Seventy-two Congressmen 'Profoundly Appalled' That ABC, CBS, NBC Ignored Gosnell, Post-Birth Abortion Stories

Yesterday 72 congressmen sent letters to the executives at the news divisions of ABC, CBS, and NBC expressing that they were "profoundly appalled" at the broadcast networks censoring the Kermit Gosnell murder trial and the official testimony by a Planned Parenthood representative in Florida opposing a law to stiffen criminal penalties on abortionists who fail to provide medical care to babies who survive abortion attempts.

The effort was organized by Reps. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Steve Scalise (R-La.) and joined by 70 of their colleagues. You can read more at Blackburn's official website here. [Update: Only one Democratic congressman, Dan Lipinski of Illinois, joined in on the letter.]
