Convicted abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell has been sentenced this week for running a pill mill out of his House of Horrors abortion clinic in Philadelphia.

DrKermitGosnell

Authorities say that the 72 year abortionist was motivated by money when he illegally dispensed narcotics, wrote fraudulent prescriptions for hundreds of thousands of prescription pills, allowed customers to purchase prescriptions under multiple names, took cash payment for the drugs and allowed customer’s to tip to the clinic’s staff.

In one case, the calloused abortionist took time to write 18 prescriptions for drugs the very night his patient lay dying from a botched abortion.

That women was 41 year-old Karnamaya Mongar, a refugee who had recently come to the United States from a resettlement camp in Nepal, when she arrived at Women’s Medical Society (WMS) “house of horrors” abortion clinic, owned by abortionist Kermit Gosnell.

Mongar was 19 weeks pregnant when she came in for her abortion on November 19, 2009. Before the procedure, Gosnell employee Lynda Williams gave Mongar one pill of Cytotec, a drug used to induce labor. Williams also assisted in administering local anesthesia. When Mongar complained of pain, Williams said she called Gosnell, who told her to administer a second round of local anesthesia

According to a report for the grand jury filed by the state’s district attorney, office workers had Mrs. Mongar sign various forms which she could not read, and then began doping her up. She received repeated unmonitored, unrecorded intravenous injections of Demerol. After several hours, Mrs. Mongar stopped breathing. When employees finally noticed, Gosnell was called in and briefly attempted to give CPR. He couldn’t use the defibrillator (it was broken); nor did he administer emergency medications that might have restarted her heart. After further crucial delay, paramedics arrived, but Mrs. Mongar was probably brain dead before they were even called.

In the meantime, the clinic staff hooked up machinery and rearranged her body to make it look like they had been in the midst of a routine, abortion procedure. Even then, there might have been some slim hope of reviving Mrs. Mongar.

The paramedics were able to generate a weak pulse. But, because of the cluttered hallways and the padlocked emergency door, it took them over twenty minutes just to find a way to get her out of the building.

Doctors at the hospital managed to keep her heart beating, but they never knew what they were trying to treat, because Gosnell and his staff lied about how much anesthesia they had given, and who had given it. By that point, there was no way to restore any neurological activity. As a result of the cardiac arrest, she had stopped breathing and suffered acute anoxic encephalopathy – brain damage due to a lack of oxygen.

Mrs. Mongar remained on life support until family members could make the trip from Virginia to say good-bye.

She was pronounced dead at 6:15 p.m. on November 20, 2009.

The medical examiner concluded that the acute anoxic encephalopathy resulted from the cardiac arrest, which itself had been caused “because somebody gave her a Demerol overdose.”

Gosnell was later arrested and charged with homicide in her death as well as the deaths of 7 babies he allegedly killed with scissors after they were born. Clinic worker, Sherry West, 52, has pleaded guilty to the charge, for her role in administering at least some of the fatal dose of Demerol.

What exactly was Gosnell doing the day Karnamaya Mongar died from her abortion? He was selling narcotics:

According to court documents, Defendants SHERRY L. WEST, TAMIRRAH M. FLUELLEN, and KAREEMA N. CROSS, along with Latosha R. Lewis, Earlene Tina Baldwin, and Lynda Gail Williams, assisted defendant KERMIT B. GOSNELL in operating GOSNELL’s pill mill operation.

Among other things, WMS office staff took customers’ orders for “refill” prescriptions for controlled substances in person, over the phone, or from an WMS office answering machine. These customer orders were for prescriptions for controlled substances with no legitimate medical purpose. Customers did not see or speak to GOSNELL in order to make their request for a “refill.” The WMS office staff recorded the orders for “refills” and gave them to GOSNELL.

NOVEMBER THE DAY OF DEATH:

On or about November 18, 2009, a customer referred to as “T.J.” called Gosnell employee, Latosha R. Lewis on Lewis’ cellular telephone to order prescriptions for controlled substances in several different customer names. T.J. and Lewis discussed several different possible customer names that T.J. could use to pick up prescriptions.

Lewis indicated that GOSNELL was not in the office that day and that the next possible day to pick up prescriptions was on November 20, 2009. Lewis then
gathered the customer charts for those customers along with a written order for controlled substances and gave those charts and the order to KERMIT B. GOSNELL.

