SHOCK: Houston Grand Jury Won’t Indict Abortionist for Twisting Heads off Babies

Houston, TX – A Houston grand jury has refused to indict late-term abortionist Douglas Karpen after a months-long investigation into allegations of illegal late-term abortions and the killing of babies born alive at his two abortion clinics.

“The refusal to indict Karpen is a gross miscarriage of justice. The grand jury has essentially freed Karpen to continue to violate Texas laws and take the lives of late-term babies that the law was meant to protect,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It’s upsetting to know that the kind of brutality shown in the photos taken at his clinic will be allowed continue.”

Operation Rescue alleged that Karpen was murdering babies in in a similar way as convicted Pennsylvania abortion Kermit Gosnell, who was found guilty of 3 counts of First Degree murder for intentionally killing babies born alive during late-term abortions.

The allegations against Karpen were based on information acquired from four former Karpen employees and on photographs of dead late-term babies taken by some of the workers on their cell phones. The grisly photos showed very large aborted babies that were nearly decapitated.

The informants also told Operation Rescue that Karpen routinely did abortions beyond the legal limit of 24 weeks, which seemed to be supported by the photographs.

“It’s simply unbelievable that a grand jury would not find that Karpen broke the law, just based on the photographic evidence alone,” said Newman. “There’s no way any reasonable person could look at the images of those abortion victims and say that nothing was done wrong. The babies’ throats were cut from ear to ear. That isn’t something that can be done inside the womb.”

Newman continued, “We are not giving up on the Karpen matter. We will continue to seek ways through the legal system to bring him to justice. This isn’t the last anyone will hear of this.”

    we cant allow this terrible act of inhumane to continue . what will it take before people decide its not normal to allow people to kill our own ?

    Pure dark murder

  • jean Bouthiller

    I am discussed. These murderers have gone to far. I have always held that abortion is murder but this is so clear . People need to see this and stop the murder.

  • Treva Holmlund

    Ohhhhhhh what kind of people are on the grand jury…. they must belong to Satan himself ….. how can they sleep at night …. I don’t understand!! Karpen you are pure evil …. I know in my heart you will suffer for this!!

  • Heather M

    This photo of this child is horrendous. How does a man, I won’t call him a doctor because they promise to protect life, get away with breaking the law of the land? Bad enough with them doing abortions in the womb but to break the law that says ‘not outside the womb’ and in such a horrendous way. If these photos were seen in the newspapers I wonder if abortion would be so popular. An evil and perverse age allows such suffering against an innocent, vulnerable child. Shocked! Those who allow this have blood on their hands and such innocent beautiful blood. The Govts must act against this. We thought that Hitler was evil. People THIS IS EVIL.

    This is another example of “tolerance”- a refusal to recognize evil and properly oppose it.
    Troy is right the photos alone are legally sufficient to secure an indictment against Karpen.
    It’s sad to view such photos just before Christmas,but they need to be displayed.
    There’s too much fog on the highway in America.
    Merry Christmas America. See the babies torn to shreds.
    Lord help us for we surely can’t help ourselves.

    they spend on watching all that stuff Satin is doing. They could be trying to do something to stop what’s happening to our healthy way of life. This was not how Jesus told us of the way our Father GOD wanted us to live. In God we trust, and yet he gets all the blame!!! Why Father, I didn’t do this or that!! It’s his or her fault, drugs, drinking, sexual sick acts done. It don’t matter what age or sex. It sure has become very, very EVIL WORLD WE LIVE IN!!! People are even afeard to admit to others that they Pray, GOD says you don’t believe in my son Jesus and you dyne him. I will dyne you!!!! I’m not afraid to say, I
    ‘ don’t believe in HELL!! Take a real good look at this life in todays time, now look at the years a head. WARS, EARTH QUACKS, HUNGER, GREED, LUST it will be 100 times worse then it is now. PLEASE GOD!!! FORGIVE US FOR WHAT WE’VE DONE TO THE BEAUITFUL WORLD YOU GAVE US TO TAKE CARE OF, AND ALL YOUR CHILDEOMREN WHO HAVE SUFFERED.WE MAY HAVE BEEN BORN INTO SIN, PLEASE HAVE MERCY ON US AND SHOW US EVERYDAY TO DO YOUR WILL. SO WE MAY GO TO A MUCH BETTER PLACE, AS YOU PROMISED ADAM AND EVE. NO MORE SUFFERING OR PAIN. THERE, WE WILL DWELL WITH JESUS- AMEN!!!! THIS COMES FROM MY HEART THAT WE MAY HAVE LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER.

    Postcards should be made of that picture and mailed to a lot of TX government officials. E-cards too.

  • stephanie f

  • Lanell Boldt

    I am livid about the accusations which were so legitimate against Douglas Karpen. They had several pictures as evidence. There are 4 witnesses. What was wrong with this Grand Jury? Paid off ??? This is the most horrific killing I have ever seen. The Grand Jury made a gross negligence mistake in this case…They’d probably be more concerned if the victims were animals. As far as I am concerned, I am embarrassed to live in this country full of Pro Choice mothers who would be able to stomach watching their baby’s neck slit from ear to ear….This is a horrific pitiful pathetic shame. May he rot in hell.

  • Darillyn Patterson

    There’s no way that if I was on that federal grand jury I would exonerate that abortionist. Have mercy, Lord, on all their souls.

    I saw that picture and for a few seconds all I saw was a chicken. I think pro – choice did a good job des-humanizating them and they did a good job with me. Not matter what… inside or outside… deserve to live. Late term abortion is murder.
    (It was just few seconds, then I entered reason)
