“Safe, Rare & Legal”

Here’s a snippet from the grand jury report from the Gosnell case: ” … His 17-year-old mother was almost 30 weeks pregnant – seven and a half months – when labor was induced.  An employee estimated his birth weight as approaching six pounds.  He was breathing and moving when Dr. Gosnell severed his spine and put the body in a plastic shoebox for disposal.  The doctor joked that this baby was so big he  could ‘walk me to the bus stop.’ ”

Gosnell’s defense attorney, Jack McMahon, says that the prosecution is racially motivated. “This is a targeted, elitist and racist prosecution of a doctor who’s done nothing but give (back) to the poor and the people of West Philadelphia…It’s a prosecutorial lynching of Dr. Kermit Gosnell.”

My daughter only weighed 5.5 lbs at 32 weeks and spent 10 days in the NICU.
