Abortion doctor found guilty, faces death penalty

PENNSYLVANIA —  Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell was found guilty on three counts of first degree of murder Monday. He now faces the death penalty.

Gosnell killed babies by using scissors to cut their spinal cords.

Police say some of those babies were born alive.

And some mothers who he performed abortions on were up to to their eighth month of pregnancy.

Gosnell's attorney said he respected the jury's efforts.

"A jury has spoken, and we respect that verdict. And, you know, it was a lot of hard work on both sides," said Jack McMahon. "And the jury worked hard too, and they came up with their verdict, and obviously we respect it."

Gosnell is not a board certified obstetrician or gynecologist.
