All Mass Murderers Aren't Created Equal

In the wake of the mass murder of seven babies by a Philadelphia abortionist I have to ask where’s the Presidential press conference? Where’s the nationally televised memorial? Where are the t-shirts with the catchy slogan? Where’s the media blame game? Where’s the feature pieces in national magazines on the societal implications of the murders?

Seriously. I’m wondering why isn’t the murder of seven babies of similar national implications to the horrible murders in Tuscon?

There are currently 15,000 mentions of Jared Loughner in the news recently, according to Google. But as of Sunday night there are less than 1,400 mentions of Dr. Kermit Gosnell. That’s 10 percent. Truly, silence is the deadliest bias.

Shortly after the Tuscon murders journalists, talking heads, and several politicians wasted no time chatting up the far flung societal implications of the tragedy in Arizona mainly focusing the blame for the murders on the “violent” rhetoric of the right wing. But isn’t it a heck of a lot shorter logical leap to suggest that strong pro-abortion rhetoric contributed to an atmosphere that made the violence perpetrated by Gosnell a possibility? Seriously, does 30 years of calling babies “blobs of tissue” have no effect on the culture?

  1. Matt, there were no guns or hateful right-wing rhetoric involved, so there's no story!

  2. You provided an answer a day or two ago when you discussed PZ Myers:

    "Dead babies are just meat."

  3. I read a story (maybe from the Washington Post) about a speech Obama gave this weekend on how interested he is in protecting Roe v. Wade because he wants our daughters to have all of the opportunities that they should have. yeah. He will not be addressing Gosnell (can we please stop calling him "Doctor"), as will few others. Too much truth for them.

  5. If there was to be money to be made, someone would have been there without a doubt. But does anyone really care? Yes, we'll provide the blah, blah, blah, but if we really cared, we would have done something for these babies, not just blow hot air.

  6. The President does not attend EVERY memorial concerning the mass murder of many people (e.g. mass murders of families during home invasions etc..). The reason why the U.S. president attended this particular memorial had alot to do with the assassination attempt on a member of congress during this particular act of mass murder. Why do you ask such a silly question when you know that this is not the only abortion clinic where babies are murdered. One could easily ask you: Why do you think there should be a memorial with the President at THAT clinic when abortions take place at a lots of clinics across the U.S. everyday?! Just think, we were just ONE justice away from overturning Roe v Wade when Pres. Bush (senior) appointed one of the most liberal and pro-abortion justices, Justice Souter! I hope just as much OUTRAGE is directed at our ineffective and greedy Republican friends (who only pay lip service to the dependable pro-life vote).
