Santorum Comments on Kermit Gosnell Murder Convictions

Verona, PA -- Former Republican presidential candidate and Patriot Voices Chairman Rick Santorum issued the following statement in response to the conviction of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell on three counts of first-degree murder:

"It's a bitter sweet day for those of us who stand for life; bitter, in that so many lives were lost at the hands of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, yet there's comfort in knowing that a jury sees him for what he is:  a murderer.  The murder conviction of Gosnell proves what I have been saying all along - abortion is an ugly business and those who make a living off taking the life of an unborn child need to be held accountable.  While in the U.S. Senate, I led the fight on the Partial Birth Abortion Ban and the Born Alive Infant Protection Act , something President Obama opposed as a legislator in Illinois.  If nothing else, I expect the Gosnell trial will shed light on the need to strongly enforce the Partial Birth Abortion Ban and support life from conception to natural death."

Hello Rick, as a Dad of eight I have seen babies at all stages.. all life is precious… abortion is murder at all stages… a baby will only grow in the womb and become a baby … every baby has a separate unique DNA from the moment of conceptions (always a separate unique human)… this case just proves and shows how horrible all abortion is…I am from PA and was proud how Rick stood for life. Thank you Rick
