Mother Gives Birth to Baby Girl at Mississippi’s Last Abortion Facility

JACKSON, Miss. — A woman went into labor and delivered a healthy baby girl at the state’s last abortion facility while waiting ultrasound tests, which are done prior to the scheduling of an abortion.

The pregnant woman, whose name was not released, was at the facility for a “consultation,” according to Shannon Brewer, director of the so-called Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The mother went into labor as she awaited the ultrasound results to see how far along she was in her pregnancy.

The facility is located in Mississippi’s capital city, Jackson, and is the only place in the entire state where surgical abortions are performed. It is owned by Diane Derzis, who claims that she is doing the Lord’s work. “The Bible tells us to love our neighbors with all our strength,” Derzis once told the Austin Chronicle. “Neighbors also mean struggling women who are going through times that are very complicated for them.”

Willie Parker, who also claims to be a Christian, and who is one of the two abortionists on staff, drives at least twice a month to commit killings at the facility. Parker, in his book “A Life’s Work,” stated that his abortion-driven advocacy and killing of unborn children is his “calling,” citing specifically, “[p]reserving access is my calling.”

Facility owner Derzis was featured on ABC’s Nightline in 2013, as she contended to reporters that God was on her side in the abortion business.

“I know as fervently as they do that what I’m doing is moral and right,” she stated. “But if I’m wrong, that’s between the Lord and I.”

The mother and daughter were transported to a local hospital after the birth and are in good health.

    Hopefully, there were girls in the waiting room who heard the cries of this infant, and left that house of horrors; sparing their babies from a gruesome death.

      A live birth is not a known complication of the dilation procedure. If dilation itself is enough for the baby to come out, then the baby is smaller and more premature then any baby in history that survived.

      In addition there doesn’t seem to be reason to believe there was lawfull wrongdoing on the Abortion Clinics Side, such as dilation before ultrasounds.

    Am I reading what this Abortionist said….she was doing the Lord’s work……?
    I have to take a very deep breath!
    Thou shalt NOT kill…..I knew you before you were formed in your mother’s womb…
    Do I need to say more! How people take little quotations from GOD’S word and try and fit it to their own way of thinking…, so sad

    I pray to GOD that these people will have their eyes opened, and ask GOD to forgive them of their sins, and become a child of GOD. What else can I say?

    When we know from Scripture that the Holy Spirit filled John the Baptist “even from his mother’s womb” (Luke 1:15), why does any supposed Christian dare say that abortion is the Lord’s work? Yes, this is between the Lord and her, and she should be trembling.

    • ♥LadyInChrist♥InGodITrust♥

      I agree, she should be trembling, and one day she will be as she falls at the feet of Christ. On that day she will see the truth that she is guilty of murdering the unborn. What a sad day that will be.

    Thank God, they did not kill that baby.

    That comment is only true if her ‘lord’ is satan, and he gave them their ‘calling’. NO, the Lord is NOT on her side! Love your neighbor does not mean kill an unborn baby! It means love both mother and child and that includes life, not murder. It is not ‘right’ and ‘moral,’ it is wrong and immoral and a sin of the worst kind, sacrificing innocent unborn babies to the devil! Heinous and evil! Shame on them for claiming the Lord’s name! If they are not satanists in disguise, they are deceived by satan 100%! They will find out they are wrong, and if they don’t repent it will be too late when they find out in hell. That’s what they put that baby through, they deserve nothing less.

  • No one….I repeat NO ONE who murders babies is doing the work of God!!!

    They are doing the work of their god Satan.

          It calls for the murdering of infants in a certain context, while you just claimed no one who murders infants is doing the work of god.

            Irony it is more than just a metal.

          • It is God passing a righteous judgement against a people full of sin just as He did before this with the worldwide flood of Noah’s time.

    I do hope that people are willing to support her and her child with social and financial support as well as thoughts and prayers…

      Then YOU do it. Telling other people to show compassion while you don’t is very hypocritical.

    I’d like to make clear, that despite disagreeing with practically everything published here, I’d considder myself Pro Life. That does still lead me to make a few critiques on the article.

    – The Article repeatedly pushes on false faith, different branches of christianity and different people have different beliefs, though I understand that this news site makes news from a certain viewpoint, they did go to the extend here that is rather disrespectfull towards others, especially by putting part of a quote from one of the employees of this clinics partially in brackets to further push their own narrative? That’s not reporting, that’s falsifying peoples quotes to push a certain message, which I find at the very least disturbing.
    – No matter how much you hate it, the definition killing does not fit with abortions, I am pro-life, but that’s no reason to misdefine an abortion to killing, which is a plain false equivecation.

    It’s fine, to have an opinion, to voice it and to critique heavily based on it, like this article does. But when you start ignoring word definitions and falsifying peoples quotes, that’s just feels very wrong.

    Further I’d like to note I am happy to hear both the mother and child are doing well :), I wish them a lot of luck in their lives. It can’t be easy to have a child in that situation. Though I disagree with abortions (Except if there is medical need), I do recognise that usually there is good reason for women to decide an abortion is their only option, making it very important that she get’s the support she and her child need to be able to raise her child healthily and for both to lead a happy life.

  • According to their website, they do NOT just perform abortions, but “offer family planning services to help meet the unique health care needs of women. These services include: pregnancy testing, contraception counseling, and abortion services.”

    Interesting that Mississippi works to close down all hope for the healthcare of poor women as a means to eliminate abortion, but those women who can afford it simply go somewhere else. Thus, the real harm is to the poor. That’s often the result of fundamentalist endeavors to control the sexual and reproduction lives of women.
