Two former employees of Philadelphia abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell, serving life in prison for killing babies who were born alive have been sentenced for their roles in the case.

Lynda Williams Gosnell

Forty-five-year-old phlebotomist Lynda Williams was sentenced Thursday to 5 to 10 years in prison on two counts of third-degree murder.

Forty-eight-year-old receptionist Tina Baldwin was sentenced to 30 months of probation for her guilty plea to sustaining a corrupt organization and other offenses.

_______________________

Both women testified against Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted last year in the killing of babies born alive and viable during illegal late-term abortions and in the overdose death of a patient.

In another case involving Gosnell, Phoenixville resident Eileen O’Neill, 56, was sentenced last summer to house arrest.

O’Neill, an unlicensed doctor who worked for Gosnell, was sentenced in July 2013 to 6 to 23 months of house arrest by Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart.

According to the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, O’Neill will be on probation for two years after she completes her house arrest and has to complete 100 hours of community service.

Both women were typical of those Gosnell hired: poorly educated, with serious personal problems, and willing to work for cash “under the table.”

Williams was a widow with three children who met Gosnell at a Wilmington abortion clinic where he also worked. Gosnell began treating her for bipolar illness and hired her.

Baldwin began working for Gosnell after her internship at the clinic when she was at Germantown High School.

Baldwin’s lawyer, Colin R. Hueston, asked Lerner for probation, noting that she reports to a federal prison July 7 to begin an 18-month term on her guilty plea to drug conspiracy charges involving the sale of narcotic prescriptions at Gosnell’s clinic.

“I wish I never got involved,” Baldwin told Lerner. “I’m sorry for the things I did.”

• 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.”

According to the Kermit Gosnell Grand Jury Report, “Lynda Williams was hired to work full-time in 2008. She had previously worked with Gosnell at Atlantic Women’s Medical Services in Delaware, and had filled in from time to time at 3801 Lancaster Avenue. Gosnell originally hired Williams to clean instruments, but very soon had her anesthetizing abortion patients, performing ultrasounds, administering Cytotec vaginally, and dealing with babies born alive while he was not at the clinic. The way Williams dealt with the babies was the way the doctor showed her – she cut their spinal cords with scissors. She was not certified or licensed to perform any of these duties. Williams commuted to work with Sherry West and kept the same hours. She and West were supposedly attending to Karnamaya Mongar in the recovery room throughout the afternoon of November 19, 2009. It was Williams who actually administered the lethal mixes of Demerol, promethazine, and diazepam that killed Karnamaya Mongar. When the clinic was raided in February 2010, she was still employed and still administering anesthetics to patients.

Lynda Williams Gosnell

A FORMER front-desk night worker in Kermit Gosnell’s West Philadelphia abortion clinic was sentenced in federal court to 2 1/2 years in prison for her role in the illegal “pill-mill” case.

Lynda Williams, 45, had collected money and accepted tips in return for handing out illegal prescriptions for addictive painkillers.

She pleaded guilty in July 2012 to distribution of controlled substances and conspiracy.

Williams, most recently of Wilmington, Del., faces another sentencing Wednesday in Common Pleas Court on the more macabre aspects of the operations in Gosnell’s former abortion clinic, the Women’s Medical Society.

Man who bullied disabled neighbors is ordered to hold “I am a bully” sign as sentence

Posted in Bully with tags , , , , , , on April 15, 2014 by saynsumthn

An Ohio man whose neighbor said had called her an ethnic slur while she was holding her adopted black children, spit on her several times, regularly threw dog feces on her son’s car windshield, and once smeared feces on a wheelchair ramp, has been ordered to hold an “I am a bully” sign on a street corner by a Judge.

According to MyFoxDFW, sixty-two-year-old Edmond Aviv says that he ignored the honking of horns and people passing by as he held the sign as punishment in a disorderly conduct case.

IAMABullyAViv

The sentence stemmed from a neighborhood dispute in which a woman said Aviv had bullied her and her disabled children for years.

Aviv pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge, and Municipal Court Judge Gayle Williams-Byers ordered him to display the sign for five hours Sunday as part of his sentence.

The judge selected the wording for it: “I AM A BULLY! I pick on children that are disabled, and I am intolerant of those that are different from myself. My actions do not reflect an appreciation for the diverse South Euclid community that I live in.”

This sentence made me chuckle.

Gosnell abortion assistant sentenced for role in woman’s death says she treated patients “like family”

Kermit Gosnell is serving three life sentences for his role in snipping the necks of several babies at his Philadelphia House of Horrors abortion clinic.

GosnellSherryWEST

One of his abortion assistance, Sherry West was sentenced today (March 13,2014) to five to 10 years in prison for her role in the 2009 overdose death of an abortion patient.

Sherry West was hired by Gosnell in October 2008. She had known Gosnell as a patient for 35 years. She had recently been diagnosed with hepatitis C. The doctor hired her to perform the same duties as his other “medical assistants.” Like them, she had no training or certificate that would qualify her to do ultrasound examinations, administer anesthesia, monitor patients in the recovery room, or do any of the other duties that she performed. No precautions were taken to protect patients from exposure to hepatitis C.

