   RAISING AWARENESS ABOUT THE ATROCITIES COMMITTED BY KERMIT GOSNELL

  (Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN asked and was given permission to address the House 
for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
  Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to raise awareness about 
the grave atrocities committed by Kermit Gosnell against innocent lives 
at his Philadelphia abortion clinic. Witnesses called the clinic a 
``house of horrors'' and described a procedure known as ``snipping,'' 
in which the backs of babies' necks are cut with scissors to ``ensure 
fetal demise.''
  Abortion clinics across our Nation take the lives of 1.2 million 
babies every year. This is murder, and it must be stopped. We have the 
responsibility to protect the unborn, as well as the sanctity of all 
innocent human life.
  These wholesale murder clinics continue to take innocent lives. The 
prosecution of Kermit Gosnell is a positive step toward stopping our 
Nation's slide toward unrestricted abortions.
