  • Gosnell Got Snipping Idea From Partial-Birth Abortion Inventor

    Abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell has drawn national attention for his gruesome method of killing babies in an abortion-infanticide procedure that involves snipping their necks with medical scissors. The idea of jabbing scissors into the back of necks of babies shortly after their forced induced birth sounds like something out of a creep science fiction film. The reality is, as one pro-life blogger has put together, the idea came from an Ohio abortion practitioner in a paper presented to the National Abortion Federation. In 1992, abortion practitioner Martin Haskell wrote a seminal paper presenting the new partial-birth abortion method, which has...

    The defense attorney for abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell is furious about the Fox News special that aired Friday and Sunday nights exposing the gruesome abortions and infanticides that took place at his abortion clinic. Jack McMahon claims the special was designed to sway members of the jury, even though jurors have been instructed to not watch or read any media coverage of Gosnell and the murder trial. As local Philadelphia reporter J.D. Mullane reported on Twitter this morning: and Following McMahons outburst, Judge Jefferey P. Minehart called the jury into the courtroom and instructed them to let him know if...

    To hear it from pro-life advocates watching the Kermit Gosnell murder trial, it should take the jury all of five minutes to return a guilty verdict on the first degree murder charges he faces for killing four babies. But the just has now spent four days deliberating and concluded today without a verdict in the case. It will resume on Monday. Why is the jury taking so long to adjudicate what seems like an open and shut case of infanticide?

  • NBC Plays Up Clinic's Location In 'Low-Income Neighborhood'

    On Wednesday, NBC Nightly News covered the Dr. Kermit Gosnell case for the very first time, a whopping 44 days after the opening of the trial, and only after the jury had finished its first full day of deliberations. Stephanie Gosk wasted little time before emphasizing that Gosnell's clinic was "one of the only places in this low-income neighborhood in Philadelphia where pregnant woman could afford to go for abortions" [audio available here; video below the jump]. Gosk's report was also the first time that Big Three aired a report on the case on its evening newscasts, even as ABC...

    One of the most disgusting serial killers in American history is standing trial in Philadelphia at the moment and, since its happening in the US, where reporting restrictions are light, the media are free to discuss his case. Only they havent at least, not until recently, and even when the crimes are reported, they havent merited many headlines. Which is horrifying, when you consider what the killer is accused of. Im going to leave out the nastiest details but, seriously, if you dont want to feel sick to your stomach, look away now.

    The defense attorney for abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell presented his closing arguments to the jury today and claimed there was no evidence the babies whose necks Gosnell snipped were alive at the time he snipped them. Jack McMahon attempted to make the case to the jury today that workers for Gosnell are exaggerating the importance of movements in babies Gosnell killed. He was already successful in getting three of the seven murder counts dropped related to the babies. Now he hoped they will find him not guilty on four murder charges. The grand jury report indicated one baby was moving...

    In previous articles, Live Action has covered cases where babies born alive after abortions were denied medical care and allowed to die, or, in some cases, were killed by direct action. The recent trial of Kermit Gosnell shows that these incidents continue to occur. The sheer number of cases we know about leads one to wonder how often babies are born alive but no one outside the abortion clinic ever knows. In April of 2005, a pregnant woman named Angele, decided to abort her 22 week old unborn baby. She was in her 30s, divorced, and already had two children....

    President Obama continues to break barriers in his historical Presidency. Some of them infamous barriers, but he breaks them nonetheless. This past Friday was just such an occasion. Because, to my knowledge, for the first time, a sitting President brought the full weight of the office he holds face to face in support of an organization that killed 339,000 American children, the last year we have records for. Not only that President Obama beamed proudly, as he congratulated the "good work" this organization has done (while killing 339,000 children a year), and pledged continued support from you and me--the American...

    Without calling a single witness, the defense yesterday rested in the case of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortionist facing five counts of murder. Thats one count of murder for allegedly killing a woman who came to his Womens Medical Society in search of a late-term abortion, his specialty. And four counts for infants allegedly delivered and born alive, then callously murdered in cold blood as they fought for life. In a probably related note, President Obama has canceled plans to give the keynote address at tonights Planned Parenthood fund-raiser in Washington. With Gosnell in the headlines, its not a...

Another involved Baby B, about whom a Gosnell staffer testified was a newborn child who survived a failed abortion and was still breathing into a shoe box. The third murder charge thrown out was for Baby G, who was the subject of testimony of a former Gosnell staff...

He was successful in getting three of the seven murder counts dropped related to the babies.

But defense attorney Jack McMahon said the babies Gosnell killed in an abortion processing involving their live...
