Dismal chamber to become center of life and hope or poor families

There is such a thing as a second chance. The notorious Delaware clinic in which abortionist Kermit Gosnell performed late-term abortions and executed children after birth will see a second life as an emergency food and support center for poor families. Lutheran Community Services purchased the building in Wilmington to serve as its new headquarters.

The Philadelphia clinic was described as a chaotic 'house of horrors,' with the remains of children in the staff refrigerator, specimen jars of severed feet in his office and dirty medical instruments in the surgery rooms.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Knowing full well of the building's gruesome history - an evil place where poor immigrant women underwent procedures in filthy, dire circumstances and both women and children died, the Christian group intends to turn the building into a place of hope for the less fortunate.

Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortionist who was sentenced to life in prison, used the Delaware facility for utter evil. Gosnell and his assistants would induce illegal, late-term abortions at the Delaware clinic and would then complete them at his west Philadelphia clinic, the Women's Medical Society.

No child need ever go to bed hungry -- go here!


The 73-year-old Gosnell was found guilty of murdering three babies that had been brought to term. A jury also found him guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the drug overdose death of a 41-year-old patient, Karnamaya Mongar.

The Philadelphia clinic was described as a chaotic "house of horrors," with the remains of children in the staff refrigerator, specimen jars of severed feet in his office and dirty medical instruments in the surgery rooms.

It was also the shame of some leaders in the community in which Gosnell operated. Authorities in Pennsylvania had failed to conduct routine inspections of all its abortion facilities for 15 years by the time Gosnell's facility was raided as part of a prescription drug investigation.

The doctor pleaded guilty in federal court to running a pill mill for addicts and drug dealers. Two top state health officials were fired, and the state imposed tougher rules for abortion clinics as a result.

Former clinic employees testified that Gosnell routinely performed illegal abortions past Pennsylvania's 24-week limit. They also testified that Gosnell delivered babies who were still alive. He and his assiatnts would then execute them by snipping their spines with scissors.

The doctor also hired high school dropouts and other unqualified people to engage in these brutal and evil acts. This untrained and inexperienced "doctors" performed abortions, administered anesthesia and monitored high-risk patients.

Gosnell was spared the death penalty after striking a plea deal. He will serve his life sentences consecutively and without parole after giving up his right to appeal.
