                           THE GOSNELL TRIAL

  (Mr. HUELSKAMP asked and was given permission to address the House 
for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. HUELSKAMP. Mr. Speaker, there's been a lot of talk in recent 
months about a ``war on women,'' but those using the term to attack 
pro-life supporters should look a little closer to home for the real 
war on women.
  Abortion proponents would like us to believe that the atrocities 
being discussed at the murder trial of Philadelphia abortion provider 
Gosnell are neither standard nor acceptable practice in the abortion 
industry. But evidence indicates otherwise.
  The so-called Aid For Women abortion clinic in Kansas City has also 
been the subject of several investigations into the care provided to 
women and the cleanliness of the facility with reports very similar to 
those coming out of the Gosnell trial.
  And with abortion providers all up and down the east coast referring 
patients to Gosnell's clinic, I find it hard to believe that no one 
knew of the conditions, the wretched conditions at this clinic. That is 
where the real war on women and war on children is occurring.
