(AP) - A Philadelphia abortion doctor was found guilty Monday of first-degree murder and could face execution in the deaths of three babies who authorities say were delivered alive and then killed with scissors at his grimy clinic, in a case that became a flashpoint in the nation's debate over abortion.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, was cleared in the death of a fourth baby, who prosecutors say let out a soft whimper before he snipped its neck.
Gosnell was also found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the drug-overdose death of a patient who had undergone an abortion.
Gosnell appeared hopeful before the verdict and calm afterward; jurors and lawyers on both sides were more emotional.
The jury will return Tuesday to hear evidence on whether Gosnell should get the death penalty.
The liberals are scared to death regarding this case. I guess the jury decided that there was life after all.
