The Barbaric Nature of Dr. Gosnell

Hate Speech

We are compelled to raise protest against Reuters, for actually daring to publish the following diatribe of hate speech against a good doctor and his staff.

Philadelphia abortion doctor charged with murder
11:38am EST
PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) – An abortion doctor killed hundreds of babies by cutting their spinal cords with scissors after removing them from mothers late in their pregnancies, prosecutors said on Wednesday
Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams charged Dr. Kermitt Gosnell, 69, and nine associates with eight counts of murder, following a year-long investigation by a grand jury, whose report was unveiled on Wednesday. The defendants are charged with first-degree murder in the cases of seven babies for which there is substantial evidence, Williams said.

Hundreds of other babies are likely to have died in Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic, which he operated from 1979 to 2010, Williams said. A third-degree murder charge stemmed from the death of a mother who died from an overdose of anesthetics, he said.

“My comprehension of the English language can’t adequately describe the barbaric nature of Dr. Gosnell,” Williams said at a news conference. . . . He said Gosnell’s clients, many of whom were poor, were charged $325 for a first-trimester abortion and between $1,625 and $3,000 for an illegal abortion after 24 weeks.

High fives to DA Seth Williams, his staff and the grand jury.  But, Reuters is way over the top–unfair, unbalanced, and obviously very afraid.  Why did they not include the obligatory reference to “women’s rights” and “freedom to choose”.  Why did they not get a tame quotation from the National Council of Women that the doctor and his staff were merely carrying out the law and should be regarded as true civil rights heroes because they were defending and helping women exercise their rights.  What about the totally predictable line that unless society encourages and equips people like Dr Gosnell there will be more “back street abortions” and more women dying?  What happened to that?  A great opportunity has been missed here.

But it is early days.  As the trial commences and progresses we predict that Dr Gosnell will be hailed as a Great American Hero by the pro-abortionists–and sophisticate ladies such as those on The View will be excoriating the nation for its barbarity in not providing more funding for heroes like Gosnell so that they would not be reduced to doing their noble work with such barbaric instruments as scissors.  Yuk.  Let’s get sophisticated.  It’s the twenty-first century.  Surely the “things” could be put in a modern, upmarket, scientific termination chamber that would do its work untouched by human hands.  The Government has failed the Gosnell’s of the world–and now it is persecuting them.. . .

Sarcasm aside, we are yet thankful that even in a country such as the United States which has become so corrupted that its highest court could rule that abortion is a constitutional right, the full weight of the law can still fall upon abortionists who do not keep strictly within the bounds of even that corrupt legalism.  We also understand that the tide of public opinion appears to be turning against abortion.  Whilst we believe that such things should never be determined in the court of public opinion, we are thankful nonetheless.  Hopefully as the trial progresses the connection between abortion and murder will be ever more strongly drawn in the public consciousness.  And, oh yes, high fives to Reuters as well.
