Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia doctor, is on trial for performing gruesome, illegal late-term abortions that led to the death of a woman and seven infants.
In Pennsylvania, abortions after 24 weeks of gestation are against the law. Gosnell regularly performed the procedure at 30 weeks of gestation or later.
Gosnell's clinic has been labeled a "house of horrors" and is beyond sickening, no matter where you stand on the issue of abortion rights' legality.
The case has already had a profound effect politically.
Anti-abortion advocates are using the high-profile case, which first made headlines in 2010, to boost support for new restrictions nationwide.
