The Gosnell Project:
Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell was responsible for running an abortion clinic specializing in illegal late-term abortions. He is currently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole after being convicted of 3 counts of first degree murder, and 1 count of involuntary manslaughter. These convictions represent only a small fraction of what went on in Gosnell’s facility which has been described by investigators and in the media as a “house of horrors” and “a charnel house.” Gosnell is responsible for the deaths and injuries of several women seeking abortions and countless children, both unborn and, in many cases, born. Gosnell would make a practice of severing the spines of infants who had survived abortions in his clinic. The facility was also remarkable for the filthy and unsafe conditions in which procedures were performed.
One Kermit Gosnell is too many. Unfortunately, as much as we would like to believe he is unique, anecdotal evidence suggests this is not the case. Abortion clinics in our own state are not required to come up to the same standards as outpatient surgical facilities and enforcement of health regulations on these clinics has always been lax.
How many Kermit Gosnells are hiding in Massachusetts?
The first phase of the Gosnell Project is MCFL’s effort to find out. As part of an information gathering effort MCFL sent letters to several officers and departments of the Commonwealth requesting information relative to oversight and regulation of Massachusetts abortion facilities and several congressional investigations of the same.
The first step in doing something about Massachusetts’ Gosnells is gathering information and the letters below are the first step in that process. Click on the links below to read the letters.
