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?

Gosnell’s attorney stated that just because it moves, that doesn’t prove it’s alive. Regardless of the devastating testimonies of “botched” abortion victims, abortion is considered a woman’s right. The numerous stories of survivors of “botched” abortions, who were meant to be killed, gives living proof that they were in fact alive? We’ve become a culture of death; Gosnell is only on trial because he didn’t perform his butchery in the womb like the neat and tidy Tiller did in Kansas. After five weeks of testimonies describing Gosnell’s actions of slicing through the spinal cords of babies, Gosnell’s attorney quickly rested his case without the calling of witnesses to stand in his defense.

As horrific and shocking the testimonies of Gosnell’s house of horrors are, America needs to realize these are common occurrences in the abortion industry throughout America and the rest of the world. The story of Gosnell is one of many of its kind and unique in only that it has been minimally publicized, compared to the others that gain no publicity at all. When there is a bombing or mass killing you naturally see it published on the news. What if Gosnell had used an AR-15 to kill thousand of children in his abortion clinic? The retellings of such events appear to be truthful and unbiased.

What would change if, periodically, people stopped to question the very nature of the liberal news channels? If in fact the media tells the truth, it however does not tell the whole truth, it is selective. The cold hard fact is that to be pro-choice is to be pro-Gosnell.

Alternate media sources have pierced the veil of mainstream propaganda that continually protects Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry’s disgusting profits. As a 16-year-old girl, I find it reprehensible that American society promotes sexual promiscuity and is willing to kill babies to remove the consequences of their propaganda.
