In a speech given on the Kansas State Capitol steps last January, I said KFL’s 2011 legislative objectives reflected the recommendations of the Pennsylvania grand jury that investigated “House of Horrors” abortionist Kermit Gosnell.
Gosnell’s employees have already pleaded guilty to charges of murder, including the killing of one pregnant mother, and the routine killing of born-alive late-term babies. If you have the stomach for it, read the entire report.
The Gosnell grand jury said that to prevent this from ever happening again, one thing that had to change was for state inspectors to be allowed to review abortion files onsite. They pointed out that this, and every one of their strongly-worded recommendations, had been agreed upon by every member of the jury, representing the gamut of opinion on abortion.
Now, the Hodes-Nauser Center for Women’s Health clinic, with abortion lawyers at the Center for Reproductive Rights, have sued our state’s newly revised abortion clinic regulations that have replaced the temporary ones they sued in July.
The abortion industry complained loudly about the first set of regulations that dictated janitorial and surgical room sizes, temperature ranges, and post-op retention times. Some of the abortionists’ concerns were addressed in the second (final) set, but, as predicted, they remain very unhappy.
The main reason? Because they resent the new mandate for two annual clinic inspections during regular business hours, during which “all records shall be available at the facility for review” by the state health department (KDHE).
Abortion was legalized with the slogan: “Make abortion safe and legal.” In reality, legality has protected abortionists, not women, and it certainly didn’t protect viable babies in Pennsylvania, nor here in Kansas, despite laws firmly in place. No, we have only one law to thank for bringing down Gosnell’s 20-year reign of terror: the law against selling illegal drugs. It was drug inspectors who turned him in!
The drug folks helped us here in Kansas, too, when Tiller-friend Larry Buening, the long-time head of the Board of Healing Arts was finally removed—not because of our long-time contention that he facilitated illegal late-term abortions here, but because of his inaction to stop a pill mill doctor and his wife, accused of causing 54 deaths. Go drug enforcement agents!
When a new and unbiased director replaced Buening, he only lasted a year. He was asked to resign at the same meeting where he was attempting to get the Board to investigate Kansas late-term abortionists!
The abortion industry and those protecting it here have gone to great lengths to ruin Phill Kline. Now it appears their political friends selectively destroyed evidence— anything to prevent access to their files by law enforcement. Now they insist health inspectors not have access either!
39 years after pro-abortion feminists claimed legality was meant to make abortion ‘safe’ for women, I have a question: With no law enforcement or health inspections allowed, how, exactly, is that supposed to happen?
