Judge Tosses 3 Murder Charges Against Abortion Doctor

posted on April 25, 2013

A judge in Pennsylvania has thrown three of the seven first-degree murder charges against Dr. Kermit Gonsell, an abortion doctor who allegedly performed illegal late-term abortions, reports Sarah Hoye of CNN. Gosnell’s defense attorney, Jack McMahon, argued that all of the fetuses were already deceased before Gosnell removed them. “The judge made his decision based on what he thinks they (prosecutors) can prove. That’s the only thing we can hold onto,” said Day Gardner, founder and president of the National Black Pro-Life Union. “I’m here because this man preyed on poor women in the black community. He thinks no one should care, but I do.”
