Anti-Choice Activists Become Cheerleaders for Death of Children

Whack jobs on the extremist anti-choice front who are saying ‘œI told you so’ concerning that plane crash in Butte, MT last week. Many of the people who tragically died, including children, were related to Irving Feldkamp, who owns a business that provides abortions. The whack jobs are going all ‘œFred Phelps’ all over the internet now.

This is really a disgusting story. The plane crash in Butte, Montana the other day Killed the parents and children in three families. Seven adults and seven children died. That’™s a true tragedy. The families were coming up to meet Irving ‘œBud’ Feldkamp and his wife for a ski vacation. Feldkamp’™s two daughters and their children were on board the plane, as well as some family friends. That’™s the stark tale of the crash, with no editorializing, as reported by

But there’™s more to the story, and that more is what the anti-choice people are focused on. Irving Feldkamp is evidently a dentist, but he owns a few other things as well, including a race track, Glen Helen Raceway Park in San Bernardino, and Allcare, which may be a holding company for Family Planning Associates, a for-profit provider of family planning services, including legal abortions. There’™s a woman named Gingi Edmonds, an anti-choice activist, who writes about Mr. Feldkamp, most of whose family just died in a tragic plane crash. Despite her disclaimer, it appears Gingi Edmonds is dancing on the graves of Feldkamp’™s grandchildren. From the Gingi Edmonds blog:

In my time working for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, I helped organize and conduct a weekly campaign where youth activists stood outside of Feldkamp’™s mini-mansion in Redlands holding fetal development signs and raising community awareness regarding Feldkamp’™s dealings in child murder for profit. Every Thursday afternoon we called upon Bud and his wife Pam to repent, seek God’™s blessing and separate themselves from the practice of child killing.

We warned him, for his children’™s sake, to wash his hands of the innocent blood he assisted in spilling because, as Scripture warns, if ‘œyou did not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you’. (Ezekiel 35:6)

A news source states that Bud Feldkamp visited the site of the crash with his wife and their two surviving children on Monday. As they stood near the twisted and charred debris talking with investigators, light snow fell on the tarps that covered the remains of their children.

I don’™t want to turn this tragic event into some creepy spiritual ‘œI told you so’ moment, but I think of the time spent outside of Feldkamp’™s – Pam Feldkamp laughing at the fetal development signs, Bud Feldkamp trying not to make eye contact as he got into his car with a small child in tow – and I think of the haunting words, ‘œThink of your children.’ I wonder if those words were haunting Feldkamp as well as he stood in the snow among the remains of loved ones, just feet from the ‘Tomb of the Unborn’™?

I only hope and pray that in the face of this tragedy, Feldkamp recognizes his need for repentance and reformation. I pray that God will use this unfortunate catastrophe to soften the hearts of Bud and Pam and that they will draw close to the Lord and wash their hands of the blood of thousands of innocent children, each as precious and irreplaceable as their own.

‘œI have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then.’ (Deut. 30:19)

Wow! Sure, Gingi tells us she doesn’™t want to use the tragic deaths of children for her own ends, but that’™s exactly what she does. It shouldn’™t surprise us that her words are repeated at LifeNews and ChristianNewsWire, among other places. Perhaps the most egregious place is at Hannity’™s web site forums, where the comments about the story are truly disgusting, but where at least some people are trying to point out that cheerleading the death of seven children isn’™t appropriate behavior no matter the circumstances.

The children died here. Fred Phelps is likely headed to protest at the funerals of those children and their parents. From the words spinning throughout whack job extremist Christian web sites, Fred Phelps could get a whole lot of joiners to witness, too.
