4:40 – Kermit Gosnell: Guilty
A jury has found abortion Dr. Kermit Gosnell guilty of three counts of first degree murder after deliberating for 10 days on the case. The jurors determined  the 72 year old killed four premature babies after they were born alive in his Philadelphia clinic. He was acquitted of one of those charges. Gosnell was also found guilty in the accidental death of a patient, who died after receiving an abortion and a mix of sedatives and painkillers at his clinic. We talk to Cheryl Sullinger of Operation Rescue who spent much time in the courtroom.
 
5:00 – Pope Francis Canonizes 800 Martyrs Slain By 15th-Century Islamic Forces
Pope Francis presided yesterday at the canonization of 800 people who died for the faith in Otranto, Italy, in 1480. The "martyrs of Otranto"-- whose names are not known-- were beheaded by the forces of the Ottoman empire when they refused to renounce their Christian faith. Their deaths came after a siege of Otranto by the Ottoman invaders. In his homily the Pope noted that European and Ottoman powers had clashed for decades. But the martyrs of Otranto were killed after the battle had been decided, because they refused to abandon their Christian faith. Without underlining the conflict between faiths, Pope Francis gently alluded to the continuing trials of Christians living under Islamic power. We talk to Andrew Bieszad who has written on the Saints of Otranto.
