Weren't You A Baby Once Too?
"What happened? Now that the harsh truth has been made known, does a living baby making it halfway, or in some cases all the way, out of the birth canal before he or she is killed suddenly demand a stricter sentence than merely tossing a child into a biohazard bag in the first trimester?
What exactly do Americans think goes on inside an abortion clinic? Do those who approve of destroying the unborn still believe the lie that “non-viable” means “not living”? And based on what we now know, isn’t it time to admit that the very essence of life, regardless of the stage of development, establishes the viability pro-choicers insist is absent inside the womb?
Like it or not, Kermit Gosnell has forced America to secretly wonder whether “reputable abortion clinics” on occasion dispose of live babies. Because, after all, logic does dictate that out of 60 million aborted children, many more than those at the Women’s Medical Society had to have been born alive. After touring Kermit Gosnell’s clinic, how those cases are handled is no longer a mystery.
What America must now grapple with is this: even if spinal cords are not snipped, do we as a nation approve of tiny ones being subjected to the excruciating death of being burned alive with saline, shot through the heart with a lethal dose of digoxin, or brutally dismembered with suction machines and scalpels?
And after taking that into consideration, shouldn’t we ask ourselves whether the administration of proper dosages of anesthesia by properly trained clinicians in clean operating rooms funded with federal monies makes feticide more palatable?
Either way, the truth is that America has pretty much spent 40 years attempting to ignore a holocaust in our midst. Many Americans have struggled to believe that the smoke rising from the crematorium is nothing to be concerned about. And now, astonishingly enough, it’s the cries of those Kermit Gosnell thought he silenced speaking from the grave that have roused from its stupor a nation that chose to ignore the murder of 60 million of its children."
