  • PA Planned Parenthood reschedules abortions to dodge inspectors

    An informant from the Planned Parenthood Keystone affiliate in Pennsylvania has slipped me some fascinating new documents. Recall Pennsylvania is the home of infanticide abortionist Kermit Gosnell, convicted in May 2013 of first degree murder in the deaths of three babies and involuntary manslaughter of a patient. In reality, Gosnell likely “snipped” the spinal cords of hundreds if not thousands of babies he aborted alive over three decades but was never caught. The state simply stopped inspecting abortion clinics “for political reasons,” according to the Gosnell Grand Jury Report. Gosnell’s heinous crimes were only discovered by accident when the FBI...

    Three filmmakers are crowd funding a multi-million dollar movie about Kermit Gosnell and his late-term abortion clinic, stressing the need to bring attention to the morally and politically charged case. “The media have basically ignored his crime and his trial,” Phelim McAleer, one of the filmmakers, said in the project’s introductory video. “He ran an abortion clinic in Philadelphia where he delivered live, viable babies and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors,” McAleer continued. In May 2013 Gosnell was convicted of three first degree murder charges for killing babies who had been born alive. Testimony...

    One year ago, on March 18, 2013, the trial of abortion monster Dr. Kermit Gosnell began in Philadelphia. Two months later Gosnell was convicted on three charges of murder, 21 felony counts of performing illegal late-term abortions, and 211 counts of violating the 24-hour informed consent laws. Gosnell’s convictions really just reflected the tip of the iceberg of what was going on in that clinic. Until inspectors showed up in February 2010 as result of investigation into suspected illegal drug prescription use, Gosnell’s facility operated uninspected for 17 years. According to the Grand Jury report, the last state inspection, before...

    PHILADELPHIA, December 16, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Kermit Gosnell has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for illegally dispensing prescription drugs, bringing an end to the most-watched legal saga related to an abortionist. U.S. District Judge Cynthia Rufe imposed the sentence in addition to the three consecutive life sentences Gosnell is already serving for murdering at least three newborns at his “house of horrors” abortion facility. Reporter Sean G. O'Sullivan, who attended today's sentencing for The News Journal in Delaware, tweeted the sentence late this afternoon. In July, Gosnell entered a guilty plea to running a prescription drug operation. Patients...

On November 19 the residents of Albuquerque will vote on a first of its kind city ordinance, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Ordinance, which, if passed, would legally protect unborn babies 20 weeks after fertilization from late abortion. If passed, Albuquerque would be the first municipality to enact this kind of pro-life ordinance in the nation, making it truly historic. The reality is Roe v.

It’s a perfectly reasonable question, but one that Pelosi answered with derision...

As most people who have followed the case know, officials discovered and obtained 45 babies from Gosnell’s clinic — many of whom had their bodies stored in a freezer. But did authorities obtain all of the bodies of the babies Gosnell killed and stored in his House of Horrors? As local reporter J.D. Mullane reported today on Twitter, maybe not.

    Don't tell me the left doesn't survive primarily on luck. On Friday, April 12, the legacy media was on the ropes. A spectacular uproar, of a type never before seen, had erupted over media refusal to cover the trial of Kermit Gosnell, the serial killer lucky enough to own an abortion mill. The story they were attempting to bury involved his trial for a homicide by medical malpractice (one of several such), the murder of four healthy infants (out of hundreds of similar killings), the abuse of human remains, and assorted associated felonies. Gosnell had been enabled by official malfeasance...

    PHILADELPHIA, April 16, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Kermit Gosnell's history of injuring women through reckless abortion practices extends as far back as 1972, when he injured nine women by testing an experimental abortion device on them that caused plastic razor blades to lacerate their wombs. Even then, however, Gosnell escaped receiving any disciplinary action, with the state turning a blind eye, as it would for the next four decades as he operated his "House of Horrors."

He said he was confident in the legal system but blamed “The baby factor” for the convictions. He also blamed the media, which is odd given the stunning lack of attention it gave to the Gosnell murder trial over the last several weeks. “The media has been overwhelmingly against [Gosnell],” he told reporters. Still, McMahon applauded the jury for taking its job seriously: “They didn’t just come down kneejerk and find him guilty of everything,...

    Kermit Gosnell. If you don't recognize the name, that's understandable. His trial in Philadelphia -- on multiple counts of murder -- has been covered extensively by the local papers. But beyond that, it's as though a news blackout had been declared on the major networks and newspapers of the mainstream denomination. Some things must not be mentioned in those quarters, at least no more than in passing. One of them, it seems, is the grisly case of Dr. Gosnell, whose murder trial upsets too many myths about abortion, the one American institution the Progressive establishment never challenges. Those of us...

