I’m reading an excellent commentary by Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger who was at the late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s trial yesterday. This is a must read to get a first hand account of what went on inside of the courtroom yesterday.
There is a lot of good information in that article but the one thing that sticks out to me is the reasoning Gosnell gave, according to his defense, for snipping the necks of the babies who survived abortion. Why? To alleviate pain for the child!
Is that the most absurd thing you have ever heard in your life? To do this to children in the first place has got to be pure evil, you have to be sick and twisted. But to think anyone, the jury especially is going to buy into that is just insane! A child is in severe pain from an attempt to kill him/her so to alleviate that pain you snip his/her neck? I mean, repeating it here is just absurd. Plus, it’s an admission of guilt, is it not?
Let’s hope and pray NO ONE on this jury buys this excuse and the full weight of the law and justice come down. Gosnell and everyone associated with these atrocities needs are prayers but the victims need justice and future victims need protected from these acts of violence.
Stay tuned for a verdict…
