Jurors begin weighing in on murder charges in Kermit Gosnell abortion trial

Jurors begin weighing in on murder charges in Kermit Gosnell abortion trial, On April 30 Huffington Post reports that the jurors trying the Kermit Gosnell abortion case are beginning to weigh murder charges after aborting four babies that were born living. Gosnell performed thousands of abortions in his thirty year career. He claims that he was providing an "out" for women and teens that had gotten pregnant and didn't want the baby.

According to prosecutors, Gosnell didn't know how to perform a proper abortion and would cut the back of a baby's neck to sever the spine, causing the baby's death. He is also being charged in the death of a woman who came into his clinic in 2009 for an abortion and was given anesthesia and monitored by two medical assistants and a teenager.

Prosecutors are partly blaming state officials that were supposed to check into the clinic regularly because they hadn't done so since the early 90s. Jurors are beginning to weigh in on whether or not Kermit Gosnell will be joining the other eight employees that have already plead guilty to murder. The trial has been ongoing for the past six weeks. Officials are hoping to wrap things up with the jury by the end of this week.
