Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) released the following statement regarding the conviction of abortionist Kermit Gosnell:
"I'm thankful that Kermit Gosnell will be held accountable for his brutality and that some measure of justice has been served for the atrocities he committed. This is a sad and horrific case -- one that reminds us there is no one more defenseless, or more in need of our protection, than the unborn. I continue to pray for the lives taken by Kermit Gosnell and for the families affected by his crimes."
NOTE: Last week, the House Judiciary Committee and House Energy and Commerce Committee sent letters to state attorneys general and public health officials urging them to provide additional information about the regulation of abortion clinics and prosecution of related crimes.
