A grand jury in Pennsylvania is saying that the state failed to perform its job of oversight over abortion clinics.
The Blaze reports:
A filthy abortion mill where prosecutors say babies were delivered alive and killed with scissors would have been shut down long ago if not for extraordinary failures by state regulators, who had not inspected it since 1993, a grand jury report charges.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, a family practice physician with no certification in gynecology or obstetrics, was charged Wednesday with eight counts of murder in the deaths of seven babies and one patient. Nine employees also were charged, including four with murder.
In its report, the grand jury said failures of the Pennsylvania Department of Health and other agencies allowed Gosnell’s “house of horrors” to persist for decades, with baby body parts on the shelves and clogging the plumbing, a 15-year-old high school student performing intravenous anesthesia, and Gosnell’s wife, a cosmetologist, performing late-term procedures.
“Had state and local officials performed their duties properly, Gosnell’s clinic would have been shut down decades ago,” the grand jury wrote. “If inspectors had looked solely for violations of Pennsylvania’s abortion regulations, there would have been ample grounds to revoke the approval of Gosnell’s clinic as an abortion provider — as was demonstrated when DOH inspectors finally entered the facility in February 2010.”
Any thoughts on why so many officials turned a blind eye to this horror show of a medical clinic?
Why would anyone expect anything different? The abortion industry is one of the largest donors to Democrat politicians and organizations like Planned Parenthood receive millions and millions in taxpayer money, from federal, state and local levels.
As long as the abortion industry and the Democratic Party, which runs a large majority of cities including Philadelphia, are scratching each other’s backs why would we ever expect any real oversight?
Look at those videos put out by Live Action which shows abortion clinic workers lying and breaking the law as boldly and plainly as can be. But nothing is done.
The Democratic Party is constantly calling for MORE OVERSIGHT, MORE REGULATIONS. They say it was a lack of regulations and oversight which caused the housing collapse and the economic downturn. But when it comes to the abortion industry, it’s laissez faire. It’s the Wild West and nobody but a precious few in government are saying anything.
Here’s a sick question? Does anyone really believe that Dr. Gosnell’s clinic is that out of the ordinary? Do you really believe that murdering babies after they’re out of the womb is an anomaly? Because I don’t believe it is. But we won’t know until there’s some oversight which isn’t going to happen any time in the near future.
