The Face of the Abortion Industry

CWAUpdate_GuiltyGosnellDark, morbid, gruesome, unloving and evil are some of the words that come to mind when I think of the abortion industry. Add to that delusional and creepy.

Kermit Gosnell, who was protected for years by an abortion lobby that refuses any and all attempts to regulate their dreadful industry, recently granted a jailhouse interview to Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, the producers of an upcoming documentary on his life. Most of you remember Gosnell was the abortionist convicted on multiple counts of first-degree murder after he was exposed for murdering babies after botched abortions and putting numerous women at risk, resulting in the death of at least one of them.

He is the face of abortion.

And abortion is horrendous. So it should be no surprise that in the interview his true colors came out. Although the footage of the interview is not available at the moment, MCAleer told Life News:

I have been a journalist for over 25 years covering the troubles in Northern Ireland, and Ann and I have done a number of interviews in prisons in Ireland and Eastern Europe. We have worked undercover exposing baby-selling in Vietnam and Indonesia, but I can honestly say that this interview was one of the creepiest interviews we have ever conducted.

He added that Gosnell “showed no remorse [and] believes he is a martyr.”

Gosnell was so creepy that he apparently was “completely inappropriate with Ann [McElhinney],” McAleer said to Life News “touching her and singing love songs.”

McElhinney confirmed the regrettable episode as she was interviewed by Danna Loesch of TheBlaze about her experience, saying “He [Gosnell] touched my leg. He was physically inappropriate — sat far, far too close in my personal space. Extremely disturbing.”

She concluded, “I haven’t met anyone who chilled my blood to that extent ever before. This man has no sense of guilt.”

Which surely explains why he excelled at his “profession.” And why he rightfully sits in jail today.


Same-Sex “Marriage” = Loss of Freedom

decider“Americans need to understand that the endgame of the LGBT rights movement involves centralized state power — and the end of First Amendment freedoms.” So writes Dawn Stefanowicz at Public Discourse in a powerful piece titled, “A Warning from Canada: Same-Sex Marriage Erodes Fundamental Rights.” I wanted to highlight the piece because it is written by one of the six adult children of “gay” parents who submitted a brief to the Supreme Court warning of the dangers of imposing same-sex “marriage” on children. Stefanowicz is also from Canada, which gives her a much better perspective on the issue, having lived under its legalization for ten years now.

The conclusion is what we have been warning about. “Freedoms of speech, press, religion, and association have suffered greatly due to government pressure” in Canada. And children are the ones who suffer most: “Children are not commodities that can be justifiably severed from their natural parentage and traded between unrelated adults. Children in same-sex households will often deny their grief and pretend they don’t miss a biological parent, feeling pressured to speak positively due to the politics surrounding LGBT households.”

scstIt was a partial win, but a win nonetheless. The U.S. Supreme Court has vacated and remanded a Fourth Circuit decision in favor of UPS, which is great news for Peggy Young. Let UPS explain to a jury why it cannot accommodate a pregnant woman to do some light work, instead of suspending her without pay because she cannot lift 70-lb. boxes.

I wrote to you about this case when we submitted an amicus brief back in September, but here are the basic facts again. Peggy Young was a UPS driver which required her to do some heavy lifting and which she couldn’t do on doctor’s orders once she became pregnant in 2006. She was then put on unpaid leave because she wouldn’t qualify for the company’s “light duty” accommodation. This left her not only without pay, but without health insurance.

The court below (4th Cir.) sided with UPS, saying that employers can deny accommodations to their pregnant employees so long as no employees with “off the job” injuries are also denied that accommodation.

We object to that conclusion based on the spirit of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA), which sought to end discrimination against pregnant women and reduce the obvious pressure on women to have an abortion in order not to lose their jobs and health benefits. But the Fourth Circuit believed the PDA only required the company to do as it did for other “similarly situated employees.”

With today’s decision, UPS will have to explain themselves in front of a jury, something I suspect they will try to avoid. They should settle with Ms. Young and provide reasonable accommodation for pregnant women, as they should have done all along.
