ABC News is reporting that prospective jurors in the trial of Kermit Gosnell are being asked whether they have “qualms” about abortion or the death penalty, with a “yes” answer resulting in dismissal from the case.
Dr. Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortionist, is on trial for the 2009 death of one of his patients, Karnamaya Mongar, following an abortion. He also faces charges in the deaths of seven infants born alive and then killed by having their spinal cords severed.
These are the most serious charges arising from operations at Gosnell’s facility in West Philadelphia. Life News has a summary here of what was discovered by a grand jury investigating Gosnell’s practice. This makes for tough reading. There is no delicate way to describe the treatment women and surviving children experienced at the ill-named “Women’s Medical Society.”
