Last night as I watched 3801 Lancaster I was sick to my stomach. You may be asking what is 3801 Lancaster? I am glad you asked because I didn’t know about the Gosnell trials either until my twitter feed blew up with people tweeting about it. 3801 Lancaster was the address to the abortion clinic that Kermitt Gosnell performed infanticide and the murder of two women. The details are horrific and shocking, but yet it is not being covered in the media. I mean when sworn testimony states “it rained fetuses” and that they decapitated babies by snipping their spinal cords, why isn’t this being covered by news outlets?
To the American Media, it seems, that the New Unpardonable Sin is to speak out against abortion. Honestly, to speak out against anything that would hinder or make their worldview look bad is an Unpardonable Sin. If you do speak out and go against the American Media you are vilified by that same media. We have seen it time and time again with Tim Tebow, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly and others. Kristen Powers wrote a column in the USA Today asking us to compare the coverage Rush got over Sandra Fluke comments to the Gosnell trial. She states Gosnell “doesn’t make the cut”. I believe it doesn’t make the cut because this makes abortion look atrocious and not “pro-choice”.
I know I have focused on the media coverage, but that is a side note to this whole story. The real story is that babies and women were murdered and we (government and citizens) sat by and let it happen. RC Sproul JR sent out a tweet last night that impacted me and I hope it does the same to you “I fear abortion won’t end until Christians are as aghast at polite, sanitary chemical abortions as they are at Kermit Gosnell”
As i meditated on this story last night this passage from Isaiah 5 came to mind,
18 Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of falsehood,
who draw sin as with cart ropes,
19 who say: “Let him be quick,
let him speed his work
that we may see it;
let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw near,
and let it come, that we may know it!”
20 Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
and shrewd in their own sight!
22 Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine,
and valiant men in mixing strong drink,
23 who acquit the guilty for a bribe,
and deprive the innocent of his right!
God have mercy and help us.
