Kermit Gosnell, already sentenced to life in prison without parole for murdering babies who were still alive at his Philadelphia abortion clinic, was sentenced to 30 more years in prison yesterday, CNN reports. The 72-year-old ran a "pill mill" out of the same abortion clinic, and pleaded guilty to writing fraudulent prescriptions for customers who didn't need the narcotics.
