Call your Senators and Representatives. Do not let pass this bill!! I normally avoid commenting on abortion, but this needs to be shared. It needs to go viral and the phone lines of Washington, DC need to go down because of traffic over THIS bill. If you do not know who Dr. Gosnell is then google him, or better yet, Wikipedia him. They have a link to his trial transcripts with photos you do not want to see, because you will never be able to unsee them.
Bags and bags of babies and parts of babies stuffed in refrigerators and freezers, and piled up in the basement almost to the ceiling. They had been there for weeks. Jars of baby’s feet, just the feet, stacked up on a shelf in a closet. A fully formed male baby in a cardboard box shoved under the exam/operation table. Cat feces everywhere, including in the exam rooms. The exam tables caked in dried blood. He was known for doing late term, illegal abortions. You have cash, then it did not matter how pregnant you were, or how old you were, or where you were from. Women from out of state would frequently search for him and his special services.
Women would show up early, stripped from the waist down, given heavy doses of abortion drugs several times while waiting, and doses of pain medications, anti-emetic drugs, and tranquilizers. These women would sit in the ‘waiting’ room wrapped in a bloody blanket,(they did laundry one a week), in chairs contaminated with blood and cat urine and God only knows what else. Frequently, women would stand up to be ‘checked’ and the babies would FALL OUT. Gosnell would show up sometime that afternoon or evening. The women who had not already aborted were put on a table and the baby’s head sucked out, he would make an incision on the back of their neck and “snip”(Gosnell’s term) the spine, then pull the baby the rest of the way out. Sometimes the babies were still alive moving and crying, so he would bash their head. There was even one incident where a member of the staff PLAYED with the baby, before she killed it. Women were showing up at the local ERs with pieces of baby and placenta still inside of them. What I am telling you is just a tiny part of the horror revealed during this trial. ONE SUCTION TUBE IN THE WHOLE CLINIC, for removing the babies or intubation. THINK ABOUT THAT!!
Complaints from the ERs were made, but did HHS ever do inspections, no. The last one had been in 1993. Gosnell was a public figure. He ‘took care’ of his ‘community’. He was hailed a a wonderful, African American doctor. He opened his Women’s clinic in the worst area, to be convienent to his african american patients. Two of which he murdered.
Do you have a visual and olfactory sense of this clinic and it’s victims. Can you smell the cat feces, blood, and rotting flesh? Can you picture that fully formed baby boy haphazardly thrown into a cardboard box, a small cut on the back of his neck? Can you see the pile of unsealed, red plastic bags in the basement?
CAN YOU IMAGINE THIS BEING ALMOST LEGAL? This bill is too close to THIS reality.
