By this time, you’ve probably heard about the Pennsylvania abortionist, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who was arrested and charged with killing a post-abortive woman and seven live infants. Gosnell had become rich by killing babies 6, 7, and 8 months old — despite Pennsylvania’s ban on late-term abortions.
The infanticides are “abortions,” in that Gosnell purposefully induced a premature birth of the infants for the purpose of taking their lives. District Attorney Seth Williams said today that the charges involve a particularly gruesome method of killing the babies.
During a press conference, Williams said Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord.”
“There were bags, and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building,” said Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams. “There were jars lining shelves with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.”
Don’t look away. For, as evil and gruesome as this “Dr. Death” is, the decision to kill their babies by abortion was first made by pregnant women and teenage girls. They believed the death of a little baby was acceptable and preferable.
What if you were that baby? Wouldn’t you want your mother to change her mind? What if you were being threatened in your home by a dangerous criminal waving scissors at you? Wouldn’t you want the police to burst in and save your life?
This is the desperate sense of urgency you and all people with intact consciences must have. Realize that 53 million babies in America have been killed by abortion since the Roe v. Wade ruling in 1973. That’s 1 of 6 Americans and 1 of 3 young people born since this unconstitutional edict. All dead through the torture of abortion.
This is truly a matter of life and death, for babies are being aborted every day. They all have a beating heart, brain waves, developing organs, and can feel great pain like you can.
This is why you must get uncomfortable, cancel your other plans if possible, and challenge yourself to spend time this week to love defenseless, voiceless babies. Love is a choice. Love is an action.

If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,
“does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it,
and will he not repay man according to his work?
