During an interview on the Today Show, President Obama was asked about the horrific Kermit Gosnell trial currently underway in Philadelphia.

Obama indicated that he “couldn’t comment” on the case, but cited President Clinton’s desire to make abortions “safe, legal, and rare.”

Obama added that abortionists should be prosecuted if they were guilty of breaking the law.

“If an individual carrying out an abortion, operating a clinic, or doing anything else is violating medical ethics, violating the law, then they should be prosecuted,” Obama said.
