“The courts call it murder. Democrats call it health care.”

-Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX-36th)

Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, along with Representative Steve Stockman all issued statements Monday on the Kermit Gosnell verdict.

mikelee“This case has always been about more than one man. It’s about an unaccountable industry that for too long has preyed upon the vulnerable and the innocent,” said Senator Mike Lee (R-UT). Lee continued, “We must take steps in coming months and years to end the decades of corruption and violence in America’s late-term abortion industry. Whatever our views on abortion rights, we can all agree no one has the right to operate an unsanitary, unsafe abortion clinic, and government at all levels has a compelling interest in protecting innocent women and children from anyone who would.”

Ted CruzSenator Ted Cruz (R-TX) offered the following remarks, “No court can ever provide proper relief for the unimaginable pain that Kermit Gosnell inflicted on women and their children. His atrocities shed light on the truly gruesome acts of late-term abortion. We need to keep working to prevent such crimes against humanity–deliberate infanticide–from happening again. May we all remember this heart-breaking case as a vivid example of the urgent need to protect innocent human life at all stages.”

Representative Steve Stockman from Texas 36th District released this statement:

stevestockmanA court has formally declared what people with consciences have long known.  Abortionist Kermit Gosnell is a murderer.

Gosnell killed his adult patient, and an unknown number of children both pre-born and born alive.  The courts call it murder.  Democrats call it “health care.”

Kermit Gosnell’s crimes have exposed the horrors and inhumanity of legalized abortion for all to see.  The most innocent and defenseless of humans are lined up and exterminated with cold efficiency for the crime of being inconvenient.

Despite the blood-soaked horror of Gosnell’s clinic, Democrats refuse to loosen their embrace of unrestricted, unregulated, taxpayer-funded abortion on demand.

Democrats do not want abortion to be safe or rare.  Democrats oppose even the most basic of health and safety standards for abortion mills.  Democrats don’t care how many women are maimed, infected with diseases or die on the routinely-filthy abortion mills.  Democrats worship abortion with same fervor the Canaanites worshipped Molech.

Even more chilling, as an Illinois state senator Barack Obama voted several times to make Gosnell’s inhuman crimes the law of the land.  I hope this verdict moves him to look into his soul and change his position.

I applaud these three gentlemen for not being afraid to make a statement on abortion issues. Too many conservatives are trying to skirt the abortion issue and it is high time that we have some leaders with the guts to make it an issue. In 2013 American liberals celebrate a milestone that makes Adolph Hitler look like a choir boy. 50,000,000 (yes 50 million) babies have now been murdered in this country through legalized abortion.

Still the lies persist. This was never about a woman’s right to choose and people need to know that. This holocaust has been perpetrated on America for a whole lot of reasons that have nothing to do with a woman’s right to choose. Have you ever heard of Margaret Sanger?  If you want to do a little further research you can check out an article I wrote some time ago on the subject entitled “Americans Celebrate 50 Million Abortions in 40 Years…Hitler Would Be Proud.”
