Shop of Horrors: Abortion Death Prompts Raid, Grisly Discovery

Illegal late-term abortions suspected after authorities find dozens of frozen bodies dating back 30 years

Philadelphia, PA – Authorities investigating an abortion death raided a West Philadelphia abortion clinic for the second time in two days and made a grisly discovery. Dozens of apparently late-term fetuses were found frozen, some dating back 30 years.

Investigators are now examining the remains to determine if illegal late-term abortions were done.

Police and Federal authorities raided the abortion clinic run by Kermit Gosnell after an abortion patient died last November. Massive amounts of drugs found in the victim’s system led authorities to suspect that Gosnell was illegally prescribing pain-killers. There were indications that the victim had been treated by unlicensed personnel.

Gosnell’s medical license has been suspended. The suspension order described “deplorable and unsanitary” conditions at the clinic, indicating that “there was blood on the floor, and parts of aborted fetuses were displayed in jars.”

NEW! Read Emergency Suspension Documents

The order declared Gosnell to be “an immediate and clear danger to the public health and safety.”

The clinic is temporarily closed. No charges have yet been filed.

“Here is yet another filthy abortion mill with another unlicensed abortion worker causing another abortion death in another shop of horrors. This is not the exception to the rule in our nation’s abortion clinics. It is standard operating procedure,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “This clinic is no better than a back alley abortion mill, and in fact may be worse. Collecting the remains of dead babies over a 30 year time frame is reminiscent of the actions of deranged serial killers who keep body parts as trophies. It doesn’t get much sicker than that.”

This news comes on the heels of news of another abortion death in New York last month. Operation Rescue filed a complaint in that case and a formal investigation has begun.

    Totally apart from abortion damage itself, it is amazing that people who _claim_ they are for women’s _rights_ and health absolutely insist that these places be exempt from the same standards and inspections as other outpatient surgical facilities. Perhaps word is leaking out and we are beginning to chip away at that horrendous state of affairs. Please, God help us know the way to put all this to an end!

  • The abortion clinic had “deplorable and unsanitary conditions,”blood on the floor, and parts of aborted fetuses were displayed in jars.”

    This makes me sick. Legal abortion was sold to us as a protection for women. It was supposed to protect women from “back alley butchers.” Now here we are 37 years later, and the back alley butchers are operating legally out of their offices on Main Street. But for some of them the conditions they offer patients have NOT improved.

    Maybe we ought to just make abortion illegal and give women some REAL protection.

    I believe in Choice, the choice to have unprotected sex or not. Murder of innocent babies, not fetuses. Unprotected sex would decline if the mother actually had to have the children. 9 months isn’t that long to learn a lesson and at the same time, give the baby up to a family that truly wanted children. Enough is Enough, Abortion is not a birth control.

    Is there really any hope for these abortionists and the ones that support them? Everytime a new article is on here it seems they get worse and worse! Now how about the abortionist display his “treasured collection” at the front desk so that every woman and man that goes in there can see what their baby is gonna look like….. I mean aren’t these so called doctors proud of their job??? I’m curious of what this doctor will say when the Day of Judgement happens and God shows him his collection of dead babies stuffed in a freezer. Sick!

    This does not surprise me. Abortionists have no regard for life, their job is about ending life. Why would proper disposal be an issue for them? After hearing this story, my main thought is: How many women who had abortions at this clinic over the past 30 years heard the story? How many stopped dead in their tracks wondering if their baby might be among those frozen or on display? I pray the mothers have repented since making their deadly choice, and the babies finally get a decent burial.

    This makes me sick to my stomach. I have always been a very strong pro-life supporter; however, now that my husband and I are expecting our first child, my opinion has become even stronger. Hearing our little one’s heartbeat at just 8 weeks…I just don’t understand how anyone could continously murder innocent lives for their “profession.” This complete disregaurd for life, laws and regulations is disgusting. I pray that some how, the Lord will break through their hearts of stone.

  • Please pray for my efforts to produce a pro life movie to end abortion. Sincerely in Christ, Kenny Merriken
