The Catholic Defender: Philadelphia Doctor Charged with murder

Today, I am writing you from the office of Dr. Gregory Thompson as we prepare for the upcoming event at Jefferson City State Capital Building. Fox News reported the Dr. Kermit Gosnell story.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, made millions of dollars over 30 years, performing as many illegal, late-term abortions as he could, prosecutors said (

An abortion doctor who catered to minorities, immigrants and poor women was charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, made millions of dollars over 30 years, performing as many illegal, late-term abortions as he could, prosecutors said. State regulators ignored complaints about him and failed to visit or inspect his clinic since 1993, but no charges were warrented against them, District Attorney Seth Williams said.

Gosnell, his wife and eight other colleagues were arrested overnight Tuesday following a grand jury investigation, reports.

According to the district attorney's office, Gosnell is facing murder in the third degree for the death of 41 year old Karnamaya Mongar. The patient died Nov. 20, 2009, when she was overdosed with anesthetics prescribed by Gosnell, according to the station.

District Attorney Williams said during a press conference Wednesday that Gosnell "induced laber, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord".

The District Attorney also said patients were subjected to squalid and barbaric conditions at Gosnell's Women's Medical Society.

Authorities went to investigate drug-related complaints at the clinic last year and stumbled on what Williams called a "house of horrors".

"There were bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses scattered throughout the building", Williams said. "There were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose".

The clinic was shut down and Gosnell's medical license was suspended after the raid.

Workers, some of whom were also charged with murder, were untrained and unlicensed, including a high-school student who performed anesthesia with potentially lethal narcotics, Williams said.

Gosnell has been named in at least 10 malpractice suits, including one over the death of a woman who died of sepsis and a perforated uterus.

"I am aware that abortion is a hot-botton topic", Williams told reporters. "But as district attorney, my job is to carry out the law. A doctor who knowingly and systematically mistreats female patients, to the point of them dies in his so-called care, commits murder under the law".

We are facing the great evil of our times. Every 20 seconds statistically, an unborn child is killed in America. We better wake up if it is not too late already. The writing may already be on the wall. Please pray for our Nation and the world.

Bill O'Riely, I often love the factor, but I agree with one who wrote in to your show saying: "A fetus is not 'potentially' a human being, but rather, a fetus is a human being with potential"
