Gosnell Is Not Alone

Gary Bauer, Campaign for Working Families: T he fate of abortionist Kermit Gosnell is now in the hands of jurors. Many Americans are still completely unaware of his trial and the gruesome atrocities he committed in the name of "reproductive choice." They don't know because Big Media conspired to cover it up. Consider this analysis from our friends at the Media Research Center:

"Forty two days ago, on March 18, 2013, abortionist Kermit Gosnell went on trial…Yet, in the seven weeks that followed, ABC News has permitted no coverage, discussion or mention of the case, not even a single utterance of Dr. Gosnell's name.

"But that's not due to lack of interest in shocking criminal cases. Over the same 42 days, the Media Research Center found that ABC's 'Good Morning America' has aired 41 stories -- about one per day -- on other sensational criminal cases … totaling 109 minutes of coverage."

The sad reality is that while Gosnell's crimes may be an extreme case he is by no means alone in his contempt for life. The pro-life group Live Action released two new undercover videos this week from abortion mills in the Bronx and Washington, D.C., revealing that both facilities might allow a baby born during a botched abortion to die.

At the Bronx "clinic," a staffer discussing a late-term abortion said she would essentially drown the baby in a jar of solution to stop it from "twitching." When an investigator asked what she should do if the two-day-long procedure caused her to go into labor at home and delivered a live baby, the staffer says, "Flush it!"

The D.C. abortionist was more artful with his choice of words. When asked what he would do if a baby were born alive, he said:

"Technically -- you know, legally we would be obligated to help it, you know, to survive. … It's all in how vigorously you do things to help a fetus survive at this point. Let's say you went into labor… and you delivered before we got to the termination part of the procedure here, you know? Then we would do things -- we would -- we would not help it."

The practice of "after-birth abortions" is likely more widespread than most of us realized.

One of the left's biggest lies is that it stands for compassion. Where does after-birth abortion fit into anyone's idea of compassion? While most Americans rightly recoil in horror, too few realize that this is a legacy of Roe v. Wade.

Some conservatives complain that our movement is perceived as "uncaring." Yet they are the very same people who suggest we stop talking about issues like the sanctity of life.
Gary Bauer is a conservative family values advocate and serves as president of American Values and chairman of the Campaign for Working Families.

Gosnell Attorney Closes: No Evidence Babies Alive When Necks Snipped The defense attorney for abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell presented his closing arguments to the jury today and claimed there was no evidence the babies whose necks Gosnell “snipped” were alive at the time he snipped them. Jack McMahon attempted to make the case to the jury today that workers for Gosnell are exaggerating the importance of movements in babies Gosnell killed.

DC Abortionist on Tape: If an Abortion Failed, We'd Leave the Infant to Die

Guy Benson, TownHall.com: I'd imagine that most people find these investigative videos from Live Action are exceedingly difficult to watch, regardless of their stance on abortion.  Which is probably the point.  Yesterday, the group released its first clip in a series of hidden-camera exposes, in which a late-term abortionist in the Bronx cheerfully describes the gruesome nature of the procedure she administers for a living.  She tells the pregnant woman that at 23 weeks, the unborn child is "fully grown."  When the young woman asks what would happen if she went into labor and gave birth prior to the conclusion of the two-day abortion procedure, the so-called medical professional offers this counsel: "Flush it."  Round two features a late-term abortionist in Washington, DC.  Live Action's investigator tells the death doctor she is 25 weeks pregnant, more than six months into gestation.  Watch as he explicitly affirms that his clinic would violate the law if the baby survived the abortion and was born alive.  "We would not help it:"
Technically – you know, legally we would be obligated to help it, you know, to survive. But, you know, it probably wouldn’t. It’s all in how vigorously you do things to help a fetus survive at this point. Let’s say you went into labor, the membranes ruptured, and you delivered before we got to the termination part of the procedure here, you know? Then we would do things – we would – we would not help it. We wouldn’t intubate. It would be, you know, uh, a person, a terminal person in the hospital, let’s say, that had cancer, you know? You wouldn’t do any extra procedures to help that person survive. Like ‘do not resuscitate’ orders. We would do the same things here.”
As Ed Morrissey points out, "do not resuscitate" orders are a critically flawed analogy in this case because DNR patients reach that decision for themselves and sign off on the paperwork.  No unborn child has ever signed up to be killed.  Indeed, witnesses at the Gosnell murder trial have testified that some born-alive infants (or "viable fetuses," as the New York Times called them) at that clinic struggled mightily to survive.  Incidentally, Planned Parenthood -- an organization that receives hundreds of millions in taxpayer funding and literal blessings from President Obama -- was aware of the unsanitary house of horror Gosnell presided over in Philadelphia.  By their own admission, they did nothing.  A few more thoughts on Live Action's latest video, and this issue in general:
(1) If you look closely at the 1:04 mark, you'll notice that the clinic's television is tuned to MSNBC.  How very appropriate.

