New Yorkers for Life Reacts to Gosnell Verdict

Earlier this week, a Pennsylvania jury found Philadelphia-abortionist Kermit Gosnell guilty on three out of four first-degree murder charges in the deaths of children born alive in his facility. Gosnell has also been found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of a woman who lost her life after being excessively medicated. Gosnell faces either life in prison or the death penalty for his crimes. Kirsten Smith, spokeswoman for New Yorkers for Life, made the following comments:

“Women and men across America can take some small comfort in the knowledge that Kermit Gosnell will be punished for his callous, negligent treatment of female patients and for committing infanticide against infants born alive following late-term abortions. The sad truth, however, is that the mistreatment of women and infants by late-term abortionists is not confined to Gosnell’s horrific abortion mill. Recent reports make it abundantly clear that late-term abortionists display callous disregard for the lives and well-being of female patients as well as infants born alive following late-term abortions. New Yorkers should not rest easy until Governor Andrew Cuomo’s late-term abortion expansion proposal – which would, in essence, roll out the red carpet for late-term abortionists like Gosnell – has been defeated.”
