Some of the details are gruesome, from Gosnell allegedly “snipping” the spinal cords of babies to keeping jars of their feet.Last year, Obama offered a statement on the killing of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, noting that he was wary of “impairing” the ongoing legal process.- Brett LoGiuratoComments are disabled as legal proceedings are active.Read: US doctor charged with killing seven babies > China could be the biggest loser from the Saudi Arabia oil attack See how smoggy downtown LA was the day before Trump is expected to demolish California’s attempts to tackle auto emissions 10 things in tech you need to know today last_img
