This is the story of Kermit Gosnell. Further, Planned Parenthood, which is funded by your tax dollars has argued to amend the laws to make Gosnell’s actions legal. Read both stories and decide whether you should keep funding Planned Parenthood.
I’m very sensitive about this kind of crime. I have two twin granddaughter who were born three months early. They spent two months in the neo-natal unit at Northwestern  Hospital.  They are thirteen and healthy, smart, athletic, and beautiful young ladies. To think people like Gosnell, with government funding are killing babies like my granddaughters in the name of planned parenthood sickens me.

 

Kermit Gosnell trial: Former clinic worker claims babies were breathing
April 18, 2013 – 02:47 pm

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – A former abortion  clinic worker capped the five-week murder trial of her former boss with powerful  testimony that she saw more than 10 babies breathe before they were killed.

Kermit  Gosnell abortion trial: Philadelphia doctor testifies

“I thought they were breathing,” Kareema Cross testified  Thursday, explaining that she saw their chests go up and down. “He would say  they’re not really breathing,”

Cross, 28, is the final prosecution witness in the capital murder case  against Dr. Kermit Gosnell. He is charged in the deaths of a patient and seven  babies allegedly born alive.

Cross also described seeing three babies move, one after being born in a  toilet, and heard a fourth give a “soft whine.”

Cross, who worked at the clinic from 2005 to 2009, was so disturbed by its  operation that she took photos and called authorities, although she gave a  relative’s name.

A 2011 grand jury report blasts state and city officials for failing to  inspect or shutter Gosnell’s busy clinic in West Philadelphia. A 2010 FBI raid  over Gosnell’s separate pain  management practice ultimately led to its closure.

The defense has denied that babies were born alive, and Cross is sure to face  strenuous questioning Thursday afternoon from Gosnell’s lawyer,  Jack McMahon.

Her direct testimony encompassed many of the charges against Gosnell and nine  co-defendants.

She admitted that she studied only to be a medical  assistant, but performed ultrasounds, gave anesthesia drugs and helped  perform abortions.

She said she routinely saw Gosnell abort babies who were past the state’s  24-week abortion limit. She said staff left late-term patients alone on the  second floor after they’d been given painkillers and potent drugs to induce  labor, and said some even stayed overnight unattended in a makeshift bedroom.

She said Gosnell and others snipped the backs of the babies’ necks after they  were born, and sometimes removed the brain through the opening. And she  described the clinic as filthy and the equipment as outdated.

One of her photographs, shown to jurors on a large screen, shows the fetal  feet Gosnell kept in specimen jars, allegedly for DNA purposes.

Another photograph, taken by a co-worker, showed “the largest baby she had  ever seen” aborted at the clinic.

The jury has seen the disturbing picture before, and heard from the boy’s  then-teenage mother. The baby’s gestational age has been estimated by some to be  nearly 30 weeks.

The teen mother was asleep when the baby came out, and Gosnell put the body  in a container the size of a shoe box, Cross testified. The baby drew in its  arms and legs and curled up inside in a fetal position, she said.

In a line the jury has also heard before, she recalled Gosnell saying, “The  baby’s big enough that it could walk to the store, walk to the bus.”

Cross has pleaded guilty to federal drug charges for administering  medications at the clinic, and hopes to get probation for her  cooperation.

Bill,

As America recoils from the horror of the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, let’s not forget a crucial fact:

Planned Parenthood has argued in the Florida legislature for the “right” to do what Gosnell did — kill a child after it’s born, if the mother and doctor agree.

Astounding.

Even more astounding is the fact that American taxpayers subsidize Planned Parenthood, providing roughly half its budget.

At the ACLJ, we are fighting Planned Parenthood on multiple fronts – filing briefs supporting states that defund Planned Parenthood, directly suing Planned Parenthood for fraud, and working tirelessly in Washington and elsewhere to persuade legislators to cut off all taxpayer funding.

We need your help.  Let Congress and the President know that you don’t want a single taxpayer dollar to go to an organization that aborts hundreds of thousands of unborn children and fights for the right to abort even after a baby is born.

Sign Our Petition to Defund Planned Parenthood.

Jay Sekulow ACLJ Chief Counsel
