Expert: Clinic's anesthesia policy 'reprehensible'
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — An anesthesiology professor called it "reprehensible" that an abortion provider medicated women based on their ability to pay, as alleged at the provider's murder trial.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell is charged in the drug overdose death of a 41-year-old patient, and the deaths of seven babies allegedly born alive at his West Philadelphia clinic. The woman, a recent immigrant, weighed only about 100 pounds and did not speak English.
Hand-scrawled clinic notes show she received two heavy doses of sedatives and narcotics during a 2009 abortion, despite signs of respiratory distress after the first dose. She was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
