Federal legislation banning most late-term abortions was introduced in 2013 after the trial of Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who was convicted of murdering three infants after they were born. According to Margaret Carlson, a pro-choice liberal columnist at Bloomberg, the lesson of the Gosnell trial was that "there's almost no difference between killing a baby accidentally born alive in a late-term abortion, as Gosnell stands accused of, and killing the same baby in the womb, as more skilled doctors can do." 

"What we need to learn from the Gosnell case is that late-term abortion is infanticide," wrote liberal, pro-life Daily Beast columnist Kirsten Powers. "Legal infanticide."
