Brendon Ward on Dr. Gosnell Trial

Many in the world today are taking a long look at the abortion industry because of the May 14, 2013 guilty verdict and life term penalty handed down by a jury (which included 9 out of 12 pro-choice jurors)  to Dr. Kermit Gosnell. During this time of reflection I wanted to put forth some of the pro-life’s best arguments.

In the film series “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE HUMAN RACE?” the arguments are presented  against abortion (Episode 1),  infanticide (Episode 2),   euthanasia (Episode 3), and then there is a discussion of the Christian versus Humanist worldview concerning the issue of “the basis for human dignity” in Episode 4 and then in the last episode a close look at the truth claims of the Bible.

I truly believe that many of the problems we have today in the USA are due to the advancement of humanism in the last few decades in our society. Ronald Reagan appointed the evangelical Dr. C. Everett Koop to the position of Surgeon General in his administration. He partnered with Dr. Francis Schaeffer in making the video below. It is very valuable information for Christians to have.  Actually I have included a video below that includes comments from him on this subject.

Francis Schaeffer: “Whatever Happened to the Human Race” (Episode 1) ABORTION OF THE HUMAN RACE

Kermit Gosnell

April 29, 2013

By Brendon Ward

GosnellYou won’t see it on TV, whether paid or free-to-air.  The New Zealand Herald ran an article months ago, way before the fire was stoked.  The mainstream blogosphere hasn’t mentioned it (at least not when this was being written).  It’s not being talked about at morning tea or drinks on a Friday.

“One of the most shocking medical malpractice and human rights violations stories in recent US history has been running in a courtroom in Philadelphia for a month now but you would know that from following [major news outlets]”1

The trial of Kermit Gosnell, an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, PA involves a sensational 281-page Grand Jury report and horrific testimonies of what should have at least merited some space in the World sections of our leading newspapers, or some TV or radio airtime.  But there isn’t.

There seems to be a global media blackout in relation to this.  When pressed, a New York Times editor said, “Judged on news value alone, the Gosnell trial deserves more coverage than it’s had, in The Times and elsewhere”2 and attributes that to the chaos theory that dictates what’s news and what’s not.

So what of the details?  What is shocking medical malpractice?  What human rights have been violated?

A testimony given by a former employee of the cynically named Women’s Medical Society described how, as an unlicensed medical graduate, he helped Gosnell perform late-term abortions by snipping the spinal cords of babies as they were delivered.  “It was literally a beheading.  It is separating the brain from the body.”3

The Grand Jury report states:

“This is about the betrayal of poor, scared women, mostly young, mostly black or immigrant.  At least two of them are dead.  Many had their wombs and bowels perforated.  Many were infected with venereal diseases with unsterilized instruments.

“This is about hundreds of infanticides in which live, viable, babies in the third trimester of pregnancy were delivered – and then murdered by snipping their spinal cords with scissors. One of them was so developed that the doctor joked, before snipping, ‘he could walk me to the bus stop’. It is about thousands of abortions.”4

When law enforcement authorities entered the facility in February 2010 looking for evidence of illegal drug prescribing, this is what they found:

“There was blood on the floor and urine was splattered on the walls. A flea-infested cat was prowling around, and there were cat faeces on the stairs. Semi-conscious women scheduled for abortions were moaning in the waiting room or the recovery room, where they sat on dirty recliners covered with blood-stained blankets.

“The two surgical procedure rooms were filthy — like “a bad gas station restroom”, said a policeman. Instruments were not sterile. Equipment was rusty and outdated. Oxygen equipment was covered with dust. Corroded suction tubing for abortion procedures doubled as a suction source for resuscitation. It stank.

“Foetal remains were haphazardly stored throughout the clinic – in bags, milk jugs, orange juice cartons, and even in cat-food containers. Some were in a refrigerator, others were frozen. The investigators found a row of jars containing just the severed feet of foetuses, like voodoo fetishes. In the basement, they discovered medical waste piled high.”5

This was not something that went without client complaint – especially as in 2009 Karnamaya Mongar, an immigrant from Nepal, was given so much anaesthetic at Gosnell’s clinic that she fell unconscious and died in hospital.  When asked why the death was not followed up the chief counsel for the Pennsylvania Department of Health explained: “People die”.   There have been other complaints laid with the Pennsylvania Department of Health.  The reasons vary but they share commonality in that not one of them was met with a site visit or investigation.

Shocking medical malpractice and human rights violations; court room proceedings; law enforcement reports; Grand Jury report; the testimony of former employees; the death of clients – all point to the reality that atrocities have been committed or supervised by Kermit Gosnell.  Yet our media has nothing to say.  A prolonged power outage in semi-rural New Zealand gets front page space6, but not a case that has seen thousands of children killed, women irreversibly violated (and some actually killed), and leaves a State department with a lot of explaining to do.

I guess that’s why The Life Times exists.  If you could read this in the Herald or on stuff.co.nz, if you could hear this on the radio or watch it on TV, I wouldn’t need to write anything.  But you haven’t seen nor heard, and I have written!

As this is an unfolding story, there is something to follow – though not through your regular news source.

I recommend starting with a documentary that has been put together and can be viewed at www.3801lancaster.com.  From there like their Facebook page, follow the links and read the articles.
