Philly Abortionist Guilty in Three Babies' Deaths

Philly Abortionist Guilty in Three Babies' Deaths

(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.

    I’m a liberal, I’m not scared. This man murdered children born alive. That is not abortion. Two different things. No, I’ve never had an abortion. Instead, I elected to have all five of my children, but there should be a choice and not up to others who do not live the woman’s life or are the doctor who gives them a safe choice.

      Why were not the women who wanted the abortions and arranged to have them done with this doctor not also arrested and convicted for killing their babies?

        It would be illegal for their identities to be released, patient confidentiality laws, wouldn’t it? Regardless, they apparently took the doctors word that they were as far as they were, and he alledgedly lied in some cases, stating they were not as far along as they really were.

        Awesome question! Truly it is. Not that I think any woman should go to prison for this decision which is hers and hers alone, but, if they will allow their live child to be killed after being born, how is that any different from the hundreds of people who go to prison all the time for being there and not calling the police when another commits murder? Innocent bystander? Less likely than the other convictions, I must say.

      It’s called infanticide… It has a lot to do with abortion. In cases of a botched abortion meaning the baby is still alive …. I guess then Infanticide (or infant homicide) is the intentional killing of infants. Neonaticide, killing within 24 hours of a child’s birth, is most commonly done by the mother whereas infanticide of a child more than one day old is slightly more likely to be committed by the father.1

      In many past societies, certain forms of infanticide were considered permissible. In some countries, female infanticide is more common than the killing of male offspring, due to sex-selective infanticide.

    I think the “woman has the rights regarding her body” argument is stupid, just like the “born gay, not a choice” argument. These are short-term gain arguments that make no long-term headway.
    Yes, Brn. as Robo says, libs are not afraid. Both sides are excited to make their cases over this one.

      Right. When boys reach the age of 8 to decide whether they want to be gay or not, in spite of research that shows later children of mothers who expose their boy to less testosterone tend to create gays, the boys can decide not to do what they’re feeling from hormones and live the rest of their lives faking straight. Michelle Bachman and her husband have all the truth staright from God.

        I’m sure you’ve heard my argument before: why the Hell should people suffer if they do decide on an orientation? What if you’re born 50-50, perfectly bi, and any partner you have has a large element of choice? Why shouldn’t people be free to choose, why do they lose rights if they do choose? Gays opt for the “born gay” argument, we all lose the right to choose.

            do you “choose life” in all situations? War? Poverty? Medical care?

    It amazes me when Gosnell was facing the death penalty he suddenly became pro life.

      just as ironic as every pro-lifer who doesn’t mind the death penalty.

    The man is a doctor by only the most twisted definition of the title; none of his staff were licensed medical practitioners.

    Wake up morons…funny. Abortions are legal and we still got this. You should have stopped at the first two sentences and you would have made a valid point. Morons, indead.

    I don’t want to take away their rights. Abortion= one dead one injured. If that’s how they want to live…. fine with me. But …but .. but Mr. Robama, can we at least have some control over these abortion clinics… You guys are into regulations … why don’t we regulate these death factories?
