Abortion House of Horrors: Why a Draw?

It's not so baffling that poor women saw convicted murderer Dr. Kermit Gosnell when you know the law.

"Abortion is never OK, under any circumstance," Gardner told The Root. "It kills children and maims women. But what Gosnell is alleged to have done is especially gruesome and grotesque. Each child that was born and delivered was allowed to be free, to breathe air, to see light, and then died brutally in the hands of their executioner. I hope and pray that the jury will see him for who he is."

At least for now, pro-choice and pro-life groups have a common enemy: Kermit Gosnell, and both sides are assiduously watching for the outcome of the trial.
