You can read about, or watch the trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnel. It is almost beyond belief to think that any human can commit the acts that he has and they are against another human. He didn't consider a baby a human. Abortion at any age, whether it be at conception or after being born is murder and it is being accepted as something a woman has the right to do as "it is her own body" to do with as she pleases. Maybe we can understand (though not agree) that women have been programed to think the baby is just a fetus for many months and not a human. But, how can any human go to a clinic that performs the acts that the Gosnel Clinic did and live with themselves later?
The most horrific thing I can imagine is to look at a child, just born, killed in front of your eyes and in such a painful way. Dr. Albert wrote an article May 14, 2013 that states how far our society has fallen that even when Gosnel was on trial the news media didn't cover it until their was an out cry from the public.
The doctor’s abortion clinic, described by a Philadelphia prosecutor as a “house of horrors,” is no more, but the truth revealed in his trial remains. He is not the only one with blood on his hands. The prosecution of Kermit Gosnell put the entire nation on trial. The doctor was indicted on hundreds of criminal counts, and in addition to the murder and manslaughter convictions he received yesterday, he was also convicted on more than two hundred counts including racketeering, infanticide, and performing abortions that violated Pennsylvania law. Most of those were illegal late-term abortions.
The evidence presented in the trial was gruesome. Investigators told of finding jars filled with parts of dismembered babies. Some of Dr. Gosnell’s co-workers told of seeing the doctor deliver babies alive, then murdering them by snipping their spinal cords with scissors. They told of babies moving their arms and legs and gasping for breath, even making noises as Dr. Gosnell murdered them
The arrest of Dr. Gosnell in 2011 brought a wave of news coverage. That was not the case with his trial — at least not until public outrage demanded that the press pay more attention. The mainstream media largely ignored the trial, and national attention came only after a concerted effort in social media and on the Internet made inattention to the story nearly impossible
As Kirsten Powers, writing in USA Today, wrote: “Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began on March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell’s former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.” She concluded, “The deafening silence of too much of the media, once a force for justice in America, is a disgrace.”
Reluctantly, many major media outlets did start to give the trial attention, but their coverage was often more about the controversy over the coverage of the trial than about the trial itself. END OF QUOTES
