Abortion Doctor Gets 3rd Life Sentence

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A U.S. abortion doctor was sentenced Wednesday to a third life term for killing an aborted baby that he described as so big it could “walk to the bus.” The case has made Dr. Kermit Gosnell a flashpoint in the nation’s bitter debate over legalized abortion.

Gosnell was convicted this week of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies born alive then stabbed with scissors. He was given two life sentences Tuesday in a deal with prosecutors that spared him a potential death sentence. The third sentence was handed down Wednesday.
