U.S. Congressmen Hold Special Session to Expose Evils of ‘House of Horrors’ Abortionist

Washington, D.C. — Ten United States Congressmen participated a special session this week aimed at drawing awareness to the murder trial of a notorious Philadelphia abortionist, as well as the evils of the abortion industry.

The session was led by Representative Chris Smith of New Jersey, and was an effort to combat the failure of the mainstream media to cover the trial.

“If Dr. Gosnell had walked into a nursery and shot seven infants with an AR-15, it would be national news and the subject of presidential hand-wringing,” he declared on the House floor. “Will the decades-long major national news media cover-up of the brutality and violence of abortion methods ever end? Will Americans ever be told the horrifying details as to how—and how often—abortionists dismember, decapitate, and chemically poison innocent babies?”

As previously reported, abortionist Kermit Gosnell is facing seven counts of first degree murder for the deaths of babies who were believed to have been killed after their birth, as well as one count of third degree murder for the death of Karnamaya Mongar, a 41-year-old woman who died during an abortion. Over 30 other charges have also been leveled against the abortionist.

While Gosnell’s trial has been underway the past several weeks, featuring gruesome details from employees who admit that it was protocol at the facility to kill newborn babies by “snipping” their spinal cords, many believe that the mainstream media has been largely silent about the issue. In addition to online efforts to draw more attention to the “House of Horrors” run by Gosnell, a number of Congressmen from across the country desired to make their voice heard in the nation’s capital.

“Mr. Speaker, Kermit Gosnell is a predator who must be publicly exposed and openly denounced,” proclaimed Representative Merlin Stutzman of Indiana. “And that’s why I come to the floor—to bring attention to this case [so] that the American people are informed of it, aware of it, and realize the acts that are happening within our own country.”

“For years, Kermit Gosnell operated a factory of death … just across the street from a church,” lamented Representative Joe Pitts of Pennsylvania. “We should always remember that abortion is the most violent death known to humankind. … Abortion is violence against the unborn; it is also violence against women.”

“We ignore the tiniest human life at great peril, because as Gosnell demonstrates, flippancy for life creeps from the infant to the adult,” he added. “We must protect all life, no matter how small or at what stage.”

“The astounding reality is that Dr. Gosnell’s methods of killing babies who survive abortions are commonly used in clinics across the nation,” asserted Representative Roger Williams of Texas. “Similar deadly actions have taken the lives of over 1 million unborn children each year in the United States.”

“This is a violent act that is unjustifiable,” he continued. “I am a firm believer that every human being is created in God’s own image. Every life is precious, and we have an obligation to protect life at every stage. It’s time we get rid of this gruesome procedure once and for all.”

Others that spoke on the House floor included Keith Rothfus and Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Andy Harris of Maryland, Vicky Hartzler of  Missouri,  John Fleming of Louisiana and Scott Garrett of New Jersey. The special session lasted for nearly an hour.

Gosnell’s trial resumes in Philadelphia on Monday. He could face the death penalty if convicted.

    In 1973, The Supreme Court in Roe v Wade admitted it could not determine when the life of a child began based on presented or historic evidence. The Court’s admitted ignorance of the first stage of human development was pitted against the right of the mother to abort the “fetus.” The Court in its uncertainty of the genesis of life handed the decision of life and death to the mother and her doctor. Let us ask, was it sensible or even just for the Supreme Court to make a life and death decision while admitting inconclusive evidence and thus resorting to guesswork? We know it is the job of a judge to measure the facts of the case against the written law in making a decision, but the Supreme Court in Roe v Wade had no certain facts on child development and absolutely no law for a woman’s right to abort her prenatal infants. In fact, the Court admits it was working against the wisdom of state legislatures. The Court made this decision relying on the “substantive” due process clause and some penumbra of natural right of the woman. The Supreme Court’s approach fails utterly in the real meaning of due process as it abandons American law. America’s charter the Declaration of Independence declared that life is “inalienable.” If the Court had difficulty is determining when life began it needed only to consult the “Supreme Judge of the world” for its “rectitude” just as fifty six signers of the Declaration of Independence did during the revolutionary war. Our nation’s Supreme Judge revealed his laws and statutes in Scripture and our nation can not be ashamed of His revelation because His “rectitude” is incorporated into our laws by our charter of 1776. Our Supreme Judge declared in Exodus 20.13 “You shall not murder” and He gives us a case law in Exodus 21.22-24 “If men fight and hurt a pregnant woman so that she gives birth prematurely, and yet no harm follows, he shall be surely fined as much as the woman’s husband demands and the judges allow. But if any harm follows, then you must take life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot..” This case law clearly ties “life for life” (with no time reference) to the “pregnant woman” thereby calling the prenatal infant “life” from conception. If the Supreme Court had acted faithfully upon the “rectitude” of our American charter it would have left the darkness of uncertainty and entered the light of true understanding and today there would be no American Holocaust and fifty million Americans still alive.
