Hope for Kermit Gosnell’s repentance?

The truth of abortion … the hope for Gosnell’s repentance

A conviction in the murder trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell has boosted the efforts of pro-lifers to demonstrate what abortion really is.

The 72-year-old Gosnell, who operated a filthy abortion clinic on Philadelphia’s west side, was found guilty Monday of killing three babies born alive during late-term abortions and causing the death of an abortion patient. The jury is to return later this month to determine punishment for the former abortionist.

Gosnell faces a possible death penalty for his crimes, but Troy Newman of Operation Rescue is hopeful that Gosnell will receive life in prison. “I want to see people be given the opportunity to repent,” he says. “I like the idea of extending grace even in the midst of judgment like God does in our lives – then [Gosnell] can spend the rest of his days in an isolated cell contemplating what he’s done.”

A life sentence, says Newman, is Gosnell’s only hope for repenting and coming to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Gosnell’s co-defendant, Eileen O’Neill, also was found guilty by the same jury of conspiracy, participation in a corrupt organization, and theft by deception.

More ‘Gosnells’

Newman tells OneNewsNow the most damaging testimony during the trial came from former clinic workers, “saying that they delivered babies who were breathing and screaming, and then they slit their necks or clipped their spinal columns.”

“That is not done to a clump of cells,” states Newman. “So the jury – and really all of America – was put face to face with the graphic reality” that what emerged from the womb was a living human being who was killed. That, he says, is abortion.

Dr. Alveda King with Priests for Life says the trial exposed the fact that abortion kills a human being. “In the pro-life movement, this is definitely a victory,” says the niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King.

The pro-life activist counters the recurring theme of abortionists that the womb contains just a blob of tissue. “Life begins from natural conception or fertilization until natural death. And that means that we don’t kill people in the womb,” she offers. “Once people are born we don’t kill the infirm, the sick, the elderly, or the poor.”

King contends there are “Gosnells” in the abortion industry throughout the country who need to be exposed and prosecuted as well.

According to Newman, Operation Rescue has documented abortionists similar to Gosnell for years. “And now that we have a first-degree murder conviction on this, you can rest assured that the pro-life movement is going to press for further murder charges against abortionists in every community,” he adds.

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council says it is critically important that the American people realize this sort of thing really does happen all across the United States.

“I’ve talked about it before, but back in 1999, I authored in my home state of Louisiana a Clinic Regulation Act, which passed, was struck down in court, and we came back and did it again the following year,” he shares. “But the reason was because of what happened at a clinic in Baton Rouge. There was an undercover investigation [which] showed the rusty instruments, the bloody floors, just the unsanitary conditions because a woman almost died because of a botched abortion.”

Perkins also addresses the mainstream media’s reluctance to cover the trial itself, despite its usual fascination with such graphic evidence and testimonies.

“We’ve been following this story now for over two years, but it took a recent social media campaign for the mainstream media to give it any attention,” he says in reference to last month’s “Tweetfest” calling attention to the media’s lack of coverage.

“In fact, a recent Gallup survey showed that this case is one of the least-followed news stories out of the 200 that the group has measured since 1991 with only 25 percent of the American [adult] population following it very closely or somewhat closely, compared to 61 percent average level of attention.

“Well, there’s a reason they haven’t been following it,” the FRC president concludes: “Because the media hasn’t followed it.”

Perkins made his comments Monday afternoon on Washington Watch.
