Abortion Provider, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, operator of a clinic sponsored by the Women’s Medical Society in West Philadelphia, PA has been indicted by a grand jury and arrested for delivering 8 late-term babies alive at his clinic, severing their spines with scissors, and keeping their precious little bodies in refrigerators at his dirty, run-down office, next to his staff’s lunches. Tiny baby feet were discovered in specimen jars, as if they were a collection of specimens for Biology Class.
Prosecutors have charged this Americanized Josef Mengele with the death of seven babies born alive and with the 2009 death of a 41-year-old refugee after Gosnell botched her abortion procedure. Prosecutors say that they were dealing drugs at the clinic, also. Gosnell netted at least $1.8 million a year, most of it in cash, for his butchery. Prosecutors are not sure exactly how many babies died there. but they are believe that the count is in the hundreds.
According to the investigating grand jury:
(He) regularly and illegally delivered live, viable babies in the third trimester of pregnancy and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors.
The grand jury also said that while it believes Gosnell killed most of the babies he aborted after 24 weeks, it could not recommend murder charges for all of the cases:
In order to constitute murder, the act must involve a baby who was born alive.
After saying that, the grand jury also said that a lot of files were falsified or removed and possibly destroyed, making their investigation very difficult:
In a 300 page report that was released Wednesday, the grand jury stated that:
His entire practice showed nothing but a callous disdain for the lives of his patients.
The jury also blamed Pennsylvania state health and medical regulators. They said that the authorities had numerous opportunities to shut Gosnell down over the years but turned a deaf ear to complaint after complaint about the slaughterhouse.
Prosecutors reported that state officials refused to inspect the clinic despite repeated complaints from 1993 until January 2010. At that time,the Feds raided the clinic, investigating heavy painkiller distribution and shut it down.
Gosnell, when he was arraigned Thursday, claimed that he did not understand why he was being charged with eight counts of murder:.
I understand the one count, because a patient died, but I didn’t understand the seven counts.
Gosnell described himself as someone who wanted to serve the poor and minorities in the neighborhood where he grew up and raised his six children, who include a doctor, a college professor and two children who are still at home, during an interview with the Philadelphia Daily News after the clinic raid last year.
Gosnell aborted babies at his squalid excuse for a clinic from 8 p.m. until after midnight. This brave man only showed up after his pregnant patients were dilated, sedated and ready for the abortion procedure.
In the light of day, his untrained or undertrained staff ran the clinic and practiced medicine there, authorities said. They ranged from two supposed “doctors” who had finished medical school but had no licenses to Ashley Baldwin, the 15-year-old daughter of office manager Tina Baldwin, according to prosecutors. The teenager came after school to administer anesthesia and assist with abortions, even past midnight, the grand jury charged.
Gosnell is certified in family practice but never finished an obstetrics/gynecology residency. In the words of Joanne Pescatore, a lead prosecutor on the case:
He does not know how to do an abortion.
The grand jury report says that this butcher
…perforated the uteruses, bowels and cervixes of countless patients. He left fetal parts inside, ignored postoperative pain and bleeding and passed venereal diseases from one patient to the next through bloody and dirty instruments.
As if the abortions were not enough, Gosnell ranked third in the state for the number of prescriptions he wrote for OxyContin, the highly addictive narcotic painkiller. Per authorities, he left blank prescriptions for such drugs at his office and allowed staff to make them out to the cash-paying patients who streamed in during the day, when he wasn’t there.
Do you wonder how President Obama feels about this baby butcher? Here’s a clue:
President Barack Hussein Obama issued the following statement yesterday, concerning the event of the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade:
Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.
I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.
And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.
While the President was making this statement, I witnessed faculty and students at a Parochial school in Memphis, TN, prepare for the long bus ride up to Washington, DC in order to participate in the annual Pro-Life Rally there. May God bless them on their journey
Once again, this President, who was raised differently from the majority of Americans, holds fast to his view that a baby is not a sacred trust from God, but a punishment.
