Great headline.  As for the conviction, good.

The headlines I've seen so far (before today, even) were more or less "abortion doctor being tried for murder!" but then I read some details about this guy and his truck-stop-restroom-grade operation and uhhhhhghghhghghhghhghghhghhghghghhgg.

From my understanding, the entire abortion thing in PA is what led to this... the former democratic governer of PA thought the costs of regulating abortions was too high and would put abortion clinics out of business so they basically ignored them... when you do that, this is what you get.

I'm pretty pro-choice, but that guy was just some back-alley quack. Seems like he deserves some punishment.
 
2013-05-13 04:32:28 PM
Just a friendly reminder that what this man did was illegal, and this conviction is evidence of that.

This trial isn't about abortion, it's about the murder of infants. Two different things.
 
2013-05-13 04:32:31 PM
I actually have very little clue about this.

Is it the abortion doc or the psycho-ex girlfriend?

Yeah, this guy is the perfect case for the pro-life movement to hang their hat on.  Something along the lines of "See what this guy does?!?!  This is approximately what all abortion doctors do!!!"

I'll just go with what this guy did is farking sick and he should rot in jail for the rest of his life for it.  Also, abortion should remain legal.

The Muthaship: The_Sponge: You're trolling, bro.

Maybe, but this is Fark.  We should at least consider the possibility he/she is a sociopath.


There was a philosophy professor not so long ago who raised a big stink by writing a paper essentially arguing that since infants lack any real self-awareness, that abortion right should be extended to allow parents until a year or so after birth to decide whether the baby should be terminated or not.  It wasn't satire.  He sincerely believed that.
 
2013-05-13 04:35:19 PM
So I guess I'm not really missing out spending less time looking at 'big media' news.

Been a slew of stuff the last few weeks that were touted as 'the thing everyone in America has been watching!", etc... that I had no idea existed.  Can't say after reading this article that I'm missing much.

I did however get grocery shopping, house cleaning, and fun time in.

So, is it legal or illegal to flush my baby and if so, until what age?

(Am not aware if he was found guilty for that one.)

Yes, just look at the hundreds of posts in this thread by liberals claiming this guy was framed, how the conviction should be overturned, and how abortions are okay even when performed by a guy without a license to practice medicine in an unmarked van in a back alley.

The majority of the charges against him were for performing abortions past the legally mandated cutoff date.  The 4 most dramatic charges were 1st degree murder.

Wrong.

Pro-Choice people hate him even more.

This ass got really rich butchering women. He performed late-term abortions... correction. He caused extremely premature labor and deliveries, and left the dying fetus to linger - which is horrific. This is the kind of monster that provided abortions pre-Roe - and the Left hates him just as much.
 
2013-05-13 04:41:21 PM
Notice that none of the MSM even discussed the verdict until after Fox and the other neutral media pointed out the lack of coverage.  Too little, too late.  All this does is show that the MSM finally caved, and that shining the bright light of liberty on their obvious bias is a necessary, effective, and patriotic duty of real Americans.

Raharu: Well according to the bible you don't even have a soul until you take your first breath, so according to the bible it's just property damage.


What verse is that?  I know there is at least one contradictory one.

/But, that's the Bible for ya.
 
2013-05-13 04:42:04 PM
That's so cute. Now that the verdict is finally in and they have no choice but to cover it all of a sudden you were being silly if you thought the media were ignoring this story.

They were trying very hard to.
 
2013-05-13 04:42:40 PM
Why do they keep calling him an abortion doctor? I thought he wasn't a doctor, or at least a licensed abortion doctor. Gives the legit guys a bad name.

Okay, so my statement wasn't entirely true, but the caveat is still that he was doing things that were illegal.  This isn't a mandate or a statement on legal abortion, nor is it an appropriate judgment against actual accredited clinics that perform them.

I had about this story weeks ago on *gasp* NPR before I saw any mention of it in other sources including Fox.

2013-05-13 04:43:24 PM
Wow, most of the nets finally took a whole 15 minutes to talk about a murder trial directly relating to one of the most divisive and passionate topics of the past 50 years. It's not like the story broke years ago and went under-reported until recently.

I was expecting a lame-ass headline like this when the verdict was reported. Thanks for the predictability, mods.

Why would liberals consider this blatant criminal a martyr?

Oh right ... you're a troll.
