Archbishop Chaput on the Gosnell Verdict: "Stop Cloaking the Ugliness."

Archbishop Charles Chaput released a statement on Philadelphia abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell's guilty verdict for murdering babies:

The trial of Kermit Gosnell is over. His convictions will surprise very few. But nothing can bring back the innocent children he killed, or make up for the vulnerable women he exploited. We should keep the repugnance of his clinic conditions sharp in our memories, and we should remember the media's inadequacy in covering his case, because Kermit Gosnell is not an exception. Others just like him run abortion mills throughout our country.

We need to stop cloaking the ugliness of abortion with misnomers like "proper medical coverage" or "choice." It's violence of the most intimate sort, and it needs to end.



  1. He & Burke are outstanding US bishops.

  2. Fifty-five million souls aborted are tipping the scales of Justice. Every one of those souls is written on Gosnell's face. Gosnell is what Judith made of the Assyrian general Holofernes, a headless corps.

  3. Well said. Rather than feeling the shame they deserve and call to repentance, the murderers, the complicit media and their lobbyists in PP and naral are doubling down by blaming pro life and pro women supporters rather than accept their deregulation and coercive actions are responsible. The media will probably ignore the letter from Abp Chaput, but lashing out is somewhat expected too. Nothing like a liar to back up their lie.

  4. More and more I think of the villagers that the Allies required to walk through death camps to see what their silence had allowed to happen. But just as Mengela was just one face of the evil that was Naziism, Gosnell is just one face of the evil that is abortion. And both Naziism and abortion are themselves the same evil - the belief that some are less human than others and are therefore disposable.

  5. ....truly the bottom feeders and scum of the earth! fascist abortion supporters, providers and recipients actually think they will live forever!
    ....that if they do "die", it will be painless, quiet, loving and peaceful?

    ....just how naive and stupid can they be?

    ....their "hour of death" is going to be quite a spectacle! An underworld cacophony!
    ....they'll be scared wittless to be sure!
    ....they're too far "gone" to even know it yet!

    ....still, I have enough compassion to hope and pray, even for them...
