Another day has gone by, and the media is continuing their avoidance of the Kermit Gosnell murder trial that is taking place in Philadelphia, PA.
If you have not heard, Kermit Gosnell, a doctor who performed abortions at his office is currently on trial facing 8 murder charges. One for a patient that died in his care, and the other seven are babies that he murdered. Reports have been continuing to come out on the horrific deaths of babies at the hands of Mr. Gosnell.
Thus far we have not heard a peep from the White House or any big news source other than Fox News. Then even when Fox News covered it, the anchor did not want to go into the horrific details, which on some level is reasonable, and it is good that they chose to set aside time to talk about this trial.
But does that leave everyone else exempt? Do they think it is too horrific to talk about, or that it is just a local story that is not worth their time? The Washington Post had been throwing the story off and labeling it is a local story and apparently wasn’t worth their time. But they recently gave in after receiving criticism from its readers.
Speculation does not do much good, but let’s say that the story is to violent for places like CNN to cover. In a culture that promotes violent films in which murder is common place and is now even used for comedy, how does this explanation even make sense? Our society has become morally bankrupt and to say that they refuse to cover something because of the horrific content denotes that a sense of morality was used in the decision. But we all know that this is certainly not the case. It is a well-known saying in the media the if it ‘bleeds it leads’. Any heart wrenching story is almost immediately picked up to major news outlets and sometimes carried across the country.
I have a strong feeling that the reason behind the medias blackout of the Gosnell trial is not because of the horrific content of the trial. It is because it sheds a bad light on the abortion industry and hurts the liberal claim that banning abortions would force women into going to back alley abortions and having a bigger chance of dying. The fact is women are still dying from abortions, we just never hear about them, as the stories are swept under the rug and forgotten about.
That President Obama and other major political figures are ignoring this trial, shows where they really stand in the quote on quote, “War on Women”. If they respect women as much as they claim, then this trial would be at the top of their list, and they should be concerned about other women who could have been hurt by this alleged doctor. The fact that they’re ignoring this trial, and the death of one woman and a countless number of infants is very telling and people should take notice. Call your congressman, your senators, and for PA call your local representatives, if they have ignored this story and ask them why. This so-called doctor got away with murders for years, and also got away with not having his “clinic” inspected for over a decade and got away with it. Let’s not let him get off the hook as the media blacks his trial out.
Now, so far, this story has been promoted very well over social media and by great conservative blog sites like Breitbart.com and Twitchy. And I would to say thank you to the countless number of citizens who will not let the terrible actions of Kermit Gosnell go quietly into the night. Also, I must commend Fox News on mentioning and talking about the story as no other major cable channel will do.
A personal request – Make sure that you keep posting on Facebook and using the #Gosnell hashtag! Please see to it that everyone knows who Kermit Gosnell is and hat he has done.
