Gosnell Trial

Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) led a Special Order on the floor of the House of Representatives to draw attention to abortionist Kermit Gosnell and his trial.

Gosnell is being tried for eight counts of murder. One count is for the death of an adult woman who underwent an abortion at his clinic. The other seven counts are for the deaths of newborn babies who survived their abortion, but were then killed when Gosnell or his staff “snipped” their spines.

In the words of the Grand Jury report: “Gosnell had a simple solution for unwanted babies: he killed them. He didn’t call it that. He called it ‘ensuring fetal demise.’ The way he ensured fetal demise was by sticking scissors in the back of the baby’s neck and cutting the spinal cord. He called that ‘snipping.’ Over the years there were hundreds of ‘snippings’.”
