Abortion Mills Must Be StoppedPosted by TM Snyder on June 1, 2013
If you thought the arrest, prosecution and conviction of Dr. Kermit Gosnell was the end of this type of ongoing behavior and activity, think again. The practices and conditions of Gosnell‘s Philadelphia abortion mill have caused even abortion activists and “pro-choice” media to condemn Gosnell as a “monster” and a criminal, both of which he is. However, the biggest players in the abortion industry, Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation, have admitted to knowing about Gosnell‘s practices and the manner in which abortions were being performed and did nothing to stop it. They did not complain, nor did they report Gosnell to authorities at any point. In fact, up until his arrest, Gosnell performed multiple abortions at the Atlantic Women’s Medical Services in Wilmington, Delaware, a facility that is a member of the National Abortion Federation (NAF) and inspected and certified by the NAF. Many of the illegal late-term abortions Gosnell performed began at the NAF Delaware “clinic” and were then transferred to his Philadelphia location for completion.
On May 13, a jury (that included nine jurors who reportedly identified themselves as “pro-choice”) pronounced Gosnell guilty of three counts of first-degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter, as well 21 counts of performing illegal late-term abortions, and more than 200 other lesser charges.
Abortionist Kermit Gosnell‘s murder trial will force many people to grapple with the fact that our abortion laws and policies have established arbitrary and irrational criteria that provide for the wholesale killing of an entire class of live human beings based simply on age and location. The real issue, which the abortion promoters and their media accomplices have been eager to obscure, is the crime of abortion itself.
“Dr. Gosnell is only the front man, and the real trial has only just begun. The defendant is the abortion license in America,” says Robert P. George, a Princeton law professor and pro-life advocate. After the Gosnell trial, says George, “it will no longer be possible to pretend that abortion and infanticide are radically different acts or practices.” Rep. Chris Smith (R–N.J.), co-chairman of the House Bipartisan Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, said that “not much” difference exists between Gosnell’s “House of Horrors” and abortion clinics around the country. “Some abortionists may have cleaner sheets than Gosnell, and better sterilized equipment and better trained accomplices, but what they do, what Gosnell did, kill babies and hurt women is the same,” Rep. Smith said in a May 13 statement.
Some 55 million babies have been killed through abortion since the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision legalizing it 40 years ago.
We undoubtedly will now hear from other abortionists like Planned Parenthood how Gosnell is the exception and that he is not an accurate representative of the abortion industry. The highly paid pro-abortion public relations professionals will tell us how Gosnell proves that we need greater access for women to safe abortion.
But Gosnell is the exemplar of those in the industry who place no value on any human being prior to birth, or clearly after birth. He is not the exception, every abortion kills a human being, period.
Regulating abortion mills or the act of abortion will not solve this terror against the innocent. Abortion is a filthy business, and shiny clean abortion chambers do nothing to change the grievous crime to the most innocent form of life.
Abortion cannot be regulated. It simply must be eliminated.
