OMG!! The horror, and yet people are ELECTED and PRAISED for this action!
The book Lime 5 is an eye opener.
You vote for a ‘pro-choice’ candidate; you are an accessory.
It's THEIR attitude toward killing babies ~ Tom definitely likes it and Ed wallows in filth. They should be held accountable for misfeasance, malfeasance and nonfeasance in this case and brought before the bar for punishment ~
I am so SICKENED by outrages like this, that I cannot even bring myself to READ the details and the articles!
I wonder when Hollywood will make a movie about this guy, like the touchy-feely abortionist as hero films they've made and acclaimed over recent years.
You vote for a pro-choice candidate; you are an accessory
And a host of others who voted to allow the killing of infants in payment for a vote.
Have the ‘Reverends’ Sharpton and Jackson addressed this story as of yet? If not; their silence speaks for itself.
Hollywood will probably make it, but fictionalize it, making it appear as if the guy is a right wing extremist out to exterminate black people.
Good questions. What's the answer?
Are there any others, besides conservatives, who are even interested in this story?
And yet Catholics vote for Democrats all the time. I’m not Catholic bashing here - I’m just pointing it out.
What shock? What outrage? I don’t think you can prick the conscience of the pro-aborts. Most Americans would like to pretend this isn’t happening. Their eyes skip over these articles if they still bother to read the newspapers. The tv news limits coverage so as not to offend the sensibilities of their viewers. Prediction: within 5 years all those involved will have been promoted to higher and better paying positions in the city and state.
The majority of leftists in this country are fully aware of what is happening and they just don’t care. If I ever find leftists trapped in a burning car, I will push the door shut to make sure the vermin properly burn to death.
These...things...are not human and I refuse to treat them as such. They are a disease and there is only one thing to do with a disease!
We carpet-bombed Berlin to stop the war and the holocaust.
The same must be done with the leftists. Do not spare a single one of these vermin. Quarantine the disease!
New England Catholics are big-time supporters of Barack Obama. I asked a conservative Catholic (I actually found one) and asked him why they vote for pro-abort candidates...his reply? "I have no idea."
For what possible palatable reason would this ghoul do this?
What I don't get is the young women I knew in the 70's who always insisted, pounding the table, "I want the freedom to choose for myself! I want that right!!" (Of course, I didn't marry any of them ..... it was a hell of a bad time to be a guy with a conscience back then, running around dating all these young women who would eventually say, "I am a feminist!!! Get used to it!!"s)
But I also know a woman only slightly younger than me -- one of those same women, fiftyish now, who married just a few years ago, and she still says the same thing. One husband, no kids, working, conservative on many issues and ..... still a Gloria Steinem on this issue.
Probably just as well I never married; I just don't understand women ..... or else Betty Friedan did a really good job, Communist apparatchik she was (oh, you didn't know that? -- no, she didn't quit college to follow a guy, that was a lie -- she quit to go to work for the Party, uyup!), screwing over American domestic life and cutting off a generation's worth of babies and jacking up divorce rates. Good Communist mole job, militant sister!! You've got the bourgeoisie chasing their tails now! Fantastic damage to their morale and fertility -- twenty tank divisions couldn't approach the damage you did to our Main Enemy! Comrade Obama is proud of you!
For over two decades Kermitt Gosnell illegally sold prescriptions by day, and on the side, induced early delivery in expectant, indigent, and immigrant mothers. When those induced deliveries did not kill the child off, Gosnell would then either snip the spinal cord with a pair of scissors, slit the throat of the child, or have an assistant (usually unlicensed) do the same.
The women who survived these procedures on at least two occasions fared no better, and now the nation knows that this serial killer will, with any justice at all, go away for the rest of his life. At least he should.
As news of Gosnell's West Philadelphia "practice" made headlines this week you could not help but be moved by the torture, pain, and death this person caused.
The outrage was justifiable.
The discussions of how he was allowed to operate under the radar screen for so long were more than valid. Legitimate questions that were raised by the grand jury deserve answers, and the tax-payers of Pennsylvania need to know that such animals will be dealt with harshly, efficiently, and my preference woul d be--permanently.
