Those who come to the trials expecting to find sadistic monsters are generally disappointed. What is shocking about Nuremberg is the ordinariness of the defendants: men who may be good fathers, kind to animals, even unassuming--yet who committed unspeakable crimes. Years later, reporting on the trial of Adolf Eichmann, Hannah Arendt wrote of "the banality of evil." Like Eichmann, most Nuremberg defendants never aspired to be villains. Rather, they over-identified with an ideological cause and suffered from a lack of imagination or empathy: they couldn't fully appreciate the human consequences of their career-motivated decisions.Another characteristic of the Nazis was that the longer they engaged in the heinous behaviors, the less it affected them. The demeanor of this clinic employee says it all. She boasts that she's seen a lot over the eleven years that she has worked there. When you watch how calmly this clinic worker tells her would-be patient to flush her baby down the toilet if she gives birth after being given a treatment but before she can return the clinic, you will know exactly what is meant by the term, 'banality of evil'.
As for Gosnell's clinic being an 'outlier'... Do you honestly think that people who endorse / commit this kind of evil wouldn't lie about it?

In this clinic, the male worker essentially admits that if a baby survives a botched abortion in his clinic, they 'will not help it'. This is a violation of federal law, which he seems quite banal about breaking:
Of course, add to these 'outliers' in Philadelphia, New York, and Washington, D.C. this exchange between the Florida state legislature and a Planned Parenthood lobbyist, who clearly has an agenda that includes not helping babies born alive after surviving an abortion.
Why would the largest abortion provider - Planned Parenthood - take such a position in an entire state? Just how many 'outliers' are there in Florida?
Or is that a banal question?
Oh, and then there's this so perhaps we can add Delaware to the 'outlier' list, not to mention all of the other despicable revelations about what Planned Parenthood does.
