Feet in jars: Gosnell trial fails to grab attention of the media

Feet in jars: Gosnell trial fails to grab attention of the media, There were baby feet in jars, and that was just the beginning of the horrors exposed during the murder trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the Pennsylvania abortion doctor. The big question is why the media has not gone into a hyperventilation mode over this story, or according to Kirsten Powers in USA Today on April 11, why has the story not at least made the front page?

Among the testimony given during the trial, there are so many things that stand out as morally apprehensible and unquestionably criminal. The live births that were treated to a special “death by snipping the spinal cord” technique must be paramount.

Over the course of Gosnell’s career, how many babies did he murder this way? One employee testified that he alone witnessed over 100. He also described blood and guts everywhere. Kirsten Powers reminded us of the news coverage of this testimony by the AP:

"Staffer describes chaos at PA abortion clinic."

Chaos is all it was.

Of course, the deaths by “snipping” already surpassed the Sandy Hook death toll, but there was little reaction to the killing of these many babies: it was just chaos.

It appears that people are not quite as callous and acclimated to the killing of newborns as the media seems to be; there has been an outcry on Twitter about this situation.
