Will He Now Become a Pro-Life Advocate?
The Associated Press reports today that:
he delivered babies who were still moving, whimpering or breathing, and that he and his assistants dispatched the newborns by "snipping" their spines, as he referred to it.
Authorities raiding Gosnell's clinic for drugs instead found bags and bottles of fetuses, including jars of severed feet, along with bloodstained furniture, dirty medical instruments and cats roaming the premises.
Prosecution experts said one of the babies was nearly 30 weeks along when the abortion took place, and was so big that Gosnell allegedly joked the baby could "walk to the bus." A second baby was said to be alive for about 20 minutes before a clinic worker snipped the neck. A third was born in a toilet and was moving before another clinic employee severed the spinal cord, according to testimony.
A fourth baby let out a whimper before Gosnell cut the neck, prosecutors alleged. Gosnell was acquitted in that baby's death, the only one of the four in which no one testified to seeing the baby killed.
Gosnell was also convicted of infanticide, racketeering and more than 200 counts of violating Pennsylvania's abortion laws by performing third-term abortions or failing to counsel women 24 hours in advance.
And now the media will drop this story like a hot potato and focus on the Ohio kidnapping ad nauseam. The question remains: how many other doctors out there are performing these same acts? How many have not been investigated? The more important answer to the question "what is abortion" should be answered in this story, if the media would actually give it adequate coverage so that the uninformed American reader can ponder the answer "so this is abortion." Abortion is barbaric. Legal, illegal, inside, outside, abortion is gruesome, barbaric, and belongs to a thing of the ancient past, not in an advanced culture where we praise the life saving of 3 kidnapped women while simultaneously give our societal blessing on the life-depriving of innocent unborn children.
