3 jurors picked in Pa. abortion doc's murder trial
Three women were chosen as jurors on Monday for the trial of a Philadelphia abortion provider charged with killing a patient and seven babies allegedly born alive.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, is charged with third-degree murder in a woman's 2009 death during a botched abortion. He also faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder in the newborns' deaths.
Jury selection is expected to take a week, given the sensitivity of the abortion issue and the death penalty.
The three jurors chosen Monday said they support abortion rights and could judge the case fairly....

If you notice this at all, sorry for the late reply. Yes it was a pithy comment, but if I had the authority, I would do exactly what I said! Thanks for pointing out the full ramifications of what I said. I admit to not doing that. But, you might have exaggerated the ramifications somewhat. Thanks for the response!
Ah, the folks Down Under have had their problems too. [URL=http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-03-07/anaesthetist-jailed-over-hep-c-infections/4558066]]]Anaesthetist jailed for infecting patients with hepatitis C[/URL]. Fifty-five women got infected with this at an abortion clinic.

True, but if all such were sentenced to the fitting penalty of death there would be few unsaved left to reach in our culture today. Not only that, but many saved sinners would also be executed. Not saying they should not be, just observing the full implications of the pithy statement.
