(AP) A lawyer for a Philadelphia abortion provider charged with killing seven babies born alive is working to show the first death occurred in the womb.


The young woman who aborted that baby when she was 17 testified Wednesday at Dr. Kermit Gosnell's murder trial.


Prosecutors believe she was nearly 30 weeks pregnant, well beyond the 24-week limit in Pennsylvania. And the limit in Delaware, where Gosnell began the three-day procedure, is 20 weeks.


A medical assistant from Gosnell's clinic in West Philadelphia has said the baby's large size and pinkish color disturbed her. She says babies were routinely cut with scissors after delivery.


But defense lawyer Jack McMahon, on cross-examination, suggested that no babies survive after the drug digoxen (di-JOKS'-en) is administered.


Records show the teen's aunt was charged $2,750 for the procedure.
