American Family Association Applauds Verdict as a Victory for Women and Unborn Children
Making perhaps the biggest headlines in
abortion news since Roe v. Wade in 1973, abortion doctor
Kermit Gosnell was found guilty today of three counts of first degree murder.
The long-awaited verdict took social media by storm and perhaps will change
America’s perception of abortion clinics and their accountability.
A jury of seven women and five men found
Gosnell guilty after days of deliberations ended today. Gosnell was originally
charged with four counts of first-degree murder for allegedly killing four
babies born alive in his West Philadelphia abortion clinic. He also faced
charges for one count of third-degree murder in the death of 41-year-old
Karnamaya Mongar, who died in 2009 at the Women’s Medical Society abortion
clinic after Gosnell’s untrained and unlicensed staff administered a lethal
dose of Demerol, an opioid pain reliever, then failed to provide emergency care
when she stopped breathing during her abortion.
Gosnell, 72, could receive the death penalty
or life in prison for the charges. It was widely reported that Gosnell
performed 40,136 abortions in his clinic from 1988 to 2009.
“This guilty verdict is victory for
unborn babies around the world—and their mothers,” said Tim Wildmon, president
of American Family Association. “No longer will we look at abortion as just
another ‘simple procedure’ for the sake of convenience. In this case, abortion
killed a 41-year-old woman with a full life ahead of her. But abortion kills so
much more—human spirit, a child’s chance to grow up and flourish, and love that
can blossom in family relationships. We hope and pray that this decision today
will send a loud and clear message that abortion is wrong and it’s murder.”
