Jonathan Merritt point us to "another Gosnell." On a side note, I recently sat with a national (very liberal) religious leader, on the board of several national pro-choice organizations, who explains that this is what third trimester abortion looks like. Mind you, he was pro-choice and had all the reasons it was necessary even as we disagreed.

For that matter, why did President Obama vote against the ban on late-term abortion. No civilized society should tolerate this.
