Pennsylvania Abortion Doctor Charged With 8 Counts of Murder

Posted: January 19, 2011 in In The News

The story below is breaking news, posted by the Denver Post online this morning.  It is a very gruesome read, as it details the horrors of what this “doctor” has done to multiple babies.  Truly, this could have come from a horror movie.  The only good part of this is that he is actually being charged with murder.  All of the babies were at ages where they could have survived outside of the womb and could have been adopted by some of the many waiting couples throughout the U.S.  This story paints an unforgettable picture of the real horror of abortion and what goes on in some abortion clinics.  Notice how state officials ignored complaints about this abortion clinic and failed to investigate.  Where else is this happening?!  Abortion is an absolute nightmare, and we need to expose the truth behind the clinic walls…

PHILADELPHIA—An abortion doctor who catered to minorities, immigrants and poor women was charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors, prosecutors said Wednesday.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, made millions of dollars over 30 years, performing as many illegal, late-term abortions as he could, prosecutors said. State regulators ignored complaints about him and failed to visit or inspect his clinic since 1993, but no charges were warranted against them, District Attorney Seth Williams said.
Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord,” Williams said.
Williams said patients were subjected to squalid and barbaric conditions at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society.
Authorities went to investigate drug-related complaints at the clinic last year and stumbled on what Williams called a “house of horrors.”
“There were bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building,” Williams said. “There were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.”
The clinic was shut down and Gosnell’s medical license was suspended after the raid.
Workers, some of whom were also charged with murder, were untrained and unlicensed, including a high-school student who performed anesthesia with potentially lethal narcotics, Williams said.
Gosnell and nine other employees are in custody, authorities said.
Gosnell has been named in at least 10 malpractice suits, including one over the death of a woman who died of sepsis and a perforated uterus.
