Personhood USA: Gosnell is GUILTY of same crimes as other U.S. abortion providers

WASHINGTON, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As news of Gosnell's Guilty verdict is breaking, Personhood USA notes that Gosnell's criminal actions are no different than that of other abortion providers across the United States.

"Kermit Gosnell killed babies after they survived an abortion attempt, which is an action that was just recently sanctioned by Planned Parenthood," explained Jennifer Mason, spokesperson for Personhood USA.  "Planned Parenthood just recently testified that it is up to the mother and her doctor whether a baby who is born alive after an attempted abortion should be killed after delivery. Kermit Gosnell, Planned Parenthood, and abortionists across the country are guilty of killing innocent people. It is time for an investigation into Planned Parenthood's defense of post-birth killings at their own clinics and laws to end the barbaric practice of abortion entirely."

Abortion providers across the country use several methods to kill unborn children, including dilation and evacuation (D&E), a method extremely similar to that which Gosnell performed in his clinic.

"Abortion providers nationwide kill babies every single day using similar methods including dismemberment, stabbing, suctioning, and severing of spinal cords. All abortion clinics are extremely dangerous, and all of them kill living babies," continued Mason. "The location of the baby does not determine the personhood of the baby – whether in the womb or out of it, every baby should be protected."

"Gosnell is abortion personified," Mason concluded. "The faces of those babies killed at his clinic are representative of the faces of every baby killed at every clinic. Other abortion providers are just as guilty as Gosnell. The conditions may be different, but the results are the same – every abortion yields one dead baby and one wounded mother."
