Washington, DC - Two years ago today, a jury walked into a Philadelphia courtroom and convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell on three counts of murder. But this was anything but a routine murder case.

The victims were tiny babies in the late stages of pregnancy who were born alive during shoddy abortions at Gosnell's 'House of Horrors' abortion mill, then intentionally murdered by snipping their spinal cords through the backs of their necks while the infants struggled for life. The murder trial was extensively covered by Operation Rescue, which was in the courtroom for most of the trial.

Evidence presented during that case horrified many who heard of it, including Representative Trent Franks (R-AZ). Franks made it his business to seek protections for babies like those murdered by Gosnell.

Today, two years later, a vote is scheduled on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act introduced by Franks earlier this year, which will halt nearly all abortions after 20 weeks gestation, when babies are known to feel pain.