Without seeing the customers, GOSNELL wrote the requested prescriptions for the controlled substances.

On or about November 20, 2009, T.J. called Latosha R. Lewis on her cellular telephone to ask whether the prescriptions were ready to be picked up. Lewis said that she had several of T.J.’s names ready to be picked up. Within minutes, T.J. went to WMS where Lewis sold T.J. at least 19 prescriptions written by defendant KERMIT B. GOSNELL in approximately 8 different names for controlled substances totaling approximately 300 tablets of OxyContin 80mg, 280 tablets of Percocet 10mg, 360 tablets of Xanax 1mg, and 20 ounces of Phenergan with Codeine. T.J. paid Lewis $20.00 per name totaling approximately $160.00 for the fee charged by defendant GOSNELL. At the end of Lewis’ shift, this $160.00 was given to defendant GOSNELL along with all of the other money gathered during Lewis’ shift. T.J. paid Lewis an additional tip which Lewis kept for herself.

Latosha Lewis worked at Gosnell’s abortion clinic for approximately eight years, beginning in 2000 and ending on February 18, 2010. (She left to work at another facility for a year in 2002, and took two maternity leaves.) Although she completed an eight-month program at the Thompson Institute, a for-profit vocational training institution in Philadelphia, she received no certificate or license that qualified her for her responsibilities at the abortion clinic. She was not trained or certified to perform ultrasounds, to administer medication, or to deliver babies – all jobs that Gosnell assigned to her.

Lewis was present the day the National Abortion Federation came to visit Gosnell’s clinic ( more on that here)

Lewis’s duties included conducting pre-exams and ultrasounds, drawing blood, administering Cytotec and intravenous anesthesia, putting patient charts together, assisting the doctor with procedures, and attending to patients in the recovery room. She performed almost all of these tasks – except assisting with procedures – without supervision from the doctor, and usually while he was absent from the facility. For most of the time Lewis was employed at the clinic, she worked from about 10:00 a.m. until the night’s procedures were completed – sometimes as late as 2:00 or 3:00 a.m. In the beginning, Gosnell paid her $7 an hour, plus time-and-a-half overtime for anything over 40 hours and $20 cash for every second-trimester abortion. He later revised his pay scale, raising her base rate to $12 an hour, but not paying overtime. In 2008, Lewis stopped assisting with procedures and cut back her hours to 9:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m.

Lewis was working at the clinic on November 18, 2009, and conducted the pre-exam of Karnamaya Mongar. She was also present the next day when Mrs. Mongar returned, but left for the day before Mrs. Mongar began to have any troubles. Lewis remained at the clinic until law enforcement raided it on February 18, 2010.

ANOTHER DRUG DEAL ON DAY ABORTION PATIENT DIES:

Lynda Williams Gosnell Lynda Williams

According to court documents, On or about November 20, 2009, A.M., a person known to the grand jury, placed an order with Lynda Gail Williams for prescriptions for controlled substances for a customer by the name of C.B. A WMS office staff member then gathered the customer chart for C.B. along with a written order for controlled substances and gave the chart and the order to KERMIT B. GOSNELL. Without seeing C.B., GOSNELL wrote the requested prescriptions for the controlled substances.

Gosnell Perp Walk

Gosnell has been convicted on three counts of first-degree murder for the death of that patient as well as killing several babies by cutting their spinal cords with scissors.

In addition, Gosnell has received a concurrent 30 years in prison for the distributing of the drugs.

Gosnell Eileen Oneilljpg

An unlicensed physician who worked in the family practice at abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic was sentenced Monday to 6 to 23 months of house arrest by a judge who said he was mystified how “someone with your intelligence” could work for Gosnell.

Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart made it clear that Eileen O’Neill, 56, would have gone to prison were she not the sole caretaker for her seriously ill 82-year-old mother. “You have to serve some form of punishment, but I don’t think it has to be at the expense of your mother,” Minehart said.

In addition to house arrest, Minehart ordered O’Neill to complete 100 hours of community service in any area except medicine where she could present herself as a doctor. She will serve two years probation after completing the house arrest.

