Houston abortionist Douglas Karpen is being accused of performing illegal late-term abortions similar to the ones that Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted of last week.
Texas pro-life organization Life Dynamics released a video in which three former employees allege Dr. Karpan killed babies who survived late-term abortions.
"When he did an abortion, especially an over 20 week abortion, most of the time the fetus would come completely out before he either cut the spinal cord or he introduced one of the instruments into the soft spot of the fetus in order to kill it ... or actually twisting the head off the neck with his own bare hands," Karpen's former assistant, Deborah Edge, explained.
Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst is comparing the accusations to the Gosnell case.
"I read with disgust about the allegations of Houston-based abortionist Douglas Karpen performing illegal late-term abortions surrounded by appalling sanitary conditions in his clinic," Dewhurst said.
He's calling for a full-scale investigation.
