PA abortion clinic worker: I saw 10 babies breathe

Philadelphia prosecutors have rested after five weeks of evidence against an abortion provider charged with killing a patient and seven babies.

The move comes after a whistleblower said she saw more than 10 babies breathe before they were killed at Dr. Kermit Gosnell's clinic.

Witness Kareema Cross also said she saw three babies move limbs and a fourth make a sound.

But in defense questioning, she said she saw babies move after their necks had been cut. Prosecutors say Gosnell and his staff killed babies that way after they were born alive.

The defense argues that any movement seen was a post-mortem reflex.

Gosnell's lawyer will ask the judge Monday to dismiss the eight murder counts for lack of evidence.