(2) Around 2:40, the abortionist downplays the possibility of the abortion failing to "take," resulting in a live birth.  He concedes that it "could" happen, but assures the patient that such an outcome had never transpired at his facility.  "Not here."  Just over two minutes later, the doctor sneers that in a backwards place like Virginia, hospital attendants would likely do everything within their power to save such a child.  He adds, "that's happened before, to tell you the truth."  He calls Virginia doctors' actions to save born-alive infants "the stupidest thing they could have done," condemning their course of action as "everything thing they shouldn't have done, which was to help [patients] deliver."  If you were an unborn child, would you rather live in Virginia or Washington, DC?

(3) In one sentence ("that's happened before, to tell you the truth"), this abortionist contradicts then-State Senator Barack Obama's assertion that these scenarios never arise, a falsehood upon which he based his three-time opposition to the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act.  Obama's spin ignored sworn testimony from whistle-blower nurses in Chicagoland. Obama's ex post facto justifications of his extremism on this issue have long since been debunked.  In short, he claimed he would have supported the Congressional version of the bill, which passed without a single dissenting vote -- but when that verbatim legislative language was introduced in Springfield, Obama blocked it again.  For a guy who was notorious for voting "present" on tough issues, Obama repeatedly went to the mat for infanticide.

(4) The Bronx expose begins with a soundbyte of Obama concurring with President Clinton that abortions should be "safe legal and rare."  Obama's 2008 and 2012 DNC platform dropped that formulation altogether. "Rare" was apparently deemed too judgmental within pro-abortion circles.

(5) Obama opposes virtually all limitations on abortion, including grisly late-term procedures.  His friends and benefactors at Planned Parenthood can't say if they believe if life necessarily begins at birth:
Translation: If a woman wants that pregnancy "terminated," she's entitled to a dead baby.  Definitional determinations about the status of a child's post-birth life are still up to the woman "and the physician."  Repulsive.  I'll leave you with a few words from a survivor of an attempted late-term abortion, Gianna Jessen:
UPDATE - Wow, the late-term abortionist in today's video, Dr. Caesare Santangelo, lashes out at Live Action and the young woman who exposed his practices, labeling them "terrorists:"
Santangelo, 56, said he’s been a practicing obstetrician-gynecologist in the District since 1987. He said he keeps a low profile, partly because he worries that the controversial nature of abortions could make him a target for violence, but also because he prefers to stay out of the politics. He said he sometimes refuses late-term abortions if he feels women have been coerced or are in extramarital affairs, are seeking to terminate because of the sex of the child, or seem unsure whether they want the procedure...He said he has not watched the video because “I don’t like to feed into these people. I really consider them terrorists.”
In damage-control mode, Santagelo now says of course he understands that once a baby is born, she's entitled to rights.  Except that's not what he said in a conversation with a prospective client that he thought was private.  Here is a man who makes money killing and dismembering viable human babies calling other people terrorists.  Also, he claims he sometimes declines to perform late-term abortions for women who are trying to cover up extramarital affairs or for reasons of sex-selection.  Even if that's true, why?  What makes those babies less killable than the others?  Live Action founder Lila Rose responds to Santangelo's smear:  “For Dr. Santagelo to call a 24 week pregnant woman a terrorist, after having just admitted he would leave struggling babies to die after surviving abortion, is a desperate attempt to distract from his own horrific actions. The numbness Dr. Santangelo displays to his victims is both heart-breaking and shocking. It is time to investigate the inhuman and brutal practices that happen behind the closed doors of these facilities across the country.”

Obama all in on abortion, defends government funding to Planned Parenthood

President Obama introduced by
Planned Parenthood Chair Cecilia Boone
- Img. via referenced article.
by Dave Boyer, The Washington Times: President Obama offered a defiant defense of government funding for Planned Parenthood Friday and urged the group’s members to help his administration sign up more women for benefits under his besieged health-care law.

The first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood, Mr. Obama accused conservative politicians of trying to “roll back the clock” on abortion rights and health-care services for women.

“They’ve been involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to women’s health,” Mr. Obama told the group’s annual convention in Washington. “When politicians try to turn Planned Parenthood into a punching bag, they’re not just talking about you, they’re talking about the millions of women who you serve. And when they talk about cutting off your funding, let’s be clear, they’re talking about telling many of those women, ‘You’re own your own.’ “ . . .

His address to Planned Parenthood came in the midst of a trial in Philadelphia involving an abortionist accused of murder and other charges for performing illegal late-term abortions. While Mr. Obama said in an interview last week he was following the case, he didn’t mention it at the Planned Parenthood meeting.

Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said Mr. Obama should have reproached Planned Parenthood officials for not doing more to stop the alleged violations at the clinic of Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Planned Parenthood officials in Philadelphia said they encouraged patients who complained to them about the clinic to report it to state authorities.

“President Obama blatantly ignored this inconvenient truth about the abortion industry’s horrific lack of oversight, and disparaged the pro-life advocates who wake up each morning with the goal of saving the lives of unborn children and women from the pain of abortion,” Ms. Dannenfelser said in a statement. . . .

The Abortion President

by Gary L. Bauer, Campaign for Working Families: The famously misnamed Planned Parenthood is hosting its national conference in Washington, D.C. this week. Today Barack Obama became the first sitting president to address the event, sponsored by the nation's largest destroyer of innocent human life.

His speech was full of distortions and lies. As is so typical of the left, Obama accused the pro-life movement of wanting to "turn back the clock to … the 1950s." He added that there is an "orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to women's health." Isn't it amazing that in Obama's world, 1.2 million abortions a year is seen as progress?

It is obscene when Obama equates the killing of innocent unborn children with healthcare. Pregnancy is not a disease! Even accepting that there are occasions when a woman's life or health may be in danger, such circumstances are among the rarest of reasons why abortions are performed today.

If Obama cares so much about women's health, when will his administration speak up about the growing scandal where women are dying along with babies? It is outrageous that he is addressing Planned Parenthood's conference when a butcher like Kermit Gosnell, who collected the feet of his little victims, is standing trial for "after-birth" abortions - literally killing babies after they were born.

And, by the way, Planned Parenthood knew about the horrific conditions at Gosnell's clinic, but to this day refuses to condemn him. Obama too is silent.

But Obama was there today, pledging his fealty to Planned Parenthood, promising to be "a president who is going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way."

Let me translate that for you: While we are cutting back on education, cutting air traffic controllers, cutting our military, cutting benefits to our seniors, Obama will be there to make sure that your hard-earned tax money keeps flowing to Planned Parenthood to subsidize abortions and to make sure that no legislation preventing any abortion of any kind ever becomes law.
Gary Bauer is is a conservative family values advocate and serves as president of American Values and chairman of the Campaign for Working Families where his articles are also shared.

Silence Is Approval Kermit Gosnell

by Jeffery Blanco, Louisiana Conservative: It may prove to be the American crime story of the decade, maybe even of the century, but if you are to ask the average person who Kermit Gosnell is they would just shrug. More than likely, when you tell people about Kermit Gosnell, you’re the first time they have heard of him. We have kept this story hidden away, hoping that history never uncovers the dark, seedy story of a Cuban-like healthcare system, a live baby swimming in toilets, and abortions that make coat hangers look like an advanced technology. Think I’m exaggerating? It’s actually worse than I described.

It’s not an issue of a woman’s choice, as even self described pro-choicers have denounced Kermit Gosnell. If this is the first time that you have heard of Kermit Gosnell, you have to be thinking to yourself, if it’s really that bad why haven’t I heard about it on the news?,

You are right, you’re not hearing about this on the news. The grim details, the story of the Mother’s Day massacre in which 15 women lost their lives due to abortions performed by Kermit Gosnell in the early 70s. Lawsuit after lawsuit filed against Gosnell for wrongful death after a woman died shortly after having an abortion done by Gosnell. The babies who were delivered and then had the backs of the necks snipped.

Perhaps it would have been much different if the women who were dying at the hands of Gosnell were white women, maybe then the mainstream media would have been outraged. Maybe they would have been appalled at the barbaric practices of Gosnell. What if Gosnell had been a white doctor who had killed at least 60 women that were minority? Would the press then sell this story because they could sensationalize “racism”?

It’s been such a non-story for the Mainstream Media that when they were forced to report on it by twitter users, their reports often mocked the groundswell of demand with stories not about Gosnell, instead of how the press overlooked Gosnell.

After looking at the facts, it’s hard not to conclude that Kermit Gosnell may be the greatest serial killer of all time, getting his victims in each of the last four decades. After looking at the facts, it’s hard to imagine that we hold a higher standard of medicine for a doctor who saves lives and no standards for doctors who take lives.

Over the past week, the press has been preoccupied with stories on the Boston Marabombers, and rightfully so. It shook us, it reminded us of 9-11, it shut down a whole city, and it reminded us how deadly terrorist can be. It struck a chord with every American who was alive on 9-11, but for those who wished the Kermit Gosnell story would go away, it was an evil blessing in disguise.

The defense has rested its case today, and now the jury goes into the room and becomes 12 angry men. For two years this story has managed to evade being National news, and as the case closes, it’s very likely that most people will never hear of Kermit Gosnell. There is always hope Lifetime will do a movie on him, might I suggest a title? “Hells Angel: The Kermit Gosnell Story”.

