Pearl Gosnell entered guilty pleas in federal court on charges of participating in an illegal late-term abortion, conspiracy, and participating in a corrupt organization.

Gosnell’s husband was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of first-degree murder in the killing of seven viable preborn children and the death of a woman who underwent a botched abortion.

Gosnell, who has no formal obstetrical training, has been accused of delivering viable children alive in the sixth, seventh, and eighth months of pregnancy. He then allegedly killed the children by using a scissors to sever their spinal cords.

Federal prosecutors described Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic as a “house of horrors.” Investigators discovered the remains of aborted children in milk jugs and cat food containers. They also found shelves lined with jars containing the severed feet of unborn children. They also found blood-stained floors and furniture, and said the facility smelled of urine.

Gosnell’s wife acknowledged that she assisted Gosnell with abortions on Sundays. She admitted that she “helped do the instruments” in the operating room despite having no medical training. Pearl Gosnell joins six other employees who have plead guilty to various charges involving the late-term abortion mill.

One of those employees, Tina Baldwin, plead guilty to having her fifteen year-old daughter administer anesthetics to women receiving abortions despite the fact that neither one had any medical training.

Yet another employee who plead guilty, Lynda Williams, was hired by Gosnell to clean operating room instruments. Soon she was performing ultrasounds and anesthetizing abortion patients. She was charged with administering lethal doses of Demerol and other drugs to Karnamaya Mongar, who died of cardiac arrest.

LifeNews.com reports that one of the legislators, Pennsylvania State Representative Margo Davidson (D-Upper Darby), offered some personal testimony during the debate. Representative Davidson shared that her 22-year old cousin, Semika Shaw, died as a result of another botched abortion at Gosnell’s clinic.

This is why it is so very important to support legislation to require that abortion clinics in Illinois meet basic safety regulations of other similar outpatient treatment centers.  (They have never been regulated.)
