Abortion Clinic Regulation Hearings Held in Harrisburg. No More Houses of Horror!
Catholic Online ^ | 2/10/11 | Deacon Keith Fournier

... it is men like him who have borne the heat of the day. He is, to borrow the nickname of heavyweight boxer Evander Holyfield, the "real deal." He was unafraid to suffer for our youngest neighbors to the point of enduring unjust imprisonment. I hired him in the early nineties while he was under "house arrest" with an ankle bracelet and I was the Executive Director of the ACLJ...

He told me of this State senate hearing called in response to the case of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the West Philadelphia abortionist criminally charged for the commission of eight murders. I wrote about the story when it hit the national news. Seven children were executed after birth. This horrid man utilized a procedure he referred to as "snipping," severing their spinal cord with surgical scissors which he inserted into the back of their necks. ...

...Father Paul Schenck accompanied the leader of the Pennsylvania Catholic conference to this hearing on Tuesday. ....Williams told the Senate committee Tuesday that the grand jury felt that the agencies involved seemed "more interested in protecting the interest of the departments than the interests of women and young girls." He repeated what I heard him say in numerous interviews with the National Press after the disclosure of this crime; there is "more oversight of women's hair salons and nail salons."...The case out of West Philadelphia revealed only the tip of a proverbial iceberg; squalid, unregulated abortion mills where women are subjected to substandard "services" and children are killed, even after they are born. This call for regulating these houses of horror is being heard in Harrisburg

The National Pro-Life Center is joining with the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference in calling for legislation that will make abortion practitioners accountable:"The horrible work of the abortion trade has been largely left unregulated because of a perverse belief that abortion is a sacrosanct Constitutional 'right' that cannot be abridged." (Fr. Paul Schenck)...Fr. Schenck told me, "The horrible work of the abortion trade has been largely left unregulated because of a perverse and irrational belief that abortion is a sacrosanct Constitutional 'right' that cannot be abridged under any circumstances. As a result, women and children have been abused and killed. We urge every effort to reign in rogue abortionists and hold them accountable for their deeds." ...

Would they “regulate” concentration camps?

Just ban abortion now. Protect the life of every innocent person, just as every officer of government involved in this swore to do.

It occurs to me that one reason the operations of infanticide (abortion) clinics are left without any oversight is those charged with that task would actually have to go in and see the details of the horror they are protecting and supporting. I have a feeling many of them don’t want to do that.

Holding abortion clinics to the sanitary standards of any other medical (or veterinary, or hairstyling, or manicurist) facility would raise the price, thus reducing the number of dead babies. The Death Eaters don’t want that. They want more killing and more profits.

Urf... I can hardly put it into words. These beasts would have to be watched every minute of every day to prevent the stuff they’re talking about. Unless someone blows a whistle, how does Harrisburg expect to know whether or not they’re killing born alive infants?

I'm considering trying to intern at ACLJ (I'm a second-year law student). Wherever I am, I will do everything I can to stop this. It's time to go back to the constitution and overturn/repeal/overrule the heinous unconstitutional SCOTUS decisions and clarify that if SCOTUS make an unconstitutional decision, others are not bound to follow it.

The states should nullify abortion.
