Skip to comments.How 'house of horrors' abortion doctor built up a multi-million dollar property empire
Posted on 05/13/2013 2:58:58 PM PDT by Albion Wilde
Dr Kermit Gosnell earned more than $1.8 million a year from abortions He bought an 18ft sailboat and at least nine properties in four states While he earned up to $15,000 a week, his staff were on minimum wage Authorities are now looking for more properties after he failed to reveal all of his assets
Investigators are looking to see if he owns further properties... after he refused to respond to a court order telling him to reveal all his assets... Gosnell's assets are estimated to be worth several million dollars and all paid for from the 15 abortions a day he carried out for the past 30 years.
Women were charged from $450 up to $1850 ...with the cost based on how far along the mother was. He also earned hundreds of thousands from Oxycontin. Prosecutors said he was among the top three suppliers in the state. Gosnell raked in as much as $30,000 a week but paid his untrained staff minimum wages, according to Grand Jury indictment.

He killed 5,000 babies per year.
True low life. Er....no-life.
Baby killer and dope dealer
How long before Obama or some University gives him a 6-figure job?
I’m watching the FOX coverage of this on Special Report and watched The Five....
Not ONE linked this butcher to being able to do this stuff to Obozo’s vote, not “present” but in the affirmative to allow babies that survive an abortion to be SNIPPED!!!
Stick this to the jug-eared Jesus....this is HIS legacy!
If Obama had a son.......
If Obama had a wicked Uncle Kermit...
I agree with you that the parallels are there; but Gosnell was snippin’ long before jug-ears was trippin’.
The property this guy will see is the prison yard..
Do abortionists pay taxes?
I know one who legally finagled his abortion business saying it was a church, so he didn't have to pay taxes and he got away with it.
Looks like Gosnell could probably be hit with some sort of RICO thing.
An 18ft sailboat? The horror..
But JugEars would make it LEGAL for any doctor to take a baby who is swimming for its life in the toilet and snip it’s spinal cord... ‘cause you shouldn’t be punished with a baby, dontchaknow.....
An 18’ sailboat is hardly evidence of livin’ large.
The pics at link are shocking. They show (one of) the horror chamber(s), the mug shots and (applicable) charges against his staff, pics of two of his patients, as well as the property pics.
Well, at least under ObamaCare, this will be rectified in the future. He would not be able to have such generous billings.
If you read the article, you will find that he failed to use or maintain either the sailboat or the house at the shore, not even to mention the decrepit conditions at the actual house of horrors where he killed women and children with impunity, unmolested by the local Democrat authorities, for more than 30 years.
I see that you, too, failed to read the article, in which his seeming to have obtained the boat only to park it in his driveway for show was sneered at by his neighbors, who disliked him intensely and resented the disgraceful state of his property.
Not that the sailboat is the point here. Are you saying that his inadequate sailboatage somehow nullifies any of the women and children he murdered or the huge amounts of cash he squirreled away for killing them?
I disagree. No matter how hard the devil will try to turn this inside out, as he can always be expected to do, there can be no excuse for retreating. Gosnell was not targeted by Christians or any other stripe of pro-life activists, after all. His downfall came as a result of unpaid taxes. In the investigation, the revenuers found abortion conditions so overwhelmingly horrible that even they felt compelled to force an investigation.
If there were any justice, the Commonwealth would donate any leftovers after the expense of the trials to a pro-life charity, or at least split it equally with pro-life and abortion charities; a gal can dream.
The wages of sin.
Does no one read the article any more? Many, if not most, of the women gave him cash to keep their abortion secret. Proving once again that although it is legal, even the women enjoying their "right" to an abortion feel ashamed and guilty.
I misspoke earlier; Gosnell was targeted for investigation not for tax evasion, but by the drug authorities, for overprescribing Oxycontin and other infractions.
Liberal kooks & MSM worship him yet Christians are called crazy for believing in the real Jesus.
Reading the article.... it appears Gosnell’s homes were as crudy as his clinic. They tore down his beach house after he sold it for legal fees, apparently beyond repair and pretty nasty inside.
So the guy’s home’s were just a filthy as his clinics.
Neighbors mentione d how mean he was...nobody cared for him...nor cared to get to know him for his temperment.
