No matter what you think about abortion, or Roe v. Wade, or anything else, there was no defending this guy, who is a straight up monster. I have come to oppose the death penalty but it's cases like this that make it tough to maintain that stance.Former Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies authorities said were born alive before having their necks cut with scissors. A jury found Gosnell not guilty of first-degree murder in a fourth baby’s death.
In addition to the murder charges, the 72-year-old was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the overdose death of former patient Karnamaya Mongar.
Gosnell was also found guilty of several other crimes including one count of infanticide, two counts of conspiracy, 21 of 24 counts of abortion of an unborn child of 24 weeks or more and 208 of 227 counts of violation of informed consent of an abortion.
In all, Gosnell was found guilty of 237 crimes. He will now face the death penalty in the sentencing phase, which will begin a week from Tuesday.
The link, which comes from NBC News in Philadelphia, provides a very good synopsis of the particulars of Gosnell's many, many crimes. You should read it all, although I think most people would find the particulars horrifying.
