Abortionist Gosnell Convicted On 3 counts Of First Degree Murder
There was a verdict today in the trial of abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia. While original reports claimed that the jury was hung on two counts, in the end, Gosnell was convicted on 3 counts of first degree murder in the deaths of three babies. He was convicted of third-degree murder (involuntary manslaughter) in the 2009 death of patient Karnamaya Mongara, a young mother, and acquitted for lack of evidence in the death of one baby.
Gosnell was also found guilty of numerous lesser charges, including multiple counts of violating Pennsylvania’s informed consent law and twenty-one counts of abortion of unborn babies over twenty-four weeks gestation.
According to witnesses, the verdict appeared to surprise and anger both Gosnell and his attorney, Jack McMahon.
He could receive a sentence of death or of imprisonment for life. The sentencing part of the trial will convene next week.
The media, except for FOX News and the local Philadelphia news pretty much refused to cover the Gosnell story in any depth.In fact, the New York Times, in its brief mention didn't even use the term 'baby'.
Apparently, a lot of the Left is only interested when children die in a way that can be spun to support their agenda. Otherwise it's move along, nothing to see here.
