You know the name Kermit Gosnell as the gruesome late-term abortion practitioner convicted on multiple counts of murder. But you probably don’t know 22-year-old Barron Alexander.

Alexander is Gosnell’s son, who legally changed his name two years ago because he was having trouble getting a job due to the fact that his last name was Gosnell in a city where the abortionists name was shameful.

This is the sad legacy of a young man whose father killed people in the abortion industry for decades and whose mother is also behind bars for her role.

From local reports:

The son of Kermit Gosnell, the infamous Philadelphia abortion doctor serving a life sentence for killing newborn children and at least one adult, is now in the hospital fighting for his life after an alleged home invasion.

Police say Gosnell’s son, 22-year-old Barron Alexander was shot several times while he was burglarizing a row home shared by a group of undergrads in West Philadelphia on Wednesday morning.

The incident occurred on the 3700 block of Brandywine Avenue in the Mantua neighborhood around 7 a.m., according to Philadelphia Police.

Investigators say Alexander broke into the home while the three male residents were home. According to police, he broke into the home three times, stealing cash and electronics — including an X-Box and a laptop.

Police Capt. John Przepiorka said Alexander went through a rear bathroom window during the third break-in, causing two of the residents to wake up.

“He was taking items from the property and a resident from the property woke up startled,” said Przepiorka. “A struggle started at that point, the resident screamed for help.”

A second roommate then shot Alexander multiple times, said Przepiorka.
