The jurors have been selected for the trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Pro-life potential jurors were dismissed out of fear that they would a) convict no matter what, and/or b) in the event of a conviction, refuse to vote for the death penalty.
The dismissal of pro-life jurors doesn't trouble me too much. If anything, I think that supporters of "choice" will feel compelled to take this case very seriously, lest they be perceived as letting Gosnell off too easily. You certainly do not need to be anti-abortion to be horrified by the evidence in this case.
Gosnell is standing trial for eight counts of murder. Seven of the deceased are infants who were born alive before Gosnell allegedly cut their spinal cords. One is an adult woman who received an abortion from Gosnell and died in the process. He is also charged with "conspiracy, drug delivery resulting in death, infanticide, corruption of minors, evidence tampering, theft by deception, abuse of corpse, and corruption."
The story of Gosnell's "house of horrors" abortion mill broke over two years ago. If you need a refresher, watch the excellent documentary 3801 Lancaster, embedded below. Warning: graphic and disturbing content.
