Philadelphia, PA -- A local judge has ruled that embattled abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell -- who has gained national notoriety for the shoddy abortion business he ran -- can't sell his assets to avoid a civil lawsuit.

Kermit Gosnell's $984K Brigantine summer house by the bay, with two decks and a boat dock.
EXCERPT How many severed baby spines does it take to pay for a $984,000 shore house? How many severed infant feet is a boat worth? And what part of Kermit Gosnell's clinic paid to keep his mistress, 41 years younger, on the payroll?
According to the grand jury's report, it's estimated that Gosnell, 69, made almost $1.8 million each year in abortions alone - and most of it was cash from desperate, poor women. That figure does not account for any of the money he took in from allegedly selling illegal prescriptions to drug addicts in his community, including his notable distinction of being one of the top three prescribers of OxyContin in Pennsylvania, something federal authorities continue to investigate.
But when brought before a judge to explain why he and his wife, Pearl, had not hired attorneys, Gosnell claimed to be broke.The judge didn't buy it and refused to appoint public defenders for the couple.
When investigators searched Gosnell's massive, three-story brick home at 32nd Street and Mantua Avenue, they discovered $240,000 in cash and a gun in a filing cabinet in his 12-year-old daughter's bedroom, according to the grand jury report. Aside from hiding their profits in their little girl's closet, Gosnell and his wife also invested in real estate. Together, they own as many as 17 properties, according to published reports; prosecutors said they know of at least seven. More at phillynews.com

A raid on Gosnell's chamber of horrors turned up blood on the floor and parts of aborted fetuses displayed in jars. "People were practicing without a license. A non-licensed person was administering drugs. The conditions were horrific, uncleanly, just abysmal," a board spokeswoman told ABC News.
Prosecutors believe Gosnell's Philadelphia abortion clinic frequently delivered late-term babies alive. The Philadelphia abortionist then severed their spines with scissors. The fetal bodies, along with staff lunches were stored in refrigerators at the filthy Philadelphia facility. Tiny baby feet, prosecutors said, were discovered in specimen jars, lined up in a macabre collection. (Excerpt) Read more at catholic.org ...
I’m glad that a monstrous crime like abortion occurs in a filthy and disgusting environment. At least it’s honest. The appearance of filth and degradation matches the reality of bloody slaughter of the innocent.
He should be eviscerated, then drawn and quartered. And if he's still sucking air after that, take a Sledge Hammer to his skull.
When finally dead, feed his remains to pack of rats at the local trash dump.
This is really beyond belief. Such evil is impossible to comprehend.
To perform the horrendous acts that he did, this sub-human savage cannot presume to have membership in the civilized human race.
Agreed. I just don’t think that the average person can do anything but recoil at this monster and what he has done.
