PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A Philadelphia jury today convicted West Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell of three counts of first-degree murder for cutting the necks of babies born alive and viable.
Gosnell was also convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of a woman who died during an abortion at his clinic.
Gosnell, 72, was found not guilty on a fourth count of first-degree murder involving the death of a fetus but was found guilty of infanticide — that is, negligence causing the death of an infant.
