Gosnell employee MOTON

Confession: Adrienne Moton, 35, testified that Dr Kermitt Gosnell had taught her how to snip the necks of newborns during late-term abortions
A medical assistant told a jury Tuesday that she snipped the spines of at least 10 babies during unorthodox late-term abortions at a West Philadelphia clinic.

Adrienne Moton’s testimony as part of her guilty plea to third-degree murder, came in the capital murder trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the clinic owner, who is on trial in the deaths of a patient and seven babies.

Prosecutors accuse him of killing late-term, viable babies after they were delivered alive, in violation of state abortion laws.

Moton, the first employee to testify, sobbed as she recalled taking a cell phone photograph of one baby left in her work area. She thought he could have survived, given his size and pinkish color. She had measured him at nearly 30 weeks.

‘The aunt felt it was just best for her [the mother’s] future,’ Moton testified.

Gosnell later joked that the baby was so big he could have walked to the bus stop, she said.

Jurors saw Moton’s photograph of the baby on a large screen in the courtroom, which took on a bizarre look Tuesday as she testified near a hospital bed with stirrups and other aging obstetric equipment.

She once had to kill a baby delivered in a toilet, cutting its neck with scissors, she said. Asked if she knew that was wrong, she said, ‘At first I didn’t.’

Moton has pleaded guilty to third-degree murder, which carries a 20- to 40-year term, as well as conspiracy and other charges.

From the grand jury report of PA abortionist Kermit Gosnell whose employees, Kareema Cross, described one “dreaded complication” a 30 week baby that survived the abortion: the baby is referred to as Baby A: “After the baby was expelled, Cross noticed that he was breathing, though not for long. After about 10 to 20 seconds, while the mother was asleep, “the doctor just slit the neck,” said Cross. Gosnell put the boy’s body in a shoebox. Cross described the baby as so big that his feet and arms hung out over the sides of the container. Cross said that she saw the baby move after his neck was cut, and after the doctor placed it in the shoebox. Gosnell told her, “it’s the baby’s reflexes. It’s not really moving.”

According to the report, the Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society clinic was a ‘baby charnel house’ crawling with cats and reeking of animal urine and feces.

Furniture and blankets were stained with blood and instruments were not properly sterilized.

Disposable medical supplies were also reused while vital medical equipment such as the defibrillator and EKG machine were ‘generally broken’.

Disturbingly, the report alleges that fetal remains were stuffed into: ‘cabinets, in the basement, in a freezer, in jars and bags and plastic jugs’.

Tiny baby feet, it is claimed, were discovered in specimen jars, lined up in a macabre collection.

It’s one of the macabre mysteries in the case of Kermit Gosnell: Why did the West Philadelphia abortion doctor keep the severed feet of fetuses preserved in specimen jars?

In testimony Tuesday, Adrienne Moton, a former worker at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society, told a Philadelphia jury that Gosnell once explained that he did so in case patients requested them for future identification or DNA samples.

But an expert on fetal development, testifying Wednesday at Gosnell’s abortion-murder trial, said that was news to him.

“Do you think there is any medical reason to save the foot of a baby?” Assistant District Attorney Edward Cameron asked.

“In my practice, we would have no reason to save the foot, and I’ve never seen that done,” replied Daniel H. Conway, a physician and neonatologist at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children.

WED: Gosnell abortion-murder trial focuses on jars of preserved fetus feet

Questioned by Gosnell attorney Jack McMahon, Conway acknowledged that the creases on the bottom of the foot are one factor sometimes used to determine the age of a stillborn or premature baby.

But Conway maintained he had never heard of physicians or researchers preserving and saving severed fetal feet.

Prosecutors have cited the dozens of jars of severed baby feet as an example of Gosnell’s idiosyncratic and illegal practice of providing abortions for cash to poor women pregnant longer than the 24-week cutoff for legal abortions in Pennsylvania.

In her opening statement to the Common Pleas Court jury, Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore mused that the jars of feet were some kind of bizarre “trophy” Gosnell kept.
