Told Assistant: 'That's What You Call a Chicken With Its Head Cut Off'
CNSNews ^

Posted on 04/13/2013 10:21:47 PM PDT by chessplayer

[Editor's note: This story includes a graphic photograph, taken from a grand jury report, that shows a murdered baby with its spinal chord severed.]

(CNSnews.com) - According to a Pennsylvania grand jury, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the wealthy Philadelphia abortionist now on trial for seven counts of murdering babies who had survived his late-term abortions, repeatedly sliced the necks of born babies in front of a teenage employee, and once told his long-time assistant (the teenager's mother) that a writhing born baby whose neck he had just severed was like a "chicken with its head cut off."

The citizens of Nazi Germans also turned a blind eye to the murder of millions.

Hopefully in the penitentiary the same observation will be made of the good doctor when he gets shanked.

District Attorney of the city of Philadelphia R. Seth Williams “My comprehension of the English language can’t adequately describe the barbaric nature of Dr. Gosnell. . . Pennsylvania is not a third-world country, . . . There were several oversight agencies that stumbled upon and should have shut down Kermit Gosnell long ago.” Bags and bottles of aborted fetuses “were scattered throughout the building . . . There were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.”[34]

Outgoing Governor Ed Rendell (D-PA) criticized Department of Health officials saying; “I was flabbergasted to learn that the Department of Health did not think their authority to protect public health extended to clinics offering abortion services”.[35]

Incoming Governor Tom Corbett (R-PA) was disappointed that Pennsylvania Department of Health officials had done such a poor job of inspecting abortion facilities, saying through a spokesperson that he was; “appalled at the inaction on the part of the Health Department and the Department of State.”[36]

Mayor Michael Nutter (D-Philadelphia) said; “I think it’s quite clear that, if these allegations are true, we’ve had a monster living in our midst” while vowing to watch the city’s remaining abortion clinics more closely.[37]
Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden (D-Delaware) promised a wide-ranging investigations into the abortions Gosnell performed in Delaware saying; “I’m disturbed by the allegations that were handed up by the grand jury in Philadelphia”.[38]

Vicki Saporta, speaking for the National Abortion Federation, an association of abortion providers, pointed out that Gosnell had been denied membership in the association because his facility did not meet appropriate standards of care, and commented, “Unfortunately, some women don’t know where to turn. You sometimes have substandard providers preying on low-income women who don’t know that they do have other (safe) options.”[39] Saporta also said, “What we saw didn’t meet our standards, but they’d cleaned the place up and hired an RN for our visit. We only saw first-trimester procedures.” [27]

Dayle Steinberg, of Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania, condemned Gosnell, saying, “We would condemn any physician who does not follow the law or endangers anyone’s health...All women should have access to high-quality care when they are vulnerable and facing difficult decisions.”[40]

Former Governor Tom Ridge (Republican) has refused to comment on the matter. It was his administration that ended regular inspections of abortion clinics—a policy that continued until the Gosnell incident. The grand jury report stated that according to officials inspections would be “putting a barrier up to women” seeking abortions. “Warnings—from patients and their attorneys, a doctor at a Philadelphia hospital, women’s health groups, pro-choice groups, and even an employee of the Philadelphia Department of Public Health—failed to prompt state and local authorities to investigate or take action against the clinic.

To liberals, not any more. They have once again moved the goalposts and now consider newborns as a fetus outside the womb. obama himself called newborns fetuses.

And this sick teenager didn’t tell anyone about it at the time!!! Gosnell is a sick, evil monster, but I’m starting to think his assistants were just as f*cked up!

Weren't the German people disarmed some time before that? They had little with which to resist.

On one of those pages from the DA, it gives a number of how many babies that were murdered over his period at that clinic. I wonder why he did not have the PA Health department checking him regularly -Was that influenced because he was a minority doctor and recommended for abortions by Planned Parenthood. If any medical facility would need to be under strict watch and regulations, it would be that women's center. The State Health officials really dropped the ball. Where were they!? Everyone involved in this case needs to be brought up on charges. This should go national so other mothers who are experiencing these unsafe medical and illegal services can be educated/informed that they do not have to go through this type of horrendously and cruel procedures..Liberal women, Michelle Obama, Hillary should be very ashamed that the ideas they work so hard to protect has given us these images to bear knowing some of these kids would be here now playing and some going onto school.

That’s a given for anyone working at an abortion clinic I’d think.

But remember, plenty of people on the right and here on FR recently said we should mellow our extremist views in exchange for votes so they should have no problem with any of this.

What person could work for this man? What kind of mother could allow her teenage daughter to work for this man? Oh yes anyone that worked there is messed up.

My daughter was taking a medical program where she was assigned clinicals at a Planned Parenthood Clinic. I was very upset, my daughter said it would be ok, they did not do abortions at that clinic so she would not be dealing with anything like that, just working with lab tests. Shortly after she started going she quit, delayed her graduation to get reassigned to different location for clinicals. She told me just the overall attitude toward abortion, the way those that worked there talked, the way they encouraged “clients” to seek abortion- she could not take it.

