Selective Outrage

For whatever reason, I am listening to Nancy Grace on CNN Headline News right now. She is foaming at the mouth, so to speak, over the allegations of Michael Vick running a dog fighting network from his home. Today, one of the quarterback's friends business partners, Tony Taylor, rolled over on Vick and will offer evidence of Vick's complicity. The media sharks smell blood in the water.

While the cries of outrage were echoing from the TV, something occurred to me. These "good"people were incensed over the brutal treatment of dogs. These media stars are asking questions like - how could a football hero be so evil; -how can these men bring their children to these dogfights? And on and on and on. Video clips of dogs fighting each other played on the screen while Michael Vick was castigated.

These people got all worked up over dogs ripping into each other. And don't get me wrong. I like dogs too and I think that it is a barbaric practice.

But not a word was spoken to the barbarism, the unholy violence visited upon millions of children who are slaughtered unborn while still in the womb. No mention of partial birth abortions where the skulls of babies are cracked open and their brains vacuumed out.

One of the animal commentators on CNN stated that one dog was kept that had its muzzle ripped off while fighting. The dog was kept alive so that others could see the "fight" in it. The owner wanted to breed it because the dog demonstrated that it would not quit despite fierce pain. But what of the pain of humans? What of the hellish, bloody destruction of babies? Partial birth abortions are performed from 20 weeks almost until birth.

The following images are disturbing, but they are far more descriptive than the medical terminology that robs the procedure of its horror.

Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps.

The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal. The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head.

The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole...

The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.

In thirty-three years of LE experience (seven of them as a crime scene technician) I have seen some very nasty things. But this makes me sick. I don't dare show actual photos of this barbarism.
