Most people are aware by now of the arrest of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, MD and his staff. The story breaks just as our nation is preparing to recognize/mourn/celebrate (depending on one's perspective) the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. How ironic. And what a blow to the anti-life talking heads who would not prefer to have this story end up on their teleprompters.
You've probably seen the story covered by any number of sources. But have you read grand jury report?
Michelle Malkin writes:
"You must, must, must read the entire, graphic, 281-page grand jury report (embedded after my column below) to fully fathom the systematic execution of hundreds of (not just seven) healthy, living, breathing, squirming, viable babies — along with an untold number of mothers who may have lost their lives in his sick, grimy chamber of horrors as well. It is explicit. It is enraging. It will haunt you."
Why must we read it? Because it is the truth. It exposes the truth behind the horrors that exist even in sanitized, professional clinics. Gosnell leaves the babies he has mutilated and murdered strewn around his office for anyone to see. The "non-criminal" abortionist throws them away properly, eh? Fetal remains on the counter vs. fetal remains in the trash... anti-lifers are not upset at the truth, but only because the truth has been exposed.
"The clinic reeked of animal urine, courtesy of the cats that were allowed to roam (and defecate) freely. Furniture and blankets were stained with blood. Instruments were not properly sterilized. Disposable medical supplies were not disposed of; they were reused, over and over again. Medical equipment – such as the defibrillator, the EKG, the pulse oximeter, the blood pressure cuff – was generally broken; even when it worked, it wasn’t used. The emergency exit was padlocked shut. And scattered throughout, in cabinets, in the basement, in a freezer, in jars and bags and plastic jugs, were fetal remains. It was a baby charnel house." (Read the rest of the grand jury report here...)
The man is clearly a monster. But what about the inspectors who looked the other way time and time again? Complicit! What about hospital staff who treated the maimed subjects of his house of horrors? Complicit! What about government officials responsible for handling the mountains of complaints? Complicit! I'm sure their homes and offices are free of blood-soaked furniture... But the blood of Gosnell's victims are on their hands.
Why would anyone ignore such a man as Gosnell when they had the power to stop him?
Abortionists hold our secrets. They hide our sins. They bury our wickedness. They throw the evidence in their dumpster and allow us to lead our sanitized, phony lives free of any bloody stigma. Exposing Gosnell is exposing abortion.
It IS bloody. It IS gruesome. It IS sickening. It IS pain. It IS "fetal remains" and "mutilated babies." It IS dangerous for women. It IS murder.
This story is not really about Grosnell exposed but about ABORTION exposed.
This is topsy turvy kingdom... where people cry foul at the mutilated body of a baby only because it is big enough to shock our senses. Lord have mercy.
