Hey newspapers, I thought you said “If it bleeds it leads.” You’ve got a doctor in Philadelphia who is beheading babies and there’s “blood all over the place.”
Dr. Kermit Gosnell is on trial for conducting third trimester abortions which is an illegal process so gruesome it often involves the dictionary definition of murder. About the only non-local news sources writing about the story are conservative sites such as Hot Air and National Review. Here are some lowlights from the case…
FROM HOT AIR…
“I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien,” West said, telling the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas judge and jury that the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at the Women’s Medical Society clinic…
West said the baby’s eyes and mouth were not yet completely formed and it was lying on a glass tray on a shelf and she told the co-worker to call Gosnell and fled the room…
Stephen Massof described how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it, “literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body.” He testified that at times, when women were given medicine to speed up their deliveries, “it would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place.”–
A second Delaware woman, who worked at Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s West Philadelphia abortion clinic, testified today that it was “standard procedure” to snip the necks of any babies that were delivered by patients before the abortion due to labor-inducing drugs.
And Lynda Williams, 44, of Wilmington, said Gosnell taught her how to flip the body of the baby over and snip its neck with a pair of scissors to ensure “fetal demise.”
Williams also testified that she followed Gosnell’s orders one time, when Gosnell was away either running, swimming or working at a clinic in Delaware, and took a baby that was delivered in a toilet and snipped its neck.
“It jumped, the arm,” she said, showing the jury by raising her arm.
Williams told investigators she only snipped a neck the one time, “because it gave me the creeps.”
Update: This is a few months old, but the 3801 Lancaster Project made this documentary of the case that’s worth a watch. There may be more coming, too.
Caution: Some disturbing images included, as you may well imagine.
She also told of seeing at least five aborted babies moving, breathing and, in one case, “screeching,” after procedures at Gosnells’ Women’s Medical Society clinic at 3801 Lancaster Ave.
“They looked just like regular babies,” Baldwin said to Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore.
Baldwin said one baby she saw was so big that Gosnell joked that “this baby is going to walk me home.”
FROM NATIONAL REVIEW…
This procedure, sometimes called a “live-birth abortion,” is illegal. But not thanks to President Obama. As a state legislator in Illinois, he argued that the law should offer no protection to neonates if they had been delivered before viability. He said that protecting them would violateRoe v. Wade and undermine the right to abortion. What looked like infanticide to most people was for him, it must be inferred, a “private family matter.” When Gosnell applied his scissors to pre-viable children, he was, on Obama’s terms, merely exercising a cherished freedom.
Concluding his statement, President Obama said, “I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.” Let us commit ourselves to ensuring that our sons and daughters have the opportunity to live; an opportunity cruelly snatched away from more than 50 million human beings since the day the president commemorated.
BACK TO ME…
There’s a misconception that abortion is ultimately good for us because, outside of the part where it’s about freedom (or choice or something) it’s also a great way to rid the world of all these useless fucking crack babies. That’s what this crazy bitch seems to be getting at. She actually brings up a bigger question. If you’re so in favor of something, why can’t you stomach looking at it? Why can’t you even Google image it?
Truth is, PLENTY of abortions are done by women who find the idea of another child to be an inconvenience. As a 2008 NBC story pointed out, “Half of the roughly 1.2 million U.S. women who have abortions each year are 25 or older. Only about 17 percent are teens.” In 2011, a Slate reported discovered, “a whopping 72 percent of NAF clients looking to terminate a pregnancy were already mothers” and adds, “public perceptions of who aborts and why are skewed mostly as a result of all the political heat around late-term abortions and adolescent abortions (minors have only 7 percent of all abortions).”
So, what’s the solution? Take the morning after pill if some idiot cums in you. That’s part of a rape kit too so don’t give me that horse shit about a father raping his daughter. If you’re too stupid to notice that you’re pregnant by the time you get to third term, you have to keep it. It’s not your right to behead a child because you consider it inconvenient to do otherwise. It’s called “adoption.” About half the women in this country are pro life. I’m not sure how supporting them became another example of the “war on women.”
