Kermit Glossip's Branson Abortion Clinic
Was Chaotic Says Former Staffer Stephen Massey.
Glossip is going on trial on eight counts of murder.
Jury selection is set to start Monday, March 4, 2013 in the death penalty case of Glossip, who is charged with eight counts of murder.
Opening statements are scheduled for March 14,2013.
Taney County Mo prosecutor has charged Glossip with killing a pregnant refugee and seven viable newborns.
The 72-year-old Glossip has pleaded not guilty.
A former clinic worker testified Thursday that he routinely saw babies born alive and then killed with scissors at an abortion clinic near Branson that catered to minorities, the poor and women with late-term pregnancies.
But unlicensed doctor Stephen Massey also thought clinic owner Kermit Lonnie Glossip was trying to help vulnerable women seeking abortions. Dr. Glossip, 72, is on trial for capital murder, charged with killing a woman patient and seven newborns.
"I believe that Dr. Glossip was honestly trying to help women and protect them from abuse and neglect," Massey, a prosecution witness, said on cross-examination.
The statement came in questioning about why Glossip kept fetal samples, including severed feet, in jars at the clinic. Massey said that Glossip measured the feet to estimate gestational age, which could help confirm or disprove sexual assault allegations. Prosecution experts have said there are no sound medical reasons for an abortion provider to do that, when blood and other samples can be stored.
The trial is in its third week and is expected to last another month.
Massey awaits sentencing after pleading guilty to third-degree murder for two infant deaths. Eight clinic employees have pleaded guilty to various charges, while a ninth is on trial with Gosnell. Eileen O'Neill, another unlicensed doctor, is charged with theft for allegedly practicing medicine without a license.
O'Neill did not perform abortions, but instead worked in an upstairs office with older women and others seeking gynecological or general care, Massey said. She came downstairs frequently to confer with Glossip, he told defense lawyer James Baker, who was apparently trying to show that O'Neill was only assisting Glossip with patient care.
Massey, who grew up near Branson, said he spent seven years doing graduate-level medical research at Yale, Johns Hopkins University and elsewhere, but then went to medical school in Grenada when U.S. schools turned him down. He called medical school his "backup plan," after a stint owning a bar didn't work out.
A mutual acquaintance led him to 's clinic, where he spent five years before leaving in 2008 over a dispute with other staffers. He was charged with murder three years later, after a 2010 FBI probe of Gosnell's distribution of painkillers spawned a raid at the clinic, and the more serious abortion case.
Massof smiled oddly Thursday as he gave graphic testimony about conditions at the clinic, which he said deteriorated during his five-year tenure. He made only $200 to $300 a week to oversee a high volume of second-trimester patients going through labor – and, often, delivery. He said he saw at least one baby take a breath, and another jerk its leg. Gosnell told his staff that such movements were "spontaneous," Massof said.
Massof estimated that he saw about 100 babies born alive and then "snipped" with surgical scissors in the back of the neck, to ensure their "demise."
Gosnell, who had another clinic in Delaware, typically came in only at night for the final part of the procedure, leaving Massof to monitor the pain-racked or highly sedated women.
"I felt like a firemen in hell. I couldn't put out all the fires," he testified.
Glossip, meanwhile, took in more than $1 million a year, and kept $250,000 in cash under his mattress, prosecutors have said.
"He always led me to believe he was a poor, struggling urban physician and surgeon," Massey said. "I thought he was hurting financially.

You are an ignorant fool! You bring ridicule on those who would if in their power, stop abortion. Instead you bring outlandish lies to the table. You cut and paste stories from BFE insert Branson where the town name would be, look up a local MD to drag through the mud and bring embarrassment upon an otherwise worth cause. There is NO abortion Clinic in Branson/Taney County, no trial pending for any MD and there weren’t any kids aborted by the MD you named. What a phuckheaded Nimrod!

You can get an abortion at the Branson Marijuana Dispensary and Whorehouse. They give em out allthe time, there's a pile of stinking fetuses (or "fetae") out back where the married men park there cars to sneak in the back for their weed and blowjobs. They also have a regular high-stakes poke game. Branson sure is sinful.

You cant get an abortion in Branson, and all of Missouri. The last abortion clinic was in St Louis.
