Gosnell worker testifies: Baby being ‘aborted’ ‘screamed…like a little alien’
Life Site News ^ | 4/8/2013 | Ben Johnson

Posted on 04/09/2013 4:45:03 AM PDT by IbJensen

PHILADELPHIA, April 8, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Former abortion worker Sherry West testified that she heard a baby “screaming” and “screeching” during an "abortion" that took place at Kermit Gosnell's “House of Horrors” abortion facility.

The proprietor, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, asked her to help him with something and directed her to another room. There an 18-to-24-inch baby, who did not yet have eyes, was lying in a clear glass pan, she recalled in horror. It was “screeching, making this noise” that “sounded like a little alien," she said. It “really freaked me out,” she said, causing her to leave the room.

Eyewitnesses report that West was clearly shaken by recalling the traumatic event during Gosnell's trial for third-degree murder in Philadelphia this morning.

Gosnell regularly killed babies by delivering them outside the womb, then “snipping” their spinal cords with a pair of scissors.

West, who began working for Gosnell “under the table” in 2007 after having a nervous breakdown, said she called the babies killed at the facility “specimens,” because the terminology made it “easier to deal with mentally.” West had been one of Gosnell's patients.

West testified that Gosnell asked the unqualified employee who administered the fatal dose of medication to 41-year-old immigrant Karnamaya Mongar to lie and say that Gosnell was responsible.

West told prosecutors today that she was trained by Gosnell to administer medication and insert IVs by other employees, including teenagers. She could not pronounce the name of a medication she administered, according to local media reports.

The Women's Medical Society, located at 3801 Lancaster Avenue in West Philadelphia, has been branded a “House of Horrors” for unsanitary conditions that included flea-infested cats defecating on recliners where post-abortive women recovered, unsterilized medical equipment transmitting STDs between patients, and jars of aborted fetal parts.

Many of the babies he killed were well beyond the state of Pennsylvania's 24-week limit. Former employee Kareema Cross testified that Gosnell joked one of the babies was big enough to “walk me to the bus stop.”

Gosnell is on trial for third-degree murder and faces the death penalty. His lawyer, Jack McMahon, has attempted to play the race card by denouncing the prosecution of Gosnell, who is black, as “elitist and racist” and “a prosecutorial lynching.”

West plead guilty to third-degree murder in October 2011, as well as to delivering drugs that resulted in death, conspiracy and participating in a corrupt organization.

She is testifying as part of a plea bargain. West could face 70-100 years in prison on those charges.

God may never forgive the United States of America for leading the world in the murder of innocent babies. Subsequent to Roe vs Wade the world followed our evil lead! Obama is all about murdering babies and using the central socialist government to neuter Christian dissent.

Amerca has permitted evil as a nation and many involved, including the complicit courts, Congress and state legislatures need to get measured for the rope that will fit around their necks then tied to a millstone.

Central government laws permitting the murder of babies was just a step in getting America to deny the existence of God. If we acknowledged His existence how could we permit this to continue?

This is chilling and disgusting. Of course the left doesn't want any of this to be public. They want to keep the concept of abortion antiseptic and without issues of conscience. If this were pushed into the wider public domain, there would be push-back from the left, calling it ‘sensationalism’ and/or political grandstanding. On the other hand, having Obama use grieving parents from Sandy Hook for his political theater is perfectly acceptable to them. Liberalism = hypocrisy, with very few exceptions.

18-to-24-inch baby, who did not yet have eyes,

***************************

What?

Ok, can’t comment on the screeching, my brain won’t allow me to process this image/moment.

However, how did a baby that 18 to 24 inches not have eyes yet? My daughters were between 20 and 24 inches at birth. Surely eyes develop before vocal cords and that size?

Just confused.

And again, cannot process what this woman heard. Nope. Nope. Nope.

Those that are in favor of abortion are also against the death penalty. Abortion is nothing more than a violent form of birth control. I’ve heard it said that abortion is good for the planet. Insane!

Third degree murder in PA is not eligible for the death penalty. The most he could be sentenced to is 20 years per count but they could be consecutive.

“... my daughters were between 20 and 24 inches at birth”.

Mine were 19 inches. I am thinking the “no eyes” part was because the baby was crying and the eyes were tightly shut. House of horror indeed.

