9/25/13. Kermit Gosnell Uses Margaret Sanger’s Arguments to Defend His Abortions, Infanticides. John Jansen, Lifenews.com
“I’ve often thought that one of the best things that could happen to the pro-life movement is for the “pro-choice” movement to get its own 24-hour cable channel.
Just give them a camera, give them a microphone, and let them talk. And talk. And talk some more. The more they try to justify their position, the more self-evidently appalling their arguments become.
This is what went through my mind as I read excerpts from “Gosnell’s Babies,” a story released in Philadelphia Magazine.
In it, the country’s most notorious abortionist, Kermit Gosnell, is quoted as saying:
In an ideal world, we’d have no need for abortion. But bringing a child into the world when it cannot be provided for, that there are not sufficient systems to support, is a greater sin. I considered myself to be in a war against poverty, and I feel comfortable with the things I did and the decisions I made.
There’s a word for Gosnell’s belief system: eugenics.
In fact, note the striking similarity between these words spoken by Gosnell and those spoken by Planned Parenthood founder and eugenicist extraordinaire Margaret Sanger in an eye-opening interview conducted by Mike Wallace in 1957:
WALLACE: Do you believe in sin — When I say believe I don’t mean believe in committing sin do you believe there is such a thing as a sin?
SANGER: I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world — that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically. Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they’re born. That to me is the greatest sin — that people can — can commit.
Also of note is the fact that Gosnell is convinced that his conviction was motivated by “religion”:
“I have come to believe that the presumption of guilt was compounded by religious convictions,” Gosnell said. “ … Were you aware that Seth [Williams, Philadelphia’s district attorney] was an altar boy? Did you know of the strong Catholic presence in the homicide division?”
…As if the only people who believe infanticide-by-decapitation is monstrously wrong are Catholics.
