While abortion proponents insist abortion is safe and legal, a
pro-life organization has demonstrated otherwise.
Dynamics has released a brochure and video showing pictures of
an 18-year-old pregnant Pennsylvania woman, Marla Cardamone, prior
to an abortion, then photos of her on the stainless steel autopsy
table several hours later.
Mark Crutcher tells OneNewsNow he released the
graphic material with the family's permission. The brochure details
that a medical counselor warned Cardamone that the prescription
medication she had been taking would cause her baby to be born with
severe birth defects. The counselor went on to pressure her into
having an abortion. "At that point," the brochure says, "an
abortionist was brought in to kill her baby. And while he was at
it, he also killed Marla."
"A lot of people have seen the graphic images of what abortion
does to the unborn child, but they haven't seen the pictures of
what abortion can do to the mom," Crutcher explains. "And this is a
culture today -- I think because of television and now the Internet
-- that is completely dominated by the visual images that it sees.
Everything is influenced by that."
Life Dynamics has also set up a new website, SafeAndLegal.com, which lists the names of
girls and women who have died from abortions -- information the
pro-lifer maintains the abortion industry has skillfully covered
"I can show you death certificates where we can document that
this woman died in an abortion, or this young lady died in an
abortion, yet her death certificate doesn't mention the word
abortion and she's not counted in the abortion statistics," the
pro-lifer laments. "And we have found these by the hundreds."
Crutcher insists that Americans need to be educated, even if it
takes graphic material to accomplish that, so they can know what
actually happens in America's abortion clinics.
Following Marla Cardamone's death, it was determined that her
baby had no abnormalities. In an interview with Deborah Cardamone, Marla's
mother told Crutcher that she hopes making the pictures of her
daughter "so brutally butchered" public will make the lies stop and
help people understand what abortions do to women.
