Baby killer Kermit Gosnell blames ‘Catholic’ police for conviction, believes he’ll be released

Kermit Gosnell, the notorious abortionist serving a life sentence for killing live-born babies after botched abortions and charges connected to the death of Karnamaya Mongar due to the failed abortion process. Now speaking in interviews for a new book, Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer, the Philadelphia abortionist places blame on police for his conviction.

The men “were motivated by strong moral objectives rather than the law,” Gosnell told the interviewer alluding to the police officers’ Catholic faith.

The book contains information from police reports, Gosnell’s trial, interviews with people who knew or worked with him and a two-hour prison interview with the murderer himself.

The book’s co-authors Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAteer said Gosnell was chillingly calm throughout the interview. His obviously distorted mental state came through when he said, “There are several reasons for the cats” at his filthy clinic, which has since been dubbed the “House of Horrors.”

Dr. Gosnell’s “House of Horrors” revealed several horrific issues in abortion clinics around the country.

“I had cats because there was a Delaware patient who had paid one thousand dollars for a procedure and as she was in the waiting room, a mouse ran over her feet and that was just unacceptable.”

McElhinney and McAteer could only listen as he claimed his clinic was only dirty due to “the weather and debris from a few overgrown houseplants” patients gave him as personal gifts.

Police reports clarified Gosnell was the only doctor working at the clinic and there were investigations by the state health department in the 90s, which “noted several violations of Pennsylvania abortion regulations” but “based on more promises to improve documentation and filing” granted the clinic approval for one more year.

He is so certain he will be released that he stays in shape because he wants to compete in triathlons once he is out.

“As a boy I always promised myself I would never look like the before pictures in the Atlas fitness ads. So I am working a lot on my upper body,” Gosnell told the authors.

“It helps that I very strongly believe myself to be innocent of the heinous crimes of which I am accused…I continue to feel optimistic of the eventual outcome…the vindication of what I’ve done, why I’ve done it and how [it] will become accepted within my lifetime…It’s out of sight and out of my control. But I feel strongly that that will occur.”

Karnamaya Mongar died in 2009 after an abortion by Kermit Gosnell

Gosnell was convicted in 2013 on three counts of murdering children who were born alive, and on the involuntary manslaughter of Karnamaya Mongar. He was originally charged with eight counts of murder but some of the cases were dropped.

A total of 47 fetuses were found in his clinic, but it could not be determined whether many of them were born alive. Gosnell killed the babies by sticking scissors into the backs of their necks, severing the spinal cord if they were born alive. He called the process ‘snipping.’

Detectives even believe Gosnell dumped some of the remains into the waters off his home in Brigantine, New Jersey, where they were devoured by crabs. He and two other men were spotted emptying bags from a dock, but by the time divers searched the waters they found nothing.

‘[I]nvestigators believe fetal remains would likely have been completely eaten by the crabs that crawl in those waters,’ McElhinney and McAleer wrote in their book.

A movie based on the book, starring Earl Billings as Gosnell and Dean Cain as lead investigator Jim ‘Woody’ Wood, has been filmed, but no Hollywood studio will financially back the distribution.

Dr. Gosnell was selling prescriptions that fueled the city’s illegal trade in opioid painkillers.
