The Atrocity Exhibition
From John Hayward, via Stacy McCain, we learn:
Fox News reports a horrifying case in Philadelphia, about a doctor who murdered “minorities, immigrants, and the poor” with scissors for profit. He’s been doing it for thirty years, and raked in millions of dollars. His lair is described by authorities as a “house of horrors,” filled with “bags and bottles” holding the corpses of his victims. Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams says “there were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet he kept for no medical purpose.”
Incredibly, the authorities ignored numerous complaints about this doctor’s bizarre behavior and criminal medical practices. His clinic hasn’t been inspected since 1993, despite ten malpractice suits filed against him, one of which included a fatality.
Sounds like an astonishing stop-the-presses story, right? One detail I left out: Dr. Kermit Gosnell is an abortion doctor. He’s charged with eight counts of murder – one mother and seven illegally “aborted” live babies.
This is just another glimpse into practices of Leftists in America. Here is ‘choice’ in action. All of the talk about ‘a woman’s right to choose’ has brought us Kermit Gosnell and his factory of death, his murder emporium.
Stacy McCain has published a very good aggregation of links to this story and how ‘Dr. Gosnell is not a random point off on the edge of the scatter-chart’. Groups like Planned Parenthood advocate and condone the murder of viable babies, most especially in their efforts to make late-term abortions legal.
All this should reveal the intellectual dishonesty and moral vacuousness of acting as if the line between “a woman’s choice” and “infanticide” is located somewhere around the cervix. Those who are willing to see a human life as less than valuable because it is “inconvenient” or lacking a y-chromosome are more than happy to end that life, location be damned. These are not “isolated incidents” but are part and parcel of the abortion mentality. Those tiny babies that Kermit Gosnell killed look, feel, think, and emote exactly like the tiny babies in the womb that he killed every single day — because they are the same, and the only difference is whether the baby relies on its mother for oxygen and sustenance or needs a neonatal unit for it.
The Leftist has no respect or concern with individual human life. It does not play a part in the sterile laboratories of their minds where they grow the fetid cultures that are their utopian ideas. Human beings don’t follow rigid plans or rules in the way they live and act, therefore, the Leftist has no interest in them — ideas are all that matter to the Enlightened Progressive. Every revolution has been based on this thinking and every revolution has brought about mass-murder at the hands of the revolution’s zealots in the name of the new ‘people’s’ state.
For the past one hundred years there has been a stealth revolution occurring in America and one of the fallouts of this silent and insidious upheaval has been the deaths of millions of babies.
Sadly, in The United States Leftism is alive and well, unlike the children which Kermit Gosnell murdered in his little shop of horrors.
