Kermit Gosnell

Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell has been found guilty of three counts of first degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter. He was also convicted of a slew of lesser chargers. The Washington Post has the details.

Abortion provider Kermit Gosnell was convicted Monday of three counts of first-degree murder for severing the spinal cords of infants born during abortions at his West Philadelphia clinic.

Gosnell also was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of 41-year-old Virginia woman Karnamaya Mongar, who died from an overdose of drugs while undergoing an abortion at the clinic. Prosecutors described the clinic as a “house of horrors” because of the unsanitary conditions and unsafe practices that defined it.

The trial now moves into a sentencing phase to decide whether Gosnell should receive the death penalty or face life in prison on the capital murders counts.

The verdicts were announced just before 3 p.m., a few hours after the jurors informed the judge in the case that they were hung on two charges. (Read More)

It’s not known at this time what charges the jury was hung on earlier. Gosnell’s attorney is on TV right now and said his client is “disappointed and upset.” Good. He should hang his head in shame.
