Philadelphia Prosecutor Says Kermit Gosnell Is A Murderer, Not An Abortionist
Joseph A. Slobodzian at the Philadelphia Inquirer reports on the trial of Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia.
Calling it a case not about abortion but about murder, a Philadelphia prosecutor this morning opened the trial of West Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell.
Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore told the Common Pleas Court jury that evidence would show that Gosnell, 72, was a "wolf in sheep's clothing" who "used and abused desperate women."
Pescatore told the jury that abortion is legal in Pennsylvania up until the 24th week of pregnancy. Gosnell, however, specialized in what the prosecutor called "high-volume high-profit" illegal late-term abortions that "almost guarantee a live birth."
"If a baby is born alive, it's alive and no one has the right to take some solution to kill it," Pescatore said.