In May, a jury found her guilty of two counts of theft by deception and two counts of conspiracy involving her work at the Women’s Medical Society clinic at 3801 Lancaster Ave. O’Neill, however, shed little light on why, after graduating medical school in the 1990s and passing her medical board tests, she never got her license. Gosnell 72, was found guilty of three counts of first-degree murder for killing infants born alive during abortion procedures, and is serving three consecutive life sentences.

ms-Mongar

Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore described how Eileen O’Neill traveled to Louisiana to find out more on O’Neill, where the unlicensed doctor had previous troubles while working at a Baton Rouge, La. abortion clinic.

Pescatore claimed that O’Neill was “not always truthful” and cited that she was previously charged with perjury in this trial.

She went into detail on the night of Karnamaya Mongar’s death.

Mongar, a 41-year-old immigrant, went into cardiac arrest in Dr. Gosnell’s clinic and died the next morning at a nearby hospital.

Pescatore said O’Neill ran upstairs and hid rather than help, and that she ran out of the clinic during an FBI raid “because she had things to hide.”

*Eileen O’Neill testified that she graduated in 1995 from a medical school in Texas. She described an odd course of residency in which she seemingly worked simultaneously in Texas and at a Louisiana abortion clinic and then spent a month at Gosnell’s clinic, where she said she “just stood around and did nothing pretty much.” Louisiana Board of Medicine records show that O’Neill was licensed to practice medicine in Louisiana from 1996 to 2000 (she testified, incorrectly, that she was licensed from 1995 to 1998). She testified that she worked at the Delta abortion clinic in Baton Rouge from 1998 to 2000, even though she also testified that she moved to Texas in 1998. She said that she worked at the Louisiana abortion clinic as a “side job.” During that same time period, in 1998 or 1999, she said she was licensed to practice in Texas, but obtained “special dispensation” to finish her residency at Reading Hospital in Pennsylvania. She spent one month of her residency at Gosnell’s clinic.
*O’Neill briefly held a “graduate medical training license” in Pennsylvania, but let it expire in 2001. After her residency stints, she never held a medical license in
Pennsylvania. (She asserted that she has a license application pending now.)
O’Neill relinquished her Louisiana medical license in 2000 – she claimed because of “post traumatic stress syndrome” – and has not been licensed to practice medicine in
any capacity since 2001. Despite being fully aware that she was not licensed, Gosnell hired her to work at his clinic in 2002. O’Neill testified that she met Gosnell through
Leroy Brinkley, the owner of both the Baton Rouge abortion clinic and Atlantic Women’s Services, the Delaware abortion clinic where Gosnell worked one day a week.
In her testimony, O’Neill tried to minimize her hours, her pay, and her responsibilities at Gosnell’s clinic. She said that she commuted from Phoenixville to work four hours a night (8:00 p.m. to midnight), three nights a week (Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays). She testified, under oath, that she was really a volunteer, and
that Gosnell just provided her with gas money.

She testified:
A: He gave me travel money every now and then, just
whenever he had cash. He always said he never had any
money.
Q: So how much did you make?
A: For 15 hours a week, sometimes he give me 200 every
couple of weeks and sometimes 200 a month. Sometimes
400 every two months.
Gosnell, she said, paid her in cash.

*O’Neill acknowledged that she saw patients and that they called her Dr. O’Neill. But she claimed that her responsibilities were mainly paperwork, tasks such as composing hardship letters, doing referrals, and filling out forms for disability and family medical leave. She insisted that she saw patients only when Gosnell was at the clinic, a
claim refuted by her co-workers and disproved by her own files. Steve Massof testified that every day she worked, O’Neill saw patients before Gosnell arrived for the night. And
Kareema Cross confirmed that O’Neill was regularly at the clinic before Gosnell came in. O’Neill tried to assert that she did not treat patients, based on a fiction that the
doctor was always there supervising her. But her own testimony belied this sham:
Q: What do you mean that you didn’t treat patients?
A: Well, I never decide what the treatment is. That’s up to
him.
Q: What would you do –
A: Because I’m there with him all night. So I can talk to
him about patients.
Q: Okay. So your testimony is that he was with – that every
time you saw patients, where was he, the doctor?
A: Well, it depends, he would be in and out sometimes. I
mean the deal was, he was supposed to be seeing them with
me, but I’m sure there’s times when he didn’t. Sometimes
he just stuck his head in, you know.
Later, she qualified her claim further:
Q: … you’re saying all the services that you provided to the
patient was in the company of Dr. Gosnell.
A: No. I didn’t say that. I said I would like it to be. He was
always on the premises. Sometimes he’d just poke his head
in. Whatever he tells me to do, I would do.

