Gosnell case is about murder

I am shocked and saddened that a newspaper would classify the horrific acts that this man has been accused of doing as an example of "medical malpractice, lax government regulation and dearth of decent health care" ("Kermit Gosnell and the 'liberal media,'" April 16).

Really, that's all you can say? You think that is what the "heart of the case" is here? Not the lives of the unborn? What is at the heart of the case is murder plain and simple, and none of the other things you listed concern me one whit when talking about the murder of innocent children. Even you referred to the case as "horrific," but you chose not to qualify as to why you thought it was horrific rather you chose to focus upon the conservative versus liberal angle to the case, ignoring the deaths of those seven babies. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
