Why the Gosnell trial shocks

Video:
The trial of an abortion provider in Philadelphia has made abortion
opponents angry that the case has not received more national attention.

By Jordan Sekulow and Matthew Clark, Published: April 12

In what can only be described as a “house of horrors,”
abortion provider Kermit Gosnell stands trial in Philadelphia, charged
with the grotesque murder of at least seven infants, allegedly born
alive after botched abortions only to be brutally killed moments later.

As this nearly month-long trial continues, it paints the stark
and unmistakably abhorrent reality of abortion. While the national mainstream media has been all but silent about this trial, the headlines coming from local media coverage have been morbidly graphic. Babies born alive and then allegedly killed in truly barbaric ways.

The details emerging from this trial are too graphic for us to
even put into words, yet our society allows this same unspeakable
torture of another human being to occur just so long as the baby is
still inside the womb.
The Gosnell trial in conjunction with a Planned Parenthood lobbyist’s recent admission that
the abortion giant has no issue with this life-ending practice is
lifting the veil of secrecy from an industry long shrouded from public
scrutiny.
The Planned Parenthood lobbyist testified against a
state law that would protect babies born alive after a botched abortion
from being left to die, or worse yet, killed. She was asked about
Planned Parenthood’s position on whether an infant born in this
situation should receive medical care, she repeatedly testified, “That decision should be between the patient and the health care provider.”
Public outrage ensued. Planned Parenthood later removed their opposition from the bill, essentially arguing that this “extremely unlikely and highly unusual” set of circumstances doesn’t really happen.
That’s just undeniably false. As Democrat strategist Kirsten Powers noted, “The Gosnell case suggests otherwise.
The
fact is this situation does occur. And is it really at all likely that
abortionists such as Gosnell are reporting this dastardly act? In fact,
such gruesome practices are often only made public by whistleblowers or,
in Gosnell’s case, a criminal trial.
But the question remains:
How can killing a newborn infant be illegal and shocking to the
collective conscience, yet ending that same life moments, days or weeks
before be perfectly legal and socially acceptable as long as the baby is
still in the womb? There is no logical answer.
Aside from how a
baby receives food and oxygen, what changes occur to make the baby human
out of the womb but something other than human the second before? Does
the baby’s brain magically begin activity; does his or her heartbeat
suddenly begin; does the baby abruptly begin moving on his or her own
after birth? No, of course not. A baby possesses all of these qualities
of life in utero.
Matthew and his wife are just days away from the
birth of their third son. Is his child any less human today than if he
had been born yesterday? While to those of us in the pro-life community
these have always been simple questions, the logical answers are now
becoming apparent to many others as well.
The horrific nature of the Gosnell trial puts this in perspective. When you understand how abortions are performed, you recognize the profoundly inhumane way these innocent infants are killed or mutilated during the course of an abortion.
You don’t have to be a person of faith to recognize the horror of abortion.
The
legal and societal sanctification of abortion is the greatest human
rights travesty of our time. It’s time for it to end. Every human
deserves the protection of the law and the right to life.
