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:
“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.
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.”
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:

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.
