Over the weekend ACLJ Executive Director Jordan Sekulow and I wrote a column for the Washington Post on how the horrors of the Gosnell post-birth abortion trial is exposing the illogic of abortion.
In response, the overwhelming consensus of “pro-choice” readers (aside from the irony of claiming the Washington Post now has a pro-life bias) was that Gosnell’s trial is about “medical malpractice,” not abortion and murder.
Abortionist Kermit Gosnell is charged with capital murder for the horrific slaying of seven newborn infants in his abortion clinic. That’s right; he is on trial for infanticide, yet the radical Left says this is merely a case of “malpractice.”
One radical leftist summed it up this way: “The issue has nothing to do with abortion. It is malpractice as several comments have pointed out.”
That’s not pro-choice or even pro-abortion; that’s pro-infanticide. To them the real travesty of the Gosnell case is that he botched the abortion such that the baby was born-alive.
This is the pro-abortion agenda. Their mantra continues to be abortion, on demand, even after birth, and without apology. It’s sick.
The horrors of the Gosnell trial and the “pro-choice” extremists’ response is exposing abortion for what it is. As we explained in our column:
In what can only be described as a “house of horrors,” abortion provider Kermit Gosnell stands trial in Philadelphia, charged with the grotesque murder of at least seven infants, allegedly born alive after botched abortions only to be brutally killed moments later.
As this nearly month-long trial continues, it paints the stark and unmistakably abhorrent reality of abortion. While the national mainstream media has been all but silent about this trial, the headlines coming from local media coverage have been morbidly graphic. Babies born alive and then allegedly killed in truly barbaric ways.
The details emerging from this trial are too graphic for us to even put into words, yet our society allows this same unspeakable torture of another human being to occur just so long as the baby is still inside the womb.
The Gosnell trial in conjunction with a Planned Parenthood lobbyist’s recent admission that the abortion giant has no issue with this life-ending practice is lifting the veil of secrecy from an industry long shrouded from public scrutiny.
As explained in more detail here , the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals recently, but only preliminarily, upheld a California law requiring faith-based, pro-life pregnancy centers to tell their clients upfront that might be able to have a free abortion elsewhere. One doesn’t have to think long and...
A chasm has formed. Deep. Dark. Wide. Death is surely imminent if anyone dare attempt to brave a crossing. I speak of course of America’s political landscape as the presidential election closes in upon us. Women’s rights seem to be the hinge point – for reasons no one need explain. But it is indeed...
“100 years strong.” That is what Planned Parenthood and its allies were chanting this weekend on the 100th anniversary of the abortion giant’s founding. Even President Obama tweeted his support. For a century, Planned Parenthood has made it possible for women to determine their own lives. Here's to...
A recent federal court hearing highlighted the importance of protecting the First Amendment rights of investigative journalists – in this instance, individuals exposing illegal and unethical acts of abortion providers and fetal tissue procurement companies and researchers – as well as the public’s...
