Gosnell’s Attorney: ‘Ludicrous’ ‘To Say a Baby is Born Alive Because It Moves One Time’ | CNS News
I wonder why ABC, NBC and CBS news haven’t covered this developing news story. Media censorship?

(CNSNews.com) –The defense attorney for late-term abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who is on trial for murdering babies who survived abortions, told a Philadelphia court today that it is “ludicrous” to claim that “a baby is born alive because it moves one time without any other movement.”
The judge in the case today threw out three of the eight murder charges against Gosnell.
“If we are going in this room to say a baby is born alive because it moves one time without any other movement, that is ludicrous,” defense attorney Jack McMahon said.
… Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart granted judgment of acquittal for the first-degree murder charges of three babies in the case, identified as “Baby B,” “Baby C,” and “Baby G.”
According to the grand jury report, Baby C was “moving and breathing for 20 minutes before an assistant came in and cut the spinal cord, just the way she had seen Gosnell do it so many times.”
Kareema Cross, who worked at the clinic, testified to the grand jury that the baby was moving and breathing for 20 minutes before Lynda Williams cut the back of its neck.
… During her testimony she said cutting the necks of babies born alive during abortion procedures was “standard procedure” at Womens Medical Society, Gosnell’s abortion clinic in West Philadelphia, to “ensure fetal demise.”
Gosnell’s defense lawyer Jack McMahon argued that Williams “only saw one arm, one movement, one spasm.” “This wasn’t a baby moving!” he said, when arguing that all counts against his client should be dropped.
