Former Gosnell Employee Testifies In Abortion-Murder Trial That Problem Abortion "Really Freaked Me Out'

Joseph A. Slobodzian at the Philadelphia Inquirer offers a reporter on the trial of Kermit Gosnell (seen in the above mugshot).

Kermit Gosnell had been Sherry West's doctor for more than 20 years and gave her a job when she was ill and out of work.

Still, West testified, she hated working in the room where Gosnell performed abortions - never more than the night a staffer asked for help with a problem at Gosnell's Women's Medical Society clinic in West Philadelphia.

"There was this clear glass pan, and I saw it, and I thought, 'What do you expect me to do?' " West testified Monday at Gosnell's murder trial.

"It wasn't fully developed," West told the Common Pleas Court jury, referring to the 18- to 24-inch-long newborn in the pan. It didn't have eyes or a mouth but it was like screeching, making this noise. It was weird. It sounded like a little alien."

Questioned by Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore, West, 53, said she did not know what happened to the "specimen" - the term she said she used because "it was easier to deal with mentally."
