Mass Murderer Douglas Karpen
By Gary P Jackson
After their media partners could no longer suppress the news of the atrocities that occurred in convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell’s slaughterhouse, the abortion cultists from Planned Parenthood and NARAL worked overtime trying to spin Gosnell as a one time deal, when in fact, we are learning that Gosnell is the norm in this evil baby slaughtering business, not the exception.
Last week I wrote about a vile, evil, despicable man named LeRoy Carhart. Carhart is a celebrated late term abortionist. His particular brand of evil, which allows the dead child to stay in the mother’s womb for days, has caused the deaths of numerous women. When describing this practice to an undercover operative, he said it was like “putting meat in a crock pot.” If you followed the Gosnell murder trial, you know Gosnell made comments just as disgusting about the children he murdered.
I’m going to say something I find myself saying more and more these days:
I am simply unable to distinguish between those who support abortion, and the Nazis who ran the death camps. These murdering abortionists do so with glee, and keep trophies like a serial killer would. They have more in common with Nazi butcher Josef Mengele than actual human beings!
It’s impossible for me to convey just how sickened and outraged I am with mere words.
Now we have another case of an abortionist murdering children AFTER they are born. I am sad to say this vile, sub-human bastard is in Houston.
Douglas Karpen has three abortion mills in Texas. Operation Rescue has been working with informants to expose this evil:
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.
Operation Rescue arranged to have Life Dynamics, Inc. produce a video interview, released yesterday, with three informants who 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.
The three informants, Deborah Edge, Gigi Aguliar, and Krystal Rodriguez, have come forward to 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. A fourth informant has co-operated with Operation Rescue, filing an affidavit about her experiences, but remains at this time anonymous.
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 taken on their cell phones at the Karpen’s clinic on Schumacher Lane in Houston.
The photos were scandalous. They depicted two babies aborted well beyond the legal limit of 24 weeks in Texas. Their necks had been cut.
The photos mentioned are gruesome. Honestly, I threw up looking at the very first one. Man’s inhumanity to man is something one never gets used to. You can follow the link here, if you wish to view the photos, but be forewarned, they will upset you.

“The photos show babies that are huge, with gashes in their necks, indicating that these babies were likely born alive, then killed, just as Kermit Gosnell did at his ‘House of Horrors’ clinic in Philadelphia,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “In fact, there are numerous similarities between Karpen and the Gosnell case, including the disregarding of complaints by the authorities that allowed both men to continue their illegal operations.”
Signs of life
In both cases, the babies’ skin is pink, noting a lack of masceration, an early form of decomposition that happens in babies that die in the womb. Massive bruising on the extremities of one of the babies indicates the baby’s heart was pulsing with life when the trauma was inflicted likely when grasping instruments latched on to bring the baby down into the birth canal. The eyes of the other child are open in a nightmarish expression of pain, revealing development greater than 26-28 weeks. Both sets of photos were taken sometime in 2011.
The video interview of the three informants verified the worst.
“When he did an abortion, especially an over 20 week abortion, most of the time the fetus would come completely out before he cut the spinal cord or he introduced one of the instruments into the soft spot of the fetus, in order to kill the fetus,” said Deborah Edge, who worked as a surgical assistant for Karpen for about 15 years until leaving in March, 2011.
“I thought, well, it’s an abortion you know, that’s what he does, but I wasn’t aware that it was illegal…Most of the time we would see him where the fetus would come completely out and of course, the fetus would still be alive,” Edge continued.
How often did this happen?
“I think every morning I saw several, on several occasions,” she said. “If we had 20-something patients, of course ten, or twelve, or fifteen patients would be large procedures, and out of those large procedures, I’m pretty sure that I was seeing at least three or four fetuses that were completely delivered in some way or another,” said Edge, acknowledging that these babies would be alive.
She described how some babies would emerge too soon and would be alive, moving, and breathing. She also told of how Karpen would sometimes deliver the babies feet first with the toes wiggling until he stabbed them with a surgical implement. At the moment the toes would suddenly splay out before going limp. Sometimes he would kill the babies by “twisting the head off the neck,” according to Edge.
Women would be given doses of Cytotec, a drug that causes strong and unpredictable uterine contractions, and would deliver while they were waiting in line to see Karpen, some in toilets, one in the hallway.
“He just picked it up with one of those [chux] pads and put it in the trash bag,” said Krystal Rodriguez of the baby born in the hallway.
“As long as the patient had the cash, he was going to do it past 25 weeks,” she said.
But not all the babies came out intact. When there was difficulty, Karpen would dismember them, a process that was, according to the surgical assistant Deborah Edge, a bloody mess.
“Sometimes he couldn’t get the fetus out” she explained. “He would yank pieces – piece by piece – when they were oversize. And I’m talking about the whole floor dirty. I’m talking about me drenched in blood.”
Undercover investigation and a troubled past
It all began in early 2011, when Operation Rescue was conducting an undercover investigation of several Texas abortion clinics when it discovered that Karpen appeared to be violating the Texas informed consent law that required that abortionists give the state-mandated information personally on patient conference calls set up for that purpose. In addition to the improper use of a recording, he was not on the line to answer questions, as the law required. Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger filed a complaint with the Texas Medical Board concerning this violation.
