Jury: Philadelphia Doctors Failed To Report Dangerous Peer

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – A Philadelphia doctor accused of regularly maiming women and killing viable babies at his filthy abortion clinic should have been reported by other physicians but was not.

A grand jury report says local doctors failed in their legal, professional and ethical duties to tell regulators about Dr. Kermit Gosnell.

At least six women who went to Gosnell for abortions ended up in the emergency rooms of the University of Pennsylvania Health System. They had life-threatening infections and internal injuries; two died.

A health system spokeswoman says Penn doctors did make several verbal reports to the state but only one was written down.

Gosnell was ultimately charged with eight counts of murder in the death of one patient and seven babies. He has not entered a plea.

    Political correctness is a killer.

    Dee, you bring up an interesting thought. After 70 plus years of Christian thinking, I believe these babies may have been blessed by God, by not being born. I remember that old saying, “the good die young.” I also remember Jesus saying, this world belongs to Satan. Therefore, these babies’ souls were too innocent for this world.

  3. Dee says:

    There are many dangerous doctors who are killing babies whether still in the womb or outside the womb… I love the definition of viable… amazing how there are “clever” definitiions of what is considered a baby.. guess it makes those that are involved in killing their babies by abortion, less “guilty”.. may God bless those unborn babies that are dying every day. To those that allow it and perform genocide… they will be judged
