Non-partial-birth abortions just as horrific as Gosnell's

Non-partial-birth abortions just as horrific as Gosnell's

Elephant-womb_550x307So long as the horrors of murder (especially including the sights and sounds of bone and flesh being broken and torn apart) remain inside the Roe and Casey-protected womb, outside courtrooms and un-covered by most media outlets, abortion-on-demand as birth control is safe from the kind of morally righteous indignation that coverage of the Kermit Gosnell murder trial would naturally evoke. Ditto for the barbaric American society it wrought.

Liberal Democrats must hate science and technology, and must be protected from it, and not just as relates to the hoax of man-made global warming to cover their anti-capitalism, i.e. anti-individual liberty, agenda.

What if Johnny Carson’s tree falls in the forest or a murder trial is held in Philadelphia and NBC cameras fail to capture their respective sights and sounds? For all but the abortion “doctor’s” murder victims; and squirrels and avian occupants of and creepy crawly things upon which said tree falls, did either event take place:

In Philadelphia, a doctor is on trial for the gruesome murders of eight people inside his low-rent office. A former assistant testified that she personally witnessed the physician commit at least 30 murders. Most of the patients were “beheaded,” another assistant said, adding that there was “blood all over the place.” If you have not heard of this doctor’s trial for committing a terrifying, decades-long string of serial killings, there is a reason. He is an abortionist.

His name is Kermit Gosnell. He was arrested after a 2010 FBI raid at his offices, which were described this way in the grand jury report: “There was blood on the floor. A stench of urine filled the air. A flea-infested cat was wandering through the facility, and there were cat feces on the stairs.”

The sensational nature of this case alone justifies massive media coverage. The doctor ran a filthy, uninspected clinic for decades as state regulators looked the other way. He infected women with diseases by using unsterile equipment. Two of the women who came to him for abortions died. But Kermit Gosnell is not a household name for one reason: His crimes raise uncomfortable questions for supporters of unlimited abortion on demand.

Remember the mental gymnastics of the post-Roe v Wade (1973) 70s and 80s when Ivy Leaguers and their ilk, taking their cue from Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun’s three-trimester-state-interest vs. a woman’s-right-to-abortion-privacy test, regularly declared the tautology of life beginning at fertilization as false and speculated about what exactly was that formless glob (with no right to life for at least 24 months after said fertilization and concomitant uniquely-resulting DNA) growing ever larger inside the bodies of female right-to-choosers?

Remember the post-Casey v. Planned Parenthood (1992) end of the tenuous third-trimester safety for babies, lest the “health of the mother” as she contemplates the difficulty of making the Pampers, in addition to the BMW, payments; and the re-introduction of back alley-abortion (the horror that legalized abortion was supposed to save us from) scissors into the skulls of 8 month-old fetuses whose legs and parts of their torso have already felt the atmosphere of planet Earth?

Remember when technology advanced to produce photos of animals (see above) and human babies inside the womb and the post-Roe Generation X-ers, thankful to have survived their own mothers’ right to choose, vexed pollsters that assumed gay marriage and snuffing out the unseen were equally popular?

Remember when the public finally found out what was partial birth abortion and yet watched President Bill Clinton veto legislation outlawing same?

Remember when the Democratic Party nominated for (and the American people twice elected as) President of the United States a man who, as a state senator in the Land of Lincoln, opposed legislation requiring the Dr. Gosnells of the world to refrain from killing babies that escape the womb despite their best efforts to kill them legally while at least one hair remained plastered by placenta within the vaginal wall.

Liberals, most of whom have been firmly ensconced in the Democratic Party for at least the past 30-40 years, generally reject the Judeo-Christian concept of original sin and its moral absolutes; and, instead believe in the inevitable “progress” of mankind despite 5000 years of written evidence to the contrary. They deem abortion to be “progress”, and yet even many of them either react in horror or cower in silence when the “stuff” of the Pandora’s Box they successfully urged seven lawyers in black robes to open in 1973, manages to be seen in the full truth light of day.

My friends, bones crunch inside the womb as well outside the womb.

American women, many of whom were aided and abetted by American men, have engaged in 50 million such inside-the-womb bone-crushings since 1973, that are just as horrific as those perpetrated by abortionist “Doctor” Gosnell in the City of Brotherly Love. When a majority of Americans begin to understand that fact and demands that Presidents appoint and that the U.S. Senate advise and consent only to those Supreme Court justices that will reverse Roe and Casey; or that super majorities of the House, Senate and state legislatures amend the constitution to protect all life based upon the biological fact of its existence, then and only then will America have  a chance to once again be a Shining City on a Hill.

So long as a majority are only horrified when the sound of a tiny severed limb striking the floor, as a result of a  late-term abortion, is within earshot, we remain no more “progressive” than the virgin-sacrificing pagans the Hebrews confronted in Canaan or the Romans that fed Christians to lions in the Coliseum.

If, like me, you have been a party to an abortion in your past, you will need to muster the courage to repent of your sin and forgive those committed by others. Join me, and lets not indulge in self-delusion via selective horror.

“One man with courage makes a majority.” – Andrew Jackson
