(Billy Hallowell) Tuesday’s shocking courtroom drama during the Dr. Kermit Gosnell case sparked outrage and confusion among some Americans after a number of charges against the abortion doctor were dismissed. But on Wednesday, the ruling changed slightly.
During the proceedings, Judge Jeffrey Minehart threw out three counts of murder and five counts of corpse abuse, as TheBlaze previously reported. On Wednesday, however, the justice had a change of heart, reinstating one of the murder charges that he had tossed just 24 hours before.
Citing an error in judgement, Minehart recanted axing the murder charge for “Baby C,” the child who was purportedly alive for 20 minutes before its spine was cut. Some of Gosnell’s own staff members have reported seeing the baby breathe and move before being killed, LifeNews.com reports.
The Atlantic adds the following: “Baby C was moving and breathing for 20 minutes before an assistant came in and cut the spinal cord, just the way she had seen Gosnell do it so many times. And these were not even the worst cases.”
One of the more gruesome, graphic and troubling stories to come from the case, some were dumbfounded when Minehart dropped the charge surrounding it.
