    Stop playing these games, in no way what this guy did give any credence to an argument for making abortion illegal. Because he wasn't preforming abortions, he was murdering children, and no pro-choice person is for that, obviously, and to suggest otherwise is just silly.

    Try this bastard, and give him the worst possible punishment, and anyone who helped him as well.

    Thank you for saying something. And it's not a game.... it's painfully obvious how many people are ignoring this topic.

    And the question was.... do you think there are more abortion doctors out there like Gosnell? And if so, what do we need to do about it?

    What would be your "perfect world" approach to abortion? No restrictions at all? Or some? What would they be?
    I think anytime roadblocks are put in place in order to stop women from having abortions, the dynamics are put in place to create more "Gosnells." These roadblocks include closing down clinics, wait times and sonograms. There will always be an enterprising person willing to forgo those restrictions.

    There are criminals in every field of medical practice, like plastic surgery Unqualified plastic surgeon Peter Normann guilty of killing 3 in botched liposuction | Mail Online, dentistry Thousands of Oklahoma patients urged to get tested for HIV, hepatitis after investigation shows dirty instruments in use | Fox News, manufacture of medicines, Fungal meningitis outbreak tied to steroid shots isn't the first, reports show - Vitals

    Chance are there could be more like Gosnell and it would willfully ignorant to suggest there aren't. We have to count on inspections and people reporting criminal activity to the authorities. There were multiple failures by agencies that should have closed him down long ago.

    The answer, as with other state agencies which fail in their job to protect citizens from criminals, is prosecute, clean out make people do their jobs. Not to further restrict abortion.

I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too.

    Killing children is exactly what abortion is, and it is exactly what those on the “pro-choice” side defend. Dr. Gosnell is no more evil than all other abortionists, and all others who defend and support them.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Other than recognizing the obvious truth of what abortion is, and treating every instance of it in the manner appropriate to a crime of that magnitude, what is there to do about those like Dr. Gosnell? When an innocent child is murdered, does it really matter in the least whether this murder was carried out in the nice, neat, orderly manner of a “legitimate” abortionist rather than in the sloppy, gruesome manner of Dr. Gosnell? Either way, the result is the same—an innocent child has been killed, who ought to have been allowed to live. All abortionists are murderers of the very worst, very most evil sort, and all of them belong in prison, on death row. Dr. Gosnell is no better or worse than any other abortionist.

    But the question should have been "do you think there are more doctors out there like Gosnell?" This is a gross case of medical malpractice and negligent homicide by an unlicensed practitioner passing himself off as a physician. There are been all too many phony doctors, using contaminated equipment and procedures they are not competent to perform. Off the top of my head I can think of two "plastic surgeons" and several "general practitioners" who went on for years before wreaking enough distruction to come to the attention of law enforcement. Most of those stories were barely blips on cable news radar.

    I'm going out on a limb here, but I suspect that if Gosnell had been doing any kind of criminally negligent procedure other than abortion, this thread would not exist. Just calling it like I see it.

    Well, cutting off the heads of newborn babies does put a different spin on it, doesn't it?

    Not unless the only reason this filthy piece of crap is important is because he performed abortions, rather than other procedures. The debate over when late-term abortions should be performed and under which circumstances is a discussion for another thread, and is in my mind too important to hitch onto someone everyone can agree is guilty of several crimes, not the least of which is practicing without a license.
