Abortion clinic failures highlight governor's bias

PA Gov. Tom Wolf with PP's Cecil RichardsThe Pennsylvania governor's undiscerning loyalty to Planned Parenthood is being called into question after recent incidents at an abortion clinic he has associated himself with.

Governor Tom Wolf (left) was a volunteer escort at a Pennsylvania Planned Parenthood clinic in his younger years, and in April he and Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards appeared at a Planned Parenthood facility in Warminster, Pennsylvania, touting its contribution to health care for women. Maria Gallagher of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation points out what both ignored.

"As it turned out, only a few days before [Gov. Wolf's endorsement], that clinic had been cited for safety violations," Gallagher says. "It did not have the proper equipment for resuscitating patients during an abortion."

And Gallagher says Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation has learned the abortion clinic has failed inspection again.

"During the latest inspection, there was an incident in which a woman's uterus was actually compromised during an abortion," she tells OneNewsNow. "This Planned Parenthood facility did not report that serious incident to the state, and under state law you have to report those incidents."

So the clinic doesn't have equipment to resuscitate a woman in an emergency abortion situation, and later neglected to report a dangerous health issue for a patient.

"It has failed inspection time and time again, and the state really needs to crack down on this facility because it obviously is not providing the best care for women," Gallagher says.

Gallagher also raises the question of why Governor Wolf supports an abortion facility that continues to fail inspections.
