The abortion doctor

a Pennsylvania abortion doctor is being charged with murder, because he used unqualified staff and they oversedated a woman and she died.

This is very serious malpractice, but it wasn't the only case of severe malpractice. So why was this guy still licensed?

State regulators ignored complaints about him and failed to inspect his clinic since 1993...Gosnell "induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord,"....

The grand jury said the woman who died was a patient who came to Gosnell's clinic for an abortion and died of cardiac arrest because she was given too much Demerol. Gosnell wasn't at the clinic at the time, but directed his staff to administer the drug to keep the woman, a healthy 41-year-old named Karnamaya Mongar, sedated until he arrived, prosecutors said.

Gosnell has been named in at least 46 malpractice suits, including one over the death of a 22-year-old mother who died of sepsis and a perforated uterus in 2000. Many others also involve perforated uteruses. Gosnell sometimes sewed up the injury without telling women their uteruses had been perforated, prosecutors said.

so now we in the Philippines know what to look forward to...


  • "The truth is what 'Doctor' Gosnell did is no different than what is done in every procured abortion."
