Americans Are Appalled By Horrific Deeds, But Not Bothered Enough to Change Policy

Even before rogue abortionist Kermit Gosnell was convicted in Philadelphia on May 13 of delivering and then killing late-term infants, abortion opponents were convinced they had a case that could reshape an abortion debate that has remained static over the years.

After the verdict, they were even more confident.

“Dr. Gosnell is only the front man; and the real trial has only just begun. The defendant is the abortion license in America,” Robert P. George, a Princeton law professor and leading conservative activist, wrote after a jury convicted Gosnell of three counts of first-degree murder for snipping the spines of babies after botched abortions.

David Gibson may think that there are several reasons why Gosnell’s sick and twisted murderous behavior won’t be a change-influence but it all really boils down to just one:

Americans may act appalled by horrific deeds, but they’re not bothered enough to change policy.  They aren’t bothered by abortion on demand.  They aren’t bothered by drunk drivers constantly murdering innocent victims.  They aren’t bothered by the negative effects of climate change.  And they aren’t bothered by much of anything (as long as they have sports, money, drugs and food, nothing else really matters).  Appalled?  Oh sure, for about 5 seconds.  Bothered?  Not even for 1 second.
