With Dr. Gosnell appearing in court in a T-shirt and jeans, Judge Renee Cardwell Hughes cited testimony to a grand jury by some 62 witnesses about the conditions at the now-closed Women's Medical Society, where federal investigators say the illegal clinic’s practices left two women dead and routinely killed late-term babies by creating an incision in their necks and then severing their spines with scissors.

The videos, shot by the anti-abortion group Live Action and released online, apparently show Planned Parenthood clinic workers agreeing to provide “confidential” services for prostitutes as young as 14. The offer was made to a man and a woman posing on the tapes as a pimp and a prostitute.

In an interview with “America’s Morning News,” a radio talk-show affiliated with The Washington Times, Mr. Pence said the videos are “heartbreaking evidence employees of Planned Parenthood … facilitating, essentially, the abuse of a minor and sex-trafficking.

Instead of “illegal clinic’s practices” it should be “clinic’s illegal practices.”

Most of what they did there was perfectly legal.
