After Gosnell’s ''House of Horrors'': Women’s Health and Abortion in America

On May 13, 2013, late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell was convicted of first-degree murder in the gruesome deaths of three infants who were born alive after botched abortions. He was also found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Karnamaya Mongar, a 41-year-old woman who died from an overdose of anesthetic drugs during an abortion procedure. The trial leading to his conviction detailed the murders of hundreds of newborns and unthinkable mistreatment of women that became routine in his filthy West Philadelphia clinic. 

Gosnell’s trial and conviction shed light on one of the darker corners of the U.S. abortion industry and reinvigorated debate about late-term abortion and the health and safety of women. Join us on the one-year anniversary of Gosnell’s conviction as an expert panel explores the medical evidence of abortion’s harm to women, late-term abortion laws in the United States, and how states are protecting women and children.
