Missouri Right to Life Press Release
For Immediate Release

Abortionist Kermit Gosnell Found
Guilty of First Degree Murder
Statement from Pam Fichter, President of Missouri Right to Life:
"Kermit Gosnell has been found guilty of manslaughter in the death of a desperate mother seeking an abortion and of brutally murdering three newborn babies by snipping their spines when they were born alive following attempted abortions. The Philadelphia jury acknowledged in their verdicts that human life deserves our protection. However, we must remember that had Kermit Gosnell killed these same children while they were still in the womb, there would have been no charges. What the Gosnell verdict shows is the contradiction in common sense that is legalized abortion. Thank God this abortionist has been stopped. But whether a child is killed in a filthy Philadelphia abortion clinic or a new Planned Parenthood abortion clinic makes no difference to the child. And it makes no difference to the child if she is inside or outside of her mother's womb."
