GRUESOME BABY MURDERS: Where is the outrage?
Errol C. Baptist, M.D., F.A.A.P.
January 23, 2011
Kermit Gosnell, M.D., an abortionist in
, the City of Philadelphia, PA , was arrested and charged by a Grand Jury last week for murdering 7 babies who were born alive, by mercilessly killing them shortly after birth. The Philadelphia DA Seth Williams, said that ‘there were bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses, scattered throughout the building. ” Williams said that Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord.” He had also killed hundreds of other babies born alive. Many mothers had their bowels and wombs perforated, and others became septic and even died. There was outrage over this carnage that took place at an abortuary over a period of over 30 years. And rightly so. Brotherly Love
However, there was no outrage over the babies who were killed before they were born. These aborted babies would have had their heads crushed, their limbs torn piece by piece, their intestines pulled out, and their lives snuffed out by the pairs of forceps, the pairs of scissors and the knives of this monster. Did the grand jury, the DA, the media express outrage over those killings as well? These pre-born babies were also ALIVE before they were killed by the abortionist.
There was a deafening silence. The only peaceful voices of protest came from Christian groups. The National Abortion Rights Action League President Nancy Keenan stated that politicians who wanted to cut public tax payer funding of abortions “are out of touch with our country’s values and priorities.” Dayle Steinberg, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Southern Pennsylvania, in The Philadelphia Inquirer, said that abortion was a “highly restricted procedure.” She is right only if you say that the ban on partial birth abortion (where the baby’s skull is punctured and the brain suctioned out, while only the head is in the birth canal and the rest of the body dangles out) and the ban on born alive abortion (where the baby is left to die or crushed to death after premature induction of birth) constitute what the abortion industry considers to be a great restriction on their right to kill innocent infants in what should be their safest abode: the womb of their mothers. She went on to say that “these restrictions caused women to delay abortion procedures, often into the second trimester, where it becomes a higher medical risk and more expensive.” You can come to your own conclusions on this soul-less statement.
When the Illinois Senate Judiciary Committee voted to ban born alive abortions, one Senator voted against it saying, ‘what we are doing here is to create one more burden on women, and I can’t support that.” The bill to ban this monstrous act was signed into law nationally only on
August 5, 2002. Lest we forget, remember again that born alive abortion was legal prior to that.
Also before our memories fade, let us not forget that the Supreme Court of the
, in all its wisdom, deemed partial birth abortion (PBA) legal on United States June 28, 2000. (Stenberg vs Carhart) It took a long campaign from the pro-life movement, and a change in the composition of the Supreme Court for this dastardly act to be ruled illegal on April 18, 2007by the same Court. (Gonzalez vs Carhart)
There is also another telling indictment of our society, our culture and our values. What is a baby worth? How upset are we as a nation that hundreds of babies were killed after they were born? Where are the hurried Press Conferences by our politicians, quick to assign blame for anything that suits them? Where are the Television media talk show hosts, the pundits, the experts on everything under the sun, when we need them? Where are the media symposia that drag on for days to analyze other senseless killings and to assign blame? The SEVEN dogs killed over two years ago by a famous NFL quarterback drew more attention than the 7 babies PLUS the hundreds of other babies killed by this monster in an abortuary.
Roe vs Wade and Doe vs
Boltonwritten into our laws by our Supreme Court on January 22, 1973(38 years and 1 day ago) guaranteed that babies would be legally killed for all NINE months of pregnancy, with the blessings of our courts, our doctors, our political class, our intelligentsia, and our silence. All our involved medical societies and all relevant medical specialty groups support abortion in all its forms. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which had submitted an amicus brief opposing the Partial Birth Abortion Act (which you must note, banned the procedure), described the Court’s decision banning PBA as "shameful and incomprehensible," ignorant of medical consensus, and chilling for the medical profession.
Who will stand up for these children? Where are our consciences? Why do we not get involved in trying to stop this ongoing carnage? A fog has descended on the consciences of people everywhere.
There is a big game today. Everything else will be put on hold, even long after the game is over. On hold – until we hear about the next act of carnage. The chances are even greater that it will not even be reported. Read the Gospels of Matthew and Luke: “for in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark.” In our ultra modern “smart-everything” age we do not see the rising and murky waters of evil around us.
This is a wake-up call. Wake up before it is too late for the many more lives that will be destroyed in their earliest stages. “God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes. – Catechism of the Catholic Church 2271.
Jesus said: “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say unto you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.” Matthew 18:10.
