Justice prevails in Gosnell verdict, but what about babies killed in womb? Print
Letters to the editor
Thursday, May. 23, 2013 -- 12:00 AM

To the editor:

Kermit Gosnell is guilty, and justice has been done. According to one courtroom observer, Gosnell seemed surprised that he was found guilty, and it is that aspect of his cold attitude that describes the monster he is.

If sane and moral people had tried to conjure up the most monstrous abortionist alive, they would have been hard put to come up with the atrocities committed by Gosnell. Our fear that he would be acquitted is unrealized, and America is once again a nation with a conscience which recognizes a grave injustice.

The jury found Gosnell guilty of first degree murder on three counts for killing babies who survived his abortion attempts and third degree murder in the death of the woman who died at his hands.

The question is now raised as to why it is perfectly legal to brutally kill babies in the womb, but not outside of the womb.   In the abortion context, location is everything, whether it makes sense or not.

We look forward to the day when the abortion nightmare is over, and all babies in the womb are recognized in life and in law.
