    Someone please explain for me: If they jury does NOT come to a unanimous consensus on all counts, does that mean a mis-trial? Or it will have to be re-tried? Will Gosnell walk free?

    The charges are\were separable. IOW, they could be hung on those charges but convict or acquit on the others. A hung jury would mean a mistrial on those counts but no the others. The prosecution can then retry those charges, if they think they have a strong enough case. As it stands, he's been convicted of three counts of 1st degree murder.

    Doctor Kermit Gosnell found guilty of murdering infants in late-term abortions

    URGENT: A Philadelphia doctor was found guilty Monday of murdering three babies born alive in an abortion clinic, Fox News confirms. He was acquitted in the fourth baby's death, and found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the overdose death of an adult patient.

    Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, was convicted of first-degree murder and could face execution in the deaths of three babies who authorities say were delivered alive and then killed with scissors at his grimy clinic, in a case that became a flashpoint in the nation's debate over abortion.

    Gosnell was cleared in the death of a fourth baby, who prosecutors say let out a soft whimper before he snipped its neck.

    Gosnell was also found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the drug-overdose death of a patient who had undergone an abortion.

    I just don't understand how anyone can look at this case and still make an argument for abortion. Makes no sense.
