In the wake of the horrific Gosnell trial, pro-abortion activists said restricting abortion is what breeds the Kermit Gosnells of the world. The New Zeland pro-abortion organization said Gosnell is a reason to legalize abortion there. But these people ignore one huge, glaring fact. Kermit Gosnell operated a legal abortion mill. A lack of protective laws and inspections is what permitted him to maim women and brutally kill so many babies. America has very liberal abortion laws. What’s happened is the abortion industry closed the back-alley entrance and moved it to main street, but everything in-between stayed the same. Evidence shows several legal, late-term abortionists are killing babies after they’re born in filthy, poorly run abortion mills. Legal abortion breeds Gosnell abortions.
