With the verdict finally in regarding the abortionist Kermit Gosnell we can review this horrific case and the reaction to it.
It was good to see how state legislatures and the Federal government moved to make sure nothing like this ever happens again. New legislation in regards to inspecting abortion clinics has swept the country. Oh wait that didn’t happen.
Strange how in most cases legislatures jump into action proposing new legislation before the ink is even dry regarding horrific crimes. An outcry to make sure that such a case could not happen again. To make sure that an abortion clinic could not operate for almost 20 years without an inspection. Yet the usual suspects who would regulate anything that moves are silent here. The same people who are outraged when a pro-life women’s clinic uses an ultrasound and would shut them down because of it will put up with pretty much any outrage in so many abortuaries. As I said before the reaction to Kermit Gosnell shows that for many who support abortion that they care more about keeping abortion legal than protecting women. That any threat regarding regulation of an abortion clinic must be pushed aside.
Groups that oppose legal abortion are using the horror surrounding his clinic, which garnered fresh attention during his murder trial, to push for new state and federal restrictions – even though Gosnell’s acts were already illegal. As CNN spins it.
“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. NARAL
Yes it is an atrocity if committed a minute after the child is born, but if chopped up in the womb any time before it is a right to be protected at all cost. The insanity of the pro-abortion position has always been there, but the emperor wears awesome clothes. NARAL talks about the lessons learned, but will not lift a finger to inspect abortion clinics. In fact they have argued that regulation drove women to use people like Kermit Gosnell. Protection of abortion is kind of like climate change in that no matter what happens it proves your point.
They call him a back-alley butcher now just to use the words back-alley to try to remind women of the fake statistics created by a founding member of NARAL Dr. Bernard Nathanson. The former abortion doctor later admitted how he had created the fake statistic of 10,000 women dying each year from back-alley abortions.
Strangely they don’t call late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart who was caught on tape comparing unborn baby to ‘mushy meat in a Crock- Pot’ and joking about taking out fetus with ‘pickaxe and drill-bit’ a “back-alley butcher.” In fact NARAL has gone on record supporting him in the past.
Unfortunately regardless of the behavior of so many abortionists this is not going to shock the conscience of most Americans. Once you have bought the lie of abortion not being murder then all the other lies come as a package deal. If you can’t see the horror of dismembering a child in the womb you don’t really see the horror of Gosnell or so many who are equally twisted. If you support abortion you will accept a Gosnell just like assisted-suicide supporters supported an equally twisted Dr. Kevorkian.
Still despite the intentioned blindness of so many, some are removing those wrappings around their eyes. Last Month ex abortion clinic manager Abby Johnson wrote this:
During President Obama’s speech to a group supporting the nation’s largest abortion chain, he claimed that “Planned Parenthood is not going anywhere” now, or in the future.
Guess what, Obama? Neither are we.
Of the 97 original Planned Parenthood affiliates that once stood, only 80 remain. Just in the last few weeks, four Planned Parenthood clinics in Wisconsin are closing down because they have been stripped of taxpayer funding. Clinic workers have left and publicly outed the disgusting Planned Parenthood center in Delaware, noting its dangerous conditions and the fact that five women were hospitalized in a five-week period from botched abortions at this one location. That center has been closed. In 2009, Texas had over 90 Planned Parenthood centers in the state. There are now fewer than 60 locations.
Obama reiterated Cecile Richards’s own words describing Planned Parenthood as “the only organization that she’s ever been at where there are opponents who … ’literally get up every day trying to figure out how to keep us from doing our work.” Planned Parenthood’s work consists of killing over 330,000 preborn boys and girls every single year while raking in over half a billion taxpayer dollars annually.
Since June 2012, 51 abortion-clinic workers have come through And Then There Were None, a ministry I launched last summer to help clinic workers quit their jobs, gain new employment, and find healing from their work in the abortion industry. Our most recent initiative, Exodus2013 — Leave the Abortion Industry Day, yielded much fruit. We had five abortion workers contact us, ready to quit their jobs with our support. Many of these former employees have come from Planned Parenthood centers across the country, and several are ready to speak out about their experiences in the abortion industry.
Sometimes, Planned Parenthood employees send us e-mails they receive regarding our work. Just before Exodus2013, a Planned Parenthood affiliate sent out a mass e-mail describing ATTWN as “a group [trying] to intimidate our current employees.” The fact that they even mentioned ATTWN is a surefire sign that they are terrified of the ministry and the former workers that come to us for help. Planned Parenthood went on to tell their employees that “you will not let these sorts of intimidation techniques sway you from our mission… . We, at Planned Parenthood, are committed to the growth and advancement of our staff. We are confident you will remain with us.” But there is good reason to question that the momentum is on their side. Even former NARAL president Nancy Keenan noticed the youth presence at the Rally for Life in D.C. in 2010, “I just thought, my gosh, they are so young,” she said. ”There are so many of them, and they are so young.”
President Obama and Planned Parenthood can publicly continue to cling to their false sense of security all they like. Their days are numbered, and they know it. They are feeling the pressure of an increasingly powerful pro-life movement, and we are not slowing down.
