Gosnell Murder Trial Illustrates How Abortion Destroys Women and Children

The Abortion Doctor who provided abortions to poor minority women in the heart of Philadelphia, Kermit Gosnell, is on trial for the murder of two young women and eight children born alive.

Last week his assistant testified that at the direction of Dr. Gosnell he personally snipped the neck with scissors of 100 babies born alive. This shocking disrespect for women, children, and human life is repulsive. The only media outlet providing coverage for this trial appears to be the Huffington Post. Here is an excerpt from their report of last week's trail details:
Mass of estimated that he saw about 100 babies born alive and then "snipped" with surgical scissors in the back of the neck, to ensure their "demise."
Gosnell, who had another clinic in Delaware, typically came in only at night for the final part of the procedure, leaving Massof to monitor the pain-racked or highly sedated women.
"I felt like a firemen in hell. I couldn't put out all the fires," he testified.
Gosnell, meanwhile, took in more than $1 million a year, and kept $250,000 in cash under his mattress, prosecutors have said.
"He always led me to believe he was a poor, struggling urban physician and surgeon," Massof said. "I thought he was hurting financially."
Outside the courthouse Thursday, leaders of two black, anti-abortion groups condemned Gosnell as racist for aborting so many black babies during his 30-year career. Gosnell, who is also black, performed as many as 1,000 abortions a year, many to minorities and immigrants.
"Kermit Gosnell is a racist of the worst kind," Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union, said. "He is also a butcher who preyed on the women and girls of his own race – making millions of dollars from the desperation and despair of women from his own community."

  1. For those interested, here is a link to the case's public docket:


    The initial list of charges provides a fascinating, inside-look at Pennsylvania's abortion statutes (see e.g., "Abortion on Unborn Child of 24 weeks or more" - 18 § 3211). Although, at first glance, it's not readily apparent whether ALL the violations alleged were actually retained as charges for purposes of the trial - at least, not based on the docket.
