Gosnell Redux? I Sure Hope Not, But…

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.

    The dike may have sprung another leak. There is a story with similar accusations coming out of Texas. It would be surprising if more of these don’t start cascading out. An industry built around murder and a calculated lack of governmental oversight can’t help but spawn increasingly depraved behavior. Evil by its nature is not content with half-measures; it doesn’t drag a man partway down and say “far enough.” By the grace of God may these horrors wake up the somnambulant in our nation.

    We are not alone in feeling this is not isolated — and to underscore how far the culture of death has deluded itself, witness the social media buzz resulting from the verdict. Pro-abortion folks refuse to acknowledge his infant victims as victims or persons, and they blame us for driving women to Gosnell by making abortions difficult to come by. The devil is called the deceiver and Father of Lies for good reason.

    Like cockroaches, where you see one …
