Utah woman kills and stores seven newborns


Originally posted at Live Action News

Police in Utah recently made a discovery in a Pleasant Grove home they’ll likely never forget. It appears that, over the course of a decade, 39-year-old Megan Huntsman delivered seven full-term infants. The gruesome twist is that Huntsman allegedly killed six of the children after they were born alive, and then stored their bodies in boxes in the home’s garage.


Megan Huntsman’s behavior is reminiscent of the late Orem, Utah, mother that covertly gave birth three times and then left the infants to die. In 1999, Darcie Jo Baum bled to death after delivering an infant son in a basement toilet where she left him struggling in vain to survive. Too late to save Darcie Jo and her three babies, Utah instituted a Safe Haven law in 2001, which, if Megan had been unselfish enough to spare their lives, could have saved six human beings.

The Safe Haven law enables biological parents to anonymously relinquish custody of the newborns without the threat of being prosecuted.

Instead of choosing life and anonymity,  alleged serial killer Huntsman chose to consign at least six of her children to a fate the Safe Haven law was enacted to prevent.

As a result, Megan Huntsman is accused of delivering the children, systematically killing them one-by-one, placing them into cardboard boxes, and storing their frail frames like gardening tools or old books in the garage of a house she hasn’t lived in for three years.

In anticipation of moving back into the house owned by his parents for the summer, Megan’s ex-husband Darren West came by to clean up the garage, which is when the gruesome discovery was made. It was Darren who called the police.

Recently released from prison, the police responded to West’s call and after searching the property found one full-term infant inside the woman’s home, there since 2011, that appeared to be stillborn. According to police Capt. Michael Roberts, six dead infants were then discovered packaged up and stored in the garage.

Megan Huntsman and Darren West have three daughters together aged 18, and 20 and 13 years old. The three girls still live in the house where the babies were found. DNA testing is underway to determine whether Mr. West is also the biological father of the seven, count them, seven dead babies.

After the bodies were discovered, Megan, who other than a 2011 driving citation has no criminal record, was taken into custody and accused of six counts of murder. Following her arrest, Huntsman admitted to strangling or suffocating six of the infants. Her bail is set at $6 million, $1 million for each count of murder.

Longtime neighbor Sharon Chipman told police that she had noticed Megan gaining and losing weight over the years but never surmised that she might have been pregnant. Chipman was shocked calling Megan a great neighbor whom she trusted to watch her toddler grandson for years.

“She took good care of him. She was good. This really shocks me,” she said.

Aaron Hawker, Huntsman’s next-door neighbor, also never suspected Huntsman of being pregnant. Mr. Hawker described the mother with the six dead babies in the garage as a great neighbor, and her ex husband (the one who found, may have fathered the children, and who is not being accused of any crime) as “a good guy.”

Clearly after baby number three, Megan exercised unconventional measures in planning her parenthood. After all, in the minds of the Planned Parenthood crowd the desire is that “every child…be a wanted child” or their lives intrinsically lack value.

The question is, could Ms. Huntsman have merely been confused and felt she was exercising her right to choose, but choosing to do it post- (not pre-) birth?

What happens when a child is born alive is a decision Florida Planned Parenthood lobbyist, Alison Laport Snow, on behalf of Planned Parenthood in 2013, proclaimed should be a “left up to the woman, her family, and the physician.” In Huntsman’s case, the physician wasn’t present, so she decided for herself.


Megan Huntsman is a woman who performed filicide on six of her children whose delicate corpses have lain, some for as long as a decade, in cardboard boxes wrapped in towels like old trophies. Although innocent until proven guilty, for all intents and purposes, and based on her own admission, Megan Huntsman is a bona fide serial killer.

Therefore, considering huge influence Planned Parenthood has had on the thinking of women like Megan Huntsman, maybe in her next FUSE Network interview Cecile Richards could provide her spin on the Huntsman murders.

Perhaps Richards could clarify for America how Megan Huntsman’s actions differed from those of abortionist Kermit Gosnell who saved trophy feet from full term aborted fetuses, or Jeffrey Dahmer who stored parts of his victim’s anatomy in his refrigerator.

Or maybe not.

Kermit the Killer

Family practitioner/uncertified OB/GYN Dr. Kermit Gosnell has been charged with the systematic murder of hundreds, maybe even thousands of children.  In addition, it appears Kermit is personally responsible for collateral damage in the form of an occasional dead woman or two.

Dr. Gosnell is charged with the death of 41 year-old Karnamaya Mongar who, while exercising the right to choose, died while submitting her unborn child to safe, legal and not-so-rare feticide in Kermit the Killer’s clinic.  Ms. Mongar “overdosed on painkillers during an abortion in her 18th or 19thweek of pregnancy” in a health center the dead woman’s brother said was both “dirty and bloody.”

