This is why back alley abortions are a bad thing. If the right wing zealots get there way guys like this will be the norm, not the exception.

MasterThief: kore: Was this guy running a legit practice? You would think that a hospital receiving his mutilated patients would have called the police? If it is a legit practice, why wasn't something done about it? Are there regulations to cover this sort of thing? If not, why not?

Again, from the report, p. 148:

"But at least the department had been doing something up to that point, however ineffectual. After 1993, even that pro forma effort came to an end. Not because of administrative ennui, although there had been plenty. Instead, the Pennsylvania Department of Health abruptly decided, for political reasons, to stop inspecting abortion clinics at all. The politics in question were not anti-abortion, but pro. With the change of administration from Governor [Robert] Casey to Governor [Tom] Ridge [ironically, a Republican], officials concluded that inspections would be "putting a barrier up to women" seeking abortions. Better to leave clinics to do as they pleased, even though, as Gosnell proved, that meant both women and babies would pay."

Something, something, cunning plan, something, something, something.

But mention some oversight and regulation and Planned Parenthood cries havoc.

PreMortem: Perhaps the press isn't pathologically obsessed with abortion the way religious zealots are.

This trial is about murder, not abortion. Murders happen quite often I hear. Not news.

Unless the murders are of children, but then only kids in classrooms. Nobody cares about kids in doctors offices. Those ones can be murdered all day long.

Thanks for clearing that up for us.

The government Progressives worship ...

1. Legalize killing infants in the womb as a "woman's right"
2. The Second Amendment is too dangerous for you to be trusted with
3. Gosnell? Who?

There's coverage here in Philly. A metric shiat ton.

And I'll let you in on a little secret: us liberals want to see this bastard hang as well. We not only want a woman to have the right to choose, we want her to be safe in the choice she makes. (That also means that when she makes the choice the keep the child, we want her decision supported with medical care if she needs it!)

What Gosnell was doing in West Philly was horrible. Period. But, as Thoguh: pointed out, that is what would become the norm if a woman's right to choose is eliminated.

When the murder is of crying babies that could self support upon exit but then have their spines cut and it's offered by the name abortion.... The line is blurred.
