I’ve struggled with this piece unlike with any other I’ve ever written. The details of this case and the other investigative, undercover videos that have emerged recently are so horrifyingly wicked and evil that it’s hard for me to even drudge up the wherewithal to watch a second of it. I’ve always said that abortion- for or against- boils down to one thing: basic human decency.
Maybe because my youngest is only a year old and I remember those graphic 4d ultrasounds that took place a mere few months ago. My sweet little baby playing with her cord, sucking her fingers, blinking her eyes- being formed in her own unique way was so visible at such an early stage. Yet, I’ve seen people recoil in disgust and willing to throw their last penny to pay for a hurting animal- and immediately turn cold-hearted at the thought of an “unwanted baby” of their own flesh and blood.
There aren’t many political topics that I can’t debate in fun. But human life- innocent at it’s very core– without any chance or opportunity to defend itself is one that I can’t walk away with and shake hands. That’s where I draw the line. I recoil on the inside, and I’m sure it’s visibly noticeable.
As a mother who has seen life visible at just a few mere weeks while laying on the doctors table, staring at a pulsing heart on the screen beside me, my heart bleeds and cries at the thought of the lie that is being sold to women and young girls everywhere by a sector of our society who has allowed Convenience to be their god.
The Gosnell trials has brought this horrific practice, with it’s graphic details, into the spotlight. The reality and horror is on the stand. But it’s been ignored by a media who wants to brush it under the rug so it doesn’t have the chance to prick at the conscience of the public.
The reality of abortion isn’t nearly so clean as the multi-million dollar industry who profits from it wants you to believe. The reality is some babies are born alive…left to die, gasping for breath on a table or drowning in a toilet. Women, the mothers, who are debased and, in some cases, left to die. The left wants us to believe that Planned Parenthood is there to prevent those back alley abortions- instead, all too often, they leave the same exact results- dark and lonely corners, blood dripping utensils (instead of hangers) , and babies born alive and thrown into a bucket to die a painfully wicked death…and doctors who collect the little hands and feet in jars as mementos, But…..shhhhhhh…. That’s a secret that must be left off the airwaves -it certainly is an inconvenient truth that mustn’t be revealed.
The horrors of what has happened with the Gosnell trials is nothing short of the equivalent of any headline news. But, it’s been whitewashed, ignored, swept under the rug. Otherwise, it reveals Planned Parenthood and abortion advocates to be the graphic, murderous and inhumane organization that it has always been. In fact, even finding someone who has heard the name “Gosnell” is so challenging it makes my blood turn to a boil. Why hasn’t everyone heard this man’s name? Why isn’t it being given the time in major media that it deserves? Details such as:
Well formed babies that Dr. Gosnell is alleged to have removed from women by inducing delivery or “precipitating,” as he called it. Then, because they were alive and breathing, he or members of his staff would plunge scissors into the back of the neck and sever the spinal cord. He is charged with doing this seven times, but it is thought he may have done it to hundreds of infants.
One clinic worker, Kareema Cross, testified one of the babies was born into a toilet.
“I saw the baby in the toilet. It moved. It breathed. It had a head as big as a pancake,” Cross testified…
Cross also testified about one particularly large baby.
