Skip to comments.AP’s Crack Reporting: “Abortions Are Typically Performed In Utero”
Posted on 03/21/2013 7:52:50 PM PDT by Morgana
As both Matthew Balan and Mark Steyn have noted, the mainstream media has for the most part gone missing in reporting the murder trial of late-term Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell.
Gosnell, his wife Pearl, and eight employees stand accused of murdering seven newborn abortion survivors and one mother. Not only has MSM gone missing, when it does report on this horrendous story, it often gets important details wrong or makes inexplicable gaffes.
For instance, journalist MaryClaire Dale reported in a March 20 Associated Press story:
[Employee Adrienne Moton] once had to kill a baby delivered in a toilet, cutting its neck with scissors, she said. Asked if she knew that was wrong, she said, At first I didnt.
Abortions are typically performed in utero.
Abortions are typically performed in utero? Where else are they committed? While it is true fallopian tubes are the other site a preborn baby may be killed due to an ectopic pregnancy, this was certainly not the context here. Nor does anyone ever parse a generalized conversation abortion to that specificity.
The context here was that a baby was murdered ex utero outside the uterus, after delivery. And apparently in certain scenarios this is acceptable, according to Ms. Dale?
Perhaps Ms. Dale believes, as does Barack Obama, that abortion survivors may be legally killed in accordance with a mothers wishes to terminate her pregnancy.
Speaking of the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, reporter Joseph Slobodzian of the Philadelphia Inquirer failed when reporting:
After the federal government banned the rare, so-called live-birth abortion procedure in 2007, late-term abortion providers like Gosnell switched to Digoxin, a heart drug, to kill the fetus in the womb. The remains are then removed from the woman.
Although I appreciate that Slobodzian called them remains, rather than pregnancy or contents of the uterus, it was the partial-birth abortion ban that was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2007. The Born Alive Act was signed into law in 2002.
At least the AP and other news outlets are getting better at calling abortion survivors babies rather than fetuses. LifeNews.com Note: Jill Stanek fought to stop live birth abortions after witnessing one as an RN at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois. That led to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act legislation, signed by President Bush, that would ensure that proper medical care be given to unborn children who survive botched abortion attempts.
Thank you very much Captain Obvious!
Normally I’d not ping you for this one... but that really is the title.
The brilliance is just stunning.

Witness: No, he was sitting on the table wondering why I wanted to do an autopsy.
He was sitting on the table wondering why I was performing an autopsy on him.
I’ve heard that one before.
Good thing I wasn’t on that jury cause I’d have laughed myself silly.
* Lawyer: “When he went, had you gone and had she, if she wanted to and were able, for the time being excluding all the restraints on her not to go, gone also, would he have brought you, meaning you and she, with him to the station?”
* Other Lawyer: “Objection. That question should be taken out and shot.”
God. Does not care about excuse.
how would anyone keep track of that?
Lawyer: “Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?”
Lawyer: “Did you check for blood pressure?”
Lawyer: “Did you check for breathing?”
Lawyer: “So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?”
Lawyer: “How can you be so sure, Doctor?”
Witness: “Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.”
Lawyer: “But could the patient have still been alive nevertheless?”
Witness: “Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law somewhere.”
