Update: 5/14/2013: Kermit Gosnell was sentenced to two life terms without the possibility of parole. Gosnell gave up his right to appeal in exchange for the life sentences in lieu of the death sentence.
Kermit Gosnell who has violated every imaginable health law regarding abortion clinics has been found guilty of three first-degree murder charges in the deaths of three babies. He was found guilty of third-degree murder in the death of a young mother. He was acquitted in the death of one baby.
He appeared shocked at the verdicts. Gosnell’s defense attorney was also shocked and he appeared angry.
Gosnell could face death or life in prison.
Gosnell, 72, faced 4 first-degree murder charges for the deaths of the babies and one third-degree murder charge in the death of a young mother he overdosed. He faced 227 counts of failing to observe Pennsylvania’s 24-hour waiting period before performing an abortion, two dozen counts of performing abortions beyond the state’s 24-week legal limit, and various other charges, including conspiracy and running a corrupt organization.
Abortion clinics throughout the United States are not undergoing inspections. Gosnell’s clinic has not been inspected since 1983.
The government that loves to control and regulate won’t regulate abortion clinics.
Gosnell’s defense used a trumped up charge of racism as the reason for the charges even though there was no evidence of that and many of his victims were black.
The media, except for Fox News and the local Philadelphia news, refused to cover the Gosnell story describing it as a local story not worthy of national attention. In actuality, the media didn’t want to deal with the abortion issue.
The AP carried one story about Kermit Gosnell by Maryclaire Dale. She described Gosnell as elegant.
This is how elegant he was.
Dr. Gosnell ran a multi-million dollar abortion business and has been charged with 7 counts of killing babies who were born alive. It is believed he actually killed hundreds.
He is also charged in the death of a young mother who his untrained staff over-medicated at his behest.
He took advantage of young, frightened teens who came in pregnant and poor.
Gosnell took fully-developed, born-alive babies, cut a slit in the back of their necks and snipped their spines. In other words, he beheaded them. Some of the babies lived after their spines were severed and suffered an excruciatingly painful death.
Gosnell the Elegant is also suspected of running a drug business out of his offices. Police originally searched his business looking for evidence of drugs. Instead, they found $250,000 in cash and the brutally murdered bodies of fully-developed babies.
“This baby is big enough to walk around with me or walk me to the bus stop,” laughed Dr. Kermit Gosnell just before he snipped the baby’s spinal cord, according to one young associate.
One baby was seen swimming in a toilet before he was murdered. Another was breathing on his own for 20 minutes. One was killed after an employee played with the baby.
