Not everyone is aware of the trial in Philadelphia of Kermit Gosnell. He is an abortion provider who is on trial for the murder of a woman and born alive babies. The details are gruesome and can be found here and here. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
There has been limited coverage of this trial for reasons that are not clear to me. This gruesome behavior will, I hope, stir people to refocus on the issue of abortion and honestly answer the question of when does life begin. A famous tenured professor at Princeton University who is a bioethicist sees no problems killing babies up to 30 days after birth. His view of the world is that we should do what’s best for society and not be concerned with what is best for the individual.
James Taranto has written about the Gosnell trial and associated issues. It is worth reading and can be found here.
