The Philadelphia doctor was found guilty of murdering three babies after botched late-term abortions and was given life in prison Tuesday.
A Philadelphia doctor found guilty of murdering three babies born alive in an abortion clinic serving low-income women agreed to two life sentences Tuesday, and was sentenced to a third Wednesday. Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, agreed to his sentences and waived his right to an appeal in order to avoid the possibility of being condemned to death.

(WARNING: The video above contains graphic images.) *** Fifth District DFL challenger Gary Boisclair is back with another graphic ad—this time targeting Rep. Keith Ellison’s (D-MN) views on abortion. Boisclair is running in the DFL primary on a traditionally conservative platform. Some accuse him of launching the primary to exploit a loophole that allows the airing of graphic anti-abortion ads. Boisclair, himself, concedes “that’s one of the one of the sub-goals of the mission.” Ironically, the ad begins with Boisclair saying, “This is beautiful, beautiful beyond words,” as photos of mothers and babies flash onto the screen.

Gary Boisclair doesn't expect it to air until 45 days before the primary.
(Editor's note: The video can be viewed by clicking on the link below the photo of Gary Boisclair. WARNING: It contains graphic images.)

Keith Ellison shows graphic images of murdered non-Muslims and slams Ellison for swearing an oath on the Koran, which Boisclair argues promotes violence against Christians and Jews. The ad has not yet run on television, but Boisclair told Patch he plans to air it “once my coffers get filled.” Ellison was sworn in to the House during an official ceremony conducted with all new members—the en masse oath of office that takes place on the House floor, noted Jennifer Gore, an Ellison spokeswoman.
