Abortion Doctor Charged With Murder
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.
Dr. 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," Mr. Williams said.
Mr. Williams said patients were subjected to squalid and barbaric conditions at Dr. Gosnell's Women's Medical Society.
Authorities went to investigate drug-related complaints at the clinic last year and stumbled on what Mr. Williams called a "house of horrors."
"There were bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building," Mr. Williams said. "There were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose."
The clinic was shut down and Dr. 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, Mr. Williams said.
Dr. Gosnell and nine other employees are in custody, authorities said.
Dr. 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.
Conservative spin: "ALL abortions are muder."
Liberal spin: "Scissor Control legislation."

Bull fucking shit. I'm pro-choice but I would be 100% in favor of banning late term abortions. I'm not sure exactly where the line should be drawn (2, 2 1⁄2 months?) but I absolutely think there should be a line.
There's not enough punishment in the world for that sick bastard. Fuck!
It's not "Bull fucking shit" it's a fucking fact. The fact that you don't agree with late term abortion is irrelevant. I'm not getting into an huge fucking abortion is right or wrong debate. I stated a fact and there's no arguing the ugly truth that goes with it. I believe that most states only allow abortions till the end of the 1st
I can't think of one single reason for anyone to have a late term abortion. If you carry it for that long, why not give birth and give it up for adoption?