Dirty and bloody are standard slaughterhouse fare.  Executioners are notorious for failing to keep pristine sterile environments. So, it’s no wonder Gosnell reused “unsanitary instruments and perform[ed] procedures in filthy rooms.”  In fact, according to patients who made it out alive, “Some of the rooms had litter boxes and animals present at the time of the operations.” Filth may be why Gosnell was named in 46 malpractice suits, one of which involved a 22 year-old woman who died of sepsis and a perforated uterus.

According to District Attorney Seth Williams, women came from as far away as the mid-Atlantic because Gosnell could always be counted on to perform a late-term abortion.  However, unlike Kermit’s minority patients, “White women from the suburbs were ushered into a separate, slightly cleaner area because Gosnell believed they were more likely to file complaints.”

In addition to providing third-trimester reproductive services, Dr. Gosnell is also charged with purposely birthing and then barbarically killing seven viable infants, “born alive during failed illegal late-term abortions.” None of the seven dead human beings were granted the right to life by their mothers, who entrusted Kermit and unlicensed clinic workers with the job of cutting their child’s spinal column with a pair of dirty scissors and disposing, bagging, or placing their pieces in oversized mason jars.

A search of the Family Women’s Medical Society building “revealed that bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building. Jars containing the severed feet of babies lined a shelf.”

Remember serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer? Jeffrey also saved body part mementos. Much like Dahmer, Dr. Gosnell collected trophies, but the doctor’s consisted mostly of low-income, minority babies. The difference between Dahmer and Gosnell is that Kermit’s victims were a lot smaller and the doctor was happy to exterminate regardless of gender.

Unlike Dahmer, who earned nothing for murder, necrophilia and cannibalism, Gosnell’s butchery earned “$1.8 million in one year alone.” According to authorities, in a few short hours Doc pocketed “$325 for first-trimester abortions and $1,600 to $3,000 for abortions up to 30 weeks. The clinic took in $10,000 to $15,000 a day” in blood money.

Now, three decades and a pile of dead bodies later, Gosnell is accused of “Infanticide, Conspiracy, Abortion at 24 or more weeks, Abuse of a Corpse, Theft, Corruption of Minors, Solicitation and other related offenses.”

Running a lawful enterprise in a needy community, Dr. Gosnell likely viewed himself as a committed servant of the commonweal. It would be both confusing and frustrating for someone like Kermit to find himself in prison.  All the man was trying to do was offer a legal service to low-income women without the hindrance of small details like length of gestation or postnatal fetal fortitude.

Logically, a dead baby is a dead baby.  Does it really matter how far along the developmental trajectory a child is destroyed?  Besides, if the President of the United States is not in a “pay grade” to determine when life begins, should an uncertified Pennsylvania OB/GYN be held to a higher standard?  Whether it is 10 weeks, 24 weeks, full-term or born alive, either way the same unwanted baby would be dead, so why penalize a mother for not knowing enough to visit her friendly neighborhood abortion clinic a few weeks earlier?

Let’s face it, the only reason Kermit, his wife, and eight other clinic workers are sitting in a jail cell is largely because of a pesky federal law enacted during pro-lifer George W. Bush’s administration.  The Born Alive Infant Protection Act requires medical facilities that earn their keep by killing the unborn “to provide appropriate medical care and treatment for…children who were born alive after a failed abortion.”

Additional thoughts on the subject published exclusively on  Jeannie-ology and not part of the original article:

In Kermit’s world, what’s the big deal?  Mom comes to Dr. G for help because she doesn’t want a baby. Gosnell slides the litter box out of the room, quickly brushes off the obstetrical table, induces labor, and a squirming baby is delivered.  As the infant gasps for breath, lets out a whimper and shivers from the cold air, Champion of Choice Dr. Kermit severs the spinal cord, tosses the baby into a garbage bag, and when Mom comes to, she’s none the wiser. Thanks to Dr. Gosnell, another satisfied customer sips some warm orange juice from a plastic cup and goes home relieved and liberated from the prospect of unwanted motherhood.

In fact, when it comes to the Born Alive Act (HR 2175), there is one man in particular who might empathize with Kermit and his dilemma. Barack Obama prides himself on placing the right to choose above the right to life. Barack even opposed a bill preventing partial birth abortions which, in essence, except for a few minutes here or there, is no different than what Kermit Gosnell administered daily in his blood-splattered clinic.

President Obama may not literally cut tiny, pencil-thin spinal cords with scissors, but he proudly attests to being more concerned with Roe v. Wade not being “undermined” than wrapping a shivering infant, with skin as thin as tissue paper, in a blanket. Barack Obama believes providing the frail and powerless with oxygen and warmth “burden[s] the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion.”  “Burdening the original decision” with a living child is precisely the type of situation Kermit Gosnell has been working hard to avoid for 30 years.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell is likely going to jail for literally addressing Barack Obama’s concern that nothing should interfere with the decision of a woman and her doctor to induce labor and destroy a living human being. The difference is, with scissors in hand Kermit personally makes short work of a process Obama thinks may take a little longer, but in the end has the same result.
