Dr. Gosnell is charged with the horrific murder of 7 babies born alive in his shabby abortion clinic in Philadelphia.
New York Times columnist, Jon Hurdle writes:
… prosecutors charged that a doctor who operated a women’s health clinic here killed seven viable fetuses by plunging scissors into their necks and “snipping” their spinal cords and was also responsible for the death of a pregnant woman in his care.
Further in Mr. Hurdle’s NYT piece:
One of the prosecutors, Joanne Pescatore, an assistant district attorney, told the court that Dr. Gosnell routinely performed illegal late-term abortions, killing the seven fetuses in operations that would have caused the infants pain.
“If the baby is alive and you don’t want it to be, that doesn’t mean you have the right to take a pair of scissors and plunge it into the baby’s neck,” Ms. Pescatore told the jury during opening arguments of a trial that is expected to continue for four to six weeks.
CBS news correspondant, Elaine Quijano, reported:
Gosnell’s abortion facility “has been described as house of horrors.” She also reported that an “adult victim … 41-year-old Carnamaya Mongar … died in 2009 after receiving an overdose of anesthesia…. Photos from inside the clinic, visited mostly by minority and immigrant women, show unsanitary, squalid conditions with jars and bags of aborted fetuses.”
Of course Dr. Gosnell’s lawyer described the abortionist as “dedicated to treating the poor” and had the gall to suggest that “it’s an elitist, racist prosecution,” Mr. McMahon said. “This black man is being taken because of who he is and where he works.”
Why isn’t this on every network front and center?