MASSOF

Employee Eric Massof testified that O’Neill worked alone and unsupervised, that she treated patients, and that she prescribed drugs. Latosha Lewis described O’Neill as “basically the doctor that saw family practice patients.” Files found at the clinic show O’Neill signing post-procedure pelvic exams as the “clinician.” Gosnell introduced O’Neill to an evaluator from the National Abortion Federation (NAF), an association of abortion providers, as the doctor who performed the first-trimester medical abortions (performed with pills, not surgery) – and O’Neill confirmed to the NAF evaluator that she did treat these patients.
*Gosnell also introduced O’Neill to another one-time clinic worker, Randy Hutchins, as a physician. Hutchins believed O’Neill was a licensed doctor because he saw her treat patients at the clinic. Hutchins personally knew one of the patients – Della Mann, a registered nurse who had worked at the clinic years earlier (and, again, for four
days in December 2009, when the NAF evaluator was present). *Mann told the Grand Jury that she had been a “patient” of O’Neill’s for several years and a patient of Gosnell’s for over 20 years before O’Neill joined his practice. She explained that she started seeing O’Neill when she arrived for an appointment with Gosnell one night and was told by the person at the front desk that she would be seen by “Dr. O’Neill” instead. Mann testified that for approximately seven years, until 2009, she
saw “Dr. O’Neill” for “each and every one of my visits.” She said that she saw Gosnell only four or five times during that period. Mann listed a number of conditions for which
she had seen O’Neill. O’Neill had diagnosed her conditions, prescribed medication, and signed her charts. Mann could not say whose signature was on the prescriptions, but she
saw O’Neill write them. Mann never saw or talked to Gosnell about these conditions. He did not pop his head in, and he did not consult with O’Neill. As far as Mann knew, O’Neill was her doctor. And she always assumed that O’Neill was licensed. She certainly never suspected that Gosnell allowed her to be treated by a “volunteer” at his clinic. Mann told the Grand
Jurors: “If I knew that she was not licensed, I wouldn’t have let her touch me.”
Mann did eventually stop seeing O’Neill, but it was not because she was not licensed. Mann said that in 2008, she decided to stop going to Gosnell’s office because of
its reckless handling of patient files. She said that the files were left all over the place and that anyone, including other patients, could have access to them.
O’Neill was in the clinic on February 18, 2010, when law enforcement conducted the raid. She fled, however, before being interviewed – even though she had been told not
to leave.

Jury selection is set to begin next month in Philadelphia in the murder trial against Dr. Kermit B. Gosnell, an abortion provider who worked in both Wilmington and Philadelphia before his indictment on homicide charges in January 2011. Gosnell, 72, and members of his clinic staff, including two Delaware women, are accused of killing at least seven babies that were delivered alive during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic. Gosnell, who may face the death penalty if convicted, and others are also charged in the 2009 death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41,who died due to an overdose during an abortion procedure at Gosnell’s clinic. Visit SafeandLegal.com to see a list of women killed from legal abortion.

ms-Mongar

41 year-old Karnamaya Mongar was a refugee who had recently come to the United States from a resettlement camp in Nepal, when she arrived at the Women’s Medical Society abortion clinic. The West Philadelphia clinic, referred to as a “house of horrors”, was owned by abortionist Kermit Gosnell. According to a report for the grand jury filed by the state’s district attorney, office workers had Mrs. Mongar sign various forms which she could not read, and then began doping her up. She received repeated unmonitored, unrecorded intravenous injections of Demerol. After several hours, Mrs. Mongar stopped breathing.

Gosnell was later arrested and charged with homicide in her death as well as the deaths of 7 babies he allegedly killed with scissors after they were born. Clinic worker, Sherry West, 52, has pleaded guilty to the charge, for her role in administering at least some of the fatal dose of Demerol.

