Oh, Jesus. The Guardia Civil found machines to shred aborted fetuses (màquinas trituradores de fetus) in two of the four clinics that were raided here in Barcelona two days ago. The clinics are accused of illegally aborting babies up to 32 weeks of gestation. They only turned the machines on in the mornings because they made so much noise.

The machines were connected to a pipe that flowed into the sewer along with the waste from the toilets.

This investigation has obviously been going on for a while, because they tapped the clinics' telephones (they had a court order). One thing they learned was that the alleged doctors referred to an abortion as a "rompecocos"--that is, a "skull-buster."

It's like something out of a horror movie.

A disgruntled ex-employee informed the authorities, which led to the telephone taps. Some of the "patients" had their phones tapped, too, and some of them were put under surveillance as well. At least fifteen of these women had late-term abortions performed on them, and they are in serious trouble.
