The notorious abortionist Kermit Gosnell filed a lawsuit against the Philadelphia Daily News and city District Attorney Seth Williams last week, claiming that they “sensationalized” the gruesome details of his abortion facility, according to The Inquirer/Daily News.

The 14-page legal document claims that in 2015 Williams made several public comments and the Daily News published two articles that “utilized malicious sensationalism without regard to truth or factual evidence.”

Gosnell is presently in jail serving a life sentence after being convicted of murdering three newborn babies, involuntary manslaughter of a female patient, illegal late-term abortion, violation of the 24-hour informed consent law and numerous other charges. His staff, many who were untrained and unlicensed, testified that he often would allow late-term babies to be born alive and then snip the backs of their necks to kill them.

In spite of the horror of his abortion facility, Gosnell wrote that the effects of the articles wronged his family and himself, according to the news report.

“The demeaning and monsterization has included front-page headlines, articles, editorials and even cartoons. Irreparable harm has been effected upon [Gosnell] and his family for which rectification and compensation is warranted,” according to the lawsuit.

Gosnell’s claims continued: “Slander, libel and defamation should not be allowable even after a conviction. … A person’s integrity and good name need be respected by ethical conduct until the process of appeal and sentence correction has been exhausted.”

There have been countless stories of what happened to women and their babies in Gosnell’s “house of horrors” abortion facility in north Philadelphia. LifeNews previously reported on cases that were revealed during Gosnell’s trial in 2013:

According to a news report, [Gosnell employee Steven] Massof told the jury that women were often given drugs to speed up delivery of the baby so the abortion/infanticide could take place: He testified that at times, when women were given medicine to speed up their deliveries, “it would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place.”

The article continued:

It was revealed that on the night patient Karnamaya Mongar died the emergency exit was found to be locked and down a hallway crammed full of broken office furniture and other debris. Workers could not find the key as emergency personnel sought a way to get their Code Blue patient out of the facility and into an ambulance.