Gosnell is just a typical specimen himself ~ of abortionists, abortion supporters and Democrat politicians.

They'd slip up on us and kills us in our beds if we didn't have locks on the door.

Feminazis will be following the trial. Feminazis love this kind of thing. To them, it’s just like abortion. Feminazis are obsessed with abortion. Try to take it away from them and they yell and scream.

BTW, abortion “workers” know damned well what they are doing. They can give it a nice name but they know. Later in life it will affect them.

Dear SargeK,

From memory, I recall that the third degree murder charge is for a woman who died under his “care,” but that the intentional, premeditated killing of the born babies is being prosecuted as first degree, capital murder.

18-24 inch long baby, that did not yet have eyes?

Anyone here who remembers the length of their children at birth, will know that’s a lie.

Could you imagine having an abortion by this fiend, then working there... then seeing and hearing that baby?

Shudder.

Lord have mercy, even though we deserve it less than anyone.

Honestly, the more I think about it, I think her mind made that baby’s eyes disappear. Maybe as a way of coping? The thing that makes us love humans and animals alike, are eyes. She wiped out his eyes to save her sanity. Although, not working there would have probably helped with that.

Full term babies are about twenty inches long, 24 inches would be huge, and they all have eyes unless they are afflicted with some dreadful deformity.

Perhaps this witness is so traumatized by what she has seen and done that her memories are faulty...but I would have a hard time discerning the truth of her statements if I were on the jury.

Oh my God! It was not screeching like an alien, he/she was crying like a baby. I am sick to my stomach and just want to cry. I would say “what have we become”, but I am afraid I already know the answer to that question.

I was thinking that she put forth a “justification” for the killing of the baby.. i.e. a deformity. In her mind, it relieves part of the “guilt”. The fact that she defined a newborn’s baby’s crying as “alien”... says a lot to me.

The USSR was the first nation to legalize abortion in the 1920s. We (the U.S.) were late to the game. Currently, Russia & China lead the world in the abortion rate, and I have read from several sources where 50,000 babies are killed every day in China. Here in the U.S., the daily death toll is 3,000 - the equivalent of a 9/11 every day. Where’s the outcry? We do not deserve God’s Mercy.

In 1917, Our Lord’s Blessed Mother appeared to three poor shephard children in Fatima, Portugal. She warned that Russia would spread her errors around the world. I believe that we are seeing that in numerous ways, abortion being one of them since it was first legal in the USSR.

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

“However, how did a baby that 18 to 24 inches not have eyes yet?”

If the baby really didn’t have eyes, then this defect could have been the reason for the abortion. Or maybe she simply exagerrated.

David French at NRO Corner:

As Mark Steyn notes, the MSM may not be covering the horror of the Kermit Gosnell trial, but the combination of the Gosnell trial and Planned Parenthood’s recent inadvertent truth-telling about its willingness to abort a baby born alive represent a one-two punch of reality that every pro-life advocate should remember.

Amidst this month’s arguments that cultural changes are “inevitable” and irresistible, the abortion industry’s constant setbacks — both in public opinion and in legislatures across the country — must frustrate and puzzle the sexual revolutionaries. As the saying goes, reality always gets a vote, and the reality of abortion is unspeakably brutal. The abortion industry thrives only by shielding the public from as much of that brutality as possible. Abortion advocates can scream “Todd Akin” all they want, but Todd Akin never killed a screaming, crying child. Kermit Gosnell did.

Every now and again even the most dedicated need to be reminded of the stakes of the battle they fight, and Gosnell and Planned Parenthood have helped stoke the motivations of the larger pro-life community. The abortion industry, born in racism and eugenics, thrives through diversion and deception. By contrast, an effective short tactical mission statement for the pro-life community would be simply this: Tell the truth — as often as you can, to as many audiences as you can.

So long as there exists a shred of respect for innocent life in this culture, reality will be the pro-life advocate’s best friend.

This is a story about a pure and simple soulless psychopath. Jeff Dahlmer has nothing on him.

It is amazing how humans can wrap their heads around mass murder. It is one degree of evil for an individual to go nuts and do this...it is a whole different degree with a whole society encourages and condones it.
