Now I See

Canada is only 1 of 4 countries worldwide without an abortion law whatsoever. As a result, abortion is legal throughout all nine of pregnancy for any or no reason at all. Visit "Now I See" for updates and discussions on the issue of legalized abortion in Canada and abroad.

No Philadelphia Freedom for These Babies

The grisly events that were uncovered with the arrest of a Philadelphia “doctor” and 9 others (including his wife) ought to serve as a stark wake up call for all of us. Dr. Kermit Gosnell was arrested and charged with 8 counts of murder for practicing his rather unique method of abortion.

Gosnell would induce labour in women who were 6-8 months pregnant, deliver their babies alive, and then proceed to sever their spinal cords by jamming a pair of surgical scissors into the back of their skulls and begin cutting away. Gosnell calmly termed his technique “snipping.”

Puts one in the mind of Joseph Mengele who also carried out horrific procedures on living human beings, all for a good cause you see. I suspect what Mengele and Gosnell hold in common is that they both rationalized that their victims – Jews for Mengele and unborn babies for Gosnell - were not really “persons” and so what they were doing was no different than operating on a tonsil or tumour. Boy are they in for a rude awakening.

For someone who works daily to educate on abortion, graphic stories of unwanted babies being brutalized to death are par for the course. Nothing new or shocking here; it happens every day.

Every day in Canada some 350 unborn babies are sliced and snipped to pieces by abortionists in our local hospitals and so-called clinics. Granted most of them are smaller and younger than the ones Gosnell is being charged with murdering, but does that really make it any less horrific? How can it be that simply because a baby is younger, or smaller, or in a different location it is acceptable chop them into little pieces and discard them like medical waste?

Some philosophers believe there is a little bit of Mengele in all of us. Don’t look now but there’s a lot of Gosnell in hospitals and clinics across Canada.
