The murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell largely is being ignored by the mainstream media, even in the face of grisly testimony, such as what we heard yesterday. Life News reports: ...a former employee described how she heard a baby scream during a live-birth abortion. Abortion clinic employee Sherry West described an incident which "really freaked (her) out" and related to the jury how she heard a child who was born alive following an abortion scream.
One of the most harrowing, disturbing, and just plain sinfully wicked incidents in my recent memory. In the Bible children are recognised as belonging to that group of vulnerable people who deserve particular care and protection – is to offend grievously against the One who has a special regard for the vulnerable. In fact, it is, as Jesus said, better to be plunged heavily weighted into the sea, than to face the justice of the God who is Love, for being cruel to a child. The fires of hell await these servants of Satan.
In the early settlement of the west, hunters were paid a bounty for killing wolves and got paid for the pelt. Now wolves are protected but Utah just started a bounty program for coyotes. You are payed for the pelt. It dawned on me reading this that late-term abortions would cease immediately if the abortionist had to supply the "clump of cells" to be paid.
Obama uses the families of the 20+ children killed in Newtown (and don´t misunderstand me; that ripped my heart out) in order to destroy our right to self-defense but aborted babies are a woman´s God-given right.
I hope there is a special place in hell for abortionists and those that assist them. I also posted this on FB and twitter. People, we need to constantly do that with all issues. We need to use social media to fight the good fight and enlighten and educate our friends.
The courts have already ruled on late term abortions. It is still not a human being or a baby. It is just an unwanted clump of cells that is being detached from a woman´s body and disposed of. Sort of like a cancer. It is the woman´s choice to rid herself of these unwanted cells. So sayeth the almighty courts.
When you get away from the basic philosophy behind abortion and focus on the details of the process by which the abortion is carried out, you tacitly endorse the premise that abortion is acceptable.
When you buy into this alleged witness’s medically-preposterous story of an “18 to 24 inch baby whose facial features were not fully formed” and use such arrant nonsense as emotional ammunition to attack abortion practically, you are undermining your intellectual credentials to oppose abortion philosophically.
I suggest you stay on the philosophic plane and leave the emotional to the tabloids.
As to my own credentials: I am an abortion doctor.
I agree #1. The MSM are monsters too for ignoring the story. The Philadelphia Inquirer is doing coverage because its a local story. What about the networks and AP? (Look, over there -- same-sex marriage)
#21, I will assume you are serious rather than a mere provacateur. Your argument may be heartless, but it is an argument nonetheless: Babies in the womb are subhuman and don´t deserve to have their lives or persons shown respect and compassion. If they feel pain and terror, it really isn´t the kind of pain and terror that the rest of us feel. This is the same argument that was made to defend the heartlessness shown to blacks in the old South, the treatment of whom I´m sure you and Dr. Gosnell take great but hypocritical umbrage. Proud and arrogant though you are now, may God have mercy on your soul because, if the history of terrorized innocents is any guide, your memory will be a vile footnote in the story of mankind and on your deathbed, when you face the horror that will come when you realize that it matters what is beyond, may you feel the terrified pain and loneliness that you have wrought.
As I have said over and over again. There is no need to fight these main stream media people, Obama, the liberal kooks, and the Hollywood weirdos Some how, the people in this country have become absolutely oblivious of any freedoms that we have ever had or every will have again. This country is gone. There is NO way to revive it again. Obama is going to see to that- he will never let us be a democracy again. We are a communist, socialist country and no matter what you write or say, that is the way it is and will be forever more. I am a conservative swimming upstream in rushing water, that cannot be slowed or stopped.
Thanks for posting this. Haven´t watched Fox too much since November, but Catholic Vote on Facebook has posted these heinous acts and the trial. People around Philly have been informed. God help us! IHLG
From a scientific standpoint, human life begins at conception, doesn´t it? Isn´t unique human DNA formed at that point? Women sometimes justify abortion by saying the fetus (or fertilized egg) is part of her body, just like skin cells or an organ like the appendix. But it really isn´t, is it?
Like pagans of biblical days, who sacrificed children to their god Molech, people sacrifice their unborn children on the altar of convenience. The methods used in olden days aren´t any more terrifying than the methods used today. Back then, babies were burnt alive. Today, spines are snipped, bodies mutilated and sucked out of the womb, chemicals are used to burn unborn children.
There is not a word strong enough to describe this horror!
Everybody is so (I can´t find a words strong enough)..... This is how our public leaders are conditioned. Media, politicians... It looks like I, as all of us on this thread, live in different world. Media (they use the word, personalities) freaks are feeding us garbage which in normal world makes people vomit. All their fair, balanced, "uncompromised" reporting, all their "dignity" end at the door of editorial meeting. I had heard the "right" words for over 40 years in former Soviet Union. Now I hear this rotten trash in America. Especially, in the last 10 years.
#21, Most abortion doctors don´t call themselves abortion doctors: they term themselves "sexual and reproductive health specialists" or "women´s health providers" or some such evasive formula. The fact that you put the word "abortion" without much circumlocution, means that you are willing to say what you do.
