NBC’s Gifford Blames Abortionist Kermit Gosnell for Real ‘War on Women’

Published on

Whoa. This doesn’t happen every day – or ever. An NBC host just blamed a late-term abortionist, on air, for causing the real “war on women.”

On Wednesday, Today co-hosts Kathy Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb invited actor Dean Cain (Lois & Clark) on their show to talk about a new season of VH1’s Hit the Floor. But Cain didn’t stop there.

Gifford was the first to draw attention to Cain’s role in the upcoming Gosnell movie.

“What’s the movie you’re doing?” she asked Cain.

“Gosnell,” the 49-year-old star responded. “I just finished the movie, coming out in 2016.”

In the film, Cain plays the part of James Wood, the detective that investigated the case of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Directed by Nick Searcy and produced by Hat Tip Films’ Phelim and Ann McAleer and Magdalena Segieda,Gosnell is a crime drama telling what the media refused to: the story of the convicted abortionist.

“For some reason,” Gifford admitted, “I was talking about [Gosnell] this morning.” “The man who,” she explained to Kotb, “these women died in his abortion clinic down in Philadelphia.”

Cain then bridged the conversation to Gosnell’s infamous late-term abortions.

“One woman died,” Cain confirmed. “But he performed late term abortions on maybe even thousands of babies. But [he] was convicted for three after 24 weeks – six months. He did perform these late-term abortions.”

“It’s a tough story,” he added.

Gifford concluded, “Talk about a war on women.”

Kotb agreed: “No kidding, yeah.”

That acknowledgement – from someone in the media – is huge.

Kermit Gosnell was convicted May 2013 of first-degree murder of three babies (while the Grand Jury report, The Hollywood Reporter noted, “alleges Gosnell killed hundreds of infants by sticking scissors into their necks”).

But the trial, in which witnesses described baby abortion survivors “swimming” in toilets “to get out,” attracted a mere 12 – 15 reporters. Only after 56 days, multiple letters from members of the House of Representatives and a public outcry, did all three broadcast networks report on Gosnell.

The movie itself, sponsored by a crowd-funding campaign, faced censorship. But after raising more than $2.2 million, Gosnell became the most successful crowdfunded movie on Indiegogo.

The statement attributed to NBC’s Gifford regarding abortionist Kermit Gosnell and the “war on women” reflects a perspective that highlights the atrocities committed by individuals like Gosnell as evidence of a genuine threat to women’s health and well-being.

Kermit Gosnell, a former physician who operated an abortion clinic in Philadelphia, was convicted in 2013 of multiple counts of murder and manslaughter for his role in performing illegal late-term abortions and for his involvement in the deaths of several infants born alive during botched procedures. His case drew national attention and sparked outrage over the lack of oversight and regulation in the abortion industry.

By attributing blame to Gosnell for the “war on women,” the statement suggests that the true perpetrators of violence and harm against women are those who exploit and endanger them under the guise of providing reproductive healthcare. Gosnell’s heinous actions, which included unsanitary conditions, illegal procedures, and the mistreatment of patients, are framed as symptomatic of a broader disregard for women’s rights and safety within the abortion industry.

Furthermore, the statement implies that the narrative of a “war on women” propagated by some political factions overlooks or downplays the real harms inflicted upon women by unscrupulous abortion providers like Gosnell. It challenges the notion that abortion rights are synonymous with women’s rights, arguing instead that true advocacy for women’s health and autonomy necessitates accountability and oversight within the abortion industry to prevent abuses and ensure patient safety.

Overall, the statement underscores the need for a more nuanced and comprehensive approach to addressing issues related to abortion and women’s health, one that acknowledges and confronts the systemic failures and abuses that can occur within the abortion industry while simultaneously advocating for the rights and dignity of women.
