Persecution in America

Abortionist says no one likes black babies?

March 4, 2019

These disgusting words have been uttered to me repeatedly by a man that I meet on a sidewalk. A man of influence. His name is Jacob Kalo. My husband can corroborate, Scott also heard him say it.

Kalo took the Hippocratic oath more than three decades ago as he became an obstetrician focused on caring for pregnant women. Somewhere along the way, he switched gears, choosing pregnancy termination over pregnancy care.

Kalo’s intention is not to deliver living babies anymore. He provides gynecological services at three clinics in southeast Michigan: East Detroit, Sterling Heights and West Bloomfield.

I became acquainted with Kalo while standing on the public sidewalk in front of the West Bloomfield, MI, clinic that he owns. In order to show moms, dads, Kalo and the whole community that people care about them and what’s going on at 6765 Orchard Lake Road, I regularly do outreach in front of the Women’s Center.

Joined by at least one other person, we may hold a sign, we pray with our eyes open, and we’re always eager to talk with anyone who is willing. We have resources to share with women in need. We have facts to share about human development. We are willing to listen to objections and discuss situations. We get happy honks. We get fingers.

On Saturday morning, October 28, 2017, Kalo approached me on the sidewalk, to talk, for the first time. We have spoken since then at least ten times.

He is eager for me to believe that he is helping women, how he has helped so many over the years. I remind him that someone necessarily must die in the process.

Kalo does not dispute that the “POC” (product of conception) that he vacuum extracts or chemically aborts is actually a human. “I only abort before viability,” he asserts.

The more dependent a human is on us, the more we care for it: babies, toddlers, children, the infirm, the disabled, the elderly. Preborn babies depend on their mothers to survive. (Click here to learn the meaning of the acronym SLED.)

“But, it’s legal,” he continues.

So was slavery, I remind him. So were the anti-semitic policies of Nazi Germany.

Sadly, legal is not always synonymous with right. In January of 1973, the Supreme Court legalized abortion throughout all 40 weeks of pregnancy. More than 60 million people have been aborted since then.

Kalo brazenly continues his defense, “Nobody wants black babies. Adoption agencies turn them away and so they come to me.”

Despite my persistence, he refuses to name any social service or adoption agency that has turned away a woman who wanted to allow her baby to be adopted.
