Millions of Americans, no doubt including many Connecticut residents, were likely shocked to learn of the gruesome details recently revealed in trial regarding an abortion doctor accused of terminating almost full term babies outside of the womb. Jurors convicted the doctor this week of killing three babies born alive during a criminal trial.
Beyond the criminal trial, the country may also see medical malpractice civil trials brought against the physician, who made millions performing abortions, both legal and illegal, over the course of his career. States are prohibiting from outlawing abortions in early pregnancy, but may do so when the fetus' life becomes viable outside the womb. According to sources, the convicted physician was delivering live babies and then cutting their spinal cords to complete the abortion.
