Ive often thought that one of the best things that could happen to the pro-life movement is for the pro-choice movement to get its own 24-hour cable channel.
Just give them a camera, give them a microphone, and let them talk. And talk. And talk some more.
The more they try to justify their position, the more self-evidently appalling their arguments become.
This is what went through my mind as I read excerpts from Gosnells Babies, a story released today in Philadelphia Magazine.
In it, the countrys most notorious abortionist, Kermit Gosnell, is quoted as saying:
In an ideal world, wed have no need for abortion. But bringing a child into the world when it cannot be provided for, that there are not sufficient systems to support, is a greater sin. I considered myself to be in a war against poverty, and I feel comfortable with the things I did and the decisions I made.
Theres a word for Gosnells belief system: eugenics.
In fact, note the striking similarity between these words spoken by Gosnell and those spoken by Planned Parenthood founder and eugenicist extraordinaire Margaret Sanger in an eye-opening interview conducted by Mike Wallace in 1957:
WALLACE: Do you believe in sin When I say believe I dont mean believe in committing sin do you believe there is such a thing as a sin?
SANGER: I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically. Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when theyre born. That to me is the greatest sin that people can can commit.
Also of note is the fact that Gosnell is convinced that his conviction was motivated by religion:
I have come to believe that the presumption of guilt was compounded by religious convictions, Gosnell said. Were you aware that Seth [Williams, Philadelphias district attorney] was an altar boy? Did you know of the strong Catholic presence in the homicide division?
As if the only people who believe infanticide-by-decapitation is monstrously wrong are Catholics.
An excerpt of Gosnells Babies is available here. The full, expanded version of the story is available only as an e-book. Gosnell Needs Your Prayers
Clearly, Kermit Gosnell isnt sorry for what he did. In fact, hes not even close to being sorry for what he did.
He needs prayers. Whose prayers? Yours. Because if you dont pray for him, who will?
Planned Parenthood was still anti-abortion in the early 1960s. I’m not sure they changed before she died in 1966.
Has he confessed sorrow for the way in which the grisly murders of the babies took place, or for the filthy conditions of his clinic, or the lack of care for the mothers?
Yes, pray for him and let God decide. Miracles can happen.
Why would I pray for a happy, willing servant of Satan.
Because we are commanded by our Lord to do so. However, Mr. Gosnell was given a free will by God and no one knows whether or not he will ever ask God’s forgiveness for what he has done. If not, then we most assuredly know of his fate after this life.
“14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”
Let’s see, six billion people in the world need to be prayed for. Minus the Democrats, that leaves 5 billion, 8 hundred million, approximately, people that need my prayers. I’m sorry if I don’t have time to pray for Kermit Gosnell. I actually just spent way too much time on him by writing this.
He committed no sins against me, therefore I cannot forgive him. Also, I didn't hear him ask to be forgiven, nor has he repented, to my knowledge.
“He committed no sins against me, therefore I cannot forgive him”
Well, he committed sins against all of society, but more importantly against God. An extension of forgiving people is beseeching God to forgive others who sinned against Him. Pick any prophet to find examples of that.
“Also, I didn’t hear him ask to be forgiven, nor has he repented, to my knowledge.”
Nobody asked Christ for forgiveness when they were tormenting Him, but He still asked the Father to forgive them.
The smithsonian honors Margaret Sanger. I used to get their magazine. They quit writing me after I wrote to them a couple of times.