It’s hard to imagine that if pro-choice advocates condemn this man for his actions as do the pro-life advocates, then certainly those in the middle would be equally appalled. Perhaps the Main Stream Media doesn’t want you to know, maybe they think you can’t handle the truth, maybe they just don’t think you’re interested in the story. Whatever their reason, by default, they consent to Gosnell’s House of Horrors. After all, silence is approval. Or as Edmund Burke is known for stating “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to say nothing.”

Add to all that you’ve read so far, consider this, Kermit Gosnell also worked one day a week at Atlantic Women’s Medical Center in Maryland. AWMC’s owner is Leroy Brinkley, and Brinkley also owns Delta Clinic in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. According to USA Today, there is no “oversight” at the Delaware clinic that Kermit Gosnell worked at. Making matters a little closer to home for people in Baton Rouge, Gosnell’s co-defendant Eileen O’Neill got her job with Gosnell after working at the Delta Clinic in Baton Rouge.

This begs two questions, just how close were Gosnell and Brinkley (owner of Delta Clinic in Baton Rouge) and how effective is Louisiana state’s oversight on abortion clinics in Louisiana?

Stay silent if you must, but I… I can not, I will not stay silent. I will do my part to bring this to people’s attention. Abortion has not been my issue, and this isn’t about abortion. Shouldn’t women who are getting an abortion know, at least, that their provider is held to a higher standard than their tattoo artist? Regardless of how you feel about abortion, this is a case that we all should be united on. I hope you choose not to consent with silence, but instead to speak out against this barbarism. Help spread the word.

Students for Life: Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, has set their sights on college-aged women – preying on them in their moments of crisis and panic. We must expose Planned Parenthood as the big abortion business that they are — and show young people just how Planned Parenthood is profiting off of them.

According to research Students for Life of America published last June, a majority of young people do not even know Planned Parenthood does abortions, and often have a “favorable” view of the abortion Goliath.

This generation is opposed to abortion. Every poll confirms this fact. But when Planned Parenthood presents itself in the media and on campus, they never mention the dirty word “abortion” or their corrupt business model. That’s how they get their positive ratings from young people and lure them in.

After talking with former Planned Parenthood staffers like Abby Johnson and watching Planned Parenthood’s new strategy to distance themselves from the word ‘pro-choice’ because it’s too associated with the word abortion, we knew what we must do.

Starting this month, Students for Life of America is launching a year-long initiative called the Planned Parenthood Project to expose our nation’s abortion Goliath, hitting them at their weakest point – abortion.

By April 30th, FCC Needs to Hear From You!

Penny Nance, President, Concerned Women for America: April 30th … that's the cut-off date set by the FCC to receive the public's "feedback" on its consideration of dropping current broadcast decency standards that ban explicit profanity and "non-sexual" nudity.

And you better believe they'll be hearing from us. I urge you to stand with Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee as we engage the FCC and move to the front lines of the fight to protect America's children. Please click here to oppose outrageous indecency by signing our online Petition to the FCC now!

Current broadcast decency law prohibits expletives and nudity, even if brief or "fleeting."

The Supreme Court has upheld the law as constitutionally enforceable by the FCC, despite lawsuit attempts by networks NBC and FOX to overturn it.

And even after that decision last summer, did the FCC pursue the over one million complaints about the filth Americans were already forced to watch? Of course not! They simply sat on these complaints. And now, according to their own statement on the proposed rules, those complaints have been dismissed because they were "stale."

But if this new law is enacted, it would allow network television and local radio stations to air the "F" word and the "S" word and allow television programs to show frontal female exposure, even during typical hours when children are watching and listening.

I think you'd agree: Today's television goes far enough. The last thing we need is more vulgarity, >more filth, more indecency. For the sake of the children and grandchildren you love, we must take a strong and united stand in this fight. While the FCC goes M.I.A. on protecting America's children, we will not fail them.

Stop the indecency! Sign CWALAC's online Petition to the FCC immediately. Speak up for your family - your values - and the future of decency in America.

Pentagon Blocks Access to Southern Baptist Website

by Todd Starnes, Fox News Commentary: The U.S. Military has blocked access to the Southern Baptist Convention’s website on an unknown number of military bases because it contains “hostile content” — just weeks after an Army briefing labeled Evangelical Christians and Roman Catholics as examples of religious extremism, Fox News has learned.

The Southern Baptist Convention is the nation’s largest Protestant denomination known for its support of the pro-life movement and its strong belief in traditional marriage.

Southern Baptist chaplains reported that SBC.net had been blocked at military installations around the nation. An Air Force officer told Fox News that when he tried to log on to the website he received a message that his Internet usage was being logged and monitored for trying to access a blocked site.

