Gosnell Acquitted on 3 Counts of Murder, 5 Counts of Corpse Abuse in Grisly Murder Trial
The Blaze ^ | Apr. 23, 2013 | Billy Hallowell

Posted on 04/23/2013 11:18:52 AM PDT by LucianOfSamasota

t’s shaping up to be a dramatic day in the courtroom for those keeping a watchful eye on the Dr. Kermit Gosnell case. According to columnist J.D. Mullane, a writer for the Bucks County Courier Times, the abortion doctor was acquitted this morning on three counts of murder.

In a series of tweets from inside the courtroom, Mullane described the dismissals, noting that Gosnell still has five murder charges remaining against him (in sequence from oldest to newest):

#Gosnell defense atty Jack McMahon asks Judge Jeffrey Minehart for abort doc's acquittal. Judge listens, takes recess.

#Gosnell Judge Minehart acquits abort doc on 3 counts murder, 1 infanticide, 5 abuse of corpse; but 5 murder charges remain.

Acquitted?

Yeah. Maybe someone else murdered those babies, caused the death of that immigrant woman, left baby body parts in other women, left baby parts in the refrigerator, snipped them necks, and so on and so on...

~Sheesh~

Culture of death.

As the secular progressives reject Judeo-Christian values, the US will drift into ever greater atrocities.

Progressives are just Nazi’s or Stalinist’s waiting for their chance.

Was he actually “acquitted”, or did the judge just drop the charges?

What about torture? This isn’t just about murder, it’s more about TORTURE, IMO. He seemed to have enjoyed PROLONGING the suffering. Murder pales in comparison to the perverse enjoyment he got from torturing these babies.

I think as long as you call them a ‘fetus’, its legal to do anything you want to them.

I’m waiting for Obama, et al. to decide conservatives are also ‘fetuses’.

One paragraph says "acquittal" and the next says "dismissal."

Which is it?

There is a minimum of 20 years of horrifying here for those opposed to abortion. They should do an extended media blitz with books, pictures, quotes, videos, all outside the MSM and broadcast it everywhere. Especially those inner city areas where PP focuses its harm.

I would especially recommend making such materials available by any means to high school aged children, many of whom are raised in intellectually and emotionally sheltered situations. They especially would have their minds blown by this, and many of them would be passionately opposed to abortion thereafter.

I would guess the defense argued that these babies were scheduled for legal murder, so what Gosnell did was assure that the legal murder was carried out.

See, he is innocent. /sarc

Even those in favor of “women’s rights” should be appalled by this, if not for the illegal late term abortions, than AT LEAST for the disgusting conditions for black women as opposed to somewhat “nicer” treatment of white women. It seems that “Abortion” trumps ALL.

This explains why the left won’t cover this story:

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 17, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A left-wing media commentator has said what many pro-life activists long believed: that an overwhelmingly liberal media consciously chose not to cover the trial of Kermit Gosnell, because they feared it would undermine their political stance on abortion.

“For what it’s worth, I do think that those of us on the Left have made a decision not to cover this trial because we worry that it’ll compromise abortion rights,” said Marc Lamont Hill, a Columbia University professor known for his frequent appearance on Fox News. “Whether you agree with abortion or not, I do think there’s a direct connection between the media’s failure to cover this and our own political commitments on the Left.”

Hill said he thought the captivity of media coverage to a “progressive” political agenda was a negative development but one that may be insurmountable.

“I think it’s a bad idea,” he said of the blackout. “I think it’s dangerous, but I think that’s the way it is.”

Hill was briefly fired from his stint as a commentator on “The O’Reilly Factor” after his admiration of Assata Shakur, a cop-killer who fled for refuge to Castro’s Cuba, became public.

Planned Parenthood and the Democrat party will pay off, bribe, blackmail, and extort anybody they have to in order to make this nightmare go away. Do you have any idea how much money the Democrat party launders through Planned Parenthood?

I agree.
Is there any background on this judge? He's a Philadelphia judge, so I have to presume he's a Democrat who does exactly what he is told to do, ie., he's corrupt to the core.

I hear you.

But it could be argued (not by me, of course) that he was doing illegal late term abortions, in a substandard facility, spreading disease, and negligently causing the death of at least one adult woman.

That would at least get him out of circulation. By approving of his practices, the “pro-Choice” crowd are hurting their cause by not being critical of his evil back-alley doings.

But then, we have the same situation with islam. Where are the “good muslims” decrying terrorism?
