The Grand Jury pointed the finger at:
Among the more knowledgeable, there's also finger-pointing at the National Abortion Federation for not only failing to report this guy after an inspector saw his hell house firsthand, but also for working in a partnership to provide him with at lesast six illegal third-trimester abortion patients, including the mother of Baby Boy A.
Abortion advocates, of course, have been pointing fingers at prolifers. If only we had given abortionists (who would, after all, have included Kermit Gosnell) tax money, and held them less accountable, somehow the nice, clean guys would have totally crowded Gosnell out.
Well, we do deserve some blame. Just not the blame abortion advocates are trying to lay at our feet.
Where we dropped the ball is that we weren't watching this guy.
As both Abby Johnson and Lila Rose said at ProLifeCon, we need to be doing research. And part of that research is knowing who the local abortionists are and watching them like a hawk.
Kermit Gosnell's House of Horrors would not have flourished had prolifers been on top of him.
We've known since Lime 5 came out in 1996 that public officials and prochoice groups were willing to look the other way when abortionists were endangering women. We knew that this was a case of the fox guarding the henhouse.
Prochoicers can be excused for this. They really believe that the government and prochoice groups can be trusted. But we know better.
We need to stop being just an echo chamber. We need to be listening to Lila and Abby. We need to make sure every abortionist in America has somebody who's watching him, doing docket searches, checking medical board and health department records, visiting his facility, and just making it plain that even though prochoice leaders are willing to let the Kermit Gosnells of the world thrive at the expense of women and children, we're not.
