Bucks County Courier Times columnist J.D. Mullane reports from the courtroom via Twitter that Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell has been found guilty of murder in three of the four 1st degree murder charges against him. Gosnell murdered three children, according to the jury, that had been born alive during the course of separate abortion procedures.
Courtroom fell silent as #Gosnell found guilty of murdering babies A, C and D. He faces death in each case.

The pro-abortion fake Catholic group “Catholics for Choice” has long sought to spread confusion among Catholics by claiming that it is “Catholic” to be for abortion and contraception. In Kenya, they are using a billboard campaign, which they have ludicrously dubbed “Condoms for Life,” to do just that. John Cardinal Njue and other Catholic bishops in Kenya are having none of it, though. In a press conference, they slammed “Catholics for Choice” and called on all Catholics to “ignore” these billboards. Thanks be to God for their stand against “Catholics for Choice.”
Here’s video from Citizen News in Kenya.
Never mind that Catholic hospitals are more committed to serving the poor than other healthcare institutions. Liberals in Washington are opposing Catholic healthcare because it doesn’t include abortion, suicide, and support for homosexual lifestyles. These things, for the liberal, trump care for the poor.
Catholic hospital leaders said that changes in the medical and economic landscape could threaten service to millions of Americans in rural and suburban areas who might have no choices at all if their local hospital closed or shrank, and that Catholic partners — driven by a mission to serve the underserved — are uniquely fitted to help. The issue is not availability of abortion or consult to the dying, they say, which will still be available in secular institutions not that far away, but access to care at all.
“The Catholic health system is in many of the communities we’re in because other health care providers have not wanted to serve those communities and have not had a commitment to serve every human being,” said Peter Adler, a senior vice president at PeaceHealth, a Catholic hospital system based in the Pacific Northwest that is one of the bidders for the three hospitals in northwest Washington.
But critics said that Catholic hospitals do not, in fact, serve every human being because they deny certain reproductive services or end-of-life care that could help a dying patient end his or her suffering.
The “critic” they quote to convince you that Catholic healthcare must be stopped is a “Catholic lesbian” which is kind of like quoting Martin Luther, the German monk who led the 16th century protestant revolt in Germany, to ask his thoughts on Catholicism.
“It’s a collision course,” said Suzanne Holland, a science and values professor in the department of religion at the University of Puget Sound, referring to the potential of constriction in health care options from economic change, and at the same time restricted choice on moral grounds at hospitals operated through a lens of religious doctrine.
Professor Holland, a Catholic and a lesbian, said she already tried to avoid going to a Catholic hospital near her because she was concerned that administrators there would not recognize the rights of her civil union partner.
For the liberal, it’s more important (or, at least, just as important) that homosexuality be deemed sacred than for a child in poverty to get treatment for an illness like influenza, or for an injury like a broken femur from falling out of a tree. If homosexuality, abortion and suicide are not deemed to be sacred by a hospital, then that hospital must not be allowed to expand, according to Washington liberals.
Today, Live Action Films has released a fourth video in the “Inhuman” investigation series which documents the brutality of late-term abortion in America. The latest video features Dr. Leroy Carhart of Nebraska being visited by two separate undercover Live Action investigators, both of whom were pregnant women at 22 and 24 weeks gestation. Carhart is one of four late-term abortionists in America “canonized” at the Sundance Film Festival.
Watch Live Action’s investigation of Leroy Carhart in the video below:
Carhart described his practice as a late-term abortionist in a 2011 interview as the will of God.
I was brought up in a family that was religious. My wife and I were active in the church until it became too dangerous for us to go— George [Tiller] and I used to joke about that. I went a couple of times with him, but I don’t go to any church actively now. I don’t think you have to go to a church to be a religious person. I think if you’re asking do I believe in God, yeah, I do. I think what I’m doing is because of God, not in spite of God.
I think it’s no different than with someone who has had a heart attack: If we were to save their life are we going against God’s will because if medicine didn’t intervene, the patient was going to die? Is that what God wants, for a person to die? That’s not an issue, not a question. It’s the same thing with a flawed pregnancy. People wouldn’t think God created a flawed pregnancy to punish or test the parents. I think that it’s just like any other medical condition, something that happens. God has provided us with a way to educate people to help take care of it. I think that because a certain, small group of people don’t believe in it doesn’t mean that it’s not the right thing to do.
Father Marcel Guarnizo wrote in February of this year:
Carhart has been described to me by his own staff as the “most evil person” they have ever encountered. Even Mr. Stave [an owner of the Maryland clinic where Carhart works], who continues to be instrumental in the damage and death of women and babies in Maryland, has described how he loathes Carhart. But I guess Carhart pays the rent.
