Philly Doctor Facing 8 Counts Of Murder
CBS ^ | January 19, 2011 9:24 AM | CBS

Posted on 01/19/2011 8:00:22 AM PST by TSgt

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Eyewitness News has learned that a West Philadelphia doctor, his wife and eight other suspects are now under arrest following a grand jury Investigation.

Sources say Dr. Kermit Gosnell faces eight counts of murder in the death of a woman following a botched abortion at his office at 38th and Lancaster Avenues, along with the deaths of seven other babies who, prosecutors allege, were born alive following illegal late-term abortions.

Four of the suspects, some improperly licensed, also face multiple counts of murder for allegedly killing the newborns.

All of the suspects are now behind bars after warrants were served overnight.

Dr. Gosnell, who has practiced in the West Philadelphia neighborhood for decades, is also the target of a federal grand jury investigation into illegally prescribing prescription drugs.

Investigators say during a search of his home, they found $240,000 in cash.

The doctor, in past interviews with CBS 3, has proclaimed his innocence, predicting if charged, he will be acquitted.

The Philadelphia District Attorney has scheduled a press conference for 10:30 a.m. to officially announce details of the arrests and the grand jury presentment.’

Only a matter of time before this evil is legalized and the monsters are released from prison.

Nobody can or will do anything about it. America is already dead.

Obama has defended this practice. He sees nothing wrong with it.

"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. District Attorney Seth Williams says state regulators ignored complaints and failed to visit the clinic since 1993."

"The Pennsylvania Department of State's Board of Medicine said that a search of Dr. Kermit Gosnell's abortion and pain management clinic found "deplorable and unsanitary" conditions, blood on the floor, and parts of aborted fetuses in jars."

38th and Lancaster is one of Philly’s worst ghettos, where you roll up your windows and keep your foot on the accelerator and hope you do not have to stop at a red light. I say this having traveled to all kinds of neighborhoods all over the city for 25 years, at all hours of the day and night.

Someone on the left has probably already nominated him for the Noble Peace Prize. To them, this killer is a God among men.
Planned Parenthood will probably build him a statue, so the leftists can stop and pray to him.

“and parts of aborted fetuses in jars.”

Were those in case the Doctor needed a quick snack?

Never under any circumstances treat leftists like human beings. Every last one of them is a murderer.

Sounds like the state regulators should be arrested and charged, too. Then fired for incompetence.

What blows my mind is that there are pro-choice folks commenting on how sick this is, because he used scissors.

Can someone please tell me how it is more humane to use embryotomy scissors rather than regular scissors?

This maniac may have been murdering newborns for the last 18 years.

These infants were born in the U.S. - alive. That automatically makes them legal American citizens. They have a right to a lawyer and a fair trial. If non-citizen infants automatically get these rights, shouldn't Americans citizens be treated even better?

It is the same dementia which caused Nazi-supporting German companies to create Zyklon B cyanide as a “humane” means of killing.

Today’s leftists are every bit as a evil and twisted but also far more cowardly. The fact that we can’t seem to defeat these monsters leads me to believe that this is the end of the world as we knew it.

I read the grand jury report. It is horrifying as is the neglect of all the government agencies who should have known of this years ago. Interesting the comment that once “Casey had been replaced by Ridge, the Department of Health saw no reason to go regulate abortion clinics.” Yes, having a pro abortion governor can change things and Ridge was a Republican!
