That is the place you will find the most ardent defenders of “pro-choice” Verum Serum takes these miscreants to task for their complete lack of morality.
He was a bad man but not an “abortion doctor” according to Jeanne Sager. Yes, women were coming to Gosnell for illegal abortions and he was providing them with dead babies for a fee, but according to Sager, Gosnell wasn’t really an abortionist”
It’s perfectly justifiable for the court system to prosecute him on the allegations that women died in his office because of piss poor medical care. It’s justifiable too to charge him with murder for allegedly inducing labor, then killing the live babies with scissors. That wasn’t abortion. Abortion does not take the life of a child who has entered this world. There is a very clear line, and Gosnell crossed it.
So that’s the gist of the argument. You see, by allowing the babies to be born first, he crossed that always fine line between abortionist and serial killer. I find it noteworthy that those two are always so close together. Kill babies moments after birth, you’re a serial killer facing the death penalty. Kill them moments before, you’re a respected professional in a service industry.
The same viable infants–had they been killed inside the womb–would be of no account in Jeanne Sager’s view. In that case, they would be just so much medical waste. But once they take a breath outside the womb they are magically and instantly transformed into real people.
It’s good to have bright lines to fall back on, especially when they mark a distinction without a difference.
There is no more morally depraved group of people on earth than those who delude themselves into not only excusing, but perversely celebrating infanticide. Consider one more quote from Sager.
Fact: Kermit Gosnell was not acting as an “abortion doctor” when he allegedly killed living, breathing babies. He was acting as a murderer.
Is this person so demented that they cannot grasp the obvious? That baby was ALIVE, minutes before it was removed from the womb. How could it not be? Does Sager somehow think that the child ONLY came to life, developed organs, and limbs and eyes when it was pulled out of its mother?
UPDATE!! Sager is not alone in the Pit of Moral Retardation
“I’ve scooped brains out of buckets, I’ve counted dendrites in slices cut from the brains of dead babies. You want to make me back down by trying to inspire revulsion with dead baby pictures? I look at them unflinchingly and see meat. And meat does not frighten me.”
