The verdict is in. Kermit Gosnell is guilty of three counts of first-degree murder for killing babies born alive and one count of manslaughter for killing an adult patient.
In reaction, Jay Sekulow, ACLJ Chief Counsel, said this:
The verdict underscores the fact that killing newborn babies is murder, despite the fact that it commenced during an abortion process. The verdict represents a significant step forward in protecting human life, no matter how young. By rejecting the absurd suggestion that these babies were not alive when they were murdered, the jury sent a powerful message - there are legal consequences to taking the life of a newborn baby. Justice has been served with the verdict in this case.
