Friday marks the 43rd anniversary of the watershed Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, and one doctor has committed himself to educating the American public by using the abortion’s tools from a practice he bought out over a dozen years ago.
“Dr. William Lile is a board certified physician in obstetrics and gynecology and the former OB/GYN department chair at Sacred Heart Hospital who has delivered over 3,000 babies. He is also the medical advisor for Priests for Life,” CNS News reports.
The Pensacola doctor purchased an abortion practice in his area 16 years ago and is using the instruments from the facility to demonstrate just how abortions are performed in the first, second and third tri-trimesters.
“He was the largest provider of abortion services for the tri-county area,” Lile told CNSNews.com. “We stopped all abortions on day one, all referrals on day one, and we had him sign a restrictive covenant where he could not practice any medicine in the tri-county area at all for the next 24 months, which pretty much pushed him into retirement and he moved back to Sweden.
“And we saw a dramatic decrease in the number of abortions in those three counties for the next several years until other providers came into the area,” the doctor said.
To illustrate how the procedures are performed to audiences nationwide, Lile brings an abortion machine, which is about the size of dishwasher, and he hooks it up to an empty steel can of paint thinner. The machine sucks with such force that it crushes the can. See video below:
The OB/GYN doctor thought there would be even more of a public outcry, with change coming quickly, presumably including the defunding of Planned Parenthood.
“When there wasn’t a huge response, I realized that this is a spiritual battle. When the lives of a million babies a year are being taken, and 55 million babies’ lives since 1973, and you can see the obvious videos about the sale of those babies’ parts, and there’s not a dominant outcry from the public, that’s when you realize this is a disease of the heart,” Lile said.
The pro-life advocate has put together a 60 minute video called God’s Miracle of Life to show how doctors used ultrasound and even cameras in the womb to diagnose and treat unborn babies as early as 18 weeks.
“A lot of people just do not realize how well developed the baby is on the inside. So we’ll show them videos and ultrasounds of the baby’s heart beating 28 days after conception,” the doctor said.
Lile sees great hope in the youth. “The group I have the most hope in as far as really changing hearts and minds here in the United States are the kids. They are visual learners … They can see the heart beating 28 days after conception. They can see the fingers moving. They no longer believe that it’s just an inanimate blob of tissue.
“So my hope is in this upcoming generation. I really see the pendulum swinging,” he said.
