Kermit Gosnellís Wife Gets 7 Months in Prison for House of Horrors Role

Pearl Gosnell, the wife of abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell, will spend anywhere from seven to 23 months in prison for her role in the House of Horrors abortion clinic.

Pearl Gosnell was convicted on charges of racketeering and performing illegal abortion but saw her sentenced reduced after spending two years under house arrest. Pearl’s children had asked the judge, according to local reports in court, to spare her prison time.

Gosnell’s sister-in-law was sentenced in court yesterday for her role in the House of Horrors abortion clinic that eventually resulted in Gosnell’s conviction on multiple murder counts. Like other Gosnell staffers and family members, Elizabeth Hampton agreed to cooperate with prosecutors to testify against Gosnell in exchange for a significantly lighter sentence.

According to local reporters on Twitter:

Gosnell’s wife Pearl pleaded guilty to assisting her husband at his Philadelphia abortion center where he killed a woman in a botched abortion and has killed hundreds of babies in abortion-infanticides. Pearl Gosnell was considering a plea deal similar to the one several of Gosnell’s former abortion center employees have made where they have pleaded guilty to receive a lesser sentence in exchange for testifying against Gosnell.

Pearl also worked at the abortion center Gosnell ran that had him kill and injure women in failed abortions and kill perhaps hundreds of babies in grisly infanticides by birthing them and “snipping” their spinal cords. She worked at the Women’s Medical Society abortion business as a full-time medical assistant from 1982 until she married Kermit Gosnell in 1990, when she switched to only working on Sundays.

At that time, the abortion business was officially closed but would do its latest-term abortions possible. The grand jury report indicates Pearl Gosnell testified that she alone helped Kermit do abortions on Sundays when she would “help do the instruments” in the operating room despite no medical training.

Wish she’d received a longer sentence, but it’s more than I expected...

Remember the sabbath and keep it bloody with the baby sacrifices.

I thought “All in the Family” was an old show. Never mind.

A joke of a sentence for an accomplice to mass murder.

One who lived high on the hog for decades from the profits of their heinous crimes against humanity.

She has already "served" 28 months, mostly in "home confinement". So this means she walks immediately with "time served".
