After 10 days of deliberation, the jury found abortionist Kermit Gosnell guilty of capital murder for killing babies a few moments after they were born, as opposed to his usual practice of killing them a few moments before they were born, which is legal.
From the Washington Post:
Abortion provider Kermit Gosnell was convicted Monday of three counts of first-degree murder for severing the spinal cords of infants born during abortions at his West Philadelphia clinic.
Gosnell also was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of 41-year-old Virginia woman Karnamaya Mongar, who died from an overdose of drugs while undergoing an abortion at the clinic. Prosecutors described the clinic as a “house of horrors” because of the unsanitary conditions and unsafe practices that defined it.
The trial now moves into a sentencing phase to decide whether Gosnell should receive the death penalty or face life in prison on the capital murder counts.
In reporting the verdict, the New York Times and the Associated Press calls the infants murdered after they were born “fetuses”!
