Kermit Gosnell is a name that lives in infamy throughout most of America. However, the near-press blackout on his trial greatly limited the coverage he received – particularly on the coasts.
 
Gosnell was a late-term abortion doctor that preformed atrocities in his laboratory and “hospital.”

The conditions in pracitice weren't simply unhygienic. They were appalling, with cat feces littering the floor all and about aborted fetuses preserved in plastic bags.

Gosnell preformed third trimester abortions. Sometimes the stress of the procedure would induce labor, and the doctor would crush the skulls of crying – newly born – babies with a pair of forceps.

His cruelty reportedly went overlooked because he worked in an impoverished and underserved community. One AfricanAmerican witness thought, "this is what a minority clinic looked like."
 
Convicted for murdering three infants after they were born alive and other atrocities, Gosnell will die in federal prison.