It is useless to talk about the abortion "philosophy" without talking about the details by which abortion is carried out. Philosophy itself is an attempt to make sense of what one has seen, heard, and done.
Philosophy without "the details" is like bread without flour, yeast and water, or a bicycle without wheels, handlebars and a seat. Such philosophy is an attempt to avoid making contact with embodied reality. Nobody objects to aborting a concept.
I have met people who were accomplices to abortion 20, 30, 40 years ago, but who have now set their faces agains killing. They are ex-abortionists: compassionate, enlightened, repentant. Firmly grounded in reality. May you join them: they are extraordinary people.
To combat abortion philosophically instead of emotionally, one must start with the pro-abortion philosophy, which has become clear and which was articulated by a woman in an article posted a few weeks ago: Yes it is a baby and no, we don´t care.
We choose to argue by starting with the baby that everyone agrees that it is, and to show what happens when you tear its limbs off and pierce it´s brain and snip its spine. The philosophy we espouse is that the woman´s discomfort in being asked to carry her child to term in NO WAY compares to the pain and terror that child is subjected to.
Not to mention that the baby no longer gets a life to live.
Nothing emotional about that. Simply a comparison.
Making abortion legal does not make it morally right, just like making gay marriage legal does not make it morally right. The moral decay of America is in it´s Stage 4 phase and the end result is the irreversable death of our once free country. It takes courage to change the things we can and now is the time to do something about it. Had enough yet?
The trial really isn´t about murdered born live late term babies it is about the death of one of the females who aborted ( don´t you call them mothers in my presence) Why should that cause a trial she was merely a late abortion herself. Such abortionists can and do profit by the infants death because they sell their cells and body parts to so called researchers. The price for a fully developed little one staggering-- up to 4,000 dollars and the females are merely producers of raw material and too dumb to profit too. Now the federal gov. is determined tax payers will cover the cost. Do you recall that some of our glorious progressives owned stock in Abortion clinics during Clinton´s rein?
Sorry, #21 but "abortion doctor" is the ultimate contradiction in terms. What you really mean, of course is baby-killer. And by the way, on a side note, I will never understand why posters such as #27 continue visiting conservative websites if they have already given up. Are they just trying to impress us with their "special" insight or allowing us all to wallow in their abject misery? Shouldn´t they all be hiding under the bed waiting for the end?
Abortion in the Liberal mind is equal only to their current definition " Pro-Life". They have sanitized the act of murder with a trite, obfuscation of the definition of the act of murder. That way they diminish LIFE, and can live within their mental pictures of what is actually killing a human being. A gross rationalization of the truth makes it all right in their world.
#21 "Dr" DeWilde, you are a murderer. Originally abortion was considered a crime against women, perpetrated by fathers who did not want children. I guess you do perform a service however, because most conservative women would never dream of having an abortion.
Abortion happens before the baby is born. It´s called murder when the baby is alive. The baby is a child but the word "baby" conjures images of a defenseless human being. Adults are supposed to protect these babies, not kill them. What kind of monsters are we becoming. Abortion is very acceptable now and 40 years ago is wasn´t. Who know what will be acceptable in another 40 years. There are too many women who have had abortions who will never be against abortion because what would that make them? It´s surprising how this trial is such a well kept secret.
Well, I´m an atheist (not the in-your-face kind - I have too much respect for the Judeo-Christian heritage of Western Civilization) but I find myself hoping that there IS a Heaven and a Hell (well, I´d settle for just a Hell) to accomodate this guy Gosnell.
Is the grievance industry trying to create racial Shroud of Turin? The Smithsonian wants to display the hoodie worn by Tayvon Martin the night he was shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. Really, is this what we need now? A modern-day abomination: a Turin Shroud for race-mongerers? Will this become a place of pilgrimage for people looking for reasons to hate?
Shortly after the Sandy Hook one Elementary School massacre in December 2012, I took to these pages to gently chide the NRA´s Wayne LaPierre for his proposal to install an armed policeman in every school. In March 2013 I participated in a CCW (Concealed Carry Weapon) class. In May I received my CCW permit. On that day this semi-retired septuagenarian (I, myself) became a citizen carrier. My appetite for sound, reliable news and information about 2nd Amendment issues and the technology and skills of gunnery continues
Informed consent is a big deal in health care. And it should be. (snip) Once a woman says she wants an abortion, medical standards and norms change. If the process of getting informed consent involves making the unknown, known, the process in the abortion industry is all about unknowing. When I regrettably and wrongly had an abortion many years ago, no one at Planned Parenthood explained anything to me -- and I mean nothing -- about my baby´s development. No one even showed me a picture of a 3-month old baby in the womb.
San Diego mayor and veteran Congressman Bob Filner is a serial molester of women who enjoyed immunity from exposure by his friends in the media who "pretty much knew" about his abuses but chose to ignore them as a non-story. We know this because a brave member of the San Diego media crowd has admitted it.(snip) Scorn is the appropriate response. The San Diego media deserves a big helping of humiliation over covering this up. There is no profession more conscious of prestige than the media. Just look at all the awards they give each other.
