    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....

    ASHINGTON, D.C., April 5, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Twenty-one leaders in the pro-life and conservative movements have signed a statement denouncing national broadcast networks ABC, CBS, and NBC for failing to give any attention to the murder trial of Philadelphia “House of Horrors” abortionist Kermit Gosnell. The statement, written by L. Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center and signed by 20 other movement leaders, calls the media blackout on the two stories a “national disgrace.” The statement complains that in the three weeks since the Gosnell trial began, ABC, CBS, and NBC have not mentioned the case even once on...

    He brutally killed unborn babies by jamming medical scissors in the back of their necks, but the major network television stations have engaged in a blackout of coverage of his murder trial. To response, 20 prominent leaders of the conservative movement have joined Media Research Center President Brent Bozell in demanding the broadcast networks stop censoring coverage. They are also upset at the lack of coverage of the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates lobbyist who testified in favor of allowing the killing of children who survive botched abortions. MRC’s Culture and Media Institute finds that ABC, CBS, and NBC...

    The liberal media know an abortion outrage when they hear it. Sadly, they only seem to hear them from the mouths of Republican candidates, and it only takes a statement to outrage the press. Can't they find a single abortion outrage inside an abortion clinic? Such is their radicalism that nothing, absolutely nothing regarding this gruesome procedure raises their eyebrows, never mind their ire. One emerging story proves the degree to which our "objective" media's views on abortion are dogmatic and extreme. Abortionist Kermit Gosnell is on trial in Philadelphia, and not just for killing babies outside the womb,...

    Adrienne Moton wept this week as she recounted her role in the mass murder of at least 10 pre-born babies. The West Philadelphia medical assistant testified during the capital murder trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, owner of an abortion clinic in the supposed “City of Brotherly Love.” Moton told a jury that she snipped the spines of at least 10 babies, a heinous procedure even by abortion standards. She said she was ordered to do so by Gosnell, the abortion-rights equivalent of Josef Mengele. She also recalled taking a cell phone snapshot of one of the baby murder victims left...

    Not only did abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell snip the spines of babies he killed in his gruesome live-birth abortion process, an abortion clinic worker who worked for him admitted today she did too. Gosnell is charged with more than 30 criminal counts including the killing of seven newborn infants and a female patient in a botched abortion. Day one of the trial took place yesterday with opening statements and AP has more on an interesting revelation that came to light today. A medical assistant told a jury Tuesday that she snipped the spines of at least 10 babies during unorthodox...

    PHILADELPHIA, March 19, 2013 (LifeSiteNews) – Abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who ran the “House of Horrors” abortion clinic in West Philadelphia that was shut down after an FBI raid in 2010, faced the jury for the first time Monday in a case with high stakes: Gosnell faces the possibility of the death sentence if found guilty. Gosnell, 72, is facing capital murder charges for allegedly severing the spines of at least seven babies born alive at his filthy abortion center. He is also facing one additional count of third degree murder for the death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41, who sought an...

    PHILADELPHIA - (AP) -- A lawyer defending a Philadelphia abortion provider on murder charges accused officials of "an elitist, racist prosecution," as the death-penalty trial opened Monday. Lawyer Jack McMahon also accused city officials of "a prosecutorial lynching" of his client, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who is black. Gosnell, 72, is accused of running a rogue clinic that ignored the state ban on third-term abortions and 24-hour waiting periods. Prosecutors say he also maimed desperate, often poor women and teens by letting his untrained staff perform abortions and give anesthesia. And they say he got rich doing it, by performing a...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Prosecutors pursuing a Philadelphia abortion doctor charged with killing a patient and seven babies want the jury to hear evidence he allegedly ran a pill mill and let unskilled workers practice medicine, saying breaking the law was "standard operating procedure" for him. Dr. Kermit Gosnell's lawyer hopes to keep any such evidence out of his March murder trial. Gosnell, 71, first goes on trial next month on federal drug charges, which allege he distributed painkillers like candy at his busy West Philadelphia clinic. Proescutors say the deaths were no accident but the result of dangerous medical practices...

