decision, as well as Buddhists. I know cause I see them.

  • Deena

    Well, if she really LOVED the man, she wouldn’t have had an abortion. She killed a part of herself, and she killed a part of him. Abortion is murder.

    The more publicity the better.
