The abortionist shield law passes Pennsylvania House

Published on

A bill currently under consideration in the Pennsylvania legislature has the potential to create a situation in which individuals with similar characteristics to those of Kermit Gosnell could operate with impunity in the state.

On Wednesday, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted 117 to 86 in favor of House Bill 1786, which would permit abortionists who reside in the state and violate the law in other jurisdictions to evade arrest and prosecution.

The potential for the abortionist shield law to attract individuals with questionable moral standards to the Keystone State is a significant concern.

Gosnell was a West Philadelphia abortionist who was initially accused of killing hundreds of newborn babies and causing the deaths of female patients in his abortion facility, which was referred to as the “House of Horrors.” He was ultimately convicted of murdering three newborn babies and of committing involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of female immigrant patient Karnamaya Mongar. He was not prosecuted on additional charges due to the destruction of a significant number of records.

The bill represents the inaugural legislative initiative of the pro-abortion Democratic caucus in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, which is expected to launch a series of pro-abortion legislative measures in the near future.

The abortion industry has been attempting to transform Pennsylvania into an abortion hub. By providing unscrupulous abortionists with a means of avoiding legal consequences, pro-abortion lawmakers are attempting to create the legal framework to attract more abortionists to Pennsylvania.

It is crucial to acknowledge that the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation does not endorse the prosecution of women who seek abortions. This is because they recognize that these women are also victims of the abortion industry. However, those who perform abortions in a manner that causes harm to women should be held to account for their reckless actions. House Bill 1786 contravenes this fundamental principle.

HB 1786 is now under consideration by the PA Senate.
