BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith: Kermit Gosnell is your fault, wingnuts

Font Size:

Thanks to John Nolte for watching MSNBC so we don’t have to:

“The idea that women felt that they were forced to go to this horrendous clinic does say something about health care… There’s some suggestion that some of them felt that they couldn’t go to other clinics because there were protesters outside, or they couldn’t afford them…

“There’s certainly been a campaign on the right, to make it… to, in lieu of being able to actually ban abortion, just to make it incredibly difficult to get. And this is obviously the downside of that.”

See? It’s all your fault. Never mind that this guy operated in the open for 17 years. That’s in spite of the policies Ben Smith espouses, not because of them.

Clearly, the only way to prevent what Kermit Gosnell did is to set up a taxpayer-funded abortion clinic in every neighborhood in America. Oh, and we’ll need to provide taxpayer-funded transportation to and from the clinics, and taxpayer-funded security to protect the patients from any protesters. And probably some other taxpayer-funded stuff, TBA. Otherwise we’re denying these women access.

It sure beats expecting people to take responsibility for their own actions.

No? You don’t like that idea? Why do you hate women, you dumb rednecks?

Etc.

Update: Yep, this is going to be the narrative.
