Kermit Gosnell has been found guilty. Guilty of murdering babies.
But if he had proven that he’d killed ’em quicker, he would have gotten off. Scott free.
Kermit’s downfall was that he was a lousy murderer. Instead of killing in the legal zone – the mother’s womb – he botched his ‘operations’. So he had to use a pair of scissors on his tiny victims once they were born.
It is disgusting, of course, that he did this.
But ‘Doctor’ Gosnell is actually not the worst entity involved in this messy murder. It is the state.
America provides a kill zones where babies are butchered without legal consequence. Instead, payments are made from the taxpayers’ purse to those who engage in the butchery.
The logical inconsistency is that if the abortionist provides his ‘service’ a little late, he will be charged with murder.
A five minute difference between the time of death can make all the difference between a state-paid bonus or a state-funded prosecutor ruining your day.
Australia is no different.
This lack of logic is not unnoticed, as new-age Australian ethicists have pointed out. They highlight that there is no moral difference between ending a child’s life prior to birth or doing it afterwards.
What they say is true. The scary thing is that they accept that abortion is morally legitimate.
Abortion provides the slippery slope of moral equivalence that their argument supporting infanticide needs.
The new-age these ‘ethicists’ herald is brutal. There are no limits. The power of death is a privilege now given to men.
This freedom to kill is based on a denial of God. In denying God, each man assumes divine power.
Fortunately, Kermit’s bloody works have dented any moves towards infanticide, and instead raised questions about the morality of abortion. Society is now forced to examine why he is a murderer in one circumstance but the recipient of state-funding in another that is morally equivalent and delivers an identical result – the brutal death of an unloved human being.
And while a revealing light is exposed on the practice of state-sanctioned death, it will be so much more difficult for governments to legislate for new kill zones in aged-care homes or maternity wards.
Hopefully, in examining this evil, it may also lead people to understand that there can be no evil without God. For evil is nothing more than the rejection of God and His goodness.
