First, prayers for the victims of the Boston bombings.
As for the Gosnell thing, two thoughts just struck. He’s on trial for killing one woman and seven babies, the infants done in by “snipping”…being beheaded with scissors. And although “Dr.” Gosnell destroyed his files, there seems to be no doubt that he “snipped” hundreds and hundreds of times.
So…this list? This list right here? He probably tops it. Gosnell trumps Garavito. Of course, there may be other “doctors” out that who’ve been even more prolific snippers. I bet free-wheeling abortionists could probably displace the entire serial killer leaderboard. And this is with us differentiating between abortion and infanticide, even if they are the same thing. Most people don’t think that killing a clump of cells is murder, even if it is. But not one single soul believes that beheading a baby isn’t murder…not even those who want legal infanticide.
Rep. Jose Oliva followed up, asking the Planned Parenthood official, “You stated that a baby born alive on a table as a result of a botched abortion that that decision should be left to the doctor and the family. Is that what you’re saying?”
Again, Snow replied, “That decision should be between the patient and the health care provider.”
“I think that at that point the patient would be the child struggling on the table, wouldn’t you agree?” asked Oliva.
“That’s a very good question. I really don’t know how to answer that,” Snow said. “I would be glad to have some more conversations with you about this.”
You see why my blogging lapses are growing lengthier? What’s one to say? Why THE HELL does society treat Alisa LaPolt Snow with polite respect? I’d say, “Ms. Snow…would it be murder if I aborted you? Maybe you never grew a conscience, in which case you’re just an enormous talking fetus, or maybe you slew your conscience, making yourself an inhuman monster. I know you’ll claim personhood, Ms. Snow, but any parrot can be trained to squawk the same thing. So either you’re as human as a screaming baby….or you are less.”
Bah. Yet more reason to keep hibernating from the world and its crazy vertebrate ways.
Oh, right, two thoughts were mentioned. You remember Jack Kevorkian. That huge public outcry! Should doctors (or anyone) be allowed to facilitate voluntary euthanasia? Society said “No!”…in the bygone era of 1999. Now, fourteen years later, we have public defense of infanticide and Obamacare’s soon-to-come IPAB (Independent Payment Advisory Board).
So, modern civilization: women decide the fate of helpless infants, and bureaucrats decide the fate of powerless citizens. That’s progress, I guess.
