Macabre case involving abortionist receives zero national attention

One of the employees who worked for infamous abortionist Kermit Gosnell described to a jury how she heard a baby “screaming” during a live-birth abortion, but the shocking story continues to receive virtually no national attention.
Asked to describe the screaming, Sherry West responded, “It wasn’t fully developed, It didn’t have eyes or a mouth but it was like screeching, making this noise. It was weird. It sounded like a little alien,” adding that the incident happened during the abortion of a baby that was 18-24 inches in length.
The baby was then left on a glass tray after which West told her co-worker to contact Gosnell and fled the room.
West explained that she preferred to think of the aborted babies, many of which were terminated after having already been born, as “specimens” because “it was easier to deal with mentally.”
Despite admitting that the incident, “really freaked me out.” West remains loyal to Gosnell despite the fact that the Philadelphia doctor faces a possible death sentence for his macabre role in running the Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society clinic.
As we previously reported, Gosnell’s clinic was a literal house of horrors in which he liked to keep mementos of dead babies such as severed feet.
The Grand Jury report details how Gosnell and his staff probably carried hundreds of illegal abortions of babies over 24 weeks old, yet the facility was not inspected by government officials for a period of 17 years.
“In their raid on Gosnell’s clinic, federal agents discovered, among other horrors, the remains of 45 infants dumped in milk jugs, juice cartons, and pet food containers — all stored in a refrigerator and freezer on the premises,” reported The New American. “Agents also found jars containing the severed limbs of babies, and conditions they called ‘by far, the worst’ they had ever seen, with blood on the clinic floors, ‘filthy and unsanitary’ surgeries, broken and dirty medical instruments and equipment, along with a ‘stench of urine’ and even cat excrement.”
Critics have pointed out that while the story has attracted local attention, it has barely achieved any coverage from mainstream media at the national level.
“The Gosnell story is one the press hates. They’ve barely reported on it, at all; within days of its breaking, an online search would produce blogs talking about the horror, but not mainstream media outlets; they do not find this sort of blood lead-worthy,” writes Elizabeth Scalia.
Despite Gosnell’s actions being described as a “horrific crime,” some of the very same hideous procedures that were practiced under his direction are celebrated by liberals as a sacred “reproductive right” when they take place inside the womb.
