Philadelphia Abortion Doctor Facing 8 Counts of Murder
Charged with killing babies born alive after attempted abortion
Newark, Delaware, January 19, 2011—Today, the shocking news of the arrest of Philadelphia abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell has left the general public speechless. Gosnell , who was arrested Wednesday morning along with his wife and eight others, has been charged with eight counts of murder; seven of whom were infants born alive after late term abortions. After the babies were born alive, he used scissors to cut into the back of their necks and sever their spinal cords. It is believed that these children are only a few of perhaps hundreds that have been killed at the hands of Kermit Gosnell; but due to the absence of those records he cannot be charged further.
The eighth charge Gosnell will face is that of third degree murder in the case of Karnamaya Mongar, who died on November 20th 2009, when she overdosed on anesthetics under his care. Along with Kermit Gosnell’s complete lack of respect for human life, it has been discovered that his medical office contained bags and bottles of aborted children, operating rooms with liter boxes, and unsanitary instruments he used to carry out procedures.
Delaware Right to Life is outraged at the fact that for over twenty years government officials were made aware of Kermit Gosnell’s malpractices and nothing was done to ensure the protection of patients and their children. If action had been taken sooner the lives of Mongar and those seven babies might have been spared. We commend the efforts taken by District Attorney, Seth Williams who had the decency to intervene in one of today’s most recent attacks against the human person, when all others remained silent. We here in America will not see these gruesome injustices which are contrary to our freedoms come to end until personhood is finally restored to the child at the moment of conception. We keep in prayer the victims of this crime, and Mr. Gosnell, for his conversion to life-affirming work and the love of Christ.
