A Tampa man is facing charges of 1st degree murder after he switched out his girlfriend’s antibiotics for Cytotec or Misoprostol, a synthethic prostaglandin that can cause abortion in females.
By now, you’ve probably heard the news that late-term abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell was found guilty of three first-degree murder charges for killing live babies as well as involuntary manslaughter of a woman who died at his Philadelphia clinic. Eyewitnesses testified that Gosnell killed hundreds of babies born alive over the years, but physical evidence was only available to prove three of them. This is a guy that kept baby feet in jars as trophies.
Will this case lead to regulations being implemented in one of the least regulated industries in America? Gosnell is certainly not alone when it comes to seedy backroom abortion operations, unsanitary conditions, and untrained staff.
Right under our preoccupied noses and all across America, hundreds of abortion “providers” are making a killing in their completely legal, government-approved businesses. Many are just living the American dream. Yes, it’s true some take advantage of confused and scared young girls; but with the average price of an abortion being around $1,300 per customer, delivering death adds up to big profits.
Various sources confirmed that Gosnell performed thousands of abortions over a 30-year career; and his practice alone netted him about $1.8 million a year, much of it in cash. Authorities found $250,000 hidden in a bedroom when they searched his house. Gosnell also owned a beach home and several rental properties.
Prosecuter Ed Cameron said that “He created an assembly line with no regard for these women whatsoever.” For obvious reasons, many of the youngest customers end up paying cash.
Is Gosnell the only twisted abortionist killing babies born alive? Are we so naive to think his clinic was the only one operating in such horrific conditions?
Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser insists Kermit Gosnell is not alone:
“Exploitation of women and complete disregard for their health and well-being are problems endemic to the entire abortion industry. There are numerous examples of negligence and even death in abortion facilities across the country. Now is the moment to realize that abortion is neither safe, nor rare. Abortion is a brutal, painful procedure, both for the child that it kills and the woman that it wounds.”
Gosnell’s radical pro-abortion views, similar to President Obama’s, clouded his respect for life, causing a blatant disregard for one of God’s most basic laws: Thou shalt not kill. Obama even said, “God bless Planned Parenthood” in a recent speech, fully supporting their ‘work.’
When abortion was legalized via Roe v. Wade in 1973, at least the court had an (extremely weak) excuse that there was some confusion over exactly when life begins. With modern technological advances such as ultrasounds, however, and the fact that science proves a human heart begins beating at six weeks, this argument holds no weight whatsoever!
And yet, abortions that are neither safe nor rare continue every minute in America under the guise of ‘reproductive freedom’ and ‘women’s health.’ A baby is aborted every 26 seconds. The media does their part by withholding the gruesome details and facts about killing our own and calling it a ‘right’. They hide the truth in part to protect the Democratic Party (abortion is a money-making platform), and most of us carry on with our busy lives without batting an eye.
Apathy has spread like a heartless disease throughout the United States. We have become desensitized to sin.
The root of this depravity is pure evil and goes against what the Bible teaches; but for the average abortion practitioner, it’s just another day at the office. Abortionists don’t care about morals. We cannot expect unbelievers to live according to godly values.
To them, the Ten Commandments are merely ten suggestions. Their consciences have been seared, and they are simply accommodating the desires of a selfish, depraved society. In today’s culture, they call it “choice.”
To Gosnell, he was just doing his job: helping young women, even underage girls, dispose of the growing lives within them at any stage of development.
To the generous taxpayers of America, we’re just helping fund the cause by generously providing Planned Parenthood with $11 every second through our tax dollars, totaling over a half a billion dollars annually. The biggest abortion business in America just eliminated two more human lives since you began this article. They perform one abortion every 94 seconds, totaling more than 335,000 abortions a year.
If you only care about money and you have no regard for God, the Bible, and life in general, it was a brilliant plan – and the devil is full of them. This dark agenda of death began with Margaret Sanger in the 1930’s and 40’s, which I expose in my book ERADICATE, in a chapter called, “Planned Parenthood’s Buried History.”
A majority of American citizens believe that abortion is wrong (and even say that there should be more restrictions placed on abortion), so what now? It’s been over 40 years since the legalization of the destruction of human life in a Mother’s womb, supposedly the safest place on earth.
What about the women who walk into abortion clinics? Some have stomachs the size of basketballs. Should they escape any scrutiny? Why don’t we hear more about those who decided to kill the precious life inside them?
The root of this tragedy is a much bigger problem; we have a hyper-sexualized, promiscuity-approving culture from Hollywood to government-run schools to the mainstream media. Sadly, some Christians are conforming.
We continue tolerating depravity in America often leading to death and vote for those who support it. We allow abortionists to play God – and most of us say nothing. If such an appalling case as Gosnell’s doesn’t cause more folks to speak up, I’m not sure what will.

PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia abortion doctor was sentenced Wednesday to a third life term for killing an aborted baby that he described as so big it could “walk to the bus.”
Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted this week of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies born alive, then stabbed with scissors. He was given two life sentences Tuesday in a deal with prosecutors that spared him a potential death sentence, and the third sentence was handed down Wednesday.
Gosnell was also sentenced to 2 ½ to five years in prison for the 2009 overdose death of a patient. The sentences are consecutive, meaning Gosnell, 72, will spend the rest of his life in prison.
The case has made Gosnell a flashpoint in the nation’s bitter debate over legalized abortion.
Prosecutors argued that Gosnell savagely killed late-term babies born alive by severing their spines, and taught several staff members the technique. Nine former clinic workers were convicted in the case, and four others pleaded guilty to murder.

A Philadelphia abortion doctor convicted of killing three babies who were born alive in his grimy clinic agreed Tuesday to give up his right to an appeal and faces life in prison but will be spared a death sentence.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, was convicted Monday of first-degree murder in the deaths of the babies who were delivered alive and killed with scissors.
In a case that became a flashpoint in the nation’s abortion debate, former clinic employees testified that Gosnell routinely performed illegal abortions past Pennsylvania’s 24-week limit, that he delivered babies who were still moving, whimpering or breathing, and that he and his assistants dispatched the newborns by “snipping” their spines, as he referred to it.
Prosecutors agreed to two life sentences without parole, and Gosnell was to be sentenced Wednesday in the death of the third baby, an involuntary manslaughter conviction in the death of a patient and hundreds of lesser counts.
Prosecutors had sought the death penalty because Gosnell killed more than one person, and his victims were especially vulnerable given their age. But Gosnell’s own advanced age had made it unlikely he would ever be executed before his appeals ran out.

WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Stockman released the following statement Monday afternoon:
A court has formally declared what people with consciences have long known. Abortionist Kermit Gosnell is a murderer.
Gosnell killed his adult patient and an unknown number of children both pre-born and born alive. The courts call it murder. Democrats call it “health care.”
Kermit Gosnell’s crimes have exposed the horrors and inhumanity of legalized abortion for all to see. The most innocent and defenseless of humans are lined up and exterminated with cold efficiency for the crime of being inconvenient.
Despite the blood-soaked horror of Gosnell’s clinic, Democrats refuse to loosen their embrace of unrestricted, unregulated, taxpayer-funded abortion on demand.
Democrats do not want abortion to be safe or rare. Democrats oppose even the most basic of health and safety standards for abortion mills. Democrats don’t care how many women are maimed, infected with diseases, or die on the routinely-filthy abortion mills. Democrats worship abortion with same fervor the Canaanites worshipped Molech.
Even more chilling, as an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama voted several times to make Gosnell’s inhuman crimes the law of the land. I hope this verdict moves him to look into his soul and change his position.
