So why isn't this in the news?
Why isn't it on the front page of the major news agencies?
Too lurid for the timid American heart?
Too ghastly for those of tender spirit?
Too "real" for those who don't want to see reality?
No, the reason this isn't on front-page America is because people go along with what was happening here. They think "the ends justify the means"...whatever "ends" and "means" happen to mean to them.
If this were happening in some veterinary's surgical room, there would be screaming to high heaven (if anyone believes in heaven anymore). If some veterinary had made him/herself a millionaire by doing this to so many cats/dogs/horses/cows the vet would be in prison faster than you can blink an eye. And there would have been oh-too-late offers to "adopt" all those kittens/puppies/foals/calves and offer homes where they could live happily ever after.
But the Philadelphia story? Nah! We're speaking only of humans here. Of what importance are thousands (true figure unknown but surely much more than tens of thousands) of babies who were never allowed to enjoy what Thomas Jefferson called their "unalienable Rights".
If you haven't read about this yourself, click on the link in my first line and read what Melinda Henneberger has to say in today's Washington Post. If you are not appalled, you might consider asking God why this does not cause your heart pain and sorrow. We should all be sorrowing for these lives lost in such horrific, premeditated, evil manner.
And if you think this is "much to-do about nothing", read the Grand Jury report here. Go ahead! Read it, and see if I exaggerate.
Whatever you do, don't bury your head in the sand.
God help us.