Sullenger submitted a statement to the TMB noting Karpen’s documented history of problems, including series of botched abortions stretching back to 1988 when 15-year old Denise Montoya hemorrhaged and died after a 26-week abortion done by Karpen.
She told the TMB of a documented incident on February 6, 2005, when a sewer broke at Karpen’s Texas Ambulatory Surgical Center, located at 2421 N. Shepherd in Houston, causing sewage to spill into the parking lot of a neighboring car dealership. Maribeth Smith, an employee of the car dealership said she is convinced she saw human body parts mixed in with the sewage. She took photographs, believing the human tissue came from the clinic.
“Whether it’s legal or not, it’s not right,” Smith said. “This whole area is nothing but raw sewage and bloody pieces. There were little legs coming out from one side.”
A Health Department worker called 911 to report a second spill at the same abortion clinic. When asked who she was with she told the dispatcher, “Health Department…and we handle normal medical waste, but this is beyond us. He says he can see fetuses and fingers and everything.” (Emphasis in transcript.)
Sullenger hoped that the history of documented abuses would help convince the TMB to act swiftly to protect the public.
Whistleblower comes forward
The following month, Deborah Edge contacted Operation Rescue with her first-hand account Karpen’s practices after she had smuggled one of Operation Rescue’s Whistleblower flyers out of his clinic, knowing that she needed to call.
In addition to the accounts of the illegal late-term abortions, other abuses Edge witnessed included:
*Falsification of ultrasounds to produce younger fetal ages of babies over the legal limit or older fetal ages to extract more money out of women.
*Fraudulent billing practices.
*Surgical equipment not properly sterilized.
*Reuse of disposable instruments.
*Unqualified workers drawing and administering drugs.
*Late-term abortions done at 28 weeks and later. (Texas law permits only to 24 weeks.)
*Lack of adequate nursing staff.
*Concealing poorly kept logs from inspectors to prevent deficiency citations.
*Hiring nurses through a temp agency to work only on days when inspections are scheduled.
*Mistreating heavy women and inappropriately touching attractive women while under sedation.
Edge explained that Karpen was able to evade detection by having his workers hide sanitation logs and other incriminating documentation from inspectors on the occasions they would come by the clinic.
“Karpen might have a little newer equipment and a little cleaner clinic, but his shoddy practices certainly mirror those of convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell. Certainly if anyone deserved Board discipline, it was this guy,” said Sullenger.
There is much, much more to this disturbing report. As we are learning, there is no such thing as a “safe” abortion. Nor, looking at the volume coming through Karpen’s House of Death, is it “rare“.

Here’s an undercover video from the abortion mill. Again, I want to warn readers, this isn’t for the faint of heart.
Liberals have created a culture that tells women they are better off murdering a child, and risking their own death, than being a responsible human being. It’s an evil so great I can’t wrap my mind around it completely. Of all of the horrors man has inflicted on man, this may be the worse.
Roughly 1.2 MILLION babies are slaughtered every single year. This murder on an industrial scale like nothing in history.
Recently it was revealed that one time popular singer Cher, a rabid supporter of abortion, and every other radical leftist cause, was almost aborted herself. Her mother stopped herself at the last moment. There are many stories like this out there. People saved by a last minute dose of humanity.
Though her politics disgust me, I have always been a fan of Cher’s singing. I have to wonder home many Chers have we been denied, simply because their mother killed them?
Most abortions, by a significant amount, are performed on black children. In fact, the only reason abortion was legitimized in the first place was because of racists like Margaret Sanger, a rabid eugenicist in the era of “enlightenment,” who saw abortion as a way to genetically engineer a more perfect human species. Sanger’s stated goal was to wipe out the Negro race.
Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood who is celebrated by democrats to this day as some sort of saint, teamed with the KKK, in order to push this black genocide.[by getting people to accept abortion] Sanger called Negroes “human weeds. She reflected the very essence of the progressive-liberal ideology. Still does.
One wonders how many Martin Luther Kings, Jackie Robinsons, George Washington Carvers, and even Michael Jacksons we have been deprived of, because of the evils created by rabid liberalism.
The ritualistic murder of our innocent children must stop. Abortion isn’t “women’s health or “reproductive health.” You’ll be doing the world a favor if punch everyone in the mouth who utters those words in your presence!
Those who preach rabid liberalism, and abortion, are the most evil society has to offer. Not only do they slaughter millions of innocent children, they put an equal amount of women’s lives in peril. And let’s not forget the chances of developing breast and ovarian cancer increases greatly after an abortion. Many women suffer from depression and even suicidal tendencies. Of course, the murder cult doesn’t share that knowledge willingly with it’s victims.
As human beings, it is our challenge, maybe our greatest challenge, to stop the barbaric practice of abortion forever. We must educate those around us. There are much better, and safer solutions, than murdering innocent children and putting the live of their mothers in peril.
