Disturbed by lack of reporters at doctor’s trial
To the editor:
On April 12, 2013 you published our comments under the heading of “Sentinel late-term abortion editorial draws congrats”
We wrote,” We want to congratulate you on your editorial of April 9, ‘Crossing the line to infanticide.’ You expose the abomination that abortion is. Unfortunately, we cannot congratulate the vast majority of media.”
To further comment, an abortion murder trial is now taking place. Following is a reporter’s column which supports my April 12 letter.
To reinforce our statement we have a current scenario of a medical doctor who is being tried for murder in Philadelphia.
The USA Today reported: “J.D. Mullane, a Philadelphia reporter attended the Gosnell trial.”
J.D. Mullane, a columnist for Pennsylvania’s Bucks County Courier Times wrote in a story posted Sunday on PhillyBurbs.com that the court staff had set aside three rows of seats to accommodate up to 40 reporters Thursday, when some key witnesses were scheduled to testify. Only one reporter – Mullane – sat in the reserved seating. Mullane said a New York Times reporter showed up later that afternoon and stayed for a few minutes.
Mr. Mullane’s partial report follows: “What I saw at the Gosnell trial” by J.D. Mullane
“It is hard to decide the most appalling images to emerge Thursday at the murder trial of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell. What happened in his abortion clinic is beyond any morbid Hollywood horror.
“Tiny severed feet and hands stored in jars over a sink in the ‘procedure’ room.”
Maybe the news services cannot handle the murderous gore described by Mr. Mullane? He writes, “It is hard to decide the most appalling images to emerge Thursday at the murder trial of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell. What happened in his abortion clinic is beyond any morbid Hollywood horror.”
Let us hope it was not due to political correctness or maybe yet to not report it because those in Washington are for Planned Parenthood and abortion and they should not be disturbed.
At least the media could have had a “News Service” reporter cover for those who use such services.
