Every so often in such a serious matter as the Kermit Gosnell murder trial, a little levity take place.

As local Philadelphia-based reporter J.D. Mullane reports today, Gosnell demanded that uniformed officers address him as “Doctor.” They refused.

There’s no background on whether the exchange took place — whether it was in the courtroom, in his jail cell or during one of the times he was taken to or from the courtroom during the trial.

Either way, it’s confirmation that those responsible for Gosnell’s imprisonment pending the outcome of the trial understand that an abortion practitioner who killed babies doesn’t deserve the respected title normally afforded to an upstanding physician.



As LifeNews has reported, Gosnell is in solitary confinement in prison awaiting the verdict in the case.
