"Violence Of The Most Intimate Sort"May 21, 2013
Now that the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell is over, many in the Left-Wing apparatus — the mainstream media (which never had an interest in covering the trial), pro-abortion advocates, the abortion industry, so-called academics, the entertainment and infotainment industry, the chattering and pundit class, protest groups, so-called "women's rights" groups, anti-religious freedom and anti-Christian groups, and the like; in short, the entirety of the "Professional Left" as then-Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs dubbed them — will be quick to dismiss Gosnell as a one-off or, as Planned Parenthood perversely stated, a victory for women's safety (despite the fact that it opposes abortion center safety standards) with nary a mention of the children who were butchered to death. But we, the pro-life movement and specifically The Family Foundation, will not let it go because Gosnell is not a one-off. He is, in fact, the tip of the iceberg. There are emerging investigations from Texas (see LifeNews.com) to Iowa to Maryland to Delaware to D.C. and elsewhere.
One of this country's most eloquent voices for the unborn is Charles J. Chaput, who happens to be Archbishop of Philadelphia, where Gosnell performed his brutality. Archbishop Chaput released this statement last week (see Gloria.TV):
The trial of Kermit Gosnell is over. His convictions will surprise very few. But nothing can bring back the innocent children he killed, or make up for the vulnerable women he exploited. We should keep the repugnance of his clinic conditions sharp in our memories, and we should remember the media's inadequacy in covering his case, because Kermit Gosnell is not an exception. Others just like him run abortion mills throughout our country.
We need to stop cloaking the ugliness of abortion with misnomers like "proper medical coverage" or "choice." It's violence of the most intimate sort, and it needs to end.
"Violence of the most intimate sort," is chillingly accurate, made more so by the Orwellian use of term, such as "women's healthcare" and "reproductive choice" to obfuscate abortion's uniquely cruel and inhuman wickedness. The exposure of these crimes will continue, convictions will happen, the true meaning of euphemisms will be restored and, eventually, abortion will end. No matter how much the Left tries to ignore, cover-up or apologize for it.
