                           THE GOSNELL TRIAL

  (Mr. WALBERG asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute.)

[[Page H2330]]

  Mr. WALBERG. Mr. Speaker, I rise with my colleagues today to ask why 
the media has not reported on this atrocity that's been going on 
related to Dr. Gosnell. I rise as a Member of Congress, but also a 
  I read an article just recently on this very issue that really 
brought to my attention what the problem is, why the media won't 
report. The article, talking about Dr. Gosnell, said:

       He regularly and illegally delivered live, viable babies in 
     the third trimester of pregnancy--and then murdered these 
     newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors.
       He overdosed his patients with dangerous drugs, spread 
     venereal disease among them with infected instruments, 
     perforated their wombs and bowels--and, on at least two 
     occasions, caused their deaths.

  Over the years, many people came to know that something was going on 
here. But then, Mr. Speaker, it ends by saying, ``But no one put a stop 
to it.''
  Until we stand as citizens of the United States, until ministers in 
the pulpit stand and speak for life itself, God-given, until we return 
to our foundational principles, the media, our Presidents, no one else 
will listen to the cries of these innocents. Mr. Speaker, it is time 
for America to stand in their defense.
