Gosnell, 72, was cleared in the death of a fourth baby, who prosecutors say let out a soft whimper before he snipped its neck.
Gosnell also was accused in the death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41, who died of an anesthetic overdose during a second-trimester abortion at his West Philadelphia clinic. In that case, the jury found him guilty of involuntary manslaughter.
Gosnell was also found guilty of 21 counts of abortion of the unborn, 24 weeks or older. In Pennsylvania, abortions past 24 weeks are illegal unless the health of the mother is at stake.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, who ran the now-shuttered Women's Medical Society Clinic, could face the death penalty after the Common Pleas Court jury convicted him of severing babies' spines.
The verdict was reached just hours after the seven-woman, five-man jury, which has been deliberating for 10 days, sent out a handwritten note on Monday to say it was hung on two counts.
The Jury comes back next Tuesday to decide whether or not Gosnell should get the death penalty.
Jack McMahon, Gosnell's attorney, described the doctor as "disappointed" and "upset" over the verdict but said the defense team respected the jury's ruling.
"They obviously took their job seriously," McMahon said of the jury. "The verdict should be respected based on their effort."
