Are Texas Democrats Helping Abortionist Who Kills Babies Born Alive?

Texas Democrats are filibustering a bill today at the state legislature that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and hold abortion facilities accountable for meeting basic health and safety standards.

Texas is the state where late-term abortion practitioner Douglas Karpen runs three abortion clinics where former employees have exposed his practices — similar to Kermit Gosnell — which see him killing babies who are born alive in an abortion process that is more like infanticide.

Today, Life Dynamics, a pro-life group that initially released video footage of the former Karpen employees, is accusing the Texas Democrats of keeping his abortion business and his practice of killing babies after they are born alive going.

“Today, radically pro-abortion Texas State Senator Wendy Davis has announced that she will filibuster in the Texas legislature to try and keep several abortion restrictions from moving forward in the state,” the pro-life group said in a statement today. “While Davis does her pro-death dance today, state and national media will likely cover the filibuster while ignoring accusations that after birth abortions are being performed in the state.”

Since the video was released, Texas District 61, State Representative Phil King along with several other state lawmakers have called for a full investigation of the late term abortion doctor.

“In addition, Rep. King has mailed a copy of the testimony to the Homicide Division of the Houston Police Department.  According to Harris County DA’s Office spokeswoman Sara Marie Kinney, the Harris County District Attorney’s Office is cooperating with an investigation by the Houston Police Department,” the pro-life organization tells LifeNews.

Mark Crutcher, President of Life Dynamics said, “They’ve seen these things go on; they’ve participated in them. He’s delivering them live and killing them outside the womb…He sometimes twists their heads off – he would just grab them by the shoulders and by the head and twist their necks, ring their necks like a chicken, literally.”

In the video, a former Karpen employee says:



“I thought, well, it’s an abortion you know, that’s what he does, but I wasn’t aware that it was illegal…Most of the time we would see him where the fetus would come completely out and of course, the fetus would still be alive..”

“He does a lot of huge abortions. A lot of the times, we would bring the big fetus that were over age, we would re-open the bag and just look at it and be like, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s so big!'”

“Sometimes he couldn’t get the fetus out. He would yank pieces – piece by piece – when they were oversize. And I’m talking about the whole floor dirty. I’m talking about me drenched in blood.”

While Wendy Davis, along with abortion giant Planned Parenthood claim the whole world is watching Texas, Life Dynamics asks when will the media do their job and report these Gosnell style accusations to the nation?
