This Whole thing makes me weep and mourn the loss of our humanity.
I want to be perfectly clear. I am pro choice , however ,I am not pro murder at the whim of an irresponsible , self absorbed monster who has no respect for life. Abortion is not birth control, it is to be used in dire circumstances under conditions and terms of the law which are violated by people such as this.
While I am a firm believer that a woman has the right to choose that does not give any person the right to do anything as heinous as this. I would never personally choose abortion as I feel I could not live with that choice personally. However, I do not believe that I have the right to choose for another as is the case in rape and incest victims. To condemn a woman to carry out the pregnancy which was the result of an attack is cruel and unusual punishment making that woman a victim twice. I do not believe that anyone has the right to impose that on another human being. We must each make our choices and live with their consequences and the part we played in it.
Those calling for abortion to be illegal because no one has the right to go through with an abortion would take a step back and judge not lest you be judged. When society does a better job at taking care of all the unwanted children that we already have and no one even gives a second thought to . When instead of condemning a young girl who has made a mistake, she is taken in and counseled and nurtured then perhaps society can have a say . But not until then. For you to pass judgment then you must first walk a mile in their shoes. Some out there have absolutely no idea what other less fortunate human beings have to live through. Until you do , you don’t get a say in what they need to do to live it. Unless you are planning to step in and help!
That being said, those of you who have waited till you are 7months pregnant to go through with an abortion should be put in jail. You had 7 months to think about it , to allow that child to grow inside your body , to feel it move inside you and you still believe it is something that needs to be removed and thrown out like so much garbage?
At 7 months it is not only ILLEGAL to perform an abortion it is IMMORAL and REPREHENSIBLE.
How dare you?
How dare anyone think that they have the right to take a life in this manner and walk away with no consequences. You had the opportunity to use birth control and opted out or it failed (it happens). But you also had ample time to understand what needed to be done if you truly cannot have that child.
What were you doing in those 7 months that was so important that you could not do the responsible thing?
What in the world could have been so important?
To those performing the abortion what kind of uncaring unfeeling monster are you to take a child that is alive , breathing and completely helpless and do something like this?
To treat that small baby like it did not matter.
Dear God and we wonder why we are in the situation we are in?
Only an unfeeling uncaring Monster with no heart could do something like this and feel no remorse……
I like to believe that there is good in all people and it is stories like this that make me think I am so very wrong. There is so much apathy and disregard for life in this society. One life not as worthy as the next depending on who you are and what level of society you come from. Self righteous screamers and utterances of curses and punishments who are at the ready to point out the faults of others but are blinded to their own lack of faith in what is expected of them. When we are taught to love our neighbors as we love ourselves , it did not say unless they are poor, raped,imperfect,or sinners. It is not your job to judge , it is your job to be there to help pick up the pieces and make this world a better place. Last I checked pointing fingers and yelling insults did not make the world a better place.
Laws are in place and they need to be enforced. Why are they not being enforced? These are crimes as real as the ones committed at the Boston Marathon.
Why are law enforcement and FBI not all over this?
This is a hypocritical issue everyone pulling in their respective direction and no one really addressing the problems that bring it about. A little more love and care and a lot less accusations and judgement would go a very long way in that respect…….
(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) took to the House floor on Wednesday, condemning the late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell, saying, “May God forgive us.”
Black also blasted President Barack Obama for not speaking out against the “house of horrors” abortion clinic run by Gosnell, who would sever the spinal cords of babies with scissors after they had survived late-term abortion procedures.
“Mr. Speaker, I stand here today outraged and deeply saddened by the heartbreaking story of the abortion Doctor Kermit Gosnell,” said Black. “This is the man currently on trial for the murder of eight people, seven of which were newborns who were killed after surviving late-term botched abortions in his house of horrors clinic.”
“But Gosnell didn’t act alone,” she said. “He had a host of silent co-conspirators who referred women to his practice knowing full well of the horrors that went on behind those closed doors. And, meanwhile, the State boards gave Gosnell a free pass for 17 years by failing to inspect his clinic.”
Gosnell, 72, is currently on trial for the murder of four babies born alive and a mother, who overdosed at his clinic the Women’s Medical Society in West Philadelphia. Gosnell was originally charged with seven counts of first-degree murder, but Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart dropped three of the charges onWednesday, apparently concluding that the prosecution did not present enough evidence that the babies in those cases were “not viable,” or born alive.
Gosnell is also facing charges of infanticide, conspiracy, abortion at 24 or more weeks, theft, corruption of minors, solicitation and other related offenses. The six-week long trial is set to conclude on Monday, with closing arguments after Gosnell’s defense rested on Wednesday, without offering any witnesses. Gosnell did not take the stand.
Rep. Black also condemned President Obama for not speaking out against Gosnell who, according to the grand jury in the case, had killed “hundreds” of babies over the years by snipping their spinal cords.
“When asked about Gosnell’s crime, our president tells us he has no comment,” Black said. “Where is your outrage, Mr. President?”
Gosnell Trial Witness: Baby Abortion Survivor Was ‘Swimming’ in Toilet ‘Trying to Get Out’
(CNSNews.com) – On the last day of testimony before the prosecution rests in the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, a former worker at Gosnell’s clinic testified that she saw one late-term baby who survived an abortion “swimming” in a toilet and “trying to get out.”
Kareema Cross, a “medical assistant” who worked at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic for four-and-a-half years, testified in a Philadelphia court today, telling of the horrors of babies who survived abortions only to have their necks snipped with scissors.
“Did you ever see those babies move?” asked Prosecutor Joanne Pescatore.
“Yes, once in the toilet,” said Cross.
The baby “was like swimming,” she said. “Basically, trying to get out.”
Adrienne Moton, an employee at the clinic, then took the baby and snipped the back of its neck while the mother was still in the room.
Cross told the jury that when Shayquana Abrams came into the clinic in July 2008 she was pregnant, “and she was big.”
“That was the largest baby I ever saw,” Cross said.
When the baby was born alive, Abrams was sleeping. Cross said Dr. Gosnell took the baby boy, which she described as 12 to 18 inches long, and put him inside a plastic container the size of a shoebox.
“The baby was still breathing,” she said. “He didn’t cut the neck right there.”
The baby was too big for the plastic container, with his arms and legs hanging over the sides.
“The Doctor cut the back of the baby’s neck but didn’t do suction—normally Dr. Gosnell would do suction … to suck the brains out,” Cross said.
“I called people over to come see it [the baby] and we took pictures,” she said.
The baby boy had curled himself into the fetal position and laid on his side in the box. An image of the baby taken by Cross was shown to the court, showing him laying lifeless on his side. (the photo of the infant, Baby A, is included in the Grand Jury Report and is posted in this article.)
“It was supposed to go upstairs in the freezer, but it was still there the next day because the janitor complained,” Cross added.
