PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- They say they were just doing what the boss trained them to do.

But eight former employees of a run-down West Philadelphia abortion clinic now face prison time for the work they did for Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Three have pleaded guilty to third-degree murder.

The 72-year-old Gosnell is on trial in the deaths of a patient and seven babies allegedly born alive.

In testimony at the capital murder trial this past month, an unlicensed doctor and low-level aides described long, chaotic days at the clinic.

They say they performed grueling work for minimum wage. But for most, it was the best job they could find.

Defense lawyer Jack McMahon argues that no babies were born alive, and he says unforeseen complications caused the overdose death of the woman who died.
