After Kermit Gosnell was found guilty of three counts of murder in the killing of babies in gruesome abortions and infanticides, the pro-abortion group NARAL released a statement attacking pro-lifers.

“Kermit Gosnell has been found guilty and will get what he deserves. Now, let’s make sure these women are vindicated by delivering what all women deserve: access to the full range of health services including safe, high-quality and legal abortion care,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL.

But she went further in her statement and blasted pro-lifers and their efforts to limit abortions and put restrictions on late-term abortions in place. She also placed the blame for the Gosnell horrors on pro-life advocates.

“Anti-choice politicians, and their unrelenting efforts to deny women access to safe and legal abortion care, will only drive more women to back-alley butchers like Kermit Gosnell,” she said.

This isn’t the first time NARAL has blamed pro-lifers for what Gosnell did.

She said earlier this month: “[W]e were the first out of the gate to call attention to this case. And you know why?… It’s because unfortunately as the anti-choicers try and restrict more and more doctors out of business, they are the ones keeping the Kermit Gosnells operating.”



Never mind that one researcher examined the record and found NARAL did not bring the Gosnell case to the attention of the world.

The former president of NARAL also blasted pro-lifers and blamed them for the Gosnell horrors.
