Pro-Lifers, Pro-Choicers Weigh in on Gosnell Trial

Ad Feedback

The murder trial for abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell is now in the hands of the jury, and both sides of the nation's abortion debate are weighing in on the trial.

Abortion rights advocates say the testimony points to the need for procedures to be more accessible.

Pro-life supporters say the media has under-publicized the trial out of fear it would weaken public support for abortion rights.

Dr. Alveda King, pastoral associate of Priests for Life, shared her thoughts on the case on Newswatch, April 29.

Washington Post politics writer Melinda Henneberger in a recent article said journalists "didn't write more because the only abortion story most outlets ever cover in the news pages is every single threat or perceived threat to abortion rights."

"In fact," she added, "that is so fixed a view of what constitutes coverage of that issue that it's genuinely hard, I think, for many journalists to see a story outside that paradigm as news."

Gosnell faces counts of murder for killing a female patient and four babies born alive in his clinic and several lesser charges.
