If Children Belong to the Community, I’m Part of the Community. Leave My Kids Alone.

“I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien,” West testified, telling a judge and Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas jury that the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.- Twitchy

Here’s a question that’s been bugging me for a couple of days and it relates to Melissa Harris-Perry’s comments about how all children belong to the “community”.

Well this child was alive, it was screaming in fact. Doesn’t that mean that child belonged to the community? That child was as much my child as it was the child of the “mother” who chose to abort.

Why is it that this concept of “community” children only kicks in after they are born? Why is it that the Kermit Gosnell case can’t get media coverage, but a Rutgers basketball coach being fired can get nearly 3 quarters of an hour of coverage on different network news outlets?

Are they too stingy to use their time and money for those children? What’s the difference between that living child being stabbed to death in an abortion clinic  and the teenage girl who was shot in Chicago recently? The one Michelle Obama got so teary eyed over recently.

What’s the difference between the children that Gosnell murdered during late term abortions and the children who died at Sandy Hook?

At what point does “My Body, My Choice” get voided by “the community” that is, presumably, interested in protecting the lives of children?

When are the 100+ children, that witnesses have testified to being “aborted” outside the womb by Gosnell, going to get their 15 minutes of time on the air?

Why is our culture more outraged by a basketball coach yelling at his students than they are by a man cutting the spinal cords of babies with a pair of scissors?

If these children are part of the “community” then it hardly matters that I’m not their mother by blood, I’m their mother by “social contract” and the worst place to be is between a mother and her children.

Before any liberal pro-choicers start to get on my case, remember that this is not about abortion. Gosnell’s crime was, at best, late term abortions, at worst, post birth murder of infants.

  1. These are all great questions I think! And they’re all questions that deserve serious answers–not rushed answers, not appeasing and politically correct answers. They deserve well thought out answers. And if nothing else I think this is the kind of thing everyone on all sides of political spectrum should think about. Great post yet again:)
