Philadelphia abortion-clinic employees plead guilty to murder

Catholic World News - October 28, 2011

Two workers at a Philadelphia abortion clinic have entered guilty pleas on murder charges, in the first concrete results of a case involving multiple charges against an abortionist.

The guilty pleas were entered by employees of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, whose clinic in West Philadelphia was cited by authorities for substandard hygiene, improper care, and the deliberate killing of babies who were born alive following botched abortions. Gosnell and six other employees still face criminal charges.

    Looking at the pictures of the 2 women who did the heinous act described, my 11 year old granddaughter and I read the way the born babies were killed and I watched Julie's face freeze into total horror, unmoveable. It was a picture missed, that left words unnecessary, and showed the true, monstrous nature of abortion.
