Should have known better....

The Questions No One Is Asking About the Kermit Gosnell Case

The title lead me to believe the HuffPo was actually going to one right for a change and lampoon this abortionist, Kermit Gosnell.  I should have known better....
"...the Gosnell trial raises several inescapable questions: How could this happen? In particular, how, in a state that has led the nation in imposing restrictions on abortion, could such atrocities go undetected? Just as puzzling is why the numerous complaints against him were ignored."
Can you tell where it's all headed? You guessed it....
"Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, when abortion policy was established, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's primary goal was to overturn Roe v. Wade and, barring that, impose as many barriers as possible to limit access to abortion. By and large, our policymakers have never viewed abortion as a medical procedure - instead placing it under the Pennsylvania Crimes Code -- and therefore have not nurtured a system of abortion care that is woman-focused, readily accessible, and responsive to their medical needs. The Commonwealth's focus has been on denying access, not protecting the health and safety of women who need this medical care. "
They are trying to plan blame us pro-choice-we-choose-life crowd.  They go on...
"So why did women go to his clinic? Why not choose a legitimate, reputable provider of abortion care? During a Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee hearing on proposed abortion regulation bills, Tyhisha Hudson, a woman who had obtained an abortion at Gosnell's clinic, was asked why she went to him. She testified that women in her neighborhood knew that Gosnell was the man you saw for the cheapest abortion.
Another Gosnell patient, Davida Johnson, noted in an Associated Press article that she intended to go to Planned Parenthood for an abortion procedure, but was scared away by anti-abortion protesters picketing outside the clinic. An acquaintance suggested she go to Gosnell, where protesters (ironically) were not an issue." 
That's right, it the protester at the "reputable" Planned Parenthood.  It's the protesters fault!  Do you get that?  These women where driven to this mad-man because of some protesters.  No really, they double down in the very next paragraph:
"Evidence suggests that a number of factors influenced a woman's decision to seek care at Gosnell's clinic: Medicaid's refusal to provide insurance coverage for most abortions; the scarcity of abortion providers in Pennsylvania (and across the nation); the fear of violence perpetrated by protestors at clinics, and the right-wing culture that has so stigmatized abortion that many think it is still illegal 40 years after Roe v. Wade."
They continue:
"It is critically important that the women of Pennsylvania know that abortion is legal and is a safe medical procedure. As set forth in the Gosnell Grand Jury Indictment, legitimate providers, like Planned Parenthood and members of the National Abortion Federation, follow the law and standard medical procedures. "

Is there such a thing as a "safe abortion"....?  I guess that depends on your POV. 

This article is disgusting.  I like how they blame the "pro-choice-we-choose-life" crowd for this man's inexplicable actions.  

He's a monster and he is pro-abortion!  You pro-abortionist's have to own it this animal's behavior - he IS one of you!

Let's face it, abortion is legal, thanks to an activist supreme court.  We are now only arguing about at what age it should be legal for the mother to murder her child.....

Don't get me started on the lack of coverage by the typical culprits: ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, HLN,etc...  Only CBS has come close to touching this story, as Brent Bozell explains
