Dr. Kermit Gosnell: Philadelphia Abortion Doctor Is a Modern Day Dr. Joseph Mengele

Regardless of what side of the fence you sit on with regards to abortions, this story is about as disgusting as they get.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortion doctor has gone off the deep end and crossed into the territory of the likes of Joseph Mengele, the infamous doctor who served Adolph Hitler and performed evil experiments upon children.

Kermit Gosnell is charged with the murder of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar who allegedly overdosed on anesthetics prescribed by Gosnell. Furthermore, Gosnell is charged with the murders of seven newborn babies, who were born in their 6th, 7th, and 8th months of pregnancy.

These were live babies, not one-month or two-month old babies. And, Gosnell murdered them by severing their spinal cords with scissors.

Yours truly is about as pro choice as they get, but even I understand how barbaric partial-birth abortion is. These seven babies could very well have lived under normal circumstances. It's one thing (not that I'd defend that either) if he was performing these abortions because these womens' lives were at stake, but he did it solely for profit.

Gosnell, who ran a high-volume late-term abortion operation was also a "quack" or a "croaker" if you will. His other operation entailed illegally distributing illicit medication to his customers. He reportedly sold thousands of oxycontin pills to patients he never examined. This story gets even more disturbing though.

According to accounts by police, Gosnell's clinic resembled a house of horrors bringing back memories of Gary Heidnik's dungeon from the 1980's. Inside the clinic, FBI and DEA agents discovered wretched conditions, which included jars packed with severed baby feet along the shelves. They also found bags and bottles of aborted fetuses scattered throughout the office. The furniture and floors throughout were stained with blood and unlicensed employees regularly injected sedatives into women who were having illegal late-term abortions.

Being a doctor is a great privilege in America. And, Dr. Kermit Gosnell not only exploited that privilege, but he crossed over to the sordid, dark side reserved for serial killers. Kermit Gosnell is a mass murderer and a modern day Dr. Joseph Mengele.
