DC Abortionist Appears to Be Committing Infanticide

Members of Congress demand autopsies for babies at Santangelo's clinic amid allegations of illegal abortions and potential infanticide.

The shocking revelations surrounding abortionist Cesare Santangelo’s Washington Surgi-Clinic have ignited a firestorm of controversy and highlighted a disturbing breach of both moral and legal boundaries. Members of Congress have urgently demanded that the D.C. medical examiner preserve the bodies of five unborn babies, suspected victims of either partial-birth abortions or outright infanticide, a grave accusation that implicates federal crimes. Yet, in a move that reeks of complicity, the Justice Department has shockingly recommended the destruction of these bodies without conducting necessary autopsies.

The Biden administration’s apparent collusion with the D.C. government to obscure evidence of potentially illegal abortion practices at Santangelo’s clinic is not only morally reprehensible but also a gross violation of public trust. This scandal unveils a horrifying reality that some unborn babies, capable of life outside the womb, may have been subjected to brutal and unlawful procedures under the guise of legal abortion services.

The story of one mother, contemplating an abortion at Santangelo’s clinic, brings this issue to a deeply personal level. Faced with homelessness and abuse, she considered abortion as her last resort, unknowingly stepping into a nightmare scenario. This mother underwent a perilous procedure that revealed Santangelo’s alarming approach to abortion. The process involved the insertion of an excessive number of laminaria sticks, leading to significant harm to the mother’s body. Notably, Santangelo deviated from the usual method by not administering digoxin, a drug typically used to ensure fetal demise before delivery. This omission suggests a chilling intent to perform the act of killing the child post-birth, a procedure that starkly crosses into the realm of infanticide. The mother’s last-minute decision to seek help at a hospital saved her child’s life, exposing the grim reality of Santangelo’s practices and highlighting the urgent need for accountability and justice in the face of such egregious actions. The child is now four years old.

The case of the “D.C. Five” and the miraculous survival of one little boy are stark reminders of the value of every human life. They call into question the practices of abortion clinics that operate under the radar, shielded by political agendas and a lack of transparency. Cesare Santangelo’s actions, and the government’s reluctance to investigate, highlight a systemic failure to protect the most vulnerable.

As a society, we must demand justice for the unborn victims of Santangelo’s clinic and ensure that such atrocities are never repeated. The refusal to conduct autopsies on the “D.C. Five” is a denial of justice and a failure to uphold the principles of human decency. It is imperative that we hold those responsible accountable and advocate for the rights of the unborn, ensuring that every child is given the chance to live.
