Posted on 01/24/2011 7:18:51 PM PST by Iam1ru1-2
It was morbidly appropriate that the very week when our nation was observing the sad anniversary of the infamous 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, which created a constitutional right to slaughter unborn babies, a macabre story broke about the discovery of an abortion mill officials are describing as a house of horrors.
Over the past three decades, Kermit Gosnell, 69, has raked in millions of dollars in blood money running his own little genocidal killing factory out of a run-down storefront in a poor West Philadelphia neighborhood. Gosnell, who is black, specialized in murdering the babies of blacks, immigrants and other poor women.
Three decades. And no one knew? Please.
In fact, this butcher was known far and wide as the doctor who would provide late term abortions for minority women. And yet, the authorities were shocked at the gruesome evidence found in the clinic bags, bottles and other containers throughout the place filled with the human remains of murdered babies.
Gov. Ed Rendell, who left office earlier this month, said he was flabbergasted. Incoming Gov. Tom Corbett has ordered a thorough investigation as to why state and local agencies did not discover Gosnells activities before now.
Gosnell is being charged with murder. But why? Wasnt he just helping poor women exercise their right to choose? Out of all the abortionists in America, why is this particular ghoul being singled out for scrutiny? What has he been doing differently than Leroy Carhart in Nebraska or the late George Tiller in Kansas? Two things.
First, a pregnant woman died while in this mans care. According to the district attorneys office, Gosnell is facing a charge of murder in the third degree for the death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar, who died in November of 2009 after being overdosed by an unlicensed teen-age employee with anesthesia prescribed by Gosnell.
And second, in a turn of events that must surely take the prize for hair-splitting, Gosnell was killing babies outside the womb. Unlike, Tiller and Carhart, whose practices performed what have come to be known as partial birth abortions, Gosnell found an easier way to kill babies late in their term.
In a partial birth abortion (frequently done in the eighth or ninth month of pregnancy), the abortionist reaches into the womb with a pair of forceps, grabs hold of the childs feet, pulls him/her feet-first out of the womb and while the babys head is still partially in the birth canal kills the infant by stabbing him/her in the base of the skull and while he/she kicks and squirms for the last time sucks out the babys brain with a vacuum hose.
This procedure is now illegal in all fifty states, thanks to a Republican Congress, former President George W. Bush and a rational Supreme Court, which found that the federal ban on this barbaric practice was, in fact, constitutional.
But for many years, this ghastly method of destroying children was perfectly legal. Gosnell, who is not even licensed to perform abortions, apparently found it easier to simply induce labor, deliver a live baby and then cut his/her spinal chord with a pair of scissors. Snipping, he called it.
So my questions are these: Why was it wrong all those years for Gosnell to do what he has been doing, and yet other late term abortionists across the country went about their grisly business with impunity? And now that it has been declared illegal to perform partial birth abortions, why is it still legal to perform late term abortions in any other manner? And if it is wrong to perform an abortion in the third trimester, is it somehow right to destroy that same life a month earlier?
Early in her tenure, before she ran off the rails in the direction of the pro-abortion left, former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day OConnor once said that Roe vs. Wade was on an inevitable collision course with itself. That collision came last week in a house of horrors in West Philadelphia.
Most pregnant dogs are treated better than this in the US.
The health inspectors and bureaucrats who allowed this to go on need to be in court charged for murder.
It there anyone who can claim that killing a newly born infant is a legal “abortion”.
You would go to jail for treating a dog like that.
Those who could see a slam dunk case for linking one word from one person to the Tucson shootings will be completely unable to find any nexus at all between abortion, Roe v Wade and this.
Isn’t it illegal to destroy a bald eagle? Talk about priorities.
This evil just lends creedence to the claims that abortion is designed to eliminate black people.
I forced myself to read more of the indictment and yes, look at the photos. Baby A, murdered by Gosnell, was a beautiful baby boy. I have to ask myself about his mother: why did she let this monster destroy her own flesh and blood. It is incomprehensible. The more I think about it, the more horrified I am at the women involved and their relatives.
You are seeing what happens when people stop believing in Hell; they may be ashamed of the social ramifications of what they’ve done, but many don’t think of the effect on their soul.
What on earth did these women think was going to happen? Didn’t they realize they were very pregnant? Couldn’t they have put these precious babies up for adoption? What kind of cruelty is this? One girl was brought there by her aunt. Where was the mother?
Adoption would leave these women wondering what ever became of their child, or dreading a knock on the door twenty years later. Their choice is to avoid that altogether, and give them a sick kind of closure.
They prefer death to regret. I wonder how patient “Sue” feels about the death of Baby A whose photograph - a beautiful baby boy - is in the indictment. When I think of the dead babies I cry. Gosnell et al are monsters but these women should not be off the hook either. They sought infanticide, and by golly,that is what they received. I have heard of women reuniting with children they gave up for adoption years before and sometimes they have a relationship as adults. It can work out.
I’ve never let those women off the hook, or any males that push/encourage them to do it; they are all complicit. I couldn’t imagine what those “doctors think when they wake up each day; they probably think like the death camp guards that they are out to save the world...
I honestly don’t understand the women - regardless of how poor they were. This monster charged a fortune for his infanticidal procedures. Didn’t they ever hear of adoption? I have a feeling that none of them will be wearing “I Had an Abortion” t-shirts.
