In light of the horrors perpetrated by Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, you’d think most people would be in favor of attempting to establish some minimum health requirements for abortion clinics throughout the state.
A bill introduced in Pennsylvania mandates that freestanding abortion clinics “follow the same standards as ambulatory surgical facilities, including increasing the size of procedure rooms and mandating the presence a full time RN during procedures,” according to PoliticsPA.
You’d think that the people at Planned Parenthood would put women’s health first, right? Ha! Planned Parenthood and the ACLU are fighting this legislation, preferring the good ol’ days of lawlessness that led to the horrors in Gosnell’s clinic. Here’s a rule of thumb -when Planned Parenthood and the ACLU team up, horrors ensue.
Andy Hoover, a lobbyist for the ACLU said, “It is absolutely clear that House Bill 574 is an attempt to put providers out of business. It is not about patient safety.”
Yes. Ensuring women’s safety can be a little expensive. I guess the ACLU and Planned Parenthood don’t think it worth hiring a nurse to be present during the surgery to protect women. What kind of animals are these people? Honestly.
The Republican who introduced the bill wondered
“Why do they feel that they should not have to undergo the same patient health safety standards as other facilities, this just defies logic. People go in to have anesthesia and surgical abortions and you’re saying there shouldn’t even be a nurse? It doesn’t make sense. And most reasonable thinking people whether they be pro-life or pro-choice or in the middle seem to agree with that,” said Baker.
“That just shows how out of touch, and unrealistic and uncaring, quite frankly, that they are towards the very women that they seem to be saying would be hurt by this legislation,” said Baker. “I would say that they’re hurting women physically as evident by the atrocities witnessed at the Gosnell abortion clinic.”
Check out the rest at PoliticsPA. The ACLU and Planned Parenthood even made a video about this they’re so worried.
The upshot here is one we all knew. Planned Parenthood doesn’t give a damn about the safety of women. It’s about money. And when it comes down to a choice between money and women’s safety, money wins every time. Every single time.
