So if it's left for me to determine that if you're the sort that is gracious when proven wrong, or shameless, I'd guess the latter.
Just the same, the post history of Viktyr and GEXI are available to you at your leisure. Cheers.
Much of that regulation is for patient safety. No matter where you set the bar some base criminal like this will always offer a way under it.
2) While I'm surprised that there is in fact someone who may have come out in favor of infanticide (though I'd still have to see the context), that's not a pro-choice thing (or even an abortion thing), that's a crazy thing.
There are state agencies in Pennsylvania that are supposed to have inspectors charged with examining conditions in clinics like Gosnell's. The filth alone would have closed him down, without touching privacy, though I understand he taught ultra scan technicians how to cheat the angle so that the fetus was measured by the machine as smaller than it was. He was compelled by law to back up his records, so to me, that speaks to him expecting some agency would be looking into his practices. If there were no inspectors or departments examining is records, why even do that much? I guess I'm saying I'm skeptical that inspectors don't exist, but I agree, there was a multiple agency failure to close Gosnells down.
Furthermore, it's no more and no less "crazy" to want to deny the human rights of neonates than it is to deny the human rights of that same organism a few minutes or even a few months before. Frankly, it's logically consistent - it's not as though a newborn exhibits the higher order sentience or sapience that is a hallmark of our species and the basis for our rights.
In any event, it stands to reason that those in the pro-abortion camp who do believe in restricting personhood from newborns would not condemn Gosnell for infanticide.
As a final aside, pro-abortion and anti-abortion are simple, accurate terms. I assume most people like life and choice as general, nebulous concepts, very few hold the consistent life ethic, and fewer still are anarchists opposed to the very idea of laws banning violence. So I will continue to use accurate terms, thanks.
