Krauthammer’s Take: Media Ignoring Gosnell Trial Because It Puts Abortion Issue ‘Starkly Into Relief’

 

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.”
