That’s the face of Kermit Gosnell, a Pennsylvania abortionist who is currently on trial for murder. It’s also the face of evil. Don’t know his name? Not familiar with that face? Join the club. You’re far from alone, because his is a story that the mainstream media does not want to tell. Gosnell is on trial, has been on trial for nearly a month, and yet you wouldn’t know it if you got your news only from the mainstream media.
Gosnell was arrested early in 2011 and charged with eight murders: One woman died from an overdose of pain medication while being prepped for an abortion; seven babies who were born alive, after abortions, were allegedly murdered in cold blood by the “doctor” or his assistants: [emphasis added to quotes]
Gosnell, 69, was arrested and charged with eight counts of murder in all. Nine of Gosnell’s employees – including his wife, a cosmetologist who authorities say performed abortions – also were charged.
Prosecutors said Gosnell made millions of dollars over three decades performing thousands of dangerous abortions, many of them illegal late-term procedures. His clinic had no trained nurses or medical staff other than Gosnell, a family physician not certified in obstetrics or gynecology, prosecutors said.
At least two women died from the procedures, while scores more suffered perforated bowels, cervixes and uteruses, authorities said.
Under Pennsylvania law, abortions are illegal after 24 weeks of pregnancy, or just under six months, and most doctors won’t perform them after 20 weeks because of the risks, prosecutors said. …
[Gosnell] “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord,” District Attorney Seth Williams said.
Gosnell referred to it as “snipping,” prosecutors said.
Prosecutors estimated Gosnell ended hundreds of pregnancies by cutting the spinal cords, but they said they couldn’t prosecute more cases because he destroyed files. …
Authorities raided Gosnell’s clinic … in search of drug violations and stumbled upon “a house of horrors,” Williams said. Bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses “were scattered throughout the building,” the district attorney said. “There were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.“
Prosecutors said the place reeked of cat urine because of the animals that were allowed to roam freely, furniture and blankets were stained with blood, instruments were not properly sterilized, and disposable medical supplies were used over and over.
Gosnell didn’t advertise, but word got around. …
Yes, word apparently got around to potential clients, but word of his alleged horrific deeds are barely getting around the United States of America. Local news, some blogs, conservative websites, and Christian media are covering this trial, but not the national media. Today, from the UK media, we learn of testimony from a worker in the Gosnell abortion mill:
… Sherry West, who is a witness in the murder trial against her former boss Dr. Kermit Gosnell, said that when the tiny ‘specimen’ screamed ‘it sounded like a little alien’. …
She said that she hated working at the clinic but, like other employees there, she was given a job by Gosnell when she was struggling and desperate for money …
She had left her job as a surgical technician after 22 years when she contracted hepatitis C and began suffering from depression. She had not received a pay check in nearly two years when Gosnell, who had been her own doctor for two decades, offered to find her some work. …
In one particularly graphic description, she spoke about a time when she was handed a 18- to 24-inch-long newborn in a glass pan by an assistant who asked for her help.
‘I saw it, and I thought, “What do you expect me to do?”‘ she said. ‘It didn’t have eyes or a mouth but it was like screeching, making this noise. It was weird. It sounded like a little alien.’
She said she was so ‘freaked out’ that she left the room and did not know what happened to the baby. …
Other employees have described how they saw about 100 babies born alive and then ‘snipped’ with surgical scissors in the back of the neck, to ensure their ‘demise’.
The story features mug shots of the other defendants, other faces of (alleged) evil.
So amazed are some at the near-total media blackout of this story that they’ve written to the mainstream media to demand coverage:
Twenty prominent leaders of the conservative movement have joined Media Research Center President Brent Bozell in demanding the broadcast networks stop censoring coverage of the trial of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell and the testimony of the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates in favor of murdering children who survive botched abortions. Although abortion has re-entered the news cycle following the passage of pro-life measures in North Dakota and Arkansas, the MRC’s Culture and Media Institute finds that ABC, CBS, and NBC have completely censored both of these outrageous stories:
- Since the Gosnell trial began three weeks ago, ABC, CBS, and NBC have given the story ZERO seconds of coverage on either their morning or evening news shows. They have not covered Gosnell once since his arrest in January 2011, and even then, only CBS did so.
- After the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates’ testimony in favor of post-birth abortions surfaced on March 29, ABC, CBS, and NBC have committed ZERO seconds of coverage on either of their morning or evening news shows.
- ABC, CBS, and NBC have each covered the new abortion laws in North Dakota and Arkansas, ominously describing them as the “most restrictive” in the nation.
As noted above, Bozell and the others were shocked that this story was also suppressed by mainstream media:
Florida legislators considering a bill to require abortionists to provide medical care to an infant who survives an abortion were shocked during a committee hearing this week when a Planned Parenthood official endorsed a right to post-birth abortion.
Alisa LaPolt Snow, the lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, testified that her organization believes the decision to kill an infant who survives a failed abortion should be left up to the woman seeking an abortion and her abortion doctor.
“So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief,” said Rep. Jim Boyd. “If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?”
“We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician,” said Planned Parenthood lobbyist Snow.
Rep. Daniel Davis then asked Snow, “What happens in a situation where a baby is alive, breathing on a table, moving. What do your physicians do at that point?”
“I do not have that information,” Snow replied. “I am not a physician, I am not an abortion provider. So I do not have that information.”
Rep. Jose Oliva followed up, asking the Planned Parenthood official, “You stated that a baby born alive on a table as a result of a botched abortion that that decision should be left to the doctor and the family. Is that what you’re saying?”
Again, Snow replied, “That decision should be between the patient and the health care provider.”
Obviously, the “health care provider” isn’t providing health care to the baby!
The mainstream media are doing yeoman’s work suppressing these stories, because I’ve heard little to nothing about either one. One reason why they refuse to cover these stories is likely because Barack Hussein Obama II, as a state senator in Illinois, famously voted several times against an act to preserve the lives of infants born alive after an attempted abortion.
The following audio exposes Obama arguing against the legislation on the General Assembly floor, where he referred to a newborn baby as a “fetus outside of the womb.”
“That if that fetus, or child, however you want to describe it, is now outside of the mother’s womb and the doctor continues to think that it’s non viable but there’s lets say movement or some indication that they’re not just coming out limp and dead that in fact they would then have to call in a second physician to monitor and check off and make sure that this is not a live child that could be saved?“
It seems that the media, ever protective of Obama, don’t want to revisit that controversy.
In addition, since they’re mostly pro-abortion, they don’t want to rile up the American people with the FACT that babies are being murdered every day in this country in the name of “choice”. Let’s not allow people to see what REALLY goes on behind closed doors. It’s a choice, not a baby.
There’s also the inconvenient truth of Gosnell’s race (his lawyer is already playing the race card, calling the trial a “lynching“) and the unfortunate facts about the demographics of his clients. These are topics the media studiously avoid. Too messy. Not a narrative that they enjoy repeating. This type of dirty laundry is better swept under the rug.
Finally, they don’t want to revisit the controversy over Obama trying to force insurance companies to cover the “health care” of free abortions for all. It’s bad enough that a court recently decided that the morning after pill should be available over the counter, for all, no matter how young the girl. No parents need be involved; after all, your children belong to the state, not to you.
“Doctor” Gosnell faces the death penalty. If convicted, he will likely be given a far more merciful death than was meted out to those poor little angels. Nobody’s going to “snip” any convict’s neck, at least not in the USA.
We the People are not barbarians, after all. Not all of us, anyway.
