WASHINGTON, D.C.—Notorious serial killer and champion of women's rights Kermit Gosnell is set to attend Trump's State of the Union address this evening as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's special guest, sources confirmed Tuesday.
Gosnell is serving life in prison but was let out at Pelosi's request to attend the event. The House Speaker stated she wanted a guest who could stand for reproductive healthcare and women's rights during Trump's speech. She called the move a "powerful statement" against those who would infringe on a woman's right to choose.
"Bringing this brave man along to the State of the Union sends a powerful message to the anti-choice bigots," Pelosi said in a press conference. "When state law forbade him from aborting late-term infants, he did so anyway. He is a strong, brave freedom fighter who was simply ahead of his time."
"We Democrats are just now catching up to him when it comes to late-term and post-birth abortion policies," she added.
Gosnell is to be seated next to Planned Parenthood's president, Leana Wen.
