Could you give us some context?

Here's a link to the story.

He is talking about the Kermit Gosnell trial.

You can be forgiven for not having heard about it as the media have been avoiding it like the plague due to political sensitivities (the "murder trial of the century that wasn't").

At least until they got dragged unwillingly into it by outrage on social media, etc.

That a gay basketball player has received about 4,000% more coverage over the past month than this case is pretty astonishing.


Edit: I was wrong, it was only 2,000%.


In the eight days since NBA player Jason Collins announced he was gay, the news media have covered the story in 2,381 places.

In the first eight days of the trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell and his “House of Horrors” abortion business, the media covered the story in 115 places, meaning that Collins’ “gay” news received more than 1,970.4% more news coverage.

I found this story so upsetting, I couldn't even follow it--which is rare for me.

What I did read chilled me to the bone, therefore, guilty with a life sentence is better than this man deserves.

In this case I would have to say yes.

They have laws for a reason on this issue, as well as medical and ethical issues
and he chose to totally disregard them.

So he got what he deserves.

Edit
I was always under the impression that permission for late term abortion
could be obtained if needed and they can then be carried out legally.
Is that not the case ?

I agree with 500N and COF.
Callous and gruesome.

The man is a murderer. It is that simple.

This is the worst type of murder. I didn't read the entire article, I found what I read too distressing. The man is clearly a psychopath or just plain evil and callous. What does one do? Multiple life sentences for a 73 year old? That achieves what? He's not going to languish in jail and repent.

Although death is too kind for someone like that, in my view it is the practical solution. Just hope it's neither quick nor painless.

Why so many late abortions? What sort of women chose to have an abortion at 24 weeks or even 30 weeks?
Were they mainly teenagers pretending it hadn't happened, and going into denial? And/or did this abortionist practice in a particularly religious area where contraception was not allowed along with sex before marriage?
Abortion should be quick and effective using the morning after pill, or the vacuum procedure. But these women left it for months turning a relatively simple medical intervention into horrendous infanticide. For sure blame the callous abortionist doctor, but those stupid women must take a lot of the blame.

I too could not finish reading the article for feeling physically ill (so I may have missed some of the pertinent points). For the first time it made me question my stance on a previous thread. Whilst I haven't fundamentally changed my view, this man deserves whatever is coming to him and more.

The other half is a doctor. She tells me that technically a foetus can be aborted humanely up to day of delivery for various reasons (depending on country to country) this guy just seemed to take pleasure in doing it the cruellest way possible.

Why do people keep portraying the myth that the media somehow "blacked out" this case.

Just because they did not give the trial a logo and theme music does not mean they were covering it up for Obama and his minions!!

As to the case at hand, I am not one for the death penalty but in this case I would make an exception. Death by Spinal Cord severing.

Disgusting and barbaric! Like the others, I could not stomach any more and stopped reading.

The poster asking about "why so many late abortions?" may find that the answer lies in the lack of availability of the procedure in some States.

To give you an example in the UK a teenage gorl can go to the doctors and can be reassured of some degree of confidentiality. In the States that confidentiality may exist but the visit is either goingto have to be paid for , or go through the family insurance. How do you explain that to your folks?

Admittingly I don't think the media is exactly unbiased on this subject but what I hear about women's lack of access to basic contraceptive services in a so called first world country scares the living bejesus out of my.

It's not that much better North of the border either. I was denied a procedure ( not an abortion) in hospital because the hospital was " catholic funded, so we can't do that here"

IF and only IF the mother's life is in jeopardy.

The thug is 73 years old. By the time all the appeals were to run their course through the court system he'd probably be about 93-95 years old before he became eligible for an escort down to Old Sparky. By that time, who would give a shit?

Thanks. This is the problem with worldwide forums
and every country / state having it's own laws.

The abortionist practiced in the inner-city environment of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 99% of his patients were of minority races. Had nothing to do with religion, or lack thereof.

They are all in prison as well. Where they belong.

rg, I'd say it had to do with a lot of men failing to wrap the rascal. While not a 100% preventative, it sure would put a dent into unwanted pregnancies.

It's not in their financial interest to do so when the more kids you produce the more funding you get from the State and Federal governments. The Mrs. and I knew of a family, not friends, who had 8 kids. Daddy and Mommy didn't work nor did they have any inclination to do so. The price? $2,300 bi-weekly from the State of CT. Not bad for deadbeats. And especially not when you take the $2,300 bi-weekly (not taxed of course) and use it for the purchase of crack cocaine. Which turns the whole endeavor into quite a lucrative "business".

It's called Aid to Families with Dependant Children. And it's a scam of the highest order.
