People need to be reminded...this is what abortion IS....this is what abortion advocates support.
They just dont the rest of the people to see it.
Agreed, that is what abortion is and it was a house of horrors.
Thanks for the links.

Instead of “illegal clinic’s practices” it should be “clinic’s illegal practices.”
Most of what they did there was perfectly legal.