As a black conservative tea party activist, I am extremely excited about Bill O´Reilly´s recent series of commentaries and TV shows addressing the hypocrisy and exploitation by the American race industry that has and continues to devastate the black community. O´Reilly boldly called out all of the usual suspects: Sharpton, Jackson, the Congressional Black Caucus and Obama. Eric Holder and others on the left have been whining and arrogantly scolding us saying that we need an honest discussion about race in America.
How is the U.S. like Sweden? In its low murder rate. That is, if you include in the statistics only non-blacks in the U.S. legally.(snip)In round numbers, there are about 250 million non-blacks in the U.S. legally. So their murder rate is about 1.0 per 100,000, or the same as Sweden´s. A murder rate of 1.0 is in the same league as the Europeans who like to call us gun-crazy cowboys. But it´s not the "cowboys" who are doing the killing. (In fact, Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming have murder rates significantly lower than the U.S. average.
Poor lil´ Huma, croaks the liberal media. A wifey ensnared in her infamous husband´s sordid sexual adventures. Huma Abedin is a victim -- victimhood being a checkbox for libs and a handy excuse for anyone who runs afoul the law, stupid choices, indecency, laziness, Faustian deals with the devil, trumped-up racism, trumped-up homophobia, trumped-up xenophobia, real political corruption, hand-washing compulsion, and whatever else can be appended to victimhood. Poor lil´ Huma is a victim, all right. She´s a victim of her own self-willed choice; of a match made not much from kismet than cold calculation.
Remember when scientists and other truth-seekers used to get all riled up about the way the Catholic Church treated Galileo? The outcry was not over the fact that Galileo was a "peer-reviewed" researcher, and therefore beyond question. Quite the contrary: the argument was that, from the point of view of the quest for truth, no one, including the representatives of official orthodoxy and authority, ought to be regarded as beyond question. In the Michael Mann lawsuit against Mark Steyn and National Review, it is the "award-winning researcher" who is joining the fight for Church orthodoxy
Money can´t buy the kind of political boost Huma Abedin is receiving. Like her mentor Hillary Clinton, the stand-by-your-man strategy will be her gateway to widespread popularity and respect. Don´t feel sorry for the Democrats over losing a former rising star politician like Anthony Weiner, whose future is so hopeless that even the New York Times says it´s time to go. They have gained an even more promising candidate for high office. Huma Abedin is better-looking, better spoken, and more appealing than her role model.(snip)Although raised in Saudi Arabia, Ms. Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, a natural born American.
Much has been made of Obama´s impromptu crashing of the press briefing at the White House the other day to weigh in yet again on Trayvon Martin´s death. The reception of Obama´s discussion reminded me of the movie The King´s Speech, where the man who would be king of England had to give just one good speech, so all of England would feel comfort. As in the movie, I chuckled at the big deal made by "reporters" that the man who is supposed to be a great orator and "Leader of the formerly Free World" did so without his "blankie,"
Now we have proof that the current Obama-Holder campaign against stand-your-ground laws is nothing more than a pose intended to distract from their political problems, having whipped up a racialist fury and pushed prosecution of George Zimmerman. Although State Senator Barack Obama could boast of few legislative accomplishments, one thing he did do was co-sponsor a bill strengthening the Illionois stand-your-ground law. The Illinois Review writes: The Obama-sponsored bill (SB 2386) enlarged the state´s 1961 law by shielding the person who was attacked from being sued in civil court by perpetrators or their estates
Did the IRS intervene in Federal election campaigns for Congress? According to the Washington Times, U.S. Treasury investigative special agent Dennis Martel has uncovered a new example of political abuse. On March 9, 2010, Christine O´Donnell´s personal income tax records were illegally accessed by a Delaware public official. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) reports that a previously-undisclosed "back door" to the IRS computer system was used to invade the privacy of Christine O´Donnell´s tax records. Who knew? It turns out that state government criminal investigators can directly -- though illegally -- access IRS records through a "back door."
Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government. The author of two New York Times bestsellers on the threats to the Constitution, Levin hopes his latest, "The Liberty Amendments," out mid-August, will spark the state lawmakers to tap a rarely used Constitutional provision to institute measures that would brake President Obama´s use of executive orders, bar thousand-page laws and
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine. That’s a long way from how Abedin
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
Colin Powell has admitted to exchanging ´very personal´ emails with a Romanian diplomat but denies having an affair with the much younger woman after a hacker threatened to release their intimate messages. The 76-year-old retired general told the Smoking Gun that he met Corina Cretu, 45, roughly 10 years ago when she was working as an assistant to the president of Romania. She is now a member of the European Parliament. ´After I left the Department of State in January 2005 we stayed in touch via email,´ he told TSG.
In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine. The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife. In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement: “They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat.” She then said of the historic use of the n-word, “I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last
If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But
