Teen testifies in abortion doctor trial

PHILADELPHIA (AP)- A trial witness who worked at a Philadelphia abortion clinic at age 15 says she saw at least one baby's chest move after the procedure.

Ashley Baldwin is testifying Thursday at the capital murder trial of abortion provider Kermit Gosnell.

The 72-year-old doctor is charged with killing seven newborns and a woman patient who died after an abortion.

Baldwin says she learned to do intravenous injections as a high school student and assisted with abortions.

Her mother, Tina, also worked at the inner-city clinic. She has pleaded guilty to corruption of a minor for letting Ashley work at what prosecutors call a corrupt organization.

Seven other employees have also pleaded guilty, some to third-degree murder. Another is on trial with Gosnell.

Gosnell's lawyer insists that no babies were born alive.
