Was found guilty, and will be sentenced in about a week. Sorry if something about this has been posted already, but I didn't see it.

Good Riddance...now for the wastes of air incubators to be charged...that would be justice.

Now for those who failed to inspect and oversee his facility to also be held responsible. I was shocked to hear today (must have missed it before) that his facility had not been inspected in decades. Sickening. The whole sordid situation.

On how many counts of what?

 And to think it was a Republican Gov who stopped the inspections in 1993.  They were supposed to inspect only clinics that had complaints filed against them.  But, yet, even when they rec'd complaints over the years on Gosnell, they never went to inspect him.  The state didn't start them up again until Gosnell was arrested.

(CNSNews.com) – The administration (1995-2001) of Pennsylvania’s Republican Gov. Tom Ridge stopped annual inspections of abortion clinics, according to the grand jury report on Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who is currently on trial in Philadelphia charged with the first-degree murder of seven born babies.

Under Democratic Gov. Bob Casey Sr., who preceded Ridge, the state had conducted annual inspections of abortion clinics, the report said.

Casey was pro-life; Ridge was pro-abortion.

“The politics in question were not anti-abortion, but pro-,” the grand jury report said. “With the change of administration from Governor Casey to Governor Ridge, officials concluded that inspections would be ‘putting a barrier up to women’ seeking abortions. Better to leave clinics to do as they pleased, even though, as Gosnell proved, that meant both women and babies would pay.”

True it was under Ridge that clinic inspections were scaled way back but from the point Gosnell opened his clinic there was very little oversight or inspections. I personally don't care what the politics of the Governor was or what their stance on abortion is. This is a matter of health inspections and a case of murder.