The censorship was made public after an Army officer tried to log onto the denomination’s website and instead — received a warning message.

“The site you have requested has been blocked by Team CONUS (C-TNOSC/RCERT-CONUS) due to hostile content,” the message read.

Team CONUS protects the computer network of the Dept. of Defense. The SBC’s website was not blocked at the Pentagon.

It’s unclear what the “hostile content” might have been. The SBC is pro-life and opposed to same-sex marriage.

“So the Southern Baptist Convention is now considered hostile to the U.S. Army,” the officer wrote in an email to the American Family Association.

Sing Oldham, spokesman for the SBC, told Fox News he had been in touch with the Dept. of Defense and had serious concerns.  “This is deeply disturbing,” he told Fox News. “While the Deputy Chief of Operation of the US Army has assured us this is a random event with no malicious intent, the Army must run this to the ground to assure that this is the case.”

However, Fox News has received reports from across the country of Southern Baptist chaplains unable to access the website.

“If the government blocked any portion of the SBC.net Web site for any purpose, that would be an unconscionable breach of trust with the American public,” Oldham said. “The First Amendment exists to protect the church from governmental censorship of or infringement upon religious speech and the free exercise of religion.”

The Dept. of Defense confirmed to Fox News late Wednesday that the SBC website had been blocked — but not intentionally.

“The Department of Defense is not intentionally blocking access to this site, said Lt. Col. Damien Pickart. “We are working diligently to investigate what might be causing access issues for some of our service members and to correct the situation as quickly as possible.”

The AFA sent out an action alert urging its members to contact the Pentagon and ask them to “stop the military’s alarming trend of hostility towards faith and religious freedom in our military.” “Most disturbing to him (the Army officer) was the fact that the military labeled his personal religious faith as ‘hostile’ to the U.S. Army,” AFA spokesman Randy Sharp told Fox News.

Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, told Fox News that Southern Baptist chaplains on military bases around the nation have been unable to access the website. “It’s a concern for the Dept. of Defense to block the website of one of the major evangelical denominations in the country,” Crews told Fox News. “The Southern Baptist Convention has the largest number of chaplains in the military representing Southern Baptist soldiers and churches. Those chaplains need access to their denomination’s website.”

An Army Reservist contacted Fox News and said he tried to log onto the site and an “Access Denied” message appeared on the screen. “You request was categorized by Blue Coat Web Filter as ‘Religion,’” the message read.

Richard Land, president of the SBC’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission denounced the censorship and demanded that Southern Baptist soldiers be provided access to the site. “This is outrageous,” Land told Fox News. “Southern Baptists make up a higher percentage of the all-volunteer military than in the general population. It’s outrageous that our website would be blocked for Southern Baptists serving in the military and defending the freedom to access websites.” Land said the military censorship was part of a “disturbing trend.” “They need to unblock the website and find out who is responsible,” he said. “That person needs to be fired.”

Pickart told Fox News the Dept. of Defense “strongly supports the rights of service members, to include their ability to access religious websites like that of the SBC.”  “With Internet technology constantly evolving, the Department is working to ensure that service members have access to an open Internet while preserving information and operational security,” he said.

Religious liberty groups were outraged by the block and called for an immediate investigation.

“This is another example of the growing hostility toward evangelical Christians in the armed forces,” Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin, executive vice president of the Family Research Council told Fox News. “Ironically, the very people who are sworn to support and defend the rights provided in the U.S. Constitution are being denied the right to exercise those rights individually.”

The American Family Association feared it was further evidence of what they called religious hostility within the Pentagon.  “This is one more example of the Defense Department leadership allowing hostility towards faith and religious freedom in our military,” Sharp told Fox News. “The growing list of offenses is overwhelming and Secretary Chuck Hagel should no longer ignore it.”

In recent days, the Army has come under fire after an officer sent an email to subordinates labeling the AFA and the Family Research Council as “domestic hate groups.”

In another incident a group of Army Reservists were told that Evangelical Christians and Catholics are examples of religious extremists.

The Army categorized the incidents as isolated and not condoned by the Dept. of the Army. They said the presentation to the reservists was not produced by the Army nor did it reflect their policy or doctrine.

Last week, soldiers at Fort Wainwright in Alaska were told to scrape off a Bible verse reference on their weapon scopes. That verse had been inscribed by the maker of the scopes.

