A building in Wilmington, Del., that once housed a clinic where now-infamous abortion practitioner Dr. Kermit Gosnell practiced is being transformed into a food pantry, according to a representative for a local charity group.

Lutheran Community Services, a nonprofit serving families in need, announced in a radio interview this week that the organization has purchased the now-shuttered Atlantic Women's Medical Services building.
"It has a bit of history. Kermit Gosnell was one of the doctors practicing there," Lutheran Community Services spokeswoman Cher Frampton told WDEL in a recent interview.
While the building is linked to Gosnell, who was convicted of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies last year, Frampton said that there are plans to turn it into a center that serves poor families in need.
"We're taking this negative and turning it into a positive for the community there," she said. "We'll be able to provide emergency food, housing assistance, clothing."
The Wilmington location is one of two clinics in Delaware where Gosnell worked in addition to running his Women's Medical Society office in Philadelphia, LifeNews.com reported.
Lutheran Community Services, which plans to bless the building before moving in, will begin cleaning it out on March 28, with hopes of launching the center sometime in the fall.

As TheBlaze reported earlier this week, though press coverage surrounding Gosnell's atrocities has waned, his crimes will soon be revisited in “3801 Lancaster: Part II,” a new documentary aimed at shedding light on what unfolded at his grimy Philadelphia clinic.
