Incredibly, in describing the horrors of Gosnell, not once does NARAL even allude to the babies he killed. The post refers to "[a]ll the women whose lives were affected" and "what Gosnell inflicted on women." It reads in part:
This week, a jury returned a guilty verdict in the case against Kermit Gosnell.
This man will pay the price for the horrible acts he committed. All the women whose lives were affected deserve at least this much.
The Gosnell tragedy should serve as a wakeup call that we need to work even harder to ensure that all women have access to safe and legal abortion care. We can't let anti-choice politicians use the Gosnell trial to make it even more difficult for women to access abortion care.Planned Parenthood issued a similar yet shorter statement on the Gosnell verdict:
“The jury has punished Kermit Gosnell for his appalling crimes. This verdict will ensure that no woman is victimized by Kermit Gosnell ever again.
“This case has made clear that we must have and enforce laws that protect access to safe and legal abortion, and we must reject misguided laws that would limit women's options and force them to seek treatment from criminals like Kermit Gosnell.”Planned Parenthood made no reference to Gosnell's baby-killing convictions either.
