Among the many atrocities revealed at Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s “House of Horrors” abortion clinic in West Philadelphia was that several of his staff provided medical services without the proper training or license to do so. Consequently, a woman died and seven newborn babies were killed by infanticide in Dr. Gosnell’s abortion clinic. He is now serving three consecutive life sentences in prison for his role in the deaths.
This week the Pennsylvania House of Representatives passed House Bill 587 to increase the penalty for those who commit the crime of impersonating a doctor of medicine. State Representative Matt Baker (R-Bradford, Tioga), prime sponsor of the bill, said, “Those in the medical profession are generally highly respected and trusted individuals whom people seek out when they are sick, vulnerable and looking for help. It is unconscionable that a person, for whatever reason, would pretend to be a doctor.” The legislation now moves to the state Senate.
