Can You Honestly Defend Abortion?

I want to talk about something today that people try to ignore. Abortion. Everyone has their own thoughts on the subject but I think most supporters of abortion don’t really know the gritty details of this institution funded in part by the federal government. In fact, it wasn’t long ago that I was of the mindset that I would never abort a child but that people should have the choice. I felt that way before I knew the facts, quite frankly because I didn’t want to know.

There is a man on trial in Pennsylvania for charges including; seven counts of first-degree murder (seven babies), one count of third-degree murder of a mother, as well as infanticide, conspiracy, abortion at 24 or more weeks, abuse of a corpse, theft, corruption of minors, solicitation and other related offenses.

His name is Gosnell and of course he is innocent until proven guilty so I’m not going to sit here and flay him while the verdict is still out but I can give you some of the testimony.

One medical assistant of four and a half years, Ms. Cross, testified that she once saw the accused put a botched abortion survivor in a toilet to drown. Ms. Cross said that the baby “was like swimming,” and was, “basically, trying to get out.”

Adrienne Moton, an employee at the clinic, then took the baby and snipped the back of its neck while the mother was still in the room.

One of the arguments I’ve heard in favor of abortion has been the debate about when it becomes a life. I think if it is fighting for its life it is alive and to cut its spinal cord is murder and not anyone’s right to choose.

Cross also testified that she witnessed Steven Massof, an unlicensed medical school graduate who worked at the clinic, snip babies necks (spinal cords) 25 to 30 times.

She also took pictures of the clinic out of concern. Some of them depicted over fifty jars filled with baby’s feet stored at the clinic, which Gosnell said he was keeping for “DNA purposes.” Others showed bloody equipment and the “doctor’s” cat roaming freely around the clinic, even in procedure rooms.

In the city that birthed a nation founded on the basic human right to life, Gosnell routinely denied life to these infants who survived botched abortions in his unsanitary clinic, prosecutors said.

It is impossible to know how many abortion survivors are out there or how many live birth abortions are committed but there are plenty of stories from these survivors. How would you feel to know that something you survived, such as an abortion, was so heartily defended as a choice.

What can we say to these people to sympathize with them and rationalize abortion at the same time? “We’re sorry that you’re missing a limb as a result of that failed abortion, but that abortion attempt was in your mother’s best interest as well as yours and society’s and the world’s”? Or, “Your injuries are awful; better technology and skill should have been available to abort you correctly so that you would not have lived to either ‘enslave’ your mother or suffer yourself”? D.N. Rivera

These survivors are dehumanized by the defense of abortion and the way I see it, abortion is the last and the most important battle of the civil rights fight. A person who defends abortion is no better than a person who supported the holocaust.

If you still support abortion I challenge you to Bing “abortion images” and see what you think of your so called choice to steal away the life of another human being.

It damn near makes me want to cry to think how carelessly people wipe their feet on our constitution and the bill of rights in this day and age. Our rights are under attack and to many people are all to willing to watch. I forget who said it but the American people will only have the level of tyranny that they allow. When you see the fifth amendment trampled in Boston as police invade and illegally search people’s homes; when you see the President spit on the second amendment by banning the import of firearms and ammunition without approval from congress; when you see the first amendment infringed upon with CISPA trying to erase Internet privacy and giving government the ability to censor the Internet what you see is the slow death of an idea that came to life 250 years ago and it really isn’t very slow because all of this happened just in the last week. Don’t sit quiet. Don’t take it. Don’t allow the American dream to die with little more than a whimper.
