A Delaware woman who worked for abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell recalled hearing one child “screaming” after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure at Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic.
Sherry West, of Bear, said she was loyal to Gosnell – who is now facing multiple counts of murder for allegedly killing children after they were delivered alive at his clinic – but said the incident “really freaked me out.”
When Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore pressed the 53-year-old West for specifics about the incident, West struggled to answer, clearly uncomfortable with the memory.
“I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien,” West testified, telling a judge and Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas jury that the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.
Gosnell is accused of delivering babies alive and killing them by snipping their spinal cords with scissors.
Barack Obama voted against a bill designed to protect infants born alive — and, when called on it, “misrepresented the facts” to make it sound like abortion-related concerns were implicated by the bill. Not so, says the Washington Post‘s left-leaning and partisan fact checker.
You won’t be hearing about Kermit Gosnell from Barack Obama. (Nor, for that matter, will you be hearing him talk about the Newtown parent who opposes gun control.) Obama haughtily says we need to “make it a little harder for our kids to get gunned down” — but he does not care a whit for babies born alive to moms who tried to abort them.
UPDATE: A search reveals no story about Gosnell in the Los Angeles Times for at least the past year.
