WASHINGTON, D.C., May 24, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Democratic congressman has a unique solution for the atrocities perpetrated by late-term abortionists who botch their delivery in utero: Build more abortion facilities.
CNSNews.com reported that New York Congressman Jarrold Nadler said, “Dr. Gosnell represented the poor quality of health care services available in poorer communities” during a hearing on Trent Franks' 20-week “fetal pain” bill on Thursday before the House Judiciary Subcommittee .
“If that means funding a Planned Parenthood clinic in every neighborhood to put guys like Gosnell out of business, so be it,” said Nadler while discussing the bill, which would end abortions beyond 20 weeks on the grounds that the babies could feel pain by that point.
Nadler, who has a 100 percent voting record with NARAL Pro-Choice America, did not explain how funding the nation's most prolific abortion provider would reduce the number of grisly cases of infanticide or elevate the treatment women receive.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Gosnell's former patients would sometimes go to Planned Parenthood after visiting the Women's Medical Society, and "would complain to staff about the conditions there.” There is no record that Planned Parenthood turned their fellow abortionist in to the authorities.
Tanya Reaves, 24, died last July 20 after the treament she received in the Loop Health Center Planned Parenthood in Chicago. The autopsy concluded the abortionist perforated her uterus, then allowed her to hemorrhage for five-and-a-half hours before dropping her off at a hospital – and not telling the medical personnel about the perforation. A complaint filed in Februaty with the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation by Thomas Brejcha, president of the Thomas More Society in Chicago, on behalf of his client, the Pro-Life Action League, said Planned Parenthood's actions constituted the “abanonment of a patient.”
In a less publicized case, Ayanna Byer, 40, sued Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, where she says employees forced her to undergo an abortion against her will, without anesthesia, and which left part of her aborted baby inside her. Her case was filed by the Alliance Defending Freedom.
Nadler's dismissive comments followed similar denials in the Senate, where Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-CA, likened Dr. Gosnell's “house of horrors” to a dirty dentist's office. "Whatever the setting is – if it's a reproductive health care clinic, if it's a dentist, if it's any type of doctor – any kind of clinic, where there are willful violations of the law and violations of human dignity and violations of standard of care, we should call them out," she said.
Nadler called the bill “just another battle of the Republican war on women.”
