Gosnell gave patients STDs via contaminated instruments; tossed breathing infant into shoebox

Every day, more horrifying details emerge in the Kermit Gosnell trial. As you read the following, remember: The mainstream media still doesn’t understand why anybody thinks this is an important news story.

Cheryl Sullenger at LifeNews:

Two witnesses took the stand yesterday in the capital murder case of Kermit Gosnell, providing testimony from the perspectives of a patient and an employee of substandard conditions and illegal practices at Gosnell’s “House of Horrors” clinic at 3801 Lancaster…

The longest testimony of the day came from Latosha Lewis, 31, a medical assistant who worked for Gosnell for almost ten years…

Lewis indicated that Gosnell’s equipment was outdated and never inspected, and that he often reused disposable curettes, which is the sharp-ended tube that enters the womb in abortion procedures and applies suction for the removal of the pre-born baby and other tissues and fluids.

Lewis testified that the curettes were washed, dried and placed in an antiseptic solution, then reused. The curettes are meant to be disposable and for single use only. She indicated that she noticed that women who had abortions using the reused curettes began returning to the clinic suffering from sexually transmitted diseases.

Earlier testimony indicated that plastic curettes are more porous than metal surgical instruments and simply cannot be adequately cleaned for reuse.

And Steven Ertelt at LifeNews writes:

A former staff worker at the Kermit Gosnell abortion facility testified during the murder trial today that the abortion practitioner and his staff once tossed a newborn child who survived a failed abortion and was still breathing into a shoe box.

In fact, Kareema Cross told a jury in Philadelphia today that she saw at least 10 children who were breathing after botched abortions but killed afterwards. What happened shocked her so badly she took photographs to document what happened.

Cross took pictures to document filth in the abortion clinic and a picture of a huge baby boy tossed in shoe box breathing, moving, and too big for the box. Cross testified of large babies birthed, moving, and moaning some for 20 min before their necks were snipped.

What Adam Lanza did was unconscionable. What the still-unknown Boston Marathon bomber(s) did was unconscionable. And so is what Kermit Gosnell did. But only one of them stands in the way of the Democrats’ policy goals. They’re going to do whatever they can to minimize this.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t intend to let them.