Gosnell's last state inspection, according to public records, was in 1993. The general state of things at his clinic location seemed to verify this as human remains and medical waste were stored in boxes in the basement dating from that time. The stories of how he had allowed women to bleed out in the same facilities where his cats would urinate and defecate have been confirmed by multiple women.
He was a monster. He was out of control. He deserves justice to the fullest measure--even if that were to mean the state took his life as a result.
It was as I was reading the details of the procedures he seemed to prefer to perform that I was suddenly struck by an overwhelming question that has not yet gone from my mind.
Why are we so outraged now?
The truth is, the procedure Gosnell preferred is not new. Third term, especially "late term," abortions are performed the same way in overwhelming numbers.
Commonly referred to as "partial birth abortions" the procedure begins the same was as the "Gosnell abortion." Inducing labor and beginning the delivery of the child is where most of the children are lost in both procedures. As many as 75% of the children lose their lives in the process of early induced labor. Leaving roughly 25% of the children involved to have their lives terminated through an additional step.
In partial birth abortion, the child is delivered to within two inches of being free of the birth canal. In the "Gosnell" he delivered the child completely.
But from that point on, little difference between the procedures existed.
Scissors would be used to puncture the base of the skull and to snip the spinal cord. On some occasions then the brains would be crushed and suctioned.
In other words, while Gosnell was collecting jars of tiny feet, severed from the babies he ended the lives of, abortion practitioners from coast to coast were performing the eerily similar procedures. And 100% of them done with the backing of the National Organization for Women, the National Abortion Rights Action League, and a long list of U.S. Senators, including then Senator Barack Obama.
It was State Senator Obama just a few years previous who had also called for votes on three occasions, in a committee that he chaired, in meetings that he had called, in which the life of a born child was in equal jeopardy to the ones Gosnell delivered.
The issue was a debate over whether or not Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois (a hospital operated by the denomination of Obama's church) could continue a practice in which a woman's labor could be induced weeks ahead of delivery. Roughly 75% of the children would die in the process, leaving roughly 25% who survived.
Instead of snipping spinal cords, the hospital would leave the children in the now infamous "soiled utility closet" to perish from exposure and neglect. Sometimes these children would expire in 45 minutes. Many times the children would struggle for life for the full 8 hours of a nurse's shift. And on multiple occasions the children would live for nearly a day.
Jill Stanek, one of the pediatric nurses who worked in the department while this practice was on going later testified before Obama's committee.
Obama's response? (According to Stanek?)
Roughly paraphrased: If a woman entered the hospital with the intent of seeking an abortion, then it was the woman's choice to allow that child to live or die. (Should it survive the induced labor.)
To be clear President Obama is the one and only ever elected federal office holder that has voted in favor of such procedures, and he did so three times, on the record.
All of which leaves me puzzled.
Why is Gosnell a monster, if so many people, including our own president believe it to be the fullest expression of "women's rights" to simply do what he was doing?
I can make a guess. This guy took the practice of abortion to a level that no one had ever imagined. Also, most people didn’t know what partial birth abortion was until recently.
You are probably right
>> Why the shock, Why the outrage, Why now?
Because he was a tacky abortionist.
The “mothers” of these murdered babies are accessories to these murders. They slinked into this stinking Hellspawn den and wanted that 8th month baby in their womb killed by any means necessary. This evil rat bastard took their money and got out the scissors and razor blade and took care of their problem. I think Satan is impressed.
The sad truth is many people know exactly what an abortion is. They don't care. This is about eugenics, although they will not admit it. They don't fight for the "right to choose" because they believe in "freedom of choice." They want abortion legal because they believe it reduces the number of inferior people producing more inferior people.
People like Bill and Melinda Gates, and many others, are involved in a eugenics movement. However, they cannot call it eugenics. The goals haven't changed since Margaret Sanger; they sell it differently.
Mental Images of Bergen Belsen come to mind. EWWWWWWWW.
I think this Gosnell guy is black.
That’s why I said Hollywood would “FICTIONALIZE” a movie about a right winger wanting to exterminate blacks.