Phila. illegal abortion clinic workers could face death
Prosecutors consider penalty for Gosnell, Delaware woman, others

11:06 PM, Mar. 2, 2011 |


Dr. Kermit Gosnell

PHILADELPHIA — Pennsylvania prosecutors said during a court hearing Wednesday they were reserving the right to seek the death penalty for Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who is accused of killing infants delivered alive following late-term abortion procedures.

Prosecutors also said they are considering death-penalty cases against three of Gosnell’s employees, including 42-year-old Lynda Williams of Wilmington.

Assistant District Attorney Christine Wechsler said there were sufficient facts for prosecutors to file a death penalty notice against Gosnell, but they need to continue their investigation before deciding on the others. Wechsler and Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore agreed with the defense attorneys to postpone the decision for 60 days while both sides investigate the matter.

Prosecutors are considering pushing for the death penalty against Steven Massof, 48, and Adrienne Moton, 33, along with Williams, who is facing two counts of murder for her alleged roles in at least one baby’s death and in the 2009 death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar from an overdose of sedative medication. Those charges would qualify her for the death penalty, Wechsler said.

The Rev. Derrick Johnson of Wilmington was in the Philadelphia courtroom Wednesday to show support for Williams, who along with her family, has been a member of his Joshua Harvest Church for almost two years.

“The church cannot turn its back on anybody, and we won’t turn our back on her at this time, either,” said Johnson, adding he wasn’t there to judge the acts she is accused of committing.

Johnson, who was accompanied by a friend of Williams and two church members, said Williams’ biggest concern now has been the welfare of her children and grandchild.
“When she was arrested, the landlord in Wilmington immediately moved to evict the family from his property,” Johnson said. “We’ve been helping them by wrapping our arms around them.”


The death penalty will not be considered against six other Gosnell employees, including 51-year-old Sherry West of Bear.

West faces a third-degree murder charge in the death of a patient who was over-medicated, prosecutors said.

The Philadelphia charges against Gosnell and the employees are related to incidents at his West Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society clinic, but a grand jury report indicated he routinely started late-term abortion procedures that were illegal in Delaware at the Atlantic Women’s Medical Services clinic on Baynard Boulevard in Wilmington and completed them at the Pennsylvania clinic. Gosnell and the workers from his West Philadelphia clinic were arrested in January and charged with a variety of felonies, including homicide.

Gosnell began treating at least six patients in Delaware and then sent them to Philadelphia, according to evidence considered by the grand jury.

Prosecutors said that one of seven live newborns Gosnell is accused of killing by severing their spinal cords with scissors belonged to a teenage girl who first visited him at the Wilmington clinic. He took her to the West Philadelphia site because she was too far along to get an abortion under Delaware law, they said.

There have been no criminal charges filed in the case by Delaware authorities. But Dr. Albert Dworkin, one of two Delaware physicians associated with Gosnell, had his medical license temporarily suspended Tuesday by the Delaware Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline, which cited a “clear and immediate danger” to the public.

Dworkin plans to seek a hearing within 15 days to get his physician’s privileges restored, his attorney said. A request for the emergency suspension of a second doctor, Arturo Apolinario, was turned down, but an expedited hearing to review charges against him is going forward and Apolinario’s ability to write prescriptions has been suspended.

Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden also filed complaints with the medical board last week seeking a cease-and-desist order against Panzy Myrie, the owner of Atlantic Women’s Medical Services, for improperly advertising herself as a doctor, and seeking a fine against Atlantic for the violations by the doctors and Myrie. The complaints filed against Atlantic, Myrie and the doctors are all civil actions that could result in fines and suspensions but do not carry any prison time.

Dworkin’s suspension is one of the first actions taken against a Delaware physician since a number of new regulations were adopted by state lawmakers last year following the arrest of Lewes pediatrician Earl B. Bradley for abusing young patients.

Gosnell and the nine employees are scheduled to have their pretrial motions heard before Common Pleas Court Judge Benjamin Lerner on March 30.

Daughter of abortion patient killed by Kermit Gosnell speaks out

41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar died as a result of her abortion by abortionist Kermit Gosnell.

Mongar died November 20, 2009, after overdosing on anesthetics prescribed by the doctor, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said. Williams called the facility “a house of horrors” that performed “botched and illegal abortions” and that was full of containers of fetuses’ body parts.

