MADRID, November 13, 2008 (CNA) – The Spanish daily “La Razon” has published an article on the pro-life conversion of a former “champion of abortion.” Stojan Adasevic, who performed 48,000 abortions, sometimes up to 35 per day, is now the most important pro-life leader in Serbia, after spending 26 years as the most renowned abortion doctor in the country.
“The medical textbooks of the Communist regime said abortion was simply the removal of a blob of tissue,” the newspaper reported. “Ultrasounds allowing the fetus to be seen did not arrive until the 80s, but they did not change his opinion. Nevertheless, he began to have nightmares.”
“That same day a cousin came to the hospital with his four months-pregnant girlfriend, who wanted to get her ninth abortion – something quite frequent in the countries of the Soviet bloc. The doctor agreed. Instead of removing the fetus piece by piece, he decided to chop it up and remove it as a mass. However, the baby’s heart came out still beating. Adasevic realized then that he had killed a human being,”
After this experience, Adasevic “told the hospital he would no longer perform abortions. Never before had a doctor in Communist Yugoslavia refused to do so. They cut his salary in half, fired his daughter from her job, and did not allow his son to enter the university.”
WICHITA, KS, November 13, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Two pro-life volunteers participating in a round the clock prayer vigil were sickened last week, after being exposed to fumes from an oily substance that had been spilled across the driveway at George Tiller’s late-term abortion clinic. Operation Rescue, citing a similar incident that occurred in 2007, alleges that the spilling of the substance in such close proximity to where pro-life volunteers were participating in the 40 Days for Life campaign was an intentional “chemical attack.” One of the pro-lifers, Jennifer McCoy, was treated for four hours at a local hospital emergency room suffering from vomiting, diarrhea, and swelling of the face and eyes. Another woman, Brandi Lozier, was with McCoy praying outside the abortion clinic in the early morning hours of Sunday, November 2, 2008, as part of the 40 Days For Life event. She suffered similar symptoms, but was not hospitalized. After conducting tests, doctors told McCoy that her symptoms were the result of exposure to a foreign substance, and were not related to any viral or bacterial infection. Hazmat was called to the abortion clinic and treated the area to remove the unknown substance. After being released from the hospital, McCoy filed a complaint with the Wichita Police Department. “We suspect that this chemical attack may have been in retribution for Jennifer’s help in documenting a botched abortion at Tiller’s clinic a few weeks ago,” said Operation Rescue spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger. McCoy had interviewed Patient S. from her hospital bed after she nearly died from a botched abortion at Women’s Health Care Services. A similar incident occurred in September, 2007, when Tiller’s security guard, John Rayburn, was photographed with a “stink bomb” that also sickened those on the scene. Prosecutors refused to file charges, and efforts to hold Tiller accountable in small claims court failed. “We know whoever is responsible for endangering the health of these innocent women will only continue to be emboldened by a lack of prosecution,” said Sullenger. “The only way to stop these cowardly attacks on pro-lifers is to catch the perpetrators and put them in jail.”
It’s pretty typical these days that pro-aborts and their sympathizers must resort to force and intimidation to get their way. On the one hand, the pro-life movement is gaining in strength and the demand for abortion is going to start to drop off as the light of day is shone on the grissly business of this massive human genocide. On the other hand, the abortion suppliers are dwindling in numbers so the government thugs and their allies on the ground have to ensure the abortion providers keep providing.
If things begin to heat up on this battle front, know that we are winning and we are going to win. For the last 40 years, it’s been smooth sailing for the abortion industry. From here on in, it’s going to be stormy weather.
