Abortionist Kermit Gosnell has been found guilty of three counts of First Degree Murder. They were 3 out of 4 charges against him in the death of born alive babies from botched late term abortions in his Philadelphia abortion clinic. Gosnell was also found guilty of manslaughter in the death of a patient who died the day after having a Gosnell abortion procedure. There are more than 250 criminal counts against Gosnell that the jury had to deliberate on and come to a verdict over the better part of the last two weeks. The penalty phase is next, and could come as early as next week. The jury will be under a strict "gag-order" while considering if Gosnell's crimes deserve a 'death penalty' sentencing. Gosnell never took the witness stand to defend himself, and his defense never called any witnesses on his behalf.
I will update the verdicts as they become available.
Planned Parenthood's statement on the Gosnell verdict(s):
Planned Parenthood applauded the verdict on Monday, saying in a statement that "The jury has punished Kermit Gosnell for his appalling crimes."
"This verdict will ensure that no woman is victimized by Kermit Gosnell ever again," said Planned Parenthood spokesman Eric Ferrero. "This case has made clear that we must have and enforce laws that protect access to safe and legal abortion, and we must reject misguided laws that would limit women's options and force them to seek treatment from criminals like Kermit Gosnell."
Apparently the 3 verdicts of first degree murder of 3 BABIES completely escapes Planned Parenthood who push the idea (last sentence) that abortion should have no regulations or restrictions. They completely obliterate their condemnation of Gosnell with their twisted logic.
