The defense attorney for abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell is furious about the Fox News special that aired Friday and Sunday nights exposing the gruesome abortions and infanticides that took place at his abortion clinic.
Jack McMahon claims the special was designed to sway members of the jury, even though jurors have been instructed to not watch or read any media coverage of Gosnell and the murder trial.
As local Philadelphia reporter J.D. Mullane reported on Twitter this morning:

McMahon said Fox News “See No Evil” about Kermit Gosnell designed to sway jury. “It was irresponsible to put on that show,” he said. — jdmullane (@jdmullane) May 6, 2013
Following McMahon’s outburst, Judge Jefferey P. Minehart called the jury into the courtroom and instructed them to let him know if they watched the Fox News special. As another local reporter Tweeted:
Leading pro-life advocates pushed the Fox News special “See No Evil – The Kermit Gosnell Murders” heavily over the last week. CLICK LIKE IF YOU’RE PRO-LIFE!
Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life said it is up to the pro-life movement to expose Gosnell to the nation, with the mainstream media largely punting coverage of his trial.
“Our nation is becoming like Nazi Germany,” he said. “The effort to defend Kermit Gosnell, on trial for murder, is a clear sign of this. The evidence against “Doctor” Gosnell is clear. Not only did he kill a 41-year-old woman, he brought multiple babies into this world and then callously, maliciously and without remorse took a pair of scissors and mercilessly severed their spines and killed them!”
“Kermit Gosnell’s defense attorney is saying there wasn’t enough evidence that these babies were alive after birth. He got some of the seven charges dropped for the murder of these babies! As if that takes away the horror of what he did,” he says. “There were in fact many more than the seven. But a court trial proceeds based on the evidence. So now the focus will be on the rest of the seven babies and the woman who was killed. The defense will do everything possible to acquit Gosnell altogether.”
