Prosecutors are calling it "a house of horrors."

A former abortion clinic in west Philadelphia is the center of a murder trial.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell allegedly used the facility to kill babies that had survived illegal, late-term abortions.

It's also where a woman allegedly died of a botched pain-killer injection at the hands of a worker who wasn't even a nurse's aid.

Gosnell has pleaded not guilty to eight counts of murder.
