Abortionist Kermit Gosnell acquitted on three counts of murder

Abortionist Kermit Gosnell acquitted on three counts of murder, On Tuesday, Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell was acquitted on three counts of murder and five counts of corpse abuse, Life News reported.

According to Life News, Gosnell's attorney asked Judge Jeffrey Minehart to drop the charges based on a lack of evidence showing that any babies were born alive at the clinic.

"One of the dropped charges involves a 28-week-old baby Gosnell killed and whose remains were kept in an abortion clinic freezer," Life News said.

Former clinic staffers, however, testified they saw signs of life even after the abortions had been completed, telling the court they saw children “jumping” and “screaming."

But defense attorney Jack McMahon said “there is not one piece …. of objective, scientific evidence that anyone was born alive” at Gosnell's facility, which has been described as a chamber of horrors with body parts kept in jars.

After the ruling, J. D. Mullane, a columnist for the Buck County Courier Times, tweeted that Ed Cameron and Joanne Pescatore, two of the assistant district attorneys, appeared "visibly shaken" for the remainder of the day.

He also observed that members of the media were "puzzled" over "Baby C," who reportedly breathed for 20 minutes before an office assistant snipped the child's neck.

Kareema Cross, an assistant at the clinic, said she saw one child "swimming" in a toilet and "trying to get out" after surviving a late-term abortion.

Last year, Life News said, authorities found bags and bottles that contained remains of aborted children scattered around the clinic, jars with severed feet lining a shelf, and filthy, unsanitary furniture and equipment.

A report at CNS News said workers testified that the clinic's toilet was lifted from the floor to “get the fetuses out of the pipes” in at least one instance.

“The Gosnell case is a watershed moment for the issue of abortion,” Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation, said. “The discovery of his horrific practices helped shed light on an abortion industry that has run amok without oversight or accountability for decades, and has prompted significant changes in abortion laws and attitudes toward enforcement in several states.”

Gosnell still faces five murder charges, including one for allegedly killing a woman in a botched abortion.
