Pro-Life Wisconsin Welcomes Kermit Gosnell Guilty Verdict
BROOKFIELD, WI – Today the infamous late term abortionist, Kermit Gosnell, was found guilty of three of four counts of first degree murder in a trial that has revealed the true horror of abortion. Pro-Life Wisconsin welcomes this verdict, but condemns the hypocrisy of legal abortion in all its forms. Pro-Life Wisconsin Director of Communications, Sam Guzman, offered the following comments:
“We recognize that a baby does not have to be born to have intrinsic worth, nor does a human life have to reach a specific stage of development to bear the dignity of a person worthy of protection under the law.
While Kermit Gosnell will now suffer the due punishment for his crimes, abortion remains legal in America, free to be practiced in all 50 states throughout all nine months of pregnancy. Through legal abortion, approximately 4,000 babies die each day in the most horrific fashion, and their deaths go unpunished.
Until all babies are protected---in the womb or outside of it---justice remains to be done. It is for this justice that we will continue to fight. Pro-Life Wisconsin calls on all Americans to recognize the personhood of the unborn and end abortion once and for all.”
