The verdict has come down and the sentence has been delivered, Kermit Gosnell has been found guilty in the murder of three babies. The case has brought to light what abortion actually is and it can no longer hide behind the benign euphemism it has for 40 years. Kermit Gosnell will not receive the death penalty in exchange for not appealing his case. Given his advanced age, it is doubtful he will spend too much time behind bars anyhow.
Gosnell’s crimes brings to mind the crimes of the Nazi regime and two people in particular, Adolf Eichmann and Josef Mengele. Eichmann was a Nazi officer and was the only person to be executed by the state of Israel. Mengele was a doctor who did heinous experiments on the people of Auschwitz but especially children. This is a testimony of one of the survivors of Auschwitz.
The survivors tell how as children in Auschwitz they were visited by a smiling “Uncle Mengele” who brought them candy and clothes. Then he had them delivered to his medical laboratory either in trucks painted with the Red Cross emblem or in his own personal car to undergo his experiments. “Dr Mengele had always been more interested in Tibi. I am not sure why-perhaps because he was the older twin. Mengele made several operations on Tibi. One surgery on his spine left my brother paralyzed. He could not walk anymore. Then they took out his sexual organs. After the fourth operation, I did not see Tibi anymore. I cannot tell you how I felt. It is impossible to put into words how I felt. They had taken away my father, my mother, my two older brothers-and now, my twin.” [http://www.auschwitz.dk/mengele.htm]
The truly psychotic could at least argue that Mengele’s torture and experiments led us to knowing more about the human body and how it functions. Though I would trade that knowledge to have those people back, especially the children even if it meant I would die in the process. Kermit Gosnell has no such defense. His only concern was the money he would get for each murder. Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath in which they promise to first do no harm. He transgressed that oath long ago. Gosnell’s defense is more along the lines of Eichmann who said in his defense he was just following orders. Gosnell was just doing his job.
While Mengele would escape to South America and not be held accountable for his crimes, Eichmann definitely was. Just as Gosnell was finally held responsible for his. The Holocaust Encyclopedia has this to say about Eichmann. “From his position in RSHA section IV B 4, however, Eichmann played his central role in the deportation of over 1.5 million Jews from all over Europe to killing centers and killing sites in occupied Poland and in parts of the occupied Soviet Union.” So the defense that he was just following orders doesn’t hold water, he was giving the orders.
In fact according to Gosnell’s attorney: “In a somewhat grammatically challenged statement, McMahon said, “Dr. Gosnell, he believes that what he did was not commit homicide.” [http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/gosnell-39truly-believes-in-himself39-attorney] Neither did Mengele, neither did Eichmann according to these same people. They were all just doing their job. After the horrors of the Nazi regime cam to light the world promised, “Never again.” Yet only 11 years after Eichmann was hanged in 1962, it happened again. We legalized slaughter and called it choice. We slaughtered children like lambs. We called it abortion and 40 years later it is still going on. Under Hitler 6 million Jews were killed, many of them children. Under abortion 50 million plus children have been killed. We are far worse than Mengele and Eichmann. We don’t even have the pretense of nobility, only our base and selfish wants continue to make this possible.
However with more and more reports coming out about abortion from the mainstream media [which in itself is a miracle] and people starting to see the truth of the matter, it won’t be long before abortion becomes illegal and stays illegal in this country and that the unborn will be protected under the 14th amendment like they should have been all along. The end of abortion is coming and Planned Parenthood and all abortionist should be held accountable. It is about time!
