Abortionist Gosnell Blames “Catholic Presence” For His Conviction

Kermit Gosnell, the abortionist whose filthy, blood-spattered clinic has been dubbed a “house of horrors”, blames “a Catholic presence” for his conviction.

The district attorney’s long involvement with the Catholic Church, according to Gosnell, created an atmosphere of religious bias in the courtroom.  In Gosnell’s mind it was that “atmosphere”, not his illegal actions, which resulted in his convictions for first-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and performing illegal late-term abortions.

Gosnell believes that his 200+ violations of Pennsylvania’s Abortion Control Act were justified, because he was serving the best interests of his community, and of the women who came to him for care.  In his first interview since his conviction for snipping the necks of babies born alive during attempted abortions at his clinic, Gosnell told Steve Volk, writer for Philadelphia magazine,

“In an ideal world, we’d have no need for abortion. But bringing a child into the world when it cannot be provided for, that there are not sufficient systems to support, is a greater sin. I considered myself to be in a war against poverty, and I feel comfortable with the things I did and the decisions I made.”

As further evidence that the killer feels no remorse for his heinous crimes, Gosnell penned several poems in support of abortion, including this one dated April 2013:

Abortion Providers
Are Labeled Killers!
Horrendous, Exploitive
Barbaric, Inhumane
Not Physicians, Oathed To Heal
Lest We Forget,
What Chance Have Those?
Those Without The Support
Of Their Parents
Their Families
Their Communities
Their Societies …
So Many
Without Sufficient Support
Stumble Into Drugs
Into Crime
Into Mental Illness
Into Institutions … And …
Languish in Jails …

Lord, help this creep.

    I think Satan has possession of him. Pray.

    What an act of pride. No humility even in the end. I’m so glad we Catholics had a hand in it. We should send him a Christmas card with the baby Jesus right in front and sign it from us Catholics.

    “No sufficient support systems” ~ ??? Our country is full of support systems: governmental, private, religious.

    i don’t have a dog in his fight, but he does have a valid point about care in this country. or the lack there of. most of the prolife folks here(indiana) are partial prolife. they are prolife until birth then you are on your own. pro death penalty.

    how about the little born and unborn children that we kill with drones and special ops? we treat monkeys better in the usa, which ain’t sayin much. pray. pray. pray.

      You must be living in an alternate universe, Billy. The pro-life people I know are pro-life all the way, providing assistance for the mother and baby, supporting life until its natural end. Perhaps you haven’t really encountered pro-life Catholics yet.

          How ridiculous you are billy. Because we can’t save 29 million babies all around the world, give them loving families, and a college education that makes us not pro-life?

          • breid1903

            we can save them but we have priorities and that ain’t one of them. half of out federal budget goes to the war dept. you figure it out. it ain’t hard.

        google “jeremy stodghill”. a roman catholic hospital argued and won a case of wrongful death by claiming “a fetus is not a person”.

        one of my kids is a partial prolife catholic. my wife asked me not discuss religion or politics for that matter with them. believe me they don’t bring it up. they did once. it’s not a fair fight, they watch tv and i read. as in the new americian bible. patheos, red letter bible and anything that i can link to. they don’t have a copy. i don’t either but it’s online. i like to read the bible online because there are a lot of translations to compare. i really wish that they knew their bible.

        there is certainly enough money to take care of all these kids, but apparently we don’t want to. you tell me why. where are our priorities? we’ve got wars to fight and junk to buy. etc. i’d say lol, but it ain’t funny. sad sad sad. i could go on, but i’m tired. goognight.

          our priorities, it seems, is to cheat and not teach the younger generation anything about religion, God, manners, kindness. It is all about secular egocentrism, a la Miley Cyrus.