Among other incidents:
  • A War Games scenario at Fort Leavenworth that identified Christian groups and Evangelical groups as being potential threats;
  • A 2009 Dept. of Homeland Security memorandum that identified future threats to national security coming from Evangelicals and pro-life groups;
  • A West Point study released by the U.S. Military Academy’s Combating Terrorism Center that linked pro-lifers to terrorism;
  • Evangelical leader Franklin Graham was uninvited from the Pentagon’s National Day of Prayer service because of his comments about Islam;
  • Christian prayers were banned at the funeral services for veterans at Houston’s National Cemetery;
  • Bibles were banned at Walter Reed Army Medical Center – a decision that was later rescinded;
  • Christian crosses and a steeple were removed from a chapel in Afghanistan because the military said the icons disrespected other religions;
  • Catholic chaplains were told not to read a letter to parishioners from their archbishop related to Obamacare mandates. The Secretary of the Army feared the letter could be viewed as a call for civil disobedience.
“All of these things make one concerned about the attitude in the military toward evangelicals, Roman Catholics and other people of faith,” Crews said. “He are hoping the military makes every necessary step to correct this.”

The incidents led more than 40 members of Congress to write the Secretary of the Army earlier this month demanding an explanation and an apology. “This is astonishing and offensive,” read a written by Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO). “We call on you to rescind this briefing and apologize for its content and set the record straight on the Army’s view on these faith groups by providing a balanced briefing on religious extremism.”
Article shared under the "Fair-use doctrine" to identify and educate readers on the attacks on Christians in the military and by the current administration.

'Dr.' Kermit Gosnell and Barack Obama's heart of stone

"It will have blood, they say. Blood will have blood. Stones have been known to move, and trees to speak. Augurs and understood relations have by maggot pies and choughs and rooks brought forth the secret'st man of blood." (Shakespeare's "Macbeth," Act 3, Scene 4)
Dr. Alan Keyes
By Dr. Alan Keyes, Renew America: When he was a state senator in the Illinois Legislature, Barack Obama opposed a bill intended to assure that nascent children who managed to survive an abortionist's effort to murder them would be given the same care as other children born alive into this world. As a result of his statements and actions at that time, I and others have accurately noted that he countenanced infanticide rather than concede one jot or tittle of his fanatical support for so-called "abortion rights." As reported by factcheck.org (a site not notorious for its willingness to clarify facts detrimental to Obama), "His stated reasons for opposing 'born-alive' bills have to do with preserving abortion rights, a position he is known to support and has never hidden."

However, as the bill approached a vote in the legislature in 2002, Obama slyly avoided explaining his position in such stark ideological terms. He posed as an advocate for the concerns of the medical community, suggesting that the bill cast doubt on the professionalism of the "doctor" carrying out the death sentence the mother had imposed upon her offspring. Obama said:

"Essentially, I think...the only plausible rationale, to my mind, for this legislation would be if you had a suspicion that a doctor, the attending physician, who has made an assessment that this is a nonviable fetus and that, let's say for the purposes of the mother's health...labor is being induced, that that physician a) is going to make the wrong assessment, and b) if the physician discovered, after the labor had been induced, that, in fact, he made an error, or she made an error, and, in fact that this was not a nonviable fetus but, in fact, a live child, that that physician, of his own accord or her own accord, would not try to exercise the sort of medical measures and practices that would be involved in saving that child. Now...if you think that there are possibilities that doctors would not do that, then maybe this bill makes sense....I, at least, have confidence that a doctor who is in that room is going to make sure that they're looked after."

Obama voiced this confidence despite the fact that he was among the legislators who, in March of the previous year, heard firsthand testimony from Jill Stanek, a delivery ward RN in an Illinois hospital. Stanek's description of infants "allowed to die without any attempt to provide medical treatment" even moved most of Obama's pro-abortion Democrat colleagues in the Illinois Legislature to support legislation to protect the lives of every infant born alive in Illinois hospitals. Unlike them, his commitment to the specious right to murder one's posterity is so fanatical that he would rather risk fully exposing the murderous intent and nature of so-called "abortion rights" than to limit their scope in any way.

More amazing, however, than Obama's obdurate insistence upon the death penalty for infants who survive the "medical care" of the doctor appointed to assassinate them is his indifference to the gruesome realities being exposed, in chilling detail, at the trial of abortionist "Dr." Kermit Gosnell. The accounts of casual child murders at Gosnell's death house for nascent babies, complete with nauseating humor, ought certainly to do what Jill Stanek's moving testimony could not, those many years ago. They ought to break Obama's heart of stone.

Instead, his official spokesman persists in dismissing as "hypothetical" the now evident fact that the practice of so-called "abortion rights" simply means licensing physicians to murder helpless, innocent babies. This practice contradicts and ultimately displaces the heart for healing that, once upon a time, lived by the sacred maxim Primum non nocere, "First, do no harm." True physicians were not permitted to be the instrument of action that has no intent but willful, death- dealing harm. Gosnell represents what has become of medical professionals since that primordial discipline was cast to the wind. This exposes Obama for what he is (and along with him, all those who promote the suppression of the unalienable right to life), a "most secret man of blood."

