The murder trial of a Philadelphia abortion provider is entering its fifth week but it will be days if not weeks before the defense starts its case.

Prosecutors will continue to call witnesses this week as they pursue their death-penalty case against Dr. Kermit Gosnell.

Several patients and about a half-dozen former employees have testified about outdated, dirty — and allegedly deadly — conditions at Gosnell's clinic.

Gosnell is charged in the deaths of seven babies allegedly killed after they were born alive. He is also charged in the overdose death of a 41-year-old patient.

The former employees describe doing ultrasounds, giving intravenous drugs and helping with abortions, even though they had no training or certification.

Defense lawyer Jack McMahon insists that no babies were born alive.
