BREAKING: KERMIT GOSNELL FOUND GUILTY
THREE COUNTS OF FIRST-DEGREE MURDER, HUNDREDS OF OTHER COUNTS
Statement from Live Action President Lila Rose on the verdict in the Kermit Gosnell trial:
Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s gruesome and inhuman crimes in Philadelphia cried out for justice, and now – for three of his born and struggling victims, at least – justice has been served. Even as we celebrate this verdict, we honor and mourn as well those among our nation’s weakest children who did not receive ‘their day in court’ – and we must remember that Gosnell is not an outlier within the abortion industry. We cannot allow these ‘guilty’ verdicts, welcome as they are, to make us complacent when it comes to the continuing abuses happening even now in abortion facilities throughout our nation. We call upon Congress to investigate all those participating in or willing to participate in this kind of brutality toward vulnerable women and children, and end it.
