‘House of Horrors’ abortionist pleads not guilty to drug charges
January 24, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Abortionist Kermit Gosnell made a brief court appearance yesterday and entered a plea of not guilty to charges that he operated a pill mill out of his “house of horrors” abortion clinic between 2008 and January, 2010.
Gosnell is already being held without bail on seven murder charges for the deaths of one patient and the killings of six newborn babies, who were born alive then killed by stabbing and cutting their spinal cords with scissors. Nine of Gosnell’s unlicensed and unqualified employees were also charged with various charges from murder to participating in a corrupt organization. Since then six have pled guilty — three to murder charges — to avoid being tried with Gosnell.
The drug charges were added to Gosnell’s long list of abortion-related charges last month.

Authorities raided the medical offices of Kermit Gosnell in January, 2010, on suspicion that he was operating a pill mill that was the largest source of illegal painkillers sold on the streets of his city. That was when they discovered a squalid “house of horrors” where illegal late-term abortions were done on drugged, dazed women, and where the late-term babies were born alive then murdered by severing their spinal cords with scissors.
Gosnell is expected to be tried on the illegal abortion and murder charges in March, 2013. He could face the death penalty if convicted.
Attorneys for both sides of the abortion and drug cases have been placed under a gag order.
“We are thankful for the aggressive prosecution of Gosnell for all his crimes,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and the new Pro-Life Nation. “We look forward to Gosnell’s day in court where we pray his victims will receive the justice they deserve under the law.”
