Well, duh. He's not on trial for performing abortions, and so you don't want people who would convict him for doing something legal.

Source: LifeNews.com, a blog no one's ever heard of with a politically issue-biased name
Factual Error in first sentence: Refers to fetuses as "babies", which is both biologically and English-language vocabulary incorrect, regardless of where you stand on abortion.
Sourcing fail: The "one report" that "indicates" their claim is from christiannews.net, which , even if you disregard the fact that everything it publishes is fabricated from nothing, would still be a secondary, not a primary source.

Prevent access to safe and professional abortions, and then complain about the horrific results.

If your religious conviction is in conflict with your ability to interpret the law, you have no business being a juror.  If you think eating beef is murder based on religious grounds, you should get dismissed from a case involving a beef farmer.

Ugh, Lifenews. It's one of the sites that just makes me feel nauseated- crazy, prejudiced people who border on domestic terrorism all advocating against something they don't understand basic facts about.

Also, they don't seem to understand that cases like this are EXACTLY why safe, legal abortion needs to exist. So no one is so desperate that they'd consider using a doctor like this.

Whole case is gross.

I also like how they quote the head of Operation Rescue- which is more or less a domestic terror group.

How many of those supposed "pro-life" jurors also support the death penalty?

/Call them what they are. Anti-abortion.
//Or religious wingnuts. That would work too.

I don't think that is an unreasonable question as the question isn't that he performed abortions (a legal activity) the question is in how he performed them in an criminal manner.

The Name: FTFA: "The Gosnell case is a watershed moment for the issue of abortion," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. "The discovery of his horrific practices helped shed light on an abortion industry that has run amok without oversight or accountability for decades, and has prompted significant changes in abortion laws and attitudes toward enforcement in several states."

Just in case anyone's wondering about this unusual term (which seems to be coming up more and more often lately) . . . yes, Republican voters actually believe that there's an entire multi-billion-dollar per year industry built entirely around performing abortions.  This industry, according to Republicans, even has an entire advertising wing in the form of the glorification of sex in mainstream media and non-abstinence-only sexual education in public schools.  Nurses and doctors at Planned Parenthood and other women's health facilities -again, according to Republicans- are specially trained to talk young, pregnant girls into having abortions so they'll be desensitized to the procedure at an early age and thus come back to give the clinics more of their "business."

I learned all of this listening to AM radio on a trip through rural Missouri.


If abortion really is a multi-billion dollar per year business, then Planned Parenthood is the equivalent of a titan of industry. Why should we as Americans try to punish those smart enough to run their own small business? If anything, we should be trying to increase the money they bring in so more good paying, abortion-related jobs can flourish in this country. You can read all about it in my new book, "Condoms and Prom Night: A Horrible Combination"

Actually, most non-medical dictionary references would agree with the definition of baby includes:
5.a human fetus.
