    Abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell has drawn national attention for his gruesome method of killing babies in an abortion-infanticide procedure that involves snipping their necks with medical scissors. The idea of jabbing scissors into the back of necks of babies shortly after their forced induced birth sounds like something out of a creep science fiction film. The reality is, as one pro-life blogger has put together, the idea came from an Ohio abortion practitioner in a paper presented to the National Abortion Federation. In 1992, abortion practitioner Martin Haskell wrote a seminal paper presenting the new partial-birth abortion method, which has...

    In previous articles, Live Action has covered cases where babies born alive after abortions were denied medical care and allowed to die, or, in some cases, were killed by direct action. The recent trial of Kermit Gosnell shows that these incidents continue to occur. The sheer number of cases we know about leads one to wonder how often babies are born alive but no one outside the abortion clinic ever knows. In April of 2005, a pregnant woman named Angele, decided to abort her 22 week old unborn baby. She was in her 30s, divorced, and already had two children....

    A couple weeks ago, I published a blog post discussing the reality of back-alley abortions 40 years after the legalization of abortion. The fact that abortion clinics are allowed to operate virtually unregulated in most states (either as a result of a lack of regulations or lack of enforcement) puts the health and lives of Americans in danger. In light of their demands that abortion be legalized for safety reasons, it is the ultimate form of hypocrisy that abortion advocates refuse to support regulations that would make facilities safer for women. The Gosnell trial highlights one such horrific instance of...

The appalling inaction of the nation's largest abortion provider, along with countless other clinics and "pro-choice" groups in the know, speaks far louder than their belatedly self-serving words. The criminal trial of Gosnell is entering week six. The death doctor faces seven counts of first-degree murder for severing the spinal cords of babies born alive during abortions.

    One person deserves the bulk of the credit for bringing to light the medias criminal neglect of the Gosnell trial, and thats liberal columnist Kirsten Powers. Yeah, she is often conservatives favorite liberal (although I have a few others), not only because shes a Christian, but also because she is intellctually honest and refuses to parrot the left-wing company line on stuff like Benghazi or even the treatment of Sarah Palin. But shes still a liberal and a strong Obama supporter, so you have to give her credit for calling the media out like this. Today on Facebook, Powers links...

    Lynda Williams told a jury Tuesday that her boss, Kermit Gosnell, was aware she suffered from bi-polar disorder and depression when he hired her to work at his House of Horrors abortion clinic in West Philadelphia assisting with late-term abortions.

Another clinic worker, Elizabeth Hampton, previously testified she suffered from depression and anxiety in addition to alcohol abuse, and that she once had a nervous breakdown. Yet another former Gosnell employee to testify, Sherry West, also admitted to being treated for mental health disorders. Williams told the...

    I thought this day would never come. The MSM can no longer pretend they didnt hear about the trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell (ABC News Terry Moran even tweeted last night that the murderer in question is probably the most successful serial killer in the history of the world). But still too many networks have failed to report on the details of the case. That being said, the indispensable pro-life website Life News has compiled a list of the ten most horrific revelations to emerge from the trial -- many of which have gone unreported. Warning: The eye-witness testimony below...

    Tina Baldwin, whose daughter, Ashley, worked up to 50 hours a week at Kermit Gosnell's abortion clinic starting at age 15, testified to the Grand Jury that Gosnell treated white women much better than he did "poor women of color." This included everything from how the patients were sedated to the only clean waiting room. Even when Gosnell was in the building, he did not oversee the administration of anesthesia -- except when the patient was white.

    Via Breitbart and Patheos, this image comes from JD Mullane of the Bucks County Courier Times, who is one of the few reporters covering the trial of Kermit Gosnell. If you want to know why there arent more reporters sitting in these seats, Mullane explains: Sat through a full day of testimony at the Kermitt Gosnell trial today. It is beyond the most morbid Hollywood horror. It will change you. Well, we cant have that, can we? Patheos Mollie Hemingway followed up with Mullane to confirm that the media section was really this empty, and Mullane confirmed:

    The picture above, for what its worth, is of the reserved media seats at the Gosnell trial. It was taken by JD Mullane, a news writer and columnist for the Bucks County Courier Times, The Intel and the Burlington County (NJ) Times. He says: Sat through a full day of testimony at the Kermitt Gosnell trial today. It is beyond the most morbid Hollywood horror. It will change you. I was surprised by the picture and asked really? He responded Local press was there, Inky, PhillyMag, NBC10 blogger. Court staff told me nobody else has shown up.
