Fox News to air one-hour special on Gosnell trial

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 24, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Fox News will air a one-hour documentary on “house of horrors” abortionist Kermit Gosnell in two weeks.

The special program will air at 9 p.m. on Sunday, May 5, according to Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life.

The Gosnell story garnered national media coverage after a successful campaign on the social media site Twitter two weeks ago that generated more than half-a-million mentions of the abortionist and hundreds of thousands of uses of the #Gosnell hashtag.

The height of media coverage came when NBC's Today show questioned Barack Obama about the trial.

MSNBC also discussed the issue in the wake of the "Tweetfest." The CBS Evening News carried a segment about the horrific capital murder trial. CNN began its coverage with a segment on Jake Tapper's program featuring Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Joseph Slobodzian, who said Gosnell enjoyed "a pretty good reputation” before being arrested for murder.

“From everything we've heard, he served the community,” Slobodzian said. “If you couldn't pay, you got your medical care for free.”

Planned Deathhood may have to come out with fundraising before that special...

Obama's folks announced this morning that the president will not be the key not speaker for Planned Deathhood banquet...

Planned Deathhood = Planned Parenthood

JugEars chickened out. He lacks the courage of his evil convictions.

Every Catholic that voted for Obama should head directly to the Confessional, do not stop at Go, and do not collect $200.

Three would be lines around entire cities waiting in line to admit the sin.

You are correct as of now. JugEars has backed out of being the keynote speaker at PP in order to go to Texas? Texas? yes he will to attend memorial service for explosion victims. Seems Joe Biden couldn’t make it

>>>>>President Obama is delaying his speech to Planned Parenthood by a day in order to attend a Thursday memorial service for the victims of last week’s fertilizer plant explosion in Texas, officials said Wednesday.

He's going to the opening of President Bush's Library. The West, Texas Memorial Service is on his way to Dallas.

I don’t believe I could watch it....the anger, revulsion and dismay it would invoke would be hard to bear.....

This is from a guy who stitches his own wounds and acted in the past as a first responder....I’m not at all squeamish....

I just can’t tolerate infants being hurt in any way.....

My own kids, when they were infants and they had a minor injury, I would get my wife (she found it wildly funny).

Yet, at a traffic accident scene I could tourniquet a severed arm and retrieve the body part then go eat lunch....

Go figure....

I won’t be able to watch it and haven’t been able to click on any thread about this horror. I know there are terrible pictures and have heard enough just in the thread titles. It just breaks my heart as a mom, as a human being. This guy is a monster and there is a special place in hell for him.

We could have Gosnells in NYS, if Gov. Cuomo gets his way.

“Governor Cuomo, Don’t Let Gosnell Be a New York Story, Too”

But he has gone from a high profile Thursday night keynote speaker to a low key Friday morning speaker.

Basically, he has gone from Prime Time at this event to the sleepy morning hours...

Could Saudi financed FOX be running this story to distract people from the Saudi Bomber accomplice at the White House? Look, squirrel!

I’m sorry. I don’t have the stomache to follow this story. God bless anyone who does. You are a braver person than me. Can’t even read about it, I get so nauseated. Those poor innocent babies. My nephew was born at 25 weeks. Now he is Hugh:-) at 15 months.

Any time I see an article about it I go to the NY Post sports section.

It’s too much.

If you are uncomfortable with tracking the trial, then you can do your part by promoting films such as:

October Baby

This film can be purchased new (as DVD) at:

October Baby DVD, New

It may be available from other sites as well...

Amazon has it for over $14 for a new copy

The movie is about abortion and abortion healing, but there are no graphic scenes.

It might be something to try to promote among friends to get the pro-life message out.
