So, “Dr” Kermit Gosnell agreed to forego any appeals to his convictions on three counts of murdering live babies, in exchange for life sentences rather than the death penalty. (Odd, the man who banally snipped the spines of children to kill them, clings stubbornly to his own life, but that’s another post some time) God have mercy on his soul and on those souls whom he corrupted and those of his victims.
As surreal and horrific the details of this case are, I predict there are other men and women out there doing the same thing, and under the same guise of helping the poor and disadvantaged. I predict we’ll hear a lot more about these, and unfortunately I predict we’ll find out that the Church or perhaps Catholic organizations have secondary or tertiary ties to such folks. Catholic Campaign for Human Development ring any bells?
I really do hope to be proven wrong. History tells me to expect the worst.
