Dr. Kermit Gosnell, abortion, and what?
As released by the AP, "PHILADELPHIA - A jury weighing murder charges against a Philadelphia abortion provider will re-hear several hours of testimony before resuming deliberations. Dr. Kermit Gosnell is charged with killing a patient and four babies allegedly born alive. Prosecutors say the 72-year-old Gosnell routinely killed babies born alive. The jury is set to spend much of Wednesday reviewing the testimony of medical assistant Lynda Williams. One of the infant deaths Gosnell is charged with relates to Williams. She has testified that she cut the child in the back of the neck after it was alive for about 20 minutes. Gosnell is charged with first-degree murder for allegedly conspiring with Williams to kill that baby. Williams has pleaded guilty to third-degree murder. The jury has been deliberating for a week Read more: http://www.abc15.com/dpp/news/national/dr-kermit-gosnell-abortion-trial-a-week-in-jury-weighs-pennsylvania-abortion-clinic-deaths#ixzz2Sds9TfIJ Mousie Marc Says, " Hey why haven't the media put this front page and put it on the mainstream news?" Well the following link really sheds the details pretty well. http://www.policymic.com/articles/34339/dr-kermit-gosnell-s-abortion-trial-why-isn-t-the-media-covering-it Lets quote from this article at depth "Among the relatively few cases that could be specifically documented, one was Baby Boy A. His 17-year-old mother was almost 30 weeks pregnant – seven and a half months – when labor was induced. An employee estimated his birth weight as approaching six pounds. He was breathing and moving when Dr. Gosnell severed his spine and put the body in a plastic shoebox for disposal." As was his wont, Dr. Kermit B. Gosnell would try to lighten the mood with a bit joking. Boy A was, he said, "big enough to walk around with me or walk me to the bus stop." But Boy A will never have that chance. The good doctor saw to that. Dr. Gosnell was the operator of an abortion mill – this was no clinic – located in West Philadelphia called the "Women's Medical Society" and set up in 1972. He was a product of the local neighborhood, and he had spent almost four decades running his establishment – "giving back" to the community he grew up in. Of course, he had a peculiar form of charity: "Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure." Gosnell's mill was known for its willingness to carry out late-term abortions – the illegal practice (in Pennsylvania) of killing a child after the initial 24 weeks of pregnancy. Indeed, as word spread about the doctor's services, women would come from all around to enjoy the benefit of his service.' Mousie Marc Says, "'Oh ha ha ha. That child could have walked me to the bus stop before I snipped this breathing childs spinal cord and watched it die.' Oh that Dr. Gosnell, he's a real humanitarian, and funny to boot. The article continues, ""There was blood on the floor," witnesses reported. "A stench of urine filled the air. A flea-infested cat was wandering through the facility, and there were cat feces on the stairs. Semi-conscious women scheduled for abortions were moaning in the waiting room or the recovery room, where they sat on dirty recliners covered with blood-stained blankets." Mousie Marc Says, "Oh and here comes the most game changing part of the article. When asked why this practice was allowed to continue for DECADES. The article makes this conclusion." In short, "the reason no one acted is because the women in question were poor and of color, because the victims were infants without identities, and because the subject was the political football of abortion." Mousie Marc Says, "So back to my original question. Why is this not being covered? This is just the tip of the ice berg of what this guy has done. I've heard so much more. Following through on abortions even when the women changed her mind by quickly sedating her being just one of them. our society wouldn't be protecting it's sacred cow would it?"
