|Planned Parenthood, NARAL claim the Gosnell trial proves we need LESS abortion restrictions
Last week, pro-lifers across the country fought the media blackout of the gruesome Kermit Gosnell trial. And it worked. Media outlets around the country scrambled to respond and report on the ongoing trial of the baby butcher of Philadelphia.
Sadly, but not surprisingly, organizations like Planned Parenthood and NARAL were quick to put a pro-abortion spin on this horrific case. In an incredible warping of reality, these organizations have claimed that Kermit Gosnell proves we need even FEWER abortion restrictions, and it was actually pro-life laws that caused Kermit Gosnell to thrive.
In this piece for LifeSiteNews.com, columnist Kristi Burton Brown, exposes the twisted logic behind these absurd claims.
"Life Facts" Campaign Combats Pro-Abortion Lies
If anything helps keep abortion legal in America, it is the countless lies told about abortion. From saying a baby is a blob of tissue, to euphamistic terms like "abortion care," abortion thrives because of lies. Pro-Life Wisconsin has decided to fight back with a campaign we are calling "Life Facts."
Already, these images have been seen by thousands of people. Combat the lies, share these facts with a friend!
