A pro-choice reporter who has been present in the courtroom listening to testimony in the Gosnell trial has changed his mind on abortion, according to one of his fellow reporters.
That's the power of the Gosnell trial, reporter JD Mullane told former Gov. Mike Huckabee during a recent appearance on the Huckabee Show.
Mullane, a pro-life columnist for the Bucks County Courier Times, has been present in the courtroom from the very beginning of the Gosnell trial. His regularly-updated Twitter account has become the go-to place for breaking updates on the case.
There is one journalist sitting in that courtroom who writes for a local publication who has told me that he is very liberal, very pro-choice, Mullane told Huckabee, but after sitting through the testimony in the Gosnell trial, he's reconsidered. He's changed his mind.
Testimony in the case has featured former employees of Gosnell describing how hundreds of babies, many of them past viability, were born alive in the clinic only to have their spinal cords snipped by Gosnell or one of his assistants. Employees described babies moving, breathing, screaming, and even "swimming" in a toilet after being born alive.
For 40 years abortion in this country has been waged in the court of public opinion. This is a court of law. And the testimony that comes out of there is under oath, said Mullane. None of the evidence is doctored. It's for real. It's a capital case. And the testimony of one witness is far heavier than all the pro-choice editorials and op-eds that have ever appeared in, say, the New York Times.
Pro-life activists have charged the mainstream media with ignoring the Gosnell trial over fears that publicity will hurt the cause of legal abortion. Mullane suggested that their fears are well-founded.

There are multitudes of Gosnells still to be uncovered.

Mullane is pro-life.

And exactly why would you want Mr. Mullane to have a change of heart? Wouldn't that be,um, wrong?
I think everyone who is in favor of Abortion must perform one.
Yep. The full horror of late-term abortion, graphically
revealed to a pro-choice liberal, changed his or her mind.
That is why the MSM had to suppress it. I now firmly believe the media is our number one problem, with public
education a close second.
^ That’ll change there mind quick...
Plus, you know, the only people in favor of Abortion are already born.
The Michigan case.
>>Dr. Alexander perforated the womans uterus so badly that it was hanging on by two blood vessels, the physician wrote. The decapitated head of a fetus was in the womans abdomen and the large intestine had been grasped and pulled away from its blood supply and into the vagina. The woman required a hysterectomy, colonoscopy, and several units of blood to save her life.<<
They’re being shut down or closing on their own as new laws requiring real inspection, licensing and actual doctors are being passed. Scattering like cockroaches.
Defending a Man's Right to say: "Git rid of it...bich."
I’ve worked in neonatal icu’s since the mid-eighties, and
taken care of many small people, weighing 500gms and up. A rare few smaller. That elective abortion takes place after
viability sickens me.
To witness an infant born at viability, struggle for breath
and warmth, and walk away, reveals a cold, damaged person.
Every bit helps, but that's sort of depressing.
But he has the opportunity to make the case to a much larger audience. Hopefully his paper will not treat him as CBS did Bernie Goldberg.
Perhaps the trial will one day be remembered as doing for the life movement what “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” did for the abolition movement...
Whoopee ding, another idiot that has to see to believe.
During the partial birth abortion ban controversy, I was making the case in an email group about why it should be banned. Most of those people were non-children having major libs.
Well, after I described the procedure in great detail, I was even called a liar! They had no idea what they were viciously defending.
Then I pulled the ultimate. I described (as most are PETA types) the exact same procedure, step by step, except I described it being performed on a puppy.
I could feel them pulling their brains out from across the country.
