Gosnell Chooses Life, Justice Served 24

I call heaven and earth today to witness against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live (Deuteronomy 30:19)

In exchange for dropping all appeals, abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell was spared death row.

It may seem ironic, but it’s really just human nature. Given the choice, a man naturally chooses life when his own life is at stake. The very reflection on the value of one’s own life is the basis for knowing that taking the life of another human being is wrong. Yet Kermit Gosnell would never admit that killing live-born children by snipping their necks with scissors and instructing his employees to do the same was wrong.

It’s not ironic. It’s just plain sad that abortion industry cannot own up to their own crimes against humanity. While Planned Parenthood and NARAL both distanced themselves from the convicted murderer, their statements ignore the crimes for which he was convicted. Planned Parenthood spokesman Eric Ferrero willingly disregards the obvious slaughter of innocent children in his statement:

“This verdict will ensure that no woman is victimized by Kermit Gosnell ever again. This case has made clear that we must have and enforce laws that protect access to safe and legal abortion, and we must reject misguided laws that would limit women’s options and force them to seek treatment from criminals like Kermit Gosnell.”

NARAL spokesman Ilyse Houge’s statement takes one step further beyond denial and shifts the blame for murder on Pro-Life politicians and advocates.

Justice was served to Kermit Gosnell today and he will pay the price for the atrocities he committed. We hope that the lessons of the trial do not fade with the verdict. Anti-choice politicians, and their unrelenting efforts to deny women access to safe and legal abortion care, will only drive more women to back-alley butchers like Kermit Gosnell.

The lessons of the trial that were lost on Ferrero and Hogue are that the abortionist catch phrase that abortion should be “safe and legal” is nothing but a slogan. In reality, their refusal to face the facts insures that abortion continues to be unsafe and in many cases illegal.

Planned Parenthood condemns itself with its own remarks, since just last month one of its facilities in Delaware was forced to close after “botching multiple abortions on women and facing a state investigation.”

While Planned Parenthood is earnest about keeping abortion legal, they don’t have the best track record when it comes to keeping it safe (as if murder were ever safe). And if anyone starts inquiring into the issue, the “safe and legal” slogan takes a back seat to their covering their own hide. Nothing safe or legal about their behavior in this video, certainly not concerned with the woman’s safety who filmed the incident.

That is the lesson learned from the Gosnell trial: This is the abortion industry. Brutal disregard for woman’s health, utter disregard for life, bent on killing innocent children at all costs. Unsanitary, unsafe, inhuman. All Funded by your taxpayer dollars, thanks in large part to this man. 

Were it up to our president, murdering children born alive would be no crime

Hopefully, the lessons learned from the Gosnell trial will have shed more light on criminal practices in abortion industry and its coverup. If 12 random citizens can see the murder of innocent children for what it is and convict the man guilty of it, perhaps more people will begin to see through Planned Parenthood’s dissembling and denial in the face of these brutal facts.

Even if Planned Parenthood and NARAL continue to avoid the truth and deceive the public in these matters, they are right that a great victory was won for women and children in this country: Justice has been served.

  1. Another ironic comment from NARAL calling Dr. Gosnell a “back alley” abortionist. NARAL founder Bernard Nathanson testified a majority of “back alley” abortionists were doctors operating after hours. According to Dr. Nathanson, many of these doctors shifted these services from the “back” of their offices to the front after Roe v. Wade (undoubtedly Dr. Gosnell was one of them).

    • It is ironic that they found an opportunity in this man’s criminal activity to further their own argument for “safe and legal”, which ultimately allows people to turn a blind eye on other criminals like Gosnell. They would have defended the man’s practice to the end were he not exposed for KILLING babies, which is what all abortion doctors do. The could have been killed in the same way while still inside the womb through the partial birth abortion procedure and would have suffered the same pain. Yet he is only convicted of murder because the screams and pictures of human babies made it clear that he and his staff committed infanticide. I fear that in 10 or 20 years, infanticide just might not be punishable by law anymore, as long as it is procured within the walls of a “safe and legal” abortion facility. Where will the slippery slope take us from there?

  3. What I find so sad about the Planned Parenthood and other pro-choice opinions on the Gosnell trial is this: The fact is that these babies died. Had they died in the womb through a “proper” abortion, I doubt these pro-choice folks would see anything wrong with this. Somehow they have convinced themselves that unless the baby is out of the womb, it somehow doesn’t count as a person and I would have thought that this trial would cause at least some people to reconsider when life begins. So sad.

    • Fully Agreed. Fortunately, the evidence in this case was clear enough to convince the jurors, 9 of which claimed to be “pro-choice.” Perhaps, having to face all of the facts in this trial will convince them and others that the fine line between abortion and murder is an entirely false distinction — let’s continue to pray and hope so.

  4. The pro-abortion argument above is illogical and irrational. This is exactly what “proper” and legal abortions look like, the so-called rescuing of women from “dangerous” back alley abortions. All abortions are dangerous. A baby is alive whether it is in the womb or outside of the womb. I know this case changed one journalist’s mind on abortion. I pray that many more persons are converted to pro-life. Planned Parenthood even fights legislation that would demand that abortion mills would be required to adhere to medical facility/hospital health cleanliness standards. That shows what these pro-abort groups really care about. Murder for profit. Sick and sad. God Bless.

    • You said it, Teresa: “Murder for profit. Sick and sad.” That’s all it is. I am with you in praying that because of this case more people will come to see it for what it is.

      God bless you!

    • Yup. There’s really not much more to be said.

      How are you doing, SR? Glad to hear from you and glad to be back in blogging business after a short break. God bless you and yours!

  6. Gosnell has the rest of his life to repent. I hope and pray that he does. As for the young woman who attacked the pro-life grandma, Rae, I’m not surprised. If a person can disregard the life of the most vulnerable person, she can disregard anyone’s life.

    • I too pray that Gosnell will come to recognize the evil of his crimes and that he will repent. As for the woman in the video, No, it does not surprise me either. It only underscores the fact that they do not value women, their health, their rights, or their safety. They don’t stand by any of the values they preach. As a huge money making industry, they only want unlimited and unquestioned access to abortion.
