(AP) Philadelphia jurors are debating murder charges against an abortion provider as they start their third full day of deliberations in his trial.


The jury asked for help Friday distinguishing among the four babies Dr. Kermit Gosnell is accused of killing. Staff members at Gosnell's clinic have testified that they saw each one move, breathe or whine outside the mother's body before they were allegedly killed.


The jury has also asked for a list of drugs found during a 2010 clinic raid. Prosecutors say the abortion drug Digoxin (di-JOCKS'-uhn) was not found although Gosnell says he used it to stop the babies' hearts in utero during late-term abortions.


The jury has been weighing more than 250 counts against Gosnell and a codefendant since Tuesday.
