Absolute depravity. I say the parents should be brought up on charges too. What sort of asinine parent decides this late in a pregnancy that they don’t want the baby?! I’ll tell you who, the same parents who throw their newborns in dumpsters. Just absolutely horrible; this is a true tragedy.
A Philadelphia abortion doctor has been charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a woman patient and seven babies that prosecutors say were born alive and then killed with scissors.
The charges against Dr. Kermit Gosnell follow a long grand jury investigation.
District Attorney Seth Williams said state regulators ignored complaints and failed to visit the clinic since 1993.
Williams said the women were subjected to squalid and barbaric conditions at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society, which was shut down last year.
Gosnell has been named in at least 10 malpractice suits, including one over the death of a woman who died of sepsis and a perforated uterus.
A local CBS station reported that Gosnell’s wife and eight other people also were under arrest.
It said the deaths occurred following illegal late-term abortions.
The broadcaster said warrants were served late Tuesday or early Wednesday and all the suspects were being held in jail.
It said four of the suspects were facing multiple murder counts.
In addition, Gosnell was the subject of a federal grand jury investigation relating to the illegal prescribing of prescription drugs, CBS said.
Some $240,000 in cash had been found when his house was searched, the station said, citing investigators.
It added that Gosnell had previously insisted he was innocent of any crimes and predicted he would be acquitted if he was charged.
I hope they all rot in jail.
