Ben Carson v. Kermitt Gosnell
Iowahawk sums it all up in less than 140 characters:
I linked this as an afterthought in my last post but it is more important than that: Why did Gosnell keep so many serial-killer trophies? He claims they were kept "for research," but witnesses say they never saw any "research" being done on them, nor did anyone come by to collect them for "research."
It's one of the macabre mysteries in the case of Kermit Gosnell: Why did the West Philadelphia abortion doctor keep the severed feet of fetuses preserved in specimen jars?
In testimony Tuesday, Adrienne Moton, a former worker at Gosnell's Women's Medical Society, told a Philadelphia jury that Gosnell once explained that he did so in case patients requested them for future identification or DNA samples.
But an expert on fetal development, testifying Wednesday at Gosnell's abortion-murder trial, said that was news to him.
"Do you think there is any medical reason to save the foot of a baby?" Assistant District Attorney Edward Cameron asked.
"In my practice, we would have no reason to save the foot, and I've never seen that done," replied Daniel H. Conway, a physician and neonatologist at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children.
It must be remembered he destroyed most of all his records (and fabricated them in the first place, training his staff of incompetents how to create a false ultrasound that made a baby look younger than it was). So what on earth compelled him to keep this particular accounting of his work?
