9 Things you should know about Kermit Gosnell Infanticide & Murder Trial

9 Things You Should Know About the Gosnell Infanticide and Murder Trial

Kermit Gosnell, 72, is an abortionist on trial in Pennsylvania for murder and infanticide. Here are 9 things you should know about the Gosnell case:

1. Gosnell was arrested in January 2011, charged with eight counts of murder: one patient who allegedly died under his care after a botched abortion, and seven infants supposedly born alive whose spinal cords Gosnell allegedly severed with scissors.

2. According to prosecutors in Philadelphia, Gosnell catered to minorities, immigrants, and poor women, and made millions of dollars over 30 years performing illegal and late-term abortions in squalid and barbaric conditions. Gosnell took extra precautions with white women from the suburbs, according to the grand jury report. He allegedly ushered them into a slightly cleaner area because he thought they would be more likely to file a complaint.

3. Women paid $325 for first-trimester abortions and $1,600 to $3,000 for abortions up to 30 weeks. The clinic took in up to $15,000 a day, said authorities. Although abortions after the 24th week are illegal, Gosnell allegedly aborted and killed babies in the sixth and seventh months of pregnancy and charged more for bigger babies.

4. According to the grand jury report, the clinic reeked of animal urine and the furniture and blankets were stained with blood. Medical instruments found in the practice had not been properly sterilized. State officials have failed to visit or inspect his abortion clinic since 1993. Prosecutors also claim that Gosnell is not certified in either gynecology or obstetrics.

5. Prosecutors say that none of Gosnell’s staff, including his wife, were licensed nurses or doctors and that a 15-year-old student performed anesthesia with potentially lethal narcotics.

6. A woman who worked for Gosnell testified that she was called back to a room at his abortion clinic in Philadelphia where the bodies of aborted babies were kept to hear one screaming amid a shelf-full of dead babies. “I can’t describe it,” says the woman. “It sounded like a little alien.” She says 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.

7. On January 31, 1998, a then 15 year old Robyn Reid sought an abortion from Gosnell’s clinic. Once she was in the clinic, though, Reid, an 87-pound teenager at the time, told Gosnell she changed her mind about the abortion. She claims Gosnell got upset, ripped off her clothes, restrained her, and repeatedly told her, “This is the same care that I would give to my own daughter.” Reid regained consciousness 12 hours later at her aunt’s home, with the abortion having been completed against her will.

8. Gosnell’s arrest and trial have received almost no coverage by the national media. During the early part of the trial ABC, CBS and NBC did not cover the trial at all, yet gave 41 minutes and 26 seconds of air time to the story of Mike Rice, the Rutgers basketball coach who was fired for verbally and physically abusing his players.

9. The 3801 Lancaster Film Project is an ongoing documentary series about Kermit Gosnell, the Women’s Medical Society, and the cover-up by state and local oversight agencies.  You can find the film on YouTube.

Pro-Life Media- An Oxymoron?

The issue of tv programming has recently become foremost in my life and mind.  I have spent some time visiting a close relative with my young children. And this person, who claims to be a born-again believer has the television on 24/7.  This relative of mine loves to watch the most horrific shows. The person likes NCIS, CSI, Charmed, House, etc…. These shows are so filled with murder, rape, cursings, and other horrors and sins. I am in shock, almost.

While visiting this relative I had to work very diligently to keep my children away from the large tv in the middle of the family room. I had to keep their play pen in another room and really almost could not let them even walk through the room where the tv was located due to the fact that at any moment a picture of an autopsy or some scary music or a witch or demon was being portrayed on the boob tube.

This issue of Television viewing is very much of a “Life Issue”. I feel that the programming available has almost nil life affirming content. Maybe the only solution is either  chuck the tv out the window or perhaps get Sky Angel?

Romans 1:28-32 shows what tv is all about-

28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

I think the part about taking pleasure in those that are doing these horrible depictions on tv is where the sin really comes in. And in a home that has its airwaves filled by tv, one’s peace is disturbed. I know mine is.

The situation is sad. I can only work on me. But I do exhort you Christians who claim to love and follow Christ who died a painful and bloody death on the cross, to please reject the tv or the Hell-i-vision as it were.

We must choose life and most especially for our children. We cannot allow them to witness all of the trash and death culture of tv.  The tv cannot be the family altar!

God Bless and may He help us all to eschew evil in all its forms.
