  1. I had caught a little of the Gosnell story the other day. The piece you presented certainly goes into much greater detail.

    The story is horrifying. I could only read about a quarter of the article before I couldn’t take any more, and I’m usually not that squeamish. After reading the that much, I can certainly see where the pro-life forces could use this as an anti-abortion issue.

    But, of course, the situation is more complicated than just “these abortions are evil”. We are dealing with poor women who have little access to proper medical care, and who have been denied good abortions services by the same people who would use this as pro-life propaganda. These were desperate women trying to deal with terrible problems life had given them. In desperation, they had sought out this quack and his atrocious methods. In a microcosm, this is what we had before Roe v. Wade with back alley abortions, poor-to-nonexistent medical care dealing in illegal abortions.
