A jury found Kermit Gosnell guilty of first degree murder of 3 babies who survived being aborted, and is serving 3 life sentences without the possibility of parole. I did not hear any attempts to even justify Gosnell. Those who are pro late-term abortions kept quiet. Other than Fox News reporting, the Gosnell trial did not get much national media attention. Well, despite the lack of media attentions, what happened with Gosnell really hit a nerve and there will be more investigations of late-term abortion clinics.
One very disturbing aspect is that former Republican pro-choice PA Governor, Tom Ridge (also first head of Homeland Security) enabled the activities in Gosnell’s house of horrors. When Tom Ridge was PA’s Governor, he stopped state inspections of abortion clinics. He is in hiding. Efforts by such folks as Bill O’Reilly and local radio talker, Dominic Giordano to get him to respond to the guilty verdict are futile so far. Go here to read a Red State post calling Tom Ridge an unindicted co-conspirator.
Pres. Obama kept mum on Kermit Gosnell, even though he voted as a state senator in Illinois against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act in Illinois that would protect the life of baby who survived a late-term abortion. Really, Gosnell, Tom Ridge and the Pres. appear to be on the same level when it comes to late-term abortions.
