Gosnell can't be ignored

My guess is that most Americans would not recognize the name Kermit Gosnell. Why? Because of the political agenda of the mainstream media.


Dr. Gosnell is now being tried on five counts of murder. The grand jury report reads like a horror story stating that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable babies in the third trimester of pregnancy – and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords. The report includes color photographs of the doctor’s work.

Until very recently, ABC and NBC hadn’t covered the Gosnell trial at all, and CBS had only one mention. This story should be front-page news and used to show the truth about abortion. However, this would not fit the left-wing pro death agenda. This case is so egregious and graphic that, if it were covered properly, it may change the minds of many Americans who now support abortions. This seems to be a risk the mainstream media is not willing to take.

Ironically, at the same time the trial goes uncovered, President Obama attended a Planned Parenthood Gala and promises continued millions of dollars in federal aid, stating “Planned Parenthood is not going anywhere,” assuring that Planned Parenthood will be able to continue to provide abortions at the rate of one every 94 seconds, or 333,964 annually.

President Obama concluded his remarks at the Planned Parenthood event by saying, “Thank you Planned Parenthood and God bless you.” As a Christian and a student of the Holy Bible, I can say emphatically and without reservation that God does not bless the murder of the innocent. He judges it.

Pray for America and our president!
