I thought this day would never come. The MSM can no longer pretend they didn’t “hear” about the trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell (ABC News’ Terry Moran even tweeted last night that the murderer in question “is probably the most successful serial killer in the history of the world”). But still too many networks have failed to report on the details of the case.
That being said, the indispensable pro-life website Life News has compiled a list of the ten most horrific revelations to emerge from the trial -- many of which have gone unreported.
1) A young woman who worked at Kermit Gosnell’s abortion clinic as a teenager testified that she saw a baby’s chest move even after the gruesome snipping procedure Gosnell used to end the baby’s life. “The chest was moving,” she testified. The baby was so large that another worker even took a cellphone picture of it. Prosecution experts, based on the picture, say the baby was well past 24 weeks, the legal limit for abortion in Pennsylvania.
2) Another former employee described how she heard a baby scream during a live-birth abortion. “I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien,” he testified, telling a judge and Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas jury that the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.
3) Stephen Massof, who does not have a medical license, described how he jabbed medical scissors into the backs of babies’ necks to kill them. He assisted Gosnell in “snipping” the spinal cords of babies, calling it, “literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body.”
Why was this House of Death not inspected for 17 years? Indeed, how could this barbarism possibly have gone on for so long? The answer I’m afraid is all too predictable.

Do the charges in this case list the number of deaths? What are the exact charges? Have the mothers themselves been involved in the case, and will they testify? Thanks.

I don't think the mothers are involved, as they did not go to the clinic to have the babies and get them killed after.

what do you mean the mothers weren't involved, why else would you go to a abortion clinic and lay up on a table.
and i'm pretty sure most women know how many weeks along they are.
and if he aborted the babies with out their consent i think someone would have said something.

wow, this is crazy, i am pro choice, but NOT pro murder, their is a
limit on how long one can wait to make the decision.
Personally i could not agree to abortion for any reason, its just not
in me, but i believe that in general women and men who they are involved
with deserve the option if early enough, but for me, just couldn't to it.
But this.... this is sad, hope this guy gets what is deserved in the long run,
and its not justice through the system either. It's after he is sentenced to prison
his justice will happen.
Truck painter who confessed to killing 71 women. The United States' most prolific serial killer; also known as The Green River Killer. He almost exclusively targeted escorts from Seattle. Once there, he would proposition a prostitute, drive to the banks of the Green River, and strangle her to death. After murdering his victim he would dump her body near the nearby water. Suspected of killing over 90 victims, confessed to 71, convicted of 49

This is certainly horrible but it doesn't even put him in the top tier for serial killers.
From what I can see there are less than 10 victims.
Not to make light of what he did but to compare him to someone like Gary Ridgway who had far more victims isn't putting this in the proper context.
Perhaps you should read the Grand Jury Report before making a statement like this.
This utterly despicable excuse for a human being had been operating his Chamber of Horrors since 1979 and is suspected of killing HUNDREDS of fetuses and live born infants.
He routinely kept infant body parts in jars, plastic garbage bags and freezers there inside the "clinic". That is what alerted the police to the fact that there was some truly horrific things going on there.
He is only being charged on those 10 counts because he routinely destroyed all of his files so there is no paper trail evidence. Please if you really want to know about a true psychopathic serial killer read the Grand Jury Report.edit on 05/28/2012 by Octave because: tried to fix the quote

Yes, but what the doctor is supposed to do is to kill the unborn baby, then remove it from the womb, not removing it first and then kill it.

Why is one of those okay, and the other is not? Out of sight, out of mind?
I find it repugnant that the only reason he's in trouble is because he got the order wrong.
