Update: Judge Drops 3 Murder Charges

In a shocking twist, the judge drops three charges of murder against Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortion doctor, reported the Associated Press. The judge cited that there was not enough evidence to prove that the babies that died could have survived after they were delivered. Gosnell still faces 4 counts of murder and if found guilty he could face the death penalty.
