Several years ago, Philadelphia police and the DEA raided the medical clinic of a Philadelphia physician named Kermit Gosnell. Law enforcement raided Gosnell’s clinic because he was running a pill mill—he’d write prescriptions for painkillers and other drugs for a fee. In addition to finding evidence that he was making a fine living helping people get addicted to legal opioids, the officers discovered the remains of about 100 babies in a freezer.
Those babies got there because they were the side effect of late term abortions, up to 24 weeks, that Gosnell was legally performing. Except, those babies were not always born dead as the result of the procedure; several were born alive. Gosnell’s favorite way of ensuring a successful outcome was to insert a pair of scissors in the back of the baby’s neck and snip the spinal cord.
Sorry for the graphic description, but it’s necessary for what follows.
Those babies were born alive, and the State of Pennsylvania decided that Dr. Gosnell was guilty of murder.
That’s what should happen when someone decides to fulfill the objective of an abortion, when the target comes out alive. They should be found guilty of infanticide. And the vast majority of Americans feel the same way.
But over the last four weeks, Americans have been subjected to a peeling back of the curtain that Democrats have held over their views on abortion for the last 45 years. Democrats are OK with infanticide. Yep. They are OK with killing a baby once it comes out of the womb.
We saw that with Ralph Northam when he talked about how doctors and the mother would “discuss the options” when a baby that was supposed to be aborted somehow came out alive. We saw that with the Democrats in the New York state assembly applaud a bill allowing abortion up to the moment of birth. We saw that with Vermont passing the same type of legislation.
And we saw that when the US Senate couldn’t reach the 60 vote threshold for cloture for Senator Ben Sasse’s bill that would require medical care be given to these babies who survive a late term abortion. This bill failed a cloture vote 54-43. Only three Democrat Senators, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Doug Jones of Alabama, and Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, voted to save the lives of innocent little babies.
The rest of the Democrats stood in the well of the Senate and lied about this bill. They said it would restrict a woman’s access to abortion. Really? The title of the bill referred to Babies Born Alive After Surviving an Abortion. How does that restrict access?
The Dems said that it was a burden on the most vulnerable. Uh, I don’t know about you, but a baby gasping for air once it’s born is pretty damn vulnerable.
Even my pro-choice, rabidly pro-Planned Parenthood funding friends agree. The Democrats have gone too far in moving the window for acceptability.
It is not OK to kill babies. It is monstrous. And a 17 point swing to the pro-life side in the last four weeks shows that most Americans agree!
Finally, the veil has been removed from Democrats. They don’t care about women. They don’t care about babies. They worship Death, and will celebrate it in any way they can.
Remember this in 2020, and pray for the Democrats.
