37 years ago today

Today is the 37th anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion across the USA. Prior to that abortion had been legal in some states, some areas, but not in others. As far as I know it was the first ruling ever that cited all the implied rights that we have. Writing for the 7-2 Court, Justice Blackmun held that abortion is a fundamental right because it falls under the “penumbra” of the right to privacy. Which itself is one of those penumbra rights that is not specifically stated, although it can be inferred from the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 9th, and 14th Amendments. So Roe was a ruling based on a penumbra of a penumbra. I’m all for penumbra rights, even if a dark one like this turns up every few generations. We are Americans, not Germans. Everything is legal that isn’t specifically prohibited, and we have a right to everything that isn’t specifically designated as a power given to the states or to the federal government. Everything else belongs to the people.

Agree with it or not, Roe is the law of the land and is not going anywhere ever, because that would entail a new Amendment, which would itself entail a constitutional convention which would be a huge can of worms, and even with such an amendment getting out there, the likelihood of enough states ratifying it in time is slim ... and even if enough of them did, then each state would have to put the abortion question up for regular public referendum. No citizen would stand for this issue being resolved at the state legislative level, and nobody would ever get it on a ballot as a For Once And Always kind of question. It would come up every few years, forever. And I can guarantee you that it would pass in every single state almost every single time. It is because of this that I feel that the GOP should drop it as a plank in their platform. Or at least focus their point to the belief that the act is a moral wrong, and leave it at that. It is the darkest right, or the darkest wrong if you will, but it isn’t going away.

Anyway, one of the main arguments in favor of legalized abortion was to bring it out of the back alley, wire coat hanger, dark ages. And for the most part it did. Clinics and their staff were held to the same level of cleanliness and medical training as any other surgical center. But a case came up this week in Pennsylvania that shows that the left’s Political Correctness can slaughter even this Goose and it’s Golden Egg wet dream that is their one true victory. Former PA Governor Tom Ridge, Republican (the same guy who went on to lead DHS), buckled to political stone throwing and called a halt to state health department inspections of abortion clinics in his state in 1993. Fear was most likely the cause: the far left and the MSM would be all over him if his state people shut down an abortion clinic for any reason. The state doing things “for your own good” only gets a pass when Progressives do it. When Conservatives do it, it’s called oppression.

And guess what can happen when abortion clinics go uninspected for nearly two decades (and the rules that call for inspections when complaints are filed are ignored)? You could get another Joseph Mengele. And that looks to be exactly what happened in the Philadelphia area. A creature straight from Hell arose and prospered. The Law of Unintended Consequences can never be broken or bypassed.

This is a gruesome story.



Philadelphia Abortion Doctor Accused of Killing Babies With Scissors, Charged With 8 Murders
Clinic Dubbed ‘House of Horrors’ After Investigators Found Body Parts in Jars

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, and nine employees from his West Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society were arrested Wednesday. He and his staff also are charged with killing a woman who was given a lethal dose of Demerol.

Gosnell catered to minorities, immigrants and poor women, and made millions of dollars over 30 years performing illegal and late-term abortions in squalid and barbaric conditions, prosecutors said.

“There were bags, and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building,” said Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams. “There were jars lining shelves with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.”

Police officers went to investigate complaints about illegal prescription selling at the clinic last year and stumbled upon what the prosecutor called a “house of horrors.”

Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord,” Williams said.

The clinic was shut down and Gosnell’s medical license was suspended after the raid.

Some of his employees also were charged with murder, including a high-school student who performed anesthesia with potentially lethal narcotics. The grand jury report asserted the people who ran this medical practice did not include any nurses and or other doctors besides Gosnell himself.

Gosnell’s clinic was a prescription mill by day, Williams said, and by night was an abortion mill.

Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord,” Williams said.

