Unlicensed doctor pleads in Philly abortion case
Unlicensed doctor pleads guilty to 3rd-degree murder in Philly abortion clinic case
By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' An unlicensed doctor pleaded guilty to third-degree murder in the deaths of two babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors at a filthy Philadelphia abortion clinic.

Steven Massof, of Pittsburgh, pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree murder, murder conspiracy and other charges on Thursday.

The 49-year-old Massof is the fourth of 10 defendants to plead guilty in the case.

Seventy-year-old Dr. Kermit Gosnell is charged with killing seven babies and a woman who died after a botched abortion at the clinic he owned.

Massof's two murder counts could bring a life term, but he'll likely get a reduced sentence for his plea and potential cooperation.

He remains in custody. He graduated from a foreign medical school, but was not licensed to practice medicine.
