Prosecutors could rest in Philly abortion trial

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Prosecutors in Philadelphia could wrap up five weeks of evidence Thursday in the capital murder trial of a longtime abortion provider.
    
Dr. Kermit Gosnell is charged in the deaths of a patient and seven babies allegedly killed after being born alive.
    
The defense denies there were any live births at Gosnell's Philadelphia clinic, where women from across the mid-Atlantic sought late-term abortions.
    
Gosnell's co-defendant also is calling witnesses Thursday.
    
Eileen O'Neill, who is not a licensed doctor, is charged with racketeering and theft for allegedly billing as a doctor.
    
A prosecution witness testified Thursday that she waited hours for "the doctor" to arrive, then received two pills from O'Neill for a non-surgical abortion.
    
On cross-examination, the woman said she did not know if O'Neill consulted with a doctor that day.
