This month the world was introduced to a true “house of horrors” – the clinic of Doctor Kermit Gosnell.
From the Washington Times -
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — An abortion doctor who catered to minorities, immigrants and poor women was charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors, prosecutors said Wednesday.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, made millions of dollars over 30 years, performing as many illegal, late-term abortions as he could, prosecutors said. State regulators ignored complaints about him and failed to visit or inspect his clinic since 1993, but no charges were warranted against them, District Attorney Seth Williams said.
Dr. Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord,” Mr. Williams said.
Although this monster routinely delivered babies before stabbing them to death, left-wing journalists and activists have rushed to explain that these abortion atrocities ignored for four decades by abortion radicals and rationalizers are not really about abortion. A Time magazine writer argued that the Philadelphia Horror was ‘about poverty, not Roe v. Wade.’ A University of Minnesota professor declared: ‘This is not about abortion.’
Unfortunately, this is the reality of abortion. Although this doctor was particularly sinister, was the gruesome process performed by Dr. Gosnell that different than any other abortion? The reason Dr. Gosnell is facing charges is due to the time and position of the baby more than the act of murder. If it were a few weeks younger and not completely born, it would be perfectly acceptable for Dr. Gosnell to dismember these babies using a variety of awful suction and scraping techniques.
Perhaps exposing this “house of horrors” will break through “political correctness” and open people’s eyes to the fact that we, as a nation, have killed over 50 million of our children since Roe vs. Wade.
Patheos.com states this clearly-
After all, Margaret Sanger — the poster girl for pro-choice advocates in America — was all about making sure that certain races and certain classes of people were discouraged from reproducing. But you’re not supposed to know that, or at least you’re not supposed to acknowledge that. To do so would be as rude as forcing people to consider that the only way to prevent a pregnancy from advancing to new life is to “stop” it unnaturally, or to note that “stopping” is just a euphemism for “killing.” Because that’s the only way to stop new life from flourishing: by killing it.
But it’s rude to mention that. It is also rude (and “shrill”) to mention in polite company that the method of killing the new life involves reaching deep within a woman’s body with unnatural instrumentation and either sucking the baby, bit-by-bit, through a vacuum tube into a jar, or scraping it out of her, limb-by-limb.
And it is beyond rude to suggest to true-believers (many of whom are enthusiastic students of social and psychological theory) that the violent death-and-dismemberment being performed within a woman’s womb — deep inside her body — may produce both physical repercussions on her body, and psychological repercussions within society.
Jeffrey T. Kuhner of The Washington Times calls it like it is when he declares that “America has death camps”.
America has death camps. This is the heinous reality liberal elites have been trying to conceal. A Philadelphia abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell, was arrested Wednesday along with his wife and eight other suspects. The 69-year-old abortionist is charged with causing the death of a woman during a botched abortion and also killing seven babies. Prosecutors say the infants were born alive following illegal late-term abortions and then were murdered by having their spinal cords ripped apart with scissors.
Dr. Gosnell‘s abortion clinic is a house of horrors – akin to those in Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia. Police authorities say that following a raid on his office, they found numerous bags and bottles containing aborted fetuses. They also allege that they found jars on a shelf containing the severed feet of babies.
Philadelphia’s CBS News reports that “Gosnell is suspected of killing hundreds of living babies over the course of his 30-year practice.” If true, Dr. Gosnell is not only a baby killer but a mass murderer – the Josef Mengele of our time.
Yet this is not an isolated incident. In fact, it is only the tip of the abortion iceberg. The media is deliberately downplaying the story for one simple reason: There are hundreds of similar abortion clinics across the country. Exposing what takes place in facilities run by the likes of Dr. Gosnell would shock voters into taking decisive action to make abortion illegal. This is why the killing of innocent unborn children is done largely away from public view. It is a creeping, hidden genocide that can continue only if the fiction of abortion being a “medical procedure” is maintained.
It isn’t. Abortion is the deliberate, systematic slaughter of babies in the womb. It is state-sanctioned infanticide. It encodes in law the pernicious principle that there is an entire category of people – the unborn – who are less than fully human. Their lives are subject to the whims of their masters. Most societies in history have been based on the oppression of an entire class; the strong dominate the weak. The law of the jungle trumps moral decency.
