Kermit Gosnell was a Philidelphia area abortionist who is on trial for mueder. He is not only responsible for killing one of the women who came in for an abortion, but also for delivering babies alive and then killing the children by severing their spinal cord, even to the point where the babies could scream aloud or where Gosnell would joke that they were big enough to walk home. He even performed an abortion on a young, underage girl who did not want an abortion and tried to leave.
The Grand Jury indictment has been released. It is beyond disturbing. In it the Grand Jury, consisting of both Pro-Life and Pro-Choice supporters, condemned the sheer and utter evil of Gosnell:
“This case is about a doctor who killed babies and endangered women. What we mean is that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable, babies in the third trimester of pregnancy – and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors. The medical practice by which he carried out this business was a filthy fraud in which he overdosed his patients with dangerous drugs, spread venereal disease among them with infected instruments, perforated their wombs and bowels – and, on at least two occasions, caused their deaths. Over the years, many people came to know that something was going on here. But no one put a stop to it.
“Let us say right up front that we realize this case will be used by those on both sides of the abortion debate. We ourselves cover a spectrum of personal beliefs about the morality of abortion. For us as a criminal grand jury, however, the case is not about that controversy; it is about disregard of the law and disdain for the lives and health of mothers and infants. We find common ground in exposing what happened here, and in recommending measures to prevent anything like this from ever happening again.”

Update: There are now reports that up to ten babies were actually breathing, with one even crying, before being butchered.
