I believe in the protection of innocent life. In fact, I have a fictional pro-life story due out some time in the future. Because I feel so strongly about this, I wanted to discuss a huge case that ‘s currently underway.
If you’ve been following the Gosnell case closely, you’ll know that this so-called doctor was found guilty of 3 counts of murder. I advise researching the story for the details as they’re too gruesome for me to post here.
What I do want to discuss is the truth that has revealed itself in the story. One is that in many states abortion is legal up until 24 weeks. Can you imagine that? A child is fully formed at 24 weeks. You can feel the kick of a 24 week baby. You are 6 weeks pregnant at 24 weeks. You are heading into your 3rd trimester at 24 weeks gestation. I’m currently 24 weeks pregnant!
The other truth that this case reveals? If this man was found guilty of killing babies outside the womb that survived abortions, what’s the difference between a child in gestation at that same age? What makes them worthy of life outside the womb that doesn’t make them worthy inside? Gosnell was found guilty of murder for killing these babies, so why is not considered murder when a child is killed inside the womb?
What are your thoughts about this case?
