Murdered children [infants] does not qualify for big news and extensive coverage for corporate mainstream media, unless it is caused by a mentally disturbed person using firearms. Neither did it inspire President Obama to go about the country in a campaign against abortion clinics, with only a remark from the White House that the abortion trial was unsettling made ten days ago.
In the corporate mainstream media news centers, more time was spent on airport delays due to traffic controller furloughs that Obama ordered because he was forced to budget because of those mean conservatives in Congress – while recently approving $500 million of taxpayer dollars to Egypt. That nation, whose people attacked our embassy and burned the American flag, is receiving not only cash, but tanks and planes and other instruments of war, while Obama and friends work hard to disarm lawful citizens back home.
Dr. Gosnell is charged with four first-degree murder counts for the deaths of four babies in Pennsylvania where abortions past 24 weeks are illegal unless the health of the mother is at stake. The abortion doctor, 72, is also charged with third-degree murder in the death of a 41-year-old Virginia woman, who died of an anesthetic overdose during a second-trimester abortion. The clinic was operated by Dr. Gosnell in West Philadelphia, and he pleaded not guilty.
Three of the seven first-degree murder charges against D. Gosnell were removed as well as five abuse of corpses charges. Judge Jeffery P. Minehart also dismissed one count of infanticide, the intentional killing of an infant.
For twenty years, health and licensing officials had received reports about the practices of Dr. Gosnell – but took no action. The clinic was the scene of something from a horror film where bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building and jars containing the severed feet of babies lined a shelf. Furniture and equipment were bloodstained, dusty, and broken. CNN made an interview with a victim’s daughter and who provided testimony against Dr. Gosnell, whose attorney rested his case without producing any witnesses for the defense.
In 2011, the following was reported from the Center for Disease Control:
- Deaths caused by accidental discharge of a firearm: 851.
- Suicides using a firearm: 19,766.
- Homicides caused by firearms: 11,101.
- Death with undetermined intent caused by firearms: 222.
- Total deaths caused by firearms was 31,940, according to Freedom Info Network.
In 2011, 1.3 million infants were killed by abortion procedures in the US and 43 million worldwide. [Wiki Answers]
The doctor probably would not have been prosecuted if it were not for a federal drug raid at the abortion clinic revealed the clinic of horror. Conditions were so bad that women became infected with venereal disease. The grand jury was ordered to go to the scene wearing Hazmat suits.
The arrest and grand jury proceedings received little national news coverage outside the Pennsylvania media circuit because it was more important to use the Sandy Hook tragedy in the media’s zeal to denounce the Second Amendment.
It is a clear testimony that since the government has taken upon itself to sanction and oversee the administration of death of pre-born infants it has steadily increased to the point that the US is number one in infantile death rates, most of the cost paid by taxpayer dollars. It is considered part of the government “health system” – so one wonders why American people would allow the government under the ObamaCare system to be in charge of private health needs.
The death toll of this clinic far exceeds the combined death toll of all the mass murders committed with firearms since Columbine. Dr. Gosnell faces 380 criminal charges even after Judge Minehart dismissed three of the original seven first-degree murder charges and six other “minor” counts.
If you decide to protest abortion clinics and the government-sanctioned, taxpayer paid for infant killing factories – remember what Obama signed:
