You can easily tell that Kirsten Powers, Charles Krauthammer, and Jonah Golberg are disturbed and frustrated with the lack of attention paid to the murder trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortion doctor.
The fact that none of Americas major newspapers are raising dust about this shows that they are part of the conspiracy of silence and in reality have no concern for the rights of america’s citizens unless there is a buck to be made at their expense. Consider only the cost and coverage of Oprah’s overseas trip and subsequent discovery of a half sister against this discovery.
First, sit down. If you are sitting down, take a deep breath. Because all this did not happen in a slum in Phnom Penh, or Sao Paulo, or Kinshasa. It happened in the United States, in Philadelphia, the birthplace of the nation. It happened only 100 miles from the guardian of the nation’s freedoms, the New York Times.This is about a charnel house which doubled as an abortion clinic for 30 years while regulators looked the other way.
This is about politicians in one of America’s largest states who didn’t want to rock the boat. This is about a cowardly bureaucracy in a city renowned for world-class doctors and hospitals. This is about doctors who refused to report one of their own.
This is about the betrayal of poor, scared women, mostly young, mostly black or immigrant. At least two of them are dead. Many had their wombs and bowels perforated. Many were infected with venereal disease with unsterilized instruments.
This is about hundreds of infanticides in which live, viable, babies in the third trimester of pregnancy were delivered – and then murdered by snipping their spinal cords with scissors. One of them was so developed that the doctor joked, before snipping, “he could walk me to the bus stop”. It is about thousands of abortions.
“My comprehension of the English language doesn’t and cannot adequately describe the barbaric nature of Dr Gosnell and the ghoulish manner in which he ‘trained’ the unlicensed, uneducated individuals who worked there,” said the Philadelphia District Attorney, Seth Williams.
All this came to light on February 18 last year when the FBI and agents from the District Attorney’s office raided the Women’s Medical Society, on the corner of Lancaster and 38th Streets, in West Philadelphia. What they were seeking was evidence of illegal prescription drug activity by its director, Dr Kermit Gosnell. They found something far worse.
