The Murder Trial the Media Won't Report: Abortion

Reserved media seating empty
"Baby cries out moments before doctor kills him" -- a likely headline of the evening news; if it bleeds, it leads.

However, it's NOT a leading news story if the killings occur at an abortion clinic.  The trial of Kermit Gosnell for eight counts of murder at his Philadelphia clinic is NOT being reported by any national mainstream broadcast media, for obvious reasons: It exposes the gruesome details of abortion.
“I only do what I'm told to do. ... I never knew it was murder.”
-- Lynda Williams, former staffer of Gosnell's Women's Medical Society clinic

-- From "Abortion doctor on trial, but media not interested; pro-lifers see bias in Philadelphia case" by Valerie Richardson, The Washington Times 4/8/13

Dr. Kermit Gosnell was an abortionist, meaning that any coverage of the trial risks painting the pro-choice movement in an unflattering light. In a statement issued last week, 20 conservative leaders called for an end to what they described as a “media blackout” and “censoring” of the trial for political reasons.

[The Media Research Center] reports that there has been no network coverage on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, NPR or PBS, and just one brief mention on CNN.

Not every murder trial receives prominent national coverage, but the Gosnell case would seem to contain all the ingredients of must-see television: a formerly respected community leader accused of unspeakable acts; the death of a young immigrant woman; a parade of former employees offering graphic testimony on the gruesome deaths of more than 100 just-born infants; and even the implication by the doctor’s lawyers that the charges have been motivated by racism. Dr. Gosnell is black and his clinic was in a mostly minority neighborhood.

From "Media Watchdogs Accuse Networks of Ignoring 'House of Horrors' Murder Trial" by Melissa Barnhart, CP Contributor 4/9/13

Conservative media watchdog groups are criticizing mainstream media networks and cable news channels for ignoring the murder trial of Kermit Gosnell, a late-term abortion provider who is accused of killing seven babies who were born alive and one patient who died from an overdose of Demerol that was administered by the clinic's unlicensed staff.

District Attorney R. Seth Williams laid out the case against Gosnell, his wife, Pearl, and eight other employees, including one 15-year-old, in a grand jury report last year, which reveals that Gosnell profited $10,000 to $15,000 a day at his late-term abortion clinic — not including the $200,000 he made from writing 2,300 illegal prescriptions for OxyContin and other addictive drugs.

The criminal case against Gosnell began on March 18 and is expected to continue for four to eight more weeks. If jurors convict Gosnell, he could face the death penalty . . .

From "Abortion Clinic Worker: 'It Sounded Like a Little Alien'" by Karen Araiza and Emad Khalil, WCAU-TV NBC-10 4/8/13

The fourth week of testimony in Dr, Kermit Gosnell's "House of Horrors" trial began with another former employee testifying about what she saw and what she did while she worked at the Women's Medical Society.

[Sherry] West testified that once during an abortion procedure, she was very disturbed when a baby made a screeching noise. She said it was not fully-developed and "it sounded like a little alien. It really freaked me out," West told the courtroom.

West, who has pleaded guilty to 3rd degree murder and conspiracy, said tearfully that she is not guilty of her crimes and that she felt loyal to Gosnell.

From "Staffer recalls horrors at Pennsylvania abortion clinic" by Sean O’Sullivan, The (Wilmington, Del.) News Journal 4/9/13

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, owner of the Women's Medical Society clinic in West Philadelphia, taught her how to flip a baby's body over and do the procedure, said Lynda Williams, 44, of Wilmington, Del. But one time when she followed his orders after a baby was delivered in a toilet at the clinic, she saw the newborn move.

"It jumped, the arm," she said, showing the Philadelphia Common Pleas Court jury by raising her arm.

Williams told investigators she only snipped a neck the one time "because it gave me the creeps."

Williams said she asked Gosnell about the movement. Gosnell told her it was an "involuntary response" and a "last breath" because the fetus was "already dead" from drugs that had been administered earlier.

From "Reality Reverses Abortion’s Cultural Momentum" by David French, National Review Online 4/9/13

Amidst this month’s arguments that cultural changes are “inevitable” and irresistible, the abortion industry’s constant setbacks — both in public opinion and in legislatures across the country — must frustrate and puzzle the sexual revolutionaries. As the saying goes, reality always gets a vote, and the reality of abortion is unspeakably brutal. The abortion industry thrives only by shielding the public from as much of that brutality as possible. Abortion advocates can scream “Todd Akin” all they want, but Todd Akin never killed a screaming, crying child. Kermit Gosnell did.

. . . The abortion industry, born in racism and eugenics, thrives through diversion and deception. By contrast, an effective short tactical mission statement for the pro-life community would be simply this: Tell the truth — as often as you can, to as many audiences as you can.