    November 14, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Yet another employee from Philadelphia’s infamous “House of Horrors” abortion clinic has pleaded guilty – this time to charges of participating in a corrupt organization, conspiracy and corruption of a minor, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. The corruption of a minor charge stems from the fact that Tina Baldwin had allowed her fifteen-year-old daughter to work at the facility, owned and operated by Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Gosnell is currently facing the death penalty for his role in the deaths of seven newborn infants, and one abortion client, Karnamaya Mongar, who died after a severely botched...

    An unlicensed doctor pleaded guilty on Thursday to third-degree murder in the deaths of two late-term babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors at a filthy Philadelphia abortion clinic. Steven Massof, 49, of Pittsburgh, pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree murder, murder conspiracy and other charges. Massof testified to a grand jury that he snipped the spines of more than 100 babies after seeing them breathe, move or show other signs of life. "Severing the spinal cords of moving, breathing babies outside their mothers' wombs was, according to Massof, 'standard procedure,'" the grand jury report centered...

Neither women had formal training to work at the clinic in Philadelphia run by Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Gosnell and nine employees, including his wife, were charged earlier this year after a gory grand jury report detailed the...

    HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania, March 3, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Because Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s victims were only minutes old, state prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty against the abortionist. The gruesome nature of Gosnell’s abortion business, which involved routine infanticide, sent shockwaves through national media outlets earlier this year, after state investigators stumbled upon the filthy facility. Gosnell, 70, and several of his accomplices at the inner city Women’s Medical Society clinic, were arrested in January. The abortionist was charged with the murder of one of his adult clients mid-abortion, in addition to seven newborns killed after failed abortions....

    All seven of the babies allegedly killed in late-term abortions by Kermit Gosnell at his squalid West Philly clinic will be counted in homicide figures as black males, even though only one of the babies has been identified as such. Lt. Ray Evers, a police spokesman, said that the Police Department will count the race of the remaining six fetuses as black because "most of the folks that came in to Gosnell's house of horrors were black," he said.

    PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, January 20, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A massive, photograph-laden Grand Jury Report released Wednesday has detailed the bone-chilling practices of a Philadelphia abortionist, who clinic workers testified had delivered “hundreds” of living, breathing newborn children before severing their spinal cords or slitting their necks to complete the abortions. Abortionist Kermit Gosnell was arrested Wednesday for eight counts of murder. One of the charges was for the botched-abortion death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar, a Nepalese refugee. The other seven were for children who police had discovered, by examining their remains, had been born alive and then killed. District Attorney R....

It's going to need more reason. He appears to be generally against abortion, but he is concerned that other irreligious people like himself might be turned off by anti-abortion signs that say Baptists for Life, Catholics for Life, Lutherans for Life.  He did not take a stand on the practice of showing gruesome pictures of cut-up little babies, but I suspect he thinks those turn off people,...

    PHILADELPHIA — For years, state health officials missed some unsettling patterns at the three-story brick abortion clinic on Lancaster Avenue. It was always open late, way past the time the pizza place next door closed at midnight. The women who emerged from it — often poor blacks and Hispanics — appeared dazed and in pain, and sometimes left in ambulances. The doctor who ran the clinic, Kermit Gosnell, had been sued at least 15 times for malpractice. Two women died while under his care. But the dangerous practices went unnoticed, except by the women who experienced them. They were discovered...

    PHILADELPHIA — A doctor whose abortion clinic was described as a filthy, foul-smelling “house of horrors” that was overlooked by regulators for years was charged Wednesday with murder, accused of delivering seven babies alive and then using scissors to kill them. Dr. Kermit Gosnell was also charged with murder in the death of a woman who suffered an overdose of painkillers while awaiting an abortion. In a nearly 300-page grand jury report filled with ghastly, stomach-turning detail, prosecutors said Pennsylvania regulators ignored complaints of barbaric conditions at Gosnell’s clinic, which catered to poor, immigrant and minority women in the city’s...

    There is little doubt that America has become a culture of death. Two of the most dangerous places to be are so-called women’s clinics and nursing homes. We do not value life that is not at its prime. So maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that a doctor was killing babies with scissors. Maybe we should be surprised he’s actually been arrested for it. On Wednesday an abortion doctor in West Philadelphia was charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors.
