An alleged late term abortion/infanticide clinic has led to murder arrests. From the story:
Eyewitness News has learned that a West Philadelphia doctor, his wife and eight other suspects are now under arrest following a grand jury Investigation. Sources say Dr. Kermit Gosnell faces eight counts of murder in the death of a woman following a botched abortion at his office at 38th and Lancaster Avenues, along with the deaths of seven other babies who, prosecutors allege, were born alive following illegal late-term abortions.
Four of the suspects, some improperly licensed, also face multiple counts of murder for allegedly killing the newborns. All of the suspects are now behind bars after warrants were served overnight.
Federal charges could also lie, I would think, under the Born Alive Infants Protection Act.
I think all late term abortions should be outlawed. If the mother’s life is in danger, deliver the child. But I am glad to see law enforcement taking infanticides after abortion seriously.
