“3 murder charges against Pa. abortion doc tossed”
By MARYCLAIRE DALE
“Common pleas court Judge Jeffrey Minehart dismissed three first-degree murder charges Tuesday against Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Minehart has not explained the reasoning behind his ruling.
Prosecutors have argued that the babies were viable and Gosnell and his staff cut them in the back of the neck to kill them.
Defense lawyer Jack McMahon had argued Tuesday “there is not one piece …. of objective, scientific evidence that anyone was born alive” at Gosnell’s clinic.”
