The mantra of the self-styled “pro-choice” politician is that they want abortion to be “safe, legal and rare”. We saw new evidence at the recent press conference that “rare” is a lie, since 41% of all New York City pregnancies end in abortion.
Now, we have yet more proof that it is a damnable lie to say that “legal” abortion is “safe”.
In one of the most horrific news stories I have ever seen — and I have a very strong stomach — it has been revealed that a Philadelphia abortionist outright murdered a mother on the operating table, and murdered at least 7 babies who had been born alive during the course of an abortion. The account of the conditions in his abortion clinic are staggering — disgustingly unsanitary, barbaric beyond words. The details of this story are not for the faint at heart.
What is most infuriating, though, is that the government of Philadelphia knew about this and did nothing. Repeated complaints were ignored. Public health authorities hadn’t inspected the place in eighteen years.
As the news story says, “The inspections stopped completely in 1993 because of what prosecutors said was the pro-abortion rights attitude that set in after Democratic Gov. Robert Casey, an abortion foe, left office”.
Read that sentence again, and weep with anger and frustration.
Then ask yourself, why would we think that New York is any different?
Nobody has any way of knowing whether we have among us another “house of horrors” like the Philadelphia abattoir. There are dozens of unlicensed store-front abortion clinics in New York City preying upon the poor and immigrants. Everyone in New York City government, so many of whom like to tout how “pro-choice” they are, looks the other way. No mayor, City Council Speaker, Health Commissioner, Public Advocate, or District Attorney has ever — ever — conducted a systematic investigation of these places. No “pro-choice” organization has ever — ever — called for the elimination of these unlicensed holes. No medical association has ever — ever — called for the prosecution of the monsters in their profession.
Maybe our Health Department and City Council, instead of targeting pregnancy support centers, could turn their attention to doing their job and protecting the public from unlicensed abortionists who abuse and lie to their patients and murder babies. (Not that the slaughter that goes on in licensed clinics is any better — no abortion clinic is “safe” for unborn babies.)
Or, maybe the “pro-abortion attitude” that prevails here will continue until we are horrified by a discovery, on our own doorstep, that “legal and safe” is a lie. Always has been, always will be.
