(PHILADELPHIA) -- A Philadelphia doctor has been charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a woman and seven babies. Prosecutors call it the case of a doctor "who killed babies and endangered women."
Doctor Kermit Gosnell has been accused of murdering seven newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors. He and his staff are also charged with killing a patient who was given a lethal dose of Demerol. Court records say the clinic he ran in west Philadelphia "reeked of animal urine and scattered throughout in jars, bags and cabinets were fetal remains. They say Gosnell's business "was not health; it was profit."
