    First degree murder in abortion case.

    Philadelphia (CNN) -- A jury Monday found a Philadelphia abortion provider guilty of three counts of first-degree murder.

    Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, was accused of killing babies by using scissors to cut their spinal cords. Authorities alleged that some of the infants were born alive and viable during the sixth, seventh and eighth months of pregnancy.

    Monday's first-degree murder conviction means Gosnell, who is not a board-certified obstetrician or gynecologist, could be sentenced to death.

    Gosnell also was accused in the death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41, who died of an anesthetic overdose during a second-trimester abortion at his West Philadelphia clinic. In that case, the jury found him guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

    Gosnell was also found guilty of 21 counts of abortion of the unborn, 24 weeks or older.

    In Pennsylvania, abortions past 24 weeks are illegal unless the health of the mother is at stake.

    See? Accountability happened.



    Tragic events that cannot be undone but, at least this guy will pay with his life. Either locked up for the rest of it or executed.

    A little justice is a good thing.

    Question: if he's not board-certified, what exactly is he a "Dr" of...?

    Lots of bad doctors out there.  Would that we could catch them all.

    There are lots of people with doctorates outside of the medical field. He was not certified to perform abortions.

    It is disturbing reading the list of infractions, health code violations, fraud (including running a "pill mill", among other things that he was allowed to operate his facility for so long even though there had been numerous complaints.  The state of Pennsylvania failed its citizens and while I wholeharted agree that the doctor deserves his sentence I beleive there should be a line forming of relevant agency heads and others whose job it is to police these activities and they should be tried for crimes of negligence and if that is beyond the ability of the state, those people should be fired. 

    There are some parallels to the kidnapping case in Cleveland where again, a sadistic criminal was allowed to operate for years, despite alarms being sounded and again no one did anything.  Again, we see these horrific events happening in a run down and blighted area where only the poor live and no one raised a finger to help protect them from the predators in their midst.  Truly disgusting.
