FRANKLIN, Tenn. (April 13, 2013) —David Fowler, President of The Family Action Council of Tennessee and original state Senate sponsor of Amendment 1 on next year’s November ballot related to abortion in Tennessee, made the following statement in response to the verdict in the trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell:
The verdict of the jury today, finding Dr. Kermit Gosnell guilty on three counts of murder, serves as an indictment against our nation.
We have turned a blind eye to what goes on in abortion clinics around the country. In the name of nice-sounding euphemisms like ‘choice’ and ‘reproductive health care,’ we have allowed babies, born alive, to be murdered across this nation.
It is time for Americans to look the abortion industry, members of Congress, and our judges in the eye and say, ‘Enough.’
The Family Action Council of Tennessee, which Fowler heads, was formed in 2006 by a group of citizens concerned about the growing negative impact of public policies on the family. FACT’s mission is to equip Tennesseans and their elected officials to effectively promote and defend a culture that values the traditional family, for the sake of the common good.
