As LifeNews reported yesterday, late-term abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell defending his actions killing unborn children in abortions after viability and taking their lives moments after their purposeful delivery in gruesome infanticides.
But Gosnell did more than just defend himself from his jail cell. He also wrote a poem that explains his macabre actions in a way that defends his killings by saying he is saving the babies his is destroying from a supposed life of crime and poverty.
From a report on the poem:
Are Labeled Killers!
Not Physicians, Oathed To Heal
Lest We Forget,
What Chance Have Those?
Those Without The Support
Of Their Parents
Their Societies …
Without Sufficient Support
Stumble Into Drugs
Into Mental Illness
Into Institutions … And …
Languish in Jails …
As Katie McCann wrote at LifeNews, abortion doesn’t eliminate poverty.
By cutting life short in the womb, abortion denies upward mobility to all human life, regardless of income level. However, the pro-choice movement has been sustained by an elitism and classism that repeatedly and disproportionately victimizes some of the poorest women in America.
Frequently, the pro-choice side argues that it’s better to abort a baby than for that baby to be raised in poverty. Of course, this argument denies agency to both the woman and her child and, horrifically (as well as lazily), proposes the extermination of people rather than the problem itself.
The argument that unplanned children should be aborted on the basis that they are a social burden was popularized as the eugenics movement grew during the last half of the 19th century. Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, joined the eugenics debate, aiming to lessen the “social threats” that an exploding black underclass posed to the economy and the American taxpayer by means of the Negro Project, a birth control movement targeted at black communities.

These women also have one of the country’s highest abortion rates: 52 abortions per 1,000 women. On the other hand, higher-income women with family incomes at or above 200% of the poverty line have a rate of nine abortions per 1,000 women, which is about half the national rate.
Undoubtedly, some of America’s most vulnerable women and children—the poor—are disproportionately victimized by Big Abortion, a billion-dollar abortion industry lead by Planned Parenthood, the elitist, political giant that makes more than half of its income off of abortions and spreads the myth that it is the only source of health care for poor women.
