Skip to comments.Pa. Workers Fired in Clinic Inquiry (11 govt. workers gone in abortion investigation)
Posted on 02/15/2011 3:19:06 PM PST by Second Amendment First
Gov. Tom Corbett of Pennsylvania said Tuesday that several state workers had been fired and the states abortion clinics would be subjected to stricter oversight as a result of an investigation into a Philadelphia clinic where, according to the district attorney, a woman and seven newborn babies were killed in deplorable conditions.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, who ran the clinic, the Womens Medical Society, was indicted by a grand jury last month on eight counts of murder. The grand jury report found that babies were born alive in the clinic but were killed when their spinal cords cut with scissors by clinic staff members. At least two women died during abortion procedures.
This doesnt even rise to the level of government run amok, Governor Corbett said in a statement. It was government not running at all. To call this unacceptable doesnt say enough. Its despicable.
Governor Corbett ordered the states abortion clinics to be inspected at least once a year and said clinics that fail to meet basic state health standards would be closed, at least temporarily.
Pennsylvania abortion clinics will also have unannounced inspections, including during evenings and weekends. The results will be posted online.

Sounds like the Slimes really didn’t want to report on this.
This is blasphemy to the left, how dare you want to hold their shrines to the standards of medical clinics!
Go Tom! Would be even better if we could outlaw abortions altogether. But this is ok too.
Lets all hope the state can improve the condition of the murder site. These are supposed to be professional kills.
What a paradoxical regulatory job?! Do a better job killing babies? Make sure they hire SEIU janitors to keep the place clean?
Abortions are demonic sacrifices.
Actually, abortion is the untouchable sacrament of the left.
A $25 per fetus tax, with a reduced rate for poor and minorities would do the trick. Kinda like Baggage fees when you fly, only in reverse.
As earlier reports have noted, it was Republican Governor Tom Ridge, a pro-abort, who ordered that inspections of abortion clinics should cease. And his Democrat successors followed the same policy. And this is pretty common in other states, as well.
I’m glad to hear that people were fired. Also, that clinics will now face yearly inspections.
They should also face occasional unscheduled surprise inspections. But I suppose that’s too much to hope for.
Did they get severance? New jobs waitin’?
This is going to cost the PA abortion clinic’s big. First off I’ve read the reuse things they shouldn’t, throw away medical instruments. Then there is always a lot of blood when there is an abortion. Soooooo, lot’s more clean up.
Government does a fine job overseeing the slaughter of chickens. They should at a minimum include abortion clinics in the job description of slaughter house inspectors.
Good suggestion, did you say $25 hundred per fetus tax?
They will fight this.
They refuse to obey laws on parental notification and statutory rape reporting, they will fight this too.
Don’t live anywhere near this state so don’t understand why are they even allowed to be open.
Just what were they doing?
For the stubborn at heart, just make the fetus tax $25 if aborted and $2,500 if carried full term under Obammacare.
If you can't come up with the $2,500, they'll place you and your fetus into the $25 plan.
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry! I guess the idea that we pay for people to engage in irresponsible sex and then fund the activity, makes it appealling to tax it.
Hey wait a minute! I would then be paying taxes that would go toward funding abortion, then I would be taxing the abortion customers, and therefore paying taxes on the taxes. That means I would be taxing myself? Hey this could catch on!
Evil always fights and never goes down easy. The only way to defeat it is to shine light on it.
Doesn't he know that these clinics prevent serious complications, and even the deaths of women, from filthy back room abortions, performed by unqualified butchers, using untrained assistants and unsterile instruments?
OH! It was a “licensed clinic”, but still filthy; the staff was still untrained, as well as mostly unlicensed...some even still in high school, but administering drugs; the instruments were still often unsterile, and even dirty; and the “doctor”, though licensed, was still unqualified...and often not even present for the procedure.
Anyone want to explain the difference between a legal abortion, and a ‘back alley abortion using a bent coat-hanger’, in practical terms?
Spot on! There is no difference whatsoever between the modern day abortuary and the so called “back alley” variety. I believe the average tattoo parlour is more regulated than are abortion clinics.
This has been a long time coming. The light is now shining...
Watch the union get their jobs back in 3, 2, 1 ...
