Adrienne Moton, 34, and Sherry West, 52, are scheduled to plead guilty for contributing to deaths that occurred in the filthy, unlicensed West Philadelphia abortion clinic run by Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 70.....
Moton, of Upper Darby, was to be tried for murder, conspiracy, racketeering and corruption related to the death of a viable baby born alive at the clinic. She was an unlicensed worker who routinely and illegally administered anesthesia to patients, the District Attorney's Office said at the time of her arrest.
West, of Newark, Del., was to be tried for third-degree murder in Mongar's death and related counts.
Part of North Carolina's informed consent law will take effect but their ultrasound requirement is being held up by a U.S. District Court Judge Catherine Eagles
She said the North Carolina abortion law "goes well beyond" requirements that patients give informed consent to medical procedures. The ultrasound provision could compel "an unwilling speaker to deliver visual and spoken messages to a listener who is not listening or looking," the judge wrote.
Eagles said the provision is "likely to harm the psychological health of the very group the state purports to protect."
Ohio prolife groups are feuding.
Ohio Right to Life has been at odds with Faith2Action since its founder — activist Janet Folger Porter — returned to Ohio in January. She has been pushing the Heartbeat Bill, which would ban Abortions once a fetal heartbeat could be detected, sometimes as early as six weeks into pregnancy. If passed, it would be the most stringent Abortion restriction in the country.
Ohio Right to Life has remained neutral on the bill out of concern it reaches too far and can't sustain a court challenge. The group is spearheading a coordinated effort among anti-Abortion and pro-family groups that's also linked to the fetal heartbeat. It's advocating informed consent bills in all 50 states requiring women to see and hear the fetal heartbeat before agreeing to an Abortion.
