Posted on 04/19/2011 12:01:33 PM PDT by surroundedbyblue
Civil liberties and abortion rights advocates are criticizing a bill introduced by State Rep. Matt Baker (R-Tioga) that increases rules for abortion clinics. They argue that the measure is a thinly veiled attempt at restricting abortions, saying a similar bill in Texas forced 18 of 20 clinics to close.
Proponents of the legislation and pro-life activists argue that HB 574 is necessary to close gaps in abortion regulation, brought to light in the now infamous case of abortion provider Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Bakers would require freestanding abortion clinics to follow the same standards as ambulatory surgical facilities, including increasing the size of procedure rooms and mandating the presence a full time RN during procedures.

Which does happen.
I am not at all surprised the pro-abortionists are so filthy ~ about the world's smarmiest people.
I love this thing. If you can’t make it illegal with a law, just do what the Rats do. Drown it in red tape and regulation. Make it so onerous to abort that it makes it impossible.
The ACLU is a subversive organization founded by a card-carrying Communist.
They should be disbanded, their assets seized, and their leadership jailed in shackles and irons awaiting trials for treason.
Thought you may find this of interest. Presently, in PA, abortion clinics are NOT held to the standards of ambulatory surgery clinics. As a result, the clinics here in Pgh are not staffed by licensed nurses, have outdated drugs in the facility, and little or no resuscitative equipment. Anyone who would be against this bill is a moron. But then again, are we surprised?
Translation: “We know that you know that if we have to actually ensure public safety, we’ll never be able to operate a business in this state.”
Restated for the PING.
