The recent grand jury indictment of abortionist Kermit Gosne.ll painfully underscores how vital the pro-life movement in this country is. For years, pro-lifers have been trying to raise flags about Gosne.ll, only to be dismissed by the pro-abortionists as using lies and exaggerations to try to interfere with a woman's "right" to kill her unborn baby. The pro-abortion politicians in PA intentionally disregarded the numerous complaints (by patients!) against the abortionist, specifically because they didn't want to be seen as interfering with the "right" to abortion. Although pro-abortionists can shrug off the brutal murder of newborn babies, what about the women that Gosne.ll maimed and killed? You would think that a movement that purports to be the ones who truly care about women would be horrified at the way this abortionist butchered them. Yet they don't seem to care; in fact, the National Abortion Federation, who claim to review abortionists for safety so that women will feel comfortable having them kill their babies, find enough wrong in Gosne.ll's clinic to deny him membership, yet never bothered to report him to authorities (who, as we've seen, ignored complaints anyway, but perhaps they would have listened if NAF said something?) How many women were seriously injured because NAF didn't want to risk making abortion look bad by reporting Gosne.ll? The grand jury report is easy to find and extremely disturbing and difficult to read, but I encourage you to read it. It's vital to know what we're up against.
Ironically, this all came to light just days before the anniversary of Roe V. Wade. The mainstream media, as usual, ignores the millions who turn out around the country to stand up for the unborn, as well as the women victimized by abortion, but I do feel like the tide is turning. With the serious advancements in ultra-sounds and fetal medicine, the humanity of the unborn is undeniable. For 40 years the "worthless clump of cells" mantra has been crammed down our throats, and every day that passes it's more and more exposed for the hideous lie that it is. When many women now see their baby's heart beating on screen, just 6 or 7 weeks into the pregnancy, it's more difficult to convince them that it's not a baby, not worthy of love or attachment or life (which is precisely why the pro-abortionists fight tooth and nail against letting abortion-minded women see their unborn children via u/s). When most people can think of at least one child they know personally who was born seriously premature and lived, it's that much harder to convince them that late-term abortions should be legal, for any reason. The only difference between a baby born at 25 weeks fighting for her life in the NICU and one laying dead and dismembered in an abortionist's trash can is that one was wanted, and one was not.
It's difficult to read about what happened in PA and not be enraged. But as a former abortion advocate, I have to say that the number one difference between pro-life and pro-choice is love. I am constantly amazed at the love that permeates the pro-life movement. By contrast, the pro-choice movement is filled with anger and hatred. It isn't just the babies and mothers victimized by abortion that need our love, but the abortion advocates as well; maybe even most of all. In Matthew 5:43-45 Jesus Christ tells us, "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Heavenly Father, for He makes His sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and unjust." So love, pray, and never stop fighting!
