"It’s been over 40 years since the Supreme Court made its radical decision to legalize abortion on demand. To do that, the court had to dehumanize the infant in the womb, so that the babies couldn’t be protected by law. Since then millions have been aborted.
"When I read the Associated Press article about the Philadelphia abortion doctor's murder trial, I felt sick. I certainly understand the chief medical examiner’s bafflement when he was handed 47 frozen fetuses recovered from Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s clinic.
"Dr. Gosnell is accused of performing late-term abortions, killing one patient, and allegedly killing babies who were born alive. Another abortion provider, Dr. Charles Benjamin, was called to testify as a prosecution expert. He compared his clinic to Gosnell’s clinics and said that he doesn’t do abortions after 21 weeks of gestation. By his own admission, Benjamin has performed 40,000 abortions.
"Why are babies being aborted? Because they are an inconvenience to the mother and a way to make abortion providers rich. When are we going to recognize that a child in the womb is a child? We have machines to prove it. When we dehumanize the infant in the womb, we dehumanize ourselves. Where is the intelligence that makes us human?"
