Abortion Doc Kermit Gosnell Joked as He Snipped Babies’ Spinal Cords
The guy’s a real comedian . . .
“This is a targeted, elitist and racist prosecution of a doctor who’s done nothing but give (back) to the poor and the people of West Philadelphia,” the fiery McMahon insisted to the predominantly black jury, as Gosnell sat serenely taking notes. “It’s a prosecutorial lynching of Dr. Kermit Gosnell.”
“Racist”? According to the same Grand Jury report, Gosnell made no bones about treating suburban white women with money differently than inner city women of color, who were poor.
A few weeks ago Tara Murtha of the Philadelphia Weekly ran a piece that channeled McMahon’s demagoguery. But even Murtha conceded
“As a former worker in Gosnell’s clinic told the grand jury, Gosnell, a rich black man, treated poor brown and black patients differently than middle-class white patients. From the [Grand Jury] report: ‘Like if a girl — the black population was — African population was big here. So he didn’t mind [having clinic workers] medicating your African-American girls, your Indian girl, but if you had a white girl from the suburbs, oh, you better not medicate her. You better wait until he go in and talk to her first.’”
How about “giving back” to the community? There is no evidence he did, but Gosnell certainly had plenty if he had so chosen. The prosecution says he made millions aborting babies, many of whom were well past the point of viability. (Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore told jurors that police found $250,000 in cash during a 2010 search of Gosnell’s home.)
