Reader Email: Kirsten Powers on Kermit Gosnell

Reader Trent Green emailed a link to this article written by Kirsten Powers. Kirsten is a liberal but she is a liberal with solid morals, something lacking in the mainstream media and in politics. She gets the Gosnell story exactly right:

Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven’t heard about these sickening accusations?

It’s not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell’s former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.

NBC-10 Philadelphia reported that, Stephen Massof, a former Gosnell worker, “described how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it, ‘literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body.” One former worker, Adrienne Moton, testified that Gosnell taught her his “snipping” technique to use on infants born alive.

Massof, who, like other witnesses, has himself pleaded guilty to serious crimes, testified “It would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place.” Here is the headline the Associated Press put on a story about his testimony that he saw 100 babies born and then snipped: “Staffer describes chaos at PA abortion clinic.”

“Chaos” isn’t really the story here. Butchering babies that were already born and were older than the state’s 24-week limit for abortions is the story. There is a reason the late Democratic senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan called this procedure infanticide.

Trent states:

I agree with Obama:

“No law or set of laws can keep our children completely safe. But if there’s even one thing we can do, if there’s just one life we can save, we’ve got an obligation to try.”
I agree.  If this abortion doctor had used an assault rifle to kill these babies instead, maybe the media would be outraged.  It’s time for abortion control.
Right on, Trent, right on.

  1. The sad thing is that what happened in this case is not isolated. It happens far more than we are allowed to know — because abortion is the sacrament of the Leftist religion.

  2. “Trent states” I agree with Obama. Obama gets no pass on this. Obama is a Gosnell supporter. He want’s no limits on the butchery that occurs in the nations abortion mills. Obama is a liar and only used that statement as a way to advance gun control. It Obama could figure out a way to rid the US of those that oppose him he would not have one ounce of sympathy with their demise. Obama could well be the son of Mao or Stalin.

    • I think Trent was illustrating a point through absurdity and sarcasm because we all know that Obama didn’t mean what he said. All of his statements come with an expiration date.

  3. Utah,

    I retread several times and thought the same however, I wanted to to make sure everyone knows Obama is abortion heavy.
