Dr. Gosnell’s Madness
I recall the first time that I read of the atrocities which took place in Dr. Gosnell’s abortuary. (Yes, I realize that is not an English word, but for the purpose of this article, it helps to shed light upon the indiscreet nature of the man and the infanticide madness that lives and breathes behind closed doors). As of this most recent week, Dr. Gosnell is now going to trial for the terrible crimes against human dignity and humanity that were performed in his filth ridden clinic, and thankfully, he is being charged with murder. Here is a link to current situation and all that it entails, from the New York Times.
To be certain, there is nothing more pervasively and inherently evil, than taking the life of a child that survives a botched abortion. Upon first reading this story, something struck the proverbial cord so deeply within me, that, in turn, brought about the gambit of emotions. Everything from anger to sadness overtook every inch of my heart and soul. Dr. Kermit Gosnell was charged with criminal activities, and the revelations that sprang forth in that madness and maniacal story, made the hair on the back of America’s neck stand up and salute. To be honest, this man, is a madman, but what he did makes abortion look like a crazy, butchering practice, beyond the fact that abortion snuffs out life no matter how it is achieved. To say the least, hoarding scientific trophies in his office of those babies that he butchered makes me shudder to my core. The question it stamped upon my mind, though, was this one: “Is this a typical abortion clinic?” Is it? Is this the norm? How do we, as Americans, really know? Have any Americans reading this, ever been to an abortion clinic? I have not, nor do I intend to, during this lifetime, if it can be avoided.
In addition to this, could the state of Pennsylvania be legally culpable in this matter? I cannot say for certain, but consider this article from American Thinker in 2011. It could easily be said that there is a distinct possibility that they are.
Upon reading some of the articles about this online, several struck me to share. One in particular passed the muster, and here is a link to Michelle Malkin’s article on the subject. Please note that Michelle has posted a complete PDF for download at the bottom to see the full scope of details of what this entails.
Do take a moment to learn more about why we need to end this practice in America. How many other doctors do this and worse, daily? That, would be the question of the century.
When considering abortion and its lingering effects on the lives of those who ‘choose’ this path, I think about certain family members, one of my close friends, and people that I don’t even know, but who are living with the consequences of “choice.” Truly, I think about my friend the most, when thinking about abortion. What haunts me most about that, is the fact that I know, personally, how “choice” has devastated my friend’s life, since then. I think about the constant inner turmoil that dwells within her heart, at times, leaving her unable to forgive herself. I think of my friend’s loss, because now due to “choice,” her life is now limited to only the one natural child she has.
Then, my own Aunt (now deceased) comes to mind, who had a botched abortion at 15 and never was able to have children, at all, after that. I remember the pain that existed for my aunt, and due to her parent’s “choice,” her life was never the fulfillment it should have been for her. The harm done during that poorly performed procedure, was never to be more realized than in a childless home. Her parents forced her into this “choice” out of their own shame and the stigma of that time in our society, sadly.
Then, I think of how many other women must anguish over the same decisions and the forever, heart altering consequences of their own struggles with it throughout their lives. Many, who make this decision, hide in drugs, alcohol, and other methods of escape from facing who they are and the choice they made. Conscience is, indeed, a powerful thing for those who have one.
Often, it is easy to wonder, at times such as this, what it is that leads someone to believe that it is okay to terminate a pregnancy or that it is necessary. The person making this type of decision, intrinsically, already knows that it is wrong in their own heart, yet out of selfishness, they “choose” the self to be more important than the life of the future child. If we could ask, the 50+ million people, who are not here now because of this atrocity, if they would rather live or die, it is certain that life would have been chosen more often than the alternative.
Ultimately, what seemingly goes unnoticed and therefore under-discussed, is the breast cancer risk issue surrounding abortion. Abortion is proven and factually studied to produce a 50% increase in breast cancer risk for the woman who has the abortion. There are several entities that have studied this and are completely behind these facts. This risk is increased with each abortion by the same proportion. I, personally, have witnessed one of my own family members, who had an abortion, also, have breast cancer at a young age. This lead to chemotherapy, radiation therapy and a full mastectomy. This is alarming. It is appalling that a pregnancy is not referred to as a life, and it is even more disturbing to fail to disclose all the risks which are health related to the person there, choosing to take a life by terminating their own pregnancy. Here is a link which confirms the claims within this paragraph. http://www.abortionbreastcancer.com/The_Link.htm
Clearly, from all of my own personal experiences with others, who have dealt with the grief, the agony, the morality issues, the fears of “Oh no, what have I done?”…..the knowledge that they will never know that other person, because they, themselves, robbed their own personal futures of knowing their offspring, all takes a huge toll on the would be mother’s heart. Ultimately, no one really tells them that they are killing their child. Instead the claim is that it is just a bunch of cells. That is a bunch of hogwash. No one reminds them of the harsh reality of what they are truly giving up, the opportunity to know that other person who is a part of them and will think more highly of them than any other person. Instead they choose to terminate the life, and then are left to grieve and wallow in the anguish, apathetically.
Our nation is, truly, no longer the nation that it once was. Why did America take the path of the greater of two evils in the decisions of the courts relating to fetal infanticide a.k.a. abortion? Why has this atrocity continued with no change throughout the course of time? Why is it that quality of life and sanctity of life are not used together in the same sentence?
During President Elect Obama’s campaign, he stated, “I have two daughters and if either of them made a mistake, I wouldn’t want them punished with a baby,” in a newspaper article in the Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) from March 2008. To say the very least, I could hardly believe that he would consider a child – punishment, especially his own grand child. Of course, I do realize that this is Barack Hussein Obama. He believes himself to be a higher thinker, and so burdens/punishment like kids, wow, who has the time? Honestly, it is difficult not to wonder, if each day as Michelle goes through her life as a mother and Barack, as a father, does she/does he feel the punishment of having children, or are they only punishment when a person makes poor decisions out of wedlock, too early?
In Ronald Reagan’s book, Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation, written in 1983, with a second printing, the edition available to me from 1984, there is a quote that tells truth. The quote is by Malcom Muggeridge, where he says this, “Either life is always and in all circumstances sacred, or intrinsically of no account; it is inconceivable that is should be in some cases the one, and in some the other.” Mr. Muggeridge hit the nail on the head. The reality is, there are laws that bring about charges for manslaughter or murder for an unborn child, should a person accidentally or purposefully kill an unborn child. If someone murders the pregnant mother, in some states the murderer is guilty of taking two lives, and if a car accident happens, the manslaughter charge is also for two lives, the viable and the inviable. So, how is it only okay for a woman to choose, for herself, to end her child’s life from within her womb? The right to choose should not come after a child is in the uterus, but before conception, through conscious planning. It should never come to the kind of genocidal practices that were being performed in Dr. Gosnell’s office in Philadelphia.
Society is all about saving the species of animals such as the field mouse, or even from climate change, the polar bear. Why, then, is it socially acceptable for a woman to be more important, than her unborn child? Why is it that people push mothers into killing their offspring in order to keep from it negatively impacting the mother’s life? Why is the mother’s life so much more important than that of the helpless, defenseless baby within her? It is not, not by any account, but that is the way that it works. Oh, this is going to ruin ‘your’ life, ‘you’ have to get rid of it, and the sooner the better, is the rallying cry. Why is that? Life is either sacred, or it is not. Women do not matter more than the life they carry, but according to the law of the land, it would seem they do. Success in life, with no strings is not more important than a little human being who needs the protection of our society, instead of a society who is all about killing the most helpless among us.
We, as Americans, are given our rights by our Creator, not by government. God sanctioned life, and babies are a gift from God. Though many in our society do not believe in God any longer, and since this has happened the morality of our society has plummeted to the depths of depravity. The most innocent among us deserve our perseverance on this matter. They, too, deserve life and a right to life.
Meanwhile, there is still time if anyone personally knows someone considering this, there are other options…options that don’t leave the would be mother knowing she killed her own child, and then having to live with that reality from the moment realization sets in hard. There are so many people who can give a child a wonderful life. Please always think of the other soul who is being robbed of life, of the opportunity to offer something to this world, and a chance to love and live and know their family and God.
Our country should never have legislated Abortion. Our nation is not a human, and nations are punished by God, in this lifetime not at judgment. Our Founders knew this well. God’s wrath will not sleep forever. We must unite now, as there is no time to waste.
Well, folks, let that thought rest on your heart, and have a great week, this 4th week of January 2011. Let the God of Founders move you to a new stead, and may their will for our nation settle on your bones, like that of a true Modern Day Patriot.
