ABORTIONIST TRIAL in Laura Hope Smith death, 9/7/10, finally
Laura died on September 13, 2007.
Now, after three long years, almost to the day, Rapin Osathanond, the abortionist involved in her death, will finally go on trial for manslaughter.
This is a landmark case in Massachusetts - the first trial of an abortionist in the death of a mother.
The trial will start on Sept 7th with jury selection and continue for 1 1/2 - 3 1/2 weeks at the Barnstable County Court House. Yes, I think it is open to the public. We'll have more news as the time approaches.
Not only is it almost exactly three years since Laura died, but the trial will be going on at the time of the primary elections here in Massachusetts. Let us hope it will remind people of the scourge of abortion when they vote.
We can expect that the media will down-play this important trial as much as possible. Please make very effort to write letters to the editor, call radio shows, and do whatever else you can to generate public awareness.
