Gosnell case fuels bitter U.S. abortion debate

(ABC News) One of the last people seated in the witness box at Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s murder trial was a character witness for a co-defendant, and had nothing to do with Gosnell’s abortion clinic.

But the woman happened to be six months pregnant, and nearly waddled to the stand. If the jury had any doubts about the second- or third-trimester abortions Gosnell performed at his west Philadelphia clinic, she offered a stark visual.

So, too, did the cellphone photographs staff took of a nearly 30-week baby so large that Gosnell callously joked it could “walk to the bus.”
