This is a sickening stroy. For all who participated in this horror show may God damn your souls to the lowest, blackest, hottest, and sulfur filled HELL. You are no gods who wanted to be God and decide who is worthy to live. Hitler still reigns in NC.

There was a butcher in Durham back in the 1960's. His name was Dr.Gore. He performed late stage abortions for families who wanted to punish their daughters for getting pregnant. The babies brains were sucked out as it was being born. The mother had to go through the whole labor process without any medicine for pain.

At old Watts Hospital a mentally retarded 12 yr old was brought in from a mental institution to be given an abortion and a hysterectomy. They didn't bring in the man who did this to her so he could be castrated and have his penis removed.The staff was told not to tell.The girl was past 5 months pregnant. I believe the people of this state who thought they had the right to play God and punish women had better fall on their knees and repent befor God decides to nuke this state into oblivion.

North Carolina, you cannot possibly make up for the evil you have done. This state is known as the most ignorant in the country. Your courts are corrupt. Your legal system is a joke. You murder the innocent and give praise to the depraved. God help you.
