As the public awaits the verdict in “House of Horrors” abortionist Kermit Gosnell's murder trial, pro-life leaders say that the “post abortion” killings of babies born alive may not be all that unusual in the abortion industry. Gosnell is charged with the murders of four babies born alive at his Philadelphia clinic, and investigators speculate hundreds of babies may have been killed in similar manner by him or co-workers, having their spinal cords snipped with a surgical scissors after being delivered alive. Abortion industry observers say the mindset of death and disregard for babies that permeated Gosnell's Women's Medical Society has been on display at other clinics around the nation.
In 2008, Operation Rescue reported that a nurse working with George Tiller associate Shelley Sella, a circuit-riding late-term abortionist, allegedly witnessed Sella stab to death a baby born alive during a late-term abortion at Tiller's Women’s Health Care Services abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas. The nurse, identified as Tina David, a Tiller employee, “gave us a very specific eye-witness account about the incident,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We were told that the baby was 35 weeks gestation at the time of the abortion. The baby came out and was moving. Sella looked up at Ms. David, then picked up a utensil and stabbed the baby in the left ribcage, twisting the utensil until the baby quit moving. At 35 weeks, there is no doubt about viability. This is murder in anybody’s book.”
In March 2008, Students for Life in America released an undercover video in which Tiller, who was himself murdered in 2009, can be seen and heard saying that if a baby is born alive during an abortion, “it’s just sloppy technique. It is just technique that is reprehensible. The guy that did that ought to have his head beat up.”
