In the end it was the pictures of those babies struggling for life in a Philadelphia abortion clinic that got to the jury and led to the murder convictions of Kermit Gosnell.
Jurors were disgusted by what they saw and heard. The obscuring of gruesome details about abortion has allowed the slaughter of more than 55 million babies and the lies told to their reluctant mothers. In Philadelphia, it all came out.
How ironic that the ruling came the day after Mother's Day. These babies who were murdered showed signs of life, including breathing and crying, and yet the jury found that Gosnell and the witnesses who testified about what he did were blatantly insensitive to those signs of life and murdered them by cutting their spines.
One reporter who covered the trial entered the courtroom a pro-choicer. After hearing the testimony he said he is now pro-life. Imagine the effect if the nation could see and hear what those jurors saw and heard. It's time to end the secret killings and cover-ups.
