What I saw at the Gosnell trial
Phillyburbs.com ^ | April 13, 2013 | J.D. Mullane

It is hard to decide the most appalling images to emerge Thursday at the murder trial of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell. What happened in his abortion clinic is beyond any morbid Hollywood horror.

If you build it, they will come.

The Socialists are winning. What more PROOF do we need? Life means NOTHING to these ghouls and ANYONE that votes for the Dems.

However - maybe this guy is just a very, VERY clever Serial Killer?

Maybe all abortionists are? When you side with EVIL, it is what it is.

Thank you for posting this, and the link to the photos.

Finally good to see some actual evidence.

I’m getting prepared for all the ‘flip-flopping’ that is about to happen.

Fetal feet:

That is actually one of the milder images in the report. Another image shows the back of a baby's neck after the spinal cord was "snipped." Some of the dead fetuses shown are clearly old enough to have survived outside the womb.

I hope that pro-lifers use the photos, spreading them around the Internet. Their message gets past the liberal filters.

I know a lot of liberal older women who just regard this as the price of their daughters sexual freedom. And they still go to church.

Sexual freedom???

What I wish was posted in every college ladies' room and dormitory and health clinic:

SEXUAL FREEDOM
"Free" to have sex outside of marriage
"Free" to use contraception
"Free" to have an abortion
Not free to save yourself for marriage
Not free to wait
Not free to say NO
HOW FREE ARE YOU?

I’m sure there are nail salons in Philly that are cleaner than this place.

What is the alleged reason for keeping the body parts of the babies?

What is the alleged reason for keeping the body parts of the babies?

From the Report of the Grand Jury:

Another of the doctor’s practices that defies explanation was his habit of cutting the feet off of aborted fetuses and saving them in specimen jars in the clinic. Kareema Cross showed the Grand Jury photographs she had taken in 2008 of a closet where Gosnell stored jars containing severed feet. During the February 2010 raid, investigators were shocked to see a row of jars on a clinic shelf containing fetal parts. Ashley Baldwin testified that she saw about 30 such jars.

None of the medical experts who testified before the Grand Jury had ever heard of such a disturbing practice, nor could they come up with an explanation for it. The medical expert on abortions testified that cutting off the feet “is bizarre and off the wall.” The experts uniformly rejected out of hand Gosnell’s supposed explanation that he was preserving the feet for DNA purposes should paternity ever become an issue. A small tissue sample would suffice to collect DNA. None of the staff knew of any instance in which fetal feet were ever used for this purpose.

That makes sense. Feet probably look more impressive than fetal scalps.

I wonder if Gosnell was familiar with the “precious feet” pins worn by some pro-lifers and kept the baby feet as a slap in tbe face to that.

The jars of baby parts are like notch marks on his bed post for his sexual conquests. This insanity and the sexual revolution all go down their slippery slopes.

I would LOVE to have just one of the A$$clowns in the press corps to ask that spokes idiot Carney a question about Gosnell with regards to his votes in favor of this type of practice when he was a back bencher in the IL Senate.

This is one of the few votes that O’Bumbler ever took and it is one of the only times he EVER said a word in the IL Senate.

Anybody who defends this is an animal, a beast and should be removed from human society. Somebody should snip Gosnell’s spinal cord. Is the court seeking the death penalty here?

Why did he have a cat in the clinic? It makes me wonder what they were feeding it. The report says he made $1.8 million a year on this business. This is terribly outrageous and obamster supports this stuff, and our tax money is supporting it, and insurance companies are paying for it. How many more like Gosnell are out there?

I think this is one of the reasons the presstitutes are not reporting on this case. They know 0 can be tied to this goulish practice.

I’m sure there are nail salons in Philly that are cleaner than this place.

Not only cleaner but also far more likely to get a visit from the Department of Health.

You Post: “I would LOVE to have just one of the A$$clowns in the press corps to ask that spokes idiot Carney a question about Gosnell with regards to his votes in favor of this type of practice when he was a back bencher in the IL Senate.

This is one of the few votes that O’Bumbler ever took and it is one of the only times he EVER said a word in the IL Senate.”

Exactly - These two rare instances when he was active in the senate should be front and center - maybe we can do a blitz-email to NRA, Rush, FOX ets?

excerpt form article published one month before the disastrous 2008 election:
“The truth be told, in all my years in the Capitol I have never met a legislator who harbors more contempt for the law-abiding firearm owner than does Barack Obama.

Although Obama claims to be an advocate for the 2nd Amendment, his voting record in the Illinois Senate paints a very different picture. While a state senator, Obama voted for a bill that would ban nearly every hunting rifle, shotgun and target rifle owned by Illinois citizens. That same bill would authorize the state police to raid homes of gun owners to forcibly confiscate banned guns. Obama supported a bill that would shut down law-abiding firearm manufacturers including Springfield Armory, Armalite, Rock River Arms and Les Baer. “

Notice how far reaching he wants gun control to be - even to CLOSING GUN MANUFACTURERS.

These two things need the light of day NOW - while they are in the news.
