Stockman: Gosnell verdict exposes the crimes of abortion, inhumanity of Obama and Democrats

Press Release
The courts call it murder. Democrats call it “health care.”

WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Stockman released the following statement Monday afternoon:

A court has formally declared what people with consciences have long known.  Abortionist Kermit Gosnell is a murderer.

Gosnell killed his adult patient, and an unknown number of children both pre-born and born alive.  The courts call it murder.  Democrats call it “health care.”

Kermit Gosnell’s crimes have exposed the horrors and inhumanity of legalized abortion for all to see.  The most innocent and defenseless of humans are lined up and exterminated with cold efficiency for the crime of being inconvenient.

Despite the blood-soaked horror of Gosnell’s clinic, Democrats refuse to loosen their embrace of unrestricted, unregulated, taxpayer-funded abortion on demand.

Democrats do not want abortion to be safe or rare.  Democrats oppose even the most basic of health and safety standards for abortion mills.  Democrats don’t care how many women are maimed, infected with diseases or die on the routinely-filthy abortion mills.  Democrats worship abortion with same fervor the Canaanites worshipped Molech.

Even more chilling, as an Illinois state senator Barack Obama voted several times to make Gosnell’s inhuman crimes the law of the land.  I hope this verdict moves him to look into his soul and change his position.