West worked at the clinic every day except Wednesday and Sunday. She was paid strictly in cash, at a rate of between eight and ten dollars an hour. Her hours were supposed to be 3:00 p.m. to closing. She was present on the night that Karnamaya Mongar died and was still working at the clinic on February 18, 2010, when the facility was raided.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, West pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and other charges, admitting that on Nov. 19, 2009, she administered some of the Demerol overdose that killed Karnamaya Mongar, 41, during an abortion at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic.

West also admitted that, after accompanying the comatose Mongar and her family to a hospital emergency room, she lied about what happened and destroyed or altered Mongar’s medical records.

On Thursday, however, West maintained she “treated patients like family” and “didn’t mean to do anything wrong.”

According to Life News, West once described an incident which “really freaked (her) out” and related to the jury how she heard a child scream who was born alive following an abortion.

Gosnell275x

West remembered how she referred to the dead children killed in these gruesome abortion procedures as “specimens” so she could avoid the mental trauma associated with knowing how they died.

When Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore pressed the 53-year-old West for specifics about the incident, West struggled to answer, clearly uncomfortable with the memory.

“I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien,” West testified, telling a judge and Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas jury that the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.

West said she saw the child, whose face and features were not yet completely formed, lying on a glass tray on a shelf and she told a co-worker to call Gosnell about it and fled the room.

During her two years working for Gosnell, West said she also saw patients deliver “specimens” in the toilet, which she made a co-worker remove, adding she called aborted fetuses “specimens” because “it was easier to deal with mentally.”

Gosnell is serving three consecutive life terms after being convicted of murder for killing babies born alive and viable during illegal late-term abortions.

West was one of nine Gosnell workers charged in connection with the operation of his Women’s Medical Society Clinic at 3801 Lancaster Ave. All pleaded guilty and two await sentencing.

Abortion Assistant Steven Massof sentenced 6-12 years for Gosnell clinic role

Posted in Kermit Gosnell with tags , , , , , , on February 12, 2014 by saynsumthn

MASSOF

On Wednesday, Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Benjamin Lerner sentenced Kermit Gosnell‘s assistant, Steven Massof to 6 to 12 years in prison.

The judge credited Massof’s decision to plea guilty to two counts of third-degree murder and testify against Gosnell but called what happened at the clinic “unspeakably horrible.”

“As evil as Dr. Gosnell was, as charismatic as he may have been, he didn’t do this alone,” Lerner said. “He couldn’t do this without the assistance of someone like you.”

“I don’t know how it started,” the 51-year-old Massof, voice cracking as he forced down a sob, told the judge.

“I realize that this is something that’s wrong and will never be right and will never go away,” said Massof, who called his work with Gosnell “a horrific part of my life.”

Assistant District Attorney Edward Cameron, who handled the case with fellow prosecutor Joanne Pescatore, argued for a 10- to 20-year prison term.

Despite Massof’s cooperation, Cameron said, he had the education, intelligence and training to know what he was doing was wrong – and stop it.

During his testimony at the Kermit Gosnell abortion murder trial, employee Stephen Massof said he saw at least one baby take a breath, and another jerk its leg.

Gosnell275x

Massof estimated that he saw about 100 babies born alive and then “snipped” with surgical scissors in the back of the neck, to ensure their “demise.”Gosnell Behind Bars

Stephen Massof described how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it, “literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body.” He testified that at times, when women were given medicine to speed up their deliveries, “it would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place.”

A mutual acquaintance led him to Gosnell’s clinic, where he spent five years before leaving in 2008 over a dispute with other staffers. He was charged with murder three years later, after a 2010 FBI probe of Gosnell’s distribution of painkillers spawned a raid at the clinic, and the more serious abortion case.

Massof made only $200 to $300 a week to oversee a high volume of second-trimester patients going through labor — and, often, delivery. He said he saw at least one baby take a breath, and another jerk its leg. Gosnell told his staff that such movements were “spontaneous,” Massof said.

Massof estimated that he saw about 100 babies born alive and then “snipped” with surgical scissors in the back of the neck, to ensure their “demise.”
Gosnell, who had another clinic in Delaware, typically came in only at night for the final part of the procedure, leaving Massof to monitor the pain-racked or highly sedated women.

I felt like a firemen in hell. I couldn’t put out all the fires,” he testified.

Gosnell, meanwhile, took in more than $1 million a year, and kept $250,000 in cash under his mattress, prosecutors have said.

“He always led me to believe he was a poor, struggling urban physician and surgeon,” Massof said. “I thought he was hurting financially.”

SPIN ALERT: Media gets the memo: “Call abortion docs who butcher women or get into trouble: Rogue !”

The pro-abort blog RH Reality Check claimed that abortionists are ROGUE when they misbehave or as I like to say it “get caught”. The abortion lobby tries to imply that murder, malpractice and sleezy conduct is not the “norm” from abortion doctors.

These pro-choice factless have published several articles using the term ROGUE ABORTION DOCTOR and it looks as if their spin agenda has been passed along to the media.

