Pro-Life Activist Confronts the Reality of Abortion

In a book on pro-life activism, an author relates the following story:

A pro-life activist identified only as “Dylan” recounted how he found pieces of aborted babies in the trash outside the clinic. He said he:

“wasn’t even thinking about it [finding aborted babies] but one day, when I went there [to the clinic], there were these trash bags sitting right there outside their door. I took a deep breath and threw them in the trunk of my car, and went over to Elaine’s [another pro-lifers] house.”

According to the author:

“Together they carefully opened the gauze bags and probed the contents. They took the identifiable fetal parts to a pathologist at a nearby Children’s Hospital who photographed the remains. Dylan remembers that, “In pictures it was just incredible. You could see all the bones and the bone structure.” The pathologist “identified it as a 9 1/2 week-old unborn child.”…

From Dylan:

“I was shocked, even though I knew up here [intellectually], seeing it knowing that was a baby who was alive that day, when I was at the mill, who had died that day at the mill was just devastating. And yet it was like, don’t anybody ever try and tell me, if they ever tried before, don’t ever try to tell me that’s not a baby.”
