Philadelphia abortion clinic horror: We’ve forgotten what belongs on Page One

Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure…

…There is a reason the late Democratic senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan called this procedure infanticide…

…Let me state the obvious. This should be front page news. When Rush Limbaugh attacked Sandra Fluke, there was non-stop media hysteria. The venerable NBC Nightly News’ Brian Williams intoned, “A firestorm of outrage from women after a crude tirade from Rush Limbaugh,” as he teased a segment on the brouhaha. Yet, accusations of babies having their heads severed — a major human rights story if there ever was one — doesn’t make the cut.

You don’t have to oppose abortion rights to find late-term abortion abhorrent or to find the Gosnell trial eminently newsworthy. This is not about being “pro-choice” or “pro-life.” It’s about basic human rights.

The deafening silence of too much of the media, once a force for justice in America, is a disgrace.

I Hate To Go On and On About Gosnell 

But, dammit, it ought to be a huge story. There are an awful lot of other intriguing stories out there, but none of them compares with this one in terms of the level of sheer atrocity and the lack of coverage…
