Abortionist brutally murdered ‘hundreds’ of living newborns: clinic worker
LifeSiteNews ^ | January 20, 2011 | Kathleen Gilbert

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, January 20, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A massive, photograph-laden Grand Jury Report released Wednesday has detailed the bone-chilling practices of a Philadelphia abortionist, who clinic workers testified had delivered “hundreds” of living, breathing newborn children before severing their spinal cords or slitting their necks to complete the abortions.

Abortionist Kermit Gosnell was arrested Wednesday for eight counts of murder. One of the charges was for the botched-abortion death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar, a Nepalese refugee. The other seven were for children who police had discovered, by examining their remains, had been born alive and then killed.

District Attorney R. Seth Williams released the 281-page report that was the basis for the murder charges against Gosnell and nine of his associates. Included in that report were photos of some of Gosnell’s victims.

In the report, the Grand Jury notes that several agencies and groups became aware of what has become known as Gosnell’s “shop of horrors,” but did nothing. They also provide extremely explicit descriptions of botched abortions, late-term abortions and infanticides rarely seen in court documents.

“Pennsylvania law requires physicians to provide customary care for living babies outside the womb. Gosnell chose instead to slit their necks and store their bodies in various household containers, as if they were trash,” stated the report.

The report provided detailed testimony from clinic staff who said that “killing large, late-term babies who had been observed breathing and moving was a regular occurrence” at the filthy clinic: one staffer said such events happened “hundreds” of times.

Another clinic worker, Tina Baldwin, told the jurors that Gosnell once joked about a baby that was writhing as he cut its neck: “that’s what you call a chicken with its head cut off.”

Why didn’t the clinic workers report this the first time it happened?

Isn’t it interesting how abortion and the funding for it seems targeted for certain demographics...

I often wonder how it is any different than a group like the Nazi’s targeting people.

It is amazing how little people realize just how they have been played by the Progressives and how they need abortions to increase because anyone born of the American experiment is a threat to their agenda.

You nailed it. That and the staffers were not part of a healthcare workers union. The answer from the system on this will be for doctors and clinic workers to be part of a union, and thus with standards.

The guy underpaid his staff. They didn't like it. They used cell phones to take pictures. The place was filthy and full of dead baby parts. If the sanitation workers union was required to be on staff, the working conditions and safety of the workers would have been tip-top.

Mark my words. What Obama says and votes on as a woman's right is not the issue at hand here.

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.

And the only reason a grand jury was on this was that the clinic worker took cellphone pictures. The state needed to be in a position of authority should those pictures go viral on the web.

The solution to that will be similar. Cell phones will be prohibited in the healthcare workplace. It will become a felony to have a cell phone in a healthcare providers office or treatment facility.

Targeting certain communities is exactly how Planned Parenthood got started.

They started with black communities.
However - in our area you can tell where their bread and butter is - just a half block stroll from the high schools.

That’s true - I forgot that unions were the answer to all our ills.

If someone were getting $50/hr to mop up the place we would never have heard a thing.

This is good! People are having to process this mess and come to a conclusion. The mess is a whole lot bigger than this doctor once you start using your noggin and not your emotions.

If people start using their heads and not let the court do it for them, the court may decide to rethink it's position.

Keep the thinking up folks. Brutal and honest reality, just what this horrible doctor ordered up.

If the death trains of Germany were run by Teamsters and the camps were run by SEIU, the jewish problem would have not existed. The missing persons would have merely been the result of overworked clerical staff with outdated record keeping equipment. With an adequate budget, such clerical errors would be resolved going forward.

The brainwashed, heartless, amoral, selfish mothers, witting or unwitting, are just as much to blame as the abortionists. They cannot be exempted from this evil.

How is that any different from partial birth abortion? How much of the child’s feet are “out?”

Several groups and agencies knew this was happening and did NOTHING. Absolutely NOTHING. Hypothetical question: I find out my neighbor has murdered someone and is planning to murder another person. If I don’t report this knowledge, aren’t I as legally responsible for the murder? I predict nothing will happen to the people in the agencies. I also predict the so called “doctor” will not get much of a sentence either... here on Earth. I think I know his sentence after he leaves our Earth. Just a thought.

I haven’t heard anything about this on the news. Seems to me it should be everywhere and PETA should be involved because this doctor actually likened a dying newborn to a chicken with it’s head cut off, which means the doctor must have witnessed at sometime in his life the beheading of a chicken. But then again we are awaiting the transfer of Gabby to Houston, so she can begin her rehabilitation, get back to Congress and vote to protect chickens and abortion doctors.

Just 5 % of the kind of publicity from the Tucson incident attaching this demon and the abortion industry would damage the “choice” side and likely prevent hundreds if not thousands of abortions of women who may decide to keep the baby vs. risk running into another guy like this.

