On January 19, 2011 Philadelphia released a report detailing brutal, murderous abortion activities of the Women’s Medical Society overlooked by the Philadelphia Dept of Health and Pennsylvania Dept of Health for decades.
You can read the report for yourself, HERE. WARNING: Within the report are several graphic images of deceased babies.
As I have mentioned in the past posts, whatever your stance on abortion, we can agree that this is yet another example of the climate of abuse fostered by unfettered abortion practice. Previously, I detailed the undercover videos from Planned Parenthood which clearly documented the standard of care in these facilities is to protect child rapists and misinform the young women seeking help.
Reading this report, the question that keep percolating was how could this have happened with so much government oversight. The report itself answered that question in black and white:
“Bureaucratic inertia is not exactly news. We understand that. But we think this was something more. We think the reason no one acted is because the women in question were poor and of color, because the victims were infants without identities, and because the subject was the political football of abortion.”
I read the above passage and my breath was knocked out of me. What more can I add to illustrate this point.
Right on cue, Monica Yant Kinney serves up an article that inadvertently reinforces the point that government mandated health care is not the best answer to our healthcare needs. Although, I believe she was trying to link Republicans efforts to repeal Obamacare with the ending medical clinics described in her article; she does mention a rather crucial difference:
“Cranks, be silent: Not a penny comes from the government”.
Indeed with the Philadelphia Grand Jury report we find government agencies were facilitating this tragedy. Do we need more of this type of oversight with our healthcare needs? Let me know your thoughts on this issue.
Prominent abortion advocates are attempting to define the 30 felony counts of abortion as simply having nothing to do with abortion.. I agree with Ace on this one, Jill is simply making crap up.
PA Watercooler has a great roundup of perspectives on this atrocity.
