Kermit Gosnell

Kermit Gosnell, the notorious Philadelphia abortionist who was convicted of first-degree murder after the revelation of evidence and eyewitness testimony that he had the sadistic habit of murdering babies born alive after his failed shoddy abortions, is coming back into the public eye for the first time since being sentenced to three life terms in prison several months ago. Philadelphia magazine writer Steve Volk is covering the inside scoop on Gosnell’s demented psyche in a forthcoming piece entitled Gosnell’s Babies (to appear in the October issue of the magazine). According to a September 23 piece on the story,

Over the course of several weeks this summer, Volk received 12 letters from Gosnell, more than 50 emails, and more than two dozen phone calls. Gosnell also sent several poems he’s written, including one dated April 2013.

That’s right, poems. Readers got a taste of what’s to come with the publication of this Gosnell submission, entitled Abortion Providers: 

Abortion Providers

Are Labeled Killers!
Horrendous, Exploitive
Barbaric, Inhumane
Not Physicians, Oathed To Heal
Lest We Forget,
What Chance Have Those?
Those Without The Support
Of Their Parents
Their Families
Their Communities
Their Societies …
So Many
Without Sufficient Support
Stumble Into Drugs
Into Crime
Into Mental Illness
Into Institutions … And …
Languish in Jails …

Gosnell is “languishing” in jail for much more than his abortion practices, however. Although he was convicted of over two hundred counts of violating Pennsylvania’s Abortion Control Act, the reason why he is in prison extends far beyond the fact that he was an abortionist, which is –unfortunately– legal. The reason Gosnell is serving three life terms in prison, in addition to those hundreds of violations, is because he murdered babies who were alive and well after he failed in his attempts to abort them while in utero, and he caused the death mothers, like Karnamaya Mongar, who obtained abortions from him. Additionally he plead guilty to running a drug pill mill. Nevertheless, Kermit Gosnell insists today that he is “spiritually innocent” — whatever that means to him.
