PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The attorney for Kermit Gosnell spoke with Dom Giordano to defend Gosnell’s character and admit there needs to be changes to late term abortion laws.
Jack McMahon, Philadelphia defense attorney, joined Giordano for an interview on 1210 WPHT Thursday.
During the interview McMahon said that after spending 2 1/2 years with Gosnell, the convicted abortion doctor treated him as a gentleman, was polite and had very good discussions.
“If you want me to come on and say ‘Oh he’s a monster and he’s this evil guy that I experienced,’ I didn’t experience that,” said McMahon. “I know what he was convicted of, those are evil things, I agree with that. But if you want me to give an honest answer to how I spent 2 1/2 years with him…I’ve represented some really rotten people who I couldn’t say that about, who the representing of them is very difficult, they’re difficult people to deal with, but that’s not Dr. Gosnell.”
As the interview went on McMahon went on to say that people should sit down and have a discussion on what to do moving forward instead of calling Gosnell names, such as monster.
“I think one of the things that happens to all of this in this world is we start labeling ourselves. I think I did that myself, I mean I always considered myself pro-choice and that’s an easy label and I don’t have to deal with it anymore,” said McMahon. “But as I saw the case, obviously… hopefully intelligent people can reevaluate their positions…what I reevaluated in this case is that late term abortions, I think, are wrong. I think you should have a period of time as a matter of law, maybe 16 weeks, 17 weeks.”
