They didn't know what was happening in Gosnell's "clinic", but the National Abortion Federation did.
"It's all about the politics man and greasing palms."
Yup, that's exactly true about the National Abortion Federation.
Because they were too busy at PP just a few miles away where the media was surely to be. The NAF noted the deficiencies at Gosnells clinic, they reported it and they rejected his application. Morally, they were obligated to report to the State, as was Pro Life but legally they were not. The Grand Jury is correct in who is criminally responsible.

If you went to any other clinic and your child's spine was severed, then you found out that there were people who knew about it yet failed to report it, would you consider them "criminally responsible"? If this happened in any other medical setting, they would be.

Women? Where are you getting your information? One woman died Sue due to medical incompetence in administering anesthesia. I'm not saying a disservice hasn't been done, I'm saying there were alot more powerful people that could have and should have closed him down long before the NAF entered that facility.

Reported the findings to the NAF Sue. They are not federally or state funded which leaves them with no legal obligation to report their findings to the state of PA. Morally, they should have. I would have had it been me. But they are not criminally responsible. Hell Gosnell himself is only being charged with 3rd degree murder for the death of the one woman that state of PA is aware of. God only knows how many others there were. That isn't the fault of the NAF.

I found it interesting that the grand jury didn't mention the NAF at all. Couldn't be bothered with them.
However they DID say this on page 157
"The travesty, from this Grand Jury’s perspective, is that DOH could and should
have closed down Gosnell’s clinic years before. Many, if not all, of the violations cited in
the March 12, 2010, document had been present for nearly two decades. The violations
had been apparent when DOH site-reviewers, including Susan Mitchell and Janice
Staloski, inspected the facility in 1989, 1992, and 1993. Yet it was not until law
enforcement discovered the horrendous conditions inside 3801 Lancaster Avenue that
DOH took action to close the clinic."
Additionally:
THis guy was in business for 30 years, PA is a PL state with some of the most restrictive abortion laws there are yet they failed to be as "tough" and "pro active" when it came to actually inspecting and regulating abortion facilities.

Too late. Conservative Christians have looked like backwards primitives for several decades at least. Your so-called "champions," like Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, with their BACKWARD views of women and women's reproductive rights, have lately been very helpful in that respect.

Here's a second:

"Semika Shaw was "just coming into her own as a young woman," Davidson said, when she died in 2002 from an infection caused by a botched abortion in Gosnell's West Philadelphia clinic."

http://articles.philly.com/2011-12-16/news/30...

"I'm saying there were alot more powerful people that could have and should have closed him down long before the NAF entered that facility."

I don't disagree, but here's their mission statement:

"The mission of the National Abortion Federation is to ensure safe, legal, and accessible abortion care, which promotes health and justice for women."

http://www.prochoice.org/about_naf/mission.ht...

I guess that they forgot about the safe part.

OK, bad example. Try this one:

Your sister is planning to use a birthing center. This birthing center had been inspected by the American College of Nurse-Midwives, and they found conditions similar to Gosnell's "clinic"; anesthia being administered by untrained people, dirty conditions, emergency equipment not usable, etc-none of this reported to the proper authorities. Your sister dies and her baby is killed. Do you think that the American College of Nurse-Midwives would be at all responsible?

And why was that?

"Instead, the Pennsylvania
Department of Health abruptly decided, for political reasons, to stop inspecting abortion
clinics at all. The politics in question were not anti-abortion, but pro. With the change of
administration from Governor Casey to Governor Ridge, officials concluded that
inspections would be “putting a barrier up to women” seeking abortions. Better to leave
clinics to do as they pleased, even though, as Gosnell proved, that meant both women and babies would pay."

Well maybe it wasn't about that at all, Ink. A quick glance at a website stating a 20wk fetus is 6.5 inches long was probably all it took. At least you can admit you were wrong. I was beginning to believe you were insufferable.
You guys have a habit of reading too much into inconsequential things and not enough when it's pertinent. It's as if you entire thought process is backward. Luckily you live in a free country where it doesn't necessarily affect anyone but you.
Try to be thankful nobody's tried to criminalize it.
:-|
The pertinent part was that I lost a grandson and you guys consider him nothing more than a dead fetus. Two views on the same subject.

You didn't answer me at all what is the point of measuring only half a baby?

Let me make it a little clearer.

I said I lost a grandson at 20 weeks and he was a human being. foo basically said he was nothing more than a dea 6 in fetus and laughed at the idea of holding him in my arems. I came back with that fact that I did hold him and he was at least 10 inches long.

Then they went on for days about how they measure only half the child for some inexplicable reason. So here we are.
