Gosnell’s “House of Horrors”

I’m sure you remember the result of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell’s trial for murder. Even after persuading the judge to bump all pro-lifers off the jury, not even his slick lawyer could stop the jury of 12 from unanimously finding him guilty of 3 counts of murder.
But even more importantly, the case gave America a clear picture of what abortion is really about. Of course, Gosnell’s “House of Horrors” was first exposed when the FBI and Pennsylvania state police raided the abortuary for prescribing drugs illegally.

They got more than they bargained for. It turned out that this wasn’t just your run of the mill drug bust.  The officers who raided the clinic were stunned at the grisly scene inside. (Warning: what I’m going to describe now is hard to hear.)

Dismembered baby parts were everywhere — in milk jugs, bags, cat food cartons, even in the refrigerator next to staff lunches. In the basement they found a macabre trophy collection of severed babies feet, lined up in jars.

We would appreciate your donation.

Investigators described the abortion mill as “filthy,” “deplorable,” “disgusting,” with blood-stained floors and the heavy stench of urine in the air.

And in the freezer was a fully intact 19-week-old aborted child.

Ultimately Gosnell was charged with eight counts of murder – one charge for the death of a patient, and the others for killing seven babies after delivering them alive during the abortion procedure.


You see, Gosnell would regularly deliver babies and then deliberately kill them. “Snipping” the spinal cord of a newborn baby was considered “standard procedure” at Philadelphia’s House of Horrors.

Yet as you know, there has been a virtual blackout of coverage on the trial in the pro-abortion national media.

And quite frankly – I understand why.

How could they explain that Gosnell’s murder of newborn babies is sadistic and evil, but somehow justify that dismembering the same child in the womb is “moral choice”?

Gosnell delivered babies, and then killed them.

But if he had killed babies in the womb and then delivered them — that would be perfectly legal.  Kermit Gosnell’s only crime according to the law is that he just did it in the wrong order. This absurdity is precisely why Congress needs to step up and resolve this issue once and for all.

Please support the actions of tens of thousands of other NPLA members in support of the Life at Conception Act to overturn Roe v. Wade and end abortion-on-demand once and for all.

For Life,
