Gosnell’s Jury was Pro-Choice

Which makes the first degree conviction for ensuring the premature babies’ demise after they were aborted alive that much more significant.

Nine jurors were pro-choice which means they adopted a relative morality with respect to abortion.  Kind of like… everyone does whatever they want with their body.

Two jurors said they were neither pro-choice nor pro-life, which makes them indifferent to abortion.  

The remaining juror is assumed to be pro-life.

From the very beginning of the trial Delight in Truth was highly skeptical that a verdict of Murder One would come through.  Many experts expected a manslaughter conviction, at the maximum.  

The odds were overwhelmingly in Gosnell’s favor given the makeup of the jury, yet after hearing the testimony, the jury could not be indifferent to life.  The jury unanimously decided that those aborted babies were murdered by Gosnell.

The defense was shocked.  

They suspected coercion, or something fishy with the jury.  They insisted that each juror be questioned individually and asked if they agreed with the verdict.  

Each juror, one by one, was polled individually and each gave a resounding “I agree!” with the verdict.

A brief internet search reveals that this conviction may be the first of its kind in the post Roe v. Wade era.  It is a symbolic victory.  It shows how ridiculous it is to think that it is ok to kill a fetus in-utero, but it is murder to kill her post delivery.  It points to the double standard we accept in our society that it is ok to kill the unborn, as long as they are in the womb.

Let us hope that we will see a genuine pro-life shift in this country as a result of this trial.

Abortionists at large took notice of it, I guarantee it.

  1. Piper said something interesting yesterday relating to why we should stand against abortion. He said, “The reason we stand against the killing of babies is not because victory in a fallen world is likely. We fight because the nature of the sin is so public, and so egregious, and so contradictory to what enables a society to flourish, and so offensive to God, and so contrary to the spirit and precepts of the Bible, and so driven by motives that reveal unbelief in the word of God, that it would be a sin not to stand up and resist, in whatever way the Lord leads.”

    … it would be a a sin not to stand up and resist…. christianity fails at this on so many levels….starting way back when Roe v. Wade was passed.

    • I agree that a complete moral victory is not possible. Things are not meant to head in a right direction in this fallen world. Things will actually get worse before the coming of our Lord.

      In Canada for instance, morality is much worse… abortion laws are much more liberal, they abort through the entire pregnancy term!

  2. “It shows how ridiculous it is to think that it is ok to kill a fetus in-utero, but it is murder to kill her post delivery. It points to the double standard we accept in our society that it is ok to kill the unborn, as long as they are in the womb.”

    I so agree, Delight. A well-written and optimistic post. I hope things continue to go this direction in our courts.

    God’s blessings…
