It's disturbing to see antis feign outrage over Gosnell, when that's the standard of abortion care they want for ALL women.

So-called feminist Amanda Marcotte wasn’t content with blaming pro-life activists for “forcing women” into Kermit Gosnell’s “undergound” abortion house of horrors. On Saturday, she decried the “feeding frenzy over Gosnell” and called it “a sobering reminder of how much hatred there is out there towards women.”
The Gosnell case is indeed a “sobering reminder” of hatred and disregard for women — it’s coming from the leftist abortion devotees desperately spinning the Gosnell case to protect the sacrament of abortion while callously failing to speak for victims. And it’s evident in the reported treatment of women who entered the unhygienic Philadelphia clinic where tiny feet were kept in jars like trophies.

But it’s a conservative War on Women?
Driven by her life-devaluing agenda, Marcotte’s instinct isn’t to advocate for newborns allegedly murdered in the filthy clinic. Her main concern today isn’t 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar, whose life was cut tragically short after she overdosed on anesthetics prescribed by Gosnell.
Her instinct is to defend the abortion industry. She dishonestly accuses “antis” of feigning outrage over the horrific acts for which Gosnell is standing trial. There is nothing feigned about the outrage or heartache brought on by the details of the Gosnell case. Not for anyone with a soul.
Investigators say one woman was sent home from the house of horrors with “fetal parts” still inside her and another had her cervix and colon torn by Gosnell. A former employee testified that a baby born alive after an abortion screamed. Karnamaya Mongar is dead. And according to the grand jury report, pro-abortion politics put an end to inspections of Pennsylvania abortion clinics.
[T]he Pennsylvania Department of Health abruptly decided, for political reasons, to stop inspecting abortion clinics at all. The politics in question were not anti-abortion, but pro. With the change of administration from Governor Casey to Governor Ridge, officials concluded that inspections would be ‘putting a barrier up to women’ seeking abortions.”
But the real monsters here? The people with enough human decency to want better for women and children.
Last word on Marcotte from a post Ace wrote on Friday: “She’s plainly a lunatic.”
