He was part of a super-coil abortion experiment in the early 70’s in which 9 of 15 patients suffered serious complications.
According to the Washington Post, 1 of the 40-plus lawsuits filed against him claimed another woman died from a botched abortion at his hands in 2000…
Semika Shirelle Shaw called the office the day after her abortion because she was bleeding badly but wasn’t told to get checked there or at a hospital, according to court documents. The lawsuit alleged that Shaw, a 22-year-old mother of two, died two days later of a perforated uterus and sepsis.
Malina Williams, a woman on whom Gosnell performed an abortion nearly 20 years ago (at age 13) recounted her experience for the Philadelphia Inquirer:
She said she had thought something was amiss when the West Philadelphia doctor eagerly agreed to perform the abortion, even though he allegedly didn’t have permission from her parents as required by state law.
After her procedure was over, Williams said she saw Gosnell cradling a bottle that contained the remains of her fetus. Her eyes darted away and landed on the room with the bottles.
“He left the door open,” said Williams, now 32. “I could see all the little babies in bottles filled with liquid, and I started crying.
“He said he did research on them. He said, ‘Don’t cry, don’t feel bad. Everybody does this.’ “
The ad in question was not about sexuality. It featured a father holding his son and the words, “All I want for my son is for him to grow up knowing how to do the right thing.”…
Focus on the Family spokesman Gary Schneeberger said that if such material were “all of a sudden labeled hate speech, we have deeper problems in our country than we even know.”
Williams said the decision to pull the ad was based not on the message but on the messenger.
