Abortionist Kermit Gosnell sometimes joked about the late-term babies he was killing, saying one was so large he could “walk me to the bus stop.”
Today marks the 38th anniversary of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court travesty known as Roe v. Wade, when our nation’s highest court inexplicably ruled that state sanctioned slaughter of the most innocent was found in the previously unheard of right to privacy.
Over the intervening years, an estimated fifty-three million pre-born human babies have been killed — residing in what ought to be the safest place on Earth — the sanctuary of their mother’s uterus.
And just days before this commemoration, we read of the horrors perpetrated by Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, 69, whose filthy clinic was the site of the barbaric murder by scissors of at least seven newborns delivered alive. In over four decades of butchery, he callously killed countless babies. He is also charged in the death of a woman awaiting an abortion who overdosed on painkillers. Gosnell staffed his unsanitary clinic entirely with unlicensed personnel, including a high school student who prescribed medications and assisted in the gruesome procedures.
Prosecutors called the case a “complete regulatory collapse.” “Pennsylvania is not a Third World country,” the district attorney’s office declared in the graphic, 281-page grand jury report. “There were several oversight agencies that stumbled upon and should have shut down Kermit Gosnell long ago.”
Gosnell, who specialized in late-term abortions, “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, and eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord,” District Attorney Seth Williams said. Gosnell referred to it as “snipping,” prosecutors said. They charge he made approximately $1.8 million in one year alone performing the gruesome procedures.