The family of the woman Gosnell killed has filed a civil lawsuit against him and against Gosnell’s abortion business seeking damages.

Daughter of abortion patient killed by Kermit G…, posted with vodpod

In a new ruling, Common Pleas Judge Paul Panepinto granted a temporary injunction that prevents the abortion practitioner from liquidating his assets in an effort to avoid paying out any money in the settlement his attorney may arrange with attorneys for Mongar’s family. The Philadelphia Daily News indicates Bernard Smalley, the attorney representing Monar’s family, requested the injunction and a hearing will be held on March 9 to determine if the injunction should remain permanent.

The injunction requires Gosnell’s attorney to make public all of the properties he owns and prevents him from transferring the deed to the home he has in Brigantine, New Jersey — valued at about $1 million — to a family member or someone else. He is also unable to see the Women’s Medical Society abortion business for less than market value.

The News indicates Gosnell will be able to sell some real estate assets to cover legal fees but he can’t sell everything and declare himself unable to pay the civil lawsuit.
“We have no knowledge about what he owns, but what we wanted to prevent was him in any way dissipating his assets,” Smalley said, according to the paper.

A political refugee from the country of Bhutan, Mongar went to Gosnell on Nov. 19, 2009 for the abortion and, prior to it, was given numerous doses of pain and sedation drugs by an individual who was not a licensed medical practitioner.

Massive amounts of drugs found in the victim’s system led authorities to suspect Gosnell was illegally prescribing pain-killers. He temporarily lost his medical license in both Pennsylvania and neighboring Delaware. Pennsylvania officials suspect Mongar died from the botched abortion in part because she had been treated by unlicensed personnel.

The State Board of Medicine says Gosnell had the unlicensed staff member give vaginal exams and administer the drugs Demerol, Promethazine and Diazepam. He was eventually fined $1,000 for the violations.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell is charged with seven first-degree murder charges related to the deaths of seven viable babies, and one third-degree murder in the death of Mongar. He is being held without bail.

Philadelphia Abortion Doctor Charged With 8 Counts Of Murder
January 19, 2011 11:23 PM

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A West Philadelphia abortion doctor, his wife and eight other suspects are now under arrest following a grand jury investigation.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, faces eight counts of murder in the deaths of a woman following a botched abortion at his office, along with the deaths of seven other babies who, prosecutors allege, were born alive following illegal late-term abortions and then were killed by severing their spinal cords with a pair of scissors.

“I am aware that abortion is a hot-button topic,” said District Attorney Seth Williams. “But as district attorney, my job is to carry out the law. A doctor who knowingly and systematically mistreats female patients, to the point that one of them dies in his so-called care, commits murder under the law. A doctor who cuts into the necks severing the spinal cords of living, breathing babies, who would survive with proper medical attention, is committing murder under the law.”

Gosnell is facing charges of murder in the third degree for the death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar. Mrs. Mongar died on November 20, 2009, when she was overdosed with anesthetics prescribed by Gosnell. He is also facing seven murder charges for the deaths of infants who were killed after being born viable and alive during the sixth, seventh, or eighth month of pregnancy. Gosnell is also facing numerous other charges.

Gosnell is suspected of killing hundreds of living babies over the course of his 30-year practice. However, he is not charged because the records do not exist.
DA Williams said Gosnell made approximately $1.8 million in one year alone performing the procedures.

Four of the suspects, some improperly licensed according to officials, also face multiple counts of murder for allegedly killing the newborns. All of the suspects are now behind bars after warrants were served overnight.

A search of Gosnell’s office, called the Women’s Medical Society, revealed that bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building. Jars containing the severed feet of babies lined a shelf.

Gosnell, a family practioner, was never certified as an OB/GYN. He is accused of re-using unsanitary instruments and performing procedures in filthy rooms. Some of the rooms had litter boxes and animals present at the time of the operations.

Investigators also said Gosnell allowed unlicensed employees, including a 15-year-old high school student, to perform operations and administer anesthesia.

The grand jury investigation revealed that, for over two decades, government health and licensing officials had received repeated reports about Gosnell’s dangerous practices. However, no action was ever taken, even after the agencies learned that Mrs. Mongar had died during routine abortions under Gosnell’s care (see related story).

