When America Looks Evil In The Face

"Before you were formed in the womb, I knew you." God.

Abortionist Dr. Kermitt Gosnell may best be characterized as a man with a pair of scissors in one hand, while the other is a clenched fist extended upward. He has been charged with the murder of 8 individuals---1 adult female, 7 babies.

While God knows these and the other 55-million babies who have been killed by the abortion industry, you and I will not know them, nor are we hearing much about the trial of those who killed these 7 children because the press is standing in the abortion clinic room assisting the doctor with his procedures.

The press is refusing to cover the murder trial of abortionist Dr. Kermitt Gosnell.

Local Philadelphia journalist J.D. Mullane said it all when she published this picture along with her column.

Not only is the press refusing to write about the trial, they are not even showing up to cover it.

Congressmen are now taking to the House floor in an attempt to force the press to cover this important news story.

Ten Congressmen took to the floor of the US House of Representatives last week to shed some light on the Gosnell trial.

Among them was Rep. Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican who says the media has intentionally and purposefully "ignored" the trial.

Smith told the House, "If Dr. Gosnell had walked into a nursery, shot seven infants with an AR-15, it would have been a national story and the subject of presidential hand wringing."

Indeed it would.

In fact, Lew Waters, who regularly reads this blog, has published an article in his "Clark County Conservative" titled, "Liberals Go Berserk Over GOP Auctioning An AR-15".

Lew points out in his article how the press manipulates stories and public impression by the use of certain words and images or by the absence of certain words and images. I recommend you read Waters article.

Often the press is more focused on manipulating public opinion than on simply reporting the news.

In the Gosnell case, they are not reporting on the trial because they don't want America to look "evil" in the face. They are providing cover for the abortion industry.

But the dam is breaking.

Mullane says a few reporters stop by the trial from time to time. "The AP stopped in but the reporter told me that resources were thin and trial coverage is not gavel to gavel."

She reported that Thursday's testimony had the most sensational and likely the most gruesome details and that the court staff told her it would attract journalists from around the nation and they had set up for about 40 reporters.

"But," Mullane writes, "All Thursday morning, as Ashley Baldwin testified to horror after horror, only one reporter was seated in the reserved seating...me."

Heather Wilhelm at Real Clear Politics has written a column, "America's Stunning Abortion Mind Block," where she asks why the press is blocking the story from the public.

Clearly, it's the pictures that support the eyewitness accounts of what took place in that abortion clinic.

She says America doesn't want to see it and references a legal case from some years ago where a pro-choice church in Denver sued a pro-life group who were carrying signs on the street---some of which had images of aborted babies---uncomfortable pictures.

The court agreed with the pro-abortion church and upheld a prior decision to ban such pictures because they are "gruesome images."

This story is beyond "The King Has No Clothes" as an illustration.

It illustrates a dark and evil face committed to abortion in the spirit of Planned Parenthood's founder Margaret Sanger. It reflects the spirit of Antichrist.

It also points to a rebellion toward God and His creation.

These "gruesome images" the Colorado court banned were children created in the image and likeness of God, known by Him while they were still in the womb but unknown to those who do not know God but have assumed the role of God.

To God, these children were created for a purpose, a special place, in His heart and in this world.

To those who do not know God, they are merely another medical billing for the clinic, another appointment, another person who will not grow up on the welfare roll or another expression of "choice" and "women's reproductive health care rights."

America has faced evil many times in our short history. We faced down evil in World War I and World War II. And we faced down the "Evil Empire" in the 1980's, allowing millions of people to become free as that "wall was torn down" and the Evil Empire collapsed.

When a nation forgets God, that nation stares at the face of evil in a different way. It refuses to discuss it and works to hide the evidence.

May God deliver us from evil.