Thanks to Kermit Gosnell, the secret is out. In recent weeks, others have written extensively about the elitist faction media's conspiracy of silence regarding the Gosnell trial. Nothing more emphatically proves the consciousness of guilt that haunts and oppresses those who have conspired to impose the culture of murderous death so contrary to the founding premises of our society, which include, first of all, respect for the unalienable, God-endowed right to life. If they thought the homicidal atmosphere at Gosnell's death house was exceptional, the elitist media commissars would not feel compelled to shield the facts from general public scrutiny. They apparently feel certain that the facts of the Gosnell case are like roaches caught in the light, each one representing so many more still hidden in places of darkness.

They know, and are part of, the noisome fog of murderous intent that pervades the whole abortion industry. And tragically, through the fissure opened up by the wicked notion that wholesale child murder is a rightful aspect of "medical care," this deadly fog of evil begins to pervade the entire medical profession. At the beginning and the end of life, those who should only be healers are being perverted into skilled assassins. Having licensed individuals to procure the murder of their offspring, the elitists who now control government power are fashioning "health care" institutions to give themselves license to cull the human herd, without regard for any will or judgment but their own.

The facts being revealed at Gosnell's trial are like the auguries, mentioned in Shakespeare's "Macbeth." They cry out for judgment against the spilling of innocent blood. You see, Shakespeare's Macbeth was right. God's first law of human natural justice (Genesis 9:6) means that blood will have blood. We Americans may not wish to admit it, but somewhere in the midst of our grief and dismay in the aftermath of an attack like the one that just now marred the Boston Marathon, the still, small voice of conscience whispers: "The evil that we fight is but the shadow of the evil that we do." Such shadow-boxing is part of the choreography of God's due process. It is a self-defeating martial art, at which Obama is presently the sensei-in-chief. He represents an elitist faction skilled at producing blows they then purport to parry. As long as the American people continue to suffer, in positions of power, such minions of elitist factional ambition, we will fight in vain against the ruthless forces that are gradually consuming our nation's life in decent liberty.

Startling Ruling in Gosnell Abortion Trial

Warning Graphic Details
by Michael Carl, World Net Daily: PHILADELPHIA – The judge in the abortion murder trial for practitioner Kermit Gosnell has dismissed several of the counts in the case, including one of infanticide and three of murder.

The decision came today from Judge Jeffrey Minehart after Jack McMahon, Gosnell’s defense attorney, argued for the dismissals.

Also dropped were several counts of abuse of a corpse.

The trial, however, will continue on the rest of the counts that stem from the 72-year-old abortionist’s business in Philadelphia, the “Women’s Medical Center” that has been dubbed the “House of Horrors” for the events that occurred there.

He was accused of snipping the spinal cords of seven babies who were born alive at the facility, although witnesses have described that that same procedure was used to dispatch possibly hundreds of infants, as well as the drug overdose death of a patient.

Five other murder counts remain, . . . Minehart dropped the infanticide charge regarding “Baby B,” a baby born in a toilet, as well as murder charges for “Baby A,” “Baby C” and “Baby G.”

“”The prosecution has to show malice, the fact that Dr. Gosnell acted with intentional disregard for the safety of the mother and treated them differently than he did with the others,” McMahon said. “The prosecution has failed to do that.”

McMahon also cited Pennsylvania’s “24-Week Law.”

“Yes, Dr. Gosnell did abortions past the 24-week limit, but not one of those who he’s accused of harming were past 24 weeks.”

Prosecutor Ed Cameron said the counts fall within the law.

“The statute reads that if the crime offends common sensibilities, then the person is guilty. These acts offend reasonable sensibility,” Cameron said.

“The statute says that once the baby leaves the mother that the baby should be treated with dignity as a human being. That if they die, they should be disposed of with dignity. It is clear that Dr. Gosnell didn’t do that,” Cameron said.

“Cameron said that there are three signs that have to be present.

“It’s an either or. There has to be a beating heart and there has to be breathing. There also has to be voluntary movement,” Cameron said, “Even one of the doctors testified that they saw the baby breathing.”

In the case of “Baby B” and “Baby C,” Cameron argued that there was voluntary movement.

“The baby moved his arms. Lynda Williams said, ‘Hey look at this,’ as she called people to witness what she was doing,” Cameron said. “Williams pulled the baby’s arms and the baby pulled back.”

“That’s voluntary movement,” Cameron said.

“In the case of ‘Baby A’, Cameron said a clinic worker saw the baby move and breathe.

“It was a repeated course of conduct. Dr. Gosnell acted recklessly and with no regard for the safety of the women or the babies,” Cameron said. . . .

