Grand Jury Testimony in the Kermit Gosnell Case: Part 2

with 3 comments

You can read the entire sordid story of Mrs. Mongar’s death at the hands of “doctor” Gosnell. But here is more general testimony.

Mrs. Mongar was just one of many patients victimized by Gosnell’s depravity.
There were scores more. At least one other mother died following an abortion in which
Gosnell punctured her uterus and then sent her home. He left an arm and a leg of a
partially aborted fetus in the womb of another woman, and then told her he did not need
to see her when she became sick days later, having developed a temperature of 106
degrees. He perforated bowels, cervixes, and uteruses. He left women sterile.
He also killed live, viable, moving, breathing, crying babies. He killed them by
cutting their spinal cords after their mothers had delivered them after receiving excessive
amounts of medication designed to induce active labor. This report documents multiple
murders of viable babies. The evidence makes a compelling case that many others were
also murdered.
Gosnell and his employees performed abortions long after the legal limit. The
doctor’s unorthodox methods, especially with late second-trimester and third-trimester
pregnancies, virtually mandated the premature delivery of live babies – whose spinal
cords he would then routinely slit. These practices persisted for many years without
interruption by any regulatory body.
The pain, suffering, and death that he and his employees perpetrated were not the
result of accidentally botched procedures. It was Gosnell’s standard business practice, to
slay viable babies. The women who died, or whose health he recklessly endangered or
irreparably harmed, were simply collateral damage for the doctor’s corrupt and criminal

  1. As you say, media silence on these sorts of things is deafening, isn’t it? I wonder what ol’ Screwtape would have said about abortion.

  2. The sheer negligence of the authorities in failing to provide the oversight that would have ended this much sooner is sickening. This operation was open to the public, it’s not like it was some black market type of thing. That might be a bigger story than what Gosnell did — we’ve seen sick people do sick things before — but how could our authorities not notice? One story says he was sued 15 times for malpractice, and no one took a closer look at his operation?

    At least the PA governor’s response seemed pretty strong.

    Also I fear pro-abortion folks saying, “Imagine how much more widespread this type of thing would be if abortion were illegal?”

    By the way I’m not his PR guy or anything, but Steve Wagner is either Steve or Stephen (not Steven, as the link reads in your blogroll). Happened across his link to an MSNBC article from last month that suggests China may have 10 times the number of abortions as the U.S.

    • A.L. – The more I read the Grand Jury testimony, the more I agree with you. Today’s (Thurs.) post will confirm even more of what you’re saying. How could you be seeing dead babies in the plumbing and not be calling the police?
