Another abortion clinic to be terminated in Gosnell's state?

abortion clinic examination roomState inspectors in Pennsylvania may have prevented another Kermit Gosnell type abortion clinic from continuing to operate in the Keystone State.

Abortionist Kermit Gosnell is currently serving two life prison terms for killing babies born alive during abortions in his Philadelphia abortion clinic – and for running a prescription drug mill. The filthy condition of Gosnell’s clinic were only discovered because of the probe into the drug charges.

In the wake of the Gosnell case, the state has now released an inspection report on Hillcrest Women's Medical Center (HWMC) in Harrisburg, Penn.

Maria Gallagher, who serves with the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, lists some of the violations that inspectors found inside HWMC.

“Not having a fulltime person in charge of operating the facility, there was no registered nurse on duty to assist patients before and after at least 55 abortions had been performed,” Gallagher pointed out. “The facility failed to name and document [the] dosage of anesthesia used on a number of patients.

It was also reported that drugs were not secured—meaning that anyone – including patients – could access them. This means that children’s lives could have been at great risk.

“The staff did not undergo any kind of background check, which is required for operations which deal with teenagers – which deal with those under the age of 18 – and they did have patients who were under the age of 18 [who] they were dealing with on a regular basis,” Gallagher continued.

In addition, the lawn appeared as if it had not been mowed for a long period of time.

In response to the violations – many of which were not listed in this report – the clinic has submitted a plan for correction. Only time – and another state inspection – will determine the degree of HWMC’s compliance.
