“Through the trial of Kermit Gosnell, the world has had the veil between political stance and real life implications drawn back. Those who have been content to view abortion as the “ending of a pregnancy” must somehow come to terms with this reality: what they are really supporting is the ending of a human life. You simply cannot logically be horrified by a man snipping the necks of innocent little babies out of the womb and simultaneously be ok with him doing the same thing inside the womb.
But this post isn’t necessarily about abortion or about Kermit Gosnell, it is about some questions I have been asking myself in the midst of his trial. As details emerged from the courtroom and the description of his “House of Horrors” became more and more complete, the utter depravity of this man was clear for all to see. He is the worst manifestation of evil, acting out the most terrible of sins upon the most helpless of victims.
The questions I have been asking myself are along these lines: If I were to come into contact with Kermit Gosnell, would I share the gospel with him? Would I think God unjust if he were to save him through the atoning work of Christ? Do I actually believe that Jesus’ shed blood is powerful enough to pay for Kermit Gosnell’s sins?”
