Washington D.C. (Office of Louie Gohmert) — Rep. Louie Gohmert released the following statement regarding the guilty verdict reached in the Philadelphia abortionist trial:
"The verdict in the Gosnell case certainly sounds appropriate based upon the evidence we've seen. Pro-life and pro-abortion supporters agree in their stances against the “murder” of a living human being. Unfortunately, there has been a disagreement about the point at which a baby becomes a life entitled to live. In this case, a very hard-working and discerning jury found that when a baby survives an abortion attempt, that child has a right not to be murdered. I am so grateful for that finding and will work and pray that this verdict will cause at least some babies to be saved in the future who otherwise would not.”
Congressman Louie Gohmert is the Vice Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. Prior to being elected to serve in Congress, Louie was elected to three terms as District Judge in Smith County, Texas. He also served as Chief Justice of Texas'12th Court of Appeals.
