The media is, by and large, ignoring the trial of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell because it puts the issue of late-term abortion “starkly into relief,” according to Charles Krauthammer.
Krauthammer expressed surprise that even pro-abortion forces have not condemned Dr. Gosnell and the practice of partial-birth abortion. “On this, I would think there would be unanimity in the country, and the reason that there is resistance, against either outlawing or heavily regulating it is because the pro-choice people imagine that any regulation, at any level, at any kind, is the beginning of the end of abortion rights. I think there is room for a national consensus on this.”
