    I can see this situation starting to change peoples perceptions about what it is that they are for.

    It is hard for me to imagine the whole thing. Here is a man who went through years of education and training to earn an MD degree and practice medicine. That is a very difficult thing to do. And instead of applying that training and skill to the betterment of the human condition, he hides a way in a filthy, rundown clinic, doing illegal abortions and even murders. Something went wrong somewhere. Before Roe V Wade, the people who did this weren't MD's. I have a difficult time with people supporting this. Tererun thinks it is OK to end a life simply because someone wants it to be so. Murderers murder because they want it to be so. Something went wrong somewhere.

    For Gosnell, it was the money. He ran a pill-mill by day, and this is what finally busted him. So greedy was he that he went to work on Sundays with only his wife to assist (including assisting in destroying records), and only God knows--unless his wife ever talks--what "challenging" medical events occurred on those Sundays.

The mothers are not willing to have or raise the child so they terminate the pregnancy. That will involve an early fetus that is still developing. The fetus doesn't just stop working because the mother chooses to abort. It is removed and that ends whatever cellular functions it has which cause it to be a living part of the mother. What you are claiming is that had he just left the glob on the floor to die it would not be murder, but because he made extra specially sure to help destroy the glob of cells and put a quick end to any functions that might be going on he becomes a murderer. It is an abortion and is not a murder. If you want to have strict and harsh penalties like in murder for abortion doctors who perform later term abortions then make those punishments into law. if you want to lump this in somewhere completely different i hope it gets turned over on appeals because it is a dangerous precedent and gives much more power to the government to try you for crimes you never committed.
    The murders he was convicted of involved 3 BABIES born alive. They were living human beings until the good doctor's scissors was used to sever their spinal chords. At which time they became dead human beings. Not dead globs of cells but dead human beings. This is a rather simple concept for most to grasp... killing another human being is murder. Maybe you have to be human first in order to understand?

    Gosnell's been given three life sentences with no hope of parole, more merciful sentences than he gave innocent babies whose only crime was being conceived. Here's a local link to what the jurors thought: Gosnell Sentenced to 3 Life Terms, Jurors Open Up | NBC 10 Philadelphia

    Its sad we have to go to local news to find any information on the sentencing, but the Jody Arias had national coverage for months

    Only way late term will stay legal if the pro choice keeps the truth about it from the public

    Re: Gosnell guilty of 3 counts of murder

    I was reading earlier today an AP article in which the hope was expressed that the Gosnell trial could be the beginning of a dialogue between both sides of the abortion issue:

    "The Gosnell case could serve as a fulcrum for more dialogue about abortion, said O. Carter Snead, a University of Notre Dame bioethicist and law professor.

    'I would hope that people on both sides of the abortion debate, after this Gosnell atrocity ... would sit down and say we have to find a way to talk about this.... The fact that we've got such a paralyzed political system when it comes to this question leads to attorneys general, governors and others not doing anything in the face of obvious harm to the public...This is a grotesque wakeup call for us to sit down and have a hard conversation about a very difficult question."

    And then I read that it's not just DC with another "house of horrors." There may be one in Houston too:
