I hadn’t heard anything about the Gosnell trial until yesterday. When I caught up with it, and learned about the dude and what he’d been doing, I was sickened. And what’s even more sad is that the major media outlets aren’t making a peep about it. Here are the numbers:
Instead of writing my own piece about the horrors that have been going on, I’ll just link to all the articles I’ve seen floating around. This is an outrage, and people need to know about it.
Here’s an article from the Atlantic: Why Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s Trial Should Be a Front Page Story.
Here’s Trevin Wax’s blog on the Gospel Coalition website: 8 Reasons for the Media Blackout on Kermit Gosnell.
Russell Moore wrote a piece called Kermit Gosnell and the Gospel.
Joe Carter writes 9 Things You Should Know about the Gosnell Infanticide and Murder Trial.
This article, by Harvard Law graduate Lea Singh, echoes much of my sentiment about abortion:
Is it just me, or is there something sickly schizophrenic about a society that huffs and puffs in outrage at the killing of a baby in the light of day, but quietly supports it when it happens in the darkness of the womb? We are talking about the very same baby here, at the exact same moment of gestation, the only difference being the location of the demise. If we can kill a baby within the womb, why not outside of the womb? Viable babies are being put to death in late-term abortion clinics all over the United States, perhaps some in Canada. We call it “abortion” but in the light of day, these actions clearly are “murder”.
The abortion pandemic proves that the “Enlightenment” perhaps wasn’t so enlightening after all; that the modern experiment is a sham; and that despite the innumerable scientific developments and technological advances, human beings are still not much different than our racist white-American ancestors; brute beasts, tainted by sin, depraved of mind, and in desperate need of a Savior.
Take heart, pro-lifers. The dark landscape of abortion is gradually changing, thanks to ultrasound.
Abortion workers are turning pro-life, Al Mohler notes in his blog, NewsNote: Mugged by Ultrasound.
Daleiden and Shields tell of Paul Jarrett, a doctor who did leave the business after performing 23 abortions. Jarrett explained why: “As I brought out the rib cage, I looked and saw a tiny, beating heart . . . and when I found the head of the baby, I looked squarely in the face of another human being—a human being that I just killed.”
