The grownups have a thing or two to explain to the, well, liberals and abortionists:
Infanticide and the infantilization of women.
By JAMES TARANTO
“How safe is abortion?” asks the frequently-asked-questions page of the Potomac Family Planning Center, a regional chain of four abortion stores in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. The answer: “Very safe. Our doctors are gynecologists who have years of experience specializing in abortion care. It’s unusual to have even minor problems.”
Tell that to Desiree Hawkins. Kirsten Powers reported in USA Today recently on what happened when Hawkins, now 20, visited Potomac’s Hagerstown, Md., shop as a pregnant 16-year-old:
The clinic told her she was 19 weeks pregnant and referred her to [Philadelphia abortionist Kermit] Gosnell. When she recently retrieved her file in anticipation of testifying [at Gosnell's murder trial], she was shocked that her sonogram showed she had in fact been at 21 weeks, which meant she would have been 23 weeks pregnant by the time Gosnell performed the abortion. “I was so overwhelmed and hurt,” said Hawkins. “If I had known I was 23 weeks, I would have (chosen) adoption.”
She also would have avoided the trauma visited upon her by Gosnell. Hawkins described the licensed medical professional as laughing at her during the procedure as she cried and begged him to stop because of the pain. “Stop being a baby,” he said.
“Stop being a baby.” You know what we do to babies around here.
This story reminded us of the first item we wrote about the Gosnell case, back in January 2011 when he had just been indicted…
This is just the opening of James Taranto’s daily must-read column in the Wall Street Journal, today. Aside from the words keep reading, I’m always left speechless when discussing the Kermit Gosnell trial. I admit, though, that I always try to eke out a few choice words for the corrupt, abortion-industry-defending liberal mainstream media, who refuse to cover this story for their purely political (liberal-left) and ideological (abortion-industry-defending) reasons.
So here’s today’s choice words: the liberal-left mainstream media seem to treat the truth about the Kermit Gosnell story as if it were another newly born bothched-abortion baby.
And my usual sign-off to abortion stories: abortion is the most disgusting thing ever thought of by humans.
