PUBLIC VOICE: Where is abortion outrage?

Farm Forum

Lately, the main street butcher of the “house of horrors” was found guilty of several charges, including murder. Kermit Gosnell, stooping to the lowest level of human behavior, slaughtered babies and butchered women.

Gosnell’s trial exposed the truth that many times babies’ lives are violently snuffed out outside the womb if the termination inside is not “successful.” Americans have known for a long time that one life ends at each abortion appointment, but they now must face the reality that mothers also are being maimed and murdered at these so-called “women’s health clinics.”

Gosnell delivered live, viable babies then stabbed their necks with scissors and cut their spinal cords simply because these babies were intended for abortion. He took advantage of minorities, immigrants and poor women — killing one young mother. He made millions of dollars committing illegal and late-term abortions in squalid and barbaric conditions, including unsterilized equipment, bloody floors, etc. The jury heard testimony about his jars of babies’ feet.

While most media avoided the trial, Gosnell’s horror show only gives a peek into what is actually happening in these facilities. Similar atrocities have been found elsewhere, such as in Delaware, where nurses left due to unsanitary conditions and numerous botched abortions. Exiting staff of another abortionist in Texas have documented how he would “twist the head off the neck” of a living viable baby.

Ironically, President Barack Obama became the first sitting president to speak at a Planned Parenthood event, closing his remarks by asking God to bless Planned Parenthood. By the way, Planned Parenthood is “awarded” over a million of your tax dollars each and every day for performing abortions.

Have Americans been brainwashed and coddled into believing that abortions in this country are safe simply because they are legal? Where is the outrage?
