Wife of Gruesome Abortion Doctor Pleads Guilty to Assisting With Late Term Abortions

Posted: Dec 14, 2011 10:36 AM

In January 2011, abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell was arrested and charged with killing seven full term babies and a woman, among other things, while operating in a disgusting, unsanitary and unethical fashion in his Philadelphia clinic. Now, nearly a year later, Gosnell's wife has plead guilty to assisting Gosnell in the murders and abortions of hundreds of babies. Gosnell and his wife preyed on low-income, minority women in their practice and hired non-licensed "nurses" to help with late term abortion procedures. Babies were put into trash cans, jars and thrown away like garbage.

The wife of embattled abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell has pleaded guilty to assisting her husband at his Philadelphia abortion center where he killed a woman in a botched abortion and kills hundreds of babies in abortion-infanticides.

Gosnell was charged with participating in an illegal late-term abortion, conspiracy and being part of a corrupt organization at the abortion center Gosnell ran. Gosnell himself faces trial for first-degree murder for the deaths of a woman from a botched abortion and seven babies killed in the live-birth-infanticide-abortion process.

Pearl Gosnell was considering a plea deal similar to the one several of Gosnell’s former abortion center employees have made where they have pleaded guilty to receive a lesser sentence in exchange for testifying against Gosnell. Pearl also worked at the abortion center Gosnell ran that had him kill and injure women in failed abortions and kill perhaps hundreds of babies in grisly infanticides by birthing them and “snipping” their spinal cords.

She worked at the Women’s Medical Society abortion business her husband ran as a full-time medical assistant from 1982 until she married Kermit Gosnell in 1990, when she switched to only working on Sundays. At that time, the abortion business was officially closed but would do its latest-term abortions possible.

The grand jury report indicates Pearl Gosnell testified that she alone helped Kermit do abortions on Sundays whe she would “help do the instruments” in the operating room despite no medical training.

Pearl Gosnell is slated to be sentenced on February 15.
