Sam Calhoun’s paper on Kermit Gosnell

Here is the abstract of Sam Calhoun’s paper on Philadelphia abortion provider Kermit Gosnell, and a link to the abstract and paper. Sam presented a version of this ┬ápaper at the University of Faculty for Life conference at Notre Dame in June 2011.

“This article focuses on three of the atrocities committed by Philadelphia abortion provider Kermit Gosnell: his shameful, destructive treatment of women; his brutal killing of born-alive infants; and his performance of illegal post-viability abortions. Pro-choicers and pro-lifers alike should unite in condemning, stopping, and preventing these abuses. Women seeking abortions need the protection of medically appropriate health and safety regulations; a civilized society should not tolerate the killing of babies, viable or not, once they are born; and viable fetuses deserve meaningful legal protection. The wider abortion controversy is sure to continue, but the combatants should join forces to achieve these three significant objectives.”
