    There was a legal fetal age limit of 24 weeks gestation in Pennsylvania with the exception of saving the life of the pregnant woman.

    Both a licence to practice medicine and a bushiness licence are subject to numerous inspections. Everything from the fire department making it's twice-annual inspection of extinguishers and alarms to the Pennsylvania's Medical Licencing and Review Board performing routine inspections of both your records, personal, and a physical inspection of your actual facility, during your licence renewal.

    Add to this the fact that numerous complaints were made to the Medical Review Board, not the least of which was the death of a patient, which prompted further investigations. Citations were given, fines issued, until ultimately a crime was uncovered. Not just a mere violation of code, but an actual crime, and then evidence of cover-up.

    You ask how a law is enforced. The government makes regular inspections, and regular people also pick up the phone and call the authorities.

    Actually Gosnell got nabbed for his drug dealing. left to his own vices on the abortion issue, the state of PA and many physicians seemed more than willing to tolerate Gosnell's practice

    I just don't understand it. Even from the angle of patient safety, Gosnell's practice and facility were absolutely horrendous.

    Yes. The clinic was beyond filthy, and the equipment lacking too. And yet there was no inspection for 17 years, and it took a narcotics investigation to at least partly bring him to justice.

    That's what resonates with me...this wasn't an otherwise upstanding medical practice which just happened to slip up a few times. This facility was disgusting. On top of that, the authorities charged with overseeing health and safety let numerous substantial violations go.

    This is a complete collapse of the system.

    You're right; there's no excuse for this. The media blacked out the Gosnell trial for weeks, but once Kristen Powers denounced this in USA Today, various outlets began covering the trial. And info about other sordid clinics, for example, the one in D.C., came out.

    Here's hoping that every community's county health department is going to exercise due diligence after this disgraceful, inexcusable failure.

    I wouldn't even take my dog to a vet office in that condition.

    Interesting how he gave up his right to appeal so he wouldn't get the death penalty. He chose life. Huh.
