As reported in the Associated Press today, Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist in Pennsylvania, was charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of one “patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors.”
The clinic has been described as a “house of horrors,” according to aolnews.com. Besides stabbing seven newborn babies to death, Dr. Kermit Gosnell is also charged with murder in the death of a woman who suffered an overdose of painkillers while awaiting an abortion.
“There were bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building,” Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams is quoted as saying. “There were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.”
In response, David N. O’Steen, Ph.D., National Right to Life executive director, made the following statement:
“This tragic report once again reminds us that the purpose of each abortion — no matter how it is performed — is to deliberately and brutally take at least one innocent human life. The victims are helpless little members of the human family, and this is equally true whether the killing is completed inside or outside of the womb. And tragically, in this case, it is reported that a mother also lost her life. If the reports prove true, these individuals should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life organizations and more than 3,000 local chapters nationwide, is the nation’s largest pro-life group. National Right to Life works through legislation and education to protect those threatened by abortion, infanticide, euthanasia and assisted suicide.
