Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell has agreed to serve two life terms without parole after his conviction on Monday for killing babies born alive after abortions. Life Dynamics has released an interview of abortion clinic workers indicating late-term abortionists such as Gosnell aren't rare.
Life Dynamics founder Mark Crutcher has interviewed workers at another clinic - not Gosnell's. The women were not trained personnel but office clerks who assisted the as-yet-unidentified abortionist in the operating room.
One of three employees who were interviewed revealed how that abortionist would kill babies who were born alive. "When he did an abortion - especially an over-20-week abortion - most of the time the fetus would come completely out before he would either cut the spinal cord or he introduced one of the instruments into the soft spot," she said.
According to Crutcher, the graphic, 14-minute video reveals what the pro-life movement has been saying for years. (Caution: Video contains very graphic material)
"People need to understand, contrary to what the abortion lobby's out here saying and contrary to what their lackeys in the secular media are out here saying about this being an anomaly, a one-time kind of thing and Gosnell's the oddball and all that kind of stuff, it's not," says the pro-life activist. "Here's one right here and there are others out there, believe me."
In light of Gosnell's murder conviction, Crutcher believes other late-term abortion workers around the country will be contacting authorities too because they do not want to be criminally liable.
Ironic ... Gosnell 'chose life'
In a Tuesday afternoon interview with OneNewsNow, Troy Newman of Operation Rescue reacted to the news of Gosnell's sentencing. "Rather than appeal and draw this case out and then face the possibility of a death sentence hearing, he actually chose life and decided to go ahead and take the plea bargain of two life sentences without parole."
Newman is delighted that the 72-year-old Gosnell agreed to the sentence. "And so even for a convicted murderer like Gosnell, we pray that he would spend the rest of his life contemplating the deeds that he did and prayerfully repenting for these sins, these crimes against humanity," he offers.
Newman points out that God's grace is available to a murderer like Gosnell "if he chooses to receive that free gift."
Like Newman, Maria Gallagher of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation believes in redemption. "I would hope that Kermit Gosnell understands what he did to those babies, to those women, and to those families," she says. "And I hope that at some point he admits what he did ... and that he comes out strongly against legalized abortion because this is a horror in our midst."
A grand jury report that precipitated the Gosnell investigation claimed the abortionist had perhaps killed hundreds of babies in a similar fashion. That led to a shakeup in Pennsylvania's state health department.
Gallagher tells OneNewsNow the case led to a new clinic regulation and inspection law. "There are other states where that is not the case, so we need stricter scrutiny of abortion facilities, period," she adds. "We know that nail salons and hair salons have gotten more attention from authorities ... and this is just not right."
