Startling ruling in Gosnell abortion trial

PHILADELPHIA – The judge in the abortion murder trial for practitioner Kermit Gosnell has dismissed several of the counts in the case, including one of infanticide and three of murder.

The decision came today from Judge Jeffrey Minehart after Jack McMahon, Gosnell’s defense attorney, argued for the dismissals.

 

Also dropped were several counts of abuse of a corpse.

 

The trial, however, will continue on the rest of the counts that stem from the 72-year-old abortionist’s business in Philadelphia, the “Women’s Medical Center” that has been dubbed the “House of Horrors” for the events that occurred there.

He was accused of snipping the spinal cords of seven babies who were born alive at the facility, although witnesses have described that that same procedure was used to dispatch possibly hundreds of infants, as well as the drug overdose death of a patient.

 

Five other murder counts remain, and according to Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue, who has been monitoring the case, it is a “watershed moment.”

“The discovery of his horrific practices helped shed light on an abortion industry that has run amok without oversight or accountability for decades, and has prompted significant changes in abortion laws and attitudes toward enforcement in several states,” he told LifeNews.

 

Minehart dropped the infanticide charge regarding “Baby B,” a baby born in a toilet, as well as murder charges for “Baby A,” “Baby C” and “Baby G.”

 

“”The prosecution has to show malice, the fact that Dr. Gosnell acted with intentional disregard for the safety of the mother and treated them differently than he did with the others,” McMahon said. “The prosecution has failed to do that.”

McMahon also cited Pennsylvania’s “24-Week Law.”

 

“Yes, Dr. Gosnell did abortions past the 24-week limit, but not one of those who he’s accused of harming were past 24 weeks.”

    This is utterly horrific – snipping spinal cords on babies like Daniel? My God, this is horrific. He is a devil.

    • Devil indeed. Just hope he gets his due sentence and never allowed to ‘practice medicine’ again on anyone. It is a gruesome story and to think he gets consideration from the court and reduced charges!

      I have been involved in Pennsylvania justice practices since my son Ray was discovered by a neighbor – dead. Tox reports 1950 ml/L of a lethal poison in his blood. The coroner refuses to allow a death investigation. That is why I follow the unethical practices of coroners and document Ray’s case on http://www.denied-justice.com

      thank you for stopping by. God bless.

    • several charges have been dropped – there are more remaining, but being it is Pennsylvania history tells us that he will probably get a minor sentence if at all
