Abortionist Kermit Gosnell Convicted of First-Degree Murder (Audio Clip)

May 13, 2013


Philadelphia, PA – Today, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortionist who ran the so-called “house of horrors,” was convicted by a  jury of his peers of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors. Gosnell was also found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for the 2009 drug-overdose of Karnamaya Mongar.

The jury found Gosnell guilty of murdering Babies A, C, and D, babies born alive and later killed. Baby A, who was photographed by a clinic employee, was nearly 30 weeks along when he was aborted. He was so big that Gosnell reported said the baby could “walk to the bus.” A second baby was alive for approximately 20 minutes before his neck was snipped. Baby D was born in a toilet. The Philadelphia jury acquitted Dr. Gosnell of the death of Baby E who reportedly whimpered before Gosnell snipped his spinal cord.

“For years, government officials and the media have looked the other way while babies born alive were executed in this house of horrors. Finally, a jury has looked evil in the eye and found Kermit Gosnell guilty of these atrocities to women and children,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel.

Audio clip “This is the face of abortion. What happens in Gosnell’s clinic is not an unusual situation. It happens around the country,” Staver said. “The fact is that this is human life. When we sacrifice human life in the womb under personal choice, personal gratification, or personal decisions, we ultimately cheapen the very image of God and the dignity of all humanity,” Staver said. “When we start having this abortion mentality, it’s no wonder that then life does not have any real meaning at any other stage. We need to come to a place in this country where we end this tragic history of abortion and bloodshed of these children and mothers.”
