Teen intern at Gosnell clinic recalls hearing aborted fetus 'screeching'
Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | 04/12/2013 | Joseph A. Slobodzian

Posted on 04/12/2013 12:56:06 PM PDT by Kid Shelleen

At the time, it must have seemed like the ultimate work-study program.

Ashley Baldwin, a 15-year-old sophomore at University City High School who was thinking of becoming a doctor, got a job at one of the busiest clinics in West Philadelphia.

She was paid, and in no time went from answering phones to doing ultrasounds, administering intravenous medicine, and, ultimately, assisting in abortions performed by her mentor, Kermit Gosnell.

Now 22 and the mother of a 2-year-old son, Baldwin on Thursday told a Philadelphia Common Pleas Court jury hearing Gosnell's murder trial of her unusual hands-on medical apprenticeship.

Baldwin also told the jury about seeing at least five aborted babies moving, breathing, and, in one case, "screeching" after late-term procedures at the clinic at 3801 Lancaster Ave.

In Pennsylvania, abortions are legal up to 24 weeks of pregnancy. After that, medical experts say, a fetus is capable of living outside the womb.

"They looked just like regular babies," Baldwin said.

She’ll never be able to escape the sounds of that baby crying - the sounds will follow her to her grave. Horrible.

This story really disturbed me. I cannot unread what I’ve read. Wish I could. Lock Gosnell up for life. If those screeches didn’t cause him to rethink his ways, he is a cold-blooded murderer of the WORST kind.

A totally untrained teenager assisting in and performing medical procedures? The reason they had her do this is most likely that they abortion clinic was too niggardly to hire an educated, trained, and qualified person.

Ya think that maybe that's because they WERE regular babies?

Even when God turns his back, he is still there (Exodus 33:23). This is actually proof that America has turned its back on him when parents would let their teenage daughter work in an abortion clinic.

Historically; G-d has used His people's enemies to chastise or punish them...think North Korea, Russia, or China. America's 'chastisement' is LOOOOONG overdue...(although many would say the current administration is our 'chastisement'...)

I’m sorry, but if I was in that clinic and saw them trying to murder a “screeching” botched abortion, aka a living, breathing child, I’d lose it. People act like this case is unusual, but I bet these incidents happen in most if not all clinics that engage in late term abortion. This is murder. This is a real civil rights fight, unlike the fight for sodomite marriage. What civil right is more important than the right to life?!?!

I agree. It's not like Gosnell addressed the babies fetuses with any ethnic or homophobic slurs. /S

The work of the Holy Spirit has kept this place pretty decent. The lows we’ve reached, in my opinion, is a result of God turning away. He’s still at work in individual lives, but I there’s ample evidence that suggests He’s done with America. I hope I’m wrong.

No, I am right. What happened is terrible and evil, but it is not evidence of God turning his back on anybody or anything. Not to mention this man now faces justice and may forfeit his life for what he did.

Wasn’t that the premise of one of the main character in the “critically acclaimed” Cider House Rules. It’s life immitating art.
