Wife of Gosnell admits to perform late-term abortions

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - The wife of an embattled abortion doctor in Philadelphia has admitted to performing illegal abortions herself.

Pearl Gosnell pleaded guilty Tuesday to performing two late-term abortions.

She's the wife of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who's charged in the deaths of seven babies and a woman.

It all happened at Gosnell's clinic in west Philadelphia, described as a "house of horrors."

Eight others are charged in the case, including several clinic workers who have already pleaded guilty.
