Lack of publicity in abortion doctor’s trial

Lack of publicity in abortion doctor’s trial

Dear Editor,

Haven’t heard of Kermit Gosnell? Given the media cover-up, that’s not surprising. In today’s society it is not often realized that the media is selective in the news they broadcast. Such is the case with the lack of publicity of the murder trial of late-term abortion clinic owner, Kermit Gosnell, in Philadelphia.

Presently, “Dr.” Gosnell is on trial for the murder of a 41-year-old woman and several babies.

Interestingly enough, this headliner story has been hushed. Unspeakable horrors of toilets clogged with baby body parts and freezers containing babies in jars are the testified facts of this case. In this clinic thousands of babies were slaughtered. Gosnell is infamous for his “snipping” of baby’s spinal cords immediately after being born alive and then suctioning the brain. The employees of this clinic often did the same “snipping” procedure when the doctor was not present. Though they visibly saw the babies breathing, moving, and crying, they were told the babies weren’t alive; it was just a reaction.

This clinic, Women’s Medical Society in Philadelphia, did not make its tremendous profit because of its concern for women’s health. It was strictly a business of profit, with a policy of “labor without labor.” The bigger the baby, the more Gosnell charged. The clinic’s business was allowed to continue because of the silence of many public officials who have the authorization to bring an end to the illegal abortions taking place. President Obama is known for his seemingly comforting words, when tragedy strikes America, especially tragedy concerning young children.

Of course, Obama would not want to offend Planned Parenthood, which contributed fifteen million dollars to his re-election campaign last year, as well as the millions of future dollars that will pour into Democrats’ coffers. The news networks have seemed to ignore the President’s disinterest in this pivotal trial. Many people are unaware of the trial entirely. The theory of abortion revolves around the belief that life does not begin at conception, despite the fact that a heartbeat appears only eighteen days into the pregnancy. Is a heartbeat no longer a sign of life in a living human being?

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: I have been corrected

    I was complaining about President Obama making promises that he has not kept, such as taxes will not go up one dime or health care will go down about $2,500 per year for a family of four. He said he would cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. He said he would have an immigration plan in place. What he really meant was that if Congress would allow it, we would have open borders.

  • larry jones cropped:color NOW HEAR THIS: Taking care of your tools

    For much of my life I’ve heard the saying, “Take care of your tools, and your tools will take care of you.”  In our modern “throw away world” this has become much less important than it used to be, but down on the “pore farm,” tools still enjoy a prominent position in my daily life.

  • PASTOR POPHIN: The greatest joy of all: Jesus

    The first part of this week was a joyous one for me. I took 10 youth to Lake Mineral Wells State Park for three days of day camping. Camp Adventure was the name of the camp. We discovered the joy of the One who created us: Jesus. I am sitting at my desk on the day after the camp writing this article. I am overjoyed by the events of the week, and yet I am physically exhausted. The Lord moved powerfully among our youth.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Now is the time for all good men...

    When man’s greed, desire for riches, power and control of our nation become greater than their love of humanity and our country, by constantly fomenting discord and hate among the citizens, warmongering and constantly talking of wars against other nations - it is putting political ideology before the welfare of citizens and country. It is time for We the People to take a good look at these men involved - no matter their status in our nation, we call the United States of America and decide whether or not they deserve the privilege and sanctuary of our nation.

  • tiscione, lou.jpg TISCIONE: Finding a church

    God commands His people to “keep holy the Sabbath Day.” The “Sabbath Day” was changed by the apostolic church to the first day, Sunday. The church refers to every Sunday as the Lord’s Day. Each Lord’s Day is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Therefore, a professing Christian will seek to find a local church in which to invest in the kingdom and worship the King!

  • John Paul Carter-color.jpg NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY: What’s your current address?

    Shortly after we moved to Weatherford 19 years ago, the old post office (today’s Court Building) that was literally bursting at the seams was replaced by a new, larger facility – our present mail center that sometimes seems outgrown as we stand in line to buy stamps or mail a package.

  • PASTOR POPHIN: The joy of unity in church

    Do you enjoy going to church? I mean, do you really enjoy going to church? No matter how you answer, there are some common reasons — or perhaps we would call them conditions — that would cause all of us to truly enjoy going to church.
