Philadelphia prosecutors said Wednesday that abortion provider Dr. Kermit B. Gosnell would receive a third life sentence for the murder of a baby and other crimes he was not previously sentenced for.
In a case that attracted national attention, Philadelphia inner-city abortion provider Kermit B. Gosnell was found guilty of first-degree murder Monday in the deaths of three born-alive babies by "snipping" their spines.
Since March 18, jurors in Philadelphia have been listening to gruesome testimony about what happened inside an abortion clinic. The detailed testimony is gut-wrenching, whether you are taking them in while digesting a morning bowl of grits cooked in chicken broth or savoring every bite of a comfort dish prepared the way grandma did.
A lawyer defending a Philadelphia abortion provider on murder charges accused officials of "an elitist, racist prosecution" as the death-penalty trial opened Monday.
Pennsylvania prosecutors will seek the death penalty for abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell in a state that has not executed an inmate in more than a decade.
Mr. McMahon said he believes his client chose the deal to avoid having his family take part in the penalty proceedings — Gosnell has six children — but that he doesn't agree that he committed murder.
On Wednesday, Gosnell's defense attorney, Jack McMahon, told reporters outside the Philadelphia Criminal Justice Center that "this case is over."
