Blood stains, severed limbs, the taking of innocent human life. Our nation is horrified by the terrorist attack in Boston yesterday, but what I just described is another case of cold-blooded killing that the national media has neglected to report. It is of the trial of Kermit Gosnell, the notorious late-term abortionist in Philadelphia who is accused of murdering a patient by administering a lethal overdose of drugs. He's also accused of snipping the spinal cords of seven babies born alive in his filthy clinic known as the "House of Horrors."

Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life endured the shocking testimony describing deplorable conditions. Furniture in the recovery room was stained with blood. Cats roamed freely and left droppings about. The janitor testified to unclogging toilet drains where baby arms would regularly come up.  Jars of tiny baby feet lined clinic shelves. Pavone described the trial as something out of Nuremburg. Yet the media is AWOL.

According to Lifesite News "Gosnell is accused by Former abortion worker Sherry West who testified that she heard a baby “screaming” and “screeching” during an "abortion" that took place at Kermit Gosnell's “House of Horrors” abortion facility. The proprietor, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, asked her to help him with something and directed her to another room. There an 18-to-24-inch baby, who did not yet have eyes, was lying in a clear glass pan, she recalled in horror. It was “screeching, making this noise” that “sounded like a little alien," she said. It “really freaked me out,” she said, causing her to leave the room."

I'm grieved to write this post. I'm sickened by the detailed descriptions of evil and appalled that this human rights atrocity took place in the United States. I'm just as appalled that the media is turning a blind eye to it. It is likely that Gosnell murdered hundreds of babies born alive while practicing for some 40 years. Is the media really that pro-abortion? This is a story that should be front page news on every U.S. paper, but it is not.
