Kermit Gosnell Attorney Furious About Fox News Murder Trial Special
Life news ^ | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 05/06/2013 12:14:17 PM PDT by Morgana

The defense attorney for abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell is furious about the Fox News special that aired Friday and Sunday nights exposing the gruesome abortions and infanticides that took place at his abortion clinic.

Jack McMahon claims the special was designed to sway members of the jury, even though jurors have been instructed to not watch or read any media coverage of Gosnell and the murder trial.

As local Philadelphia reporter J.D. Mullane reported on Twitter this morning:

and

Following McMahon’s outburst, Judge Jefferey P. Minehart called the jury into the courtroom and instructed them to let him know if they watched the Fox News special. As another local reporter Tweeted:

Leading pro-life advocates pushed the Fox News special “See No Evil – The Kermit Gosnell Murders” heavily over the last week. CLICK LIKE IF YOU’RE PRO-LIFE!

Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life said it is up to the pro-life movement to expose Gosnell to the nation, with the mainstream media largely punting coverage of his trial.

“Our nation is becoming like Nazi Germany,” he said. “The effort to defend Kermit Gosnell, on trial for murder, is a clear sign of this. The evidence against “Doctor” Gosnell is clear. Not only did he kill a 41-year-old woman, he brought multiple babies into this world and then callously, maliciously and without remorse took a pair of scissors and mercilessly severed their spines and killed them!”

“Kermit Gosnell’s defense attorney is saying there wasn’t enough evidence that these babies were alive after birth. He got some of the seven charges dropped for the murder of these babies! As if that takes away the horror of what he did,” he says. “There were in fact many more than the seven. But a court trial proceeds based on the evidence. So now the focus will be on the rest of the seven babies and the woman who was killed. The defense will do everything possible to acquit Gosnell altogether.”

Is that what he's really "furious" about, or is it the exposure of the cause to a large population-at-large that's got him mad? He was counting on the MSM to keep it quiet, in order to contain the outrage to just Gosnell.

This is an easy jury instruction to follow. There has been no news coverage of this.

As long as the jury didn’t see it, his objections are mute.

...assuming this jury reaches a verdict.

Yeah. CNN has been running this Jodi Arias thing constantly. I guess that case is “sexier” than the House of Horrors.

My view as well. He is the walking, talking portrait of the legal profession’s Dorian Gray.

Someone just didn’t ride him hard and put him away wet, they rode him nonstop in a ‘round the world sailboat race. It is funny that my first impression was of an old Jim Carey in “The Mask”

Kermit should have been thinking about what he was doing when he was doing it!

Do not think for a minute that Gosnell is alone in this.

Planned Parenthood is a baby killing machine.

Abortionists are the lowest form of life IMO.
Right next to Gosnell’s lawyer.

That is all that CNN has. Just look at their “brilliant” coverage on the Boston bombing.

Lawyer for Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell accused of killing live babies plays the race card, says client victim of ‘prosecutorial lynching’

On trial for killing seven babies born alive, Kermit Gosnell’s lawyer said in court that prosecutors are applying “Mayo Clinic” standards to his client’s West Philadelphia practice, which catered to the poor.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/abortion-doctor-lawyer-plays-race-card-article-1.1292008#ixzz2SXolE900

“This is a targeted, elitist and racist prosecution of a doctor who’s done nothing but give (back) to the poor and the people of West Philadelphia,” the fiery McMahon insisted to the predominantly black jury, as Gosnell sat serenely taking notes. “It’s a prosecutorial lynching of Dr. Kermit Gosnell.”

Fox News did a great job and they have a very large audience. Gosnell is just being exposed for the monster that he his.

****************************************
True enough ,, but they are the friendly corporate baby killing machine ,, you can’t go to PP and have a 24+ week baby killed ... they will give you a referral to Gosnell or someone like him ,, and they approve ,, but they won’t do it themselves ... it might compromise them getting that next government school clinic deal or that grant for (fill in the blank).

If we can’t convict a man like Gosnell, then we are totally doomed in this nation.

I caught it last night and was horrified. I used to be pro-abortion but got my mind right about 10 years ago. This guy had 15 yr olds doing medical procedures! Near full term babies just murdered, women treated without respect and without regard to their medical condition.

I lived not too far from there, but never heard of this guy. How someone can be so humanless, so brutal, without everyone knowing, I don’t know. Well, I do - as one witness said, “I did what I was told to do.” Disgusting ‘people.’

It doesn't matter to me, or to God for that matter, whether those babies were killed in the womb, the birth canal, or after birth. What matters to me, and should matter to every decent human being, is that those tiny, innocent, human beings were painfully, torturously murdered in either case.

The only proper sentence for murder aforethought is death, but in light of the current lenient attitude of most Americans regarding moral issues I don't expect anything more than a light slap on the wrist for this despicable baby murderer and possibly his willing accomplices. But true justice will be eventually served, if not in this present world's court it will be served in God's Supreme Court.

On that note, I have no doubt that unless the 7 Justices of the USSC who voted in 1973 to legalize murdering babies in their mothers' womb have repented or will repent of that unspeakable sin and seek forgiveness through the blood sacrifice made by Jesus Christ on the cross they will join the murderous Philly doctor in one of the warmer cells of hell.

If they weren't alive then why snip their spines?

“Jack McMahon claims the special was designed to sway members of the jury, even though jurors have been instructed to not watch or read any media coverage of Gosnell and the murder trial.”

I can understand this. There is NO WAY that I would EVER trust a trial to give me all the facts. The first thing I would try to figure out is whether the accused has a history of priors. If he’s walked before, even though it was clear he was the killer (or whatever), he won’t do well with me.

I realize that I’m supposed to ONLY judge the crime at hand, but if the person should have been in jail 10 times over, I WILL find that out and take that into account. Countless people have died because of what jurors were not told.
