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?

    Almost without exception, most farms are protected to some degree by guard animals. Dogs and cats are most commonly used to defend against intruders and nuisance pests around the farmstead. In recent years with the proliferation of coyotes, many folks are using guard donkeys or llamas to protect their livestock.

    In recent years I’ve written quite a bit about the introduction and negative consequences of non-native or invasive species. Fire ants, killer bees, English sparrows, Asian carp, feral hogs and others too numerous to list have forever changed our local ecosystem.
