Who Were the Victims?

The victims mostly comprised of low-income African-American, Latina and Southeast Asian immigrant women who live in the Mantua neighborhood where the clinic resides, writes Colorlines. These women came to the Women's Medical Society because Gosnell offered abortion services for a considerably lower price than other clinics in the area, reported The Atlantic.
