Not murder when they're small?

This Catholic News Agency story says the murder trial of Philadelphia doctor Kermit Gosnell has produced graphic testimony of "beheadings" of infants who survived abortions, but the lack of national news coverage has drawn protests and criticism from pro-life leaders, congressmen, and professional journalists.

U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) took to the House floor on Thursday, decrying what he called a "national media cover-up" of the trial of Gosnell, who is charged with the first-degree murders of seven infants born alive after failed abortions.

"To this day, the national news media remains uninterested, indifferent -- AWOL. Why the censorship? Gosnell's 'house of horrors' trial fails to attract any serious and meaningful national news reporting," Smith said April 11.
