Review of Gosnell’s Babies

UFL member John M. Grondelski has written a review of the e-book Gosnell’s Babies: The E-book, by Steve Volk. The review appears in the Fall 2013 issue of the Human Life Review. According to, Volk is the only journalist to have interviewed Gosnell since his conviction and imprisonment. Volk provides a more or less sympathetic look at Gosnell.  As Grondelski’s review says, however, “[I]n Gosnell one sees the logic of the abortion establishment carried to its logical extension, though shorn of the mellifluous faux compassion masquerading as a verbal fig leaf tbat covers up what we want to do but not to admit.”
