It’s likely that he was the cheapest abortion provider around in a community that’s not accustomed to the highest health-care standards anyway.As if that is supposed to justify the fact that "Dr." Gosnell was committing late-term abortions (beyond 24 weeks) and since the procedure would be rather difficult, he would induce labor then the child is born, ALIVE, and (in his terms) to "ensure fetal demise" he would stab into the baby's neck with a pair of scissors and cut the spinal cord. Some report are that the babies are literally screaming in agony while he is doing this.
This is NOT about Roe v. Wade, it's about MURDER. It is also about a "doctor" running a "clinic" in unhealthy, unsanitary conditions and with a staff which. while administering "medicines" and other duties which normally would have been provided by a Registered Nurse, NONE of them were licensed to practice medicine. The staff is facing charges as well.
Also in this article it includes a brief summary of the Report of the Grand Jury (which formally charged Gosnell on January 20, 2013) with these points:
- Fetuses, fetal remains and dismembered baby parts — especially, for some reason, baby feet — in bags, jars, milk jugs and cat-food containers kept around the clinic, in the freezer and in the basement; some containers were stored in the same refrigerator where clinic staff kept their lunches
- Instruments that were not properly sterilized or discarded, which allegedly spread venereal disease to several patients
- Cats roaming and excreting freely in the filthy clinic
Why was Gosnell "saving" these things, and especially "baby feet" - were these some sort of "trophies" for him?
It seems not always did Gosnell (I think I'll stop using "Dr." in his title) induce labor to remove the child from the mother as there are charges of "failure to remove all the fetal parts from a uterus, his puncturing a uterus, tearing a cervix and colon, and refusing to call in assistance from another hospital when a patient convulsed and fell on the floor."
Time's reporter, Belinda Luscombe, continues to describe "At least one woman, Karnamaya Mongar, 41, died in Gosnell’s care, after his untrained staff administered an overdose of Demerol" and then in the next paragraph goes back to saying this case has "much more to do with poverty than Roe v. Wade" and then provides another link on "The Complicated Link Between Abortion and Mental Health".
In short, it seems to this writer that Time Magazine is attempting to do some "damage control" because of their lack of coverage. Yes, the report defends that several outlets reported this back in 2011 - ONCE - but then we look at the sensationalism of the Jody Arias trial we have to ask WHY? Some outlets are beginning to give a bit more coverage, but not nearly in the proportion the Arias Trial is getting.
