    "The House of Horrors" Gosnell case

    Do you think there are more Kermit Gosnells in this country? (If you don't know the story, you need to know...)

    If so, what should be done about this?

    We had a Doctor in Las Vegas who ran a mass production colonoscopy clinic. Thing is, he didn't want to wate time or money on sterilizing anything. Eventually, he was caught and his staff eagerly testified against him.

    Assembly-line colonoscopies at clinic described - Las Vegas Sun News

    His employees kept quiet for thousands of procedures.

    So, yeah, there are some very bad medical people. I don't personally know anybody who hasn't heard of this Gosnell case, at least vaguely. I suspect it's all too common.

    I have no idea if there are more, however I believe the more restrictions placed on women the more of these. "doctors" you will see. If abortion is made illegal, they will simply go underground..

    Honestly, this is the first I've heard of this, which surprises me. I get print newspaper 7 days a week, I watch the news regularly and also check in with the news online often as well, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day.

    "Pennsylvania, like other states, permits legal abortion within a regulatory framework. Physicians must, for example, provide counseling about the nature of the procedure. Minors must have parental or judicial consent. All women must wait 24 hours after first visiting the facility, in order to fully consider their decision. But Gosnell's compliance with such requirements was casual at best. At the Women's Medical Society, the only question that really mattered was whether you had the cash. Too young? No problem. Didn't want to wait? Gosnell provided same-day service".

    So what is it you're saying, pb? That restrictions on abortions need to be eased even more?

    The more you restrict it, the more they will go elsewhere, that's the unintended consequence.
