A massive, photograph-laden Grand Jury Report released Wednesday has detailed the bone-chilling practices of a Philadelphia abortionist, who clinic workers testified had delivered “hundreds” of living, breathing newborn children before severing their spinal cords or slitting their necks to complete the abortions.

Abortionist Kermit Gosnell was arrested Wednesday for eight counts of murder. One of the charges was for the botched-abortion death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar, a Nepalese refugee. The other seven were for children who police had discovered, by examining their remains, had been born alive and then killed.

District Attorney R. Seth Williams released the 281-page report that was the basis for the murder charges against Gosnell and nine of his associates. Included in that report were photos of some of Gosnell’s victims.

In the report, the Grand Jury notes that several agencies and groups became aware of what has become known as Gosnell’s “shop of horrors,” but did nothing. They also provide extremely explicit descriptions of botched abortions, late-term abortions and infanticides rarely seen in court documents.

workers testified Dr. Kermit Gosnell delivered “hundreds” of living, breathing newborn children before severing their spinal cords or slitting their necks to complete the abortions.

“Pennsylvania law requires physicians to provide customary care for living babies outside the womb. Gosnell chose instead to slit their necks and store their bodies in various household containers, as if they were trash,” stated the report.

The report provided detailed testimony from clinic staff who said that “killing large, late-term babies who had been observed breathing and moving was a regular occurrence” at the filthy clinic: one staffer said such events happened “hundreds” of times.

Another clinic worker, Tina Baldwin, told the jurors that Gosnell once joked about a baby that was writhing as he cut its neck: “that’s what you call a chicken with its head cut off.”

According to clinic worker Kareema Cross, Gosnell resorted to regularly killing babies after birth because he was not skilled enough to kill the baby in utero with a digoxin injection, a usual means of late-term abortion.

The report noted that one unlicensed worker at the clinic attempted to justify Gosnell’s practice of cutting of the newborns’ spinal cords as a “partial-birth abortion.” The Grand Jury concluded that the two procedures were different, however, because sucking the brains out of the baby’s head in a partial-birth abortion occurred while the head was still inside the mother, and thus served to make delivery of the evacuated head easier, whereas Gosnell’s victims were killed “when there was clearly no need or medical reason to collapse the skull.”

The day after the death of Karnamaya Mongar, Gosnell had applied for membership to the National Abortion Federations, but failed to meet its requirements. Even though an NAF staff person spent several days in Gosnell’s abortion mill noting numerous violations, they failed to report him to the proper authorities, notes the document.

“Despite his various efforts to fool her, the evaluator from NAF readily noted that records were not properly kept, that risks were not explained, that patients were not monitored, that equipment was not available, that anesthesia was misused,” states the report. “Of course, she rejected Gosnell’s application. She just never told anyone in authority about all the horrible, dangerous things she had seen.”

While saying that “bureaucratic inertia is not exactly news,” the jurors said, “We think the reason no one acted is because the women in question were poor and of color, because the victims were infants without identities, and because the subject was the political football of abortion.”

The group also had a stern rebuke for regulatory organizations who looked the other way, giving their stamp of approval to his criminal practices.

The pro-life watchdog group Operation Rescue called for massive reforms in the way abortionists and abortion clinics are handled by regulatory agencies nationwide. Kermit Gosnell’s shop of horrors, they said, is certainly not the only abortion mill of this kind in operation in America.

“Operation Rescue calls for immediate emergency inspections of every abortion clinic in the nation. We have often said that if this were to ever happen, no abortion clinic would remain in operation because we have yet to discover one that adheres to all the laws that apply to them,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

“As the 38th memorial of Roe v. Wade approaches, it is time for Americans to consider the horrors of abortion and demand that government abolish this barbaric practice forever.”

  1. Here are some key comments others have posted on the LifeSiteNews.com website. They provide some valuable insights into this battle for the heart and soul of this country in striving to end this demonic practice:

    Why are we more appalled at the violence done after the birth of the child than the violence done to him in the womb? The severing of limbs in utero is no less gruesome than the slitting of a throat outside. The violence is just more hidden within the womb, masking the deed. The results are the same…a brutally murdered infant and a mother who will suffer the rest of her life because of her “choice”. This abortionist is no more guilty than any other. He is just more open about his brutality. ~ by nurseejohnson on Jan 21, 2011

    abortion should be outlawed because it is an act of murder. It kills a new individual. Whether the individual is killed inside the womb, outside the womb after birth, or at any later time: morally there is no difference; and logically one cannot seperate these cases. There is no pro abortion argument which cannot be also used to support infanticide. Plain and simple, if you don’t want a baby, don’t have sexual intercourse. Murder, even in the name of a few moments of pleasure is not the answer. ~ by Puragu on Jan 22, 2011

    The National Abortion Federation’s culpability goes far beyond the inspector’s failure to report his filthy mill. According to the Grand Jury Report, at least six of the hundreds of murders started at a National Abortion Federation member facility in Delaware.

    That NAF clinic would collect Gosnell’s fee for him and hand the patient over. There, at the NAF clinic, Gosnell would insert laminaria to start the abortion by dilating the mother’s cervix. Then, with the full knowledge of that NAF clinic, he would arrange to finish the job at his filthy Philadelphia mill.

    The murder of Baby Boy A was just one such murder, started in Delaware, finished in Pennsylvania.

    Why is the FBI not involved in investigating this interstate murder ring?
