This man is despicable. But more despicable is the non-existent oversight in Pennsylvania, the lack of protection for women and babies in this state. If I hear another politician say that he is in favor of safe and rare abortions, I’m gonna puke. No one, at least in Pennsylvania, really cares about ‘safe and rare’ or the best health care for women and babies. If they did, this clinic would have been closed long – LONG – ago.
If this is not proof that the liberals do not care about minorities and especially in this case, minority women, nothing does. This ‘doctor’ and I use the word loosely, preyed on the most poor, frightened and ignorant among us. He took their money and took no concern in their health, welfare or even their lives. He delivered viable babies and killed them.
And all this under the noses of physicians in positions to stop this, state medical boards that apparently wanted to protect the rights of doctors, health departments who could have shut him down but ignored complaints, politicians who gave lipservice to protecting the rights of women to choose.
Did those poor, frightened women have any idea what they were choosing? Did they know that their unwanted, unborn babies would have their spinal cords snipped and their babies body parts preserved in pickle jars and milk cartons, decorating his office and stored in his office refrigerator?
Oh, I think not.
And to add insult to injury, Gossnel was preforming abortions after the legal gestational age. (24 weeks is the limit, after that abortions are criminal in the state of Pennsylvania.)
Did these women know that they would leave his office with venereal disease, perforated organs and raging infections? Did they know that they would leave his office sterile?
Was it worth the $400 cash and late night abortions, for all this?
There should be no doubt what the answer is.
Where in all of this is NOW? Not a word from them – AGAIN – about something that threatens the health, welfare and life of women, especially minority women who they brag so loudly that they champion and protect.
There is no justice for a man like this. But he is not alone in guilt. The entire liberal system should be held to account for this. The evidence is clear: he is a murderer and the system is just as culpable. There is no concern by the liberals for the welfare of the poor, there never has been. Pennsylvania was run by pro-abortion politicians for decades. Their excuse to not securing and protecting the health and safety of the female patients was their concern that they would be erecting barriers to their almighty right to choice! These progressives have protected and by silence, encouraged the very thing they profess to want to eradicate: back alley, midnight abortions and abortion butchers.
I call BullShit on all of that! They care nothing for those most vulnerable patients – the women and the unborn babies. What they do care about is the votes they will get from those mostly minority communities.
In the end, it’s all about the votes, even if it means you have to lie to minorities to get them.
For Obama, 9/11 was a “deeply traumatic event for our country.” Traumatic events invite characteristic reactions and over-reactions–fearfulness, anger, even hysteria. That’s how Obama understands the source of objections to the Ground Zero mosque. It’s all emotional. The arguments don’t have to be taken seriously. The criticisms of the mosque are the emotional reactions of a traumatized people.
But Americans aren’t traumatized. 9/11 was an attack on America, to which Americans have responded firmly, maturely, and appropriately. Part of our sensible and healthy reaction is that there shouldn’t be a 13-story mosque and Islamic community center next to Ground Zero (especially when it’s on a faster track to be built than the long-delayed memorial there). But Obama (like Bloomberg) doesn’t feel he even has to engage the arguments against the mosque–because he regards his fellow citizens as emotionally traumatized victims, not citizens who might have a reasonable point of view.
I’m so sick and tired of TheOne talking to us like we are children or one of his students in some imaginary class. He’s not a professor, and never has been one, contrary to what the lame stream media wants us to believe. He is not a constitutional scholar nor does he understand the Constitution any better than most attorneys. The only thing he’s an authority about is community organizing and patronizing Americans. He’s no more a psychologist than Dr. Seuss was – although Dr. Seuss had a much better understanding of human nature than Obama has.
Don’t talk to me about being traumatized and acting irrationally. That is the purview of liberals who talk about how they “feel” about issues and not what they “think.” If he wants to talk to Americans, he needs to talk about right and wrong and he needs to grow some balls in order for him to speak about right and wrong.
No one denies that there is a Constitutional right to build this mosque. And in fact, the ones who oppose this building are more knowledgeable about that document than most on the left are. But because you can do it, does not mean you should: because you have the right does not make it right. What part of this does he and his party not understand?
I also get peeved when I hear people say that this is a local issue, as though only New Yorkers have the right to an opinion. It is a national issue. On 9/11/01 what American didn’t feel as though we were under attack? America was under attack on that day and not just in New York but in a field in Pennsylvania and in Washington DC. All Americans felt that same way on December 7, 1941, too. So Nancy, you may want to duck the issue by claiming that building a mosque in New York is not your business, the rest of us Americans feel pretty vested in the topic.
And if she wants to investigate nearly 70% of American citizens, then that includes some in her own party – like Harry Reid.
