Abortionists feel immune from legal requirements
March 27, 2012
Investigative reports in Great Britain have shown evidence that many abortion clinics routinely falsify records, notes Michael Cook of MercatorNet. There is also evidence that the clinics fail to provide counseling for women, and engage in sex-selection abortions. These reports, Cook argues, show that a “servile deference to abortion rights” has prompted authorities to ignore the regulations that are applied to all other medical facilities. The same attitude, he observes, allowed for the operation of a grossly unhygienic abortion clinic in Philadelphia, until law-enforcement officials finally took action. The abortion industry is not being policed, and practitioners feel free to ignore the few rules that impede their work.
