Kermit Gosnell's House of Horrors

The trial of Kermit Gosnell continues. All the arguments for the prosecution have been heard; oddly enough, the defense called no witnesses and did not call Gosnell to the witness stand. So he is relying solely on his closing argument to sway the jury's decision.

His case is that this is blatant racism; that Gosnell is being tried because he simply did what Roe v Wade permitted, that abortion when it is done for poor minority women will look ugly - what else do you expect?

Fox News presented a one-hour documentary last night called See No Evil - you can view a 10 minute trailer of the show here.

Gosnell Case: The women and their harrowing stories

One statement I have heard from pro-choice supporters is that Gosnell shows exactly what happens when women don't have access to safe hygienic conditions. They argue that it is pro-life restrictions that bring about filthy clinics like Kermit Gosnell's House of Horrors. 

How disingenuous!  This case shows that Roe v Wade simply legalized back alley abortions. Abortion is a dirty and horrific act; exposing Gosnell's clinic shows the public exactly what abortion is: the killing of babies, often done by people profiting off the misery of women.

The fight over abortion will not go away, even as pro-choice supporters say that the law has been decided and that we will not go back to the way things were. When life is treated so casually, as shown by Gosnell's case, one can't help but rise up in anger over the injustice being committed.
