Another report comes in from Odessa, Texas. An abortion worker was allegedly seen depositing large brown plastic bags into the city dumpster prior to closing. A Baptist minister who opened the bags found
“perfectly formed hands and feet of a 13-week old baby, and the complete body, in pieces, of a 17-week old baby. Everything except one foot was there: the rib cage, sexual organs, head, fingernails and toenails.”
Quoted in Olga Fairfax “101 Uses of a Dead (or Alive) Baby” ALL About Issues, Jan 1984. p 6-7
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.” A May 1993 inspection found that fetuses less than 18 to 24 weeks were flushed down the garbage disposal.

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 reportedly fined $43,000 after admitting 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.
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.

Dr. 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)
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.
Former clinic worker Kathy Sparks discusses what was done to aborted babies at the clinic where she worked
“At the time I worked there, they only did first trimester abortions; they didn’t have the facilities to do second trimester abortions. But oftentimes, second trimester abortions were performed and these babies we would not put in the little jar with the label to send off to the pathology lab. We would put them down a flushing toilet. They had a toilet that was mounted to the wall, and it was a continually flushing toilet; it didn’t have a lid or a handle. That’s where we would put those babies. They knew they couldn’t turn them in or they were going to be found out that they were doing abortions which were too late term…The ones that were small enough, which would be 12-13 weeks or less, we would put in a jar, label them, and put them in a big box to go off to the pathology lab.”
