The Kermit Gosnell trial is going on in Pennsylvania. You’ll be forgiven if you didn’t see any coverage of it on the evening news. The famous Clinton formulation of keeping abortion “safe, legal and rare” is two-thirds lies. Legal is the only important one which is why Gosnell was able to run his house of horrors for so long.
And don’t think the media isn’t complicit in this . My senior project for my degree in journalism nearly 20 years ago was a study on how the Los Angeles Times routinely shaded their coverage of the abortion issue to the “abortion rights” side.
In an Associated Press story on the Gosnell trial we see just how far this groupthink has led American society from seeing the evil right in front of its eyes.
Moton, 35, had lived with Gosnell’s family during high school because of problems at home, then went to work for him years later. She earned about $10 an hour , off the books , to administer drugs, perform ultrasounds, help with abortions and dispose of fetal remains from 2005 to 2008.
She once had to kill a baby delivered in a toilet, cutting its neck with scissors, she said. Asked if she knew that was wrong, she said, "At first I didn’t."
Abortions are typically performed in utero.
Seriously? Yes, abortions are typically performed in utero (or if it’s an ectopic pregnancy in the fallopian tube) because when you kill a baby outside the womb we have a couple different words for it: infanticide, murder, homicide.
For the record: This is what is known as the Obama position on abortion. An abortion always results in a death. Even if the now-baby is somehow delivered alive, is living and breathing on its own, if the mother wanted it dead, it should die.
I hold out hope that eventually our society—and every society—will come to realize the moral depravity and horror that is abortion. Just don’t expect the media to champion this civil rights issue.
