SILK PURSE FROM SOW’S EAR: Gosnell’s Abortion Center Will Now Serve the Poor as a Food Pantry

A clinic where infamous abortionist Kermit Gosnell once reportedly killed born-alive infants has been given new life.

Gosnell has been stripped of his medical license and imprisoned with no chance of parole, after being found guilty of three murder charges, 21 felony count of illegal late-term abortion, and 211 counts of violating the 24-hour informed consent law.  The former Philadelphia abortionist waived his right of appeal, in exchange for an agreement not to seek the death penalty.

The Grand Jury report said of the case:

“This case is about a doctor who killed babies and endangered women. What we mean is that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable babies in the third trimester of pregnancy – and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors.  The medical practice by which he carried out this business was a filthy fraud in which he overdosed his patients with dangerous drugs, spread venereal disease among them with infected instruments, perforated their wombs and bowels – and, on at least two occasions, caused their deaths.”

Now some good will come from one of the centers where so many pre-born babies lost their lives.  That’s because Gosnell’s former clinic in Wilmington, Delaware is being transformed into a food pantry.   Cher Frampton, spokesperson for the nonprofit Lutheran Community Services, announced this week in an interview on WDEL that the organization has purchased the now-shuttered Atlantic Women’s Medical Services building.

According to The Blaze, Frampton said of the new center,

“It has a bit of history. Kermit Gosnell was one of the doctors practicing there…. We’re taking this negative and turning it into a positive for the community there.  We’ll be able to provide emergency food, housing assistance, clothing.”  

It was at Gosnell’s Philadelphia center, the Women’s Medical Society, where a police investigation revealed a dirty, malodorous crime scene with filthy tables and equipment and blood-stained floors, refrigerators full of aborted babies, and Gosnell’s personal collection of newborns’ severed feet.  In addition to that center, Gosnell also performed abortions out of two clinics in Delaware, including the Atlantic Women’s Medical Services building.

Lutheran Community Services plans to bless the building before moving in and cleaning it out.  They hope to open the food pantry to serve the poor and needy sometime in the fall.

A new documentary is being produced about Gosnell’s crimes.  The film, 3801 Lancaster: Part II, will expose the horrors which occurred at his grimy Philadelphia clinic.

    i think this is a little creepy, that building should be destroyed and a new one built instead of feeding people in the same building where all those murders happened
