Dr. Kermit Gosnell is on trial in Philadelphia for committing several murders of babies who were born alive after he performed late-term abortions on the mothers. Specifics at the trial include descriptions of the sounds the babies made as they were killed, the snipping of spinal cords of living babies, and the atrocious conditions at the abortion center. The Spokesman-Review has had one column by Mona Charen recently about this issue, but no news coverage that I can find by doing a name search on the S-R website. Why is this atrocity being ignored by our local newspaper?
(Editor’s note: Articles on the case appeared on Feb. 5, 2011, and Jan. 20, 2011, when Gosnell was charged.)
