    How did liberals bring us to this? You realize that this guy broke the law right? Where did liberals say this was acceptable?

    Well, you never said what he did was unacceptable, just illegal.

I don't understand how this man was able to do this for so long without anyone ever saying anything.

    My take on this is that it's no so much the legality of abortion that is to blame, but more how far along in the pregnancy abortion is considered legal. With the exception of the UK and Finland, no other Western country other than the US allows elective abortions after the first trimester. This is also where my pro-choice stance ends quite abruptly. I will never support elective abortion past week 12 of pregnancy. I've always been very surprised that the US allows it until week 24 given the continuous, divisive debate on this issue for decades now.
    This is just one of many issue that divide an already deeply divided nation. I consider this as just another one of the joys of multi-culturalism.

    A complete ban on late-term abortions is not a good idea at all. Sometimes, such a procedure is unfortunately necessary. I would agree that the mental health of the mother should never be an excuse tho. But there are other reasons, like certain types of fetal deformity, when a late-term abortion is justifiable.

    Also, there is no way that the operation this guy was running would EVER be legal anywhere in the civilized world. Take a look at this article. It describes in detail the atrocious conditions in that "clinic" and the number of people who were complicit in the whole thing:

    Appalling that something like this was allowed to go on in a country like the US. I simply have no words.

    It's unacceptable. I figured it went without saying.

    ........an unintended consequence of the cheaping of human life? Fact is we have somewhere near 50 million dead as a result of roe v wade. The only difference between all of those abortions and these abortions is just a matter of a few weeks. Once you get past all that "taking a human life bit" lousy oversite and throw in economics for boot, just how can you avoid this sort of thing?

    I kept asking what this doc did that was so different from other abortion doctors. Your answers were basically only that he broke the law. So I ask, other than breaking the law what has this doc done that's so much more wrong than other abortion doctors?
