Botched Abortion Victim: Gosnell “Left an Arm and Leg Inside Me”
Life News ^ | Steven Ertelt

The Kermit Gosnell murder trial has exposed some gruesome and sobering details about Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell and his “house of horrors” abortion clinic. While jurors have heard details about a woman Gosnell killed in a botched legal abortion, they won’t hear much about other women Gosnell killed or injured in abortions.

In one of the earliest articles about Gosnell’s brutal practice, Operation Rescue Senior Policy Advisor Cheryl Sullenger divulged additional information about these women.

In one case, a woman getting an abortion from Gosnell received a botched, incomplete abortion that left parts of her unborn baby’s body still inside:

Gosnell’s recent troubles began when he killed Karnamaya Mongar, 41, on November 20, 2009, after she was overdosed on painkillers during an abortion in her 18th or 19th week of pregnancy. Some of the medication was illegally administered by an unlicensed worker, according to Gosnell’s suspension order. Mongar’s brother, Dambher Ghalley, told reporters that Gosnell’s abortion clinic was “dirty and bloody.”

But Mongar’s death was not the first for Gosnell. Semika Shirelle Shaw was killed in March, 2000; two days after Gosnell perforated her uterus during an abortion. She developed sepsis and died, leaving two children motherless. A lawsuit was settled for an undisclosed amount two years later.

Marie Smith is lucky to be alive after having had a botched abortion by Gosnell in 1999. She developed a high fever and slipped into unconsciousness a week after her abortion. She was rushed to the hospital where the source of her condition was confirmed.

“They showed me X-rays and said he [Gosnell] left an arm and a leg inside me,” Smith told a reporter. “I almost died. I thought he knew what he was doing, but I guess I was wrong.”

In fact, Gosnell has been named in over 40 lawsuits in the past twenty years.

One of those suits involved Dana Haynes, who had an abortion by Gosnell in November, 2006. Haynes alleges that Gosnell lacerated her uterus, cervix and her small bowel during the abortion.

Then there was the illegal abortion of 13-year old Malina Williams, who says she obtained an abortion by Gosnell without the required parental consent. Williams, now 32, told reporters that she could see bottles of jars filled with the remains of “little babies” and that after her abortion “she saw Gosnell cradling a bottle that contained the remains of her fetus.”

“Every time I go to the Internet, I find another horror story about this guy,” said Sullenger. “The story keeps getting worse, as we have found so many times doing our own investigations of abortionists across the nation. It is chilling to think of how many abortionists like Gosnell are out there that have not yet been exposed because of a general lack of oversight. The authorities just are not checking up on the abortion industry, unless something really bad happens to surface, as in this case. But what we do hear about is just the tip of the iceberg.”

Sullenger said, “If abortion clinics were inspected half as often as the local McDonald’s Restaurant, there would be no abortion clinics left open in the U.S. It really is that bad.”

“We pray that the exposure Gosnell has received will lead authorities to inspect and close every abortion clinic that presents a danger to the public – and that would mean all of them,” she concluded.

Thanks to Roe vs Wade, animals like this killer can keep plying their evil trade all the way to hell.

If we had a proper government (and I mean all the way down to the counties) this would never have stood. Of course a proper government would never tax the hell out of its corporations and citizens.

This may be the most evil, disgusting human to ever have lived. No small feat.

To hell with that woman . . . she consciously paid someone to kill her own baby . . . whatever the results were of that murder are on her shoulders too . . . she ought to be ashamed to say that that’s what happened to her own child.

I have no sympathy for her whatsoever.

An arm and a leg? Didn’t she mean “undifferentiated fetal tissue”? What exactly do these women think these doctors are doing during an abortion, performing liposuction? The entire abortion industry is founded on fraud, deceit, euphemisms, and self-delusion. I wonder how many women would have second thoughts if prior to an abortion they were required to sign a consent form that had an ultrasound photo of their unborn child, entitled “Consent to Kill my Unborn Child through saline burns, dismemberment, severing of the spine, piercing of the skull and/or decapitation”. If they want choice, let’s make sure that the choice is fully informed and that they know exactly to what they are consenting.

Good call. I was thinking the exact same thing.

Hope she has nightmares for the rest of her miserable life. Must dread “Mothers Day”.

They, like the quack who is killing their baby, are entitled to wear a millstone around their necks and be tossed into the briny deep.

Whoa, hold on...
While what she did was wrong and she suffers the consequences of her actions for the rest of her life, look at the culture she is in. The Big Lie that women buy into these days is there should be no responsibility for your actions...sleep around indiscriminately and get an abortion if you get caught.
Without knowing who this woman is, I give her a slight break for buying into the Big Lie.

She decided to murder her child, and she didn’t care about the method, until she herself was endangered.

If we’re supposed to feel sorry for that woman, sorry, I can’t. I have no sympathy for any “mother” who purposely tries to kill her own child. I am appalled at the cruelty of this evildoer toward innocent, unborn babies.

Yes her choice will cost her a lot more than an arm and a leg.

Part of me would agree with you but part of me knows there are people walking this earth who were born to a single parent who was too busy partying to actually raise them.

These people weren't raised with the knowledge of a loving God, brought to church or even taught right from wrong. They were (barely) educated in public skrools that indoctrinated them into a liberal mindset; where a woman's rights as the host trump those of the parasite that had the audacity to take up residence in her womb at a time that was inconvenient to her.

The part of me that knows this horrible condition exists prays to God that people like this woman find him, quickly.

Why is it that this story is not covered by main stream media?

That arm and leg was from your child, (mom?) left there by the medical hitman that you hired to butcher him/her.