Gosnell

This week, Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia doctor already serving life in prison for performing abortions and killing babies born alive as well as victimizing women in his care, has just been sentenced to a concurrent 30 years for illegally distributing painkillers, including many later sold on the street by addicts and drug dealers.

Despite Gosnell’s YEARS of running an abortion business, the years of pro-choice opposition to any laws that would regulate or monitor abortionists like Gosnell, the pro-choice opposition to serious and consistent inspections of Gosnell’s clinic, the media is now referring to this monster – a regular abortionist as: ROGUE!

Gosnell ROGUE Headline

Sally KohnRecently, Sally Kohn, a Fox News Contributor and rabid pro-abortion supporter tried to infer that the abortion lobby was responsible for the arrest and exposure of this so-called “ROGUE” abortionist. That was an all out LIE and I proved it in my column here.

Next RH Reality Blog published another radical pro-abortion mouth piece and tried to say they were the ones exposing sleazy abortion doctor Steven Brigham another one they called “ROGUE” – and again, I eviscerated their argument here.

RH Reality ROGUE Abortionist

When employees in Houston exposed the Born Alive killings of babies by abortionist Douglas Karpen, we heard zero, zilch, nodda, from RH Reality Blog or Ms. Kohn.

In fact, as I write this , Karpen and his Houston abortion clinic remain open with NO outrage from the abortion lobby at all !!!

Here is what Karpen’s employees have stated:

“We seen a lot of cases where women, they felt like they had to push and they had to run to the bathroom. On some occasions we had women that were the fetus were falling into the toilet.. We had one incident where it was big news, where the fetus was left in the toilet, I don’t know if you all heard about that one she was at McDonalds. They stopped there in the morning and the fetus was left in the toilet and nobody ever found out whose fetus it was, but it was one of his patients. We knew it because we were watching it on the news that day that she was supposed to be in the clinic.”

“He was trying to pull out the fetus…and he pulled her cervix out thinking it was the arm or something…he pulled it out, he ripped it apart..he had said, she probably won’t be able to have kids any more after this. ” “And he didn’t want to tell her because it was a Spanish speaking lady…she didn’t need to know what was going on with herself.” They said it was the staff not the abortionist who told the woman to go to the hospital after the abortion.

“He would leave a patient on the table, 45 minutes with her legs open and a speculum inside her cervix as he went across to his office and had his sandwich.”

When Planned Parenthood’s lobbyist hesitated on what the abortion giant would do with a botched abortion where a baby is born alive – there was NO CONDEMNATION from the abortion lobby there as well:

When this supposed Down’s baby was reportedly BORN ALIVE after an abortion- the silence from the South Florida abortion lobby was LOUD!

Baby Special
This child’s abortion began at South Florida abortion clinic in 1989. There were complications which caused the women to be transferred to a Hospital. Police received an anonymous call that the baby survived an abortion but was not treated. A nurse in the room during the abortion claims the baby was moving when it came out and the doctor just wrapped in some linens. The Medical Examiner testified the autopsy found pockets of air in the baby’s stomach and that the child breathed. “When a fetus is aborted, sometimes there is some activity in the fetus and you normally don’t do anything. You let the fetus expire. The usual thing is just to take your time, don’t immediately do anything,” the abortionist told authorities. Authorities cleared the doctor saying there was no clear evidence the abortionist smothered the baby. Pro-lifers felt authorities never took eye witness testimony into account. Baby Special was 23 1/2 weeks gestation.

tonya-reaves-0722
When Tonya Reaves was left inside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic bleeding to death for 5 hours without being transferred to a hospital which may have saved her life, there was no cry of fowl or accusation of an abortionist gone ROGUE from RH Reality, Ms. Kohn, or the media:

Remember Tonya WOmen Deserve Better

What is now known is that the Planned Parenthood abortionist ripped a hole in Ms. Reaves’ uterus and she began to hemorrhage. It is also known that the Planned Parenthood staff let Tonya lie there for over five hours before they sought emergency care for her. Of course, by then it was too late. She had lost approximately 30 percent of her body’s total blood volume. It is now undeniable that Planned Parenthood saw Tonya as less important than the public relations hit they would take from her being hauled out of their facility on a stretcher. And so, for more than 5 hours, they were willing to let her bleed in order to protect their political and financial agendas.

Apparently to Planned Parenthood, RH Reality, Ms. Kohn, and the pro-abortion media this black woman was merely a “statistic.”

These abortion pushers want you to believe that injuries, deaths, illegal activities inside abortion clinics are rare and that is an out-right lie.

NWAL Dangerous Filthy

Ambulance calls are documented to pick up injured abortion patients all the time. Like this one at an abortion clinic in Birmingham Alabama- which the abortion lobby has “protected” time and again. In fact, RH Reality Blog claims the owner of this dangerous mill as a “friend.”

RH REALITY HEADLINE NWAL Abortion clinic

So..the memo may have gone out and the lies have begone- but the reasons for this cover-up is simple: The abortion industry is a cesspool, filthy, dangerous and it is being exposed each and every day, and that, my friend is why they are spinning it so much !!!!

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.
