Abortion Doctor Gosnell Given Life Instead of Death

Will He Now Become a Pro-Life Advocate?

The Associated Press reports today that:

A Philadelphia abortion doctor convicted of killing three babies who were born alive in his grimy clinic agreed Tuesday to give up his right to an appeal and faces life in prison but will be spared a death sentence. 
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, was found guilty Monday of first-degree murder in the deaths of the babies who were delivered alive and killed with scissors.

His gruesome acts include the following atrocities:

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.

One account added that the baby in the toilet was trying to get out using a swimming motion.

The story added:

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.

So will abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell be able to reflect on his actions and ponder being spared the death penalty and turn into a pro-life advocate from prison?  Let's pray for this.  But in the meantime, while America hails "choice" as "progressive women's health", this story reveals what abortion truly is:

A gruesome, barbaric, attack on innocent unborn children at the hands of society.  May America come to its senses like they did with slavery, that the victims of abortions, the innocent, vulnerable, and helpless of society must be recognized for the freedoms they deserve.  The most fundamental of freedoms: the right to merely exist.

America hails itself for abolishing slavery and allowing women to vote as the great turning points in making our nation a noble country; but since 1973, abortion promoters turned back the clock to barbarian times by legalizing abortion.  Abortion must be overturned if we are to look at our nation as a noble, just, and freedom loving country that it could become.
