The Culture Of Death Naked And Unmasked

01 April 2013 @ 09:40

Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

Matthew, 2:16-18

In Florida and Pennsylvania recently, we got a fleeting, but crystal clear glimpse into how the servants of The Culture Of Death think…

From The Weekly Standard, John McCormack reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to Mark Levin][worth quoting at length]:

Florida legislators considering a bill to require abortionists to provide medical care to an infant who survives an abortion were shocked during a committee hearing this week when a Planned Parenthood official endorsed a right to post-birth abortion.

Alisa LaPolt Snow, the lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, testified that her organization believes the decision to kill an infant who survives a failed abortion should be left up to the woman seeking an abortion and her abortion doctor.

"So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief," said Rep. Jim Boyd. "If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?”

"We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician," said Planned Parenthood lobbyist Snow.

Rep. Daniel Davis then asked Snow, "What happens in a situation where a baby is alive, breathing on a table, moving. What do your physicians do at that point?”

"I do not have that information," Snow replied. "I am not a physician, I am not an abortion provider. So I do not have that information.”

Rep. Jose Oliva followed up, asking the Planned Parenthood official, "You stated that a baby born alive on a table as a result of a botched abortion that that decision should be left to the doctor and the family. Is that what you’re saying?”

Again, Snow replied, “That decision should be between the patient and the health care provider.”

“I think that at that point the patient would be the child struggling on the table, wouldn’t you agree?” asked Oliva.

"That’s a very good question. I really don’t know how to answer that," Snow said. "I would be glad to have some more conversations with you about this.”

Later another representative asked Snow, “What objection could you possibly have to obligate a doctor to transport a child born alive to a hospital where it seems to me they would be most likely to be able to survive?”

Snow said Planned Parenthood was concerned about "those situations where it is in a rural health care setting, the hospital is 45 minutes or an hour away, that’s the closest trauma center or emergency room. You know there’s just some logistical issues involved that we have some concerns about.”

At the trial of late-term abortion ‘doctor’ Kermit Gosnell we recently learned [tip of the fedora to Darleen Click]:

Medical assistant Adrienne Moton admitted Tuesday that she had cut the necks of at least 10 babies after they were delivered, as Gosnell had instructed her. Gosnell and another employee regularly "snipped" the spines "to ensure fetal demise," she said.

Moton sobbed as she recalled taking a cellphone photograph of one baby because he was bigger than any she had seen aborted before. She measured the fetus at nearly 30 weeks, and thought he could have survived, given his size and pinkish color. Gosnell later joked that the baby was so big he could have walked to the bus stop, she said.

Jurors saw Moton’s photograph of the boy called "Baby A" on a large screen in the courtroom, which took on a bizarre look Tuesday as witnesses testified near a hospital bed with stirrups and other aging obstetric equipment. Denied the chance to bring jurors to the shuttered inner-city clinic, prosecutors are instead recreating a patient room in court.

The mother of "Baby A" testified later in the day, describing a painful three-day abortion process that started at Gosnell’s other clinic in Delaware. She was 17, had an infant daughter and was told by Gosnell she was 24 weeks pregnant – the legal limit in Pennsylvania, but not in neighboring Delaware, where abortions are banned after 20 weeks.

The woman said she given abortion drugs in Delaware and sent home each of the first two days, then was directed to the West Philadelphia clinic the third day to have the fetus expelled. She was in severe pain by then, pain that only worsened the following week, she said.

Her aunt had taken her to the clinic and paid the $1,300 fee, and they had not told her mother.

"I never felt pain like that, ever," the woman said. "I couldn’t talk to anybody and tell anybody."

But the teen ended up being hospitalized for two weeks with a large abscess and a blood clot near her heart. Prosecutors say she is one of countless patients injured during botched abortions or unsanitary conditions.

Moton, 35, had lived with Gosnell’s family during high school because of problems at home, then went to work for him years later. She earned about $10 an hour – off the books – to administer drugs, perform ultrasounds, help with abortions and dispose of fetal remains from 2005 to 2008.

She once had to kill a baby delivered in a toilet, cutting its neck with scissors, she said. Asked if she knew that was wrong, she said, "At first I didn’t."

Moton has pleaded guilty to third-degree murder, which carries a 20- to 40-year term, as well as conspiracy and other charges. She has been in prison since early 2011, when Philadelphia prosecutors arrested Gosnell, his third wife, Pearl, and eight other employees. Most of them have pleaded guilty and are expected to testify.

Over at CNS News, Michael Chapman filed a report on this testimony and evidence that contains more gruesome details and some very disturbing pictures [tip of the fedora to Mark Levin]. Though it will be quite upsetting, I strongly urge you to follow the link to this report because the horror must be seen – we must never turn our eyes from the Truth Of Evil.

How fitting that on the weekend when Jews celebrate the liberation of their ancestors from slavery and Christians celebrate the death and Resurrection of The Christ, we have presented to us the unadulterated and naked faces of Leftist Thought and Leftist Action. We have placed before our eyes and ears the unadorned and disrobed Nihilism of those who control all of the institutions of America and The West.

The images before us are of shriveled souls drenched in blood and reeking of death standing over the carnage of a modern Massacre Of The Innocents.

If only for this reason, we cannot make any deals or compromises with the Left. At their core, Leftists are death mongers who want to make the world one, big Atrocity Exhibition.

To those on the Right who still believe the people on the Left are decent, well-meaning people who happen to be wrong philosophically, I say: Wake up, dammit! Open your eyes and see the hideous blackness at the core of their souls; smell the foul stench of their breath as they speak their deceptions; hear the cries of those they have tortured and murdered.

All who subscribe to Leftism: you have made common cause with the Gosnells and Snows of this world. Those two are merely taking you precious Leftism to it’s logical ends. They are merely the leading high priests of The Culture Of Death; the rest of you are parishioners of their Church Of Evil. You are worshipers of misery and death. You are Anti-Life. You are servants of Evil.

    Depraved.

    That’s the only word that describes them.

    Or, cultists of Ba’al.

      I wanted to use the phrase ‘The Devil’ or ‘Satan’ or ‘Lucifer’, but this bit of fire and brimstone was also aimed – believe it or not – at the non-religious. Evil is a force that is present in the world. And whether you think of it personified or not, any sane person has to believe that it exists.

        I was merely stating my disgust as emphatically as possible.

          The ‘you’ in my comments wasn’t you, MT. My apologies for not editing myself and publishing too quickly.

    The radio preacher (Dr. C.M Ward) for the Assemblies of God was on a flight to some where and the guy sitting next to him turned to him and said “you look like an intelligent man, do you really believe there’s a devil?” His retort – “Sir, I can tell you have never been to a church business meeting.”

    These days you’d have to say they aren’t reading the papers, not that that would be a good source of info.

    I wish there were stronger language we could use. Because words like “depraved,” or “Animals,” just seem too tame. I see kids with cancer and stories like this and can only say “even so, come Lord Jesus!” How much longer can this world hold the tears of its children?
