Pearl Gosnell, in case you don’t know is the wife of the infamous abortion Doctor Kermit Gosnell who has been charged with murdering a woman who had an abortion at his West Philadelphia clinic. He’s also charged with killing seven newborns.Kermit Gosnell: Philadelphia Police Department
Some of those illegal abortions he was performing were so “late term” they were actually full term as in a lot of the babies were born alive and well. Doctor Gosnell’s solution was to sever their spines at the neck with a large pair of scissors. His loving wife, Pearl was by his side, handing him the “instruments.”
Pearl pleaded guilty Tuesday to performing an abortion after 24 weeks, criminal conspiracy and participating in a corrupt organization.
According to the grand jury report, (I actually read quite a bit of it) the “Women’s Medical Society” was the fancy sounding name of the “house of horrors” clinic at 3801 Lancaster Avenue, run by Kermit Gosnell, M.D. for almost four decades. The clinic reeked of animal urine, courtesy of the cats that were allowed to roam (and defecate) freely. Furniture and blankets were stained with blood. Instruments were not properly sterilized. And scattered throughout, in cabinets, in the basement, in a freezer, in jars and bags and plastic jugs, were fetal remains. I saw pictures of aborted fetuses and dead babies. Horrific is the word that comes to mind.
Pearl Gosnell who has no medical license, worked at the clinic as a full-time medical assistant from 1982 until she married Kermit Gosnell in 1990. After that, she said she worked there “maybe every other day,” bringing “paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, soap.” On Sundays she assisted in the procedure room and monitored the patients in the recovery room.
Pearl claimed that she was certified to take temperatures and blood pressure by Lyons Technical Institute, but could not produce any records because she said the school had closed. She is licensed in cosmetology.
Excuse me while I throw up. That’s a load of crap. She pleaded guilty to assisting in (one) late term abortion. There was proof of seven dead babies. God only knows the actual number. So I’m trying to figure out why she’s getting what amounts to a murder pass. According to what I’ve read. Most of the really late term abortions were done on Sundays or other days the “so called” clinic was closed. Mrs. Pearl told the grand jury she was the only one who assisted the doctor on those days. I’d be surprised if she doesn’t testify against her husband. Did I mention she’s a mother – as in she has a teenage daughter? I wrote previously about how Pearl puzzles me. She still does!
I’ve been literally shaking my head for two days now.
