No one from DOH was able to tell us who decided to exclude abortion clinics
from meaningful oversight that would protect patient safety, or why such a decision was
made. Nor did the jurors get a satisfactory answer as to why abortion clinics are under
DOH’s Division of Home Health (which oversees agencies that provide care in people’s
houses), rather than the more appropriate Division of Acute and Ambulatory Care. Or
why, on DOH’s website, even on the page that lists the types of facilities overseen by the
Division of Home Health, abortion clinics are not even mentioned.The abhorrent conditions and practices inside Gosnell’s clinic are directly
attributable to the Pennsylvania Health Department’s refusal to treat abortion clinics as
ambulatory surgical facilities.
But even if DOH’s position with respect to whether abortion clinics are ASFs
were reasonable – which it is not – that interpretation would not excuse the department’s
abdication of its duty to afford women who go to these clinics the same types of
safeguards that plastic surgery patients receive. This is because – whether a facility is
called an ambulatory surgical facility, a hospital, or a freestanding abortion clinic – the
legislature with the Abortion Control Act has charged DOH with the duty to write and
enforce regulations that protect the health and safety of women undergoing abortion
proceduresThe Grand Jury asked several DOH employees, attorneys as well as those charged
with overseeing abortion facilities, why the department does not treat abortion clinics as
ASFs when the language of the Health Care Facilities Acts is so clear. Their
unsatisfactory answers left us bewildered.The Department of Health’s decades-long neglect of its duty to ensure the health
and safety of women undergoing medical procedures in abortion clinics is in stark
contrast to its policies and practices with respect to procedures performed in other types
of health care facilitiesyeah ...On November 24, 2009, Gosnell sent a fax to the department, followed by a letter
addressed to Staloski, notifying DOH that Karnamaya Mongar had died following an
abortion at his clinic. (Gosnell’s letter inaccurately stated that the second day of her
procedure was November 18.) Darlene Augustine, a registered nurse and health quality
administrator in the department’s Division of Home Health, received the fax.
Augustine, who supervises surveyors who respond to and investigate complaints
at health care facilities, testified that she immediately notified her boss, Cynthia Boyne.
(Boyne had become director of DOH’s Division of Home Health in 2007, when Staloski
was promoted to head the Bureau of Community Licensure and Certification.) Augustine
said that she told Boyne on November 25 that DOH should immediately go out to the
clinic and initiate an investigation. Augustine acknowledged that she generally had the
authority to send surveyors out to investigate – and she often did so within an hour of
receiving a notice of a serious event such as a death. She testified, however, that she felt
she needed Director Boyne’s approval because Gosnell’s notice involved an abortion
Boyne did not give her approval. Instead, she went to the bureau director,
Staloski, to discuss the matter. Augustine explained that abortion clinics were treated
differently from other medical facilities because Staloski had for years overseen the
department’s handling of complaints and inspections – or lack of inspections – relating to
When 'pro choice' adherents won't face the fact that babies, and at least one mother, have been murdered, that venereal diseases have been spread thorough filthy conditions, that babies feet were being kept in jars as trophies, etc., but instead argue about 'pro choice' and fear that their right to abortion on demand be limited if regulations are followed, then something is amiss in their entire argument. It seems they have lost the ability to see clearly between right and wrong, moral and immoral, and blindly cling to their position, no matter what the possible consequences.
We see the consequences but they can' t seem to deal with them. But wouldn't it eventual come to this, once the value of human life is minimized?

Abortion worker: 'They will not resuscitate' baby born alive [VIDEO] | The Daily CallerThe pro-life organization Live Action released its third secretly recorded video Thursday, revealing a counselor at a Phoenix, Ariz. late-term abortion clinic explaining that if a baby is born alive after a failed abortion, the clinic would not assist it, leaving it to die.
In the video, a Live Action undercover investigator, who is 23.5 weeks pregnant, presses a clinic worker identified as Linda at the Family Planning Associates Medical Group about whether doctors would assist the fetus if it is born alive.
“Sometimes they are [alive], yeah,” Linda says in the video. “But it doesn’t, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will come out whole. ‘Cause they use suction, plus they use instruments so sometimes the fetuses don’t come out, you know, it’s not complete.”
“They will not resuscitate,” Linda responds when the investigator asks for assurance that she will not have to take the baby home.
Linda adds that the chance of the fetus being delivered with a heartbeat is “kind of slim.”
The undercover investigator also spoke with a doctor at the facility, Laura Mercer, who explains how the procedure works.
“We do the injection, which is a quick poke through your belly, um, and that stops the fetal heart, so that makes it so, if you were to deliver, there shouldn’t be movement. There shouldn’t be any of those things. … Yes. we induce a demise, an intrauterine demise … Um, death.”
live action's latest statement: "this video is just the latest evidence of a disturbing and horrifying trend occurring inside America’s abortion industry, the horrors of the gosnell trial are a widespread problem in this industry"
"dismembering and destroying innocent children, leaving born babies to die, injecting poison into the chest of a tiny child so that he slowly dies in his own mother’s womb — this is all standard operating procedure in the abortion industry”
