One of Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s medical assistants has been sentenced to 5 to 10 years in prison for her role in the death of an abortion patient. 54 year-old Sherry West sobbed with her head down on the defense table, after a Philadelphia judge imposed her sentence yesterday. She pled guilty to third-degree murder for administering a lethal dose of Demerol to an abortion patient at Dr. Gosnell’s notorious “house of horrors” abortion clinic in 2009. West is one of nine Gosnell workers charged in connection with the crimes that took place there.  The doctor is serving a life sentence for killing babies born alive at the clinic.
