Pitts' Statement Gosnell Verdict


Location: Unknown

Congressman Joe Pitts (R, PA-16) made the following statement regarding the guilt of Dr. Kermit Gosnell:

"Kermit Gosnell deserves the fullest penalty of law. This case is a reminder that we must do more to protect the lives of women and children, especially the youngest babies who haven't yet been born. If Gosnell had severed the spines of those babies before delivering them, many of their deaths would have been legal. America needs to think long and hard about the morality of that.

"As long as it remains legal, this case shows that abortion clinics need closer scrutiny and regulation. We should not make the mistake of assuming Gosnell was completely unique."
