As I’ve said before, here, about this case: the official line is now that Gosnell was the fault of – wait for it – right-wingers and anti-abortionists. Irin (sic) Carmon at Salon: “How often are the travails* of the women whose vulnerabilities Gosnell exploited — the poor, immigrants and otherwise marginalized** people — given wall-to-wall, trial-level coverage?….Cost is also how women often get past the legal gestational limit, as they struggle to save up enough money — and Gosnell’s willingness to break the law was what made him their last chance. To everyone who thinks his case was a reason for more abortion restrictions: What he did was already illegal.*** ****” (Emphasis and snidey comments mine.)
**It’s pronounced “margarinized“.
***Yes, Einstein. Hence the trial.
****And yet something tells me she’s in favour of more gun control.
