Abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell was convicted of three counts of murder today, but the jury found him not guilty of killing Baby E in one of this abortion-infanticide procedures.
Baby E was estimated to be at least 23 weeks gestation and maybe more. After Baby E was delivered, teen Gosnell clinic employee Ashley Baldwin heard the baby cry and called Kareema Cross for help. Cross described the baby’s cry as a “whine.”
“Ashley testified that she heard the baby cry in the large procedure room, the one used for later-term abortions, and saw the baby moving. She said Lynda Williams summoned Dr. Gosnell, who then went into the procedure room where the baby was,” prosecutors said. “Kareema Cross testified that Ashley had called her over, and that she heard this baby “whine” once while Dr. Gosnell was alone in the procedure room with the baby.”
“Ashley confirmed that Gosnell was the only person in the room with Baby E. When he came out of the room, the baby was dead. Gosnell put the baby’s remains in a waste bin. Ashley saw an incision in Baby’s E’s neck,” prosecutors added.

The Gosnell grand jury report has more information on Baby E and what happened to the newborn infant and abortion victim.
A fifth murder charge should be filed against Kermit Gosnell for the murder of a baby that Ashley Baldwin heard crying. We will refer to this victim as “Baby E.” Ashley Baldwin testified that she heard a baby crying in the large procedure room (the one used for later-term abortions) and saw it moving. She said Lynda Williams summoned Dr. Gosnell, who then went into the procedure room where the baby was. Ashley testified that Dr. Gosnell was the only person in the room with the baby, that he came out of the room and put the baby in the waste bin, and that she saw an incision. Kareema Cross testified that Ashley had called her over because she had heard the baby crying; Cross said that she heard this baby “whine” while Dr. Gosnell was alone in the procedure room with the baby.
Based on the testimony of the neonatology expert, we believe this baby must have been at least 23 weeks of age and, because it cried more than once, probably older. This baby was born alive, and consistent with the medical guidelines and standards cited by the neonatology expert should have been resuscitated. Instead, it was killed. We recommend a murder charge against Kermit Gosnell for killing “Baby E.”