Dr. Gosnell, who has practiced in the West Philadelphia neighborhood for decades, is also the target of a federal grand jury investigation into illegally prescribing prescription drugs. Investigators say during a search of his home, they found $240,000 in cash.

Defense attorney William J. Brennan, who was out of town when the arrest happened this morning, said he had not yet talked to Dr. Gosnell, but says the charges are extremely serious and emotionally charged, and it is extremely important not to have a rush to judgement. Brennan says Gosnell is “cloaked with the presumption of innocence.”

Meanwhile, a civil suit has also been filed against Gosnell on behalf of the husband and children of the woman who died after an abortion. The suit seeks unspecified damages for the family of Karna Mongar, an immigrant from Bhutan who spent many years as a refugee. The suit claims she died after just five months here because of treatment by unlicensed personnel in a facility that lacked proper medical equipment.

The doctor, in past interviews with Eyewitness News, has proclaimed his innocence, predicting if charged, he will be acquitted.

Inside the ‘baby charnel house’

The grand jury called it “a baby charnel house.”

For more than 30 years, Kermit Gosnell ran an abortion clinic in West Philadelphia that was the “go-to” place for women wanting illegal late-term abortions or for people seeking no-questions-asked prescription drugs, according to a grand jury.

Here are some highlights from the jury’s report:
* Gosnell performed thousands of abortions at his Women’s Medical Society at 38th Street and Lancaster Avenue, even though he was a family practitioner never certified as an obstetrician or gynecologist. Gosnell was rarely present in the clinic, allowing his unlicensed, untrained staff to administer drugs and perform procedures.

* Gosnell routinely induced labor in patients in their second and third trimesters rather than perform risky late-term abortions. That sometimes resulted in live births. He and his staffers killed the babies by stabbing their necks with scissors to sever their spinal cords and sometimes suctioning their skulls, too. About a baby writhing as he cut its neck, Gosnell joked to a staffer: “That’s what you call a chicken with its head cut off.”

* Gosnell is accused of murder in the November 2009 death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41, who died a day after a staffer overdosed her with sedatives. Another woman, Semika Shaw, 22, died after Gosnell punctured her uterus and sent her home. Gosnell allegedly injured “scores” of others, leaving some sterile, perforating the bowels and uteruses of others. He frequently left fetal remains inside women, who then had to seek treatment elsewhere. * Gosnell and his staffers frequently left their patients unattended, so that the dead fetuses or live babies “fell out” wherever the patient was, often the bathroom. One clinic janitor told the grand jury that this happened so often that fetuses frequently clogged the toilet.

* Conditions at the clinic were deplorable. The walls were urine-splattered, and the floors were bloodstained. A janitor testified that the bathrooms were cleaned just once a week, even though patients routinely vomited into sinks and miscarried into toilets.

* White patients waited and were treated in a cleaner room than patients of color. Patients of color who became “too rowdy” got a slap on the thigh from Gosnell, one worker testified. Gosnell photographed his patients’ genitalia before procedures, another told the grand jury.

* A high-schooler, the daughter of staffer Tina Baldwin, worked in the clinic for four years, starting at age 15. She worked as much as 50 hours a week for $8.50 an hour. She routinely operated the ultrasound machine, administered anesthesia, diagnosed sexually transmitted diseases and told grand jurors she often was “in charge” of the clinic at night.
* Investigators say Gosnell made up to $15,000 a night, mostly in cash, for a few hours of work performing abortions. That doesn’t include the money he made as one of the state’s top Oxycontin prescribers. When authorities searched his home, they found a gun and $240,000 in cash stashed in his 12-year-old daughter’s closet.

* Instead of trashing disposable medical supplies, Gosnell directed workers to reuse them over and over until they broke. They were rarely sterilized, allowing venereal disease and other germs to spread among patients. After the raid, inspectors found that the suction source used to perform abortions was the only one available to resuscitate patients.

* Medical waste and fetal remains were supposed to be picked up weekly by a licensed disposal provider. But because Gosnell didn’t pay his bills, months might pass between pickups, leaving leaking bags and boxes to pile up in the clinic’s basement and freezers.
