A west Philadelphia abortion doctor facing murder charges in the deaths of seven babies and a patient has pleaded not guilty to federal drug charges.
Seventy-year-old Kermit Gosnell entered the plea in a brief court hearing Monday. Last month, federal prosecutors charged Gosnell with using his medical office as a pill mill to dispense thousands of prescriptions for highly addictive painkillers between 2008 and January 2010.
Gosnell also has pleaded not guilty to murder in the deaths of the seven babies and a patient who died of a painkiller overdose while waiting for an abortion.
Authorities say live-born babies were killed at the clinic by having their spinal cords severed with scissors. Philadelphia prosecutors called the clinic a "house of horrors."
Lawyers in the case are under a gag order.
