Gosnell Trial: Abortion Doctor Joked Baby Big Enough to Walk to Bus Stop

Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s horrific late-term abortion clinic has been exposed with vivid testimony during a barely reported trial. If convicted of killing babies, the abortion doctor faces the death penalty.

The sickening and graphic testimony illustrate a bizarre culture of death at the clinic, where medical assistant Adrienne Moton said that the abortionist instructed her to “cut the necks of at least 10 babies after they were delivered,” as reported by Maryclaire Dale of the Associated Press via the Daily News. At the “clinic,” babies “regularly” had their spines “snipped…to ensure fetal demise.” If true, there is no doubt that children were murdered in this house of horrors.

One particularly disturbing antidote came from Moton, who took a photo of one of the children she judged to be at around 30 weeks, delivered by a 17-year-old teenager. Moton testified that the 72-year-old abortion doctor “later joked that the baby was so big he could have walked to the bus stop.” It is stunning that anyone could be so heartless about murdering a baby. The culture of death permeating the clinic is reflective of a disregard for life described in a must-read book written by Wesley J. Smith, called the Culture of Death: The Assault on Medical Ethics in America.

Shayquana Abrams, now 21, who did not tell her parents about her abortion, which “resulted in complications that put her in the hospital for two weeks,” as reported by Joseph A. Slobodzian of Philly.com. It is shocking that this gruesome lack of regard for life persisted for so long at the clinic, where over a 30-year period, the abortion doctor used “cheap, untrained staff, outdated medicines and barbaric techniques to perform abortions on desperate, low-income women,” as charged by the prosecutors. The abortionist also allegedly gave prescriptions for potent painkillers to drug dealers and addicts, and was found with $250K in cash under his mattress. This guy sounds like a real winner.

The doctor is also charged with third-degree murder of Karnamaya Mongar, a 41-year-old refugee from Bhutan who allegedly died after being given too much anesthesia in 2009. The story, while newsworthy, has not attracted much media attention. Hopefully, the families of Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s many alleged victims will receive justice.
