When I saw what was happening to helpless children, I could NOT ignore it. I could NOT walk away. Abortion was the turning point that moved me from my role as a full-time pastor. I attended law school and became an attorney and have been fighting to stop this genocide, but the raw evil happening right now to these babies continues to shock me.

Below, I’ll share what happened when pro-life advocates in Washington, D.C., reached into a box that held the bodies of babies discarded by an abortion facility in our nation’s capital.

I beg God that our hearts will break for what is happening to these children. I pray that the reality of what is happening around us will drive us to become a part of ending this evil in America.

One pending state bill would make infanticide legal for children up to 6 days old. We need to stop this at the federal level.

We only need a few more legislators from each chamber to pass the Born Alive Act. Send urgent faxes to stand up for these little ones. — Mat

Terrisa Bukovinac is one of the pro-life activists who was present when a box from a D.C. abortion clinic that was intended for a Maryland incinerator was opened to reveal 115 dead babies inside. Below is what she described:

Lauren cut the box open. Inside was a red bag and she cut open the bag. And immediately she knew, and she said out loud “It’s babies, it’s full of babies.”

There were small, round, turquoise plastic containers. We unpacked 110 of them. 110 unborn children. And we found also five much larger containers packed within the box, one of those containers significantly larger than the other four.

And so we opened the largest container first. Lauren [Handy] had triple gloves on — she reached in, and she immediately said, “This one is whole.” And we’re all just watching.

And she puts a fully formed baby onto the table who was, we could tell, much older than our 22-week fetal model, for example.

This baby was clearly over 30 weeks and completely whole, and his skin was pink.

He was just the most beautiful baby boy and we just lost it in that moment. We were just all kind of holding on being strong, trying to get through this. And then this was just completely shattering emotionally. We were weeping, we were cursing the people that did this to him. It was just soul crushing to experience.

We named him Christopher X, and we thought there was definitely a significant chance that he might have been born alive.

Nothing can prepare you for this moment. William Wilberforce is one of our heroes for ending the English slave trade. He said: “You can choose to look away, but you can never again say that you did not know.”

We need your help to get this information into the hands of every single legislator and policymaker who can STOP these unspeakable horrors. We need to make sure that they can never again say they did not know. Send your critical faxes to members of the House and Senate to demand they pass the Born Alive Act.

Lauren Handy is passionate about fighting abortion. She shared what was going through her mind as she pulled these children out of the box.

“I’m telling the babies that I’m sorry, and that I love them and I’m so sorry. That I’m sorry I failed them. And I’m sorry that I couldn't love them enough and sorry that I couldn't save them and I couldn't help their parents. And that I was just so sorry.”

Tragically, what Lauren discovered is not new. In 2000, ABC’s 20/20 with Connie Chung aired a program on abortionists harvesting baby body parts while the babies were alive. Testifying before Congress, one person said: “What changed my mind was watching late-term abortions, seeing their eyes looking at me as I cut through their skull to extract their brain for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s patients, cutting open their chest cavity, only to see a beating heart moving ever so slowly until it stopped. … ”


Send your urgent faxes to members of the House and Senate to pass the Born Alive Act and let them know America is watching.

Terrisa says, “A lot of late-term abortionists, after around 20 weeks, will use a substance called digoxin to cause a heart attack and kill the baby before they do the dismemberment. But Santangelo [the D.C. abortionist] doesn’t use digoxin because it’s expensive and he’s lazy, and it’s just easier for him to deliver the baby whole by dilating and then just leave the baby to die.”

Members of Congress need to be willing to listen to the truth and the voice of the people, especially as we approach a midterm election. Your faxes put these senators and representatives on notice that we care about these children and demand immediate action.

The Ninevites were one of the most wicked groups of people in the Old Testament. But their story shows the depths of God’s mercy. When the Ninevites learned they were going to be judged:

“[They] believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them. Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it” (Jonah 3:5, 10).

There is an average of 2,363 babies killed every day by abortion in the United States. Nearly 300 of them are in the second or third trimester, according to the Guttmacher Institute.

Liberty Counsel Action is committed to fighting this evil. We ask for your prayers and support. Thanks to our Challenge Grant, you can DOUBLE the impact of your gift.

Pray with me. Grieve with me. And then demand justice!
