Abortion doctor guilty of murder

A jury Monday found a Philadelphia abortion provider guilty of three counts of first-degree murder.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, was accused of killing babies by using scissors to cut their spinal cords. Authorities alleged that some of the infants were born alive and viable during the sixth, seventh and eighth months of pregnancy.

Monday's first-degree murder conviction means Gosnell, who is not a board-certified obstetrician or gynecologist, could be sentenced to death.

Gosnell also was accused in the death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41, who died of an anesthetic overdose during a second-trimester abortion at his West Philadelphia clinic. In that case, the jury found him guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

Gosnell was also found guilty of 21 counts of abortion of the unborn, 24 weeks or older.

In Pennsylvania, abortions past 24 weeks are illegal unless the health of the mother is at stake.

    Gosnell is board certified as an obstical. Obama and Congress now need to focus on more stringent abortionist (murderer) Scissor and Coat Hanger Control.

    Did I see the King of Narcissism crying on tv today? Ya, Jimmy Swaggert did the same thing and stoopid people gave him even more money. Don't fall for Emperor Obama's crying routine, after trying to intimidate anyone who disagrees with him he should be kicked for crying like a little girl.

      If you want the real news go to and Fox News. CNN wants to play softball and won't tell you the depth of these scandals, they would rather make Ovomit look innocent. 2+2=4 and Obama's brother got a fast track ( less than a month ) to tax exemption but certain conservative news reporters have been harrassed by the IRS for more than 3 years after interviewing Obama and asking him questions that he didn't like.

      How ironic that the third world dictator seeks to disarm Americans with the excuse of Newtown as he increasingly employs totalitarian measures to coerce and oppress his opposition. This is how communist and sozialist dictatorships moved in around the world. It's happening here now.

      A joke huh. We are commenting on recent news events instead of asking "how r u today?" Or "tell your niece happy bday" or "I like pepperoni pizza". Now all of those are an example what a joke of a forum this place usually is. If you like I would love to hear your opinion on these three scandals Tony

      Then scroll down and read, turn the page, read the previous thread. I have been telling these liberals what's really going on for 2 and 1/2 years. Go to the archives, I have commented on some unbelievable things, but they are all true. Many of them such as the Kelvin Kaigler story I have experienced myself, google his name, you won't believe what you read and while you're at it google CPS Corruption, you won't believe that either but I know it to be true because I watched it happen with my own two eyes.

      I believe Charles said it best @ hamsta , "No one shall be convicted on the testimony of one"
      I haven't even finished the article and while I find Stains rather colorful comments offensive, I find that pony show of a trial all the more offensive.

      @Mary and what makes it worse is Emperor Palpatine ( Obama ) supports abortion and thinks I should have to pay for Juanita's mistake while she goes right back out on the street doing favors for a dollar so she can buy a rock.

I find very odd that people on here, who r very opinionated, have not commented once on these scandals. Very very very odd. But not surprising. Chirp chirp. Lol

    I'm taking donations, all the liberals need brown shirts to wear as their 4th rieche crumbles. Does anyone know where I can get those red bands with the funny looking cross thingy on it? Gotta make it official you know? And yes when your 4th reiche crumbles into nothingness I will hold you accountable for the mess you made. You will be told " It's your fault, you could have stopped it, you chose not to, so now you are going to clean it up and I don't care if you leeches starve paying back that $16 trillion debt your fuhrer created, you will occupy a job."
