Jailed abortionist Kermit Gosnell has weighed in on the laws abortion activists are pushing nationwide to legalize abortions up to birth. He bemoans the fact that his home state of Pennsylvania will not likely approve a New York-style law to allows unlimited abortions right up to the day a baby is born.
Gosnell made the comment in an email to the Daily Caller, as shown below:
Although it Pennsylvania will not likely adopted an abortions up to birth law, Gosnell, who was convicted of killing babies by snipping their necks in live-birth abortions, was eerily correct that his horrific abortion practices would be adopted elsewhere.
In 2017, Gosnell told the maker of the movie that bears his name: “It helps that I very strongly believe myself to be innocent of the heinous crimes of which I am accused…I continue to feel optimistic of the eventual outcome…the vindication of what I’ve done, why I’ve done it and how [it] will become accepted within my lifetime.”

Sure enough, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo wasted no time signing the radical pro-abortion bill into law hours after the state Senate and Assembly passed it. Cuomo said he hopes other states will follow in New York’s footsteps and pass similar pro-abortion laws.
“With the signing of this bill, we are sending a clear message that whatever happens in Washington, women in New York will always have the fundamental right to control their own body,” he said at the time.
The so-called Reproductive Health Act goes beyond Roe v. Wade, allowing unborn babies to be aborted even when the U.S. Supreme Court has said states may restrict abortions. Late-term abortions, which currently are illegal in New York, would be allowed, and non-doctors would be allowed to perform them. The law appears to restrict late-term abortions, but it adds a broad “health” exception for abortions after 24 weeks. The exception would allow women to abort unborn babies up to nine months of pregnancy for basically any reason, including “age, economic, social and emotional factors,” according to New York Right to Life.
