I don’t know how you can sympathize with a sick sadistic person but some are in the case of Kermit Gosnell, such as the writer for Slate Magazine’s Matthew Yglesias. Mr. Yglesias’s argument for having Gosnell’s deplorable clinic is that because there are not enough late-term abortion providers then you end up with someone that has a deplorable practice trying to handle the large demand.

“Our staff has been working for days trying to decipher this gobbledygook,” Sen. Sessions said.
