Philadelphia’s CBS 3 is reporting that Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist in West Philadelphia is under investigation by state and federal authorities after a woman died following an abortion in his office. During a raid yesterday, police discovered more than two dozen frozen dead babies.
From CBS 3:
Sources tell Eyewitness News that the search came after a patient reportedly died following an abortion on November 20.
According to the State Board of Medicine, Dr. Gosnell had an unlicensed staff member conduct vaginal exams and administer medication.
In the November 20 case, the state claims the staff member administered Demerol, Promethazine and Diazepam to the female patient.
After the doctor arrived at the clinic, the patient was given more medication. After the doctor performed an abortion, the patient started to have an arrhythmia and later died, state officials said. Autopsy results are pending.
Sources also told Eyewitness News that during the search, investigators recovered more than two dozen fetuses stored in a freezer, some dating back 30 years.
The fetuses are now being analyzed to reveal if illegal late-term abortions may have been performed.
This certainly is not the first time Dr. Gosnell has come under legal scrutiny. In 1995, Dr. Gosnell got into trouble with the State Licensing Board for hiring non-certified employees who actually saw and treated patients.(Creative Minority Report, has more on Dr. Gosnells history of illegal abortion practices.)
This nightmare of a story begs the question..how can abortionists and the pro-abortion lobby claim to be on the side of women when women are dying all the time from botched abortions? Can you really claim to respect the dignity of women when you mutilate their bodies, kill them, and then keep their dead children as mementos?
