Dr. Kermit Gosnell Sentenced To 30 Years For Selling Drugs


A Philadelphia abortion doctor already sentenced to life in prison for killing three infants during late-term abortions was sentenced Monday to an additional 30 years for selling painkillers and other medication, CBS Philly reported.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, pleaded guilty to pill mill charges in July. He admitted that he sold nearly one million doses of Oxycodone and the anti-anxiety med Xanas, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. The prescription drug dealing took place from 2008 to 2010, the Inquirer reported.

Gosnell's admission that he was making money on the side by selling illegal meds came after a jury convicted him in May of killing infants born during late-term abortions.

The drug charges paled in comparison to the horrors that emerged about his West Philly clinic during the illegal abortion trial. Gosnell snipped the baby's spinal cords with scissors.