The Examiner's Tim Carney witnessed the closing argument: “Every one of those babies died in utero.” That is the pillar on which abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s defense rests. Defense attorney John J. McMahon’s closing argument Monday boiled down to this: Gosnell’s supposed crimes were really just late-term abortions. The question in Gosnell’s case, McMahon said, is not “whether he was an abortion doctor,” or “is abortion bloody and ugly?” The question is whether Gosnell killed babies after they were born or...

The fact that abortion “clinics” are allowed to operate virtually unregulated in most states (either as a result of a lack of regulations or lack of enforcement) puts the health and lives of Americans in danger. In light of their demands that abortion be legalized for safety reasons, it is the ultimate form of hypocrisy that abortion advocates refuse to support regulations that would make facilities safer for women. The Gosnell trial highlights one such horrific instance of...

    If you are the usual run-of-the-mill pro-abortion apologist, you are counting on media indifference, a cloud of smoke, and time to dull the impact of the sensational murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell. After all, if the trial is very much under-covered and the edge is take off by fobbing the blame off on pro-lifers [!], then given enough time, it will “all go away”—or so they hope. There are a couple of problems with that optimistic assessment. For starters, there are so many incredibly violent to the point of nausea statement from the Grand Jury’s report that a considerable...

    One of the perks of what I do is becoming friends with some of the great thinkers of our time, and one of those is Leon Kass. Kass is the reigning intellectual champion for upholding intrinsic human dignity. He also served splendidly for about six years as the chairman of the President’s Council on Bioethics–receiving undeserved brickbats from the bioethical Left–despite, or perhaps better stated, because of–the Council’s incredibly good analytical work about the vexing bioethical issues of our time, including cloning, the definition of death, and the transhumanist impulse, among other issues. Kass was recently interviewed by the Wall...

    Everyone in the country wants to know how it is that Kermit Gosnell was able to practice under such abhorrent conditions without anyone noticing. Pro-aborts blame pro-lifers. There have also been a lot of questions about how Gosnell was able to practice for 17 years without being inspected. Conor Friedersdorf at The Atlantic wanted to find out how difficult it was to file a complaint with the state of Pennsylvania. Apparently, it’s extremely difficult. How difficult is it to file a complaint against a rogue abortion doctor in Pennsylvania? It’s a question I had after reading the grand jury report...

    Elizabeth Harrington at CNSNews.com reported on horrors described on the last day of testimony before the prosecution rested in the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Kareema Cross, a “medical assistant” who worked at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic for four-and-a-half years, testified that she saw one late-term baby who survived an abortion "swimming" in a toilet and "trying to get out." "Did you ever see those babies move?” asked Prosecutor Joanne Pescatore. “Yes, once in the toilet,” said Cross. The baby “was like swimming,” she said.  “Basically, trying to get out.” Cross told the jury that when Shayquana Abrams...

    April 19, 2013 Leon Kass: The Meaning of the Gosnell Trial Eminent bioethicist Leon Kass on the dangers of a world increasingly indifferent to matters of human dignity. By SOHRAB AHMARI The trial of Kermit Gosnell—a Philadelphia doctor charged in January 2011 with, among other things, murdering seven infants who survived abortions he performed—has been under way for a month. But it was only last week that the case was thrust into the national spotlight. Thanks to intense pressure from conservative critics of the media's apparent lack of interest in the case, the rest of the country has now glimpsed...

    Toilet In Abortion Clinic Needed to be Lifted to ‘Get the Fetuses Out of the Pipes’ April 19, 2013 By Michael W. Chapman (Warning: Some of the material presented in this story is graphic.) (CNSNews.com) – A witness testified in the Gosnell abortion-murder trial that she saw one baby expelled alive into a toilet where it “was like swimming” and “trying to get out.” According to the grand jury report in the case, clinic workers testified that babies often expelled from their mothers into the toilet and that, in at least one instance, the toilet was lifted from the floor...

    President Barack Obama delivered an impassioned speech Thursday at the memorial service for victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. But that was to be expected. We all know Obama can give a stem-winder. What wasn’t expected was that this would be by far the toughest week of the Obama presidency—the first time I can remember the president being dealt an unequivocal policy defeat. Only the “shellacking” of the 2010 midterm comes close, and even there a case can be made that achieving the decades-old progressive dream of universal health care was worth losing the House of Representatives and a filibuster-proof...

    The trial of notorious Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell -- as close to a demonic presence as anything this country will ever see -- was almost a month old when the network blackout finally ended. CNN broke its silence, as did CBS. National newspapers sent reporters to the trial for the first time. They started covering it only because of a national outrage that they would so deliberately withhold this horror story from the public -- for political reasons. Kirsten Powers in USA Today insisted: "This should be front page news. When Rush Limbaugh attacked Sandra Fluke, there was non-stop...
