Summary, etc.:
Kermit Gosnell is America's most prolific serial killer, but he was no obvious criminal. The abortion doctor was a pillar of his community, "an advocate for women's "reproductive health," and a respected member of Philadelphia's professional elite. His Women's Medical Society Clinic looked like admirable community outreach by a brave doctor committed to upholding women's rights. Meanwhile, inside the filthy building, Gosnell was casually murdering born-alive infants, butchering women and making a macabre collection of severed babies' feet. His accomplices in crime were a staff of dropouts, drug addicts and unlicensed medical professionals posing as doctors. Luckily, Detective Jim Wood, a narcotics detective, opened a drug case against Gosnell. What he found when he served his warrant left even the most grizzled members of the police force stunned.
