Buckle your seatbelts; we’re headed to Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s house of horrors, a place that Pennsylvania prosecutors call a drug mill by day and an abortion mill by night; this macabre establishment, situated in the heart of the city of brotherly love, is enough to make even the strongest stomach turn.
Gosnell, a West Philadelphia abortion clinic doctor has been indicted by the Grand Jury on seven counts of murder for killing babies born alive, via late-term abortions, in his clinic. He is also charged in the 2009 death of a 41-year-old refugee who died as a result of a botched abortion performed there. His practice alone grossed him nearly $2 million dollars, much of it in cash, says prosecutors.
HuffPo : Philadelphia prosecutors believe Gosnell frequently delivered late-term babies alive at his clinic, then severed their spines with scissors, and often stored the fetal bodies – along with staff lunches – in refrigerators at the squalid facility. Tiny baby feet, prosecutors said, were discovered in specimen jars, lined up in a macabre collection.
We don’t know about you, but the idea of accidentally grabbing a foot instead of our tuna sandwich in the office refrigerator, is enough to make us never eat lunch again. This also begs the question, why didn’t any of Dr.Gosnell’s staff step in when they knew there were mutilated fetus parts in the refrigerator? Nine of Gosnell’s employees are also facing a variety of charges for their part in the clinic death chamber.
Gosnell, who still believes that he is performing a ‘valuable service’ to the impoverished and minority-laden West Philly neighborhoods, has also been accused of performing abortions that left women sterile, with venereal diseases, and in many cases with post-surgical injuries, including perforated cervixes, uteruses, and bowels, which almost resulting in death.
Gosnell was certified in family practice but had 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.”
Kermit Gosnell, an abortion doctor? Not quite. Another man, unfortunately, fit for the title of a true Savage Predator, however? Absolutely.
