Kermit Gosnell: A Grotesque Superman

Kermit Gosnell: A Grotesque Superman

On his own self-understanding, then, Kermit Gosnell transgressed a socially-constructed moral boundary in executing born-alive infants—but it was a transgression justified by his personal duty to bring about a better society with a better morality. He may have been a butcher, but he quite consciously (even if just in retrospect) placed his butchery within a sophisticated intellectual tradition. And it is this pop-Nietzscheism that undergirds, implicitly or explicitly, all practitioners of abortion.
