A pro-life group in Delaware is taking one of the former abortion facilities where notorious abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell worked and is turning it into a food pantry and place for housing assistance.

Gosnell operated his “House of Horrors” abortion clinic in Philadelphia, where he killed babies in “live-birth abortions” in part by “snipping” their spinal cards. But Gosnell also worked at two Delaware abortion clinics, including the one in Wilmington called Atlantic Women’s Medical Services.

Now, Lutheran Community Services has bought the former abortion facility on Baynard Boulevard and officials tell a local news outlet they have plans for something better for the community.

“It has a bit of history. Kermit Gosnell was one of the doctors practicing there,” said spokeswoman Cher Frampton.

Gosnell was convicted of killing babies born alive at the clinic. Frampton says the building is getting a total makeover.


“We’re taking this negative and turning it into a positive for the community there. We’ll be able to provide emergency food, housing assistance, clothing,” she said.

Frampton says they plan to bless the building. A clean-up day is set for March 28. They hope to move in this fall.
