Gruesome Gosnell summary

I have posted several times about gruesome Gosnell and his Philly butcher shop. There are a few more articles Pepperhawk Farm forwarded that really deserve a look. So I’ll post them with minimal editorializing. Well, I said minimal, that’s open for interpretation. The subject stirs me to the core.

Now we’re hearing the judge threw out counts against him as it shifted to the defense this week. I can’t imagine the real reason, as if it wasn’t proved they were alive, when Gosnell’s whole pupose to to keep his conspiracy of death behind the filthy walls of his clinic. And he put a lot of effort into that. Some of the ‘lowlights’ are:

Death Doc Kermit Gosnell’s Silent Co-Conspirators

Michelle Malkin

Planned Parenthood now says it’s “appalled” by the Philadelphia house of horrors run by accused serial baby-killer and pregnant-mom murderer Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Bull.

The appalling inaction of the nation’s largest abortion provider, along with countless other clinics and “pro-choice” groups in the know, speaks far louder than their belatedly self-serving words.
/…
As I first noted in my column and on my blog when the scissors-wielding sadist was arrested in January 2011, the murders committed under the banner of “choice” were ignored for four decades by abortion advocates. The Philadelphia grand jury report, now amplified by trial testimony, outlined the systematic execution of hundreds of healthy, living, breathing, squirming viable babies. The panel concluded that the “vast majority of the babies he aborted” were more than 24 weeks old.

Gosnell joked that one murdered baby was so big, the child “could walk around with me.”

How to Murder the Innocent, Defenseless, and Undefended—and Make Big Bucks Doing It!

By Jim ONeill CFP
Monday, April 15, 2013 (excerpts)

As we near the end of this article I might mention that the Philadelphia D.A. estimates that Dr. Gosnell made between $10,000 to $15,000 a day from his abortion mill (that does not include the money he made from the illegal sale of prescription drugs, which was considerable, but does not concern us here). And before anyone leaps to his defense as a “champion of women’s rights,” I suggest you look over the D.A.‘s report in that regard. For example:

“One woman…was left lying in place for hours after Gosnell tore her cervix and colon while trying, unsuccessfully, to extract the fetus. Relatives who came to pick her up were refused entry into the building; they had to threaten to call the police. They eventually found her inside, bleeding and incoherent, and transported her to the hospital, where doctors had to remove almost half a foot of her intestines.” — [**THAT should prevent anyone from ever using the prefix Doctor on Gosnell ]
/…
I will conclude with a sobering thought. The police originally raided Dr. Gosnell’s “House of Horrors” because he was overprescribing Oxycontin—not because he was murdering infants. One wonders how many other “Dr. Gosnell’s” there are spread across the country, flying under the radar—how many other “Houses of Horror” funded by our taxpayer dollars?

Why Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s Trial Should Be a Front-Page Story

The dead babies. The exploited women. The racism. The numerous governmental failures. It is thoroughly newsworthy.

Conor Friedersdorf – The Atlantic
Apr 12 2013

On February 18, 2010, the FBI raided the “Women’s Medical Society,” entering its offices about 8:30 p.m. Agents expected to find evidence that it was illegally selling prescription drugs. On entering, they quickly realized something else was amiss.

In the grand jury report’s telling, “There was blood on the floor. A stench of urine filled the air. A flea-infested cat was wandering through the facility, and there were cat feces on the stairs. Semi-conscious women scheduled for abortions were moaning in the waiting room or the recovery room, where they sat on dirty recliners covered with blood-stained blankets. All the women had been sedated by unlicensed staff.” Authorities had also learned about the patient that died at the facility several months prior.

Philadelphia Abortion Doctor Is Cleared on Some Counts

By JON HURDLE-NYT
Published: April 23, 2013

PHILADELPHIA — A Pennsylvania judge on Tuesday threw out three of seven murder charges against a Philadelphia doctor charged with killing viable fetuses while performing abortions.

The judge, Jeffrey P. Minehart of Common Pleas Court here, granted motions for acquittal on the charges against the physician, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who ran the Women’s Medical Center, a West Philadelphia abortion clinic.

Judge Minehart also granted a motion for acquittal in five charges of abuse of corpse against Dr. Gosnell, who according to prosecutors killed fetuses that were alive after they were aborted by plunging scissors into their necks. Dr. Gosnell, 72, was also acquitted on one charge of infanticide.

The judge gave no reason for his decision, which came on the fifth week of the trial and preceded the start of defense arguments, which had been scheduled to begin on Tuesday afternoon but are now expected to start Wednesday.

MSNBC Finally Covers Gosnell Trial in Primetime Five Weeks After it Began

By Noel Sheppard | April 24, 2013 |

The murder trial of abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell began on March 18.

On April 23, more than five weeks after it started, the folks at the so-called “news network” MSNBC decided it was time they reported it in primetime.

Hardball‘s Chris Matthews surprisingly ended the blackout Tuesday:

CHRIS MATTHEWS: In Philadelphia right now, the trial of an abortion doctor charged with the murder of babies the prosecutors say were born alive is generating national headlines. Of course, it was page one of today’s USA Today with the headline “Gruesome Testimony Renews Debate Over Abortion.”

Well, Im not sure about that, but it is gruesome testimony. A grand jury report released in 2011 called the clinic a house of horrors. But the bottom line remains this is a murder case. Let’s keep our heads around that.

