This thread has quite a few stories about horrific things brought out in testimony at the Gosnell trial. Until shamed into it - within the past few days, and just beginning (maybe!) - the national-level MSM and Prog/Lib New Media have been giving it little or no coverage. Local media - e.g. the Philadelphia Inquirer and at least some local TV stations (credit where credit is due!) - have been doing their job and letting the ideological chips fall where they may.
I expect I’ll be hearing some flack for this, but I completely reject everything this guy did. Running an illegal abortion clinic …
Actually, he was running a clinic whose existence was legal. Some of the things he did may have been illegal - the jury will have the say on that. His whole Hell-Hole operation got exposed, not by health inspectors inspecting the place, not by patients going to hospitals with life threatening complications (and at least one did die), but because the greedbag supplied local druggies with prescriptions for their drugs of choice for fun and profit and the Feds raided his place. Had the Feds not drug-raided his Hell-Hole, he might have remained unexposed until retirement (or death by natural causes), and who knows how many more women he might have maimed or killed.
I would say that the overwhelming majority of the “pro abortion crowd” finds this disgusting and depraved as well. Only the fringe would find this something other than murder.
RO has had threads about this case since 2011. IIRC, the Feds raided Gosnell’s Hell-Hole in 2010. In an incomplete survey of responses to those threads, I’ve found four Pro-Abortion people who responded … at all. You, Cam, twice (your response a year ago was much the same as the one you posted here). A member using the forum name “Liberal” and Trekky, above, much the same, a year ago. And a member who claimed - a year ago - that there wasn’t much substance to this case on which to comment. I’m not able - due to changes in that site - to link for you my contemporaneous posts made on another discussion site regarding the murder of George Tiller (for the sake of comparison), but you can search here for my references to “(George) Tiller” and “(Scott) Roeder” and get a flavor of how often and in what terms I expressed myself on RO about that event. Giving credit where some credit is due you, Liberal and Trekky, Pro-Abortion people’s muted responses (and non-responses!) here on RO to the Gosnell Horror have me wearing a roller skate on my chin.
RET (and relevant others), when Cam or another of your bete noirs post a pic of Kermit Gosnell with a halo and a caption of,“Kill! KILL! KILL!!!” (or otherwise avow delight in killing babies), calling that Pro-Abortion person “bloodthirsty” will not be an insult. More simply, if it’s your opinion of what they are, it’s potentially Warnable/Infractable; if they openly and clearly avow delight in the killing, fine.
