Murders by Abortionist are Conservatives' Fault, Says Media

Time Magazine published two articles, each presenting an excuse for the infanticide by the abortionist now charged with multiple counts of murder: The reason for the horrific crimes, according to Time, is either 1) poverty or 2) the ever-increasing restrictions on abortions beyond the first trimester.

“As a rule, any law restricting abortion is almost automatically going to make abortion more dangerous for women.”

-- From "Why the Pa. Abortion Doc's Case Is About Poverty, Not Roe v. Wade" by Belinda Luscombe, Time Magazine 1/20/11

Depending on where people fall in the reproductive rights vs. fetal rights debate, their views on abortion doctors are different. To some, these doctors are heroic figures, helping needy women in the face of considerable public opprobrium, if not death threats. To others, they're taking away the lives of the yet-to-be-born. But if the grand-jury report released Wednesday by the Philadelphia district attorney is to be believed, abortion provider Dr. Kermit Gosnell would be hard for anyone to defend.

. . . the sad truth is that Gosnell's long-running practice probably has much more to do with poverty than with Roe v. Wade.

[Gosnell] is alleged to have performed illegal late-term abortions (in Pennsylvania, the law prohibits abortion later than 24 weeks). These procedures are difficult, so Gosnell's method, according to the charges, was to induce labor, deliver a live baby then kill it — or "ensure fetal demise," as Gosnell referred to it. He did this, the grand-jury report says, by "sticking scissors into the back of the baby's neck and cutting the spinal cord."

[Gosnell] was a health-care provider of last resort. Many of the women who came were too young, or too far along in their pregnancies to be treated by the mainstream medical establishment. They came because they were out of options or, at least, they believed they were.

Many of Gosnell's clients might have been afraid to report him because it would have meant admitting an illegal act on their part.

From "Philly Abortion Horrors: What Matters is How and Not When an Abortion is Done, Says Expert" by Bonnie Rochman, Time Magazine 1/21/11

. . . Pennsylvania, like most states, [restrict when abortions can be performed]; it bans them after 24 weeks.

For sure, late abortions have the potential to be more dangerous than first-trimester abortions. The fetus is larger, the uterus is larger, and there is a greater chance of serious complications. But early abortions can be deadly too [sic] if they're not done properly.

When abortion is restricted . . . only the well-off have access to the procedure.

From "The Philadelphia Horror: How mass murder gets a pass" by Michelle Malkin, Creators Syndicate 1/21/11

The 281-page grand jury report (see full embedded document below) released Wednesday provides a bone-chilling account of how Gosnell’s “Women’s Medical Society” systematically preyed on poor, minority pregnant women and their live, viable babies. The report’s introduction lays out the criminal enterprise that claimed the lives of untold numbers of babies — and mothers:
“This case is about a doctor who killed babies and endangered women. What we mean is that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable, babies in the third trimester of pregnancy – and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors. The medical practice by which he carried out this business was a filthy fraud in which he overdosed his patients with dangerous drugs, spread venereal disease among them with infected instruments, perforated their wombs and bowels – and, on at least two occasions, caused their deaths. Over the years, many people came to know that something was going on here. But no one put a stop to it.”
Deadly indifference to protecting life isn’t tangential to the abortion industry’s existence – it’s at the core of it. The Philadelphia Horror is no anomaly. It’s the logical, blood-curdling consequence of an evil, eugenics-rooted enterprise wrapped in feminist clothing.
