My one month old son Noah is small. He’s still around his birth weight and still has the look of a newborn baby.
Despite his small size, it’s amazing to watch how alert he is and how he interacts with his big sisters, his mom, and myself. We are all excited to see what kind of man he grows up to be.
That is one reason why I was horrified yesterday to see photos of murdered babies from the Kermit Gosnell trial, they looked like Noah.
Dr. Gosnell has run an abortion clinic in Philadelphia for thirty years, and is on trial for murdering seven babies born alive and one would be mother.
The testimony and photos coming from the trial are absolutely heartbreaking: babies spinal cords severed with scissors as they struggled for life, the feet of aborted children being kept in jars as mementos, filthy operating facilities, and a doctor boasting about killing babies “big enough to walk me home.”
This should be front page news. It is every bit as horrifying as the Newtown shootings, and they kept our attention for months.
It may be the biggest abortion related trial since Roe v. Wade thirty years ago. Yet there is deafening silence about it in the “mainstream” news media.
As one of the few reporters who was at the trial remarked “if you are pro-choice, do you really want people to hear about this?“
I do. Go online and search for Kermit Gosnell. Then explain to me why this is not newsworthy.
