Media Finally Noting Gosnell Trial

Few have heard about the trial of abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell. His pre-occupation was to thwart major abortion rules, and get around the pitfalls of killing more babies.  Gosnell has the most horrific serial murder trial of an abortion doctor–ever.

“Zero” stories were originally done on Gosnell’s murder trial. Only lately has the mainstream media given a hint they may be watching. Casey Mattox, an attorney with the pro-life legal group Alliance Defending Freedom, noticed all the empty benches upon entering the courtroom.

Most of the media continues to ignore the multiple murder trial of Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortionist accused of killing a Nepalese immigrant and at least seven babies. They were born alive and murdered with scissors. Gosnell’s employees have testified the babies screamed and flinched when Gosnell and his team snipped their spines, painfully ending their lives.

Gosnell’s House of Horrors

So far, only thee of Gosnell’s employes have pleaded guilty to third-degree murder. Time in prison would likely be 20-40 years.

Even though almost nothing is heard from the media about Gosnell, they know what he’s doing. Perhaps the reason why they aren’t covering Gosnell, is unlike people shocked by Gosnell’s crimes, likely media knows enough about the abortion industry to realize Gosnell never has been an exception for an abortionist.

Many horror stories have come to light. One employee described hearing a baby’s scream during an abortion: “I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien.” Eventually, this facility became so busy another worker, Stephen Massof (unlicensed) remarked, “I felt like a fireman in hell. I couldn’t put out all the fires.” He described using medical scissors to jab babies’ necks to kill them. Assisting Gosnell in “snipping” spinal cords, he said it is “literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body.”

Another Gosnell worker testified she took photos of baby “A”, which had been delivered alive into a toilet, where she cut the baby’s throat. Prosecutors specifically described dozens of jars of severed baby feet saved in the clinic. Gosnell continually provided abortions after the 24-wk cutoff for legal abortions. In her opening statement, D.A. Joanne Pescatore actually joked the jars of feet were some kind of bizarre “trophy” Gosnell kept.

Kristen Hawkins (LifeNews) goes into gruesome details of Gosnell’s ‘abortuaries’ found here in the Grand Jury Report.

Tip Of The Iceberg

The real problem—Gosnell is not likely alone in his methods of abortion. So far, he’s been the only one caught. No one knows fully what’s been done behind closed ‘abortuary’ doors.

A typical method of abortion done in the second trimester, is described by Warren Hern out of Boulder, Colorado. It is the Suction Curettage. The abortionist inserts tubing attached to a suction machine into the uterus, which rips apart the fetus’ body—literally pulled apart by the force of suction. Later, on a table, the dismembered parts of the fetus are reassembled to ensure they have all the pieces.

At 21 weeks, Hern says the procedure is different. Fetal tissues are more difficult to dismember. A Mayo scissors is normal for decapitation and dismembering. With the inserted cannula, the baby will start to struggle, turn, and twist away. The tiny body is violently twisted by rotating the cannula. For a small moment the baby seems as if it might be wrung out like a dishcloth—twisted and squeezed. It crumples and is sucked up by the cannula.

Later, Hern began first-trimester procedures, and eventually took on the ‘second-tris’. He testified seeing over 100 babies born alive who had their necks snipped. Killing a newborn is illegal and shocking to witnesses. However, just days earlier it’s perfectly legal, as long as the baby is still in utero.

A number of clinic workers, doctors, and former abortionists have broken silence and talked about children denied medical care after being born alive. In fact, one would be hard-pressed not to find a doctor who had not seen a baby born alive not killed prematurely, or left to die without any care.

Abortion Can Be  Done Immediately After Fertilization

Going one step further, how would one feel being burned alive in utero by saline solution, or any one of the concoctions derived for early delivery such as Morning After Pills (MAPs)?

If 24 weeks is arbitrarily used as a cut-off for abortion legality, what about those younger infants? Many consider 20 weeks the time when an infant can feel pain. This was not known 25 years ago. Will we find out infants can feel pain at 10 weeks? At one? What will we know in 25 years?

What about all those discarded fertilized embryos so easily destroyed by all methods of contraception—even the Pill?  The Pill can use a purposely-made inhospitable uterus for abortion, easiest of all.

May GOD have mercy on our souls!
