    White House spokesman Jay Carney today said President Barack Obama has no comment on the murder trial involving late-term abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell. A reporter asked: “There is a murder trial in Pennsylvania, that I know you now is getting a lot of attention — more attention that the media was not getting on it — Kermit Gosnell, this doctor who is accused of having delivering some babies who were literally screaming and then beheading them. He’s facing murder charges on that and it hasn’t been decided yet obviously, since he’s still on trial. Is the president following this at...

    PHILADELPHIA, April 12, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The gruesome report of the “house of horrors” abortion clinic run by Kermit Gosnell makes a profound statement about abortion – that it should be legal, according to a number of left-wing media outlets. Media Matters crafted a preemptive response to the Gosnell “tweetfest” today that generated more than 166,800 tweets in 12 hours. The liberal organization wrote that Gosnell's Women's Medical Society stands as "an indictment of the outcome if the anti-choice movement achieves its goals.” “Far from the practices of well-established medical facilities, the Women’s Medical Society was the modern-day back alley,...

    As the media enters day 257,685 openly pushing for gun control, the almost total national-media blackout on the murder trial of Dr. Gosnell, an abortion doctor accused of murdering seven babies, marches on. Wednesday, in the state of Delaware, a very similar story surfaced in local media, naturally: A series of emergency calls made from the Planned Parenthood of Delaware this year are raising concerns about what's happening behind the closed doors. … Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, former employee said, "It was just unsafe.

    Kermit Gosnell, a Pennsylvania abortion doctor, is on trial for a lurid series of lurid crimes at his clinic. I can't bring myself to describe them, so I'll let Kirsten Powers do it. Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven't heard about these sickening accusations? It's not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page.

    WASHINGTON, D.C., April 12, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Pro-life activists on new media have forced the hand of the mainstream media, as CNN has agreed to cover the Kermit Gosnell trial on at least two of its news programs. CNN's The Lead with Jake Tapper devoted one segment – the program's last before the weekend – on the trial, beginning at approximately 4:45 p.m. Eastern time. The coverage lasted less than five minutes. Tapper's only guest, Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Joseph Slobodzian, has attended the daily testimony for the newspaper. Tapper referred to the Gosnell trial as “a buried lede,” before telling...

    Lynda Williams told a jury Tuesday that her boss, Kermit Gosnell, was aware she suffered from bi-polar disorder and depression when he hired her to work at his “House of Horrors” abortion clinic in West Philadelphia assisting with late-term abortions. In fact, she was being treated by Gosnell for the mental health illnesses. Another clinic worker, Elizabeth Hampton, previously testified she suffered from depression and anxiety in addition to alcohol abuse, and that she once had a “nervous breakdown.” Yet another former Gosnell employee to testify, Sherry West, also admitted to being treated for mental health disorders. Williams told the...

    Yesterday, ten members of the U.S. House spoke out on the trial of abortionist, Kermit Gosnell, and called out the mainstream media for its basic blackout on Gosnell. As New Jersey’s Chris Smith eloquently stated: If Dr. Gosnell had walked into a nursery and shot seven infants with an AR-15, it would be national news and the subject of presidential hand-wringing. … Will the decades-long major national news media cover-up of the brutality—and violence—of abortion methods ever end? … Will Americans ever be told the horrifying details as to how — and how often — abortionists dismember, decapitate, and chemically...

    Testimony has concluded for the week in the murder trial of abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell. But, late Thursday, members of the jury heard from a teenage girl who found an odd work-study program at his clinic. Ashley Baldwin, a 15-year-old sophomore at University City High School, found herself employed at Gosnell’s abortion clinic and, despite no medical license or training, working alongside him performing gruesome late-term abortions. From an AP report on the testimony: Baldwin landed the job because her mother already worked there. She was paid, and in no time went from answering phones to doing ultrasounds, administering intravenous...

    A shocking photo of empty benches at the trial of abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell is making the rounds today and it exemplifies the lack of media coverage and attention to the case. The photo was featured on the religion blog Pathoes, which decried the lack of coverage and focus on the trial outside the pro-life and conservative communities. Mollie Hemingway summed up the lack of media attention this way: I’ve been writing about media coverage of abortion for many years. And so have many others.

In 2011, Ecuadorean illegal Nicolas Guaman, drunk at nearly three times the legal limit, ran through a stop sign in Milford, Mass., striking 23-year old Matthew Denice on his motorcycle. Denice was not killed by the impact, but died as Guaman tried to flee the scene, dragging Denice's body nearly 1/4 mile under...

Congressman Marlin Stutzman, an Indiana Republican, was one of the members who spoke on the House floor this afternoon to call attention to the horrific crimes Gosnell engaged in at his Philadelphia, Pennsylvania abortion clinic.

    WASHINGTON, D.C., April 11, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - "If Dr. Gosnell had walked into a nursery and shot seven infants with an AR-15, it would be national news and the subject of presidential hand-wringing." That was the challenging observation made this morning by Rep. Chris Smith, R-NJ, on the floor of the U.S. House. Because Kermit Gosnell instead allegedly snipped the spinal cords of seven newborn babies in a building called an abortion clinic, the national media has almost uniformly ignored the case, said Smith, something that he charged amounted to a deliberate "cover-up." Rep. Chris Smith "Will the decades-long major...

    Living in Chicago, I’ve observed press coverage up close on three of the most notorious mass murderers ever apprehended: Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, and Richard Speck. Speck tortured, raped, and murdered eight student nurses in Chicago in 1966. Dahmer murdered 17 boys and men in the Milwaukee/Chicago area between 1978-1991, keeping and eating some of their body parts. Gacy raped and murdered at least 33 boys and men between 1972-1978, burying many in the crawl space of his Chicago suburban home. In each case the press tripped over themselves to recount every morbid detail, anxious to feed the public’s...
