With so much attention focused (justifiably, we might add) on the Internal Revenue Service mega-scandal and the ongoing Benghazi debacle, it’s not surprising to learn that the murder trial of Philadelphia baby killer Kermit Gosnell is getting the short shrift.
That’s understandable … but unfortunate.
This website belatedly addressed the Gosnell saga via this post – one of the more harrowing things we’ve ever written. Basically, Gosnell performed thousands of illegal late term abortions at his unsanitary shop of horrors in West Philly – often plunging scissors into the necks of living, viable babies and cutting their spinal cords, a process he referred to as “ensuring fetal demise.”
Gosnell, 72, was convicted on three counts of first degree murder this week – each related to an infant he killed in this manner. He was found not guilty in the murder of another baby, despite the fact witnesses saw him walk into a room with the crying child and then walk out with the dead infant – which had the telltale neck wound.
In addition to these charges – which carry the death penalty – Gosnell is facing more than 200 other charges including a third-degree murder charge of a woman who died during a botched abortion.
Despite repeated warnings of the atrocities taking place inside his clinic Gosnell was never scrutinized by state or federal authorities for his murderous activities … instead it was an oxycodone raid that led to the exposure of his gruesome practice.
“Pennsylvania is not a third-world country,” the grand jury that indicted Gosnell noted. “There were several oversight agencies that stumbled upon and should have shut down Kermit Gosnell long ago. But none of them did.”
Indeed … which is why Gosnell was able to go about his murderous business for more than three decades.
A separate jury will decide whether Gosnell will die for his crimes, but we think it’s painfully obvious what justice demands in this case.
Meanwhile Gosnell’s case has prompted this website – which has previously weighed in against gruesome “after birth” abortions – to recommit ourselves to more aggressively advancing our pro-life position.
