'House of Horrors' Abortion Clinic Employee to Face Trial

Phoenixville's Eileen O'Neill worked at the West Philadelphia clinic, according to police.

A 56-year-old Phoenixville woman is scheduled to stand trial for her role at a West Philadelphia abortion clinic media outlets have referred to as a “House of Horrors,” Philly.com is reporting.

According to the publication, Eileen O'Neill worked at the Women's Medical Society health clinic, which authorities raided three years ago.

O’Neill faces charges of theft by deception for allegedly posing as a doctor despite not having a license. the grand jury report called this claim "a sham." She, according to the report, introduced herself to patients as a clinician, diagnosed conditions, prescribed medication, and signed charts.

Police say the man who ran the clinic, Kermit Barron Gosnell, delivered seven babies before killing them with scissors, and prescribed medicine that killed a woman after she had an abortion at the clinic.

The grand jury report added that the clinic was in gruesome condition when authorities raided it.

“The search team discovered fetal remains haphazardly stored throughout the clinic—in bags, milk jugs, orange juice cartons and even in cat-food containers. Some fetal remains were in a refrigerator, others were frozen,” according to the Grand Jury. (Warning: Details in the report are very graphic)

Jury selection for the trial began on Monday and, according to Philly.com, could take weeks.

While, unfortunately, abortion is legal, does one not know it is murder?!? Life begins at conception!! And if you choose murder. at least choose a so called reputable hospital for the slaughter!! These people in charge are subhuman!!

I just read through the report and I can't believe this....all of the workers, the doctor and even some of those patients who aborted their kids at 7-8 months should be thrown in a pit. This is more horrible than I can say.

That was one of the most disturbing things I've read, ever! OMG, the inhumanity of it is just unbelievable.

This sounds like the days before Roe Wade; how on earth are these things happening today?
Phil March 06, 2013 at 10:42 PM
I don't even have the words to describe how disturbing and inhumane this is! Let us hope justice is served and all those involved are held accountable. I would love to believe that it is a wake up call for the government agencies that SHOULD have been regulating but I fear that will not be the case.

I assume your role model is the catholic church............those are the people who are sub human from the pope (who now must live in exile in vatican l city, or risk arrest. Life begins when the cord is cut and the baby is separated completely from the mother

Destroying children is not what got him in trouble, but the unsanitary conditions. The government doesn't care if kids are killed with scissors; Planned Parenthood has been using scissors for years. If this guy had keep the place clean, and followed a few other details, like dumping the children's bodies into the appropriate medical waste, he could have been a speaker - a hero - at the DNC convention.