The details revealed during the trial have left Americans following the charges horrified. For example, clinic worker Ashley Baldwin said Gosnell snipped the neck of many babies who could have lived.

The details of another instance are recorded in the grand jury report.

One report: “The baby had precipitated (emerged from the mother) when the doctor was not in the clinic. Lynda Williams (another clinic staff member) placed the baby in a basin on the counter where the instruments were washed and called the doctor to come.”

The details build: Baldwin heard an infant’s cry, and saw the baby move on the country. Estimated the baby’s length at 12 inches.

Gosnell arrived and all that soon stopped. “He snipped the neck, and said there is nothing to worry about, and he suctioned it,” came the testimony.

The report also records the procedure for what would happen to the babies who were born when Gosnell was not at the clinic.

If Gosnell was absent, his employees would kill viable babies. Ashley Baldwin saw Steve Massof slit the necks of babies that moved or breathed ‘five or 10″ times. Massof, repeating what he had been taught by Gosnell, told her that that it was standard procedure to cut the spine in all cases.

Baldwin told the grand jury that she witnessed the similar procedure on several other occasions. An exchange between the prosecutors and Baldwin is also recorded in the grand jury report.

Q: These larger babies, when Dr. Steve was there, did he ever – was he ever there when any of the larger babies precipitated?
A: Yes.
Q: Babies that would move?
A: Yes.
Q: So, Dr. Steve – what would Dr. Steve do with babies that moved?
A The same thing.
Q. The same thing. And how many time did you see Dr. Steve?
A: A lot. He told me that – don’t worry about it. They are not living. It is just a reaction.”

The grand jury report also says that after Steve Massof left the clinic, clinic worker Lynda Williams took over the task of slitting the baby’s necks after they were born. Former worker Kareema Cross said she later say Lynda Williams slit the neck of a baby (“Baby C”) who had been moving and breathing for approximately 20 minutes.

Gosnell had delivered the baby and put it on a counter while he suctioned the placenta from the mother. Williams called Cross over to look at the baby because it was breathing and moving its arms when Williams pulled on them. After playing with the baby, Williams slit its neck.

Marie Smith is another of Gosnell’s patients who almost died as a result of a botched abortion. Smith was 19 when she had an abortion at Gosnell’s clinic. Three days after the abortion, she developed a fever and lost consciousness at her mother’s house. She was taken to the emergency room where doctor’s discovered the cause of her infection.

“They showed me X-rays and said he [Gosnell] left an arm and a leg inside me. I almost died. I thought he knew what he was doing, but I guess I was wrong,” Smith told a reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer. . . .

Unlicensed medical school graduate Eileen O’Neill, Gosnell’s codefendant on murder charges, is reported to have given abortion drugs to clinic patients.

Lisa Dungee, a Gosnell clinic patient in 2009, testified to the court that O’Neill gave her the abortion pill before the end of the required 24-hour waiting period for an abortion and that she didn’t receive any pre-abortion counseling.

LifeNews.com reported that Dungee testified on the stand that, “When I came in to the facility, I already had my mind made up about what I wanted to do, so yes, I signed it,” Dungee said.

LifeNews also reported that Dungee didn’t deliver the four-week old baby until over 24-hours after taking the first abortion pill. The report says that O’Neill’s defense lawyer James Berardinelli has maintained that, “since Dungee did not actually expel her four-week baby until 24 hours after she took the first abortion pill, then the 24-hour waiting period had been observed.”

It was unclear whether the abortionist would testimony for himself.

WND reported earlier that the discoveries at Gosnell’s clinic were startling. A partial list reported by WND includes:

Rusty and filthy abortion equipment has been brought into the courtroom to document unsanitary conditions.

Medical records appear to have blood and other stains on them.
Gosnell’s staff acted as though they were doctors, even though some had little or no medical training.

Medications, including anesthetics, found in the office had expired years earlier.
A defense attorney blamed the woman, Bhutan immigrant Karnamaya Mongar, for her own death, since she left several blanks on her medical form. Prosecutors said she spoke little English and likely was unaware she needed to provide information.
Patients appeared to repeatedly get overdoses of drugs for their abortion procedures, including Mongar.

Photographs of the bodies of babies, revealed gaping wounds in the back of their necks. According to testimony, Gosnell or staff members routinely snipped their spinal cords to make sure they were dead. Operation Rescue said: “The babies were all intact and had the appearance of being partially mummified or dried. The brownish-black skin had shrunk as it dried, revealing the upper spinal column that authorities say was pierced with scissors in order to snip the spinal cords of newborn babies born alive during abortions by Gosnell.”

Photographs were introduced of babies’ feet, or even whole legs, Gosnell had preserved in jars. . . . . [Full Story]
