Guilty! Abortion “Doctor” Guilty of Murdering Babies and An Immigrant Woman

Will anything convince you that you've been sold a lie when it comes to abortion "rights?"

Will anything convince you that you’ve been sold a lie when it comes to abortion “rights?”

If this had been an upper or middle-class neighborhood, the media would have sensationalized this trial like they do every other high-profile gruesome trial in this country. But they had to protect their carefully crafted definition of abortion as “healthcare” so they ignored the story.

And because these crimes were perpetrated only on poor women and their babies, they were able to ignore the story for two years because nobody cared, right? It’s malpractice journalism. But they get away with it.  Thank goodness for blogs and social media!

Justice for a few of these underprivileged women and these babies today when Kermit Gosnell was convicted of the murders of three babies and one poor immigrant woman.  Sad that there were hundreds (or thousands?) more that will not receive recognition and justice.

A fantastic organization, Susan B. Anthony List, reacted to the verdict as well on Monday:

“The greatest tragedy is that Kermit Gosnell is not alone. Exploitation of women and complete disregard for their health and well-being are problems endemic to the entire abortion industry,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “There are numerous examples of negligence and even death in abortion facilities across the country. Now is the moment to realize that abortion is neither safe, nor rare. Abortion is a brutal, painful procedure, both for the child that it kills and the woman who it wounds. We must protect children both inside and outside the womb who experience unspeakable pain from abortion.”

Here is a portion of the AP story, in case you, too never heard of this trial:

Former clinic employees testified that Gosnell routinely performed illegal  late-term abortions past Pennsylvania’s 24-week limit, that he delivered babies  who were still moving, whimpering or breathing, and that he and his assistants  “snipped” the newborns’ spines, as he referred to it.

The grisly details came out more than two years ago during an investigation  of prescription drug trafficking at Gosnell’s clinic in an impoverished section  of West Philadelphia.

Authorities said the clinic was a foul-smelling “house of horrors” with bags  and bottles of stored fetuses, including jars of severed feet, along with  bloodstained furniture, dirty medical instruments, and cats roaming the  premises.

Four former clinic employees have pleaded guilty to murder and four more to other charges. They include Gosnell’s wife, Pearl, a cosmetologist who helped  perform abortions.

Midway through the six-week trial, the public accused the  mainstream media of ignoring the case because it reflected badly on the abortion  rights cause. Major news organizations denied the allegation, though a number  promptly sent reporters to cover the trial.

After prosecutors rested their case, Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey Minehart  threw out for lack of evidence three of seven murder counts involving aborted  babies. That left the jury to weigh charges involving fetuses identified as  Baby A, Baby C, Baby D and Baby E.

Prosecution experts said one was nearly 30 weeks along when it was aborted,  and it was so big that Gosnell allegedly joked it could “walk to the bus.” A  second fetus was said to be alive for some 20 minutes before a clinic worker  snipped its neck. A third was born in a toilet and was moving before another  clinic employee grabbed it and severed its spinal cord, according to testimony.  Baby E let out a soft whimper before Gosnell cut its neck, the jury was told;  Gosnell was acquitted in that baby’s death.

Gosnell’s attorney, Jack McMahon, argued that none of the fetuses was born  alive and that any movements were posthumous twitching or spasms.

He also contended that the 2009 death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar of  Woodbridge, Va., a Bhutanese immigrant who had been given repeated doses of  Demerol and other powerful drugs to sedate her and induce labor, was caused by  unforeseen complications.

Prosecutors described Gosnell’s employees as nearly as desperate as the  patients. Some had little or no medical training, and at least one was a  teenager still in high school. One woman needed the work to support her children  after her husband’s murder.

Stephen Massof, an unlicensed medical school graduate who could not find a  residency, told jurors that Gosnell taught him how to snip babies’ spines,  something he then did at least 100 times at the clinic.

  1. I honestly don’t know what to say. I’m pro-choice (but chose sterilisation due to my own medical issues) but I am definitely not pro-back street butcher or abortions after 24 weeks!

    This monster quite obviously took advantage of desperate women and caused harm rather than good.

    • Thank you so much for you comment. This whole trial has me raving mad. Monster is the right description. Abortion is never safe for women “spiritually.” Women suffer spiritually because they believe the lie that abortion is just healthcare, like any other medical procedure. And actually, men suffer too, including my husband from an old college relationship. In our spiritual selves, we know the truth even if we deny it and our friends tell us it’s just a clump of cells. We are each made up of a mind, a body and a spirit. We are all three. In this case, abortion robbed the body, too. But even in “safe” abortions, the spirit is always harmed. I’ll never stop advocating against abortion even if I’m the only one left on the planet to do so.

      • I have a son, but am no longer able to carry full term due to a hormonal imbalance – I’m lucky to even have him! I’m sure you’ve seen me explain before that he’s autistic with other learning disabilities, can be extremely violent and is therefore unable to live with me, but I adore him and see him as often as I can.

        Because of the genetics I passed to my son, and my own degenerating illness, I wouldn’t want another child anyway – but that doesn’t mean that being sterilised didn’t ever make me feel as though something had been taken from me.

        For me, it has to be a damned good reason – otherwise that healthy newborn, born to a healthy mother, could find a home with a couple who long for children but are unable to have them.

        • Ugh my heart aches for you that your son has such difficult problems and you has to be sterilized and I would feel the same way, like something has been taken from me. My husband was adopted and his adoptive mothers love for him equals that of a birth mother so adoption is an option but you know adoption should be easier and less expensive! Anyways, prayers for you and your struggles and kudos for your blog and bringing awareness to epilepsy and autism!

  2. I know, I was THRILLED with the verdict. He is a monster.
    Fetal Heartbeat: 18 days after conception.
    If you are pronounced dead when your heartbeat STOPS beating…..
    Why aren’t you pronounced alive when your heartbeat STARTS beating?

  3. Even the diagram, above, is horrific. I think we need to have faith that something good will come from this atrocity and the lives of the babies and the woman who died will not be in vain.

  4. Wow, thank you so much for posting this, I live in the Philadelphia area and had NO IDEA that the trial was going on. How unbelievably horrifying, I guess all we can do is pray… for those defenseless babies, the desperate mothers who attended the clinic, the hapless employees, and even for the doctor himself (although that last part is a tall order). I will be watching my local news tonight, they sure had better cover it!
