What this means for the abortion industry I cannot say. I'm hoping and praying that common sense and basic intelligence among the American people will simply connect the dots and go from there. Gosnell would not even be in that courtroom if he had simply done his job and killed the babies prior to delivery. We're talking about the difference of a space of inches and a time lapse of seconds to minutes. His biggest failure was simply being a bad abortionist. Abortionists kill babies IN the womb... oops.
The abortion industry will now proceed to further blame pro-lifers for the Gosnell horror instead of embracing the reality of what it is they do. Be on the lookout for the following bogus claims and distractions:
-- Lack of funding for abortions produces monsters like Gosnell
-- Gross negligence on the part of the authorities produces horrors like Gosnell's mill
-- Politicization of women's rights caused the crimes of Gosnell
-- Kermit Gosnell is the face of life before Roe v. Wade
-- Pennsylvania's restrictive abortion laws cause crimes like Gosnell's
-- Anti-choice politicians drive people to doctors like Gosnell
These are lies but they will grow and expand to huge proportions in the coming days. That's all they've got folks. Otherwise, they have to talk about what abortion is... and they don't want to do that.
If only Gosnell had only snipped those little necks before they slipped out, then pro-aborts wouldn't be in this bind. And isn't that the real horror of it all.
Take a good look at the talking points above and start preparing yourself to answer them. The cornered lion is desperate and we need to continue to speak the truth even in the face of that fury.
