It Will Not Be Just Kermit Gosnell on Trial

A judge recently ruled that employees of Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia abortion clinic will stand trial with him.  Attorneys for a health care worker and office administrator tried to persuade the judge that it would be unfair for the employees to be included in the same trial since the charges against them were less significant than the charges against Gosnell.

The judge denied the motion and ruled that separate criminal trials would put excessive burden on the state and on the families of the victims.

Further pretrial hearings are scheduled this month and again in November.
