Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer – Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer (Regnery Publishing)
Abortion is one of those subjects that no matter where you stand, you will NEVER change someone’s point of view. That being said, after reading Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer’s new book, Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer; I don’t care where you stand on the issue, if you don’t comprehend the disgusting, evil actions taken by the psychopath, because you feel the need to always defend abortion at all costs, then you are as sick, vile and disgusting as convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell.
McElhinney and McAleer take on the challenge to convey the details of the filthy conditions at Gosnell’s Lancaster Avenue clinic and the deplorable and clearly illegal conditions of the equipment and treatment rooms that he subjected his patients to in his pursuit of butchering, maiming and murdering these women.
Plenty of Blood to Go Around
There is plenty of blood and blame to go around when it comes to the sickening case of Gosnell and his multitude of victims. There is an almost blind allegiance to abortion that is laced throughout this sickening story. Pro-abortion types provided a protection racket that allowed Gosnell to continue to butcher women and babies for decades after he should have been put to a stop.
As someone who earns a living in healthcare, I have seen firsthand the regulatory nightmare that facilities are subjected to on a regular basis to ensure patient safety is front and center. I am ASTOUNDED at the negligence and outright criminality that McElhinney and McAleer detail in the book where those charged with oversight of these clinics allowed to continue not by error, but clearly by choice! While a minor handful of folks lost their jobs or were forced into early retirement, for the most part they escaped with no consequences.
Pro-abortion types have successfully and speciously labeled abortion as “women’s healthcare” but their silence, their unwillingness to step up and put a stop to Gosnell amounts to the exact opposite of healthcare. From then Governor Tom Ridge, to countless Pennsylvania Department of Health regulators, fellow physicians, and healthcare providers ignored unmistakable violations and malpractice committed by Gosnell and his staff, but chose to look the other way for the sake of the sacrament of abortion.
The book details documented cases where Gosnell’s victims died from sepsis; a horrific, painful way to die highlighted by symptoms that include; high temperature and heart rate, abdominal pain, gasping for breath, organ failure, altered metal state and finally death unless it is treated quickly. Many of Gosnell’s victims were uneducated and poor and wouldn’t seek the quick healthcare needed to prevent this painful death.
Ignored by the Media
Gosnell’s horrific story was largely ignored by the mainstream media because they are complicit in running interference for the pro-abortion crowd; not wanting to tarnish the stellar image they have created out of whole cloth for the likes of the ghouls at Planned Parenthood.
My greatest fear is that Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer, will not get the attention it deserves; even those on the pro-abortion side of this argument should be outraged and demand the all states exert suitable oversight on all abortions providers and that they be held to the letter of the law so we can never again be confronted by the gruesome, horrific details of a butcher the likes of Kermit Gosnell.
