Pro-Life twitterati force Gosnell case into public eye
The MSM were trying to ignore and black out news of the appalling case of multiple murder by Kermit Gosnell because it confronts us all with the horror of what the culture of abortion really amounts to.

Bloggers have also picked up on the story to ensure that the truth is known. From an increasing roll of honour, let me just list a few:
