Gosnell Found Guilty of Three Counts of Murder
The New York Times: Philadelphia Abortion Doctor Guilty of Murder in Late-Term Procedures, by Jon Hurdle & Trip Gabriel:
A doctor who was responsible for cutting the spines of babies after botched abortions was convicted Monday of three counts of first-degree murder in a case that became a sharp rallying cry for anti-abortion activists.
The doctor, Kermit Gosnell, 72, operated a clinic in West Philadelphia catering to poor women that prosecutors called a “house of horrors.”
The case turned on whether the late-term pregnancies Dr. Gosnell terminated resulted in live births. . . .
