There are crimes so horrific
My heart cries out for justice, not mercy
There are people so evil
The fires of hell don’t seem hot enough
There are hearts are so hardened and calloused
Eternity in hell doesn’t seem long enough
If Abel’s blood cried out to God
How much more so the blood of innocent babies slaughtered in the womb
Lord, I plead for justice
Both here and now and for eternity

The LORD said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. – Genesis 4:10
After listening to Focus on the Family’s broadcast on 2/11/11, “The Value of Standing for Life”, I wanted to read the grand jury indictment for myself. Focus shared facts from the case in Pennsylvania in which an abortion doctor had been charged with murder. Babies from late term pregnancies were aborted, yet born alive, and they were then killed by severing their spinal cord.
Shows like “The Value of Standing for Life” are difficult to hear. Reading the grand jury transcript was graphic and horrific. My mind could not begin to grasp how one doctor and his associates could commit such evil acts at a Pennsylvania abortion clinic over a period of many years.
Our liberal society twists the taking of an innocent human life and calls it “a choice”.
That’s why I was amazed to read that this doctor had actually been charged with multiple counts of murder of aborted babies who were killed outside the womb.
I am so grateful for the grand jury and their dedication to wading through the facts of this case and having wherewithal to bring criminal charges against the doctor and his associates. I’m grateful that law enforcement and the legal system were able to shut down this abortion clinic.
I pray that police and the legal system will be able to shut down more clinics. I pray that this doctor and his staff will be judged by a jury of their peers and if found guilty be sentenced as severely as the law allows.
I know as a Christian I should be concerned for this man’s soul and pray for his salvation. After reading about the crimes he committed, the best I can do is committing him to the Lord’s will. God alone is holy, righteous and just. He alone can bring true justice both here and now and in eternity.
While I’m grateful for law enforcement and the court system in our nation, the true victory in abortion will only come by changing the hearts and mind of men and women through salvation in Christ Jesus.
Below are some of the charges against Dr. Kermit Gosnell who ran an abortion clinic in Philadelphia. In reality it should be called an abortion house of horrors. Even Hollywood would be hard pressed to come up with a story like what took place there.
If you are like me and the thought of reading such awful, gruesome facts is more than you can take…I ask you to please read it anyways. Please click on the link to read the transcript of the indictments against Dr. Kermit Gosnell and his staff members.
- We recommend that Kermit Gosnell be charged with murder for killing Baby Boy A.
- We recommend a murder charge against Kermit Gosnell in the death of “Baby Boy B,”
- We recommend murder and conspiracy charges against Kermit Gosnell and Lynda Williams for the murder committed by Lynda Williams in 2006 or 2007 of “Baby C.”
- There is sufficient evidence to charge Adrienne Moton and Kermit Gosnell with murder and conspiracy in the death of “Baby D.”
- We recommend that a murder charge be filed against Kermit Gosnell for the murder of “Baby E,”
- We recommend murder and conspiracy charges against Kermit Gosnell and Steven Massof for killing “Baby F.”
- The evidence supports charges of murder and conspiracy against Kermit Gosnell and Steven Massof for the killing of Baby G.
“The abortion ruling is a very clear one. The abortion ruling, of course, is also a natural result of this other world view because with this other world view, human life — your individual life — has no intrinsic value.” Francis Schaeffer
What can you do? How do you process all this or put it in perspective?
Prospers on lies and deception
But the truth is
It’s a baby, not just a fetus
A child, not tissue
A mother’s womb
So perfectly designed by God
To nourish and protect
Nascent human life
Has become a chamber of death
They say it’s just tissue and won’t feel a thing
But he is already fully formed, all organs in place
With arms and legs, hands and feet
And a beating human heart
Knit so perfectly together by God in the hidden place
This wee little one…does he feel anxiety
As adrenalin courses through his mother’s body
He’s resting, protected within his mother’s womb
Until a probe enters in
And pokes him in the side
He has no knowledge of what it is
He only knows it hurts
His arms and legs flail
He tries in vain to move away
But there will be no escape
In a matter of seconds
A beating heart is stilled
His body is mangled and torn apart
As it silently slips away through the hose
His life and death invisible to all but God
The mother who was to give birth
Sentenced her child to death
The one who pledged to protect human life
Now extinguishes life for profit
Parents who desire to have a babe in their arms must wait a little longer
An inconvenience, a consequence
Soon to be swept away by a “simple procedure”
But this child will never be forgotten
Reminders surround his mother…even haunt her
It’s everywhere…the smile of a child or a date on the calendar
But there is healing and forgiveness to be found
Salvation through Christ Jesus the Redeemer
Adoption by the Lover of her soul

This poem was inspired by Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood director, turned Pro Life when confronted with the undeniable truth…it’s a baby growing within a womb. To hear her story log on to Focus on the Family and listen to the shows from January 21 and 22, 2010.
Those who cry for tolerance and equal rights
Seek to silence the conservative voice
Those who fight for the right of a murderer to live
Seek to make abortion abundant and free
Those who proclaim to value all life from the fruit fly to the polar bear
Feel free to extinguish nascent human life through partial birth abortion
Those who teach the youth about global warming and how to use condom
Fail to educate our children how to read and write
Those who made nature their god
Buy indulgences to pardon their carbon sins

Some call it “a women’s right to choose”
But what about the baby’s “right to life”
Abortion in God’s eyes is the taking of an innocent human life
Some call it “tissue”
To ease the conscience of the women
Who chooses to abort the child growing within her womb
It’s called a fetus
Until such time the mother decides she wants it
Then it’s declared a baby…deemed worthy of life
Some call it necessary
A medical procedure
To save the life of the mother
Partial birth abortion
Such an antiseptic name
For a barbaric hideous act
Scissors piercing the brain
Extinguishing the life of a half delivered baby
Is MURDER…by any other name
