You can get in trouble for using the term “pro-abortion.” But in the gruesome story from Philadelphia, is there any other word?
But the grand jury found that Pennsylvania authorities knew what was happening at Gosnell’s abortion mill, yet deliberately looked the other way. In 1993, with the accession of a prochoice governor, the Pennsylvania Department of Health stopped inspecting abortion clinics. “Officials concluded that inspections would be ‘putting a barrier up to women’ seeking abortions,’’ the report says, and decided “to leave clinics to do as they pleased.’’
So great is the concern around “access” that standards get tossed aside. The tossing aside of standards happened recently in Quebec, too. Rebecca and I wrote about that, here.
Back to Philadelphia, though. When the goal is unethical (killing babies) is it any wonder that some doctors “cross the line”? From day one of choosing to work in a clinic, they already did.
