Philadelphia abortion doctor charged with 8 murders, including 7 babies killed with scissors

Yet another item for the "abortion is a shady business" file:

Gosnell "induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord," Williams said.

Of course it's natural that some abortionist would be caught doing that. It's only a short step from killing six-month fetuses in the womb and six-month fetuses who are completely born.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: feminists do not care about the fetuses being killed. They might recoil in horror at the account of a newborn have his spinal cord snapped with a pair of scissors. But had the same newborn had been ripped limb from limb in the womb, that wouldn't matter to them because the fact that the baby is inside the mother makes all the difference and justifies that pain and suffering. As if the mother had no responsibility towards that child.

Some women came from across the mid-Atlantic for the illegal late-term abortions, authorities said. White women from the suburbs were ushered into a separate, slightly cleaner area because Gosnell believed they were more likely to file complaints, Williams said.

Question: if there is a demand for these illegal late-term abortions, where are the coathanger abortions that are supposed to take place when abortion is criminalized?

It makes you wonder what kind of illegal late-term abortions we are talking about, because abortions for fetal malformation are generally legal even in the 3rd trimester in the US-- I could be wrong. It's elective third trimester abortions that tend to be criminalized.

And in the eyes of feminists, they should be legal. If a baby has to suffer and die because of some woman's choice, their attitude is: tough luck, baby.
