Philadelphia abortionist faces multiple murder counts
Catholic World News - January 19, 2011
A Philadelphia abortionist has been charged with 8 counts of murder.
Dr. Kermith Gosnell was arrested after a woman died following a botched abortion. Prosecutors charge that he also killed 7 infants who were born alive after he illegally attempted late-term abortions. He has also been under investigation for providing improper prescriptions for drugs.

Some deluded soul commented that there would be many more such cases if abortion were legalized. What a justification! If they only would open their eyes to the carnage already taking place in the name of "women's health".

This report doesn't report the 8th count was a woman who died of a perforated uterus because of the good doctor's recklessness.