Glad to see someone make a correlation between what happened here with what happened in Tucson.

It's interesting (but not surprising) that when a nut like Loughner loses it and kills some people with a gun that the left immediately blames the fact that guns are available, to call for "common sense" gun control, but when murders like this happen all you hear are crickets.

I think this case is a good opportunity to call for "common sense" abortion control. Sure, maybe most doctors are not breaking the law but since it's possible that they will, we should place some strict limits of abortions.

Perhaps we could start with a permit process for those seeking abortions. Maybe a three day waiting period. A background check. A national registry. Mandatory training classes for those seeking an abortion.

Later term abortionist Warren Hern, through his mouthpiece, Time magazine, is trying to spin that late term abortion is safe - period - and that this particular butcher did not use “safe methods”. Abortion is never safe for the baby, and the libtards can spin, spin, spin, this is murder, pure and simple. As for this being about “poverty”, libs like killing poor black babies because at heart they are eugenicists. The ugly secrets of the abortion industry have been exposed. I am sure that Slate magazine will also have a glowing piece on the glories of abortion.

So..... how does a "staffer" at such a place put up with it for so long without screaming bloody murder?

I read the full 200+ Grand Jury report. It tool me two days as it was so gruesome and painful to read that I had to stop frequently to get the images and anger out of my mind.
The discovery of his abortion atrocities was “accidental”, only discovered when they raided him for running a pill mill. Even though he had been reported for poor sanitary practices, untrained medical staff and the maiming and death of patients and different agencies and investigators were disturbed over things they had seen in the past, no connection was made by all the agencies who had some knowledge of his practices and what connection was made was conveniently overlooked or dropped by prosecutors.

I do not think hell has a place hot enough for this man.

And our Constitution requires more than once that “no PERSON shall be deprived of life without due process.”

Unfortunately for the babies, the Supreme Court has declared that though the fetus is human, it is not a person.

The leadership of the Republican party, is not conservative, they are more like a Progressive. Bob Dole was asked about the abortion plank in the Platform, he said he didn't care what was in it, no one pays any attention to it anyway.

Rush regularly talks about the intelligentsia in the Party always ragging on him about those nutty Christians, and their Anti-Abortion position.

These babies were born, the whole baby was out. They were breathing, at least one cried. One was seen flailing in a toilet where the mother had delivered it. The staff member said it looked like it was trying to swim. An assistant described playing with the little grasping hands of another for 20 minutes before the doctor KILLED it by severing its spinal column or slitting its throat.
I can’t remember which he did to this poor little one.

...the jurors said, “We think the reason no one acted is because the women in question were poor and of color, because the victims were infants without identities, and because the subject was the political football of abortion.”

I don’t know how anyone could read your post and not be brought to tears. Anyone who believes that they are “pro-choice” should read this heartbreaking story. I can’t imagine that even the hardest of hearts could be unaffected.

The link I saw had no graphic warning alert, which it definitely needed. It was the complete Grand Jury Report. It took me 2 days to read the report although I skipped paragraphs occasionally that I just could not stand to contemplate and there were pictures! Pictures of the babies! I would stop reading when I just could not fathom the evil and could not get the images out of my mind, but then would come back and read more.
I should have just skipped to the summary pages. I am sick that this man got away with these barbarous acts for all that time and that those babies suffered. Incredibly in the report it quotes an “abortion expert” who even admits that those babies experienced incredible pain.
I truly do not believe there is a place hot enough in hell for that monster.

I hear you! The pictures are so upsetting to me, it’s unbearable. The words alone are excruciating. I just don’t understand how this man was able to remain in business all this time. He seems inhuman. How did his staff tolerate this? I can’t imagine working in such a place, seeing this every day, taking money for what I did. It’s inconceivable.

And the most disgusting thing about all of this is that you hardly hear a word breathed about it on the news. It is hard to believe that there has been a news blackout about a story of massive brutal murder defined as such by all segments of society. This man is so disgusting as to cause all the mass murders of our times to pale in comparison and the media doesn't even consider it a story.

It is so unbelievable that our society on almost every level has because so hardened that they could possibly thing that this is not worth shock and horror and to be utterly abhorred. They go on and on and on about the killings of several people in Arizona but don't think that the death of precious innocent babies is worth hardly mentioning. The media is despicable and shameful beyond belief. I did not know that it had become this heartless. I am shocked and very dismayed.

Their own inspector saw the violations and did nothing.

I can't even guess at how many times I've heard of some clinic being closed down for shoddy bookkeeping, inappropriate prescribing of drugs, malpractice, unsanitary conditions, etc., and my first thought was that it was probably an abortion mill. It's always at the end of the story that they finally will say the name of the clinic, and it's always one of those deceptive names like "Women's Health Centers" that indicates what type of clinic it really is. I think that maybe once, the clinic was not an abortion mill.
