The Racism of Abortion Doc #Gosnell

Outraged by the grisly details of late-term abortions in Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s clinic, a group of black pastors is coming to Capitol Hill on Tuesday to ask for congressional hearings into the impact of abortion in black communities.

Political activist Star Parker and about a dozen black pastors are scheduled to speak at the National Press Club Tuesday morning about Dr. Gosnell’s murder trial and the high levels of abortions and abortion clinics in black communities.

Gosnell was convicted on multiple counts of murder — killing children born alive and one adult patient.

It’s important for blacks to speak up “because Kermit Gosnell is black, and this is a matter of black-on-black crime,” said Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union.

These “heinous activities” are happening in communities all over the country, she said, and Congress should make sure inspections are performed and “people are held accountable.”

From the Gosnell Grand Jury Report and Other Sources:


*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

*Gosnell routinely cracked jokes about babies whose necks he had just slit. He treated his patients with condescension – slapping them, providing abysmal care, and often refusing even to see or talk to them – unless they were Caucasian, or had money. He yelled at and intimidated his staff. And he took advantage of poor women in desperate

For two decades, state authorities and, to a lesser degree, city health officials ignored complaints and red flags. The grand jury concluded this inaction was “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 (3)


• In 1972, Gosnell made national headlines –and prompted a federal investigation –for using an experimental abortion inducing device similar to an IUD on 15 low-income women, nine of whom developed serious complications. Dr. Gosnell was never charged in those cases. (2) he played a prominent role in a scandal over an experimental abortion tool called “the super coil,” designed for use in the second trimester. California psychologist and activist Harvey Karman had developed the coil. Gosnell tested it on 15 poor women who had taken a bus from Chicago on Mother’s Day weekend because they couldn’t get abortions elsewhere. Federal and city health officials later found that nine of the women had suffered serious complications, including a punctured uterus. One needed a hysterectomy.

PHOTOGRAPHING WOMEN: from Liberia and other African countries who had undergone clitorodectomies

• Gosnell took photographs of his patients’ genitalia before procedures according to the grand jury report, “Gosnell engaged in other practices with patients that defy any medical or even common-sense explanation. Steven Massof testified that the doctor would often photograph women’s genitalia before he performed their abortions. According to Massof, Gosnell told him that he was photographing women from Liberia and other African countries who had undergone clitorodectomies, the surgical removal of the clitoris. In his curriculum vitae, Gosnell described this activity as “clinical research: clitoral surgery patients – cultural and functional realities.” There is no evidence, however, that the doctor obtained the necessary permissions to engage in human experimentation. Massof said that Gosnell took pictures of women, and of fetuses, with a digital camera and with his phone. Gosnell told Massof that he was taking the photographs for “his teaching,” but Massof said that he was unaware that Gosnell taught anywhere. Gosnell would often show the photographs to Massof and exclaim about the skill of the surgeons who had sewn the women’s labia together, leaving only a small opening allow menstrual flow.” ( Grand Jury Report) …For more on the sexual abuse of women inside abortion clinics order Lime 5, all you pay for the book is shipping when ordered by the case.
Gosnell treated women differently, based on their race


• Tina Baldwin testified that Gosnell treated women differently, based on their race.
• White women “with money” were taken to an “immaculate” upstairs room where Gosnell treated them personally.
• Poor black, Latino and other women were kept in the clinic’s dingy, dirty downstairs rooms, and were usually treated by medically unqualified staff.
• Tina Baldwin said she asked Gosnell about why he treated white women differently from the others. She recalled him saying, “Sorry, but that’s how it is.”


• *Only in one class of cases did Gosnell exercise any real care with dangerous sedatives. On those rare occasions when the patient was a white woman from the suburbs, Gosnell insisted that he be consulted at every step. When an employee asked him why, he said it was “the way of the world.”
Tina Baldwin
• “Nine out of 10 times, if the patient was white … he didn’t want me to (administer the drugs), because he wanted to meet with them himself,” she said. Gosnell, who is black, would apologize to his mostly black staff, but say “that’s the way it is,” Tina Baldwin testified.


• *Even when Gosnell was in the building, he did not oversee the administration of
anesthesia – except when the patient was white.
• Tina Baldwin told the Grand Jury that the untrained medical assistants, without supervision by Gosnell, routinely administered even the final dose of sedation just before the procedure – unless the patient was white. She testified:
• one person in one room, you were in the other room you were setting that patient up to be done when he’s done because it was just a back and forth thing. You would go ahead and medicate this person before he gets in the room.
• Q: Okay. Was he present when you did that medication?
• A: No, no. And sometimes he asked them – but it was a race thing.
• Q: What do you mean?
• A: It was – he sometimes he used to – okay. Like if a girl – the black population was – African population was big here. So he didn’t mind you medicating your African girls, your Indian girl, but if you had a white girl from the suburbs, oh, you better not medicate her. You better wait until he go in and talk to her first. And one day I said something to him and he was like, that’s the way of the world. Huh? And he brushed it off and that was it.
• Tina Baldwin also testified that white patients often did not have to wait in the
• same dirty rooms as black and Asian clients. Instead, Gosnell would escort them up the back steps to the only clean office – Dr. O’Neill’s – and he would turn on the TV for them. Mrs. Mongar, she said, would have been treated “no different from the rest of the Africans and Asians.”
