Skip to comments.Why Kermit Gosnell should be acquitted (/sarc)
Posted on 05/02/2013 5:41:42 AM PDT by Morgana
Kermit Gosnell has been on trial for murder for the past month and a half. By now youve heard it all before: the filthy conditions, the racist practices, the contaminated instruments, and of course the babies delivered alive and killed by snipping their necks with scissors.
I say we acquit him.
There is nothing more disgusting about pulling a baby out and killing her than there is about sticking an instrument into the womb and killing her. Why is it worse if shes a foot away? Is the difference location? Should a few feet of space be the difference between perfectly legal and first degree murder?
Its preposterous. The whole trial is kind of a sham. Let him go. If its legal a few feet to the left inside the womb, then why not just let it be legal a few feet to the right outside the womb?
Let him go. You know what, drop the charges. If I were the prosecuting attorney Id say, We thought about it, and we decided, yknow, if its legal over here, then why not let it be legal over there? If its legal at 24.5 weeks, then what the hell is the difference at 25 weeks? Or 33 weeks? Or a couple days after birth?
Maybe by putting a murderer back on the street we can make our point that there already are murderers walking the streets, legally. Theyre called all the abortionists.
Do we condemn Kermit Gosnell for committing abortions in a filthy, slovenly, contaminated manner? If we do, are we saying its okay to kill babies if you use clean instruments and dont accidentally perforate the uterus? Is it okay to abort lots of black babies if youre just as nice to the black mothers as you are to the white? Is it okay to kill children as long as theyre not a certain size or a certain age?
This is what the pro-abortion people are saying when they condemn Kermit Gosnell. Its not what he did thats the problem; its how he did it. It makes them look bad. They hate looking bad.
But some pro-lifers are doing the same thing. Ive been doing it, too. We want the world to see what abortion is so badly that weve made a figurehead of evil out of Gosnell, when in reality he is absolutely a logical outcome of abortion law in the United States
Letting Kermit Gosnell go might show the citizens of this country how utterly schizophrenic are their attitudes toward abortion.
Try having a conversation with a pro-choice person. Itll probably go something like this sample conversation, which Ive had some version of about 400 times.
Pro-Choice Person: Im pro-choice. I believe in a womans right to choose.
Me: Okay, so you think a woman should be able to go in and get an abortion the month before shes due?
PCP: Give me a break, of course not!
Me: Why not?
PCP: Because I mean its a baby by then.
Me: When does it become a baby?
PCP: Well I mean it can feel pain by then.
Me: So it would be ok to kill me if you anesthetized me first?
PCP: Of course not, but youre a person.
Me: When did I become a person?
Inevitably, the PCP ends up having to admit that there are only two logical criteria for the onset of personhood: conception or birth. Any argument for some designation between these two points is purely arbitrary. By this time theyre pretty committed to holding up their defense of abortion, so they go for birth, although you can tell they dont really like it. At which point its easy to show them how the same arguments for late-term abortion can be made for infanticide. This makes them feel bad, so they either become pro-life or make friends with denial.
Enter Kermit Gosnell. He is absolutely the logical conclusion of the pro-abortion mentality, which is not at all based in logic. Logical reasoning about abortion either leads you to a pro-life viewpoint, or a pro-infanticide viewpoint. A human being of sound mental, emotional, and spiritual health retreats from a pro-infanticide viewpoint and becomes pro-life. The rest remain pro-choice, and deserve to be represented by Kermit Gosnell.
I want Kermit Gosnell walking the streets. I want him free because there is nothing he did that is incompatible with a pro-abortion ideology. I want him to serve as a constant reminder that abortion and infanticide are the same thing, and it was the Supreme Courts idea supported by around half of the citizens of this country - that some doctors are murderers who get to be free citizens.
I want him punished in the following way: he should have to wear a red T-shirt with white letters on it that say I STABBED BABIES IN THE NECK AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS LOUSY T-SHIRT for the rest of his life. Inevitably, there will be a new college band called I Stabbed Babies in the Neck, and youll be able to buy replicas of the T-shirt online, but thats okay. I still want him to have to wear it, every day, for the rest of his life, and be buried in it.
As a country, we dont deserve to get to put Kermit Gosnell in prison and feel good about ourselves. We deserve to have to think about him walking around free. We created him. We should have to see him at the grocery store and the post office, look at his face, and think about what weve done.
Actually, you know what, I changed my mind. I have a way better and more accurate idea for Kermit Gosnells T-shirt: I STABBED BABIES IN THE NECK, BECAUSE YOU LET ME.
If it’s OK 2 minutes before birth, and it’s OK 2 minutes after birth, then LOGICALLY it’s OK at age 22.
Not sure this is /sarc
Sounds like a strategy his defense lawyer will use and probably get away with it.
So, to all of you pro-lifers who are trying to rain on my parade, keep it to yourself, because I don't have the time for that kind of negativity. I've got an abortion to plan, and I just know it's going to be the best non-anesthetized invasive uterine surgery ever!
The funny thing is, I actually have the pro-life movement to thank for this opportunity. If my HMO wouldn't have bowed to their pressure not to cover oral contraceptives, I never would've gotten pregnant in the first place. Then what would I be doing a week from Thursday?
I'll tell you what I wouldn't be doing: going to an awesome abortion clinic where I'll be the center of attention from the minute I put my feet up in those stirrups.
I seriously cannot wait for all the hemorrhaging and the uterine contractions. This abortion is going to be so amazing. I'm definitely taking lots of pictures so I can remember every last detail of the whole experience for years to come and share my great memories with all of my friends, family and co-workers. What an easy decision this was!
So listen up, world: I'm pro-abortion... and I love it! See you at my post-abortion party, everybody!
