Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) yesterday led a Special Order on the floor of the House of Representatives to draw attention to Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell and the failure of the national media to cover his trial.
Gosnell is being tried for eight counts of murder--one for the death of an adult woman who underwent an abortion at his clinic and seven for the deaths of newborn babies who survived their abortion, but were then killed when Gosnell or his staff "snipped" their spines. From the Grand Jury report:"Gosnell had a simple solution for unwanted babies: he killed them. He didn't call it that. He called it 'ensuring fetal demise.' The way he ensured fetal demise was by sticking scissors in the back of the baby's neck and cutting the spinal cord. He called that 'snipping.' Over the years there were hundreds of 'snippings.'"
Over 1.2 million unborn children die in abortions every year in the United States.
