Safe, Legal & Rare?

If you haven’t heard of the horror that is Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia abortion clinic, I urge you to take the time to read the Grand Jury Report. (WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES)
It is a little lengthy, and contains disgusting details related to Gosnell’s heinous crimes, but nonetheless it is an important read. It is the cavalier attitude the pro-abortion movement has cultivated towards life that is responsible for this travesty. People have forgotten that the unborn are alive, they have dehumanized them to the point that the people involved in this operation did not think to question what was happening. They have made abortion into a profit business, and Gosnell wanted to capitalize on it.
One of the most telling details of this story is that someone from the National Abortion Federation came to inspect the clinic. Not only did Gosnell’s clinic not meet NAF’s “standards”, the inspector said it was the worst abortion clinic she had ever seen. She admitted that she saw patients being treated with powerful drugs by unlicensed workers, witnessed violations of the mandatory 24 hour waiting period, and other self-described “dangerous” practices.
The pro-abortion movement’s mantra is “keep abortion safe, legal, and rare.” Yet when NAF saw women being put in a dangerous situation, they did not go to the authorities. They did not try to protect these poor women. They kept their mouths shut, and allowed Gosnell to continue his illegal practices.
NAF is not the only organization at blame for what happened in Philadelphia, but their actions (or lack thereof) are at least partially to blame. And it seriously undermines their claims to care about safety and about the women themselves.
