Keystone State still slacking in safety

emergency lights ambulanceConcern still continues for women's safety at Pennsylvania abortion clinics, especially in light of the pandemic.

Maria Gallagher of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation points out that the clinics in The Keystone State do not have a clean track record.

"We fear that safety concerns are rising as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and that's because a check of the Department of Health website shows that no abortion facility's inspection reports have been posted since the virus swept through Pennsylvania."

But considering the clinics in the state have not passed their inspections in the past, COVID just adds to the situation.

"The last report that's posted is from February 12th, and it shows the Philadelphia Women's Center failing its inspection," Gallagher notes. "At the time, health officials discovered that the troubled abortion center had not obtained parental consent for some chemical abortions for minor girls."

Whether that has continued is not known, but Gallagher contends it should not be happening at all. She emphasizes that Kermit Gosnell, who operated a filthy clinic on Philadelphia's west side, had not been inspected for about 18 years. He is now serving life in prison for killing babies who were born alive during his failed abortions.

When that situation was exposed, the state made changes and was to inspect clinics on a regular basis, but that apparently has not been happening since the pandemic began.
