Costello: Media Ignores Abortion Trial

Newspeak is here. And it works. And thanks to Newspeak, one of the most horrific trials in American history is proceeding with little press attention. You probably don't know who Kermit Gosnell is. What should be the trial of the century has been mostly blacked out by the mainstream media. There are a number of reasons for their negligence. One reason is that the vocabulary adopted by the elites makes the precise description of Gosnell's alleged crimes impossible. It's similar to the Associated Press' deletion of the accurate term “illegal alien” from their stylebook. I still remember how to speak English. Gosnell is accused of performing seven illegal, late-term, partial-birth abortions. In the course of these abortions, he delivered living, breathing, crying babies whom he then executed by severing their spinal cords.He decorated his office with jars containing the preserved feet of his tiny victims. They were his trophies/Michael Costello, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: We have also discussed this one before. Any further thoughts?

Abortion Doctor Faces Death Penalty

Twenty months in a refugee camp in war-torn Bhutan didn’t break Karnamaya Mongar. But the 41-year-old Virginia woman met her demise in 2009 after seeking an abortion from a Philadelphia doctor who could face the death penalty if convicted on seven counts of first-degree murder. Through a Nepalese interpreter, Mongar’s daughter, Yashoda Gurung, testified Tuesday in the ongoing trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, about the labor-inducing drugs and painkiller her mother was administered while awaiting the abortion provider to arrive for the second-trimester procedure. Gurung, 24, said she tried to wish her mother well before she was moved into the procedure room on Nov. 19, 2009, at the Women’s Medical Society clinic in West Philadelphia/Fox News. More here.

Question: The article goes on to say that the doctor also faces 7 counts of first-degree murder for allegedly killing babies who were born alive. I hadn't heard of this case until Monday. Religious conservatives say the mainstream media has ignored this case. What do you think?
