Victims say abortion doctor scarred them for life

He opened his Women's Medical Society at 38th Street and Lancaster Avenue in 1979. Although he was not certified as an obstetrician or gynecologist, he performed thousands of abortions over the years, "specializing" in illegal late-term abortions and killing hundreds of viable babies, the grand jury alleged.

But instead of using traditional abortion methods, Gosnell preferred to induce labor, according to the grand jury. That occasionally resulted in live births, a complication that the doctor would handle by stabbing scissors into the newborn's neck to sever its spinal cord, the grand jury charged.

Sounds very much like ‘back alley abortions’ with coat hangers.

Why do these misogynists always give their businesses names that imply they care about women's health, when their only purpose for existence is to abuse and exploit women and their babies?

If the accusations and indictments are true, then he is really nothing more than a sadistic serial killer. Not much difference at all between him and John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer or any of the others.

Except he probably received federal funding for his ‘clinic’ (aka torture chamber) and the others did not.

In a way, then, I suppose that makes him more like Joseph Mengele than Henry Lee Lucas.

The victims’ stories are horrifying.

Hard to imagine that his reputation for violence was not passed around in the neighborhood. But most of these young girls were desperate.

It would be interesting to know if his fees were paid by the patients/parents or Medicaid.

When abortion was illegal, the woman or her impregnator paid for the evil deed.
Thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court and citizens who don’t care about good and evil, we taxpayers have paid this butcher almost two million dollars a year to kill and mutilate these babies. Shame on us, who let these unspeakable horrors take place without a peep. There will be judgment.

Ever notice that if someone shoots people in a Safeway parking lot Tea Party members are to blame along with conservative politicians although the shooter had NOTHNG to do with either group.

Why is Planned Parenthood, NOW, Feminist Majority and “pro choice” pols not even asked about this house of horrors abomination?

I’ll bet that “choice” activists stood outside and “protected” this demon from sidewalk counselors.

Where are they today?

I guess I don’t see the difference between killing the babies inside the womb at 9:20AM or outside the womb at 10:20AM. Really, what’s the difference?

What this really shows is that people who “believe in the right to abort” know that its murder. They just don’t like to have to be confronted by the harsh reality of what they are doing.

The ONLY victims in this sad story are the dead babies.

I don't give a rat's behind about the mothers who chose to end their babies' lives.

Based on the article, a good number of young girls likely didn’t “choose”.

Since the clinic is legal, it comes down to he said/she said. When the family supports it, these forced abortions happen in silence.

There won’t be a single member of the MSM who will have the guts to write an op ed blaming Obama for promoting a culture of murder leading to this sort of atrocity.

Actually, I believe it is implied that Tea Party members and the like are somewhat to blame for this because the article (or one of the other many articles posted) suggests that the reason he wasn’t reported earlier was because the girls/women were young, poor, minorities. And everyone knows which parties are for and against the poor and the minorities, don’t they?

The holiest sacramental act of the Satanic Left.

are we supposed to be shocked or appalled about this or something?
This happens how many hundreds of times a day in America and in THIS case... we are supposed to be shocked?
what's the difference between grinding up a baby still inside it's mother and stabbing it to death once it's outside, neither practicing any sort of humanity?
I fail to see how this is any worse than a "normal" abortion other than it was apparently unclean and this doctor was particularly demented.

The end result is equally grisly and I don't see how anyone could possibly see that the "proper methods" are any less atrocious or evil.

Your comment is excellent and perhaps the reason for the public outrage is that, finally, the truth of this horrendous, evil practice is being described in all its muderous criminality. BY THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA no less.
