Gosnell guilty. Babies everywhere can take a deep breath, knowing their brethren won’t get scissors in the spine. Three little preemies were born unwanted but born indisputably alive — but not for long. He made sure of that, putting scissors in their little necks.
So called doctor Gosnell, the man with the $1.8 million dollar a year business was found guilty of multiple murders and will never harm another little neck. Actually, some of those necks were not so little – one baby breathed for twenty minutes before being stabbed. Another baby, Gosnell joked, could “walk to the bus” — he was that good-sized.
Gosnell’s own neck now lies in peril, as he may face the death penalty. However, society should not turn the scissors on him. I don’t see this as political but as medical. As those who work to save lives of all types and whose careers begin with an oath to “do no harm,” I wonder if other doctors feel as I do? Enough already. Let the man live.
Do no harm.
