House Members Draw Attention to Gosnell Horror

Seventy-two House Members, including a number from the House Energy & Commerce and Judiciary Committees (including Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA)), sent a letter last week to the leaders of the NBC, ABC, and CBS networks critical of their previous lack of coverage of the high-profile Gosnell abortion court case. Led by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), the lawmakers declared, “[W]e see no excuse for your failure to report these stories other than blatant media bias. There is nothing ‘politically incorrect’ about reporting the negative impacts of abortion on women and children.”

Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortion provider, is on trial for killing four babies who survived abortions and a woman who died after an overdose of pain killer.

        monitoring abortion centers.
