I have no idea what will be the final outcome for accused baby-murderer and self-admitted abortionist Kermit Gosnell. I would love to see him convicted and the sentence upheld. But I don’t know what kind of opposition will push back against such a conviction in the higher courts. Whatever the outcome, it is amazing to hear the testimony from alternative media and watch the mainstream media avert their (and our) eyes. According to the New American:
“Stephen Massof, 50, who went to work for Gosnell in 2003 after attending medical school in Grenada, has pled guilty to third-degree murder in the deaths of two infants at the clinic. But he estimates that in his five years working there he witnessed the births of some 100 babies, whose spinal cords were then snipped with a surgical scissors — ‘literally a beheading,’ he said. It was, he added, nothing less than ‘separating the brain from the body.’ In his testimony Massof said that when women were administered medication to speed up their deliveries, ‘it would rain fetuses — fetuses and blood all over the place.’ The assistant testified, ‘I felt like a firemen in hell. I couldn’t put out all the fires…. I would run around with scissors.’” [boldface added]
The New American noted that the mainstream media had devoted no time to the testimony in these trials despite their sensational nature. Is anyone surprised? Other than Christian or conservative press, only a few local news sites are willing to tell the story:
“Massof’s is not the only heart-rending testimony offered against Gosnell. Delware Online reported that Sherry West, another Gosnell assistant who faces up to 100 years in prison after pleading guilty to third-degree murder in the deaths of children born alive at the clinic, recalled hearing a newborn baby scream before it was killed. ‘I can’t describe it,’ West said of the cry the baby made. ‘It sounded like a little alien.’ West told a judge that the baby was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during an abortion procedure at the clinic. ‘West said she saw the child, whose face and features were not yet completely formed, lying on a glass tray on a shelf, and she told a co-worker to call Gosnell about it and fled the room,’ reported the Delaware news site.”
I notice that not only the mainstream media, but many libertarian outfits don’t even acknowledge the trial is happening. (Here is one admirable counter-example, but it goes all the way back to January 2011.)
What is going on?
Quite simply, many in America have decided their highest loyalty is to the sexual revolution and the utopia it envisions. Even if their job is to make money publishing sensational news or their professed political philosophy allegedly rests on the non-aggression principle, they are simply not going to acknowledge or reckon with data that shows them that the price of their vision of the future includes bloodshed. The only way to really make sex completely recreational is to make babies only a matter of choice. Since no form of contraception is absolutely failproof, abortion is indispensable as a backup procedure. And if the legal pre-birth murder industry also attracts sleazy post-birth baby-killers like Gosnell, then so be it.
The Sexual Revolution must not be questioned; because it is a god to whom we make sacrifices. Bloody priests are part of the deal.
