Precisely. Nobody is ever for abortion. They support choice. Babies aren’t involved, fetuses are. And not even Gosnell is an abortionist. He’s simply an abortion “provider” who just went a little too far.
If unborn children have no rights or value except what their mother conveys or denies, why shouldn’t Gosnell have stored their bits and pieces in jars scattered throughout a clinic prosecutors called a filthy “house of horrors”? Why should he be charged with a crime at all? Sure, abortion is illegal in Pennsylvania after 24 weeks, but isn’t that an arbitrary number? Medically speaking, what’s magic about week 25?
The politics of abortion normally require that such questions not even be asked….
Viable babies whose heads remain in the womb can legally have their brains sucked out, while those who are allowed to be born then snipped by a lazy abortionist are somehow deemed more human….
Is what [Gosnell] allegedly did really so far removed from the practices you defend?
Or do you really believe unborn babies are no more human than the hamburgers I eat?
