Pa. Abortion Doctor Gosnell Gets Third Life Sentence

Wednesday, 15 May 2013 11:57 AM

A Philadelphia abortion doctor has been sentenced to a third life term for killing an aborted baby that he described as so big it could "walk to the bus."

Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted this week of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies born alive, then stabbed with scissors. He was given two life sentences Tuesday in a deal with prosecutors that spares him a potential death sentence, and the third sentence was handed down Wednesday.

The 72-year-old Gosnell has also been sentenced to 2 ½ to five years in prison for the 2009 overdose death of a patient. The sentences are consecutive, meaning Gosnell will spend the rest of his life in prison.

The case has made him a flashpoint in the nation's debate over legalized abortion.
