Nor have we heard much about Kermit Gosnell’s house of horrors, even as the abortionist stood trial for murder in recent weeks. A near blackout of coverage in “mainstream” media — amid a storm of horrified attention on social media — has shown those news outlets to be out of sync with the views of mainstream America.

No question this is a difficult topic. How much more troubling for the conscience of our nation, however, if we failed to discuss it.
