Mass murder of babies goes unnoticed--USA Today
Apr 13, 2013
With all the media coverage of anti-gun legislation, designed to protect young children, is it not a bit hypocritical that the media refuses to cover the story of the abortion doctor who beheads aborted babies if they live through the procedure?
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?...
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....
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....
You don't have to oppose abortion rights to find late-term abortion abhorrent or to find the Gosnell trial eminently newsworthy. This is not about being "pro-choice" or "pro-life." It's about basic human rights.
The deafening silence of too much of the media, once a force for justice in America, is a disgrace.
COMMENT: One can blame abortionist doctors, I suppose, but we should not lose sight of the original problem. Aborting babies would not have become legal in the first place if the church had not put away the law of God more than a century ago. The church cannot simply blame non-believers for this problem. When Christians gave themselves the right to pick and choose which laws of God they wanted to obey, they gave men the right to veto God's law in favor of the traditions of men.
They should have realized long ago that there would be consequences to such lawlessness. The non-Christians have simply exercised the same right that the church claimed for itself a long time ago. The church set the standard, and the world followed.
