The Crimes of Kermit Gosnell -- Illegal Late-Term Abortions

From the Grand Jury Investigation:
Among the relatively few cases that could be specifically documented, one was Baby Boy A. His 17-year-old mother was almost 30 weeks pregnant – seven and a half months– when labor was induced. An employee estimated his birth weight as approaching six pounds. He was breathing and moving when Dr. Gosnell severed his spine and put the body in a plastic shoebox for disposal. The doctor joked that this baby was so big he could “walk me to the bus stop.”

Note that in Canada, a 30-week abortion would be legal.

We're supposed to seek the protection of babies born at 30 weeks and feel outrage if they are killed outside the womb.

But we're not supposed to seek the protection of babies still gestating at 30 weeks or condemn their killing at that stage.

Fetus Focus Fallacy and all that.

A woman's right to her body far outweighs any concern over the life of the fetus. If he dies, in the grand scheme of things, so what? Right feminists? Right.