Prosecutors described the clinic as a “house of horrors” where Gosnell kept baby body parts on the shelves, allowed a 15-year-old high school student to perform intravenous anesthesia on patients and had his licensed cosmetologist wife do late-term abortions. A family practice physician, Gosnell has no certification in gynecology or obstetrics.
...
Gosnell also had a taste for macabre jokes, once muttering that a nearly six-pound baby born alive to a 17-year-old who was seven-and-a-half months pregnant could “walk me to the bus stop,” the report said.
...
In addition to the two women who died, scores more were injured from perforated bowels, cervixes and uteruses, authorities said. Some were left sterile at the clinic, which had no trained nurses or medical staff other than Gosnell, they said.
...
“People knew near and far that if you needed a late-term abortion you could go see Dr. Gosnell,” Williams said.

The Grand Jury report is 300 pages long. Every sicko thing you can imagine went on in this place. It was the worst of the back alley world mixed with a horrifying dose of Sweeney Todd. The only things missing were organ harvesting and cannibalism ... but I haven’t read the full report yet.

But according to [District Attorney] Williams, state regulators ignored numerous complaints about Gosnell’s clinic and his office hadn’t been inspected since 1993. One doctor advised the department that numerous patients he had referred for abortions came back from Gosnell with the same venereal disease, Williams added.

Even after the death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41, on Nov. 20, 2009 of an alleged overdose of anesthetics prescribed by Gosnell, Williams said, the Department of Health did not act.

In fact, he said, Gosnell was caught by accident.



And today the story about those lack of inspections comes out. It makes a gruesome reminder to everyone everywhere to never buckle to political correctness. Do what is right, follow and enforce the laws you can’t or won’t change, and stand your ground against the jackals and the baying hounds.

While this week’s indictment involving a grisly abortion mill in Philadelphia has shocked many, the grand jury’s nearly 300-page report also contains a surprising and little-noted revelation: In the mid-1990s, the administration of Pennsylvania governor Tom Ridge, a pro-choice Republican, ended regular inspections of abortion clinics—a policy that continued until just last year.

According to the grand jury report released this week by Philadelphia prosecutors, Pennsylvania health officials deliberately chose not to enforce laws to ensure that abortion clinics provide the same level of care as other medical service providers.

The grand jury report said that one look at the place would have detected the problems, but the Pennsylvania Department of Health hadn’t inspected the place since 1993. Here’s the grand jury report, in surprisingly strong language:

The Pennsylvania Department of Health abruptly decided, for political reasons, to stop inspecting abortion clinics at all. The politics in question were not anti-abortion, but pro. With the change of administration from Governor Casey to Governor Ridge, officials concluded that inspections would be “putting a barrier up to women” seeking abortions.

“Even nail salons in Pennsylvania are monitored more closely for client safety,” the report states. “Without regular inspections, providers like Gosnell continue to operate; unlawful and dangerous third-trimester abortions go undetected; and many women, especially poor women, suffer.”

Sick. Nazi level sick, in the true concentration camp meaning of the word.

In a typical late-term abortion, the fetus is dismembered in the uterus and then removed in pieces. That is more common than the procedure opponents call “partial-birth abortion,” in which the fetus is partially extracted before being destroyed.

And when a living baby is fully delivered and then put to death it’s called murder. Unfortunately the numbers of deaths Gosnell caused this way are uncountable, since he destroyed the records and the women were under anesthesia at the time. But I bet it’s thousands. The word was out that he was the late-term guy, and women up and down the whole east coast came to see him. Want to bet those were cash transactions? You know they were.

Now ... sit back and watch him get away with it. “I wasn’t trained as an abortionist or as a maternity doctor”, he’ll cry. “I was helping out minorities and poor people!” “I misunderstood the stages of fetal development: I thought all these pregnancies were at the 23 week level!” “I thought I was following proper late-term abortion practices. Murder was never my intent!!” And after months and months of legal wrangling, he will never go to trial and all he’ll get is his license revoked - now that he’s old enough to retire and no longer needs it - and be fined for poor record keeping, which I bet is a penny ante misdemeanor. Because, after all, he was working on ghetto rats and illegal immigrants, and nobody gives a crispy fried shit about them. They and their babies are those “unwanted elements” that caused SCOTUS Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to so famously support Roe v. Wade because she didn’t want too many of them. Pity they just couldn’t be sterilized in the first place, or put into camps, eh Ruthie?
