Rarely do I read something that shocks me so much that I am temporarily at a lost for word...that all I can do is shake my head and almost babble when someone asks me what's wrong...but I read something like that today. Kakunna over at Spermination Station posted about the so-called abortion mill that was finally shut down in Philly. I followed her link to the abortion mill article on Yahoo News and was stunned, shocked, and thoroughly disgusted by what I read.
Now y'all who are long time readers know I am *staunchly pro-choice but this situation in Philly goes beyond anything a pro-choicer can or will support. Due to a complete failure by the state oversight board, the abortion clinic operated by Dr. Kermit Gosnell has been running with no nurses and not a single certified OB-GYN on staff since 1989. It has been documented that Dr. Gosnell has allowed a 15 yr old high school student to administer anesthesia. He has also allowed his wife who is a cosmetologist to perform late term abortions. But, far more egregious than even these atrocities are the (at least) 7 cases where Dr. Gosnell sedated a woman to perform an abortion, induced labor, delivered a live baby, and then killed it with a pair of scissors to the back of the neck. Gosnell is being charged in those 7 cases with murder but **"His staff testified about "scores of gruesome killings" of infants born alive. "These killings became so routine that no one could put an exact number on them," the grand jury report said."
My heart breaks for those babies born alive and fighting. My heart also breaks for the women who went there, thinking they were going to a reputable clinic.The evil bastardGosnell actually kept baby body parts around. As far as I'm concerned, he wasn't a doctor but Gosnell was a serial murderer of the worst kind. After reading the article and doing a little googling about this myself, I can only come to one conclusion. Dr Gosnell is an evil, twisted bastard who deserves to rot in hell...or maybe he should be drawn and quartered...or strung up with a bunch of angry birds so he could be pecked to death... Oh dammit, I just can't come up with any punishment sufficiently vile for that evil bastard.
*I am pro-choice.
