Kermit Gosnell killed viable children, according to expert

Courtroom sketch from Gosnell's trial
During testimony on March 20, Dr. Daniel Conway, an expert in neonatal-perinatal medicine, testified that one of the children killed by abortionist Kermit Gosnell was 27-29 weeks old.

"I wouldn't be surprised if this baby was 27, 28, 29 weeks," Conway told the court.

After examining a photo of Baby A in the fetal position, Conway says he was able to estimate its age based on the baby's skin texture and visible hair. He believes the baby could have survived if born that day.

"That baby survives and survives infant born at 27, 29 weeks...85-percent of the time do very well," he said.
