Pennsylvania doctor faces death penalty for performing abortions past 24 weeks
CNN — A Pennsylvania doctor is accused of performing abortions past the 24 week limit allowed by law. Even some as late as eight months into pregnancy.
Doctor Kermit Gosnell, 72, reportedly use used scissors to sever the spinal cords of newborns who emerge from their mothers alive.
There has been very little mainstream media coverage on this, and Texas Representative, Louie Gohmert says that he is appalled.
"...And killed after their born alive, is because they aren't puppies. they are human beings. They are boys and girls. And it doesn't fit the agenda of the mainstream media to report on little boys and little girls who's spinal cords are cut by a doctor," said Gohmert.
At this time, Gosnell has pleaded not guilty to eight counts of murder. It is said that if Gosnell is found guilty, prosecutors say that they will seek the death penalty.
