Abortion Activist: Kermit Gosnell Horrors “Just Like Weeding Your Garden”

The passerby tried to justify Dr. Gosnell’s brutal abortions. “It’s not murder.”

Refering to pregnant mothers, she said: “There’s nothing there until there’s love.” TFP volunteer: “If it’s not murder, then what is it?” Pro-abortion woman: “It’s like you’re weeding your garden.” TFP: “Really? Do you kill the weeds?” “You have to love. There’s not life until there’s love.”

On Monday, April 28, 2013, six TFP Student Action members traveled to downtown Philadelphia to campaign against abortion. The atmosphere was highly charged as the young men formed outside the Center for Criminal Justice, where final arguments in the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell were taking place. He is being charged with eights counts of murder.

VIDEO highlights: Prayer vigil to stop abortion

Shortly after arriving and forming beside the main entrance of the court building, TFP members began praying the rosary in reparation for the sin of abortion. Many passersby frequented the busy streets around the courthouse, amid a light rain that persisted through the morning. Volunteers distributed the flyer St. Michael the Archangel and the Pro-Life Victory, showing the need for invoking the prince of the heavenly armies for victory in the fight against abortion. It wasn’t long before this firm condemnation of the sin of abortion was met with some vocal opposition.


Soon after beginning the rosary, two elderly women approached and began shouting insults. “It’s not murder! You men don’t ever have to have one!” This elicited the quick reply “Abortion is a sin, shame on you!”

As another woman passed reading the signs opposing abortion, she said in disgust, “It isn’t murder… it’s just like weeding your garden.” Following her questionable logic, a volunteer replied, “When you uproot the weeds from your garden, what do you do with them? You’re not transplanting them, you’re killing them.”

The negative reactions were counteracted by many supportive comments. A group of young women gave thumbs up as they crossed the intersection, one of whom shouted back, “That’s right, abortion is murder. I’m keeping my baby!” gosnell-trial-philadelphia3

Ending a Media Blackout

The controversial case of Kermit Gosnell received very little media coverage since beginning two months ago. On Friday, April 12, advocates of the unborn sought to end the media blackout by using the social networking site Twitter to openly challenge journalists and media outlets, alleging bias in not reporting one of the most horrific murder trials in living memory.

According to, 166,800 tweets using the #Gosnell hashtag were sent in a matter of 12 hours. This put overwhelming pressure on members of the media, which resulted in admissions of bias and oversight, and new attempts to bring the story to the public. The website was set up to track the coverage of the story, while also showcasing a 20-minute documentary exposing what was dubbed Gosnell’s ‘house of horrors’.

An Offense Against God

As the morning changed to afternoon, TFP Student Action was joined by other abortion opponents for a prayer vigil outside the courthouse. Leaders in the fight for the unborn led the crowd in prayer, and gave prepared statements to the media. Many large signs and banners showed outrage over the crimes Gosnell perpetrated.

Consistent in opposing abortion, one TFP sign read: “Every abortion facility is a house of horrors that offends God!” Anyone who read it immediately reacted, some giving approval, others showing contempt, but the vast majority averting their eyes and choosing to ignore reality.

The campaign came to a close in mid-afternoon, all mindful that the outcome of the trial was still hanging in the balance. The six young men headed home, more determined than ever to continue legal and peaceful battle to end abortion. May St. Michael lead the way in this spiritual combat to bring about a pro-life victory in America and throughout the world.

“You have to love. There’s not life until there’s love.”

One of the stupidest comments I’ve ever heard from a pro-abortionist.

Just like Margaret Sanger said... They’re just human weeds.

After watching Fox’s documentary, I am still pretty much in shock. How an employee could kill an obviously well-developed baby is just sickening.

Gosnell was involved in serial infanticide. That goes way, way beyond the legal definition of “abortion”.

Any individual who tries to justify what this butcher did to those infants is either blind or a sociopath themselves.

I remember an article a while back discussing if/when it was ok to kill a baby after birth. These were some “medical ethicists” from Australia debating this.

To take their position to its utter extreme you would never be able to convict anyone again. All your lawyer would have to do would be to declare it an abortion in the 18th year or however old the person was who was murdered.

I think if you put the killing of babies who survive the first attempt on their lives in this framework it begins to paint the picture of just how depraved the mindset of the baby killer is.

at what point does it become murder? when the child is able to speak? potty trained?

the only difference in what Gosnell and planned parenthood and Obama are arguing about is time. how young is young enough to kill a baby.....better...a person.

that’s a question they do want to answer and its one I wish our side would ask everytime the issue of the legalized murder of babies comes up.

Kenite woman doesn’t realize God already loved the one He placed in the womb.

The ‘weeding your garden’ philosophy was taught in our local junior college biology class several years ago. People complained, but the teacher remained.

They are psychopaths. They have no empathy for others, and will do anything to benefit themselves. Abortionists, of course, get to live lavish lifestyles at the expense of the women and babies they exploit. Abortion clients get to be spontaneous and indulge their base physical pleasures without worry about consequences of that behavior.

On Google, I found estimates that anywhere from 1 to 4% of the population are psychopaths. That's more than enough to fully staff every abortion mill. Probably a significant number of abortion clients come from that segment of the population, as well.

The "good" thing is that, since psychological traits are mostly inborn, people with the traits that make them support the abortion industry are weeding those traits out of the population. Women who have abortions--especially those having multiple abortions--are less likely than other women to have live children. They are less likely to want live children; they are less likely to be able to carry a pregnancy to term.

It would be interesting to compare the proportion of psychopaths now to what the proportion was 50 years ago.
