How Many Dead Babies?

 

 

 

The trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell continues, although if you depended on television for your news or most major newspapers you would be almost completely ignorant of that fact.  Here is some testimony from yesterday:

 

When Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore pressed the 53-year-old West for specifics about the incident, West struggled to answer, clearly uncomfortable with the memory.

“I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien,” West testified, telling a judge and Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas jury that the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.

West said she saw the child, whose face and features were not yet completely formed, lying on a glass tray on a shelf and she told a co-worker to call Gosnell about it and fled the room.

During her two years working for Gosnell, West said she also saw patients deliver “specimens” in the toilet, which she made a co-worker remove, adding she called aborted fetuses “specimens” because “it was easier to deal with mentally.”

She also testified that she saw many women come in who looked like they were too far along in their pregnancies to have abortions.

Go here to Lifesite News to read the chilling rest.  In surveying the almost total media blackout of this case, Mark Steyn at National Review Online asks the relevant question:  How many dead babies?

So how many dead American babies does it take to make the news? I wrote two-and-a-half weeks ago about the U.S. media’s determination to ignore a story that’s inconvenient to their biases. But, given the gun-banners’ ceaseless grief-feasting on Sandy Hook, at some point doesn’t the corpse count in Philadelphia merit maybe, oh, a thousandth of the attention?

He also claimed he saw about 100 babies born alive and then ‘snipped’ with surgical scissors in the back of the neck, to ensure their ‘demise’.

That’s from a story about Gosnell’s Pennsylvania abattoir in the Daily Mail, a British newspaper doing the job American media won’t do. Headline:

’Fetuses And Blood All Over The Place’: Medic’s Graphic Account Of ‘Beheading Live Babies’ At Abortion ‘House Of Horrors’ In Philadelphia

More dead baby testimony:

There an 18-to-24-inch baby, who did not yet have eyes, was lying in a clear glass pan, she recalled in horror. It was “screeching, making this noise” that “sounded like a little alien,” she said. It “really freaked me out,” she said, causing her to leave the room.

Sorry it “freaked you out,” but as the Pundette comments:

“Making this noise” “like an alien”? That’s called crying. It’s what human babies do when they’re in distress, in this case, the ultimate distress. The “aliens” here are the inhuman monsters who caused that distress.

So . . . if a baby screams during an outside-the-uterus “abortion,” does it make a sound? Or, to put it another way, if an abortionist goes on trial for murdering infants, but the media refuses to cover it, is it really happening?

The U.S. media’s unanimous agreement to see no evil is sick and totalitarian. A very small consolation is that, with news judgments like these, the wretched American press is doing a pretty good job of sawing through its own neck.

  • This is too horrible for words.

    Thank you for covering this. Dear God…

  • Amazingly, most people in society seem pretty comfortable with abortion and homosexuality. Many people, in fact, have become ardent proponents of these practices. America has changed dramatically within several decades; actually within the lifetime of many people alive now. These last several decades have seen an enormous acceleration of liberalism.

  • I agree with the observation but I wonder if it isn’t a natural result of hyper-individualism.

    The most common idea I hear expressed, at least with regards to abortion and homosexuality, is “I wouldn’t do it but whose to say…”

  • It’s so sickening, and I agree with David. “Who are you to judge” is the phrase that most people seem to utter when talking about most things. I’ve seen, in more than one comment section, people say that Jesus is non-judgmental & He wouldn’t be upset with abortion. Most people forget that He said, “Go and sin no more.” And I believe that most people don’t even think about sin anymore. I was at the doctor’s office, leaving the building with my kids. There was a woman walking near us. I was talking to my son, but he was 10 feet ahead of me. I said, “Don’t lie, it’s a sin.” And she gave me a funny look. The bizarre thing is that Kermit Gosnell is being ignored, and Christians are on the “Extreme Terrorist” list.

  • Forty years ago on April 9th I lost our third child. I still have all the admittance and dismissal papers from that experience. I remember how sad and weak I felt and was in a state of loss. The nurse on charge(and I will never forget her, Miss Bell) was very cold and heartless. “Is this your first?” “No it is my third”. Well settle down, you got two kids, you can always have more.” That experience was very painful both physically and mentally. I had already picked out names, Jennifer or Matthew. The baby was clearly a baby. It wasn’t a blob of protoplasm. I know it is in heaven as I “baptized it with baptism of desire”. When I asked what they did with the remains, she said, “it wasn’t anything anyway”. They threw in the garbage. I don’t know how anyone could deliberately kill their own. I would take every baby. I would find a home for them all or they could live here. And I have done that over the years. Yes I went on to have a lovely family of six, but I can never forget that little tiny person they threw in the garbage. My husband and I cared for many children over the years and opened our home to unwed mother’s. I have sat with these young women through childbirth and watched as they gave their babies up. Am I like not ok? When I read these stories of these butchers I actually feel sick. I will never understand.

  • I cant read this without wanting to throw up…

  • “I agree with the observation but I wonder if it isn’t a natural result of hyper-individualism.”

    I don’t know about that. Individualism is the favorite boogeyman of many a Catholic. But what about the hyper-collectivism of the “your child belongs to the community” crowd? Many of that crowd have supported such activities.

    No. I think the source of the problem is found in Genesis 3.

  • Kristen Powers, “Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven’t heard about these sickening accusations? It’s not your fault. […]”

    Your question is vital: “How many dead babies?” Let’s ask our pastors and our bishops and the cathlicks that vote democrat because of the lie that the GOP would cut their entitlement/welfare money . . . Howze that working for you now that Obama has finally put up a budget?

    Note to Kristen Powers, It’s the fault of politicized (read liberal democrat) catholic educators, hierarchy, clergy and their subversions of social justice teachings . . . And, all the MSM (and the Murdoch empire) 24/7 waving 20 little, bloody shirt, er, undocumented democrats, er, gay marriage, er, global warming . .. .

  • Ugh . . . I do not know how you can rationalize this in any way, shape, or form. My stomack churns at the horror of what Ms. West said happened!

  • My heart is just split right in two, for the mothers and the babies.

  • This is such a blatant failure on all levels. It is unspeakable.

  • Something diabolical is going on inside the upper levels of govt. They ignored all this. There is much more to this than your worst nightmare.
