McMahon called Gosnell “a dream client” who was “a complete gentleman” during the two and a half years the two men have known each other. And while McMahon admitted that “things went a bit awry” at the notorious Women’s Medical Society, he said it was “simplistic” to lay the blame at Gosnell’s feet. Instead, McMahon said, the real problem was that the state of Pennsylvania had turned a blind eye on the likes of Gosnell for 18 years.
It’s not as if McMahon was going to go on national TV and throw Gosnell under the bus, so his comments should come as no surprise. He was, after all, the lawyer that Gosnell paid to represent him, so one would expect McMahon to say nice things about his client, deflect blame and point the finger elsewhere, etc.
But the most surprising part of the interview came at the 8:15 mark, when McMahon had this to say about late-term abortion:
I’ve come out of this case realizing that 24 weeks is a bad determiner. It should be like, 16, 17 weeks, That would be a far better thing because the babies would not be even arguably viable at that point in time, and I think the law should be changed to that.
I think pro-choice would have still the right to choose, but they’ve got to choose quicker, and I think that’s something that should come out of this.
Planned Parenthood, NARAL, NOW, et al., have never met an abortion they didn’t like, and they fight tooth and nail against any and all legal restrictions on it, despite the fact that late-term abortions in particular have always been enormously unpopular with the vast majority of the American people.
But now, even the lawyer for the most notorious abortionist in America has admitted on national television that the current abortion regime has got to go.
The significance cannot be overstated.
