Does Dr. Gosnell Deserve Death Penalty for Baby Abortion Murders
Dr. Kermit Gosnell willfully murdered innocent
babies born alive and faces death penalty
Dr. Gosnell was an abortionist who not only murdered the innocents with a passion that can only have been replicated during the dark days of Nazi Germany’s practice of eliminating the Jewish people during World War II. Now with Gosnell’s conviction, this dark pathological practice can no longer be ignored by the media and even those who claim to support abortion rights.
Dr. Gosnell, according to the Wall Street Journal, was also convicted of involuntary manslaughter for the death of Karnamaya Mongar, who died due to a sedation overdose. Yet, this murder trial which produced dozens of counts by a grand jury against the doctor’s murderous practices also created a media blackout that noted journalist Kirsten Powers noted in her USA Today op-ed, “The deafening silence of too much of the media, once a force for justice in America, is a disgrace.” Kirsten went on to rightly stress, “This should be front page news!”
Now one of the most important chapters in the annuals of American jurisprudence will occur in the coming days. Should Dr. Kermit Gosnell be sentenced to death for his horrifying murders which shock the conscience of his jurors? For these jurors the memories of coming to terms with count after count of Dr. Gosnell’s horrifying misdeeds will surely haunt them past their decision to give him life without parole or death by execution.
This decision by the jurors actually is a turning point for those who support breaking the binding repressive liberal media attacks on those who have stood for supporting a baby’s right to life and to be called a baby and not a “fetus”. It is important that this distinction is heralded across this nation, now and forever more. A baby was murdered, and a man was convicted for each and every murder the jury found Gosnell guilty of.
But the decision in this case does not end the dialogue concerning the murdering of babies who are aborted. Rather it signals a clarion call for each and every man and woman who understands that a baby is born and is viable and has a right to live in this country, not by political decision but by his or her God given right!
If Dr. Gosnell takes the stand to ask for leniency from the jury who can order that he be put to death, he should bear witness to the truth of his guilt and be willing to take the full measure of the punishment. In truth, Dr. Gosnell should be punished with the ultimate sentence, since he committed the ultimate crime in depriving these innocent babies the right to life given to each by their creator, God.
