How to Not Be Okay With Silence

Does the name Kermit Gosnell ring any bells for you?

I’m going to take a wild guess that it doesn’t. 

The mainstream media has ignored Kermit Gosnell. That’s why you don’t know his name. 

But you should.

You should know that Kermit Gosnell is on trial right now in Philadelphia for his practice of late-term abortions. The defining phrase “late-term” is used rather loosely. He delivers babies, and then “aborts” them—the newborn babies, that is—outside the womb. I could go on, but I might throw up. 

But why haven’t you heard about this? Is it just too grisly—a word used frequently by the few journalists who are reporting on this—to show the American people? That doesn’t seem to stop anything else from being shown. We saw the real-life nightmare in Boston, and the terrifying explosions in western Texas all in one week. 

Now I don’t have decades of journalism experience, but I can spot poor journalism when I see it. The purpose of journalism is to communicate truth, be it glee or gloom. And the politically-pulled mainstream media has completely, blatantly ignored Kermit Gosnell. Where is the truth in that? This is something you should know about. 

This issue has become more about politics than about babies, which is shameful and tragic, if you ask me. And I don’t plan on using this blog as a political platform, but sometimes there are things that need to be talked about.  This is one of them. 

So, political views aside, allow me to ask this question: Is it okay to ignore this story? Is it okay to ignore the truth of abortion practices just because the details make us squirm? Is it okay to turn a blind eye to the violence that is happening around us just to maintain a level of comfort? Is it okay?

You may have heard the adage, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.” What are you standing for today? Are you standing for truth? Or are you falling for comfort? 

The Washington Times  is among the media agencies that is reporting with integrity, along with Fox News and the New York Times. To learn more about this story and read related ones, go here and continue to be well-informed.
