Warning: This news story contains gory details of violent, criminal acts.
Two female workers at an inner-city abortion clinic pleaded guilty to murdering
newborn babies and an adult patient in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Thursday.
Thirty-four year old Adrienne Moton and 52-year old Sherry West both entered
guilty pleas to third-degree murder in the killing of viable newborns as well as
feeding a patient enough painkillers to cause her overdose and death.
Both women worked for Dr. Kermit Gosnell at Women's Medical Society, which
prosecutors termed "a decrepit and unsanitary clinic."
Sentencing of the two convicted killers is scheduled for December 2 before
Judge Benjamin Lerner. According to the Pennsylvania's criminal code the
maximum penalty for third-degree murder is 40 years in prison.
In addition to Moton and West, seven other suspects face charges in the case,
including the Dr. Gosnell, who the grand jury stated, killed babies and
endangered pregnant women, and that he regularly and illegally delivered live,
viable babies in the third trimester of pregnancy.
He then allegedly murdered these newborns by cutting their spinal cords
The grand jury heard testimony from a clinic co-worker of Moton's that a
patient gave birth to a large baby at the clinic. The child was then placed
inside of a toilet. Reportedly, the co-worker told them that the baby was
moving in the toilet water as if it was trying to swim.
The grand jury than heard testimony that "Moton reached into the toilet,
got the baby out and cut its neck."
West was charged with the murder of a 41-year-old patient named
The grand jury heard testimony that Mongar died from a severe heart attack
as a result of overdosing on the painkiller Demerol, said to be more potent than
The grand jury was told that West and another abortion clinic worker
administered the drug following physician Gosnell's order and Mongar died as
a result of what prosecutors called wanton and reckless behavior.
"This is just beyond horrifying. This is torture! This is sheer, senseless madness!
3rd Degree murder? Unbelievable. Who'll speak for the tortured babies?
So many spoke up against the Abu Ghraib incident ad nauseum, and yet there's
mere silence about this abattoir in Philly. Is America losing its soul or has it
lost it?" asked City College of New York's Anthony Lee Nieves.
According to several law enforcement officials, this case illustrates what occurs
when there is little oversight and "a lot of covering up to avoid perceived political
backlash against the abortion industry."
"When have you ever seen television cameras or journalists with video recorders
in an abortion clinic? What is there to hide?" asked former New York City
homicide detective Terry Knudsen
The Grand Jury issued a presentment recommending criminal charges against
Gosnell and his employees, including charges of murder against Kermit Gosnell,
Lynda Williams, Adrienne Moton, and Steven Massof for killing viable babies
born alive at the clinic, and charges of conspiracy to commit murder against
these persons and Sherry West.
Gosnell was also charged with infanticide and performing illegal late-
term abortions. Charged as co-conspirators were Williams, West, and
Pearl Gosnell, his wife.
With respect to the death of Karnamaya Mongar, Kermit Gosnell,
Lynda Williams, and Sherry West were charged with third-degree murder,
drug delivery resulting in death, drug violations, and conspiracy.
Gosnell operated a corrupt criminal enterprise, for which the Grand Jury
recommended racketeering charges against Kermit Gosnell, Lynda Williams,
herry West, Adrienne Moton, Maddline Joe, Tina Baldwin, Pearl Gosnell,
Steven Massof, and Eileen O’Neill.
Massof and O’Neill, who pretended to be doctors, will be charged with theft by
deception and conspiracy, with Gosnell, to deceive patients. Gosnell and Massof
are also charged with conspiracy and drug violations
for illegally dispensing narcotics.
