White House press secretary Jay Carney declined to comment Monday on the murder trial of Kermit Gosnell, a doctor who performed abortions in Philadelphia.

“The president does not and cannot take a position on an ongoing trial, so I won’t as well,” Carney told reporters.

President Obama is “aware” of the case and, without weighing in on it, Carney added: “Certainly, the things that you hear and read about this case are unsettling.”
