I am using the Grand Jury Report on the crimes of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell as the basis of this Wiki. I will add material to support my contention that though Gosnell is beyond the pale, this is mainly in the way he combined and refined aspects of the ghoulish and callous disregard for humanity often seen in abortionists. He was hardly a pioneer.

In order to distinguish between my own writings, and those of the Grand Jury, I will use a different font that makes the Grand Jury Report appear to be typed.




When investigators raided the clinic in February 2010, they sent the fetuses they discovered to the Philadelphia medical examiner’s office. The medical examiner concluded that two of them – aborted at 26 and 28 weeks – were viable, and another, aborted at 22 weeks, was possibly viable. The 28-week fetus, a male (Baby Boy B) had a surgical incision on the back of the neck, which penetrated the first and second vertebrae. The 22-week fetus, female, had a similar incision.

From the Grand Jury's Presentment:

We recommend a murder charge against Kermit Gosnell in the death of “Baby Boy B,” whose frozen remains were discovered during the February 2010 raid.

The search team discovered red biohazard bags containing the remains of 47 fetuses,which were turned over to the Philadelphia medical examiner. One was ”Baby Boy B,” found frozen in a plastic spring-water jug (labeled by the medical examiner as 1B). The medical examiner determined that this baby had a gestational age of at least 28 weeks.

According to the medical examiner’s report and testimony, the baby was viable and intact, except for a “surgical defect” at the base of his neck.



We also heard evidence that, after cutting the spinal cords of live babies, Gosnell would put the babies in cut-off milk jugs, water containers, and juice cartons. The intact body of one 28-week-old male, which we previously referred to as Baby Boy B, was discovered in a bag in the clinic’s freezer during the February 2010 raid. It was in a plastic water container with the top cut off, along with the placenta and gauze pads. The baby had a surgical incision at the base of the neck and was determined by the medical examiner to have been viable.

The Medical Examiner testified:

    • But certainly things like drink containers, milk containers, water containers, this is not something we do in medical practice. . . . What I do does not deal with living patients, and I would not put something in a plastic drink container. It just – it feels wrong I guess is what I’m saying. It feels wrong.

Based the evidence, we recommend that Gosnell be charged with five counts of abuse of corpse.




Also from the Grand Jury's Presentment:

Based on the following evidence of infanticide within the past two years, discovered in the February 2010 raid, we recommend that Gosnell be charged with two counts of infanticide:

The 28-week old male that we have referred to earlier as Baby Boy B, found frozen in container 1B, which was inside a red bag. Baby Boy B had a surgical incision at the base of the neck and was determined by the medical examiner to have been viable.

James Johnson, who worked for Gosnell since 2001, testified that his duties including collecting the red biohazard bags of fetal remains and putting them in boxes for pickup by an outside firm, Stericycle. Johnson told us that in the last two years, Gosnell did not always pay his Stericycle bills; as a result, in 2009 and 2010, fetal remains were not regularly collected. These remains, including Baby Boy B and Baby Girl A, were left in freezers, where investigators found them.
