Kermit Gosnell says he is "spiritually innocent" and was doing his duty as "a soldier in a war against poverty."
Months ago, the Philadelphia abortion doctor was convicted on three counts of murder for snipping the spinal cords of babies born alive. "In an ideal world, we'd have no need for abortion," Gosnell told "Philadelphia" magazine in a jailhouse interview. "But bringing a child into the world when it cannot be provided for, that there are no sufficient systems to support, is a greater sin. I considered myself to be in a war against poverty, and I feel comfortable with the things I did and the decisions I made."
