Abortion Activist Deletes Photo of “Abortion Christmas Tree” With Forceps on Top After Complaints

An abortion activist who tweeted the photo of a Christmas tree decorated with abortion tools apparently deleted the post after it caused massive outrage.

CBN News reports the We are Pro-Abortion Twitter account shared the photo last week. It came from another account under the name Michael Anthony, who appears to be associated with the We Are Pro-Abortion group as well as late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart, who has facilities in Nebraska and Maryland.

The photo shows sopher clamps on top of the tree in substitute for the traditional star. A sopher clamp is a “grasping instrument with rows of sharp ‘teeth’” that typically is used to abort unborn babies between 12 and 24 weeks of pregnancy, according to former abortion provider Dr. Anthony Levatino. He told Live Action that the sopher clamp is used “to grasp and pull the baby’s arms and legs, tearing the limbs from the child’s body” in a dismemberment abortion, or D&E.

“It is literally impossible to top our topper,” Anthony wrote, including the hashtags #proabortion #abortions and #Christmas.

Students for Life of America and other pro-lifers expressed outrage at the abortion Christmas tree, and later called out the We are Pro-Abortion group for sharing it.

“You deleted your tweet of abortion instruments on top of your tree. You also made the account private. Did you realize how gruesome your tweet was? How disrespectful it was? That abortion kills innocent human beings? All of the above? @werproabortion,” Students for Life wrote in response.

Anthony also made his account private so no one can see what he posts.

It is not the first time abortion activists have sought thrills by mocking Christmas, a holiday celebrating the birth of an unplanned child to a young unwed mother. In 2010, a pro-abortion group sold “Abornaments,” a desecration of plastic fetal models depicting unborn children at various stage of development before birth, online. Some of the ornaments were plastic fetal models decorated with red noses and reindeer antlers hanging from coat-hangers.

Readers sometimes question why LifeNews.com draws attention to such horrors, especially when abortion activists seem to get a thrill from the attention they receive for such horrors. The reason is because it opens people’s eyes to the truth about what really goes on inside the abortion industry.
