Let’s see. Kermit Gosnell has just been sentenced on three counts of first degree murder in the deaths of three unborn babies aborted alive and involuntary manslaughter of a woman who died of a drug overdose during her abortion. Another abortionist in Texas is reportedly under investigation for Gosnell-like behavior (if not worse).
There are reports of abortion clinics, such as the one in Muskegon, Michigan, which shut down after police investigating a broken rear door at the abortion clinic “reported unsanitary conditions throughout the clinic including used hypodermic needles in unsecured containers, ‘blood on the floor and walls in multiple locations’ as well as dripping from a sink trap in a patient room, and ‘uncovered buckets containing unknown fluids’ in the operating room.” And subsequent allegations that abortionist Robert Alexander, including one where fortunately, the child survived. As we subsequently explained, the number, tragically, is now up to three.
A Planned Parenthood lobbyist tells a Florida House subcommittee that it opposes legislation to require that infants born alive during an abortion be given care pending transportation to the nearest emergency medical facility for immediate treatment. And, of course, the Abortion Industry sat on its hands, even when it learned of Gosnell’s track record. And on and on and on.
So what is the pro-abortion congressional response to this litany of horror stories. Well, according to The Hill Newspaper, “Dems look to crack down on anti-abortion ‘crisis pregnancy centers.’” Yes, that is their response, which is applauded by the likes of (surprise, surprise) NARAL Pro-Choice America and the National Abortion Federation (NAF).
This, by the way, the same NARAL that managed to pretend to condemn Gosnell’s “atrocities” but never once mention the thousands of babies who were aborted over the course of 31 years and the untold number of whom were late abortions.
And the same NAF which said not word one to authorities after turning down Gosnell’s request to become a member? Why? Because his Women’s Medical Society was “beyond redemption.”
Talk about misplaced priorities….
