A YouTube video clip has gone viral on social media this week. It shows an abortionist confronting a Christian pro-life activist in front of an abortion clinic. Dr. Robert J. Santella at Family Planning Associates in San Diego, CA is shown ignoring the security guard who warns him to ignore the protester; holding a cup of coffee, he approaches the protester and whispers in his ear, apparently not knowing the pro-lifer is recording his comments. When the activist tells the doctor he must "repent from murdering babies," the doctor hisses and speaks in a raspy, demonic sounding voice. Things like, "Why, stinky breath?" and hissing can be heard, as well as, "I love it" (killing babies); "I never go to Christ;" "I have a darkened heart" (when told his heart is darkened); "I don’t listen to Christ;" "I do have a darkened heart;" "Every day" (when told he will stand in judgement one day).
He then utters more of the same before the security guard tells him he has been summoned back into the clinic. His composure then completely changes, as he switches back into doctor mode and calmly walks back inside.
This encounter has stirred the pro-life community, and understandably so. I for one have always thought a person would have to be possessed with evil to carry out the heinous practice of killing babies over an extended period of time. In this case, I have seen some suggest that Santella was merely acting. Others, however, believe it was a genuine manifestation of demonic possession -- what I call having the lights on but somebody else home."
The doctor's facial expression changes, and his body contorts when he confronts the pro-lifer, so my response to those who think he's acting is even if he is, the exchange still shows the callousness and death of conscience one must have to pretend to be demon possessed and mock a Christian before calmly going back into what Dr. Ben Carson calls a "baby chop shop" to practice this heinous trade.
I also find it compelling that the security guard on scene is African-American. I wonder if she really understands what takes place in the building she's guarding. Does she know that abortion is decimating America's black population to the point where we are in depopulation, even in urban centers across America where we had strong growth going all the way back to Jim Crow and the black migration from the South to the North?
According to Rev. Walter B. Hoye, a subject matter expert on abortion and founder and president of the Issues4Life Foundation, abortion has nearly cut America's black population in half.
"Our best estimates, based on a projection of the most recent data through the current period, is that the current cumulative number of abortions from 1967 through June of this year is 59.4 million, of which an estimated 20,350,000 are black American abortions," Rev Hoye says.
"Considering that the total current black American population is about 42,000,000, the 20,350,000 black American abortions are equal to 48.45 percent of the total black American population. If not for abortion, the total black American population would be approximately 62,350,000, or 48 percent greater than it is today," he explains.
Back to Dr. Robert J. Santella in San Diego -- one of my followers on social media has blamed the security guard for protecting the doctor, whom he called a "baby killer." My response was that the guard probably doesn't have a clue what they actually do in that clinic; it's just a job, a mere paycheck to her. I do, however, blame the leadership in the black church community. It is their job to be watchmen on the wall for their congregations. Blacks are churchgoers. This security guard may be a member of a local church there in the community. But many black churches side-step the abortion issue because they think it's a political issue, a partisanship political football. It isn't, though.
The bottom line is one political party wholeheartedly supports abortion, while the other only has a few who sometimes walk the fence on the government-funded and sanctioned evil practice.
If I could speak to the guard, I would tell her exactly what happens in the clinic she's guarding and that I am praying that the Lord moves her to another post where she can ply her profession with integrity, for no one wants to earn a check protecting a "baby chop shop" and have blood on their hands as well.
As for Santella, Operation Rescue is reporting that he is no longer affiliate with Sharp's Grossmont Hospital (he is wearing a Sharp Healthcare identification badge in the video). On May 20, the California Medical Board had also filed disciplinary action against him, accusing him of negligence and unprofessional conduct that "demonstrates an unfitness to practice medicine."
