Gruesome discoveries at Kermit Gosnell’s “House of Horrors” abortion facility has led to tougher safety regulations and the closure of several Pittsburgh clinics. Apparently Pittsburgh understands that the Pennsylvania Department Of Health was an accomplice in the Gosnell atrocities…
How did the Department of Health fail both women and viable babies? Inspections revealed countless violations and Gosnell was allowed to simply give his word to fix things. Promises were not kept. Inspections ended and things got even worse.
Lax oversight, flimsy promises, no regularly scheduled inspections? Where have I heard these words before? I get chills as I scroll through reports of violations at an abortion clinic in North Carolina. The violations cited at A Preferred Women’s Health Center included:
1) Nurses and doctors were improperly dispensing medication against the manufacturer and poison control instructions. 2) They were releasing women a half-hour after their abortions, which is against state laws. 3) Were not properly identifying the productions of conception (babies) to make sure that all tissue was removed to prevent infection.
The report prepared by Azzie Conley, RN on May 10, 2013 states the violations presented ” an imminent threat to the health and safety of patients and emergency action is required to protect the clients.” The clinic was immediately closed.
Within three days, the abortion clinic has shockingly been re-opened. Why?
On May 15, 2013 I made a call to Ms. Conley of the NC DHHS Acute and Home Care Licensure and Certification Section. I was told that the clinic had reopened because it had “appropriately addressed the violations”. Upon pressing for more information, I was told no details would be given without making a public records request. After making a written request, the response I received on May 16, 2013 from Kevin Howell of the Public Affairs Office was: “I am unsure when these records will be available.”
According to a report on Charlotte News 14, the state allowed A Preferred Women’s Health Center to re-open because they had provided an improvement plan and “promised” to stop inappropriately administering medications.
So the “high standard of care” that this clinic allegedly adheres to hinges upon a weak and flimsy promise? How well did that work out for Gosnell’s patients or should I say victims?
In Pittsburgh it took an FBI raid and a grand jury before they took measures to increase safety at abortion clinics. What will it take in North Carolina?
Will we learn from the horrors we have seen in the Gosnell trial or will we repeat them? A January 2011 grand jury report suggests we should be able to find some common ground to justify exposure.
“It goes beyond the politics of being pro-abortion or anti-abortion. “It is not about that controversy; it is about disregard of the law and disdain for the lives and health of mothers and infants. We find common ground in exposing what happened here, and in recommending measures to prevent anything like this from ever happening again.”
Friends of mine have created an event to expose the Charlotte House of Horrors. I am asking my readers to join me in exposing these atrocities. If you are in North Carolina you can help by emailing Governor McCrory and Ms. Conley. Please share and help our voices be heard!
