Break the Gosnell Media Blackout – Friday, April 12th

Abortionist Kermit Gosnell By The Numbers

Dr. Kermit Gosnell — a “barbaric” “monster” — is on trial in Philadelphia for murdering one woman and seven babies.

The major TV networks and big-city newspapers want America to know nothing about it, so they are ignoring the story: a deliberate conspiracy of silence, demonstrating their intellectual and moral depravity.

Kirsten Powers, a Democratic analyst and columnist, wrote at USA Today, today:

Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven’t heard about these sickening accusations?

It’s not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell’s former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.

Gosnell was arrested more than two years ago:

A doctor whose abortion clinic was a filthy, foul-smelling “house of horrors” that was overlooked by regulators for years was charged Wednesday [Jan. 19, 2011] with murder, accused of delivering seven babies alive and then using scissors to kill them.

Hundreds of other babies likely died in the squalid clinic that Dr. Kermit Gosnell ran from 1979 to 2010, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said at a news conference.

“My comprehension of the English language can’t adequately describe the barbaric nature of Dr. Gosnell,” he added.

At the time, Philadelphia’s mayor was quoted:

Mayor Michael Nutter was frank when he spoke about the allegations against Dr. Kermit Gosnell.

“I think it’s quite clear that, if these allegations are true, we’ve had a monster living in our midst,” Nutter said Friday [Jan. 21, 2011].

Mainstream Media Ignores Kermit Gosnell Murder Trial

Powers continued:

Let me state the obvious. This should be front page news. When Rush Limbaugh attacked Sandra Fluke, there was non-stop media hysteria. The venerable NBC Nightly News’ Brian Williams intoned, “A firestorm of outrage from women after a crude tirade from Rush Limbaugh,” as he teased a segment on the brouhaha. Yet, accusations of babies having their heads severed — a major human rights story if there ever was one — doesn’t make the cut.

You don’t have to oppose abortion rights to find late-term abortion abhorrent or to find the Gosnell trial eminently newsworthy. This is not about being “pro-choice” or “pro-life.” It’s about basic human rights.

Pennsylvania Family Institute has a timeline and trial updates — which you’ll have trouble finding anywhere else.

A “tweetfest” is being called for tomorrow, Friday, April 12th. Call out media using the hashtag “#gosnell”.

Not on Twitter? Call or email media and demand they cover the trial of Philadelphia’s “barbaric” “monster” doctor.

  • Thank you for sharing. This is horrendous and we must spread the word on mainstream media!

  • goral

    The media is an extension of the democrat party. Democrats support abortion.
    Why would the democrat media report negatively what they support?

    I disagree with Mr. Core’s statement that – You don’t have to oppose abortion rights to find late-term abortion abhorrent. The fact is that it’s all abhorrent and the dems. know it so they don’t want to take any chances.

    Mum is the word and Mom is the target.

  • There has been a massive response to posting this horror story on Twitter. It’s out there far and wide and now we will see how the media will response to this real ‘war on women’ and their unborn babies. Women I work with who have had abortions are now faced with the anguish of wondering what happened when they aborted – and be sure that there are more Gosnell’s out there – George Tiller was a media hero despite the fact that he specialized in late term abortions, partially delivering live babies and just before they fully emerged, he would kill them – and we call ourselves a civilized country!
