Gosnell Found Guilty!
After ten days of jury deliberations, the bloody butcher of Philadelphia has been convicted of first degree murder in the deaths of three of the dozens of abortion-surviving infants whom he was accused of slaughtering by “snipping” their spinal cords after birth. He was sentenced to three consecutive life terms in a Pennsylvania prison, which means that, at age 72, he likely will die in prison. Gosnell avoided the death penalty by agreeing to waive his right of appeal.
Gosnell also was found guilty of a lesser charge — involuntary manslaughter — for the death in 2009 of a 41-year-old woman who died from a drug overdose while her child was being aborted at the Gosnell clinic. He was given a sentence of 2 1/2 – 5 years in prison for that crime.
And what does Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, say about the Gosnell verdict? “We must reject misguided laws that would limit women’s options and force them to seek treatment from criminals like Kermit Gosnell,” pontificated Eric Ferrero, a spokesman for Planned Parenthood of America (as reported in the Washington Post.)
Abortion advocate group NARAL also weighed in with this: “From the lack of funding available for low-income women to access abortion services, to the sharp decline of reputable providers in Pennsylvania, to the gross negligence of authorities to enforce the law after complaints were filed against Gosnell, each aspect of this case must be a teachable moment for lawmakers: until we reject the politicization of women’s medical care and leave these decisions where they belong – between a woman and her family and her doctor — women will never be safe.”
In other words, these “pro-choice” groups say that pro-life bills regulating abortion mills somehow are driving women to these “houses of horrors” where often they either die or contract a serious infection. They also feel that it’s our fault as pro-lifers for helping to reduce tax dollars which pay for abortions. Expect to hear more of this twisted “logic” as state legislatures consider health and medical standards regulations for abortuaries.
Another Abortionist’s Staff Reveals More Gory Details
Although the Gosnell verdict is certainly welcomed by the pro-life community, we need to be aware that without doubt, this is not the only filthy, medically sub-standard abortuary in our country. As we reported last week, other states are also finding deplorable conditions in abortuaries.
A disturbing interview by Texas-based Life Dynamics also documents that there are several other abortionists performing late-term abortions, which are referred to as “big” procedures by the abortionists using the “snipping” procedure to kill the born-alive babies. Indeed, other grotesque procedures including stabbing through the baby’s soft spot and even twisting babies’ heads off were detailed. WARNING: The procedures described are very graphic and this interview is not suited for all viewers.
In fact, a Texas abortionist may prove to be the next “Gosnell.” Pro-life Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, who was key in getting the Lone Star state’s sonogram bill passed last session, issued this statement Wednesday: “In a week when serial murderer Kermit Gosnell was found guilty of killing babies, I read with disgust about the allegations of Houston-based abortionist Douglas Karpen performing illegal late-term abortions surrounded by appalling sanitary conditions in his clinic. The Harris County authorities should perform a full-scale investigation and take action against those who broke state law.” Read Full Story Here.
A bill requiring abortuaries to meet the same medical standards as ambulatory surgical centers is now awaiting a vote in the Texas Senate. It’s being held up by Democrats who don’t want more “restrictions” on access to abortions, even if that means that the unsanitary and filthy conditions will continue to be a danger to women and that a “big” abortionist will continue to kill babies who survive the abortion process.
Pro-life Members of Congress Helped Expose Gosnell
Eighteen Republican Members of Congress recently went to the House Floor to speak out about abortionist Kermit Gosnell. These speeches were organized by Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) and were delivered during designated times when Members are given one minute to speak on the subject of their choice. A video playlist can be viewed here and each speech is linked below. We appreciate these pro-life Congressional Representatives helping to raise public awareness about the butcher Kermit Gosnell.
Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN); Rep. Diane Black (R-TN); Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL); Rep. Bill Johnson (R-OH); Rep. Dennis Ross (R-FL); Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ); Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS); Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE); Rep. Keith Rothfus (R-PA); Rep. Todd Rokita (R-IN); Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN); Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI); Rep. James Lankford (R-OK); Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA); Rep.

INHUMAN Video: Infamous Late-Term Abortionist LeRoy Carhart
This week’s “Inhuman” video from the Live Action undercover video team exposes late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart here. Live Action President Lila Rose stated, “Dr. Carhart’s testimony is shocking and sickening. He compares a baby in the womb to ‘meat’ in a ‘slow cooker.’ He jokes about his abortion tool kit, complete with ‘pickaxe’ and ‘drill bit.’ Finally, he outright lies when he claims that his patient, Jennifer Morbelli, died of complications in her pregnancy rather than from his abortion. Our investigation reveals that the horrors of the abortion industry leaves devastated two victims: the mother and the child. Our videos expose the truly gruesome, illegal, and inhuman practices going on inside many of America’s abortion centers. Unfortunately, this is just another day at the office for abortionists and their staff.” Ms. Rose has called for an investigation by the Attorney General and the U.S. Attorney’s office, saying she expects those who admit they violate federal law to be prosecuted, as well as an investigation by local health and law enforcement officials.