That is so hard to grasp. All of those people who worked for him for 7, 8 and 9 years never told anyone of the horror and the murder of live children as they watched. Cold heartless people in my book.

Seems to me a female reporter described this so called doctor as an “elegant” man and other admiring terms.

What he did is beyond my comprehension. He enjoyed murdering babies.

The thing is, people compartmentalize. They do not make the connection as a matter of course. In short, many people have forgotten how to think an issue/subject through to the logical conclusion.

Lots of people campaigned for Romney claiming all sorts of things. But he was a man who gave his personal money to fund abortion. Cases like this are the result of abortionists getting money.

So Logically, is it smart to empower such people? Abortionists cannot practice killing without laws to accept it and money to pay them. Simple math. Likewise, people cannot work at such places without being cut from the same cloth.

Romney may not have envisioned live babies being scisored and the clinic employees were just doing a job. History however, shows what happens when both actions are the norm. Repeatedly. Perhaps its time more people put a LOT more thought into this issue.

Next it will be toddlers and then children and anyone else considered "unwanted" by the leftist overlords. They never lost any sleep over the Newtown massacre either. That was just "destruction of [wanted] state property" thereby requiring gun control. The Casey Anthony-types of the USA won't have to flee for very long. Soon they will also be celebrated as heroes for 'womynz rightz'.

The lesson from all this? Leftists are PURE EVIL! They are not 'people' with deferring views. They are a deadly infection upon the Earth. Period.

If you have never seen the pictures, look him up in the “Holocaust Chronicles”. Dr. J. Mengele was also quite elegant in his black SS uniform, deaths head and all.

Just do not forget. The people in black uniforms that murdered over 6 million people in concentration camps were just average bureaucrats, police officers, and chicken farmers; just average people until they bought the political line and put on the uniform. And never forget that the over 6 million number doesn't even include the 10’s of millions that died in the good old socialist gulags.

Also trying to figure out what kind of “doctor” would refer a woman to a sadistic butcher like Gosnell. Someone who is in on the deal, but doesn’t dare do the deed.

Turn the other cheek? Ahh! That just made me so mad. :p Ok, calming down now....

But seriously, you are not using that gospel correctly.

Being a Christian does NOT mean turning a blind eye. La ti daaaa, dead babies are so sad. But murdering doctors are people tooo. Guess I'll turn my other cheek. Here, can I hold the door for you?

Remember, when asking the question "What would Jesus do?", totally freaking out and flipping over tables IS a valid response!

****Outgoing Governor Ed Rendell (D-PA) criticized Department of Health officials saying; “I was flabbergasted to learn that the Department of Health did not think their authority to protect public health extended to clinics offering abortion services”.****

Perversion of the language will have that effect; ABORTION has nothing to do with HEALTH. Calling a murderer a DOCTOR just changes revulsion to respect.

Will murders and genocide be included in Obamacare? Maybe this case will cause a change in attitude and rather than have the ‘Health Depts’ monitor abortion clinics - the local sheriffs should be assigned to close them as crime scenes.

Please forgive me for being off topic, but I'm going to consider this one of those rare and wonderful (as R.L. likes to call it) teachable moments.

Turning the other cheek.

At the time, the widely practiced Jewish canon required "An eye for an eye" type of revenge. They strongly believed every outrage should be resented and it usually led to more hatred and strife.

Matthew 5:39 is telling us that personal revenge will not bring us peace, and that we should seek for satisfaction in another way.

In other words, "Turn the other cheek." is a warning to not become the bad person that harmed you.

Also keep in mind the examples given are being struck on the cheek or having a cloak stolen from you... a far cry from murdering tiny defenseless innocent babies one after another year after year.

And IF you still feel "Turn the other cheek" applies, then it would be the dead babies that were harmed and they who could consider turning the other cheek... verses seeking revenge by stabbing the doctor in the back of the neck with a pair of sharp scissors, but of course neither is possible.

Feel free to disagree! :) I know I interjected my beliefs into the conversation and I totally understand that action may subject me to a certain amount of abuse! It won't hurt my feelings. :p

I guess there’s not enough “evidence” to remove him either. (sarc)

Just reflecting what they have been taught. To them those babies were just “things.” With a mindset like that, of course they didn’t feel bad about it. They probably enjoyed it.

It’s already gotten to that point. Some bio-ethicists are already making the argument that two/three year olds are not “fully” human, therefore they can be “after-aborted.” (killed by their parents)

We know that these deranged vermin exist and are growing in number...but what are we going to do about it?

I know EXACTLY what I'm going to do if I ever come face-to-face with one of these vermin but finding them is a bit difficult when just about everyone else is going on about their stupid trivial lives.

I seriously cannot wait to die in battle against these...things. My worst nightmare is being 80 years old, sitting in my rocking chair, and reminiscing about the time when the last drop of good vanished entirely from the world.
