Gosnell trial update 4/12/13

Today the jury heard testimony from Tina Baldwin on how Kermit Gosnell's co-defendant Eileen O'Neill fled out the back door when the FBI raided Gosnell's clinic because she didn't have a medical license.  While unlicensed O'Neill's part of the clinic was cleaner than Gosnell's and that's why he would take the majority of his white patients to O'Neill's side. 

She described O'Neill as a caring doctor who saw mostly older patients for high blood pressure or diabetes. O'Neill kept her office neat, in contrast to the rest of the clinic, Tina Baldwin said. So that's where Gosnell steered wealthy or white patients, she said. Gosnell also met with them and administered their medications himself, she said.

"Nine out of 10 times, if the patient was white ... he didn't want me to (administer the drugs), because he wanted to meet with them himself," she said.
