What if Gosnell kept jars of severed puppy paws?
April 12, 2013
This tweet by Erick Erickson got me thinking. How would one of the Gosnell news stories (from one of the few outlets covering the trial) sound if “baby” was replaced with “puppy?” Consider this:
Obsessed With Death: Kermit Gosnell Kept Jars of Severed Puppy Paws
His alleged crimes went undetected for years. He was the go-to guy in the neighborhood for Oxycotin and other addictive drugs—an illegal business which investigators say brought in hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.
And he was also known as the doc to go to for extremely late, late-term puppy terminations (more than 24 weeks’ gestation). At times, those “late-term puppy terminations” turned into the killing of live puppies, according to a grand jury report that reads like the script from a horror movie.
When live puppies were delivered, he allegedly stuck scissors in the back of the puppies’ necks and severed the spinal cords, killing them. The grand jury estimates that Gosnell engaged in hundreds of such killings, but charges could be brought in only a handful of cases, because he conveniently destroyed files to cover his tracks. The suspect, who, if convicted, might be described as the John Wayne Gacy of West Philadelphia, cleverly hid evidence—but not all of it.
Forgive the graphic nature of the following description, but it must be included to show the depravity behind Gosnell’s puppy termination center walls: A search team found the parts of dead puppies nearly everywhere—in the refrigerator, in the freezer, and in containers which would ordinarily carry milk, orange juice, even cat food.
And then there were the jars of severed puppy paws…
If that description of puppy torture and killing makes you uncomfortable, good! But how more uncomfortable should we, and all Americans, feel when we know that description is about flesh and blood human beings?
It’s truly distressing that Erick Erickson’s tweet is right. If the Gosnell trial was about killing puppies instead of human abortion – everyone would be talking about it! PETA would be marching in the street and Congressional hearings would be called! NBC, CBS and ABC would send satellite trucks to sit outside of the courthouse for the trial of this monster puppy-killer. We would ask, “How can we prevent this from ever happening again?”
It’s time to break the silence on the Gosnell case. And that’s why we’re participating in the Gosnell Tweetfest today. Mainstream media may still ignore the story, but we’re making it harder for them to do so. Because with so many social media channels, Americans hear news from their family and friends. The nightly news anchor no longer has the news market cornered.
Join us in the Tweetfest to expose the abortion atrocities of Kermit Gosnell. Expose the truth.
