DC: Convicted abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell appears worried that more states are not considering late-term abortion laws like those passed in New York and introduced in Virginia, in an email obtained by The Daily Caller.
Gosnell expresses his “doubts” in the email sent from prison that “rural conservative” Pennsylvania would consider laws legalizing abortion up until birth. The piece of communication was part of correspondence between Gosnell and film producers of the movie “Gosnell,” and its veracity was verified by the Caller.
Gosnell was convicted of first degree murder in 2013 after killing infants that survived his failed abortions, as well as involuntary manslaughter after a woman died in his care.
Following his conviction, Gosnell claimed that his murderous practices would be “vindicated.”
“It helps that I very strongly believe myself to be innocent of the heinous crimes of which I am accused,” Gosnell said at the time. “I sort of understand the circumstances and 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 all become accepted within my lifetime. It’s out of sight and out of my control. But I feel strongly that that will occur.”
Earlier this year, when Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam suggested that babies in the dilation stage would be subject to a discussion between the doctor and the mother, some saw the comments as a fulfillment of Gosnell’s prophecy. more here
