Yet in comparison to [contraceptives activist Sandra] Fluke’s well-publicized victimhood [at the hands of Rush Limbaugh], there has been a veritable news blackout for the trial of the macabre Dr. Kermit Gosnell, charged with killing and mutilating in gruesome fashion seven babies during a long career of conducting sometimes illegal late-term abortions. Had Gosnell’s aborted victims been canines instead of humans—compare the minimal coverage of the Gosnell trial with the widespread media condemnation of dog-killing quarterback Michael Vick—perhaps the doctor’s mayhem likewise would have been front-page news outside of Philadelphia.
