Family of Irving 'Bud' Feldkamp, Owner of the Nation's Largest PrivatelyOwned Abortion Chain, Dies in Montana Plane CrashMEDIA ADVISORY, Mar. 24 /Christian Newswire/ -- Some of you may have seenthe major news story of the private plane that crashed into a Montanacemetery, killing 7 children and 7 adults.
But what the news sources fail to mention is that the Catholic Holy CrossCemetery owned by Resurrection Cemetery Association in Butte - contains amemorial for local residents to pray the rosary, at the 'Tomb of theUnborn'. This memorial, located a short distance west of the church, waserected as a dedication to all babies who have died because of abortion.
What else is the mainstream news not telling you? The family who died in thecrash near the location of the abortion victim's memorial, is the family ofIrving 'Bud' Feldkamp, owner of the largest for-profit abortion chain in thenation.
Family Planning Associates was purchased four years ago by Irving Moore"Bud" Feldkamp III, owner of Allcare and Hospitality Dental Associates andCEO of Glen Helen Raceway Park in San Bernardino. The 17 California FamilyPlanning clinics perform more abortions in the state than any other abortionprovider - Planned Parenthood included - and they perform abortions throughthe first five months of pregnancy.
Although Feldkamp is not an abortionist, he reaps profits of blood moneyfrom the tens of thousands of babies that are killed through abortionsperformed every year at the clinics he owns. His business in the abortionindustry was what enabled him to afford the private plane that was carryinghis family to their week- long vacation at The Yellowstone Club, amillionaires- only ski resort.
The plane went down on Sunday, killing two of Feldkamp's daughters, twosons-in-law and five grandchildren along with the pilot and four familyfriends. The plane, a single-engine turboprop flown by Bud Summerfield ofHighland, crashed into the Catholic cemetery and burst into flames, only 500ft. from its landing destination. All aboard were killed.
The cause of the crash is a mystery. The pilot, who was a former militaryflier who logged over 2,000 miles, gave no indication to air trafficcontrollers that the aircraft was experiencing difficulty when he asked todivert to an airport in Butte. Witnesses report that the plane suddenlynosedived toward the ground with no apparent signs of a struggle. There wasneither a cockpit voice recorder nor a flight data recorder onboard, and noradar clues into the planes final moments because the Butte airport is notequipped with a radar facility. Some speculate that the crash was due to iceon the wings, but this particular plane model has been tested for icyweather and experts have stated that ice being the cause is unlikely.
In my time working for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, I helpedorganize and conduct a weekly campaign where youth activists stood outsideof Feldkamp's mini-mansion in Redlands holding fetal development signs andraising community awareness regarding Feldkamp's dealings in child murderfor profit. Every Thursday afternoon we called upon Bud and his wife Pam torepent, seek God's blessing and separate themselves from the practice ofchild killing.
We warned him, for his children's sake, to wash his hands of the innocentblood he assisted in spilling because, as Scripture warns, if "you did nothate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you". (Ezekiel 35:6)
A news source states that Bud Feldkamp visited the site of the crash withhis wife and their two surviving children on Monday. As they stood near thetwisted and charred debris talking with investigators, light snow fell onthe tarps that covered the remains of their children.
I don't want to turn this tragic event into some creepy spiritual 'I toldyou so' moment, but I think of the time spent outside of Feldkamp's - PamFeldkamp laughing at the fetal development signs, Bud Feldkamp trying not tomake eye contact as he got into his car with a small child in tow - and Ithink of the haunting words, 'Think of your children.' I wonder if thosewords were haunting Feldkamp as well as he stood in the snow among theremains of loved ones, just feet from the 'Tomb of the Unborn'?
I only hope and pray that in the face of this tragedy, Feldkamp recognizeshis need for repentance and reformation. I pray that God will use thisunfortunate catastrophe to soften the hearts of Bud and Pam and that theywill draw close to the Lord and wash their hands of the blood of thousandsof innocent children, each as precious and irreplaceable as their own.
"I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Chooselife, then." (Deut. 30:19)
