Mr. WALBERG. Mr. Speaker, I rise with my colleagues today to ask why the media has not reported on this atrocity that's been going on related to Dr. Gosnell. I rise as a Member of Congress, but also a minister.
I read an article just recently on this very issue that really brought to my attention what the problem is, why the media won't report. The article, talking about Dr. Gosnell, said:
He regularly and illegally delivered live, viable babies in the third trimester of pregnancy--and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors.
He overdosed his patients with dangerous drugs, spread venereal disease among them with infected instruments, perforated their wombs and bowels--and, on at least two occasions, caused their deaths.
Over the years, many people came to know that something was going on here. But then, Mr. Speaker, it ends by saying, ``But no one put a stop to it.''
Until we stand as citizens of the United States, until ministers in the pulpit stand and speak for life itself, God-given, until we return to our foundational principles, the media, our Presidents, no one else will listen to the cries of these innocents. Mr. Speaker, it is time for America to stand in their defense.
