The Little Shop of Horrors

IN THE OLD James Bond movie "Diamonds Are Forever," evil Ernst Stavro Blofeld famously remarked that "if we blew up Kansas, nobody would hear about it for years."

I don't know why it took two years for us to learn about this news story out of Kansas. However, I will say this: if this account is factually correct in its entirety, it is one of the most horrific, revolting and barbaric things I have read about in years. The story starts as follows, with my emphasis added:

A Kansas City (Kan.) abortionist is out of business after investigators discovered a grisly house of horrors at his clinic with fetuses kept in Styrofoam cups in his refrigerator and one employee accusing him of microwaving one and stirring it into his lunch.

The abortionist in question has denied the allegation of cannibalism. But why it took more than 18 months for Kansas authorities to close the man's clinic and revoke his medical license, I have no idea.

Here's the story in its entirety.
