Another Abortion Related News Item

I’m a few days behind on this one, but Sub Spike reminded me this afternoon that this was going on in his home state:

Philadelphia Abortion Doctor Charged With 8 Counts of Murder
@ Fox News

An abortion doctor who catered to minorities, immigrants and poor women was charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Williams said during a press conference Wednesday that Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord.”

The district attorney also said patients were subjected to squalid and barbaric conditions at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society.

“There were bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses scattered throughout the building,” Williams said. “There were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.”

The clinic was shut down and Gosnell’s medical license was suspended after the raid.

This is sick. Where were the regulators?

  1. A friend of mine brought this up as evidence that we need to wholly legalize all forms of abortion so that government can regulate it. They said this guy was totally unlicensed and this sort of thing would never happen if licensed abortion doctors had enough regulation and funding to offer lower prices to disadvantaged people.

    What do you say to that? (I look forward to getting the proper method for rebuking that argument)


  2. I would ask your friend if he has any data to support his assertion. Ask him to focus especially on California and Washington State, as these states received an A+ grade from NARAL Pro-Choice America. Are abortions safer in these permissive states? Can he prove it?

    As I understand it, California does not report abortion stats to the CDC, so your friend is going to have a difficult time, I think.


  3. Also, PA does in fact have a regulatory authority that is supposed to supervise abortion clinics. But when people repeatedly complained to the authorities that Gosnell was a sicko, the PA Department of Health ignored them. How would legalizing abortion on demand correct this?
