Fetus Woes? Call Roto Rooter!

Dateline 10/2/00

Operation Rescue West's Troy Newman reports an unusual incident that took place recently outside an abortion clinic they regularly picket.

A plumber strode past the protestors with his tools and entered the facility. Later, during closing prayers, the prolifers noticed the white-faced plumber leaving the building. He told the prolifers that he'd been called to fix a stopped-up industrial-strength garbage disposal.

As he disassembled the pipes he discovered that the drain was clogged with human flish -- bone, sinew, and tiny, discernable hands and feet. He was so shocked and repulsed that he nearly called the police, but was scolded and directed back to his work by staff.

Prolifers believe the story; abortion advocates claim that it's fantasy -- that such things simply never happen. Do they?

If this plumber found what Newman says he found, he wouldn't be the first plumber to have found a gruesome surprise associated with abortion practice. A famous pre-legalization case involved a Roto-Rooter man called to unstop the plumbing at Dr. Harvey Lothringer's home and practice in New York. The man from Roto Rooter found the ground-up remains of Barbara Lofrumento and her fetus.

But, of course, that was in the bad old days before legalization made abortion safe and tidy, right?

Well, Roe might have changed how doctors disposed of dead patients' bodies, but it didn't eliminate the need for garbage disposals in abortion practice:

    Two ex-employees of abortionist Jesse Floyd told news reporter they quit after being asked to flush aborted fetuses with recognizable limbs down garbage disposal at his The Ladies Clinic.

    An employee of William Malcom Knarr reported that she found a four-inch fetus in the garbage disposal at his clinic. (Source: Affidavit of S.M. dated 10-22-92)

    Sidney Knight got in trouble when the Department of Public Works reported that fetuses were disposed of by grinding them and flushing them into the sanitary sewer system. (Source: - DPW letter 12-29-89)

    Abortionist Curtis Stover filed an affidavit stating that he vomited after observing abortionist James Park's method of disposing of aborted fetuses of 15 to 22 weeks gestation: he ground them up with a standard kitchen meat grinder and flushed the tissue down the sink. In a letter to the health department, Stover stated that Parks told him he had developed this method because the fetuses would "stop up" the toilet and because he did not want fetuses retrieved from the trash by pro-lifers. (Sources: letter by Stover dated 6-15-92, affidavit by Stover dated 6-15-92; Up The Creek 9-11-92; excerpt from Parks' deposition 2-4-91 Arapahoe County District Court Case No. 90CV432)

    A Delaware plumber reportedly told investigators that he installed an "industrial gauge" garbage disposal at Brandywine Valley Women's Center. Employees told investigators that they routinely flushed 8 - 20 week fetuses down the disposal. Director Eric Harrah was reportely fined $43,000 after amitting that he allowed fetuses to be flushed down the garbage disposal at Brandywine and its affiliated Delta Women's Clinic, a National Abortion Federation member facility. (Sources: Wilmington News Journal 12-3-94, 12-4-93, 12-15-93, 8-22-93, 4-16-94, Philadelphia Inquirer 7-11-93)

    Abortionist Lawson Akpulonu got in trouble after, among other things, the Medical Board found: "Employees were trained to dump tissue jars into the sink and run the contents through the garbage disposal." (Source: Medical Board Accusation No. D-5286 OAH. No. L-63123)

What Op-R says the plumber saw certainly doesn't deviate from what has already been documented in other facilities across the country.
