*POSTER'S NOTE: Could have posted this elsewhere, different Cults involved in this issue, definitely glaring hypocrisy, but here it is...

A friend of mine writes for another website and periodically allows me to see his articles in advance. When I saw this one, I asked for permission to use it for today’s post and if I could change the title, to which permission was granted. Therefore, with thanks to Giacomo, I trust this article impacts you as much as it did me:
Many abortion advocates have no clue what goes on at the clinics they endorse, nor do they really want to know. They believe that women have this God-given right to say what happens to their body even if it means murdering an unborn child.
But what about the babies? Do they have any rights?
Sadly, and profoundly perverse is knowing that many people who favor abortion and the right to kill an unborn child are also animal rights activists. Many members of PETA are pro-abortion. They protest and picket cosmetic manufacturers and research labs concerning the treatment of the animals while at the same time they are all in favor in the slaughter of innocent lives that never get the chance to see the light of day.
Vegans won’t eat anything related to animal products, including eggs, milk, meat, fish, poultry or even a clear chicken broth. They believe to do so is cruel to the animals. I’ve listened to interviews with vegans who were protesting for the right of a woman to have her unborn baby sucked or dragged out of her body a piece at a time and then stand there and declare it’s cruel kill a chick and eat it. But no, not unborn babies!
I’ve seen cars with a bumper sticker on one side saying ‘Pro Choice’ and a bumper sticker on the other side saying ‘The question is not, can they reason? nor, can they talk? But, can they suffer?’ with a picture of a cow. This same person is worried about a cow suffering and not a human baby that was ripped apart in the womb, or worse yet, born alive and then stabbed with a pair of scissors to make sure it doesn’t survive.
If you think I’m kidding or making this up, you’re dead wrong.
The West Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society is an abortion clinic in the center of attention at the moment as two of the workers have pled guilty to killing one mother with an overdose of drugs and killing babies born alive by stabbing them in the spinal cord with a pair a scissors. The doctor who runs the clinic, along with several other employees, have all been charged with performing illegal late-term abortions and with the deaths of babies and at least one mother. Their cases are still pending.
In one of the incidents, the clinic worker found a late-term baby still alive after the mother had given birth to it in the toilet. The worker, Andrea Morton, 34, admitted to stabbing the baby to death. According to the reports, workers at the clinic had been shown by the doctor, Kermit Gosnell, how to take a pair of scissors and severe the spinal cords of any late-term babies that were born alive. Once the spinal cord is severed, the infant quickly dies.
The other staff member pleading guilty is 52 year old Sherry West who admitted to giving a Bhutanese immigrant too much Demerol leading to the death of the 41 year old mother who was 16 weeks pregnant. West and another staff member, Lynda Williams who also has been charged, were attending to Karnamaya Mongar while Dr. Gosnell was not even in the clinic. After Mongar slipped into a drug induced coma, she was taken to the hospital. West accompanied her to the hospital and took along the medical records, but by the time the hospital staff was able to review those records, they had been altered in an attempt to cover up the gross negligence.
Dr. Gosnell, of course, denies all of the charges that have been filed against him, including using any procedure such as stabbing or severing the spinal cord to kill any living babies. He is being held on $2 million bail.
I don’t know how Gosnell can deny all of the charges when Morton produced a cell phone photo of one infant in particular. A 30 week old unborn infant was delivered alive but immediately killed by the attending staff. Three of the clinic staff, including Morton, were surprised at how large the baby was, so she took a photo of it with her cell phone. She subsequently turned her cell phone and photo over to the FBI who has been conducting the investigation.
When authorities raided the clinic, they found a refrigerator full of plastic bags containing numerous dismembered body parts. They also learned that neither Morton nor West have been licensed or trained to carry out the procedures they do on a regular basis. It was also learned that West has hepatitis C and often uses no surgical gloves or any other means of protection to safeguard a patient from contracting the illness.
With her guilty plea, West has offered to help prosecutors in hopes of getting a lesser sentence. At the moment, she could be facing up to 140 years in prison for her part in the deaths.
It appalls me to see just how little value some people place on human life. It’s bad enough to destroy the child in the womb, but willfully kill it after it has been born has to be one of most heinous crimes there is. In the Old Testament, this would have been punishable by death, and who am I to argue with the wisdom of our Creator, who made us in His image.
What has happened at the West Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society is an example of the depravity of man and how heartless abortionists can be. This needs to be broadcast across the nation and used by Pro-Life advocates to demonstrate the horrors and inhumanity of abortion and put an end to the senseless and cold blooded murder of millions of unborn children.
