Skip to comments.DA: West Philadelphia Abortion Doc Killed Woman, 7 Infants
Posted on 01/19/2011 11:51:21 AM PST by cookcounty
An abortion doctor has been arrested and charged with the murder of a patient and seven live infants whose spines were severed with scissors at a West Philadelphia clinic that has been described as a house of horrors, officials said today.
District Attorney Seth Williams said the doctor, Kermit P. Gosnell, was charged following a grand jury investigation.
Gosnell, 69, lost his medical license last year after health officials determined his clinic posed "a clear danger to the public."
Gosnell was arrested this morning, officials said. He has maintained his innocence.
The seven infants were born alive in the 6th, 7th and 8th months of pregnancy and killed by severing their spinal cords with scissors, William said.

This is worse than Tucson.
TEN others charged in this case. READ the article, it’s utterly disgusting. Viable infants routinely murdered via scissors to the spinal chord.
“I wonder if this murder of 8 will get much attention in the Evening News.”
Nah. There’s no crosshairs.
NO INSPECTION since 1993!
Dems are all for tough regulation.......until it comes to abortion clinics, then it’s just “pass another scissors, please.”
And certainly not influenced by right-wing talk radio...
Only if they can find a way to blame Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh.
Gee, and I thought only conservatives were killers /sarc.
unreal,,, sick. Obama opposes this,,, he thinks you should just throw em into a supply closet until they die. Words fail,,,
In view of President Obama’s defense of abortion clinic practices going back to his position on SB200 in the Illinois Senate, is this event the result of his neglect of concerns about abortion?
And really,given his lack of seriousness about these issues, shouldn’t he not run in 2012?
Can’t wait to see the abortionists spin this. It ought to be a roller coaster ride of surreal logic that even Jared Loughner would have a hard time with.
I wonder if this murder of 8 will get much attention in the Evening News.
My thought exactly. Plus I wonder how many of the photos on Philly.com will ever get wider distribution. The Pro”choice” activists probably cannot believe that this is what abortion providers really are like. SCUM!
George Tiller’s twin?
I hope he gets life, and his practice is destroyed forever.
The seven infants were murdered moments after the same procedure could have been performed legally in the womb.
According to the legislation endorsed by Obama in Illinois, the abortionist could have tossed the crying babies into a laundry bin to expire.
and will now the corrupt bias media be over this for the next couple of weeks like they were for AZ?
Nah didn’t think so, it hurts their commmie agenda.
My search before posting yielded “no results”
Some of us may need a seminar.
Doctors sometimes develop a “God Complex” because they somewhat control both life and death.
Late term abortion is especially insidious because if the child was delivered normally it would be able to survive and in most cases life a normal life. How a doctor with their Hippocratic oath “do no harm” could participate in such things is beyond me.
If the Liberals and Progressives really want their late term abortions it should be mother who kills the child directly instead of putting that blood on the hands of the doctor. I am not endorsing this, but this would be a “poison pill” for the subject of abortion. If the mother had to snuff the life out of her child with her own hands it would lead to so much emotional trauma to the woman that most who did that would probably turn around and become very pro-life and carry that guilt with them for the rest of their life that they took a life. Instead a third party ie. The abortion doctor does it and the consequences and violence of the act are insulated from the mother having the abortion.
Abortion is a lot like any other liberal agenda in this way, taking away the consequences from the people who are “in trouble” and placing the responsibility onto someone else.
Sorry I screwed this up (looks like I’m not alone), can you adjust all these threads? It’s a pretty big story.
I don’t mean to be snarky (OK - I lie. I AM snarky)
And I don’t usually comment on repeat threads. But this story on the abortion doctor.... And the story on the Alabama Governor has been FReeped at least 6 times each today.
But you would not really know that unless you’ve been FReeping all day, or unless you use any other search functions besides FR search.
It’s well known that FR search functions suck. Me? I will use my browsers find feature (Control-F) or do a Google search.
When Obamacare pays good money for reproductive services, these unfortunate incidents won’t be necessary anymore.
Yes, in many ways it is. No heroes jumped in to stop this murdering man, and his victims came to him willingly, year after year.
And yet if some victim’s or close friend had turned on this practitioner surgeon of “Woman’s Health” and killed him dead as he moved to murder again — what would the headline have been?
I check FR Very frequently but this posting was the first time I saw this article. Sometimes news cannot be posted too often!
I’m not sure I see how this is terribly different than what that animal Tiller did for years.
"...none of the employees had any medical training, and one, a high school student, performed intravenous anesthesia with potentially lethal narcotics, Williams said."
Briefly, while Mr. Obama was serving in the Illinois state legislature, children who survived abortions at a Chicago area hospital affiliated with his church were being placed in a soiled utility room to die. Legislation was introduced to ensure basic human rights for these children. As chair of the Health & Human Services Committee, Mr. Obama voted against this legislation.
Audio of President Obama defending this type of action.
How is killing them after birth much different than killing them, say, 30 minutes earlier?
It should be no different legally.
hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
If you say, But we knew nothing about this,
does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who guards your life know it?
Will he not repay each person
according to what he has done?
Proverbs 24:11-12 NIV
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
Matthew 5:7 NASB
For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mothers womb.
I will give thanks to You,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
Psalm 139:13-16 NASB
Kudos to Philly for prosecuting.
He killed many, many more than seven infants. His wife was also involved and he saved his “big kills” for Sundays. Sick! I am sure that NARAL will hire a lawyer to defend him. After all, “Who gets to choose?” Their slogans ring even more hollow.
The hypocrisy of the left.
Let’s face it: we knew before 2008 that Obama was a heartless monster. He still is.
The abortionist is a hit man in a white jacket.
Yes, but were they “wanted” babies?
“This is worse than Tucson.”
***I wonder if this murder of 8 will get much attention in the Evening News.***
I was “the big story” on the Action News 6 o’clock local Philly news tonight.
My policy is to ignore thread Nazis. Thanks for posting. I just picked up on this story (I work at a job and cannot spend 24/7 cataloging threads and copying links for “already posted” gotchas).
Aside from that - I did hear this story reported as the lede on, I believe Fox Radio news at 5 o’clock.
Four hours and and only forty-three comments on a story about horrific murders in breaking news on a conservative website. Does this atrocity not bother my conservative brothers and sisters? Why would this make the evening news when WE dont seem to even care?
Right now, the Pennsylvania legislature and Governor should be burning the midnight oil, talking about the need for increased regulation and monitoring of the abortion industry and holding this monster out as their poster boy for reform. The fact that they're (most likely) not is why the democrat agenda moves forward while the right struggles to find their way out of the starting gate.
Some might call it exploiting the deaths of innocents. I call it an effort to ensure their deaths were not in vain.
There's a lot more there than just info on this murderer and his pill-mill/abortuary. I only scanned through about a third of it, but it's enough to make anyone sick! And the cretins in the government - like the DA - wonder why we don't trust them.
The kind of executioner that would otherwise thrive offing ‘burdens’ under the Leftists’ implementation of ‘health care’.
What scares me is that I have a feeling this is not the only abortionist in the country who does this. (I will dignify them with “Doctor”)
Gee, wonder if we’ll be getting any Federal investigations of Abortion death mills in the country?
