Abortion clinic workers plead guilty to murder

Two abortion clinic workers pled guilty yesterday to third-degree murder charges for the roles they played in the deaths of an infant who survived an abortion and a woman who died during an abortion. The two women were employed by Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell.
Adrienne Moton, 34, of Upper Darby, admitted to killing a baby delivered alive. Sherry West, 52, of Philadelphia, pleaded guilty in the death of a 41-year-old immigrant who was given a lethal overdose of painkillers and anesthesia......

Moton, who knew Gosnell through his niece, assisted with abortions and followed Gosnell's practice of using scissors to cut the spinal cords of late-term fetuses, the report said.

Like many newborns, Baby D was delivered by a woman who spent hours in labor over a toilet, one of Moton's coworkers, Kareema Cross, told the grand jury.

"The baby was moving and looked like it was swimming," said Cross, who was not charged. "Moton reached into the toilet, got the baby out, and cut its neck."
