UDATE: Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst Demands Investigation of Houston Abortionist
AUSTIN—Today, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst issued the following statement:
“In a week when serial murderer Kermit Gosnell was found guilty of killing babies, I read with disgust about the allegations of Houston-based abortionist Douglas Karpen performing illegal late-term abortions surrounded by appalling sanitary conditions in his clinic. The Harris County authorities should perform a full-scale investigation and take action against those who broke state law.” — Lt. Governor David Dewhurst

Here is the story from our friends at Operation Rescue – May 15, 2013
Houston, TX – After the conviction of late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell on murder charges, Operation Rescue has been repeatedly asked if there is any evidence that similar practices exist at abortion clinics elsewhere in the nation.
That documentation has now been released by Operation Rescue in a shocking new report that describes in detail the allegations of Gosnell-like practices that are still happening today at an abortion clinic in Houston, Texas owned and operated by late-term abortionist Douglas Karpen and the two-year effort to bring him to justice that has been ignored by the Texas Medical Board.
Allegations supported with photographic evidence include gruesome details of viable, late-term babies being aborted alive then intentionally killed by having their throats slashed, brains stabbed, and heads twisted off.
“This project will debunk any notion that Gosnell was an outlier in the abortion industry,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “It is as heart-wrenching and tragic as the Gosnell case, and demands a similar response. This time, we are giving the public an opportunity to help in bringing this Texas abortionist to justice.”
The three former abortion clinic workers, Deborah Edge, Gigi Aguliar, and Krystal Rodriguez, came to Operation Rescue as the result of our Abortion Whistleblowers Program, which offers a reward of $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of abortionists who are breaking the law. These brave women tell of their horrific experiences working for abortionist Douglas Karpen, at one of three of his Texas abortion clinics, the Aaron Women’s Clinic in Houston.
Operation Rescue arranged to have Life Dynamics, Inc. produce a video interview of these women, which was released yesterday. Additional video and other evidence has been produced by Operation Rescue and is including in the Special Report.
As shocking as their stories are, these women did more than just talk; they brought forward evidence of illegal late-term abortions in the form of photos and video taken on their cell phones at the Karpen’s clinic on Schumacher Lane in Houston.
Watch video evidence of apparent health violations, listen to the women describe their nightmarish experiences, and view the most shocking evidence of all, the photos that prove an criminal investigation into murder and illegal late-term abortions is not only warranted, but necessary, to protect viable babies from an merciless and painful death not much different from what earned Gosnell two life sentences in prison.
