If you remember your Shakespeare, you’ll recall that Mark Antony does a masterful job of turning his audience against Caesar’s killers even as he praises them as “honorable men.” In a similar vein, an author at Live Action comes not to bury Kermit Gosnell but to praise him as the best abortionist ever:
Today, I want to tell you about a hero. A crusader. A revolutionary. His name is Kermit Gosnell.
It’s a difficult time to be a woman. Women are marginalized andabused all over the globe. Here in America, things are no better. Lasttime I checked, birth control pills were almost not free. What kind of acountry is this?
Thank goodness we have Dr. Kermit Gosnell.
When a “viable fetus” – I guess the right-wingers would call that acomes out, Dr. Kermit has the strength and, you know what, the love for women everywhere to finish killing it with scissors.
It goes on like this for a while and concludes ” If we let Dr. Kermit go down for his brave, selfless, brave, wonderful,brave work on behalf of women, I hate to say this, but the terroristshave won.”
So far there hasn’t been much support expressed for Gosnell. I wonder if that will change if he’s convicted and faces the death penalty.
