Kermit Gosnell Gets Three Life Sentences

Ad Feedback

A judge sentenced abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell to a third life sentence Wednesday.

Earlier this week, Gosnell was convicted of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies who were born alive at his Philadelphia clinic.

Gosnell's three life sentences offer no chance at parole. That means the 72-year-old will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Jurors said that Gosnell's greed played a big part in their decision.

"I will not mince my words: Kermit Gosnell is a monster," Philadelphia district attorney R. Seth Williams said after the sentencing. "Any doctor who cuts into the necks, severing the spinal cords of living, breathing babies, who would survive with proper medical attention, is a murderer and a monster."

But Gosnell's lawyer, Jack J. McMahon, is still insisting on his client's innocence.

"He believes he never killed a live baby," Mr. McMahon told reporters. "The jury has made its decision on what happened here. We respect it, but that doesn't mean it's the truth."
