A medical assistant admits she cut the spines of at least 10 babies during unorthodox abortions at a Philadelphia clinic.

And she says Dr. Kermit Gosnell did the same to terminate pregnancies.

Gosnell, the clinic owner, is on trial for murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies.

Prosecutors say he killed late-term babies after they were born alive, in violation of state abortion laws. Gosnell's lawyer denies the murder charges and disputes the gestational ages, calling them inexact estimates.

Employee Adrienne Moton says she took a cellphone photograph of one baby because she thought he could have survived, given his size and pinkish color. She had measured the fetus at nearly 30 weeks. Jurors saw the photograph Tuesday.

The 35-year-old Moton also admits administering narcotics. She has pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and awaits sentencing.