Originally, Dr. Kermit Goswell — or Gosnell was charged with seven counts of first-degree murder for killing babies that were allegedly alive, born alive and viable. Well, today, a judge threw out three of the seven murder charges. The judge did not explain his reasoning. But reports have indicated he did not hear sufficient evidence that the three babies he took out were actually born viable and then killed.

“Well, I’m not sure about that.”

What Matthews obviously meant was that he’s not sure this renews debate over abortion. Of course, that’s why his network and virtually all of the liberal media chose to boycott this story because they were indeed afraid it would renew the debate.

Also of note was MSNBC ending its primetime blackout on the day the judge reduced the charges on Gosnell. Makes you think that if he’s found innocent the media will gleefully report that.

Gruesome testimony renews debate over abortion

Rick Hampson, USA TODAY April 22, 2013

A third witness recalled how, as ordered, she used surgical scissors to snip the spine of an aborted fetus she’d found in a toilet, its arm still moving. “I did it once, and I didn’t do it again,” she said. “…it gave me the creeps.”

The creeps are an occupational hazard for jurors in the murder trial of Kermit Gosnell, accused of running a clinic where seven babies were allegedly killed after botched abortions and an adult patient was given a fatal overdose of Demerol.

Abortion opponents hope that the horrifying crimes attributed to this one defendant can shift the balance of power in an abortion debate that’s been deadlocked for decades.

Gosnell Defense rests in Philidelphia Abortion Case

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia abortion provider won’t testify or call witnesses at his capital murder trial, leaving jurors to weigh five weeks of prosecution evidence.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, is charged with killing four babies allegedly born alive at a clinic that authorities have described as filthy. He is also charged in the 2009 overdose death of a 41-year-old refugee who died just months after coming to the U.S.

Gosnell’s defense rested Wednesday without calling a witness. The jury is expected to hear closing arguments on Monday.

    Bull, I’d like to hit “like” for this post, but I’m just too disgusted by the Bastard Butcher. So the judge decided to just throw some counts out the window eh? Judge is probably the great grandson of Margaret Sanger and is doing his best to help get the bastard off scott-free.

    Planned Slaughterhouse is only raising a stink about the Bastard Butcher now, because he’s been caught red handed and it reflects badly on their butcher houses. They really couldn’t give a shit what this psycho has done, but it is so in the open now they have to try and distance themselves. Oh…and they’re afraid they won’t get any more tax money for mammograms…oops…that’s right….they don’t do mammograms…that’s just a bullshit phony lie.

    This is a discussion that needs to be had and a decision made that ultimately resides in settled law. the U.S. Supreme Court needs to end its cowardly avoidance, stand up and provide a legal ruling as to whether this is a state’s right issue or if, the federal government has a legitimate national interest in ensuring a uniform law that provides for any allowance at all, and if an allowance is allowed, a time table as to when the procedure devolves into an unethical practice and a uniform and consistent punishment for violating established federal law.

    “Obama’s speech to Planned Parenthood puts abortion back in spotlight”

    President Obama will again embrace Planned Parenthood this week, headlining the group’s annual gala even amid a growing national focus on abortion.

    Planned Parenthood, a lightning rod in conservative circles, announced Tuesday that Obama would give the keynote speech at its annual Washington event, joining Dr. Ruth Westheimer and actress Lena Dunham as “champions of women’s health.”

    On Wednesday, the White House said Obama would speak to the group on Friday morning instead — so he could spend more time meeting with victims of the plant explosion in West, Texas.

    “President Obama has done more than any president in history for women’s health and rights,” said Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards. “He understands that access to birth control and preventive health care are economic issues for women and their families.”

        Dave,

        Well you can still turn Libertarian now. It is the truest form of what our Founding Fathers meant with the Constitution.

        “Libertarians believe in individual liberty, personal responsibility, and freedom from government – on all issues at all times… A libertarian is someone who thinks you should be free to live your life as you want to live it, not as [the President of the United States] thinks you should – who believes you should raise your children by your values, not those of some far-off bureaucrat who’s using your child as a pawn to create some brave new world – who thinks that, because you’re the one who gets up every day and goes to work, you should be free to keep every dollar you earn, to spend it, save it, give it away as you think best.”– Harry Browne

        “Libertarianism is the view that each person has the right to his life in any way he chooses so long as he or she respects the equal rights of others. Libertarians defend each person’s right to life, liberty and property-rights that people have naturally, before governments are created. In the Libertarian view, all human relationships should be voluntary; the only actions that should be forbidden by law are those that involve the initiation of force against those who have not themselves uses force-actions like murder, robbery, rape, kidnapping and fraud.” – Charles Murray, political scientist and author of What It Means To Be a Libertarian

    “Gosnell’s lawyers could start presenting defense witnesses as early as Wednesday. The 72-year-old has been in prison since a 2011 grand jury report that described his outdated West Philadelphia clinic as “a house of horrors.”

    Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey Minehart had ruled Tuesday that prosecutors over the past month failed to make a case on three of the seven first-degree murder counts, involving aborted babies known as Baby B, Baby C and Baby G.

    On Wednesday, Minehart clarified that he did not intend to dismiss charges related to Baby C, which former employee Lynda Williams admits killing after it was alive for 20 minutes.

    Instead, Minehart has thrown out the charges involving Baby F, which allegedly jerked its leg after it was born. Another staff member says Gosnell then cut the baby’s neck to “ensure fetal demise.”

    Minehart did not elaborate on his ruling, leaving the nearly full courtroom of reporters, abortion opponents and others to interpret his reasoning.”
