This is not the type of topic I usually blog on, but the lack of media attention to this horrifying case is appalling! How can it be ignored?

Philadelphia Abortion Clinic Horror. We’ve forgotten what belongs on Page One.

Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven’t heard about these sickening accusations?

It’s not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell’s former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart….

You don’t have to oppose abortion rights to find late-term abortion abhorrent or to find the Gosnell trial eminently newsworthy. This is not about being “pro-choice” or “pro-life.” It’s about basic human rights.

The deafening silence of too much of the media, once a force for justice in America, is a disgrace.

Thank you Kirsten Powers at USA Today for having the courage to write this article.

UPDATE: here is a 20 minute documentary on this case: 3801 Lancaster.   (Thanks to this blogger who brought the video to my attention.)

Another update: here is a link to the Gosnell grand jury report – all 281 pages. Read the horror for yourself.  Read it and weep.
