One year ago today at the Wisconsin protests: there's a Planned Parenthood rally...

... and Meade's efforts to talk to our Assemblyman Brett Hulsey are aborted.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell is a late-term abortionist who owns an abortion clinic in Pennsylvania. He is currently under indictment for murdering 8 babies and 1 woman in his clinic.

In 1992, Planned Parenthood v. Casey was decided, overturning abortion regulations in Pennsylvania.

The following year, health inspections of abortion clinics would end in Pennsylvania.

From the grand jury report indicting Dr. Gosnell: the Pennsylvania health department "has shown an utter disregard both for the safety of women who seek treatment at abortion clinics and for the health of fetuses after they have become viable. State health officials have also shown a disregard for the laws the department is supposed to enforce. Most appalling of all, the Department of Health’s neglect of abortion patients’ safety and of Pennsylvania laws is clearly not inadvertent: It is by design.

Yes, this is an ideology. And it's an ideology that comes straight from the top.

In Roe v. Wade, Harry Blackmun speaks of abortions that are to be "free of regulation by the state."

In Casey, the Supreme Court writes, "Our precedents have respected the private realm of family life which the state cannot enter."

After Casey, health inspectors would not step foot in Gosnell's clinic until 2010, when they would discover a house of horrors.

From the grand jury indictment:

There was blood on the floor. A stench of urine filled the air. A flea-infested cat was wandering through the facility, and there were cat feces on the stairs. Semi-conscious women scheduled for abortions were moaning in the waiting room or the recovery room, where they sat on dirty recliners covered with blood-stained blankets.

Abortion can't be dangerous or unsafe for women. It's impossible!

(In 2002) a former employee of Gosnell presented the Board of Medicine with a complaint that laid out the whole scope of his operation: the unclean, unsterile conditions; the unlicensed workers; the unsupervised sedation; the underage abortion patients; even the over-prescribing of pain pills with high resale value on the street. The department assigned an investigator, whose investigation consisted primarily of an offsite interview with Gosnell.

The investigator never inspected the facility, questioned other employees, or reviewed any records. Department attorneys chose to accept this incomplete investigation, and dismissed the complaint as unconfirmed.

We can't go into that abortion clinic. It's private!

Shortly thereafter the department received an even more disturbing report – about a woman, years before Karnamaya Mongar, who died of sepsis after Gosnell perforated her uterus. The woman was 22 years old. A civil suit against Gosnell was settled for almost a million dollars, and the insurance company forwarded the information to the department. The department attorneys dismissed this complaint too. They concluded that death was just an “inherent” risk, not something that should jeopardize a doctor’s medical license.

An abortion doctor killed a woman through sheer incompetence. "That can't happen. Pro-life propaganda!"

A doctor from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia hand-delivered a complaint, advising the department that numerous patients he had referred for abortions came back from Gosnell with the same venereal disease. The medical examiner of Delaware County informed the department that Gosnell had performed an illegal abortion on a 14-year-old girl carrying a 30-week-old baby. And the department received official notice that a woman named Karnamaya Mongar had died at Gosnell’s hands.

Yet not one of these alarm bells – not even Mrs. Mongar’s death – prompted the department to look at Gosnell or the Women’s Medical Society.

so, we have to type in two almost illegible words to post, and the post-bots roll right on through it.

Yea, abortionists have to go out of their way to avoid talking about what actually goes on in the clinics and present nice clean airy and fluffy talking points about "rights" and "privacy". All designed to ignore the dismembered dead baby in the bedpan and shift attention elsewhere.

Why do pro-abortion folk think that science based medical cleanliness standards for invasive operations are not to be enforced in abortion clinics?

Women may have the right ot privacy, but those doctors don't. Why do the pro-aborts try to shield scumbags like Dr Gosnell?

Actually, I think these spammers are using real people. Somewhere in the world, there are human beings whose whole job it is to look at those things and type them, perhaps at a rate of 50 a minute, for hours. Think of that before complaining.
