Someone get the staff of the New York Times down to NYU for a Biology 101 class. The Gray Lady reported today that abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell was found guilty of killing fetuses.
Never mind that a fetus is an unborn child in the womb, not a baby who was killed after purposefully being birthed in an abortion process that is essentially infanticide. Unlike what the Times reported, a jury of 12 people, who clearly paid attention in seventh grade Life Science class, convicted him of three counts of first-degree murder.
But, as the Washington Free Beacon first noted, the New York Times referred to those infants as fetuses six times in the papers report on the conviction.
From the NYT:
1. The verdict came after a five-week trial in which the prosecution and the defense battled over whether the fetuses Dr. Gosnell was charged with killing were alive when they were removed from their mothers.
2. Dr. Gosnell was acquitted of one first-degree murder charge involving an aborted fetus.
3. Clinic workers who appeared as witnesses for the prosecution said some of the fetuses appeared to move or make noises.
4. Dr. Gosnell kept the severed feet of aborted fetuses in dozens of jars around his clinic.
5. Mr. McMahon argued that there was no evidence that any of the fetuses were born alive.
6. Mr. McMahon also dismissed prosecutors arguments that one of the fetuses, Baby C, was alive after being aborted.
maybe if we’re really lucky he will pay a nice house call on the stupid “fetuses” who run a certain dying newspaper?
just kidding anyway.
we have to stay nice
think nice thoughts
at least he’s going to prison!
Liberals are so...stupid.
Lib translation: fetus = unborn human being.
For liberals: “=”...google it.
The NYT says (insert Hillary’s shrieking voice here), “What difference does it make?”
Baby = Inconvenient life
Leftists pathetically and desperately trying to control the language.
Hey... I just realized I’m a full-grown fetus!
Dead fish deserve better than to be wrapped in that fecal pulp.
In the meantime the NYT is killing respectable journalism.
If the truth does not fit the approved narrative.... change the story.... Nothing new here.
Is it a fetus if it has a Mother that is was just removed from?
I thought Mothers gave birth to babies.
How do you “kill” something that isn’t “life”?
What a screwed up society we are in.
As a rule, yes, except for the mothers Gosnell killed after puncturing their uterus with rusty instruments.
Then you get a "two-fer".
Dead mom, dead baby.
The liberal daily double.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Courts, politicians, writers etc. turned employed pretzel logic defending the indefensible when it came to slavery in the 1800s. Eventually the institution fell as much of its own unsupportable weight (although CWI had a lot to do with it as well). You got the exact same thing going on here. Dred Scott wasn’t a person so he had to be returned to his owner. Gosnell was killing “fetuses”. No real difference here.
So - given that - I wonder why we don’t spend more time equating abortion to slavery - as in both denied personhood to people who were clearly people and both saw implausible contortionist logic to preserve the fiction.
Actually this would be a positive if he was actually convicted of killing fetuses....then all abortion is murder, as we already know it to be.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
You know, I think snipping the neck of a tiny baby struggling for life is definitely murder. And he was amazed at the verdict, so the news reports.
I wouldn’t give the bastid a lethal injection, I’d give the bastid a shot at Old Sparky. Or, if he bowed up at me and talked some silliness, I’d give him a rope.
Better than what he gave them “fetuses.”
See ya in hell murderer. I’ll be the one with the big knife, chopping the huevos off of murderous bastids like you.
Somebody needs to tell the fetuses down at the New Yawk Times that fetuses do not try to swim and crawl out of a toilet when some maggot **** abortion doctor throws them in there.
Their attempt to obfuscate that Gosnell killed born babies by saying he killed “fetuses” backfired, as it is an admission that a fetus is alive and killing one, as in abortion, should be called murder.
