The deplorable legacy of mass murderer Kermit Gosnell will never be forgotten among those who suffered the loss of loved ones at the abortionist’s hands.

But rarely does the mainstream media mention the name of the man who may have been the worst serial killer in U.S. history.

On a recent radio interview, I mentioned the abortionist who is now serving three consecutive life sentences for the murders of newborn babies. The host quickly interjected a comment ensuring that the subject of Gosnell would be brushed aside.

This is hardly surprising—although it is disturbing.

As former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer recently wrote in his book Suppression, Deception, Snobbery, and Bias, “When a doctor goes on trial for a series of horrendous baby murders, the media know if they give the story attention, it will likely cause people to think twice about abortion.

“Covering the ongoing story, as opposed to the one-time indictment, will generate sympathy for the pro-life movement that I would say has precious few adherents in most newsrooms,” Fleischer added.

Indeed, apologists for the abortion industry abound in newsrooms in Pennsylvania and across the country. That is why a resource such as National Right to Life News Today is so important. Readers can receive updates about the life issues unfiltered by the lens of pro-abortion bias.

We will never forget Kermit Gosnell’s reign of terror. Because to forget his crimes would do a disservice to his many victims, whose loss cries out to the heavens for justice.
