The quoted words are from a column in today's USA Today by Kristin Powers about the "house of horrors"abortion business run by Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Ms. Powers writes:
"Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven't heard about these sickening accusations?
It's not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell's former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.
NBC-10 Philadelphia reported that, Stephen Massof, a former Gosnell worker, 'described how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it, 'literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body.' One former worker, Adrienne Moton, testified that Gosnell taught her his "snipping" technique to use on infants born alive..."
Powers then notes the unconscionable silence by the mainstream media:
"A Lexis-Nexis search shows none of the news shows on the three major national television networks has mentioned the Gosnell trial in the last three months. The exception is when Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan hijacked a segment on Meet the Press meant to foment outrage over an anti-abortion rights law in some backward red state.
The Washington Post has not published original reporting on this during the trial and The New York Times saw fit to run one original story on A-17 on the trial's first day. They've been silent ever since, despite headline-worthy testimony.
Let me state the obvious. This should be front page news. When Rush Limbaugh attacked Sandra Fluke, there was non-stop media hysteria. The venerable NBC Nightly News' Brian Williams intoned, "A firestorm of outrage from women after a crude tirade from Rush Limbaugh," as he teased a segment on the brouhaha. Yet, accusations of babies having their heads severed — a major human rights story if there ever was one — doesn't make the cut."
They can't allow themselves to report on this, to confront this, to even think about this. That is how sick our "pro-choice" culture is--and not just the evil of legalized abortion, but the denial of reality it entails, which in man is a moral failing, a sin.