I wasn’t surprised they had to tear down his beach home because it was so disgusting. This guy was a real crud!
The family likely has it already...a lot was paid under the table.... I’m certain he took care of family “hidding” his assets beforehand...so much of it is untraceable.
I can’t lay claim to this term...
I ripped it off from someone else on FR...
Loved it the minute I saw it!
That is blood money and nothing good will come of it.
I never dreamed anyone who could do what he did would have a family of his own. Chilling. He had children of his own yet thrived probably in feeding his sick mind, and we know he thrived financially. Hard to wrap my head around him fathering, and raising his own children...how could he not see a connection between his children as babies and the babies he murdered?
Gosnell is a psychopath and they do have children. But, their children are really like property that they own. Any fathering that he gives them comes from a shallowness that the kids can never explain.
You read the article! Yay! although it was disgusting and disgraceful. God help us; I do believe good will come of this — a breakdown of the stranglehold leftists have over abortion provision, and the hands-off attitude of authorities unwilling to inspect these sites due to political pressure — that, too, will crumble. Surely if this story continues to get out there, it will discourage young girls from considering this option. Please, God, don’t let these innocents die in vain.
I generally do read the articles of interest to me. There’s often ‘other’ information , which may not seem significant at the time, important to know as a story develops and information comes together.
I haven’t quite grasped why the woman who went to Gosnells clinic could remain there after seeing the condition of the place????..... Seeing cat droppings, vomit and blood around...the condition of the rooms and medical furniture rusted and torn. Heck even the outside of the building left much to be desired. That alone would tell anyone this was not going to go well.
I think the man had a hatred for poor woman of his kind. It was easy for him to do this and make plenty money as he went. He had a sadistic nature I believe. Known for being “mean”. I’d almost bet his kids were abused in one form or another.
I guess it's a Philly thing, especially the poorer women who went to that abortion mill. It's a beautiful city downtown, but is ringed by oil refineries and crisscrossed by heavy traffic and noise even in the residential streets; you can clean your windowsills at noon and they will have a coat of fine black dust by 1:00. It's one of the oldest cities in the U.S. with old housing in the major part. People get conditioned to a certain degree of grime and funkiness.
People are very friendly in Philly, but also separate themselves into ethnic neighborhoods with defined boundaries and varying standards of housekeeping. That area of Lancaster Avenue adjoins a downscale African-American business corridor, the kind of place with payday loans, dank second-hand stores and owner-operated fried chicken stands, and funky is the standard in that section, with bars on most of the windows.
If you are poor to begin with, not accustomed to first class medical care, and doing something you are scared, ashamed and/or desperate about, broken old furniture is not much of a stretch. When people are ashamed or degraded to begin with, bad surroundings are a sort of self-flagellation.
This or some other article about this travesty also pointed out that he kept a separate, cleaner waiting room for white patients -- presumably he feared that they would be more likely to complain to authorities or judge him according to race, which he may have had hangups about, being a "person of freckle" with very light skin but African features -- in the era when he grew up, a constant irony about skin color privilege vs. more indelible perceptions of race/culture.
I glean that patients were drugged and sent to the waiting room until the "delivery of the products of conception" was imminent; and that the overdrugging was so egregious that some women rushed to the toilet and delivered too rapidly. Others were drugged to insensibility.
The whole thing is one of the most "Sweeney Todd" episodes in recent memory. God bless the souls of those innocent babies subjected to so much carelessness and pain where there should have been preparation, a loving home and welcoming arms. But how bourgeois of me to think so.
I had to go to Philly for a week of meetings, when living in Lancaster. I could not wait to get out of there! Went by train and then taxi to the Omni, each day, rather than stay in the city. It’s a very “dark” city.
You must have gone in fall or winter. My recollections of living there more than 30 years are very sunny, indeed. I loved walking up the Parkway to the Art Museum, biking along the River Drives, picnics in the parks, shopping in Wanamaker's or Strawbridges, eating in Chinatown, or just strolling around Center City, South Street, Penn Campus or South Philly. It was even fun in the snow. I miss it very much; but the political and social climates have changed, so that even if I went back, it would not be the same.
Well that was 30 years ago...it’s certainly not that now. But nice you have those memories. I think many have found memories of how it use to be....children today cannot say the same.
