Horrible and cruel, yes. But certainly not illegal. People in this country, particularly women, have the legal right to do this to their babies. As for the death of the woman, late term abortions are a surgical procedure, and have the risks of such.
I don't quite understand what's driving the efforts to go after this guy, other than he's not part of some group of physicians and is getting muscled out of the death business. Perhaps he wasn't charging enough? That would be my guess.
It ain't "legal," and it ain't "right."
"We can never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was "legal" and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was "illegal.""

“Sounds to me like he did nothing illegal.”
From what I read, it was the death of a patient that brought the charges. Evidently some woman from Nepal was overdosed with anesthesia administered by some high school kid. I guess the late term abortions were performed on infants that were at least 8 months in the womb and certainly able to live on their own. That is certainly illegal. I just hope that this horror will force legislators to reconsider abortion as a legal right and make it a crime once again.
Are you serious? He did nothing illegal? These babies were born alive, and he killed them. What’s wrong with you? In fact, these babies are alive from the moment of conception.
I get sick at my stomach at the bleeding hearts who get all hyped up over waterboarding a terrorist, but, sanction the killing of the innocent unborn.
I’d hate to face God with this crime on my hands. Maybe abortion is legal, but, its still murder in God’s eyes.
In Jeremiah 1:1, God says, before you were formed in the womb, I knew you. What does this tell you? God is the giver of life.
God help those who commit such atrocities.
I predict we're going to find out about that, and it will be good for us to know, one way or the other.
Rick Santorum once asked Nancy Pelosi when a baby had a right to live. Could a baby be legally killed if only her foot were inside the birth canal? ... etc. Pelosi refused to answer the question. Wesley Clark said once that a baby was a person when the mother decided the baby was wanted. I believe Barbara Boxer once said it was when the baby was brought home from the hospital.
It's time to bring America face-to-face with what that means. Can a living, viable, healthy baby be killed after birth for no reason except that her mother wants her dead?
If so, what logical, rational reason can be given to limit the killing to within a few hours after birth? Why not permit parents to do away with obstreperous two-year-olds? Why not permit parents to kill their children until they start kindergarten (after that, the government has an investment in their education, and we wouldn't want to throw that away, would we?) ??
If, on the other hand, killing that baby is murder, then it's just as much murder to kill her a few moments before birth when she's in the womb.
It's fascinating to watch the Left try to run away from from the implications of what they support, like cockroaches in a sudden bright light.
These weren’t partial-birth abortions nor were the babies survivors of botched abortions...the 7 charges were actual FULL deliveries, which is not covered by “abortion rights”... magritte
