US Archbishop condemns abortionist Goswell



CNS: A US bishop has condemned abortionist Dr. Kermit Goswell saying he
may have been convicted May 13 of murder at his Philadelphia abortion clinic, but "nothing can bring back the innocent children he killed, or make up for the vulnerable women he exploited." Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Philadelphia in a May 14 statement said "Gosnell is not an exception. Others just like him run abortion mills throughout our country. We need to stop cloaking the ugliness of abortion with misnomers like 'proper medical coverage' or 'choice. It's violence of the most intimate sort, and it needs to end." A Philadelphia jury May 13 found Gosnell guilty of murder in the deaths of three babies born alive during abortions and acquitted him of a fourth similar charge. He also was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death by a drug overdose of a patient who had an abortion. The 72-year old doctor was charged with snipping the spines of babies born alive during illegal late-term abortions. Pennsylvania law prohibits abortions after 24 weeks of gestation. The same jury was to convene May 21 to consider Gosnell's sentence.
