Gosnell found guilty of 3 murders outside womb

WASHINGTON (BP) – A Philadelphia jury has found Kermit Gosnell guilty of the first-degree murder of three babies killed outside the womb at his abortion clinic. The jury returned the verdicts May 13 after deliberating for nearly two weeks. Among more than 250 charges, Gosnell faced four counts of first-degree murder of children who were born after induced delivery. The panel also found Gosnell guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of a Virginia woman during an abortion. Prosecutors had brought a third-degree murder charge against the doctor in the death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41. Gosnell, 72, could receive the death penalty for first-degree murder. Pro-life organizations welcomed the verdicts. Anna Higgins, director of the Family Research Council’s Center for Human Dignity, said they bring “a just conclusion to a horrific case.”
